  1. Dizrhythmia is my favorite.
  2. I have one of their albums, Dreams Dreams or something like that. I haven't played it in years, but there are a couple of great songs on it.
  3. Manson Family + Up With People = Polyphonic Spree
  4. Ray Charles Neil Young Stevie Wonder Bob Dylan Jeff Beck Ray Davies
  5. Has anyone heard State Songs by John Linnell? I found an advance copy at a yard sale. He wrote a song for a bunch of states, but they weren't THE state songs, just weird little ditties with a state name in them. There are 16 tracks on this CD, but I read that he completed all of the states. Woman says, "I thought he was with you." Woman says, "I thought he was with you." They slowly back away from him At best he's very interesting His brushes with success were just an accident No one likes New Hampshire Man Broken-hearted old man of New Hampshire Flower-sniffing poet of New Hampshi
  6. I would agree that Zappa is my favorite, followed in no particular order by Adrian Belew David Hidalgo Jeff Beck Dave Davies Steve Hillage Steve Cropper Neil Young Steve Stills Tom Verlaine Richard Lloyd the guy in Talk Talk Hendrix/Page/Clapton Albert King Albert Lee Andy Partridge/ David Gregory Richard Thompson Roy Buchanon John Fogerty Sonny Sharrock John McLaughlin Robert Quine Don Rich Eddie Hazel Ernie Isley Teeny Hodges Smoky Hormel Nels Cline Too many more to get them all. The lists in the Guitar Player and Rolling Stone are ridiculous, Adrian Belew wa
  7. That one line in Lady Marmalade is pretty good. I have the 45 of Shock The Monkey in German, and 99 luftballoons in German. Also, I Want To Hold Your Hand in German. I Think We're Alone Now by Lene Lovich in Japanese is pretty cool.
  8. Check out The Beastie Boys In Sound From Way Out, Money Mark,Dirty Dozen Brass Band,Sly & The Family Stone,The Meters,Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Beck-Midnite Vultures,Tower of Power,MFSB,Maceo Parker,Ray Charles ,James Brown, I could go on and on, but I wont.
  9. They are an excellent Texas Swing band. Think of Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys. Google 'em.
  10. Meatloaf sang on a Nugent album before he hit it big with Bat Out Of Hell. Andy Summers was in The Animals before the Police. I guess that's not a lead singer, but oh well.
  11. The apron would have to have the Wonder Bread logo.
  12. I wish Bread was still together so I could be a BreadHead and follow them around selling grill cheeses.
  13. Tumbling Dice? It's more of a rock tune. The biggest country crossover I can think of is Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music by Ray Charles. Yeah, the Stones had a ton of them: Dear Doctor, You Got The Silver, etc. Phish does a great version of Rocky Top.
  14. Buffalo Springfield/ Iron Butterfly (When I was 9) Styx Blue Oyster Cult Rush/Uriah Heep Van Halen Doobie Bros. Journey/Montrose Cheap Trick/Sweet Randy Newman Mellencamp/Heart Fleetwood Mac (Tusk Tour) R.E.M./Dream Syndicate Pat Metheny Joan Baez Stevie Ray Vaughn Leon Russell/ Edgar Winter Robin Trower David Lindley (at least 5 times) Lynyrd Skynyrd B-52's Tori Amos Sam Phillips Michelle Shocked Zero (many times) Grisman/Fleck/O'Connor Pentangle/John Renbourn Neil Young/Sonic Youth Grateful Dead (10 times) Phish (8 times) Robyn Hitchcock (4-5 times) David Byrne
  15. Memory of a Free Festival-Bowie The Night Chicago Died-Paper Lace
  16. Neil Young & Crazy Horse. Play Cinnamon Girl as loud as you can stand it. I don't know what grunge means, music isn't a contest, AIC and SG both rocked.
  17. You never know exactly what Neil means, and maybe he didn't always either. "Mr. Soul" Having the momentum of a song on the charts, the Buffalo Springfield went into a studio in New York on January 9, 1967. They cut their first version of Neil's new song, "Mr Soul." Having a riff very similar to the Stone's "I Can't Get no Satisfaction," it was a hard-driving rock song. In the lyrics, Young excoriated the music business that he was now deeply in the vortex of, using the metaphoric "Mr. Soul" to represent it. The theme is similar to the just-released Byrds' hit, "So You Want to be a Rock a
  18. Is this it? Daddy Don't You Walk So Fast ( Wayne Newton ) The love between the two of us was dying And it got so bad I knew I had to leave But halfway down that highway when I turned around I saw My little daughter running after me Crying Daddy, don't you walk so fast Daddy, don't you walk so fast Daddy, slow down some 'cause you're makin' me run Daddy, don't you walk so fast Now, it broke my heart to tell my little daughter That her daddy had to run to catch a train She had no way of knowin' I was leavin' home for good I turned around and there she was again As she sa
  19. Iron Man=The new Free Bird
  20. I pulled out the Sgt Pepper movie soundtrack (Bee Gees/Frampton) for the first time in a while the other day. I hated it when it first came out, but now it sounds great. Steve Martin on Maxwell's Silver Hammer is hi-larious. And most of the other tracks have the Jeff Beck Group of that era. Oh, yeah songs that are hard not to like; MMMMBop, read the lyrics some time.
  21. Page & Diddy used part of "Kashmir" didn't they? On SNL?
  22. Or, "Censorship Is Ugly" by skook
  23. IF I ever get married, I would choose "Too Drunk To [bleep]"-Dead Kennedy's.
  24. To own a small recording studio in my house to record and accompany myself and other musicians. Wait, I already have that, but do it for free.
