  1. I'm not sure about John Deacon but I know Brian May and Roger Taylor provided backup vocals for their songs.
  2. Your Time is Gonna Come Communication Breakdown Friends That's the Way Over the Hills and Far Away Nobodys Fault But Mine Carouselambra And I'll add a third vote for When the Levee Breaks, great song.
  3. Besides what has already been mentioned, here's a few more: Willie Dixon - "I am the Blues" Little Walter - "His Best : The Chess 50th Anniversary Collection" Otis Spann - "Blues Never Die" B.B. King - "Live in Cook County Jail" Buddy Guy - "A Man and the Blues"
  4. The Spanish cover of Sticky Fingers.
  5. How about "Am I Evil" by Diamond Head and later covered by Metallica which definitely borrows from "Mars the Bringer of War" by Holst.
  6. An early Fleetwood Mac album, "English Rose", long before they went MOR.
  7. "The Gilded Palace of Sin" is a great album. The song "Sin City" is one of my favorites. Parsons was also a member of The Byrds for a brief time and was largely responsible for their shift towards country music with the "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" album.
  8. The Beatles "Come Together" - Here come old flat-top he come grooving up slowly. borrowed from Chuck Berry's "You Can't Catch Me" - Here come old flat-top He was movin' up with me. There was a lawsuit involved. Check out the songfact for "Come Together".
  9. I believe he is just a session/studio musician. I don't think he's ever released anything on his own.
  10. "Living on a Thin Line" - The Kinks
  11. Clarence Walker (played by Eddie Murphy) on an old Saturday Night Live episode, where he claims he was the 5th Beatle.
  12. Traffic? Dave Mason, Steve Winwood, Jim Gordon, etc.
  13. How about Arthur Alexander. The Stones did "You Better Move On", Dylan did "Sally Sue Brown" and the Beatles did "Anna (Go to Him)".
  14. Another good quote (paraphrased) from Keith... "Brian and I agreed that he, Brian, wouldn't live very long. I remember saying, You'll never make 30, man, and he said, I know."
  15. Towards the end, the drugs and drinking made it impossible for Brian to contribute anything to the band as well.
  16. A pict is one of an ancient people of northern Britain. In the ninth century they joined with the Scots to form a kingdom later to become Scotland. So the pict is the person talking in the song. As far as what he is saying, according to allfloyd.com, here are possible lyrics: Aye an' a bit of Mackeral settler rack and ruin ran it doon by the haim, 'ma place well I slapped me and I slapped it doon in the side and I cried, cried, cried. The fear a fallen down taken never back the raize and then Craig Marion, get out wi' ye Claymore out mi pocket a' ran doon, doon the middin stain picking the fiery horde that was fallen around ma feet. Never he cried, never shall it ye get me alive ye rotten hound of the burnie crew. Well I snatched fer the blade O my Claymore cut and thrust and I fell doon before him round his feet. Aye! A roar he cried frae the bottom of his heart that I would nay fall but as dead, dead as 'a can be by his feet; de ya ken? ...and the wind cried back. As far as the song itself, it sounds mostly like a Roger Waters creation to me.
  17. I'm not sure how much this is true but I had read before, on some website I cannot remember, that besides being a love song, "There She Goes" also had an encripted double meaning, referring to taking heroin. Of course, heroin is shot up, "pulsing through one's veins" if you will. On another interesting note, again, take it for what it's worth, some people found it odd that Sixpence None the Richer covered this "love" song. The lyrics are definitely sung to a woman and SNTR's lead singer is also a woman. Sixpence picked up lesbian fans because of it.
  18. Just off the top of my head: Led Zeppelin covers - You Shook Me, I Can't Quit You Baby, Traveling Riverside Blues. Plus they had a nasty habit of taking writing credit for songs they didn't write. They were forced to give Willie Dixon co-writing credit for Whole Lotta Love. The Who covered two Stones songs The Last Time and Under My Thumb, plus Motoring, Young Man Blues. There are also a few more covers on the Odds and Sods album.
  19. I'm not sure how true this is but I read that "1983, Merman ..." is a sci-fi story about a man and a woman escaping from a catastrophe while using a machine to go underwater. Instead of a mermaid, Jimi is a "merman" and living or escaping underwater.
  20. On the funnier side, I've always loved "Stay Up Late" by the Talking Heads.
  21. I believe the song is called "Here Comes the Man" performed by Boom Boom Room. But I'm not sure if the song is released anywhere.
  22. I'm not sure who it was written for but Brenda Lee's version hit the charts in early 1972. Elvis' version was later that same year.
  23. Matt is correct. Great song. I just wanted to add that this song also appears on the compilation CD "New Wave Hits of the 80's: Just Can't Get Enough, Vol. 1".
  24. I just want to clear up an issue here. Per pdxchump's post: (This is a strange stance, given that the Stones launched their career with covers of blues songs without compensating the original artists). Partially untrue. Have the Stones covered old Blues songs? Yes. Did they steal from the authors? No. Covering a song and sampling a song are two totally different things. An example of covering is the Stones recording a Muddy Waters song. Many famous and creative musicians have covered other artists songs. The list is endless. The fact is that the Stones have always credited the original songwriters of these covers. They've never claimed they've written something that they haven't. Even as recent as their last album, they credited k.d. lang as a co-author of Anybody Seen My Baby because they realized it sounded like her song Constant Craving. Nobody asked them to do it, there were no lawsuits. An example of sampling is The Verve taking an actual previous recording of the song (The Last Time), and sticking into their song (Bittersweet Symphony). They didn't write it, they didn't perform it, they didn't "cover" it, they sampled it. The bad guy in this situation is Allen Klein. Klein was the Stones former manager in the late 60's and he screwed the Stones out quite a bit of money in song royalties. He owns the publishing rights to The Last Time and he makes most of the money off of the song. It may be credited to Jagger and Richards but Klein gets the money. He's the one who gave the Verve a hard time about sampling The Last Time. He's the one who had to approve the release of Bittersweet Symphony. He's the one who demanded the royalties from The Verve. He's the one who sold the song to be used in a Nike commercial. The actual members of The Rolling Stones had no part of the dispute between Klein and The Verve.
