  1. That would have to include The Power To The Punk People Polka by The Happy Wanderers, along with the awesome video. I wouldn't say the clarinet and accordian "poison" rock, but they do make it ill.
  2. Old MacDonald Had A Farm ? Sorry. The Devil made me do it.
  3. Wheels Of Fire - Cream (studio + live)
  4. Good catch, edna. Bob says he hadn't noticed the typo. He'll see to it personally that they get it right next time it's re-issued.
  5. Don't think this was questioned, but here's a smidgen of trivia. "Sound effects of fighting, gunfire, airplanes, and bagpipes were used. The pipe band was the Royal Scot's Dragoon Guards, a Highland regiment. Lead singer Eric Burdon tape-recorded them at a school and used the pipe music during the middle of the song along the war sound effects." source: Songfacts (<) The music fan's best friend for smidgens of trivia.
  6. From the Between The Buttons album Track Listing 1. Let's Spend the Night Together 2. Yesterday's Papers 3. Ruby Tuesday 4. Connection 5. She Smiled Sweetly 6. Cool, Calm and Collected 7. All Sold Out 8. My Obsession 9. Who's Been Sleeping Here 10. Complicated 11. Miss Amanda Jones 12. Something Happened to Me Yesterday
  7. Huh? Bob Dylan's Hurricane is about the boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter Now all the criminals in their coats and their ties Are free to drink martinis and watch the sun rise While Rubin sits like Buddha in a ten-foot cell An innocent man in a living hell. That's the story of the Hurricane, But it won't be over till they clear his name And give him back the time he's done. Put in a prison cell, but one time he could-a been The champion of the world. "Hurricane" Carter's story was the subject of the movie Hurricane starring Denzel Washington.
  8. I always thought it was "Nicholas Westley Harding".
  9. Buffalo Soldier Boy Bob Marley & The Wailers + The Shirelles Ain't No Sunshine Of Your Love Bill Withers + Cream
  10. Well, you're getting warmer. Sorry. You're not a winner this time.
  11. Tighten Up-Up And Away Archie Bell & The Drells + The Fifth Dimension
  12. Let It Be Bop A Lula The Beatles + Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps
  13. This is the rockiest Emo (<) before his makeover. Probably the toughest time in anyone's life is when you have to murder a loved one because they're the devil. ~ Emo Philips
  14. Moog. I always thought. What about AC/DC's It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock 'N' Roll) ?
  15. Back on the topic of Musical Families 1950s Rockabilly brother and sister duo The Collins Kids (<)
  16. Thank you, Danielj. I've told this story in another thread: When I got the Axis: Bold As Love CD, I was disappointed because the cover looked like this But I found if you fold the cover piece around inside-out, you get the genuine original album cover art (one of my all-time favorites). My CD has mysteriously disappeared, but I really want to find out who the artist is.
  17. Maybe they are just "Minnesota's First Family of Rampant Self-Promotion and Name-Dropping". This was a side road I travelled down when looking up the Raitts. Most of the Petersons do have some impressive creditials, though (work with David Sanborn, Steve Miller and other biggies from Prince to Donny Osmond).
  18. We're Not Gonna Take It - The Who We're Not Gonna Take It - Twisted Sister
  19. Jerry Lee Lewis ("The Killer"), country music star Mickey Gilley, and troubled televangelist Jimmy Swaggart are cousins. A little research revealed that Jerry Lee's sister, Linda Gail Lewis is also a piano player and has recorded with Van Morrison.
  20. Thank you edna. But I only really know a lot about the things I know a lot about. I've got a good memory for trivia and I like to do research. What's in my head is stuff I've taken an interest in, and doesn't include much after the late 70s.
  21. Spenca, I've had my Diddley and I feel fine. I visited your source: "Paul is Dead ... Not!" at amuseyourself.com If you read down, there's a part where they debunk all of the "evidence" cited by the Paul-is-Deadheads. Anyway, can anyone really think Paul died, and the other Beatles left clues about it, and the McCartney we see walking around today is a perfect imposter? Edit: MyMan, I've realized that often people don't know when I'm kidding around. I usually joke with a straight face, and don't telegraph that I'm not being completely serious. I really don't care for graemlins
