you must be a true classic rocker

Well, I am an experienced fart.

Take your turn, edna. Make it rough, like Tina Turner.

"Y? know, every now and then

I think you might like to hear something from us

Nice and easy

But there?s just one thing

You see we never ever do nothing

Nice and easy" - Tina's introduction to Proud Mary

This is a real stretch

but

Otis Redding and Jerry Lee Lewis did cover versions of (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction. I suppose you could say that Ron Wood "covered" Satisfaction when he played it with the Stones, since he wasn't part of the original recording.

Pretty weak, huh?

Am I totally off-track?

No off-track at all, Bazooka... you´re a hard one!! :laughing: Yet that´s not what I have in mind...

I found some old Rolling Stone magazines the other day... there was an interview with some rock-pop-folk icon where he talked about Otis Redding recording one of his hits (icon´s hits), thought it was never released. He also wrote another song for Jerry Lee Lewis, which he also recorded but never released (that song was on one of the icon´s album). And he wrote a song for Ron Wood, which he did record and release in his first album.

Guess you must know who´s the icon now... I´ll tell you later what the songs were in case you still don´t guess. I admit this one is tricky... but you wanted a tough one!

:bow: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

edna, this one is spanking Google.

Are you talking about Ron Wood's I've Got My Own Album to Do? I can't find writing credits on the web. Keith Richards (and Jagger) wrote some songs for that, but neither of them would seem to qualify for the "folk" part of "some rock-pop-folk icon".

Dylan is a likely candidate for "icon", but I can't make a connection to Otis or Jerry Lee. Because Otis Redding died in 1967, I can't think of many others.

(I think I remember some story about Otis doing Neil Young's Mr. Soul.)

Good, Bazooka, this was very very hard but yes, it´s Bob Dylan. :thumbsup:

"I was going to record "Just like a Woman" and I met Otis Redding in the studio... he heard it and he recorded it... I don´t think it´s been released"

"I wrote "To be alone with you" for Jerry Lee Lewis... he was in the next door studio recording an album... we gave him the tape..."

(Both are quotes from "Rolling Stone Magazine", 1969.)

He wrote "Seven Days" for Ron Wood, who recorded it and released it in his first solo album (1979).

Guess you should have read this interview to know it exactly, so as you were right, it´s your turn. :bow: :bow:

I'd pay to hear those unreleased recordings. To Be Alone With You is such a cool song, and perfect for Jerry Lee.

Just to nitpick, Seven Days was on Ron Wood's Gimme Some Neck but that wasn't the first of his solo albums.

OK detectives, here's the next case

[*] green

[*] blue

[*] purple

[*] red

(Yes, Karhul. They are all colors, but that's not the deal. The colors were connected with individual parts of a big, big thing.)

OMG, Bazooka... Ron Wood had THREE albums bfore "Gimme some neck"! :doh: I didn´t know that at all... honestly. I´ve never liked Ronnie very much as I missed Mick taylor with the Stones... but thanks for sharing your knowledge! :thumbsup:

I´m trying to find out your answer... might take long but we´ll see... :drummer:

Purple pills

I take a couple uppers

I down a couple downers

But nothing compares

To these BLUE and yellow PURPLE pills...

RED pills, blue pills, and GREEN

Big pills, (that?s ill)

Mescaline

I take a couple uppers

I down a couple downers

But nothing compares

To these blue and yellow purple pills

I don´t think it´s got to do with "Purple Pills" by Eminem (you say "individual parts of big big thing... that´s why I doubt...)?

I highly doubt it's got to do with them all being used in song titles, maybe there's one band or person who's released songs with these colours in their titles? - that's too obvious, although it is a connection... :stars:

Jimi-Hendrix

Bold As Love

Anger he smiles, towering in shiny metallic PURPLE armour

Queen jealousy, envy waits behind him

Her fiery GREEN gown sneers at the grassy ground

BLUE are the life-giving waters taken for granted,

They quietly understand

Once happy turquoise armies lay opposite ready,

But wonder why the fight is on

But they?re all bold as love, yes, they?re all bold as love

Yeah, they?re all bold as love

Just ask the axis

My RED is so confident that he flashes trophies of war and

Ribbons of euphoria

Orange is young, full of daring,

But very unsteady for the first go round

My yellow in this case is not so mellow

In fact I?m trying to say it?s frigthened like me

And all these emotions of mine keep holding me from, eh,

Giving my life to a rainbow like you

But, I?m eh , yeah, I?m bold as love

Yeah, yeah

Well I?m bold, bold as love (hear me talking, girl)

I?m bold as love

Just ask the axis (he knows everything)

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Could it be this one?

:googly:
