Can't get the link to load right now, bad connection going on but LOL that's a headline! The Velvet Underground is (to me) one of the greatest bands of all time and just to read that headline is pretty neat. I was a second-gen Underground groupie but man, I'm getting old...
Purely tempting the element that killed the cat, but how about a post with your top 5 ALL TIME rock-bands? We've got a lot in common musically and would be interested. Eh?
Oh boy....top 5?? That is hard..are we talking from our own era or from all time? I know as soon as I list 5, 5 more will come to mind. :) Quickly, before I think about it too much - Cream, Johnny Winter, CCR, Allman Brothers, ZZ Top (the early ZZ Top)...I think I could do this all day. :)I prefer pre-Beatles rock and roll though...who is the King of Rock and Roll? Ike Turner of course!
Thanks for the list. Rocket 88 was a great one of course, but I'll stick with Chuck Berry as my King of Rock. Fine but interesting picks I think for your top rock bands considering the direction you go in other genres. Have to list Little Feat, CCR, Springsteen (with the E-Streeters up until Born in the USA), the Who, and the Animals (with Eric Burdon) in the strictly rock-arena. There's so many that greats that are crossovers and undefinable like Cash and Dylan and Jerry Lee etc.
Eric Burdon was the only Brit rocker worth a damn...have you heard Jerry Lee's latest CD? It's called Mean Old Man. The Killer isn't going away quietly, is he? :)
No, haven't heard it yet but will have to look nto it now. He's always been mad at something. I remember one thing in particular that pissed him off. I spent a few nights in Memphis back in the late 80's, doing Beale Street. In one of his many divorces, one of his ex-wives got custody of his bar. The first thing she did was hang an enormous painting of Tom Cruise directly over the bar, just to piss him off (must have been 12 feet long)!
