There are a couple of songs off of GnR's "Spaghetti Incident" where the backup overshadows Axl.  Particularly "Ain't it fun" (Michael Monroe from Hanoi Rocks). 

Maybe Mick on "You're so vain"?



Spaghetti Incident is NOT GnR, it's Axl and a bunch of flunkies :evil:

but on track, Alison Krauss kills on Whiskey Lullaby, a song that in just Brad Paisley's hands would be a snooze.

OK, which one is Boz's true identity?  Ali or MDS?  From today's chat:

Quote
Q: 46
If I’m not mistaken, George Blanda finally retired at 46; Vinatieri is now 46 and 3 for 8 with several missed PATs. Like rockers dying at 27, do kickers have an age 46 ceiling? Is there an explanation besides age cuz this seems sudden. Sure would be neat to see the GOAT kick til 50.

A: Thomas Boswell
OK, we have a winner. Of something. I just don't know what.

"Like rockers dying at 27, do kickers have an age 46 ceiling?"

I think we have a Media Ghouls Alert: The 27 Club is one of my least-favorite pop culture references. Maybe you're just showing your (our) age.

Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Brian Jones all died at 27 between '69-and-'71. (And like many people I'm not entirely over it yet.) Bluesman Robert Johnson died at 27 in the '30's and Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse more recently. It has been shown to be statistically meaningless. That didn't stop Eric Burdon (Animals) from writing a song "27 Forever" a few years ago.

BTW, I heard Drew Carey's Friday Night Freak Out on the radio on Little Steven's Underground Garage (Sirius) for the first time the other night. Yes, the same Drew Caray from the Price Is Right. It was FABULOUS. I had (almost) never heard ANY of the singers or songs --they were all so obscure-- but great. He's digging up rockers who are "in the Minnesota R&R Hall of Fame." Lots of current stuff.

All the Garage DJs are career-long rock performers --like "Little Steven" Van Zandt, long-time Bruce Springsteen side man, or Genya Raven of the long-ago Goldie and the Gingerbreads. They all know everybody in the business with lots of inside stuff. My jaw dropped when Palmyra Delran said that a certain Ramones song had been written by "Joey...MY Ramone" and you're pretty sure you know what that means.

Anyway, I think Caray may have more great stuff --music influences, back stories, than ANY of them. Which I'd never have guessed. No commercials, but once in a while Bob Dylan or Keitrh Richards will do a 10 second plug: "This is Keith Richards. You are listening to the Underground Garage. So, lets see how much noise we can make...until the neighbors...call the cops."

Sorry to digress --but after THAT awful Skins game, why not. Little Steven was once asked what on earth the common thread was in all the music his station played since it crosses almost 60 years of rock, includes song that just came out this month and seems to defy genres by crossing about a dozen of them. He said, "Anybody who influenced the Ramones. Anybody influenced by the Ramones. And the Ramones."

PS: Glad to see the good Post piece on Iggy Pop over the weekend. How ironic, now everybody's fawning over him --the New Yorker did him, too. They ignored him for 50 years when he was rolling around on broken glass on stage. How do you (finally) get attention for being a Stooge and an Idiot? Just get VERY, VERY old. Iggy did a show this summer --totally insane energy at 72-- and the reviewer said it was the best live rock show he'd ever seen, had the crowd going carzy for an hour, and, for a grade, his headline was "F%$ it --10."

(I like almost everything --even opera. Just NO SHOW TUNES.)

I had no idea:

"In the early 1970's, the two future Cars lead singers, Ric Ocasek and Benjamin Orr, were members of a Boston folk trio called Milkwood. At that time, the two went by their real names, Richard Otcasek and Benjamin Orzechowski. Jas Goodkind rounded out the guitar-and-vocal "

Milkwood and Goodkind I did not know.  The other two tried to make their names easier to pronounce.

I don't know how many of you ever heard the take off on that song by a Boston group, The Fools:  Psycho Chicken (Psycho Chicken, What the F_ck, Cluck-cluck-cluck, cluck-cluck-cluck-cluck-cluck).  They also did a country tribute, "Life S-cks, and then you die."

At the conference I’m attending the closing event featured performances by Snoop Dogg and Lynyrd Skynyrd (not together). Snoop isn’t my thing but seeing Skynyrd live is almost a spiritual experience, especially with the way they handle Freebird (with video of Ronny Van Zant singing the second verse while his hat is placed on a microphone stand.  There’s only one original member left, plus Ronny’s younger brother, but they still sound great.
