    Default Mistaken Post re Billy Johnson Removed

    I have removed a prior (mistaken) post regarding Billy Johnson's win at Daytona last month. Sorry about that.

    Humble Pie, one of the 5 greatest rock bands of all time. Have I told you my Peter Frampton story? I met him in London in 1972 when I was 17 and he gave me a ride in his Aston-Martin, took me to his flat, played guitar for me, and gave me a promo copy of his first solo album. I swear, true story. To this day, I listen to "1971 Humble Pie LIVE Rockin' the Fillmore." One of the 10 best rock albums of all time.

    And then British authorities escorted you to the airport for stalking violations....

    Say what you want. True story. Spent the summer of 1972 after I graduated High School with a backpack, pup-tent, sleeping bag and Eurail Pass traveling all over Europe, smoking hash, screwing Scandanavian girls, and skirting the law big time. The Peter Frampton meeting was really amazing, and if my record collection was not stolen in the early 1980s, I would still have that promo copy of Frampton's first solo album that he gave me. What risks did you take when you were a kid, Mr. Conservative?

    I was just kidding Richard. That is a really cool story.

    What risks did I take when I was a kid? The most daring thing I can remember is stealing that record collection from the dude going to law school.

    Great story, even if hash and Scandinavian nookie can cloud the memory. What are the other four greatest rock bands of all time?

    Rolling Stones
    Jimi Hendrix Experience
    Led Zeppelin
    Bob Marley and the Wailers (technically Reggae, but I think they qualify as a rock band)
    Soundgarden

    Those are the six bands in my top 5. No, the Beatles don't make it.

    ^^^ Glad I could help you enjoy your breakfast. Soundgarden is the best rock band to be originally formed in the last 30+ years. "SuperUnknown" the best rock album in that same amount of time.

    May I humbly submit, for your consideration, three of the most talented and under-appreciated individuals in the history of rock:

    RUSH ~ Live ~ Working Man ~ 2002 ~ HD - YouTube

    - Don't even bother listening to that if you don't have a good stereo system or headphones, though...

    I listened to them a lot too. Never met any of them though. Cool story. Did you see Mick Jagger at the white house singing Howling Wolf tunes this past week?

    Only heard about Mick at the White House on the news, didn't really see it.

    Do you remember the Stones song "Respectable" from 1978's "Some Girls" LP. "Now we're respected in society . . . we're talkin' heroin with the President, yes it's a problem sir, but it can be bent."

    Now for my '60s rock rant. Why is Eric Clapton an international superstar, and Jack Bruce is in the gutter? When they were in Cream together in the late '60s, Bruce wrote almost all the songs, sang almost all the songs (one of the greatest rock singers ever), played almost all the instruments, including bass, keyboards, rhythim guitar, violin, horns, percussion (yes I know Ginger Baker was the drummer) etc. etc. Clapton was just Bruce's talented side-man on the guitar.

    Another thing about Clapton. Him covering Bob Marley's "I shot the Sheriff" is like Pat Boone covering Little Richard's "Tooty-Fruity."

    I used to not really "get" Rush, until someone told me to try listening to the drums. Then I got it.

    Rush has always been one of my favorite groups. They had/have a unique sound and style. I've never been a Clapton fan.

    1. Re Clapper's fame versus Bruce and Baker (but not John Mayall in the pre-Cream days): Seems like guitar players often get the glory. As to Baker, I do remember references to his talent in his Mini Cooper S.

    2. "I shot the Sheriff": Must have just been a flesh wound. You seem to be pretty frisky these days.
