  • Joe Pampena Syd Barrett rules, the band wasn't the same without him. Interstellar Overdrive is definitely my favorite Floyd song... make sure the lights are off, put some headphones on, start the song, and get ready for a crazy ride.
  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site I just got a live boot with a killer version of Interstellar on it......and an even rarer Grantchester Meadows and a beyond rare live Atom Heart Mother. The boot is from 1970 and is great. The above mentioned blog put out Vol.2 of this set today with another 10 cd's worth of material. glad you like it. I stopped listening pretty much without Syd.

The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site Through the magic of Altered Body Chemistry, America in the eighties has devolved into an enormous
hatchery for consumers. Corporate policy (itself influenced by drugs and alcohol) has decreed the
breeding and maintenance of hundreds of millions of helpless illiterates, destined to spend their lives
buying useless shit. When the shopping spree is over, the victims of this policy will gather in sad little
groups and show their 'treasures' to each other, discussing how they're going to keep them, since the
government is always trying to tax them away. from the Real Frank Zappa Book.....nv

  • Terry Greene A very brilliant, if insane, man as we all know now. I remember stalking the Rolling Stones in 1965 and lurking in the halls of the RCA Victor recording studios on Sunset only to see Mr. Spector arrive in Mod suit and dark glasses. My fellow stalkers did not know who he was and decided we should give up against my protestations that he was PHIL SPECTOR, for the love of mac 'n cheese, and the Stones must be on their way. They were unconvinced and took me home. ;(
  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site Rats! Some people, man, I tell ya. QOTSA called a friend of my mine and I to come down and hang with them while they recorded in the big room there.....Elvis' old room and a fav of Frank Sinatra's as well. We got there and QOTSA were gone so we jammed all night. I broke 3 bass drum heads. I guess they thought we were with the band and they just kept bringing new bass drums. My friend, Tex Mosely, of the Hangmen, was on lead guitar, Gary from the Bad Brains on bass, Gilby Clark of Slash's Snake Pit on rhythm guitar, and me breaking the drums. Great room. We went into the vault and saw all the masters of Aretha, Frank, Elvis, Rod Stewart and everybody. it was pretty amazing.
  • Terry Greene Dang, Ruben. You must be one helluva convincing drummer. I can just picture it. The breaking of bass drum heads repeatedly just made you more believable as a "professional musician! P.S. Who's QOTSA?
  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site Queens of the Stone Age........i use a wood beater on the pedal...........loud as hell but one does have to be a little careful.
  • Terry Greene I should have known it. You ARE a real musician! My mom warned me about you guys...
  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site Be sure to take her advice!
  • Terry Greene Too late but thanks anyway...
  • Terry Greene Never thought these words would be spoken but Tina was actually lucky to be married to Ike rather than Phil who was later convicted of murder. Ronnie Spector, lead singer of the Ronettes (Be My Baby), did marry Phil and reported in her biography that he kept her "as a near-prisoner and limited her opportunities to pursue her musical ambitions. She said that he would force her to watch the film Citizen Kane to remind her she would be nothing without him. Spector's domineering attitude led to the dissolution of their marriage. Bennett was forbidden to speak to the Rolling Stones or tour with the Beatles, because Phil Spector feared that she would be unfaithful.

    Furthermore, Ronnie claimed Spector showed her a gold coffin with a glass top in his basement, promising to kill and display her if she left him. During Spector's reclusive period in the late 1960s, he reportedly kept his wife locked inside their mansion. She claimed he also hid her shoes to dissuade her from walking outside, and kept the house dark because he did not want anyone to see his balding head. She later walked out of the house through the closed and locked rear sliding glass door, shoeless, shattering the glass as she left, and feet all cut up by the time she got to the gate. She never returned. Ronnie Spector filed for divorce in 1972. Years later she said, "I can only say that when I left in the early 1970s, I knew that if I didn't leave at that time, I was going to die there". Sound familiar?
  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site Big time. She had a good time with the Stones......Dee Dee Ramone had great Phil stories........held hostage at gunpoint kinda stuff. The nefarious part of Hollywood, eh?
  • Terry Greene Oh, she was a naughty girl! I heard about another gun pulling incident with Ike. My big sister used to go out with a booking agent who booked mostly soul acts like Ike and Tina, Little Richard and "little" Stevie Wonder. He regailed us with stories about how Ike would burst into the room waving a gun demanding money the second he walked off stage. What a frackin' character. One time I was on an international flight with them. I put Ike to shame in bad behaviour eight miles high (and no, it wasn't The Mile High Club kinda thing AND I didn't punch anybody).

  • Terry Greene Damn, I love dish! More, more!
  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site Mike Johnson and John pulled one over on John's wife at the time, Susie. They showed up saying John was driving Mike to the airport and that Mike needed to borrow suitcases. John's mom was over that night cooking filet mignon for the whole family. Mike and John disappeared into the bedroom for a little while, emerged with two suitcases, and said good bye. Susie asked "What about the steaks?". She was upset. John's mother came out and said 'I'll take the steaks out and we'll just wait until you come back." Some wait! They took off to the airport and left for Cuba and stayed there for months. The suitcases were full of John's stuff.
  • Terry Greene Dang, Ruben, if I didn't know better (?) I'd either say you're making this stuff up or you were there. Hmmm?
  • Terry Greene Sure thing, nv. That's what I always say... july 12, 2012

  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site It was right up there with chuck willis....gonna hang up my rock n roll shoes......we could do a series on these things
  • Terry Greene Yeah, we could from Jimi to Tupac. Tupac was blatantly courting death. He knew it was coming and he would not back down. Remember, his last video was of him dressed in white in heaven with Red Fox? And the song I Ain't Mad Atcha also showed him getting killed and looking down on earth. Poor baby knew it was coming sooner than later and refused to take precautions and seemed to welcome it. Oops, Tupac on Freep? My bad.
  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site LOL..........no one's turned me onto tupac yet. my students were all bumpin' lil boosie and gucci man. yeah we're mired in time here.......you and me kid, shucking and jiving in the balcony.....the peanut gallery, as it is a 60s music page........so i think zakary thaks, bubble puppy, count five, mouse & the traps...........ad infinitum

  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site This song is notable for being one of the first successful records associated with the power pop sound, utilising all of the elements attributed to the genre. A subsequent single released by Badfinger, "Baby Blue" (Billboard #14, 1972), along with several album tracks in a similar vein, succeeded in categorizing the band themselves as "Power Pop".....This is pretty true if you don't remember Alex Chilton.
  • Kurt Page Badfinger, Nolan! Thanks.
  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site With pleasure Kurt. Been digging the Iveys like crazy the last few weeks.
  • James Nolan I never thought of Badfinger as "Power Pop"--they were a little too varied in their sound to easily fit into such a categorization, though if it gets some listeners to check the band out, I have no problems with such labeling. As for Alex Chilton, between the Box Tops and Big Star, he was recording sloppy, albiet fun stuff like this. Any guy who could meld The Archies with part of a James Brown song ("There Was A Time") was really being a free thinker (or whatever) :

    A cover song from Alex Chilton's "Free Again: the 1970 Sessions" LP/CD.
  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site Damn right on AC. The power pop blurb is a quote from the poster but I am inclined to agree. As for varied sound I think they were shooting fish in a barrel. They would have gone for anything that worked and did. For Apple artists I prefer Grapefruit. august 8, 2012
  • James Nolan It's good, but it sounds similar to a lot of British Pop singles that came out around that time. It sounds like the band were just learning how to work within the confines of a recording studio and hadn't quite found their own particular sound yet.
  • The Los Angeles Free Press 60's Music Site They've much better material.......as stated above.......They were kind of aiming in a way for the sound of the Illusion ala Did You See Her Eyes........more specifically Sweet Talkin' Soul or Charlena...
