    Covers, uncovers, remakes, etc.

    Can't stand Guns N Roses reduxes o f "Live and Let Die" and "Knockin' on Heavan's "Door".Totally wrongly approached and poorly execute Axel's voice isn't at all fitting for either tune...and don't get me started about loud sailing guitars for the Dylan number.....completely inapproprate....

    Kind of a bit of a novelty here but I've always enjoyed the Monkees' "Zor and Zam",which was featured in the last episode of the TV series.All about some people who "threw a war and nobody came..."

    1 hit wonders of the 90's

    The Ed Collins number certainly was a favorite of mine....Also kinda liked Len's "Stea! my Sunshine".....unusual for me to go for too much really lightweight pop,but somehow this one managed to half decently engage me....

    favorite song from the 60s

    The explosively Beatlesque "Lies" by Jersey's own Knickerbockers.....Beau Brummels had a couple really good and sadly overlooked tunes.....and let's not forget Napoleon XIV-"They're Coming to Take Me Away(HA HA).....

    Recently viewing Beach Boys docs as infinitum over on YouTube and am becoming increasingly curious concerning the band's works in the Four year wake after the abandonment of the Smile project in its entirety.Bits and pieces began to surface in Wild Honey and 20/20 and I'm quite intrigued with...

    Chuck Berry (Official Thread)

    I like the clip of Chuck doin' "Sweet Little Sixteen" with John Lennon on the Mike Douglas Show in 1972.The rock world's equivalent of a meeting of a pair Greek Gods atop Mount Olympus!

    The Knack(and should we get them?)

    An internet Vlogger recommended investigating the Knack beyond their "My Sharonna" and "Get the Knack" and suggested a record called "Round Trip",which I may get around to on YouTube.Previously,I was told that basically even including "Sharonna",which somehow managed to become Billboard...

    Rolling Stones Postpone North American Tour as Mick Jagger Gets Medical Treatment

    Instead of being disappointed that Mick had to postpone some performances,quite actually fans should count their blessings that they even have opportunity to see him in action as most 75 year olds I know wouldn't dare hopscotch around the world with such blazing ambition.This man has more bolden...

    Favourite lurve songs?

    Love Song-The Cure.Proves once and for all that a truly great love tune need not be necessarily schmaltzy,a quality Paul McCartney has been accused of overplaying his hand at(My Love,although through its schmaltz is STILL certainly one of the all time greats as previously mentioned in this thread)

    Chuck Berry (Official Thread)

    The fact that Richards among others(Led Zeppelin)had to "steal" or alter so many guitar licks in order to keep their R7B futures intact is exactly why I go with the Beatles as my favorite group.There's only so much you can do with usual three chord-bridge blues-rock.Variations on the theme have...
