This LMS invites you to submit rock songs by rock bands /musicians that directly reference other rock band members / rock musicians by name. This being the ROCK town hall, I am specifically including the aforementioned requirements. More specifically:
- It’s gotta be rock on both sides: a rock artist mentioning a rock artist. I think Abba mentioning Joan Baez would be straying too far afield, if it happened!
- It must be a mention of person; mentioning a band not does not count.
- It can be just a first name or last name if it’s clear who it’s talking about. “The walrus was Paul” would count, except that:
- It cannot be a band mentioning a member of that same band, unless it’s about an ex-member.
- Also, Bob Dylan is out as a mentionee. There was already a whole thread dedicated to Dylan mentions!
Here’s my starter submission to kick things off:
The Smithereens’ “Behind The Wall Of Sleep”:
“and she stood just like Bill Wyman / now I am her biggest fan”
One mention at a time, please!
