We shall award LMS to 2000 Man since time has long expired. As a coda, I will add the following non-winning entry that I just heard on my car stereo: Tom Petty's "The Same Old You" from Long After Dark Yeah I remember you back in '72 With your David Bowie hair and your platform shoes

misteriosomisterioso on Bullshit On: Livestock Claims Regarding ZZ Top’s Worldwide Texas Tour
Hey gr8gtrfan, I searched online for the article you provide but the only place it exists is on a facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/ralphfishersphotoanimals/photos/a.716334541758721.1073741849.661809653877877/716354208423421/ There's even a photo album. A photo album that has pictures of ZZ Top as well as pictures of apparently genuine livestock and other animals. Just not pictures of ZZ Top and genuine livestock in the same picture, much less on stage together. As for the intriguing video posted in 2013 by The Evidence at Last, and which I'd missed: again, close but no corn-cob pipe. Footage of ZZ Top performing in 1976, check! Shots of livestock, vultures, and a snake, check! All in the same shot at the same time? Um, no. I remain agnostic.

I was at the show in Chicago for this tour. They played with The Atlanta Rhythm Section. Complete with livestock. Those that did not attend have no idea what they're talking about. To all you non-believers. You missed a great show. Here is a write up of what they dealt with for the transportation of the animals included in the show. Official info for the animals upkeep. $140,000 SPENT FOR ANIMALS ON ZZ TOP TOUR One of the only 500 pure-bred longhorn steers in America, a 2,000 pound black buffalo, two trained black "buzzards", and two huge rattlesnakes will be part of the stage presentation for "ZZ Top's Worldwide Texas Tour--Taking Texas to the People." Over $140,000 is being spent to insure that the animals are as healthy and comfortable as the humans. They will travel under the direct supervision of animal expert Ralph Fisher, who holds Bachelor of Science and Master of Education degrees in agricultural education. The six animals will travel in an extra-large, specially ventilated and lit goose-neck stock trailer with separate stalls for each. Roomy pens with exercise facilities will be constructed for the animals on the site of each concert. A local veterinarian will be back-stage during each show. The animals will be innoculated against anthrax, brucelosis and shipping fever, and the veterinary bus hauling their trailer will carry a refrigerator stocked with medicines in case of illness. Get over it negative folks. The show happened and you missed it. Sorry about your luck.

Well, I guess it's an appropriate time to say "Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!"

I think that surely qualifies. LMS!

Are the Mamas and the Papas some hyphenate of rock? That Creeque Alley song name checks half the folkies going rock or pop or whatever. Jim/Roger McGuinn as the guy of many hyphenates would be name checked as well as John Sebastian etc.

During last night's three-hour show, Jesu/Sun Kil Moon performed the song Fragile. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaKdI7v8XxU "I think of John Paul Jones and John Entwistle and the great bass players of that time. But the guy who cut through like no other guy was the guy who played his Rick with a pick, Chris Squire." Also mentioned: Jon Anderson, Steve Shelley, and (indirectly) former Yes replacement singer Benoit David. "And I saw Yes back in Ohio, then at the Warfield in San Francisco. And Jon Anderson had so much energy, he was jumping around and hitting every note. But when we came home my girlfriend learned it was some other guy they found on YouTube, from Ontario. We were pretty far back, that shows you what I know."

Jimmy Page makes an appearance in Paul McCartney's Rock Show. He also makes an appearance in some live versions of The Stones' Starfucker, but not everyone has heard those so I'll stick with Paul's song.

Ok, Weezer mentions most of the Kiss guys by name in "In My Garage." I can't take credit for this deep Weezer knowledge: this answer was provided by Friend of the Hall Hammertime.

No way! His album "Thud" is a pretty solid listen and is sonically really good. I read he was in line to join Genesis, which could've been interesting. Too bad.

I don't know that one, but I knew Kevin in high school and very briefly played in a band with him. Super talented guy and nice guy.

How about Dylan as mentioner? Will eliminate his reference to Alicia Keys as non-rock but Roll On John from his recent album Tempest is about Lennon.

I can't believe I'm the one who is coming up with this one: The Replacements mention Alex Chilton in the song of the same name. See, you all rubbed off on me.

First one that comes to mind is Kevin Gilbert's song, "Joytown" with the lyric, "Lennon never has to sing, a Paul McCartney song."

(Not directly for this thread, but Tonyola mentioning Loudon Wainwright III mentioning Peter Townsend, and Mondo mentioning Bowie/Mott mentioning T. Rex, brought to mind The Who's "You Better You Bet" where Pete mentions drinking "to the sound of old T. Rex and Who's Next". That could be another LMS....)
