It’s not often we get a message through The Back Office from someone who may not even be registered as a Rock Town Hall participant suggesting a thread idea, but recently we received such a suggestion from such a lurker! I won’t give this person’s name, but I encourage him to register and claim credit for this cool story. Dig:
In 1977, Eddie & The Hot Rods released the excellent (and until yesterday unknown to me) single “Do Anything You Wanna Do,” with lyrics inspired by the teachings of famed occultist (and Jimmy Page idol) Aleister Crowley. The single sleeve featured the image of Crowley dressed up in Mickey Mouse ears. Legend has it that Jimmy Page was not amused by this image and put a curse on Eddie & The Hot Rods. Lots of bad mojo followed for the band. Read the full story here:
Are there other instances of Rock ‘n Roll Curses to examine? Did the prematurely deceased members of The Yardbirds cross Page? Who cursed Page into being part of The Firm?
