All-Star Jam Posted by Mr. Moderator Oct 102013 Don’t pay any attention to that little squirt Fred Savage! The All-Star Jam is the place to do your own thing. Show Savage how it’s done. 21 Responses to “All-Star Jam” cherguevarra says: 10/10/2013 at 10:54 am This is amusing: http://rockandrolltedium.tumblr.com/?og=1 “Dull” stories of meeting/seeing pop stars. 0 High Five cherguevarra says: 10/10/2013 at 11:00 am This is my favorite so far: “Nigel Godrich explained air travel to me.” My friend and I managed to get into a “secret” Beck gig in LA in 2007, and Nigel Godrich walked out onstage and played keyboards throughout the set. I spotted him outside afterwards, and I tapped him on the shoulder. I told him it was a great show, and that I’d been shocked to see him there. “I thought it was you,” I said, “but at the same time I was like, wait, it can’t be him, he’s in England.” “I took a plane,” Nigel replied. “Oh,” I said. I demanded he and Radiohead get on the stick and produce another webcast, then we shook hands and parted. My parents picked me up, and I got a filet-o-fish sandwich at McDonald’s. 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 10/10/2013 at 11:47 am I liked the Feargal Sharkey one. There were a couple of “lift” (elevator) stories. I was reminded of the time our band rode an elevator with the Ramones. They seemed really dumb, like dumb enough that they would need help wiping their own asses. 1 High Five cherguevarra says: 10/10/2013 at 1:38 pm Here’s another link: Ikea product or death metal band quiz: http://ikeaordeath.com/ 0 High Five misterioso says: 10/10/2013 at 3:13 pm “Seemed”? 0 High Five funoka says: 10/10/2013 at 3:29 pm Very cool — my favorite so far re: Steven Tyler During Aerosmith’s Pink tour, my friends and I walked past him and Joe Perry sitting outside of their hotel, in Birmingham, Michigan. They autographed our t-shirts and Steven gave me his unopened bottle of Evian water (I don’t know why). I kept it in my fridge for a year until one day my dad drank it. I was mad. 1 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 10/10/2013 at 11:21 pm Where do you find this stuff? 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 10/10/2013 at 11:24 pm Awesome. I could add: “I watched Dave Matthews buy socks with his kids.” “I thought the drummer of Pavement was a homeless guy and ignored him while he offered up a needle and thread to stitch up the holes in my husband’s pants.” It’s unfortunate that I recall these very unexciting events quite clearly. 0 High Five cherguevarra says: 10/11/2013 at 8:04 am Facebook! 0 High Five MrHuman says: 10/11/2013 at 10:32 pm So has anyone else heard Alex Chilton’s newly-released album? It’s a live show that he did by candlelight after the electricity went out in the venue. 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 10/12/2013 at 7:37 am I have not heard this. How is it? I guess it’s acoustic. Is he solo? 0 High Five cherguevarra says: 10/12/2013 at 9:44 am Guitar nerds, here’s Dave Davie’s stage setup from 1964: http://www.guitargeek.com/the-kinks-dave-davies-1964-guitar-rig-and-gear-setup-diagram/ 2 High Five BigSteve says: 10/12/2013 at 10:49 am Here is a really long interview with Joni Mitchell done this summer. My NPR station started getting that Q program, and I heard some of it there. I didn’t know there was a video version. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEJuiZN3jI8 She is one contrary person. 0 High Five MrHuman says: 10/12/2013 at 4:09 pm I really like it. As you’d expect, the sound quality’s really bad, but that’s kind of endearing. He does (I think) all covers, including “I Walk the Line”, “If I Had a Hammer”, and “Wouldn’t it Be Nice”. It’s just him and a drummer. 0 High Five cherguevarra says: 10/13/2013 at 10:34 pm Should put her in a room with Ginger Baker: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/q-a-ginger-baker-on-why-the-rolling-stones-are-not-good-musicians-20131011 0 High Five hrrundivbakshi says: 10/14/2013 at 11:22 am Mod, I know you must have seen this, but just in case: http://thechive.com/2013/10/08/civil-war-soldiers-or-hipsters-24-photos/ 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 10/15/2013 at 9:17 am I’ve seen a variation on that. I love it! Just yesterday I was telling sammy about a failed photo shoot our band did in hopes of capturing a sepia-tone, fish-eye lens group shot around which to build a Band s/t-cum-Safe as Milk album cover for Traps, Buckshot & Pelt. No matter how many fine photos our friend took in that style, it was still us in the frame. We switched gears and went with a Music From Big Pink-inspired cover instead. 0 High Five al says: 10/16/2013 at 10:40 am Did anyone else know this little fact I just learned – the song “Oh How Happy (You Have Made Me)” by Shades Of Blue (a staple on WFIL & WIBG back in my youth) was written by Edwin Starr? 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 10/16/2013 at 11:38 am I did not know that! Plus, I guess I didn’t know who the artist is behind that song. I thought it was the Edward Hawkins Singers, or a band with a name along those lines. I love that song. 0 High Five hrrundivbakshi says: 10/17/2013 at 8:23 pm Hey, Oats — djoo see dis? http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2013-09-03/entertainment/sns-rt-us-cheaptrick-lawsuit-20130903_1_band-rock-concert-july-lawsuit 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 10/18/2013 at 7:48 am This is pretty funny: http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/b0dd8a3cef/the-clash-the-last-gang-in-town 0 High Five Leave a ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
