If you went along with him, where would you be going? Where, do you think, is paradise, to Eddie Money? 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 07/01/2014 at 2:13 pm That clip is bizarre. My Italian is almost non-existent but I think I ca make out that this is a mosh of Hair and Neo-Expressionist European theater. I guess you had to be there. 1 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 07/01/2014 at 10:38 pm A beef and beer in the Bronx? 0 High Five al says: 07/02/2014 at 2:56 pm It’s not all Sex & Drugs… 1. The Who have announced details of their 50th anniversary tour – and confirmed that they are starting to think about retirement. The nine-date tour will be called ‘The Who Hits 50’. Singer Roger Daltrey said: “This is the beginning of the long goodbye.” Townshend added: “Trying to stay young. Not wearing socks. Growing a great big woodcutter’s beard. Might even wear a check shirt onstage and get a tattoo of a Union Jack. Always a fashion victim. But under no illusions. We are what we are, and extremely good at it, but we’re lucky to be alive and still touring.” 2. Eric Clapton has announced he is “thinking” of quitting touring, because he believes that touring has become “unbearable” and “unapproachable”. In an interview with Uncut, the guitarist blamed the hostile atmosphere surrounding travelling. Clapton said of touring: “The road has become unbearable. It’s become unapproachable, because it takes so long to get anywhere. It’s hostile – everywhere: getting in and out of airports, travelling on planes and in cars.” He likened the world as now resembling “a different version of America”. Clapton turns 70 in March 2015. 3. Lou Reed has left US$30 million (£17.5m) in his will. Reed left $15m (£8.8m) to his wife, artist Laurie Anderson, along with two homes in New York worth a total of £5m and his personal property. Reed’s only sibling, his younger sister Margaret, has been left $5m (£2.9m), plus $500,000 (£293,000) to care for their mother Toby. Reed died aged 71 in October 2013 after an unsuccessful liver transplant. Reed earned an additional $20.4m after his death. Since his death, increased requests to use his music led to a dramatic rise in royalties. – NME 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 07/03/2014 at 3:58 pm This made me think of the Librarians of the Hall: http://libwww.freelibrary.org/blog/index.cfm?postid=2024 0 High Five cherguevarra says: 07/09/2014 at 10:31 am Is there any band with less stage presence than Blue Oyster Cult? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0X5YpOkSz4 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 07/09/2014 at 2:52 pm I’ve been away and mostly out of touch for a few days, but our old friend KingEd just posted this book review on Phawker: http://www.phawker.com/2014/07/09/books-tied-to-the-whipping-post/ 0 High Five Leave a ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
