Football Sunday ain’t all it’s cracked up to be when there’s an hour-long concert from the Prakish John-era of Lou Reed to watch. Let this All-Star Jam stir up whatever rock insights are on your mind, whether they are related to this performance or not.

  1. Bummer, Steve Mackay, the sax player who enters side 2 of the amazing Stooges Funhouse album and blows his way through the already raging storm, has died.


    I’m not the greatest fan of the sax in rock, but his contributions to that album were PERFECT! His entry on side 2 takes that album from 11 to 13!

    What is up with the keyboard player in this Style Council video? Was there a raccoon crawling up his pant leg? Why is he making those faces? I’m confused and maybe a little bit scared:


  3. It took a lot to please Weller during this time in the band’s career. Careers were on the line. Hair styles were being assessed.

  4. Not judiciously enough, I’m afraid. https://youtu.be/k5HfOipwvts?t=22s

    That sweater ain’t helping either. Or whatever that is.

  6. You know, in re-watching this and the other Style Council video that was posted it became clear to me that some people just weren’t made to hold a microphone. Weller looks so awkward as a guitar-less singer.

    His look is bordering on Chav, I’m afraid:

  8. I’ve always thought that one of the coolest things about the early Flying Burrito Brothers records was the way that they embraced Southern Soul as much as country. The other day I noticed that this song has an uncanny resemblance, both instrumentally and vocally, to another blue eyed soul proponent. Any guesses who I’m thinking of?


  9. I know it’s not your artist but it reminds me vocally, melodically, and instrumentally of Emmitt Rhodes.
