I'm partial to the song "Ballad of Curtis Lowe"

I still have the LP that has this track I bought in the '70's.
(with all the crackly stactic)

I have to admit to GILD,,, your 1st post got me alittle 'weapy' :/

I also never had the chance to see them, I was actually waiting for an appearance nearby, then the plane went down.

I could really go for You Give Love a Bad Name by Atreyu

If Bon Jovi could have written the original that bad ass he would have.

It was some stupid with a flare gun.

That's the fire that is immortalized in Deep Purple's song Smoke On The Water.


We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground

Smoke on the water, and fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

They burned down the gambling house
It died with an awful sound
A funky Claude was running in and out
Pulling kids outa the ground
When it all was over
We had to find another place
But Swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race

Smoke on the water, and fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

We ended up at the Grand Hotel
It was empty cold and bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Making our music there
With a few red lights, a few old beds
We made a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this
I know, I know we'll never forget

Smoke on the water, and fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

Segue...(Thread jack, what ever) I heard this morning that Rolling Stone is publishing the top 500 songs of all time. This is the best article I could find so far. I don't see Skynyrd or Zeppelin in the top 20; I'd like to see the rest of the list.
mmm, here's the UK Version

Interesting. Maybe the UK is stuck in the '70s.

I had quite a bit of windshield time over the past weekend, channel surfing through FM radio. Heard a bunch of "Top xxx" broadcasts.

Didn't hear much recent music.

Dinosours ROCK!

Elvis would have been 70 today.

There'll be some Crying In The Chapel.

I wonder if he found out if she was an angel or The Devil In Disguise.

Elvis has left the building.

Yea, not only the good die young. They're dieing older now too.

I think the Airplane was better than the Starship.



GILD, here's one for you and really "classic": Our evening news puts up anniversary trivia before the commercial breaks. Last night it said, "The first Radio Broadcast was January 13, 1910".

According to this site it was On Jan. 12-13, 1910 that Lee De Forest arranged the world's first radio broadcast to the public, directly from Metropolitan Opera to several listeners in New York.

i missed that one

normally the prep-sites we use at the station would mention something like that
i know they mention the day radio was patented, and the day some court supposedly overturned that patent and awarded it to Tesla

You are correct, although I try not to think of them as related entities. Just depresses me.

So as long as we're threadjacked anyway, fill in the blanks:

Airplane is to Starship as ________ is to __________.

Let's keep the answers to bands or musicians.

Here's a couple lame ones:

Airplane is to Starship as "Beatle's Lucy in the Sky" is to "Captain Kirk's Lucy in the Sky"

Airplane is to Starship as Elvis is to the tacky Elvis Impersonators.

A better one:

As much as I'm not a fan of David Lee Roth: Airplane is to Starship as original Van Halen is to Sammy Van Halen.


I'm sure there's some good ones, expecially bad covers of good songs.
