Look more like the RNC to me
January 25th, 20134:04 pm
Nyanh! You didn’t!!!
January 25th, 20134:09 pm
Awesome. That was great.
January 25th, 20134:13 pm
He’s no Roger Daltrey, but I dig it!
Townshend’s windmill guitar playing and smashing the guitars at the end?
Rock is dead they say
Long live rock!
January 25th, 20134:14 pm
Catch up with me over the weekend for more on that from downstairs…..
January 25th, 20134:19 pm
Cool. I will hit you back up. Interesting stuff
Heart (featuring Jason Bonham) covers Led Zeppelin. Stairway to Heaven.
Watch, Enjoy, Weep.

Because it is a free country, a free blog and because they are the greatest rock band in the history of mankind, I will link nothing but Who songs tonight!
If you get burnt out on Daltrey, Townshend, Entwhistle and Moon, don’t click!
January 25th, 20134:27 pm
back at ya with the Neil Young………. good call
January 25th, 20134:29 pm
Jam: I’m sure you have, but if you haven’t ever listened to “Live at Leeds”…..
Check it out. One of the best “live” rocknroll albums imo

Washington has chased off another producer.
Good-By Tina Turner.
I’m glad that you escaped this………………Obamanation.
godless heathen - owner of many things he does not need
LD: Enjoyed that performance of STH. Sir Page seemed to enjoy it too.
A little different cover:
January 25th, 20134:33 pm
TBS, had it on cassette and played it in my Mini all the time when I was stationed in the UK!
You can hear it in the street, see it in the dragging feet,
The word is getting out about control,
Spies they’ve come and gone, the story travels on,
The only quiet place is inside your soul.
January 25th, 20134:34 pm
That was great!
January 25th, 20134:37 pm
Gotta feeling 2013’s gonna be a good year
January 25th, 20134:39 pm
Thanks for the Dolly covering LD. Never heard it. She did a good job
January 25th, 20134:41 pm
Here is an interesting cover of a song Led Zep made famous on their 3rd album. Neil Young also has a nice version on Americana:
January 25th, 20134:42 pm
Whoa! I’m going back to that Dolly…
Still my favorite of NY’s
January 25th, 20134:47 pm
godless, thanks! I’ll have to watch that one in its entirety after I get home.
January 25th, 20134:51 pm
Neil Young, Heart’s stunning cover of Zep and that live version of Magic Bus.
January 25th, 20134:52 pm
“rock and roll” is already dead Jay. We now have the useless noise of hip-hop and an endless string of whining and electronically modulated “beautiful” people (of indeterminate sex) who have no talent BUT, they look good. Joe Walsh ain’t much to look at but he is a very talented man. If he were just starting out and he was trying to make it now in the music he would fail. So would Neil Young for that matter and many, many others who ain’t exactly blessed in the looks department. Talent doesn’t matter anymore in music. Now that I think about it, it is like politics in this country. It isn’t what you know or how good a leader you will be but it is all about how you look and WHAT you are, just like Obama.

Great deep cut from the Who!
Take a little dope and walk out in the air
The stars are all connected to the brain
January 25th, 20135:05 pm
January 25th, 20135:07 pm
Okay, y’old f*rt..what’s that about indeterminate sex?

From one of the five most wonderful albums ever made…
I disagree strongly, Pogo.
I almost posted these guys tonight, and may do so in the future. They refute your pessimism:

Well, I was just about to doze off and that josef went and posted some Little Richard! Thanks!

More than welcome…he’ll wake yore tired ole a33 up…still
January 25th, 20135:21 pm
Here’s to never getting old!!!
January 25th, 20135:22 pm
Any of y’all in this one?
January 25th, 20135:23 pm
TBS: Love No Quarter. I think I first heard that album when my friend and I would cut drama class and go up town – in the teacher’s car.
Look at Jefferson, linking that kickass Entwhistle/Who song.
I always loved that line:
Put on my lead boots and take a long, long drive
January 25th, 20135:24 pm
The bass line kills…
January 25th, 20135:25 pm
…and we all lived in…
January 25th, 20135:26 pm
January 25th, 20135:27 pm
…and we were all in a constant…

Teenage angst before it got so damn maudlin
January 25th, 20135:38 pm
I’d to dedicate to some people that were in the news this week:
Lance “Tour d’ Farce” Armstrong
Manti Te’o, The lying Hawaiian
January 25th, 20135:39 pm
I’m looking for me
You’re looking for you
We’re looking in at each other
And we don’t know what to do
January 25th, 20135:40 pm
looks like your old mamas and daddys are all right
Escaped from Email Purgatory
January 25th, 20135:46 pm
Now that’s a great video. Good way to start the weekend.
I think the gentleman at the end of the video is the same guy who gave me the one-fingered salute on the expressway last week.
January 25th, 20135:50 pm
:lol; That reminded me that I used to really dig this group…but now I have to eat two before bedtime…
stands for decibels
January 25th, 20135:51 pm
I’ll admit that I saw the headline and was eagerly prepared to comment on THAT ‘oo song. But this video is great.
January 25th, 20135:53 pm
Teen angst, maudlin and the wayback machine…
January 25th, 20135:54 pm
Then there was this…
January 25th, 20135:58 pm
Yeah! That was the ticket…
and, yeah, it was drug related…
Teen Angel was ok, bur my teen angst was more toward this one…
January 25th, 20135:59 pm
The Lyln’ Hawaiian!
Kinda reminds me of the Throwin’ Samoan.
January 25th, 20136:06 pm
My favorite Hawaiian…

January 25th, 20136:17 pm
That’s too funny Jay! Happy Weekend!
Mahalo, brother Corbin.
The first song ever played on 96 Rock WKLS in 1974.
The second time that I saw the Who, Townshend said this song now belonged to the fans. And with the first few unmistakable, iconic notes, the crowd erupted in screams and yells of delight.
January 25th, 20136:19 pm
January 25th, 20136:21 pm
TBS, glad you’re hanging around a bit longer tonight, brother!
Just one night, Jam
January 25th, 20136:27 pm
Appreciate the sentiment, but actually getting ready to shut it down and go out to dinner.
January 25th, 20136:30 pm
Hope the regular FNMers as well as the passerby crowd have a great night and an even better weekend
Peace out people…………..
MY favorite Hawaiian…
January 25th, 20136:33 pm
That’s it for me too…it’s…
January 25th, 20136:41 pm
January 25th, 20136:55 pm
January 25th, 20136:58 pm
Well, unlike Beyonce; THEY did not lip-sync…
January 25th, 20137:00 pm
You got me me to turn those speakers way up with that one.
Haven’t done psychedelics in many, many a moon but just now I wondered what it would be like to experience it again with much life experience and maybe even a little wisdom under my belt.
But, nah! I’d be way too scared!
We do not stop playing because we get old. To the contrary; we get old because we stopped playing.
ROCK-ON all the way to your crash site.
January 25th, 20137:10 pm
Man, that BJ was great, huh? What a showman and what a talent…
January 25th, 20137:11 pm
No link due to my slow service tonite….but…….”Who Are You”? Dedicated to Te’O’s girlfriend
January 25th, 20137:15 pm
I just realized that my 7:10 is bound to get some snickers from the peanut gallery!
So true, Vlad!
More killer bass work.
Before anyone really knew what mountains of monster music was to come from these guys…
January 25th, 20137:17 pm
January 25th, 20137:36 pm
But even as the old rockers will tell you…
Joe Hussein Moma
January 25th, 20137:40 pm
I bet Hillary can sing! She’s one hot Moma!
josef: that was funny right there!
January 25th, 20137:43 pm
JHM: She doesn’t do anything for me.
January 25th, 20137:48 pm
Oh my, THAT video / music / singing was great! Thanks Jay! “Hope I die before I get old” – just great!
January 25th, 20137:50 pm
I never got The Who – but they all could play really well, that’s obvious.
January 25th, 20137:52 pm
Of course “My Generation” lives on, especially with the original band – The Who – still out there doing it like they’re made out of rubber. We’ve a ways to go even still, Jay, and it won’t sound like we’re reading a shopping list!
Speaking of reading a shopping list, remember this lovely lady?
January 25th, 20137:57 pm
Great minds! I pulled this one up when Corbin was in the wayback machine, but, well..
And now… here you come!
January 25th, 20138:10 pm
Back at you, josef, with one for you and unmentionable. Enjoy…
January 25th, 20138:12 pm
I don’t “Hope I Die Before I Get Old’, but I hope I die before I get TOO old.
January 25th, 20138:14 pm
Kelly Morris’s *History of Rock and Roll* musical, the first time ever I came to Atlanta, performed in some old warehouse. I sat behind Pearl Cleage. Don’t know what became of that show.
January 25th, 20138:19 pm
Too late to die young now.
January 25th, 20138:21 pm
Did anyone else catch the WHO at the second Atl Pop Festival in Byron GA. They had about the same lineup as Woodstock , one year before.
January 25th, 20138:26 pm
Bing. You know who wants to live to a hundred? Those that are 99.
January 25th, 20138:39 pm
2nd Atl Pop Festival, 1970 i believe. Lineup included the Who, Havens, Grand Funk, Hendrix (who played Star Spangled Spaghetti on July 4th, with fireworks and a light rain falling), Allman Bros, et al. Camped under some huge Pecan trees with my new wife. Didn’t need any drugs, I was crazy in love.
