    1. What's your favorite song by 15?
    Hot Burrito #1, probably. So, so beautiful.

    2. How did you get into 20?
    Well, one thing led to another, basically. I got into Poco when I was pretty much obsessed with Buffalo Springfield. I loved the sound of Richie Furay's voice, and at the same time I was going through a country-rock phase, so I was all over these guys' albums. They didn't disappoint.

    3. Who is your favorite member in 1?
    Roger Waters. Obvious answer is obvious.

    4. What’s your favorite lyric bit by 29?
    By Michael Nesmith & The Second National Band? It's either Wax Minute or In the Afternoon. Probably the first.

    5. Have you ever seen 22 live?
    I haven't seen Roger Waters live, no, are you trying to make me cry?

    6. What's your favorite album from 10?
    For purely sentimental reasons it's A Quick One. Not the best, but it was the first one I heard and the one that made me fall in love with them. Plus, it's so much fun, you can't not love it. Quadrophenia deserves at least a mention though.

    MUS1030 Music Journal* 2: The Stones’ take on Buddy Holly and the “Bo Diddley Beat”

    As was common in the early years for many a rock group, The Rolling Stones’ earliest singles were written by others. This, their third overall and first in the United States, was released in early 1964. Written by Buddy Holly and initially recorded by The Crickets in 1957, The Rolling Stones made this one their own, driving the “Bo Diddley beat” of this song even harder. To give added color to the simple, non-changing chords strummed out by Keith Richards, Mick Jagger adds maracas to his emphatic, syllabic singing, while Brian Jones weaves a wailing harmonica over top and around the monophonic vocal line. Bill Wyman’s bass is apparently the only electric instrument, and lilts up and down within a relatively narrow range underneath the guitar. Charlie Watts is playing only a floor tom, and it is either he or Mick that adds a tambourine for embellishment. …
  • Mick Jagger, lucro maximo

    Hoje é aniversario de Michael Philip Jagger, figura mundialmente conhecida pela alcunha de Mick.

    Os verdadeiros fãs sabem, Mick Jagger alem de ser o frontman dos Rolling Stones, foi tambem estudante de contabilidade e finanças da London School of Economics.

    Ele não chegou a se graduar na LSE. Eu li em algum lugar que o cantor dos Stones teria sido convidado a deixar o curso depois de entrar com sua moto na biblioteca. Eu não acredito nesse papo. Pra mim simplesmente Jagger viu um futuro mais brilhante nos palcos que dentro de um terno e com uma gravata.

    Credito: Chevall

    Pelo visto o pouco tempo no LCE foram suficientes para Jagger aprender as manhas do show business. De la pra ca o Rolling Stones se tornou uma empresa chamada MUSIDOR com caixa postal em Amsterdam.

    A economia da musica pop inclui duas fontes de renda: venda de discos e o lucro dos shows.
    A primeira e muito instavel. …
  • Wah Wah and Wine

    OK - so I made rash promise not to drink any alcohol for a whole month. This was on Sunday night. It is now Wednesday and I have decided that life is too short. And what about all those recent scientific studies showing that a glass of wine a day is actually beneficial to your constitution?

    Besides, it shure do get the creative juices flowing. I have now put down the framework to a song I have been writing for years. Tonight, I overcame all timing problems and nailed the shit out of the rhythm guitar track. I then applied liberal amounts of gooey wah wah and pan sync effects. Next, I overdubbed that guitar track and allowed a bit of Satanic overdrive distortion to have influence.

    The drum part next - all using a drum synth, mind. Must be careful and keep this minimal. The illict love-child of Meg White and Charlie Watts. And all the while I was giving it some of Charlie's embarassed grin as I tapped that shuffling snare and driving kick drum in.

    2005, Franz Ferdinand 's frontman, Alex Kapranos , was detained by Russian police after being suspected of being a spy. Kapranos was attempting to board a plane in Moscow when the altercation took place. Travelling under his actual surname, Huntley, Alex was accused of being an MI6 agent who was previously suspected of stealing information on Russian weaponry. Unlucky for Alex that the surname Huntley was also used by actual former MI6 agent Richard Tomlinson who did steal secrets in the early 90s. The singer was freed after he pointed out that the Huntley they were so concerned about was 42, 13 years older than him.
