Friday Jams Fest

    1. Apropos of everything (of late) —

      Never Trust A Blonde Politician

      (And I guess, If you ever happen to be unfortunate enough to come across a blonde politician — well, just run like hell.)

      1. One of the bands I played in back in the day in NJ had a gig opening for Mott the Hoople.  We got to jam with Ian and Mick Ralphs in the dressing room.  They invited us to go onstage with them at THEIR gig the next night where they were opening for Procol Harum.

        Those were the days…

        1. He’s pretty incredible live on Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust DVD.

          And although Bowie’s credited as producer, Ronson pretty much put together Lou Reed’s Transformer album. One of my favorite Lou Reed records–thanks to Ronson’s playing, as well as the songs.

      1. I’m not a fan of The Band or that style of rock in general, but that is a very compelling film, with some great performances. (I never cared for Van Morrison until I saw this on HBO a few years ago.)

        1. After This Is Spinal Tap, of course.

          It should be a good film–Martin Scorsese.  I haven’t seen his Rolling Stones film, but I want to.  Apparently The Last Waltz pissed off everyone else in The Band.  It was edited to be Robby Robertson this, Robby Robertson that.  According to Levon Helm in his autobiography, anyway.

          Got to see Van Morrison live back in the day.  WAY back in the day before anyone heard of him.  My friend Jimmy and I went to see him because “he was the guy who wrote Gloria.” It was a teen concert on the boardwalk in Belmar, NJ. We were 16.

          1. I spoke with a guy who grew up in the Bay Area in the ’60s. Used to hang at the house where Big Brother and Janis jammed, saw all the bands. I asked him who was most memorable — expecting a more-or-less hippie-dippie response like the Grateful Dead or Quicksilver Messenger Service, maybe, or Janis. I was pleasantly surprised when he said it was Van Morrison, who had come over from the U.K. and was the house act for a while at some club in, I think, Berkeley.

          2. I knew about it being Scorsese – I think I first heard of it in the early 90s, when I was going through a Scorsese kick and rented most of his films. I skipped it since it was a music documentary. (I still need to see “Stop Making Sense” and “Gimme Shelter”).
