Had a bit of a discussion the other day about whether Blockbuster by the Sweet is the same riff as Jean Genie by David Bowie

I reckon that riff goes back further than either of them.

Yes, it is supposedly based on 'I'm A Man', although that is in G rather than E.

Second only to Quicksilver's 25 minute live version on their Happy Trails album.

Started thinking of this one while listening to Kris Kristofferson

Over the last week or so I have been trying to think of a song by the Smiths that reminded me of an Elvis song. I worked out which song it was yesterday. Unfortunately this now ties in with todays announcement of the death of the Smiths bass player, Andy Rourke.

 

 

Acoustic guitar sounds similar to His Latest Flame.

Heard this for the first time yesterday. Sounds strangely familiar. Apparently Robert Plant was a fan.

Watched the Manics at Glastonbury the other day and discovered another great song by them.

Dry and sunny up here for the first time in weeks it seems. Definitely not hot. Lots of this recently...

 

 

Reminds me of Oasis this song.

Used to hear a song called The Juice of the Barley on a Val Doonican record when I was a kid. Didn't understand the chorus. Turns out it is partly in Irish.

Taped this song from the radio when it was broadcast in the 80's. Still got it on cassette but don't know whether it would still be playable. Scottish prog metal band Chasar from a session recorded for the Friday Rock Show.

When I saw the name Charlatans I was expecting something more like this

The Charlatans' label refused to let them release Codine as they thought it encouraged drug abuse - fools!

 

Anyway, another one gone - R.I.P. Robbie Robertson...

Found this by accident, I've never heard this song done like this, it seems as if this is the way it should be done.
