First topic message reminder :

I was watching an interview with Johnny Marr last night and he told a story I hadn't heard before. Apparently before Oasis were anything, Marr and Noel G were acquaintances. Gallagher had a pretty awful guitar, all he could afford, so Marr lent him his Gibson sunburst guitar which he had bought from Pete Townsend! The guitar can be seen in the Live Forever video and was used to record some of the bigger track on DM. The guitar unfortunately copped it when a stage invading fan wore it on his head after Noel had been bottled. Marr being the generous sought, replaced the guitar with a black version from his collection (seen in later live performances and some of the live stuff on the SMS video).

Anymore rock'n'roll anecdotes?

Take a clipboard or notebook with you and jot down a few scribblings while they're making it.  To add to the quality of your panini you could wear a beret so they think you're quite a player in the food business.

Or a paratrooper?

Or a f***ing big machete.

I had some curry sauce and chips from a roughish chinese/fish and chip shop a few weeks back. My arris was in pieces for about 3 days after that. Shame as i really fancy that now....

I like the usage of a toddler though I'd probably force it onto its side and dig my knee into its neck so I could keep an eye on the food preparation, especially if its mum or aunt was working behind the counter.

Galted, I don't wish to question your vast knowledge and intelligence although I am going to question it so that sentence is completely irrelevant but I have always been led to believe by numerous websites, radio DJ's etc that Chris Farlowe's cover of The Stones 'Out Of Time' was number 1 when England won the World Cup.

Wife came home last night having NOT gone shopping straight after work which was the whole reason I collected our daughter from Nursery only for her to come in minus bags and to then say that she WAS going to stop off for donner meat and chips but wanted to get home and see us so didn't.

I'd held off making tea so ended up having a cr*ppy cheese sarnie which was made even worse by thoughts of donner meat running around my head. In fact, I'm salivating now at the thought of it.

Thanks, Womble. This is really annoying as I stole the "fact" from another poster who shall remain anonymous (Rowley) and my fraud has now been exposed.

He is absolutely right Galted. Would love to say my error was intentional to make you look foolish but having checked my facts it appears Womble is 100% correct and I have been previously misinformed.

The funny thing is my old man told me it was Farlowe and I checked it because he does have a tendency to make things up, would appear I put the wrong date in one of those what was number one on your birthday websites.

Good song. Remember the Oasis cover? Always thought they were perfect to cover Merry Christmas by Slade.

Noel Gallagher actually did cover Merry Christmas himself. More slowed down and less terrible than the original version, however.

As for rock and roll anecdotes.....I once stood next to Tony Hadley on Kings Cross Station. He is built like a brick shizzle house.

I think Windows has a Tony Hadley story that was slightly more impressive.

"I don't care how much they're offering, I'm not doing that sh!t, my reputation is everything." screamed an apoplectic (feel free to have that as a new word for the day) Biggins shortly before answering another call to be overheard saying "Channel 5?

Talk about damning with faint praise.

I can't abide Slade. I just don't understand how they made it to the upper echelons of music. And how a self-confessed Ride and Stone Roses fan could prefer them to Oasis...

Yes I am. Hanging out with all you young folks on here makes me feel like some sort of fraudulent mid-life crisis type of guy, desperately trying to cling on to his long lost youth. Which is true.

I was listening to a few tracks at the weekend. There are some good songs in the later stuff but it is quite scary that in 5 albums post what's the story I can only list the following:

My Big Mouth
Fade In-Out
Don't Go Away
It's Gettin' Better (Man!!)
Lyla
Stop Crying your heart out

Their sound was good but it was never re-invented in those last 5 albums or so, Sean. They lacked the invention of people like The Beatles and Radiohead (and even Arctic Monkeys now) to really endure.

They are like the Sex Pistols, but with loads of albums. Imagine if the Sex Pistols made loads of albums? It'd be horrible.

Last night I dreamed that you were 51, seems my dreams are about as accurate as Rowley's trivia.

1 mistake Galted, can we not focus on the other zingers, all of which are quite possibly correct.

Of course we can, I did get at least one unquestioned zinger from you.

I feel I need to redeem myself Galted, let me know an area of popular music that interests you and I will try to come up with a suitably impressive knowledge bomb, obviously if I don't know one I will just ignore your post and pretend I did not see it.

Cheers, Rowley. Not so much an area of popular music as a direct question...

Why is it that when one of the two hotties in Bananarama left they didn't replace her with another hottie? Did they feel a bit sorry for the 3rd member who probably didn't get as many stares and whistles?

I'll still respect your vast musical knowledge if you don't know the answer. It's probably a question that Tino could answer better given his history of sneaking about celebrities or michaels who's probably defiled one of them.

Termites will eat wood two times faster when listening to heavy metal.

I'm a bit wary of associating myself with your post as I may end up being the 667Killer victim after you.

As an aside, was Siobhan Fahey the 'fitty' who left Bananarama. She was a bit rough and scary in Shakespeares Sister but I probably would for a Mistress / Slave sort of scenario.....
