He spit in the face of a fan while on the Animals tour (called "In the Flesh" I believe). It happened in Montreal.

I don't know all the details, but there was a school shooting somewhere and, when questioned, the kid who did the shooting merely replied, "I don't like Mondays."

Kidhuman

LS and Chux correct.

Chux, I believe it was a little girl who shot the kids in school and replied I dont like Mondays when asked. And It was in California, San Diego I believe.

Jim Jam
As Roger tells the story, the young man was climbing up the netting that the band was using to symbolize a human cattle pen. This fan, while climbing was screaming out his devotion to the band (as most of the audience likely were). In the years since Dark Side Roger had grown increasingly frustrated with the audience and lack of respect that comes with going from a club band to a
stadium band ("a walk on part in the war for a lead-role in a cage"). All that rage just boiled over and he spat in the guy's face. Roger said he felt shocked and appalled by his behavior afterwards. Hence the idea was born to build a wall on stage to symbolize the wall that he felt now separated the him (and the band) from the audience. The album then grew from that idea.

What does Don Henley say when asked "What does Hotel California mean?"

In a 1995 interview, Don Henley said the song "sort of captured the zeitgeist of the time, which was a time of great excess in this country and in the music business in particular." In another interview that same year, he referred to it as being about a "loss of innocence."

Read on a webpage that it is also a metaphor for the west coast music industry and its effect on the talented but unworldy musicians who find themselves ensnared in its glittering web.

What was the inspiration for the unique melody in the opening to the Rush instrumental "YYZ".

I figure I'll answer my own question so it doesn't go unanswered.

The opening melody for the instrumental is actually the morris code for the letters Y-Y-Z. YYZ is the 3 letter identifier for the Toronto Airport which is the home town for the band. More specifically the local navigation beacon also has the identifier YYZ. Pilots routinely monitor the navigation beacon frequency to listen to the co-transmitted morris code identifier to make sure they are navigating off the correct frequency.

The drummer, Neil Peart, was taking flying lessons and apparently decided that the YYZ morris code had a good rhythm to it and worked it into an instrumental musical piece. Hence the name of the song as well as the opening rhythm.

That is correct. "It's Raining Men" was Homer's favorite song/album.

Hmm I stand corrected. I thought the exchange went something like:
Moe: "There is a new song in the #1 slot on the jukebox"
Hommer: "Its raining men?"
Moe: "Not no more it ain't."

Or atleast it was something along those lines. I haven't sceen that episode in some time so I'll bow to those that have more Simpsons knowledge then me.

Other great lines include the classic "Something not right here. . . . I've got it! This gay bar doesn't have any peanuts!"

And don't forget Guy Incognito, possibly the funniest one-off character in the show's history.

Moe: "Beat it Homer!!"
Guy Incognito: "Who is this Homer? My name is. . . Guy Incognito."
(Guy Incognito is tossed onto the street.)

Here's a multi-parter:

Name the blues musicians who did the originals for each of the following Led Zeppelin songs:

"You Shook Me"
"Nobody's Fault But Mine"
"When the Levee Breaks"
"Gallows Pole"

The only one I knew, or rather thought I knew off the top of my head was Willie Dixon for "You Shook Me." Upon further research, it appears he wrote the song for Muddy Waters, so I'm not sure who recorded it first.

The only other of these two that Zeppelin give writing credits to is Memphis Minnie for "When the Levee Breaks."

I had to look up the other two. "Gallows Pole" was Leadbelly, and "Nobody's Fault But Mine" was Blind Willie Johnson.

I think it was on the House of Blues radio show a few years ago where I heard some songs that were inspirations for or original versions of Zeppelin songs. Keeping with the Zeppelin theme, what two songs were incorporated into the Led Zeppelin tune "How Many More Times"?


what was the name of AC/DC's first singer and what was the name of Angus Young's first band?I knew this wasn't Bon Scott but I couldn't remember off hand. I was thinking Mark Evans, but I knew that was their early bassist. I had to look it up to get the correct answer, Dave Evans. While looking that up, I also noticed that Malcolm and Angus Young had been in a band called the Velvet Underground (not the one with Lou Reed).

arctangent
08-02-2005, 05:25 AM
well done posty333, dave evans is indeed the correct answer.

as for 'gallows pole', leadbelly was the first known recording of the song but it is based on a traditional folk tune.

'how many more times' contains lyrics from albert king's song 'the hunter' and they ripped most of the song from the howling wolf song 'how many more years'.

new question: which band did ben shepherd 'sort of' join before joining soundgarden and who joined soundgarden for one tour before ben replaced them.

Led Zeppelin: Battle of Evermore, Ramble On for sure. Not postitive about the 3rd without looking it up.

Superman: Jim Croce's "Don't Mess Around With Jim" and Three Doors Down's "Kryptonite" (I knew the song lyrics, had to look up the artists)

Misty Mountain Hop doesn't make direct reference, but the title is a reference.

Fact is, there are a lot of songs with Superman in the title.

There's also "Kryptonite" by Three Doors Down and "Jimmy Olsen's Blues" by the Spin Doctors (off an album called Pocket Full of Kryptonite, natch).

I haven't listened to the Spin Doctors in a while. They sort of rocked... once.

Nine Inch Nails had a song called "Starf*ckers Inc.", but that's not the name of a real company as far as I know.

Does it count if the brand name is unintentional? Any song with "Wonder" in the title could count in that case.

I'm familiar with Commander Cody's version. That would be more appropriate for a Star Wars sit.

Bree Sharp: David Duchovny
The Eagles: James Dean
Elton John: I Feel Like a Bullet in the Gun of Robben Ford
Mojo Nixon: Debbie Gibson Is Pregnant with My Two-Headed Love Child

Dweezil Zappa
Jakob Dylan

"Buddy Holly"- Weezer
"Ralph Wiggum"- Bloodhound Gang

Actually, it wasn't as easy as you thought, Chux. You had to think of the three that I was thinking of as correct, and they were:

"Bette Davis Eyes"
"Clint Eastwood" (congrats, Cappy)
"Joltin' Joe DiMaggio" (although since this was written for him and about while he lived, I was prepared to have someone dispute it with me)

Take that! :p
