Meaningless trivia....
« on: Mar 22, 07, 05:12 PM »
I'd imagine at least some (mature) members here will be aware that in 1973 both David Bowie (Gene Genie) and Sweet (Blockbuster) ripped off the same Yardbirds' riff.
The previous year Bowie released "Suffragette City" which contained the line "Wham bam, thank you mam" and Sweet released Wig-Wam Bam, in which they sing "Wham bam mam".

This tedious trivia was bought to you as a public service.

Am I to take it that this public service is not universally appreciated? ;)

When ELO's first album was accepted by United Artists for US release, an executive was asked to contact Harvest (the band's UK record company), to clarify the title of the disc. He in turn gave the job to a secretary, who duly phoned Harvest, forgetting the time difference. As it was now late at night UK time, nobody answered the phone.

A few months later the album was released in the US as "No Answer".

Ha! Ha! And you all thought I'd forgotten about this thread.... ;D

Jim Morrison (of The Doors) was the first rock star to be arrested on stage.

This is a fine art, Langston. We must nourish it.

Just as you thought it was safe to pop in....

Sitting down to a meal of Chicked and Egg Fried Rice one day, Paul Simon was moved to pen the song "Mother and Child Reunion".

'Bloom' is the 'common' name that hardly anybody uses for the flower that most know by its botanical name - Chrysanthemum.

If you need a microphone and don't have one, you can use earphones as a microphone. Just plug them into the microphone socket and speak into the earpieces.

You can, also, use a micrphone as a (fairly quiet) speaker.

Though in the tedious spirit of this thread, I could point out that only objects can 'go' anywhere, and a flame is a process not an object. But I won't.
