No arguing that, afterall, this is the band who's most known song is "Take The Skinheads Bowling"

I like Cracker, always have and still do....it was just disappointing to see them mail a performance in like that and it hurt my overall opinion of them.

I wish they would come up with a definitive George Harrison career collection...ATMP is a classic no doubt, but I can get along without half of it's material and much of the Dark Horse catalog has sadly gone out of print (even though many were hit and miss affairs, when a single stuck..it stuck).

and Buffalo Springfield...tragically overlooked these days...if anyone reading this doesn't know them, you should...get their three cd's ASAP...you won't be disappointed, that's a guarentee.
Agree all the way round, though a little Leonard Cohen goes a long way.

Harrison could definitely write a hook. Sad to say, his legal team's work on the 'He's So Fine/My Sweet Lord' lawsuit is taught in law schools as a cautionary tale ... moral of the story is to leave intellectual property law, or any specialized law, to the specialists. He got shafted.




Close credits from the movie 'The Pianist,' Chopin's Polonaise. Guy is crazy fluid.

Just glanced through a really excellent Beatles bio, McCartney's 'Many Years From Now,' I read it in 2002. George was just 'the kid' to he and John, got the feeling they never took him all that seriously. Understandable I guess ... after all, Salieri wrote some nice compositions, though Mozart had no cause to take notice.

McCartney's book really gives insight into who he is ... modern-day Mozart or not, his ego/one upsman-ship is surprisingly out of control. Get this: He actually went to Yoko sometime in the 90s, and asked if he could change the songwriter credits on his songs to 'McCartney/Lennon.' I'm not sure which is more nuts, that he wanted to change the credit, or that he admitted to asking her (needless to say she said no). He spends much of the book going song by song - detailing his numerous contributions to John's songs, and disavowing any help on his.

He might be telling the truth on that account (although it would be sort of a douche move to go public with it.)

BTW, have you seen this film?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1266029/

Sort of hard to watch, but enlightening nonetheless.

Now there's an oldie....when was that post from? 2004?, 2005 maybe?

In any event, IMHO Harrison's "He's So Fine/My Sweet Lord" lawsuit showed the public two things about him:

1) The pious holy man had a definite mean streak when riled

2) He could write some of his very best material when in such a state of mind (in this case, that would be the excellent "This Song" from his "33 1/3" album, which, along with "Crackerbox Palace" are about the only songs to recommend off from it).

Here, check it out http://youtu.be/bsUkACDSIZY Embedding disabled....Boooo.

Outside of the Beatlesque humor of the clip, the whole thing is quite out of character for him and it's very interesting as a result.

Straight to my Netflix Queue, thanks ... it's just a couple years old, how'd I miss it?

I'm sure you're right, Paul is probably accurate about their various inputs into one anothers' songs. And yes he is a douche to say it in public - not to mention insane to even think of altering the Lennon-McCartney songwriter credit - but it's more than that. When you read his retellings of each set of circumstances in which he helped John out, it's always something along the lines, "John was feeling very insecure about the bridge on (song), so I gave him a chord or two, nudged him until he went the right direction." So smarmy and patronizing the way he approached it, it didn't seem he really liked John much.

As I read it I kept flashing back to that galactically inappropriate quote he gave a reporter the night John died

Was that an old post? Not sure how I stumbled upon it.

Out of character for George maybe, but that's a damn good video for its time. Judges' gavel banging his head in rhythm, court reporter typing on a Fender Rhodes. If by 'Beatle-esque' you mean fast-motion Benny Hill-type slapstick stuff, yeah I see that influence. At least there's a method to that kind of stuff though, at least they didn't go 'Every Little Thing' stupid.

The word 'trivia' - from the Latin 'trivis,' meaning knowledge - my knowledge of that video is that it was shot in the Los Angeles Superior Courthouse at 111 N. Hill Street ... that's either Department 3 or 4 with the squared wall tiles ... their dull oak finish fairly crying out for Liquid Gold as they always have.

Whadd'ya mean by "mean streak"?

It's a great song & video...but it is a mean spirited slap at the whole trial affair (I understand the bitterness, he lost afterall). Check out the vid again...it may be supposing a little too much, but I find it interesting that he rarely smiles (which is unlike him in these things) and the look in his eyes conveys the whole thing perfectly....the guy is pissed. It didn't happen very often with him, but every once in a great while, he would break character and lash out.....as he did here.

For someone who's material spent much time in his post-Beatles solo career being preachy, sanctimonious and ultimately dull, this is almost a total 180 in terms of attitude and subject matter. It's one of the reasons why, I believe anyways, it remains a highlight of his solo career.

I don't know anything about the vid setting itself....you know that courtroom? Did you practice there at one time or were you arraigned on some charges there or something?

From the "totally out of place" folder, comes this image blower:



I dunno what's more EVIL: the rainbow in the background, the flowers around the drumkit or Ozzy's purple/yellow outfit with the Ziggy Stardust boots
