The crank call thing - there's definitely harassment involved - & that bugs me...but humor is often transgressive. It's interesting & funny to hear pretenses punctured & people exposed for their pomposity, bigotry, hostility... Sociologically relevant... & I wasn't aware of it as a Genre itself & how it relates to touring bands & stuff...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/8/17 11:40am Mike East:

I saw Million Dollar Quartet a few years ago on Broadway. I thought it was a real fun show. I especially liked watching the onstage rhythm section who had little to no lines. Also, we provided backline for those American Songbook Lincoln Center shows. I was really excited to see the Cactus Blossoms were playing it. One of several recent shows that I would have liked to catch if I weren't so busy with a million other things in my life right now.
  Sat. 4/8/17 11:42am Clarke:

first of all - if you wanted to play chinese bells for two hours - YOU CAN! it's WFMU. 2ndly, the quality of the show was INCREDIBLY GREAT - the interviews were really good - something that is difficult to do with pranksters. i can testify that some fans were made even more loyal!!
Avatar Sat. 4/8/17 11:43am Michael Shelley:

Mike - I liked it - but in this production the drummer was the weak link - a good drummer, just not grasping the Sun style. In fact. on the night the Million $ Quartet actually happened - there was no drummer there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/8/17 11:44am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Clarke: It was presented well - good point.
  Sat. 4/8/17 11:45am Clarke:

many people don't know that DJ Fontana didn't even make the Sun scene until later - the drummer on early elvis songs (that have drums) is Johnny Bernaro
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 4/8/17 11:50am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Interesting. Many 50s trax have boxes or suitcases w/ reverb or something instead of drums...an exposition of this would be informative...

For Rome, it's kind of fun to just spend a few hours walking down random streets and seeing what's there, avoiding scary areas, of course. You might want to have a fake wallet with a couple € in it. Keep your real valuables in an undershirt pocket or something. Some folks recommend keeping pictures of your passport and a file with your credit card web site & phone number info on a password-protected USB flash drive, just in case.
Avatar Sat. 4/8/17 11:57am Michael Shelley:

I often go back to the Elvis Sun Session lp, and it is really spine tingling - and there are no drums at all.
  Sat. 4/8/17 11:59am Clarke:

there are great drums on rockabilly - Sid King & His Five Strings?? wow. i think bernaro plays drums on one of those sun sessions of elvis -- will have to check
