So G.Harrison gets sued for "My Sweet Lord" and Brian Wilson hasn't sued over L.Mychols track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:09am Stevel:

Outdoor grass is much nicer than indoor grass!

Good to be here!
  11:12am David in ATL from NJ:

That Nick Martellaro video is awesome!
Avatar 11:19am pgw in mntclr:

was supposed to see B&S in philly in '98, but they cancelled (and then someone in the crowd infamously yelled "we're going to f'ing kill you")
Avatar 11:22am Brian in UK:

Ah Clarence, what a loss.
  11:25am KW:

Clarence White tearin' it up! Particularly awesome show so far
  11:28am KW:

Never heard anyone nail the Kinks drum sound like that before
Avatar 11:31am pgw in mntclr:

  11:32am Sean:

"driving your mommas & poppas insane," thanks Peter No-one, I never actually heard those lyrics before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am Mike East:

Yeah, I agree, I really dug that version. Stripped down and tight.
  11:33am Sean:

Best thing I have EVER heard from H.H. I guess it just took some early Bowie songwriting to make it a No.1 hit.
  11:34am Andy in Berlin:

were HH even still together then?!
  11:39am JSG:

"Magic" was the theme for a kids show on Disney about teenage wizards.

Avatar 12:37pm Michael Shelley:

a evil intern did it: gawker.com...
  12:41pm Sean:

Mike, I am streaming you on the same platform I am using to edit a project on a Saturday. Your show is definitely competing for my attention with what I ought to be doing undisturbed.

Frankly Mike, I think you may be a drag on the economy!
Avatar 12:42pm Michael Shelley:

Tell your boss: "It was Michael Shelley's fault!!!!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm pacific standard simon:

@Sean - That's no attitude to have, young man!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:44pm Planet Tyler:

What a great show!
  12:45pm Sean:

Well I've already tried to blame it on Charlie Chaplin & Bugs Bunny, so at least he's in good company.
All troublemakers though.
