Classic Rock Bottom


Now THIS is a challenge!
And one I have been thinking about for years.
To try and take Music and use it to Build A House!
While I always knew how I would begin, and a few stops along the way, with this Series I truly do not know where I am going, lol!
So I will trust the Muse within to keep things on track and intellectually stimulating, while I venture into as-yet-unknown territory.
Both the Beauty and Peril of Free-Form Radio!
Seems to me, the obvious place to begin is with Tools.
One in particular I would think is necessary for ANY kind of Construction!
The weather is nice, a perfect time to Build A House.
Join me- you don't have to do any work, I'll do all the Heavy Lifting.
You just have to listen!
Here are the links to listen and draw up some blueprints, at Mike Pell Rockollections:

And hey RJ, leave my roof alone!
It ain't built yet, lol!

Sorry I am late too, but not as late
You could understand Dylan because it was early in his career and he hadn't mastered his mumble yet, lol!
I find it very easy to believe you do stuff in the garage and keep the door closed!
In fact it was YOU on the roof signaling with the flashlight!
Now here, I think you mean "lick" instead of "like", talk about Carson filthy!

First I thought it was The Corrs, than found out it wasn't. Oh well. Not bad, but they mentioned sweat and I was gonna say that I would like the sweat off The.....
And you call ME disgusting, LOL?
But I'd do the Corrs girls!
Jon me lad, I was more than half nekkid...hehehehehehe!
Who can tell?
I have the air conditioner on low so as not to come over the microphone too badly.
That song you expect...about the morning...I WOULD!
Just keep waiting, but not without breathing, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

Sorry I am late, been very busy working plus I have put up Part Two.
That's a good feeling you have about CSN&Y, put ALL your money on it, lol!
I am just not sure when.
Good pick, I didn't think of Madness- and honestly I am too tired to look for it now.
Regarding the Indigo Girls, I don't remember when I heard about that but I did- and like you I am a lesbian too.
In fact, I am a lesbian in a man's body, lol!
Someone should invent a Lifesaver flavor...oh never mind!
The Golden Pell goes to Dylan, and again I agree about the acoustic work- after picking that one, I gave it my first real close listen and was amazed at the manic strumming!
And it goes all the way back to 1962...and didn't make the CUT for his first album!
Folgelberg track was a close second, good man! how you ended the comment.
Yes, you have a right to know, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing,

You know, YOU can take credit for this series- your recent suggestion finally got me off my ass and into this TRY at it.
I could fall on my face here cause I really don't know where I am going with this one, lol!
I always knew I would start with the tools, although I will be moving quickly away from them, ignoring things like circular saws and screwdrivers.
I wouldn't be so sure of my having any Anthrax, lol!
More probably I have them on compilation albums somewhere.
Didn't surprise you with the beginning eh?- ah you are getting to know me too well.
The Indigo Girls tune is realy good, and I needed it to make for a nice set.
I KNEW you would pick up on those staples, lol!
A few more in Part Two.
Nice pick, the Golden Pell to Tom Waits!
It is damn creepy, lol!
When I worked with Engineer Ken, he would weave it in as I was talking during the Halloween shows, taking me by surprise but creating much fun!
Oh and that is a great Indigo Girls comment by Scott, not sure what to say in response...hahahahaha!
Thanks for the listen and writing, and wish me are partly responsible, lol,

Bob Dylan surprised me can understand him! Yay!

That Tom Waites "thang" was pretty funny, but I keep saying "SHUT UP!". Then it dawmened on me that he was talking about me! I do stuff in the garage and keep the door closed! Tee hee!

First I thought it was The Corrs, than found out it wasn't. Oh well. Not bad, but they mentioned sweat and I was gonna say that I would like the sweat off The.....nevermind.

Kinda disgusting that you were doing the show half nekkid. To each his own, I guess. Still expecting you to mention that song about morning wood, but I'll just wait?

Great Indigo Girls comment Scott...

Of course, once the house is built, we're gonna want to blow the roof off of it!

Comment by Scott on June 4, 2013 at 11:26am

I feel Our House from CSN&Y coming up soon, just a guess, but I'd put money on that one...  And then Our House from Madness, you know, the one in the middle of the street!  I think those two may make an appearance.

I too liked the Indigo Girls song from the first set of tunes.  I know nothing about them other than I have something in common...  Were all Lesbians.

Golden Pell goes to Dylan, that was spectacular!  Never heard it before, but the acoustic work is awesome.  I also liked the Folgelberg track as a close second...

Cool topic and cool start, it will be interesting to see What The Hell Your Building in here!!!  We have a right know!

You definitely have to start with the tools.  I'm having trouble though thinking of songs about circular saws and screwdrivers (although I'm pretty sure I remember a song titled Screwdriver on last year's Anthrax release).  I'm sure you have that one.

I'm not surprised at all with what you kicked the show off with.  But I really liked the inclusion of The Indigo Girls tune.  It's been a long time since I heard that song.  

You played two staples.  Do you know who I'm referring too?  Dylan and Fogelberg.  

I'm giving the Golden Pell to Tom Waits, even though it's not really a song.  But it's plenty creepy.  I mean way creepy.  Nice addition to this show.
