Classic Rock Bottom


Hey aren't there any HAPPY Clown Songs?
I'll try with a few Ha Ha's and an early appearance in Pop Music of a Mellotron.
Did you know that Professional Clowns unofficially "Trademark" their faces by sending close-up photos of themselves in full makeup to the Department Of Clown Registry in Milwaukee?
And that photo is painted on a Goose Egg, where it is kept on file!
Closing out this Chapter, I'll take you back to the late 60's for the Beacon Street Union and Dave Davies with Songs about the Death Of A Clown!
That may be it for the Clowns, but I have 2 more Episodes next week of Carnivals and Circuses in me.
I'll get this right if it kills me, lol!
But give a listen to this whimsical effort, I like how it turned out!
And remember those who have fallen, on Memorial Day!

A Clown School eh?

I wonder if there is a Written Test, LOL?

To refresh your memory, in here were such Solid Rock Citizens as: Gary Lewis & Playboys, Manfred Mann, Joni Mitchell, Yardbirds, Fortunes, Ralph McTell, Beacon Street Union and Dave Davies.

A damn good lineup!

Thanks for the listen,

There was a clown school (I think it's a school) in Henderson, Nevada. Wonder if it's still there. Ok, I listened to this last Thursday and remember nothing. That's the way it is.
