Guns N' Roses Ft. Sir Elton John Playing November Rain

Interesting idea, but I don't think Axel has the years to carry this off.

p.s. So how? Lemmy vs Rod Stewart. Freddie with Black Sabbath. Yah seriously. John Lydon vs Kate Bush. Jan vs Eric Clapton (no scratch that, I know that one is never gonna happen lol ;)

What happened to those AIDS ribbon badges? Has AIDS gone away? No, it was just all about you for as long as your attention lasted.

Meanwhile I feel a little like Caeser, re the above. Unsure whether to give it the thumbs up or down.

What say thee?

I find this strangely emotional.

Don't know if it's just because I respect him for achieving this. Or because he shares a sport with me, a psychological thing, as well as a recreation, and he's right out on the boundary wire.


Yeah, I'd buy him a Heineken.

Paul Hardcastle (1985)
Vietnam



Remember going around to a neighbour. Her a Lady [ won't name her, as that's F all to do with the story], and her late husband was in Bomber Command. Sitting in her kitchen, with this on the radio. Her in her 80s, and I honestly think she got it. Amazing woman. [Eh X, side-meme, people in their 80's who have like guru insight]

Pretty surreal. I think they broke the mold on that generation.

If the Americans had any passion, they'd do Orbital, or Chicane, ... or Prodigy.


But they don't. Because as a self-professed free state they are surprisingly anally retentive [they[re cool enough to let me float that comment of course]

The B-52's - Give Me Back My Man (by Karmadoza)

Love the original... I mean you can't fake that passion.

Last I checked, the B-52s are American......as are other 'passionless' people like Aretha, Jimi, Janis, and maybe one or two others.
