I watched a documentary on Chicago the other night. Quite a career, transforming from a rather terrific horn band – with Hendrix-approved guitarist – to earnest power ballad millers.
I did spill my bedtime tea when I saw Peter Cetera wearing, in this video, a Bauhaus t-shirt. It’s got the artwork from their “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” single:
Admittedly, not as shocking as learning Serge Gainsbourg once autographed a copy of “Je t’aime… moi non plus” for Albert Speer, but still.
Here are some other melon-twisting musical facts I have of late accumulated:
- The guitarist for the Police is 75
- Pete Townshend was an editor at Faber & Faber
- The drummer for Culture Club auditioned for the Clash
Well, that’s enough to lay on you for now. Until next time, Gentle Reader, know this: you’re the meaning in my life.
