    Lorrie Morgan.....I like how she hesitates and then runs into the phrase. She did some fade out in lower register and the guitar solo was just perfect......

    Old school Craftsman screw driver!

    They didn't try Marvel Mystery Oil first? That was the first thing to try on a vehicle that has been sitting for years.

    I am from Chicago. Originally they were CTA based on Chicago Transit Authority that ran the buses, the subways, the elevated (EL), etc. but they were told to change their name or face legal action.

    They and Styx were very famous. I knew some of the guys from Styx.

    But Chicago had many more better musicians. Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Gene Krupa, Dinah Washington, Ramsey Lewis, Herbie Hancock, Benny Goodman, and Sam Cooke. Okay, we have to accept Kanye West.

    Does "Gloria" by the Shadows of Night count as a one hit wonder? Van Morrison had a good run after that. Moondance is one of my favorite albums and a great song.

    I listened to some Animals songs after the game. Even Eric Burdon with War Spill the Wine.

    Then went to an old Donovan song: Sunshine Superman. IIRC a very young Jimmy Page was the studio guitar player on that song.

    Next up was Hurdy Gurdy Man.

    John Bonham on drums. John Paul Jones on bass. And Jimmy Page claims he play the guitar, but other folks disagree.

    Yep. Some also say a 50-50 mixture of automatic transmission fluid and acetone.

    I had an old 911 that had sat for 10 years and we ended up tearing the engine down due to too much corrosion. It's still at my mechanic's place. I'm hoping to get her back one day...lol...

    Cool vid though - those old Stallone flicks. A bit corny but more than make up for it with the blue collar themes.

    Which reminds me.....September 1972, as a newly enrolled freshman housed at Simpson Hall dorm this is one the the first (of MANY!) albums I bought during my five year stint in Gatorville.......

    I missed U2 playing at the Rathskeller because I was about one year away from being in Gainesville. I know some folks that claimed they were there. Kind of like claiming to be at Woodstock, but my BIL actually had tickets to Woodstock that he still has.

    And once I got here I was so poor that I couldn't afford a ticket to see Elvis Costello. I just got to town and had no money. I sold some LPs to Hyde and Zeke to be able to buy peanut butter and jelly for my dinners.

    But the Plasmatics was a free show on the Plaza of the Americas. That was wild.
