QuoteNikkei "the two versions of the Braun Logo" now we are getting somewhere Did Braun or Cefalu create the logos? Yes. Ernie worked for Craig, and as the owner of the agency, he gets to take the credit. Who put pen to paper? Cefalu. As the artist, he gets to also take the credit because Cefalu wasn't his employee, he was a freelancer. It was actually Marshall Chess who

Oh, by the way, Mrs. Roller just reminded me (she's my source) that a couple of years ago when we were hanging out with Burton, he told us that "Let It Ride" is a direct lift of "Immigrant Song" by Randy. "American Woman" came about as The Guess Who were warming up on stage at a place in Toronto called The Broom and Stone, and Burton was out in the parking lo

People would have stayed home in droves! I always like to joke that if Mick Jagger put out a "greatest hits", it would be a 45 at best.

Great to see BTO showing up here on IORR. I have some great stories about Randy and Burton. Burton as it turns out, was Ernie Cefalu's closest friend for over 30 years. Between 2015 and 2018, the three of us used to hang out at Ernie's place, doing a live broadcast on FB. I first met Randy in 1986, funnily enough, my stepfather managed The Guess Who. Last time Randy toured SoCal, B

Thanks for the kind words everyone, the interview was mostly done for the IORR community. If it weren't for IORR, I would never have become a writer for Goldmine, etc. Most of my questions were culled from topics I've seen discussed here. Cheers!

QuoteStoneage Thanks, Roller 99. Read the parts I was interested in. Thanks for asking those "fan questions" about setlists and so. I wasn't expecting any answers from them (and I was right) but you tried your best. I do believe that the vote is real most of the time, in the sense that Mick won't put a song in that he hates. One of the guys told me they know what the choi

QuoteThe Joker Very interesting. I finally get Matt Clifford's part. TR: Matt sort of bridges the rhythm section because he's got two or three keyboards on his rack, and he can play piano sounds, he can make organ sounds, like a Fender Rhodes, he can make string sounds or make it sound like a low brass or a trumpet. So he kind of does a lot of different sounds. So there's

When this got published, it was trimmed to fit. Unfortunately, the meat was trimmed, leaving out the comments of The Stones' promoter, John Meglen out. What he had to say about Ticketmaster and the whole mechanism of choosing show locations, ticket dumping, etc was in some ways more relevant than the band. What Goes Into A Stones Tour (Un-edited)

Some people here kill me. Last week Hairball "reported" on the May 8th opener telling us what would have happened. During Desert Trip, he reported on the food, telling us how big the pizza slices were, and how many pepperoni pieces there were on a slice, like the scene in Casino where Deniro tells the chef, "I want an equal amount of blueberries in each muffin." It is to la

Neither best or worst, just a few missing here I think deserve honorable mention: Supermensch, The Legend of Shep Gordon Who The F**k is Arthur Vogel - Some great insights into how the modern concert business developed. Does Humor Belong In Music - Frank Zappa Tantrums and Tiaras - Elton John All You Need Is Klaus - Doc on Klaus Voorman A Matter of Trust - Billy Joel's trip
