    The Greatest Moment in Musical History

    For me it has to be the John Barnes rap on "World in Motion"

    No, I'm not joking......genius

    ^Barnes played in the 1990 title winning side at Liverpool, then appeared in the World Cup for England, scoring a controversially disallowed goal against Belgium in the second round. He was injured when England went out to West Germany on penalties in the semi-final. Barnes had again supplied a rap for a tie-in song, "World In Motion" by New Order, which was a UK No.1 and is still regarded by many as the best football song ever made.

    I had to look that up I'd never heard of it.

    I really wish I could download youtube at times, so this wasn't a "same riff for 15 minutes" job of Young's then?

    Lou Reed touring with Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter was one of the highlights of the seventies.

    New years eve, 1969. Fillmore East. band of Gypsies.
    Newport Folk Festival 1965 Bob Dylan blows the folksy folks away with some electric enhanced music, changes the course of folk/rock forever.
    August 1969 The album "Blind Faith is released the first of the short-lilved one album "super-groups"
    The Greatest Moment in Musical History??
    No such animal.
    how about the day Billie Holliday recorded her last album? Dunken dope fiend of a ho she was, man that voice... got a track where she just sang this one song, a cappella. Still will play that and replay it every time I listen.
    The day Robert Johnson recorded "Sweet Home Chicago?" or any number of the other songs he recorded that went on to become the bedrock on which The Blues and Rock 'n Roll were built?

    "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" was another milestone from yank-land, fekking far-out freaks they were at the time, matched by Amoon Duul's "Phallus Dei" on a European level.

    Yep, been a big Finn fan for years. All sarted with Split Enz for me. Missed rehearsing one song on bass with 'em but that was cut short because of unionized stagehands. Met them again backstage after the show where I worked in Ottawa. Asked for autographs and Hester had me autograph something for him Funny guys. May the Finns never stop writing music.

    1987 in Phuket. I was invovled in one of the first dive companies to set up here. As part owner, I had free diving and used to help out on the five day trips to Similan.
    In those days, we used to camp on the beach. In the evenings, light a fire and get pissed.
    There was one guy that took the tour called James. Tall, gangly bloke who was very shy and quiet.
    He brought a guitar to the camp fire sessions and played it damn well. I told him so too. Told him I thought he was good enough to play professionally.
    He told me that he was already a musician with a band called Australian Crawl. He was on his way to Japan to meet his girlfriend and play music with Japanese instruments.
    He said that the band was breaking up, but, nobody knew yet.
    I had never heard of Australian Crawl and James Reye and thought James was just a bloody good bloke.
