Taken at Face Value, a generous offer, if You Know What I Mean.

Great, now the biatches who run the damn thing will hide anything that doesn't jive with their account of history...

Their account being the John Wayne movie.

I hear they've got a lot of storage in the basement.

I sense the genesis of a word-play thread.

Pee Wee Herman wants to view the collection but hopes he doesn't have to take off his pants and jacket.

Lengthy but interesting Texas Monthly article on his collection from a couple of years back here.

That's a pretty badass hobby to have if you ask me :)

Sorry for not continuing the Genesis/Phil Collins thread here, lol

Am I the only one wondering why a middle-aged musician from London has a world-class collection of Texas Revolution artifacts?

Clearly, however, not wondering enough to actually try to find the reason.

Same reason a Canadian musician has one of the worlds largest collections of Negro League memorabilia: because he can.

I heard that Phil loaned some of the artifacts to Ronnie James Dio years ago and Dio wouldn't return them. Collins was preparing to sue sue sue Dio.

I'll get my coat.

He's an Easy Lover of Texas independence artifacts. And yes, I too wanted to post how they would now fill an empty space.

He may as well do something productive, since the guy can't dance or sing.  The boys from Oasis say, "He's, still a cooont".

Obligatory retelling of a woman i knew in the Navy who claimed Phil smashed it back in the day.  Genesis was touring the US mid 70s, she and some friends went tot he LA Forum to party, some English roadies came by, "ehhhhh, would yer like to meet the band, like?"  she got to meet the band, she and Phil met, long story short your boy crushed.

did i mention she was about 15?  I'm guessing he was in his mid or late 20s?  she was like, "Hey, that was LA in the 70s....it was all good."


I asked her what she thought about when she would hear him and she just laughed and said, "it was so long ago it doesn't even mean anything but, yeah, i kinda laugh when i hear his music.)

Way to make a beautiful story about an underage girl who dreamed of the sea, and a poor English musician struggling with premature baldness, whom together found an unlikely love against the backdrop of The City of Angels, sound like a frathouse bone session.

I read that Jimmy Page's LA girlfriend in the 70's was a 14 year old model.  Those rock guys back then were a getting away with it.

yeah and if im not mistaken, she rode the circuit (pardon the pun), as I think she breifly dated Bowie and Jagger.  she may have been the inspiration for the character in that shiatty cameron crowe semi-biopic movie about the rock star and the young writer.

Different people.

You may well be thinking of Bebe Buell, mother of Liv Tyler (who grew up thinking her father was Todd Rundgren, until at the age of 11 she began noticing her uncanny resemblance to Steven Tyler's other daughter Mia, a regular visitor...). Bebe dated Bowie, Jagger, and more, even while married to Rundgren.

The character Penny Lane in Almost Famous was inspired by the real-life Pennie Lane, real name Pennie Trumbull, whom Crowe met and befriended when traveling with/writing about the Allman Brothers band, although the character is really a composite of several groupies he met. One very important difference is that the real Pennie chose to walk away when she knew the time was right and happily got on with the rest of her life, unlike the movie's Penny.

Or she may have just been a slut in the 70's, who knows?

I'm sure there are rich middle-aged Americans who have medieval suits of armor or pre-Raphaelite art or other such European goodies.

The baldness didn't kick in until about 1980.  He was still pretty cute in the 1970s:
