He said, no no no, I don't wear them no more, I'm tired of ending up on the floor.

Semi-CSB:  my best friend grew up in Manchester; we're both children of the 80s/90s. Few years ago his parents came to the US to visit. They said they were actually originally from Liverpool.  I did the math; they were probably in their teens, early 20s, IN LIVERPOOL. I said, "excuse me, but.....I'm a huge Beatles fan. Did you ever see - "

"WE SAW THEM ALL THE TIME!  Cavern Club!  All the local fetes!  They were just another band in Liverpool. They weren't famous. Just a local band. This was around '61, '62."  My jaw hit the godamned floor.

My pal's mother goes on, "saw them dozens and dozens of times.  I would see them before and after shows. I fancied Paul but he fancied my friend.  George was so shy, as young as he was. John, you never knew - funny John, angry John, Ringo so funny.

"We would see them, and they'd see us and invite us to dinner after the show.  One time John didn't finish his dinner and I was starving - I finished his sandwich!"*

She goes on, "then they went to London, and became, you know 'THE BEATLES', and conquered the world.  Never saw them again.  I was so very crushed when John died, and George.....we weren't friends, but, we did know each other.

*this comment usually gets pornolized, that's fine.

/not a milligram of exaggeration or BS.

I think you're better off if you wear your own.  Have to get the lenses switched out anyway, and I think you can get the frames online for quite a bit less.

Ringo's glasses aren't even the best glasses in the Beatles.

/Pretty sure what I just done said is based on a false quotation, however.

I mean, I've had people express amazement that I saw Radiohead at a local venue with a capacity approaching something like 500 when I was 15 or so.

Thom Yorke was pisht, introduced "Creep" with, "It's karaoke time, again."

This one time at the Bitter End (NYC) when I had to stand up from my chair so Joni Mitchell could stand on it and get on stage.  I held her hand to steady her.  Joni Mitchell...one voice mike, one acoustic guitar mike and one lab stool. Stayed right there all night and repeated as necessary.  A friend knew who she was and and insisted we get there early for best seats.  She was awesome and I fell in love.  I knew Harry and Tom Chapin when they (and more of the Chapin family) were The Chapins.  Harry dated my gf's roomate.  I've shared cornflakes with Harry and Tom, Really nice people.

pissnmoan: Joni Mitchell


A story I've related before.....5-6 years ago before Lemmy checked out, a comic on I think Marc Maron podcast told a story of how "a couple of years ago" he was at an LA comedy club, and as "talent", was in the backstage area.  Lemmy walks in. Because who says no to Lemmy?  Joni shows up.

Comic is like, "uh....there are 3 people in the room.  Lemmy, Joni, and me.  Who the fark am *I*?"

Comic: "Lemmy says, "Joni, great to meet you.  Fookin' 'ell, I been tryin' to learn fookin' "Hejira" for fookin' years!  'Ow the fook d'ya play that?"  Joni laughs.

a guitar is there and Joni tunes it to one of her weird Joni tunings, and shows him the song.

Comic is like, "I'm watching.....Joni Mitchell teaching LEMMY 'Hejira'!!!"  "No, no no, the fingers go here, and then after the 3rd bar go here, and then on the 7th bar, do *this*...."

"And Lemmy was a Joni Mitchell fan?!?!?!?!  Blew my mind!"
