Eddie brings on the right questions, but; I’d really pile it on to some many bands, freakin Skid Row are playing a bar in an area of town where I live I’d never go after dark. 119 people down from 18,000 in ’90, Bach-less. Belinda Carlisle in ’85 was down to 20G after massive Go Go’s success…you wonder who else got horsed by managers,labels, etc.. God bless Ozzy & Paul McCartney is god.
DR u paying attention man, we re into Belinda Carlisle and Paul F#$king Mc Cartney here. The bravest of new worlds no doubt. Lee keep in mind how sensitive everyone is now and if Eddie piles it on, he wont get return guests and these guys would back away from him. That’s just the way it is. Imagine Eddie asking Axl Rose: HEY WHY R U SUCH A DOUCHE? No way. Mc Cartney backed up Ringo on a song called WALK WITH YOU a few years back. Loved it. Belinda Carlisle had success later in the 80s but a Bach-less SKID ROW in 2013 is along the lines of GREAT WHITE or WINGER who I think were supposed to be commenting on here. No matter, excuse me ’cause I m going to listen to SGT PEPPER right now. The SGT PEPPER(reprise) has elements of metal and John Lennon ‘s bit at the end of DAY IN THE LIFE is perfection.
Richman I just saw McCartney two nights ago. It was the second time I’ve seen him and it was the BEST concert I’ve been to. So many acts could learn how to put on a show from a 71 year old legend. Dude played for 3 hours and it was hit after hit after hit after hit. 50 fucking years of music that nobody could touch. I just stood in awe for 3 fucking hours. More importantly, although I dawned the black t-shirt and needed the haircut just like you, I must admit I had a thing for Belinda back in the day. She was hot (not Lita hot like Lee says, but hot none the less). Never forget when she hooked up with Steve Garvey, Steve Fuckin Garvey.
Garvey was a known woman beater and a buddy of O.J. Simpson ( we got the fucking Juice in a WINGER commentary). Anyway Belinda deserved better than that and its 12:30 on the east coast, the METS are actually winning and I had 4 beers. Bed time, the RICHMAN signing off for the evening. LONG LIVE ROCK N ROLL. REST IN PEACE HUDSON VALLEY COMMEDIAN AND RADIO PERSONALITY COOPER. A FUNNY MAN WITH A GOOD REP. 49 YEARS OLD IS MUCH TOO YOUNG TO DIE.
This Winger Post now has 49 comments. Everything from Winger to WASP to Lita and Iommi, to McCartney, to Belinda, to Garvey and finally to OJ. I hope Eddie or Dana aren’t ready any of this as they might just shut this site down.
Make it 50. There is advertising here and the more comments the better. Kiko on top of the page doesn’t mind and there is a SLAYER @ THE GARDEN ad, not to mention Kip Winger himself and a Lita herself on the RATT bilboard. Through discourse comes success.
Sorry it s A DAY IN THE LIFE no disrespect but its been a while
Now into the ALLMANS, DREAMS is a rip off of A DAY IN THE LIFE but still a great song.
