  1. Terry Reid turned down Deep Purple as well, with the gig going to Ian Gillan
  2. We Are The World - Michael Jackson and "friends"
  3. Heaven Is A Place On Earth - Belinda Carlisle
  4. Anyone from the 1930's, like Mae West or Jean Harlow, back in the days when even the whores and tramps were witty. A reporter once asked Jean Harlow is she was wearing a bra and she responded "That's sounds like a near-sighted question..."
  5. It's because of that very movie I have to say Pacino. Al Pacino has never annoyed me, but De Niro annoyed the shit out of me in that movie. Another reason why I vote Pacino is because I saw him once in a movie, one of the first films he made, and I didn't recognise him, because he was young and had a beard, and I was watching the film thinking "gee, this guy is such a great actor, I wonder why he never became famous?" well when I saw the credits, I realised! I think the film was Serpico. Interesting story about Robert De Niro, when he was making that film New York New York with Liza Minelli, John Kander and Fred Ebb wrote a song for the movie, New York New York of course, and they took the song to a production meeting, and De Niro said he didn't like it, he didn't think the song was very good. So Kander & Ebb, at that stage two very successful composers, left the meeting very pissed off. So they went back to work and grudingly had a re-write of the song, which of course became the song we all know, and their biggest hit.
  6. Voice-wise I can't tell the difference anymore between Bob Dylan and Marianne Faithfull Regina Spektor's singing really shits me off, I can't bear to listen to her crap. All new singers today just can't sing the fucking song, they have to ooze it and simper it and all this other crap. I blame American Idol/Mariah Carey/Christina Aguilera
  7. Someone asked Ethel Merman if she was nervous playing the lead in Gypsy on Broadway and she replied "Nervous? Why would I be nervous? If anybody could play the role better than me, then they would be playing it"
  8. Yeah actually, Pete Townshend was on that album. John Lennon Plastic Ono Band is bloody good album.
  9. Well there's a team player for you...
  10. I have to agree with Gelnda Jackson though, about acting she said: You'd think it's something one would grow out of. But you grow into it. The more you do, the more you realize how painfully easy it is to be lousy and how very difficult to be good. She also said about her Oscars: My mother polishes them to within an inch of their lives until the metal shows. That sums up the Academy Awards - all glitter on the outside and base metal coming through. Nice presents for a day. But they don't make you any better.
  11. Yeah you didn't really pick up on that, did you? Anyway, Press To Play was one of the first albums, if not the first, album I ever bought. I think I was 10 or 11, anyway I listened to it again last night and it's not as bad as what I thought it was
