It should be Elvis or Eddie but,

You know I'm born too lose

And gambling is for fools

But that's the way I like it baby

I don't want to live forever

the Ace of Spades.....

Ah well.

You both beat me to that, one of my all time faves........I ain't no Senators son...no

Redrum, Robin Trower was my first "official" concert,sometime in 75.

What I mean by "Official" is I paid to get in. :)

Where did you see him? I saw him twice at Winterland in SF just about the same year.

But alas, Winterland fell to the wrecking ball. :(

And the last minute or so of Coma by GN'R is brilliant.

"Eleanor Rigby' - The Beatles

Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice

In the church where a wedding has been

Lives in a dream

Waits at the window, wearing the face

That she keeps in a jar by the door

Who is it for?

A couple of the best lines ever are from the Police: "I gues you'd call it suicide, but I'm too full to swallow my pride."

and from the Clash: "London is drowning and I live by the river!"

The Clash line is from London Calling, I love the Clash even though they called Zeppelin "Dinosaurs" ohmy.gif

The Police line is from Can't Stand Losing You. I will always remember the day Jerry Garcia died, I was working as a line cook durring the lunch rush with the local clasic rock station (100.7 WZLX) blasting in the background, and someone requested that tune for Jerry. I always listen to that song in a different way now.

Another great line I used for my senior quote "There comes a time within everyone to close your eyes to what's real." Pantera 1992

Here is a few I really like:

Stairway to Heaven – Led Zep

… Our shadow is taller than our soul …

Darker Side – Jonny Lang

Look at the people, they learn how to lie so easy

They learn how to lie to get what they need

And after they got what they needed

It turns into a simple case of greed

Life is Hard – Johnny Winter

I can't count the tears I cried

Life is hard and then you die

That Was Just Your Life by Metallica:

Almost like your life

Almost like your endless fight

Curse, the day is long

Realize you don't belong

Disconnect somehow

Never stop the bleeding now

Almost like your fight

And there it went

Almost like your life

The Stones:

"Well we all need

someone we can cream on

And if you to

Well, you can cream on me"

Sick bastards!


I just watched the Roger Waters live show from Portland and they had something set up with Marv Albert doing a play by play of an oil rig being hit by two torpedoes. Obviously a rant against oil, but I'm sure that afterwards they all ran to their Lear jets to fly to their next concert. <_<

You ain't a beauty but, hey, you're alright

At Seventeen (Janis Ian)

I learned the truth at seventeen

That love was meant for beauty queens

And high school girls with clear skinned smiles

Who married young and then retired

The valentines I never knew

The friday night charades of youth

Were spent on one more beautiful

At seventeen I learned the truth

Dogs - Pink Floyd

You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need.

You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street,

You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed.

And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight,

You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking...

...And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown.

And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone.

And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw


So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone,

Dragged down by the stone...

Us and Them - Pink Floyd

Us, and them

And after all we're only ordinary men.

Me, and you.

God only knows it's noz what we would choose to do.

Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

And as we wind on down the road

Our shadows taller than our soul.

There walks a lady we all know

Who shines white light and wants to show

How everything still turns to gold.

And if you listen very hard

The tune will come to you at last.

When all are one and one is all

To be a rock and not to roll.

And the people bowed and prayed

To the neon god they made

And the sign flashed out its warning

In the words that it was forming

And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls

And tenement halls"

And whispered in the sounds of silence

Sounds of Silence - Simon & Garfunkel

from It's Electric by Diamond Head

I stop on red, but I leave on amber, danger face my way

I'm gonna make it my friend, gonna make it today

Gotta get the dust from my hills down the highway I go

Gotta get the stars from my route, make it in a rock'n'roll show

The rooms were so much colder then

My Father was a soldier then

And times were very hard

When I was young

I smoked my first cigarette at 10

And for girls, I had a bad yen

And I had quite a ball

When I was young

I met my first love at thirteen

She was brown and I was pretty green

And I learned quite a lot

When I was young

'When I Was Young'---The Animals
