Uh... Tim's still alive. Wheelchair-bound after his stroke in 2012, but still alive. That song was written by Dick Wagner and Michael Kamen, and they play on the record as well. Was trying to find the live version of that song at the Chicago 1978 concert, but that one's not on YT anymore. The rest of the concert is, but not Sloe Gin.

When I was a rancid little teenager, Rock and Roll Animal was one of my favorite albums. I loved the interplay between the guitars.

Another of my favorites from those rancid days was Alice Cooper's Welcome to My Nightmare. When I realized it was the same guys, my head nearly exploded...

My favourite Cooper/Wagner song was this...

...which I was thought was meant slightly ironically, though so might disagree.

"I love my bar and I love my truck
I'd do most anything to make a buck
I love a waitress who loves to... flirt!
They're the best kind!"

Always got a kick out of that stanza :mrgreen:

Somewhat off topic here, but Alice just came through my neck of the woods as part of the Motley Crüe farewell tour. He hit a local golf course the day of the show and the Sacramento Bee did a story on it on the sports page. This isn't Plook's regular course but I'm sure he's played there. AC mentions that Dweezil would be part of his all-time golf rock star foursome.

Oh yes I know Tim is still with us BeBeePeee....A friend of mine has a pirated dvd of the Chicago 78 concert, which is where I first heard Sloe Gin, I rang him this morning asking to borrow it, and he said he loaned it to me last year and that I still have it???? I'm now searching the stacks, but I'm almost 100% positive that I returned it....If and when I locate it, I'll youtube it and zap you the link.....

Rod De'Ath died today.

same here. that was (and still is) an amazing album.
both of them (steve hunter and dick wagner) also played on peter gabriel's first solo album (which is another really great album). rest in peace.

BBP, when you posted the Tim Curry tune, I too thought he had died. But I had no idea he had a stroke that left him in a wheelchair. Glad he's still with us but sad all the same....

Eel - you were like an eel to me. Every time I think of an eel, you will be the example that comes to mind. RIP Eel - your legacy will not be forgotten.

My friend Bill Messiter died suddenly this week.
Image
He was a great man: possibly the greatest person I've ever known. He worked for a number of international aid organizations, most notably CARE. He spent most of the last 25 years in Mozambique; a country ravaged by a decades-long civil war and indescribable poverty.

Bill had lots of chances to leave. But he vowed he would never abandon the people he loved so much.

And he didn't...
