I picked up on it, but that's probably because I've had time to 'get' Feets' style of humour.

You motherfucker!! I love Burton Cummings and the Guess Who! I grew up on that shit(my parents were big fans). Great choice feets. Buzz Osbourne inspired choice as well. Not that familiar with other 2 but my curiosity led me to find out Hurley is known for his work with the Minutemen and Firehose. Czukay is a german musician, wild guy.

I just discovered the Guess Who about 2 years ago, and have found a world of greatness that I never suspected had existed. I think "Rockin" or "#10" are my favorite albums of theirs. Always love to hear from other fans - they're a loyal bunch!

Not sure why I put Buzz there, but I've been listening to a lot of Melvins lately and he's quite a creative guitarist with a sick heavy tone.

Holger Czukay played with the group Can during the seventies, and he and their drummer Jaki Leibezeit made for one of the most driving, hypnotic rhythm sections ever. Holger Czukay's picture is also My_Name_Is_Fritz's avatar.

As an aside....if you like Burton C., check out Maclean & Maclean's "Bitter Reality" album. Burton sings two songs you'll never hear him sing anywhere else {under the name...Frankie Fontaine (King Of Genital Rock) } :mrgreen:

It requires very long arms. :wink:

I guess by "engineering" I meant "production" or whoever does the editing and mixing. Whatever he did with those early Can records was pure magic.

That is one hell of a line-up you got there Disco Boy. My face can hardly contain the massive grin spreading exponetially across it with the thought of Barbara Streisand on Harmonica. I imagine that Tipper is a beast on the drums. Hammering those skins and delighting the audience with her erudite republican chops.

If I maybe so bold as to add to your delicious line-up. I would go for the following:

Arnold Schwarzenegger - Slap Bass
Marilyn Manson - Didgeridoo
George W Bush - Weapons of Mass Destruction

Smoking!


You and Disco Boy's band lineups remind me of this little tidbit:

"The Intro and the Outro" by the Bonzo Dog Band

Hi there, nice to be with you, glad you could stick around.
Like to introduce `Legs' Larry Smith, drums
And Sam Spoons, rhythm pole
And Vernon Dudley Bohay-Nowell, bass guitar
And Neil Innes, piano.
Come in Rodney Slater on the saxophone
With Roger Ruskin Spear on tenor sax.
I, Vivian Stanshall, trumpet.
Say hello to big John Wayne, xylophone
And Robert Morley, guitar.
Billy Butlin, spoons.
And looking very relaxed, Adolf Hitler on vibes.
Nice!
Princess Anne on sousaphone.
Mmm.
Introducing Liberace, clarinet
With Garner "Ted" Armstrong on vocals.
[Jazzy scat singing]
Lord Snooty and his pals, tap dancing.
In the groove with Harold Wilson, violin
And Franklin McCormack on harmonica.
Over there, Eric Clapton, ukulele.
Hi Eric!
On my left Sir Kenneth Clark, bass sax.
A great honour, sir.
And specially flown in for us, the session's gorilla on vox humana.
Nice to see Incredible Shrinking Man on euphonium.
Drop out with Peter Scott on duck call.
Hearing from you later, Casanova on horn.
Yeah! Digging General de Gaulle on accordion.
Rather wild, General!
Thank you, sir.
Roy Rogers on Trigger.
Tune in Wild Man of Borneo on bongos.
Count Basie Orchestra on triangle.
[CBO:] (Ting!)
Thank you.
Great to hear the Rawlinsons on trombone.
Back from his recent operation, Dan Druff, harp.
And representing the flower people, Quasimodo on bells.
[Q:] Hooray!
Wonderful to hear Brainiac on banjo.
We welcome Val Doonican as himself.
[V:] Hullo there!
Very appealing, Max Jaffa.
Mmm, that's nice, Max!
What a team, Zebra Kid and Horace Batchelor on percussion.
A great favourite and a wonderf-

That song is awesome!!!!! I always knew Hitler was a vibes player, BAD VIBES.... har har har.....(groan)

Glad to see more FZ fans who love Kaylan/Volman. I always felt that they could have participated later in Frank's career for unique vocal accents to his various projects (picture Mark V as Harry in Thing-Fish)

LMFAO!!! :wink: Seriously though,I think out of all the bands the Flo & Eddie era lineup is one of the most underrated and overlooked of FZ's career. Definitely one of the most fun bands for sure!

Absolutely LaMarr. I always felt that those guys allowed FZ to push the limit and were good enough vocalists that art was not compromised
