With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“Are you sorry we drifted apart?” April 17, 2014


elvis_presley-1650Elvis was the King and to many he still is, but I thought that maybe his crown might have amounted to more than just a tooth. a crown that was made for Presley’s teeth by former Memphis dentist Henry J Weiss. The crown was recently bought for $11,000 by Michael Zuk, a collector of celebrity teeth. Are there any more weird collectors than that? He also recently bought one of John Lennon‘s teeth and is planning to clone Lennon from that tooth!

This is to promote awareness of mouth/ oral cancer. As well as seeing the crown there will be music, costumes and a model of Elvis’ teeth. I don’t think I’ll be going. It’s hardly Bowie at the V & A is it? Click here to read the full story on the NME website.

queenImagine how different music history might have been if Brian May had left Queen in 1974 just a short while before things really began to take off for them. It might have happened, during 1974 Queen were supporting Sparks in London and Ron Mael took the opportunity to ask Brian to become guitarist for Sparks. I wonder what direction each band would have taken had Mr May said yes? What do you think?

“Hey there Bill, could you turn the lights up?”


kate bush lifejacketNow that the dust has settled on the excitement of the sale of tickets to see Kate Bush on stage after all these years (who’d have guessed that was going to happen?) I thought that it would be appropriate to entertain you with my top 10 Kate songs. As for those profiteers who have bought tickets with no intention of using them; may the fleas of a thousand camels infest in your arse and raise generations of flea families there. I also hope that said fleas make the arses of anyone associated with Viagogo and other so-called ticket exchange sites an urgent infestment priority. This is not the rant of a disgruntled punter without a ticket, I have mine. This is the rant of a music lover who believes that there should be no room in the world for ‘ticket exchange’ organisations who are in fact nothing better than licensed touts. They are the pay-day loan companies of the entertainment industry. Demand for these tickets was always going to exceed supply but for companies to be selling these tickets at such a massive premium sucks Satan’s cock in my opinion.

OK take your mind off of that whole issue and listen to Billy’s top 10 Kate Bush songs.
