The Hollies “The Air That I Breathe” and “Creep” by Radiohead are both great songs right? But have you ever considered how similar they sound? Well Albert Hammond Jr’s (off of the Strokes) father Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood have a co writing credit for “Creep” owing to the similarity between that and “The Air That I Breathe”, particularly the chord progression. How come I didn’t know that until now and now I can hear it every time I listen to either song!

“Disappointment haunted all of my dreams” August 2, 2017


My wife said that she would leave me if I couldn’t stop my obsession with the Monkees. I thought that she was joking, and then I saw her face……

Anyway although the Monkees were effectively a manufactured band I thought that they were pretty good, how about you? Did you know that over 400 musicians auditioned to be in the band, including Stephen Stills, Harry Nilsson, John Sebastian, Paul Williams, Danny Hutton (of Three Dog Night) and allegedly Charles Manson. Although some reports state that Manson was in prison at the time of the auditions.

In an occasional series of music related jokes here is one of my favourites. Thank you to those smashing people at Popbitch for bringing this one to my attention and for giving me the opportunity to play such a great track again!

Apologies in advance, but this came to me via amail earlier today and I couldn’t resist passing it on 🙂

Stevie Wonder is playing his first gig in Tokyo and the place is absolutely packed to the rafters. In a bid to break the ice with his new audience, He asks if anyone would like him to play a request. A little old Japanese man jumps out of his seat in the first row and shouts at the top of his voice “Play a Jazz chord! Play a jazz chord!” Amazed that this guy knows about the jazz influences in Stevie’s varied career, the blind impresario starts to play an E minor scale and then goes into a difficult jazz melody for about 10 minutes. When he finishes the whole place goes wild. The little old man jumps up again and shouts “No, no, play a Jazz chord, play a Jazz chord”. A bit irritated by this, Stevie, being the professional that he is, dives straight into a jazz improvisation with his band around the B flat minor chord and really tears! the place apart. The crowd goes wild with this impromptu show of his technical expertise. The little old man jumps up again. “No, no. Play a Jazz chord, play a jazz chord”. Well now truly irritated that this little guy doesn’t seem to appreciate his playing ability. Stevie says to him from the stage “OK jerk. You get up here and do it!” The little old man climbs up onto the stage, takes hold of the mike and starts to sing….. “A jazz chord to say I ruv you…
