in thread Rap Star I would most like as my Project Manager

but speaking as a scholar of the period,

Hmmm. Showing my age yet again, but I lived through the period:). One night in '77 or '78 I was in Dingwall's at Camden Lock waiting to watch Suzi & The Banshees when a fight broke out. I heard later that it had been (some of) the Sex Pistols, but it was far enough away that I didn't see it myself.

As for thinking JR did the My Way cover, I honestly didn't think SV was ever straight enough, long enough to actually record the lyrics to a complete song, the base on the albums was mostly over dubbed by a session musican, so I just assumed is was JR. I (still) quite like a few of the things he did with Public Image Ltd. Strange, but strangely evocative, not that I have listened to any of it for many years.

BTW: Who are "Kevin Smith ... Jason Mewes"?

(And no, I'm not joking. I quite literally have no idea:)

Thanks for the bit of history and a short trip down memory lane. '76 (the best summer the UK ever had) through 79/80 my first trip to the States and Canada was just about the best period of my youth.

2) The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible

    Wow, Siouxsie and the Banshees in a club. That must have been a good show. It may well have been one of the Pistols who started that fight, that was kind of a hobby for them. There's a legendary episode where Sid smacked rock journalist Nick Kent with a chain, and John jumped off stage to join in the kicking.

    I honestly didn't think SV was ever straight enough, long enough to actually record the lyrics to a complete song

    You are correct. He seldom was. "My Way" was produced for the film "The Great Rock and Roll Swindle", and was Sid's high point as a solo performer. He never actually recorded an album, and it was fairly common to turn his amp off when they played live, simply because no bass was better than Sid's bass.

    BTW: Who are "Kevin Smith ... Jason Mewes"?

    Kevin Smith is the director of "Clerks", "Mallrats", "Dogma", "Chasing Amy", and most recently "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back". Jason Mewes is his profane man-child sidekick. They're better known and more easily recognized as their alter egos "Jay and Silent Bob". The deal is that (in character) Kevin almost never talks, and Jay never shuts up. Kevin, however is the one who writes all the dialogue, and Jay, well, there's a reason all his films have someone assigned to be "Mewes Wrangler". The front page of the website has a pretty fair depiction of how the work load is divided. Put it this way: Kevin Smith is currently in post-production on his 6th feature film, and is in pre-production on #7. Jason Mewes is in rehab trying to quit heroin. Get Well, Jay!
