Best band name that you never heard of was a band I saw in NYC years ago:
"Norman Bates and the Showerheads"

I'm partial to the Grateful Dead or the Velvet Underground

Bonamassa also was brought under the wing of another GREAT (and some would argue THE BEST) guitar virtuoso, by the name of Danny Gatton.

Bonamassa at age 12...



Joe was able to play on stage with one of his heroes, Eric Clapton, at Royal Albert Hall in 2009, and you can see it in his face when Clapton walks on stage... Classic tune done by two greats...


Sounds like you know of what you speak, Gunny! I will have to check into both Joe and Danny Gatton! :thumbsup:

Liv Tyler was actually born Liv Rundgren to her Playboy Playmate mother. Liv was raised thinking Todd Rundgren, from Utopia and who wrote "Bang on a drum all day," was her father. Todd had been in an on-and-off relationship with Liv's mother for years, and had a brief stint with Steven Tyler. At that time Liv met Steven Tyler she was 8, she noticed similarities between her and Steven's other daughter Mia which prompted her to ask her mother, and thats when she found out who her real father was.

Three of the top five names on the Rollingstone Top 100 Guitarists were members of the Yardbirds (Clapton#2, Jimmy Page #3, and Jeff Beck #5).... When the Yardbirds broke up Jimmy Page had to play their remaining gigs, forming the New Yardbirds which would eventually become Led Zepplin.

Dark Side of the Moon stayed on the Billboard top 200 charts for 14 years.

Charles Manson recorded an album.

Neil Young arrived at Woodstock in 1969 with fellow musician Jimi Hendrix. When they realized that they had to travel several miles from the helicopter pad to the stage, they stole a pickup truck for the journey. Young calls the theft, "One of the high points of my life."

Waylon Jennings was Buddy Holly's bass player and at the last minute gave up his seat on the plane that killed Holly and other band mates.

Yes.. He also wrote knocking on heavens door covered by GnR.
Hendrix also played in Little Richards band before his solo career took off.

He was also a paratrooper. The first love of Keith Richard's life, Linda Keith, was wowed by Hendrix and introduced the band to him. She also stole an early recording of "Hey Joe" by the Leaves, and a left handed Strat from Keith and gave them to Jimi. It turned into Jimi's first real hit. "Ruby Tuesday" was about Linda Keith.

Damn it, Jim! Quit trying to interject the Stones into a thread about music that people actually give a chit about! :lol3:

Here's one for you. The stones only have two good songs. Name them.
