Welcome back for another virtual crate-dig! This week: Did a romantic relationship between David Bowie & Mick Jagger inspire one of the best Stones ballads of all time? How did a bunch of bored kids help make a Gen X anthem? Also- concerts, for good or ill, that left a major mark on rock n’ roll.
This Week’s Menu
A Whole Lotta Teen Spirit: A bunch of kids in LA think they’re just showing up for giggles when they appear in a music video for a little known band called “Nirvana.” They ended up becoming Gen X icons instead.
The Right Concert, The Right Time: It’s been debated: Is Zeppelin or Rush the better band? Well, here’s a story of how they intersect more than you could think. They were in the right place at the right time, I’d say.
Alice Cooper Almost Gets Rock Banned from YYZ: An Alice Cooper show in Toronto almost gets hard rock banned from Toronto- and he didn’t even need to be there to make it happen. Talk about WRONG place, WRONG time.
Who the Hell is Angie?: The Rolling Stones “Angie” is one of their most popular songs, but who, or what, is it about? Angie Dickenson? A torrid love affair between David Bowie and Mick Jagger? German Chancellor Angela Merkel? We discuss the theories about the Stones’ most popular ballad.
The Smashing Pumpkins Smashed my Eardrums!: From the Liner Note Leftovers archives, we discuss the time the Smashing Pumpkins got sued for being “too loud.” Call this the WRONG place, WRONG time, part two.
Thanks for coming along once again! If you’ve got a story you wanna hear featured on Liner Note Leftovers, give me a shout at my day job 106.1 The Goat or email me at [email protected], I’d love to hear from you!
