This song mentions the Beach Boys, and I like Neil better!
Thanks for the new posts. Ah " Long May You Run " with Neil Young, a song that I like very much ( and Neil --- Long may you run also ).
Of course we all know what the boys in the band Lynyrd Skynyrd think of Neil Young (from Sweet Home Alabama)...
Well, I heard Mr. Young sing about her Well, I heard ol' Neil put her down Well, I hope Neil Young will remember A Southern man don't need him around anyhow
Actually, Neil's song Sedan Delivery was written for Lynyrd Skynyrd. They had plans to record it when they had their accident. The animosity between them was all hype.
Skynyrd's song was meant as an answer to Young's "Southern Man" song. There were absolutely no animosity between them- factly the Van Zants had great respect for Young and his music.
Yep, way back in '85.
A great song and huge guitars by a band that isn't on the radar. The Outlaws.
John Lennon said "Before Elvis there was nothing."
You certainly know a lot about " John Lennon " SPOT ON !
Another ass kicking song by the Outlaws.
Thanks again for all of the recent posts. Earlier today I heard the good news that the surviving members of The Beach Boys are getting together for a reunion tour ( to celebtate 50 years since they started their group ). A new album is to be released as well. So " Let's Go On A Surfing Safari " --- ( We can take our Old Woodie Wagon lol ).
Beach Boys are not ROCK.
No they were Surf and Cars. But It sounded good and they sold a hell of a lot of records. By the way most of the Beatles songs weren't Rock, it sounded good and they sold a hell of a lot of records.
They're sure as hell on my radar. There was a guy in my college dorm way back when who used to blast that song all the time. His name (believe it or not) was Max Lange.
Nice to see more posts here again, Thanks Everyone. Well I'm definitely a fan of the Beach Boys and they certainly had their own style, due in large part to the Songwriting of Brian Wilson. And when they do a lively song like " Surfin Safari " they have a very nice sound ( not that different from some of the 1950's Rock & Roll ). Another favourite of mine that may be a bit hard to classify is Fats Domino. He seems to play as sort of mixture of New Orleans Jazz and also Blues that is very nice to listen to ( eg: I'm Walking To New Orleans ). I've seen him on TV with his group and he had at least 3 Saxophone players and each Sax was a different size, made for a very nice sound.
Here is a little known Rock Cover of a great song by the Animals, "House of the Rising Sun" by Frijid Pink.
lol...I actually had an album by Frijid Pink. Or really I should say I had the record with the sleeve (the cover had apparently been shed long before).

It was close enough for them to get sued by Chuck Berry.
I remember hearing that cover on the radio a couple of times in the early 70's and then it disappeared. Way to go youtube.
Beatles = Kasparov
Stones = Gelfand
Syd Barrett = Ivanchuk
