Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm
patrick321:

I've been thinking how to phrase this but...that with the first notes of Pledging, my first thought was Harvey Keitel, is a good argument against using such a special record in a soundtrack.

David Shortell:

Hello, all. The late Nick Tosches knew some alternative allegations about Johnny Ace's death, but apparently his publishers' lawyers advised him not to put them in writing.

Probably sound advice David

It's true Will tSG but 8 (count 'em) tunes in that 1/3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm
Mike Sin:

I think Johnny Ace shooting himself in the head is not under debate — the whole “Russian roulette “ story was probably fabricated
Avatar 10:22pm
MOM WHIG:

The Harmonies on these is so Awesome!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm
Eric R:

now I'm wondering about the late great Johnny Ace's end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm
Will thee Sound Guy:

Hi David Shortell and Mike Sin!

Patrick321, one of the only ways to have a higher song count is to play hardcore speedmetal..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm
Eric R:

did we all grow up with an amusement park or something similar? For me it was Palisades Park.
Avatar 10:25pm
David Shortell:

Big Mama Thornton witnessed Johnny Ace's demise, but she died in 1984 so can't tell us nothin'.
Avatar 10:26pm
MOM WHIG:

Eric - We only Glen Echo here and Marshall Hall. Not as good as Palisades Park

Unfortunately written by Phil Spector

featuring Phil Spector. But...before he was totally insane, probably.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm
Mike Sin:

If Phil Spector is writing his first major hit sing based on an inscription on his father’s tombstone after his father’s suicide, a die was cast somewhere…

when we lived in San Francisco there was a show on KPOO (poor people's radio) called "Grinder's Grooveyard". Similar to Rama Lama Ding Dong, with a lot of 1953-1955 tunes.

Eric R:

medson, are you taking requests for future shows? If so, A Sunday Kind of Love, Lee Andrews and the Hearts
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm
