Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:13pm efd:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:13pm Phillippe Bastille:

Wow!!! we hardly ever get to hear Atomic Rooster!!

rooster attack!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/4/19 9:21pm Dave in SoDak:

The guitar tone and riffs in general of Stan Bush reminded me of the Producers. The band, not the Broadway sensation... The Producers. What ever happened to those guys? I mean, "She Shelia" and "What's He Got" were staples in high school - both with drama jocks, band nerds, football and basketball homecoming king nominees - It was sort of a universal cool thing - along with the cheerleaders practicing routines for the GoGos - this was 1982. Good memories.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:23pm Figgsrock:

Damn EFD, you're getting serious (with the 1987 AOR deep cut)!
  Wed. 9/4/19 9:24pm Irving:

I knew a girl named Jane once!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/4/19 9:28pm Dave in SoDak:

john astley sounds nothing like rick astley, but jon astley does sound like the vocal in the song in "better off dead" where jon cusack pulls out a sax in the crappy fast food joint. another great memory - that movie, anyway.
  Wed. 9/4/19 9:28pm CC:

After all...you are a star!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:30pm Figgsrock:

Jon and Rick are *not* related. But, at one point, Jon was brother-in-law of Pete Townshend. (He handled much of the remastering of The Who catalog.)
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 9/4/19 9:31pm javakid:

one other Jon Astley note - that's Slowhand on the guitar solo.
  Wed. 9/4/19 9:32pm Chuck:

In Hearing Of... Atomic Rooster... that's the studio album!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:34pm Figgsrock:

Oh man, that Y&T reference made me think of that April Fool's show from a few years ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:36pm efd:

that was a fun show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:37pm Figgsrock:

I have looked at the calendar for next April, and guess what day of the week April 1st falls on in 2020....

wait, seriously?? That seems too soon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/4/19 9:39pm listener 126464:

this a #1 hit
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:40pm Figgsrock:

I know! I guess the extra days in 2016 and 2020 are the reason it's around again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:40pm Figgsrock:

Also, this Exbats song is excellent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:40pm efd:

@126464 I agree!

backy-back back!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:41pm Phillippe Bastille:

Ok, really weird Google results. When I Googled "astley", I got pages and pages of Rick Astley hits, other various Astleys like a vineyard and apartment building, but NO Jon Astleys.

  Wed. 9/4/19 9:55pm Joyride:

For a moment the world was better place...Thinking Rick and Jon Ashley were related was great...It was like like radio yesteryear...assumptions are far more interesting than the boring internet...Love your comments ...I've become a huge fan of yours because of Rick
Astley...never gonna give you up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/4/19 9:57pm Dave in SoDak:

Never gonna let you down.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:58pm Phillippe Bastille:

Never gonna figure it out...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 9:58pm efd:

I guess I kind of Jon-rolled you with that suggestion that they were related.
  Wed. 9/4/19 10:05pm Jeremy:

I suppose that we are all confronted by the reality of our own mortality!?!

Lloyd is one of my all-time favs. got the chance to play some pool w/ him in his drinkin' days in Soho at Milady's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 10:20pm efd:

had him on the show back in 2014 or so, he played a few songs live in the studio on an acoustic guitar. It was kind of mind-blowing.
