Rock Back Pages podcast featuring BBD and a Bill interview from '78.
Mentions Roy Thomas Baker setting the studio curtains alight (right at the end of the cast) during the Futurama sessions :shock: :lol:


Ne plus envisager l'art comme une distraction,
mais comme une sacer..doh..ce !

Thanks, Geetar .

Neat podcast .

Bill sounds as calm, cool and collected as ever .

Interesting to hear Barney Hoskyns speaking . What sort of voice is that ? It reminds of the vocal equivalent of a yo-yo, at least at the end of the sentences, stretching those words out .

Did enjoy reading this book of Barney's in the 1990s, while living in Los Angeles, and found it entertaining, easy-to-read and I guess another word to describe it would be useful ...


Not the cover art I remember .

Strange to hear the imitation of the Yorkshire accent but funny because to me Bill's not got a particularly broad one . Wouldn't have noticed that way he said 'soda pop' ...

Neither of these people -- Mark Pringle nor Barney Hoskyns -- seem to be actual listeners of Bill's music nor do they seem to actually get it but they've got an intuitive understanding of it, somehow or other, and are articulate [of course] about Bill and his music, especially for non-listeners . :mrgreen:

I find myself in agreement with Mark and Barney about Wu Tang Clan . They were the last of the surrealist / weirdo Hip Hop but by the time of the era of WTC, I didn't want any more of it . Where's British Hip-Hop ? Does it exist ? You sure do love US Hip-Hop .

Agreed on everything they've got to say about David Bowie and what 'Heathen' meant to us who were hoping for something like it was and is .

Ricky Lee Jones : We heard "Chuck E's In Love" a bit too much on radio but it's a good song, interesting beat and delivery . Nothing marching-band Rock 'N Roll music about it at all, not Blues, C&W, Reggae or Ska, either . Maybe it's the best E.Z. Rock . E.Z. Rock + Soul / Ballad / Folk ? It was always sort of a relief when it was played on AM radio . There was a sense of "God, not that one again" but it never made me cringe . I remember buying that eponymous release of hers .

Funny to hear all that stuff about Little Feat . Always found FT irresistible . Barney's such a fan . I guess Little Feat blew away The Doobie Brothers at The Rainbow the way Be-Bop Deluxe blew away Ted Nugent ?

Bobby "Blue" Bland ... Wonder what Bill thinks of B"B"B .
