Dave Hill is a multilfaceted dork diamond. He's a great comic, storyteller, musician and ... and... well, more will be revealed. So I won't limit him with faint praise. Oh, and he has his own podcast which you will enjoy. We talk music, guitars and comedy and people and life. It is shown again how little pot I smoked in High School by what I don't know about Led Zepplin. Enjoy. I did.

    I accidentally put this in dropbox and Patrick fixed the audio before I could note it up so I let it stand as is!

    That's pretty much the tale of London I think. It's just anecdotes really. I'll save them for the next time someone talks London :)

    Thanks Todd!!

    Dave Davies, the lead guitarist and second songwriter/singer of the Kinks (after his elder brother Ray, who was the rhythm guitarist) "It wasn't called 'heavy metal' when I invented it." - when asked in the 80s if The Kinks were trying to play "heavy metal". I prefer the second hit, "All Day and All of the Night" (with the slight Caribbean influence) to the first one "You Really Got Me"...

    The Kinks were, in 1964, more or less the loudest band in the world...the Who took a lesson, and the Yardbirds took a bit of a lesson...the Yardbirds were slowly going through the transitions of having Eric Clapton, then Jeff Beck, then Jimmy Page as their lead guitarist...and when John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page decided to create a "New Yardbirds" after the Yardbirds broke up, Keith Moon supposedly suggested it would go over like the *world's largest* lead balloon...a lead zeppelin... (Hill's recollection doesn't quite catch the joke inherent)...

    --Charlie Rose not a good interviewer. He doesn't actually listen to the guests, and tends to step on their answers--not when they're going on and on, but because he's not paying sufficient attention. He killed every conversational joke Bill Cosby tried to make in what was almost certainly Cosby's last appearance, by not really getting them and then repeating them back to him.

    --I'd been wondering about your London sojourn...did you ever go into it in detail anywhere? Or does this description sum it?

    --Terry Gilliam from Minneapolis, if you hadn't dug that out...Gilliam worked with the guy who also founded MAD magazine, Harvey Kurtzman, at his early '60s magazine HELP!...Gilliam came in at HELP! just after Gloria Steinem left, as Kurtzman's assistant...the publisher was the guy who also published FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND and other dork attractors, such as VAMPIRELLA...Steinem was responsible for getting Woody Allen and Jonathan Winters and such to "act" in their fumetti (photo comics features) and appear in the cover shoots...while Gilliam helped with the fumetti starring this British guy over in NYC with a Fringe-esque show, John Cleese...Gilliam also helped Kurtzman with editorial chores with sf writers writing scripts for the comics, and such new young comics contributors as Robert Crumb...

    --I take it LibSyn is still fighting the links...
