Jeff Beck performing the Beatles

All you need to know, really.


  1. So where's the jinteresting crowd? I know, there are six of me, but even I don't think I'm all that fun. But I do enjoy the cool dark place, Jeff Back, and the handsome substitute Bartender.

    I was once a bartender you know. So I respect and admire the skill of the handsome ape behind the bar.

  2. I read the news today, oh boy

    Jan 17th, 1967:

    "4000 holes in the road of Blackburn Lancashire"

    "Twenty-sixth of a hole per person," says the Daily News:

    "If Blackburn is typical then there are over two million holes in Britain's roads and 300 000 in London."

    I saw a film today oh, boy
    The U.S. army had just won the war...


    Condoleezza Rice's goodwill trip to England hits rock bottom when she fails to get a famous Beatles reference.... Rice, a classically trained pianist and student of the great composers, has said she is a Beatles fan. But she looks blank during a stopover in British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw's hometown of Blackburn, when a British reporter refered to the "4,000 holes in Blackburn, Lancashire." Straw jumps in to explain that the line was from the classic 1967 Beatles song "A Day in the Life," on their album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."...

    The reporter asks Rice to sing a few bars. She means the part about the 4,000 holes. "But Rice, in over her head in Beatles trivia and looking sorry she had gotten into the whole thing, woodenly sings the title "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band"...

    A crowd of people turned away
    But i just had to look
    Having read the book

    Later, at a press conference, asked to name some of the "thousands" of mistakes she had said the U.S. made in Iraq, Rice replied: "First of all, I meant it figuratively, not literally. Let me be very clear about that. I wasn't sitting around counting. The point I was making to the questioner... is that, of course, if you've ever made decisions, you've undoubtedly made mistakes.

    It's the same old thing as yesterday
