My Grandad was a conductor!!!
Worked at the Cowley bus garage.
I mentioned Blakey earlier in the thread but have since realised he was a bus inspector.
I hate you Heston!

can Heston name more than five opera singers off the top of his head?
Pavarotti
Caruso
Carreras
Placido Domingo
Freddie Mercury
if you know those names there's no way you don't know Maria Callas.
What about the blind dude? Bocelli?
There's also Bryn Terfel, Renee Fleming, Renata Tebaldi, the list goes on for ages.
How could we have missed John McCormack, the greatest Irish tenor ever? And as all decent folk know, the paddys put the wops to shame at singing (but not cooking) ;)

To get back to Hoy's original post - Mick Jones has not only a very distinctive voice, but also, as Silent Majority once very eloquently pointed out, a very welcoming voice. And I love that, Murph. And I love that quality. So MJ's a weedy, white, Brit version of Otis Redding. I'll take it.

I heard two Bon Jovi songs on the radio today, Always and Wanted: Dead Or Alive. I have to say, Jon Bon Jovi's voice physically disgusts me.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.
