What does Kitty have to say?


 


Time machine concerts

If you could go back in time to see any defunct band, what would it be? According to a new survey, Americans would most like to see the Beatles, followed by Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, and Mozart. (More about the survey here). And while the Beatles would pretty much seem like a no-brainer, I agree with comedian Matt McCarthy who says he wouldn't want to see them because of all those annoying screaming girls. Like he says, he would have to yell "they quit touring because of YOU!" Add to that the fact that their concerts were only 20 minutes long and the Beatles couldn't hear whether they were sucking or not,  because nobody had thought of stage monitors  yet..and you have some pretty good reasons for staying away from Beatles concerts (at least after they made it big). So who WOULD I like to see? I just happened to have this conversation with my boyfriend Mike the other day, who immediately answered "Hendrix." Yeah..I have to admit that would be pretty cool...although if I had seen him back in the day when he opened for the Monkees I probably would have been permanently scarred! I think it would have been pretty cool to see Janis Joplin..because from what I can tell from video her performances were always electric. Otis Redding was a helluva performer too, who could hold audiences in the palm of his hand. You know what? I think I'm going to bend the rules of this game a bit and just dial up "The Monterey Pop Festival" from 1967. Then I'd get to see Janis, Jimi, Otis...and the Who. And maybe I'd even get to meet Monkee Mickey Dolenz who was walking around stoned in an Indian headdress.

World's Worst iPod: Alice Cooper "You and Me"
Can a song be so horrible that it's actually awesome? Well, if that is possible, here is an example: Alice Cooper's emotional ballad "You and Me" from 1977. I'm not sure we could think up a more hideous lyric than "we shared a bed, some...
