"Best year for rock'n'roll? Let's list a few candidates, I'd say:
1951: Jackie Branston And His Delta Cats (Ike Turner) playing Rocket 88. Hell, it's the first rock'n'roll record ever?
1966: You mention…"
"I couldn't have said it better, regarding the Pleasant Dreams vs End of Century!
End of the Century may have benefited from an aura of legend (with the story of Phil Spector and his gun on the boys) but it is overrated. Pleasant Dreams is…"
"Best album: "Rocket to Russia"
Best analysis: a friend of mine told me (and I found it true) that the 20-year fight between Joey and Johnny helped to keep the spirit. Johnny obvisouly acted as a conservative asshole (not all conservatives…"
"Wow. They scarcely played together , anymore , at that point, when you could have seen both of them for $3 at CBGBs at one time..... The Ramones and Iggy played together, here , in '88 , and I later read they had'nt shared a bill…"
" I forgot to mention : Best show performed to 30 people: Arthur Brown.
Bigest letdown : Kingsmen , Larry and The Blue Notes , Jerry Lee Lewis (But, he was better , every time , after that , I saw him.).

Pandoras - Stop Pretending.
Link Wray - Live in 85.
Fleshtones - Fleshtones Vs. Reality.
Lithium Xmas -Aneurysm…"

"'66 , THE YEAR OF OUR LORD , THE BATMAN , IS HARD TO DISPUTE.
I played at this big Punk festival (Actually , I played at the after - party.) , commemorating the 30th Anniversary of Punk , in 2006. I told the remaining few that 1966 was…"
