 LITTLE STEVEN'S UNDERGROUND GARAGE
 Presents
 THE ROLLING ROCK AND ROLL SHOW
 featuring "The Shadows of Knight" and "The Charms"!
 
 Sunday
 Oct 22, 2006    
 
 I'm stoked about this one... Hopefully Clem Burke will be on drums for this one, although they have great substitute drummers for him.  Their record that came out a couple years is great in the vein of their early records before the Pink Suits and MTV.

I went to Little Steven's website, and none of the future shows are there.  It's annoying...

Missed Five Masaratis, Woggles put on an entertaining little set, took a red room break that lasted longer than planned and ended up missing Fleshtones, Mooney Suzuki were ridiculously loud and all their songs sound the same, Zombies were horrible and amazing at the same time.  Colin can still sing, and for a few moments, the Zombies songs we know and love sounded great.  Unfortunately he was the only person up there with any dignity and class.  The ridiculously dressed mustachioed Argent wanked out proggy bloated keyboard solo after keyboard solo complete with God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen riffs (I shit you not) and lifting his leg up to play with his heel.  These were not just on the Argent songs, which had no business being played at this show anyway, but he completely butchered a fair number of classic Zombie tunes as well.  He also had to make it known that he wrote Time of The Season, not Colin, and was going to win some award for it when he got back to the UK.  I got the vibe that he was annoyed people were looking at Colin during the songs and not him.  I finally walked out during the Van Halen wannabe guitar solo by whatever jackass hired gun studio musician they had on tour (albeit, amazingly talented, but that was exactly the problem).  I saw Ian Svenonius on the way out and made him promise not to add 10 min keyboard jazz odysseys to his 30 yr anniversary Make-Up show.

Did he not look odd in that shirt??  He had "old guy who works out" man boobs that were damn near B cups.  
 
 He was a bit too much for me as well.  Lots of self-congratulations going on.

The last time I saw the Zombies, Argent had man-tities. I thought he was in the process of becoming a woman. He looked really odd.

Ah!  Yes!  I forgot to mention the boobs.  It could have been my imagination, but I swear I saw Colin looking at him in disgust a few times.

Me and my friends joked that Argent looked like John Holmes.  In fact, his whole persona was very 70's porn star-ish.  Not a bad porn star name either....Rod Argent.
 
 We also agreed that Colin will look like Mr. Burns from the Simpsons in 20 or 30 year's time.
 
 Cale pretty much nailed it though.  Very wanky most of the time, except for a few untouched classics.
