Some classic Peggy Lipton is never a bad thing.

Some minutiae that may or not be common knowledge - Peggy Lipton and Quincy Jones got together and made Rashida Jones, of ' The Office' and 'Parks and Recreation' fame.

Motley's first two albums are a couple of my alltime favorite records, but most of what came after that is a pile of meh, IMO. Still these guys packed the house for 30+ years, and Vince had a lot to do with that whether he could sing or not. I don't know any more than what is on Wikipedia about the guy personally but he was 1/4th of a group that did some great things in their arena of music.  There was a brief period when I was 15 when I thought Motley Crue, and Vince in particular, was one of the greatest things around. I wanted to dye my hair blonde and get some red leather pants. Thankfully I never did either.

While not a real big fan of Alice's music, he might be the one rocker who I'd most like to sit down with and have a conversation/discussion with about pretty much anything. And he seems like a super nice guy. He also supposedly hooked up with Raqeul Welch in the mid-70s which isn't bad at all.

I too have never heard of Alex Harvey but I will check him out.

As an aside, I drove out to South Dakota a number of years ago and stopped in Iowa at the Buddy Holly 'crash site' near Clear Lake. Basically, you hike about a mile down a fence row between two cornfields and there is this little shrine with a bunch of trinkets scattered around it by people who have visited. Was kind of a neat thing to see so many years after it happened.

Gotta think at least some of the angst was envy/jealousy. I doubt those 'old-timers' woulda been averse to a truckload of cash, and Green Day found a way to get theirs.
