Bob's 4 Rules Of Rock   5 comments

I’d been good to myself all of last week but I took my therapist’s advice and got really good and fucked upon Saturday night. On Sunday Bob was on the wagon but he took one look at me on Sunday morning and took me to the pub for breakfast out of the sheer goodness of his heart and the evil shit that his liver has to putup with. He sat me down and explained to me Bob’s 4 Rules Of Rock, which are all patently nonsense and yet somehow have something of the Socratic about them. The Rules are:

1. The Beatles didn’t do anything worth a damn until Revolver.
2. If you were on a desert island you’d be better off having all the Stones albums than The Beatles albums.
3. If The Who had all died on their ’71 tour no-one should be sad.
4. At any given point you are better off listening to Led Zep than any of the above bands.

Then two English brothers turned up with two Polish sisters, for the second time in 24 hours. The elder brother has been told to wear jeans when he turns up for work at Morgan Stanley next week. We were talking about heartbreak and death and that Cher song came on the jukebox and the younger brother revealed that he was working in HMV when Believe was at Number One and when people would ask for that Cher song he would pull a blank face and ask them to sing it.

OK, gotta go.

  1. yeah, Id have to agree with taking the Stones to the island simply on the basis of more records, otherwise.

  2. Of course you’d become a sort of faux blues aficianado singing about roosters and shit. There’s only ever two good songs on a Stones album with a couple of exceptions: Some Girls is the only one I can think of at the moment. Their last decent record.

  3. Beggars Banquet is probably my favourite. Exile On Main Street is not too shabby.

  4. Yeah, keep wanting to check out Exile. Could never get my hands on a copy as a kid when I was well into them, and Of course it goes without saying Satanic Majestys request was my favourite back then, amd Monkey man was my fave track. Probably still is.

    the anux is exciting for you
  5. It’s the hipster, rocker’s choice. Part of the whole Keef legend.
