Late Late Show w. Craig Ferguson

Well that was kind of insanely good.
113 people in the crowd and the band, playing then interview.
Well done.

.. and Steve really does have the flu.

Got in.
Band played first then stage cleared and Ferguson did his monologue.
Then bit behind desk.
John and Steve then came out. ( They originally said they would be on talking last )
Then Joe Theisman.
Then recorded the intro to the Pistols with the Kenneth Branagh bit ( He was only on tape from a previous appearrance ) and the "Thanks and Good Night" which of course was in relation to a song finished an hour or so before :-)
After they were to use Steve in an ESPN-UK sketch but he was obviously too sick so they used Joe instead.
All filmed out of sequence but great to be so close to the band playing.

( I was the one with the ridiculous beard in the row where my buddy got the lap dance for throwing candy at the warm up guy)


Last Halloween

.. Hey Its Shovel.. ah I miss those days.

Cop Rock Jury

2 + 1 police , 2 idiots/Dodgy Art dealers

Anonymous Paul
Eddie Main

Kelly (sp?) arrived later

Sex Pistols last night

Nice to know all the Indie DJs got to go. Way to rub it in our faces.
And some idiot sneaked in and hit lydon with a drink.

Reuters Link

"The combustible singer was in cheerily sarcastic form for much of the night. When a young woman bounded onto the knee-high stage and hugged guitarist Steve Jones, 52, in the middle of a song, Lydon quipped: "Steve Jones always gets the fat ones!" "

The band first reunited in 1996 and then again in 2002 and 2003. Lydon and Jones live in Los Angeles, the others in London. Jones has perhaps the highest profile of the lot, hosting a popular Los Angeles midday radio show.

Go Team and Kate Hudson

Guests today.

Almost got Kate to sing but she liked the "bum bumming along" instead :-)

Steve "Arch your back , and go do the dishes"

.. in the bunker

So no chance of a Sex Pistols in the bunker show then ????

It has been a while and that would be a killer show.

L.A. Times today


Steve Jones

Sex Pistols guitarist; Indie 103.1 DJ

The Rainbow Bar & Grill is underappreciated because L.A.'s trendoids aren't aware of it, or they don't think it's cool enough. And that's what I like about it. You get Hollywood's sorry dregs -- which I much prefer to the BlackBerry brigade. 9015 W. Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood. (310) 278-4232


Guests today

"Bonafied lovin'"
"Mommas Boy"
"Dont Stop Believin'" ( Journey cover )
"Your Love" ( Outfield cover)

Maui day 3

"The Illustrious Paul Cook" it may have been "Lustrous" :-)

Tuesday, October 09, 2007


I think November looks like a month of repeats unless they do the show from the UK.
No early mornings like Maui but 8pm shows. A good chance for some interesting UK guests though.

Maui Day 2

Paul Cook still there

Local kid plays axe
and Local aquarium information lady, Liz Smith.

.. Another thing about these tickets.

Yes , i have spent another frustrating day trying to get in ahead of people who seem to think every song is a Sex Pistols song.
The nature of the way to win stops people from advertising and gaining listeners for Indie. Why would i tell people about the phone in for tickets to make more people phone in and so further reducing my chances ? I have noticed a lack of reporting about this promotion on a lot of Los Angeles blogs that are normally up on these things, maybe they are trying to preserve their chances of winning.

(UPDATE just checked. Nothing in , , all nothing about the Los Angeles show. ( even which had original London announcement has not mentioned the L.A. show ))

How are the people on the stream winning these call ins. It is on a delay isnt it. Wow !!
