My guess and I think it’s a good guess would be Alvin Lee of Ten Years After. He recently passed :cry: :cry: :cry: and really makes a nasty face when he plays. 8-)ImageImage

I am asleep at the wheel. Indeed it was Alvin Lee. Sorry to bog the thread down.

If you ever saw him, he moved very little. At best, he would tap his foot during an encore of something such as "Baby, Won't You Let Me Rock and Roll You?"

He let all of his pent-up emotions release through his face. The Woodstock segment gives you a pretty good idea. Creem Magazine always had great quotes and descriptors such as this.

My two favorites:

from an article by the legendary lester Bangs about Lou Reed, this headline:

WANTED: DEAD OR ALIVE (WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?)

And the greatest letter to the editor of all time:

"Is it true that Jim Dandy really stuffs?"

Well, I fouled this up with my delay. My apology. I will try to keep up to date!

Let's try this one:

What guitar player did the Stones consider before choosing Mick Taylor?

OK, I really suck. Roy Buchanan was courted by the Sontes, but neither end pursued it very far. Maybe he'd still be here.



NEXT ONE

Why did Charles Mingus name an album MINGUS AH UM?


C'mon, somebody HAS to know this one. (I taught this class for a year in **addition** to math!)

Best Guess I found -
http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f7/meaning-ah-um-17882/ scroll down a bit...

"" No one else here took Latin in school?

Geez...

Well from what I remember (and I'm 99% certain of this), it's indeed a pun on a Latin grammatical concept.

Mingus is a "Latin-esque"-sounding name by virtue of the "-us" at the end... you know, like E Pluribus Unim ("Out of many, one."). Or Pastorius, for that matter (Latin for "shepherd," I believe).

So... what it looks like Charles did, was make up an imaginary Latin word (adj. in this case) -- Mingus. In Latin, that's the masculine form of the adjective. The feminine form would be "Minga" and the neuter form would be "Mingum".

So... in a Latin textbook, if "Mingus" were a real adjective, you'd see it listed like so:

Adj. -- Mingus, -a, -um.

Then, he took it, Anglicized it, and made it sound like someone mumbling.

Does that make sense? It's just a silly pun... but I would bet my next paycheck you'd never see anything that deep on a boyband title. ""

If I had posted my answer, it would be word for word what Volkeman just wrote, including his asides and observations.

Spot on, brother!

You're up. For everyone else, a pop quiz:

Was my question:

[A] better than a math joke
[B] worse than a math joke OR
[C] just as bad as a math joke

Please hand in your answers on the way out.

Two of my favorite current musical names are not Latin, but I do find them both amusing. I know nothing about eith band. I just like saying the names.

UH HUH HER

THE WHY I OUGHTAS

OK, I SWEAR there was a band named that. Maybe they were local or something. Now I can't find any reference to them at all. That's my story, and I'm stuck with it.
