I don't know about that one. . .

Cat Power - the Covers Album is absolutely beautiful.

How about when your band's only number one hits over a 30 year career have come from movie soundtracks?

Love it!

One thing though, even if a lot of the above rules apply to Rick Springfield. . .

I hope he never gives it up!! I love that man!

There I said, let the ridicule begin.

Real quote from John Cougar Mellencamp concert at Castle Farms, Charlevoix, MI circa 1983:

"We wanna hear you! This ain't no Rick f#@%in Springfield show."

Give me Rick hunched over John, his face clenched and red, sweat dripping from his temples. Give me that. Give me a real 80s reunion.

Hey, I was at that John Cougar show at Castle Farms! Only I was really fucked up...I blacked out just before Heart took the stage. Then I was suddenly at the airport bar.

Good times...

here is the equation:

if age + waist size + ((ex-wives + kids)x2) - number of decent albums in the last fifth of your career = >90, then its time to give up.
