With Sadness, An Early Clue to the New Direction

I'm still kind of in shock over the Alex Chilton news.

However...given Pete Townshend's sage advice -- that rock 'n' roll won't help you forget your troubles, but it will help you to dance all over them -- please enjoy The Stooges, with Scott Thurston(!) and James Williamson(!!!), along with a whole bunch of other interesting people, at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction on Monday.



Words fail me over how fabulous this is, even if the video itself was made with somebody's cell phone in front of the TV. The official clip doesn't have an embed code, but here's the link to a high quality vid version.

In any case, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

Making fun of rich people?

Songs with "dog" in the title?

How about a popular topic of debate:

Bands that have not made the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as of yet that are both eligible and deserving of the honor?

'pet' sounds?

Billie Joe? You mean R and R Hall of Famer, the Piano Man? Where's Paul Shafer's All Star Band? Where's the Boss? You call that a jam without those folks?

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is, in fact, the clue.

But not in the way anybody's come up with yet...

The "WTF" look on Harold Ford's face is priceless.
