Slacker Thursday

Oy gevalt. I had planned to put up a clue to an unusually droll Weekend Listomania today, but between the usual pre-Holidays hoo-hah, some time consuming errands for my maternal unit and just general disorganization I have realized that there's no way I can get it all together by tomorrow.

As a mea culpa, then, and speaking as we were yesterday of Jim Henson's Beatles Babies the possible supergroup consisting of Sean Lennon, James McCartney, Dhani Harrison and Zak Starkey, here's a tantalizing glimpse of what such an ensemble might sound like.

From a John Lennon tribute concert of a few years back, it's Sean -- with Rufus Wainwright and Moby (of all people) with a truly spine-tingling live version of Dad's "This Boy.

And a tip of the Hatlo Hat to our bud Sal Nunziato, who had this in his archive.

Maybe Julian will get a cameo, or get to sing a Harmony with Sean on their remake of "One After 909", "In Spite Of All The Danger".

I wonder if Yoko will bankroll this project?

Hey Steve, I ran into Ray Crabtree yesterday! Ray and I became friends when his son and my eldest daughter were friends in preschool. He sends his admiration and told me stories of your support for the band. I wish you could have seen his big smile when I brought you up!

I was out with my triplets so I introduced him to them then took them home and played a couple of cuts while showing them Ray's pic on the albums. They felt famous!

And Ray is not big and fat now like me and Bill Lloyd. Damn him! 8)

He's a great guy, as were the rest of the band.

When you run into him again, tell him that the Floor Models -- my 80s band, who had the perilous but ultimately enjoyable job of opening for the White Animals when they played NYC for the first time -- is going to be releasing a compilation CD this summer. Sort of like the WA's Nights in Babylon, except nothing on it has ever been released before.

Done and done.

Never got into Julian's solo career but if this thing happens I'll buy one of his albums out of pure spite.

Yoko bankrolling would be the kiss of death.
