    Default Let's go (to San Francisco)

    First, an iconic tune, as the appalling cliche has it:



    And now for Blitzkreig Pop's heart-felt tribute to the above, which features the entirely memorable line: "If you go to San Francisco...you will meet a lot of weirdos there."

    In short, everything you might hope for from a record first performed at the Speedway Hotel, Middlesbrough.

    "There are three sorts of conspiracy: by the people who complain, by the people who write, by the people who take action. There is nothing to fear from the first group, the two others are more dangerous; but the police have to be part of all three,"

    Speaking of Jools Holland I love this George Harrison cover with Sam Brown:

    "I think it would be a good idea." Mahatma Gandhi, when asked what he thought of Western civilization.

    The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to change it.
    Karl Marx.

    "If you go to San Francisco...you will meet a lot of weirdos there."
    "You're gonna meet a lot of devil people there"

    Devils? Got them, too.

    What we don't have anymore are great rocknroll bands putting The City on the map.

    The dot-com invasion in the late 90's and techie-influx this decade has made the town too expensive to attract new generations of musicians and artists, alas.

    Here's two great San Francisco bands from another era covering the Rolling Stones, and Dylan.
