RECOMMENDED PODCAST: BEATLES V. STONESfrom soundcheckradio
Check out this podcast from Soundcheck in WNYC: it’s terrific. Two teams debating the age-old conundrum of Beatles v. Stones. http://soundcheck.wnyc.org/story/smackdown-beatles-vs-rolling-stones-live/On Team Stones: Bill Janowitz from Buffalo Tom, and author of the 33 1/3 book on Exile, andNPR host Ophira Eisenberg
On Team Beatles: Mike Myers and his older brother Paul
Team Beatles makes the staggering error of at one point exclaiming, “At least nobody ever got stabbed during a Beatles song!”, and you can image who that led Team Stones right to. Listening to this on my morning run made life much more enjoyable in the dark!

If you don’t know it, you should also check out this tune by the band House Of Love: Beatles and the Stones

Killer new vinyl called GUILTY OF EVERYTHING by Philadelphia band NOTHING.

When Muddy Waters' “Mannish Boy” became a hit, black men in the South were not called men. No matter if he was seventy-nine years old, a black man in his home state of Mississippi was nothing but a “boy.” The song was an act of protest. (image: Muddy Waters performing with the Rolling Stones in 1981.

The AFGHAN WHIGS channel their inner High Plains Drifter with maybe a hint of Christine in the video for a track called “ALGIERS.”

Life and How To Live It by R.E.M. was inspired by the story of Brev Mekis, a schizophrenic who divided his house into 2 different dwellings. Each side had completely different furniture, clothes and even pets. This is the house in Athens that Brev lived in.
From this story here, it turns out that Vic Chestnutt lived there later on.
Michael Stipe’s live intro to the song went something like this:

He took his house and he built a wall right in the middle of the house. He had an apartment on one side with clothes, furniture, food, books, a radio. He had an apartment on the other side. Different clothes, different books, different furniture, different food. TV set. 
He’d live on this side for a while, until he got tired of it. He’d put his book down, take his clothes off, walk over to this side and he’d live over here for a while until he got tired of it. And he’d flip-flop to this side and live over here for a while until he got tired of it, and he did this back and forth until he died. After he died, they went in to clean out the house so they could rent it out to college students. These people went back to the closet in the very back of this apartment, and they opened the door and the whole closet was filled up with these books. And each book was exactly the same, and this man had written these books, and had them all published, and all stacked his closet. He’d never sold one, or given one away. And the name of the book was Life and How to Live It.
