Here's the thing about ubiquitous acronyms ...... much can go astray in interpreting them. Often this can lead to extreme confusion ...... even trauma.

Case in point ............ the above ........... when I first read it, I translated LP as Les Paul (guitar). Imagine my horror upon reading the next sentence " I'll "burn" it and send it to you if you like." Trauma! Indeed!

Fortunately, I now realize LP means Long Play (record) ........... a vestige of a (long) bygone era. I also realize you do not intend to burn the vinyl ..... but rather offer to render the music on a Compact Disc (CD acronymically speaking).

What!?!

You Surely musta heard their hit "I Love You More Today Than Yesterday"

"I don't remember what day it was
I didn't notice what time it was
All I know is that I fell in love with you
And if all my dreams come true
I'll be spending time with you

Every day's a new day in love with you
With each day comes a new way of loving you
Every time I kiss your lips my mind starts to wander
And if all my dreams come true
I'll be spending time with you

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But, darling, not as much as tomorrow

Tomorrow's date means springtime's just a day away
Cupid, we don't need ya now, be on your way
I thank the lord for love like ours that grows ever stronger
And I always will be true
I know you feel the same way too

Oh, I love you more today than yesterday
But not as much as tomorrow
I love you more today than yesterday
But only half as much as tomorrow"

I did'nt realize there was still any interest in musicians like these guys. This January I turned 58 so back in 1967 or 1968 I was living in South Florida as a high school junior. My very first concert at age 14 was The Doors at Dinner Key Auditorium. The one where Jim Morrison was arrested on stage. I remember seeing people there dressed in American flag robes, top hats and one guy carrying a lamb. The smell of pot was everywhere and new to me(almost).... I was 14. This was unlike anything I had ever seen before. It was during the sone "Touch Me" when he suddenly stopped the band and was cursing at the light crew, the security and the audience. All hell broke loose on stage after that. Concert: Over. Had my first joint maybe a few weeks before?? This was a big deal in Miami back then. They held a decency rally at the Orange Bowl hosted by Anita Bryant and Jackie Gleason and 35,000 kids showed up.

A few months later we had attended the Seminole Indian Music Festival....one thing I will never forget was the announcer gave a short wrap up after the band Quicksilver had played and before the Youngbloods were on....and then said....We have a guy here who was not scheduled to play tonight ( was a 3-day festival) and he wants to get his name spread around so he is going to play tonight for a little while. Let me introduce Johnny Winter. Once again, like nothing I have seen before. What great times and days they were. There were so many firsts in my life....whew....most of all...great music

Now that's a gross insult to John.

:) Well, when you think about it...in reality there has always been people throughout history with various levels of notariety and followers, for whatever reasons. In the case of people like this jesus charactor, and let us not forget the countless 'other' charactors claiming to be the messiah that history has shown us...not for just that time period, which there were others of course, but these claims, have been repeated thoughout many time periods, along the lines of nearly identical story-lines (as the Zietgiest films reveals).
John Lennon had his own set of fanatics and followers as-if he was a god-like charactor himself. So what we have in common here is at least a similar level of fanaticism...superstars, whether musicians, singer or actors are put up on pedestals and are seen as almost more than human. John, jesus - if really ever existed (and as a mere man of course) - ... and even my Hillary Swank all pooped/poop out of the same shoot :)
Well yeah the Jesus character was a plagiarism from earlier Egyptian gods. Horus for example

Anyway ... "He's not the Messiah he's a very naughty boy" : D :D :D

Very insightful, Steve. Amid all the "beatle burnings" that happened after John said what he said, there were at least a couple preachers who stood up and said, "He's right."

The "cult of personality" and its worship of celebrity IS the new religion

But Hillary Swank? Marisa Tomei can whip her ass, not only in acting, but boxing, too :lol:

The closest I got to seeing the Doors was visiting Jim's grave at Père-Lachaise in Paris... :|
