||Rock Solid scandal!
During episode 005 Pat mistakenly said that "I Don't Want To Talk About It" was a cover of a Cat Steven's song, but the song he meant to play was "The First Cut Is The Deepest."
This earns Pat a
||Gary shares the most rock n roll moment of his life.
While working as a teenage DJ at the Aloha Roller Palace, Gary was asked by a customer to play "Like A Virgin" by Madonna. Though he knew that this was STRICTLY AGAINST THE RULES he decided to lock the DJ booth and play the record. This made him a hero to the skaters and a persona non grata with his (soon to be former) boss, who told him to "Turn in your lei!"
||Gary tells us that Billboard magazine called this one of the albums of the year. Fresh as a Daisy
by Emitt Rhodes ("Fresh as a Daisy"). In 2009 a documentary on Emitt was released called "The One Man Beatles."
||Pat, to no one's surprise, shares a gem from Cheap Trick. Right after the release of their 1997 self-titled album (also called the Dead Ant album) their record label went bankrupt. Without a record label to promote it, it fell off the radar. ("Say Goodbye" & "Anytime")
||When Gary was a mailman he was delivering mail to a record store that was hosting Cheap Trick! He had them sign his pepper spray.
||Gary: During a time when record labels were trying to find the next Green Day, Reprise Records decided to sign another punk pop power trio named The Muffs. They put out Blonder and Blonder. ("Agony")
||Pat: In 2007 Rooney put out the under appreciated Calling the World ("Paralyze").
||Gary: In 2000 the much-sought producer
Jon Brion put out the album Meaningless ("Meaningless").
||Rock Solid's first in-studio guest! Pat found Kathleen Wilhoite's album one day while looking through the record bins. He recognized Kathleen from her action work. He decided to give it a try. Now he and his wife Pilar love this album! The often give it as gifts and play it during parties.
||Kathleen plays "Wish We Never Met"
||Kathleen wrote that song after a long line of dating "bottom feeders and amoebas." Gary: "Your pain, our gain."
||Gary: Daniel Johnston, the bipolar and schizophrenic musician, had his songs covered by his crush Kathy McCarty on her album Dead Dog's Eyeball ("Museum of Love").
||Pat: Stones fan don't seem to like Mick Jaggar's solo stuff, but Pat thinks his 1993 effort Wandering Spirit is great ("Wired All Night" and "Evening Gown")
||Kathleen tells stories about meeting George Thoroughgood, Jeff Healey, Sam Elliot, John Doe and acting in Roadhouse (there were Playboy bunnies, guns and free flowing beer the whole time).|
"Was Sam Elliot's mustache friendly?'"
"It had its own trailer!"
- Gary & Pat
||Pat: In 1998 The Knack put out their comeback album called Zoom. Pat considers this their best album. ("Poppa's Dead")|
||In 1987 Gary studied this album like the Talmud: Lolita Nation by Game Theory ("Slip" and "Chardonnay").|
||Scott Miller, the genius behind Game Theory wrote a book titled Music: What Happened? It covers music between 1957 and 2009 and writes about his favorite music for each year.|
||Contest! Gary gives away a copy of the book.|
