Lost Reflections
A place for me to ramble about stuff and all the musicians I love. If you want to look for it, I've got some stories I wrote buried in here.
Why I love Cheap Trick - 14
So, in 1985, the guys released Standing on the Edge, a great album in its own right. It's got "Tonight It's You" on it, virtually the only hit, as far as I know. That's all for 1985...

Today, I found out what Rick Nielsen says at the beginning of the "Dream Police" video. I was completely clueless about it before. Here's what he says, very fast mind you, : "In promulgating your esoteric cogitations and articulating your superficial sentimentalities, amicable, philosophical and psychological observations...beware of platitude misponderosities...Are we really the Dream Police?"

And my favorite quote by a cartoon character, said by Homer Simpson, "I prefer to listen to Cheap Trick."


Playlist-

"Rock n' Roll Tonight" (1990)
"One on One" (1982) - the song where "Reputation is a Fragile Thing" comes from.
"Yeah Yeah" (1997)
"On the Radio" (1978)
"Sleep Forever" (2009) - Oh, the beauty!
"Come on Come on Come on" (2006)


I just love Tom's face! He's like, "We go on? When!?" This was the first photo I really remember seeing of Cheap Trick. It cracked me up. I just love these guys.

I don't even know... XD


Aw

Hanging with Howard Stern.

Sleeveless in Florida. This was at a Tampa Bay Lightning Hockey game in 2011 the day after my birthday. I think it was on my birthday actually.

Tom loves his guitar.



Robin rocking the Lightning jersey.


"I want you to want...me!"

Tommy with his John Entwistle style bass guitar.


I think that's Comita...Ugh, Comita. And notice Rick's sweater. emotion_smilies/icon_awesomeface.gif
