« Too Good Not to Share: New York vs. Texas | Main | Word on the Street »

January 29, 2016



Always unaware, the refrain from "We Built This City" occasionally creeps into the cranium jukebox during walks around Cleveland.....but so does "My City Is Gone".

Off-Topic = Check out these amazing pics of vinyl junkie WANT Questlove's cave :

Gaylord Perry

I still have my mom's copy of Blows Against The Empire...I am spinning it in Paul's honor!


If I'm not mistaken...Jefferson Airplane did the playing on the roof in a busy city trick before The Beatles. The Fabs didn't do it in London until sometime later in 1969.

I've always wondered which street this was, but it's got to be somewhere in the early 50s between 5th and 6th since the (then) RCA buiding is directly behind them.

RIP Paul


Original J. Airplane girl singer Signe Anderson died on the same day...


They're on the roof of the Schuyler Hotel which was at 57 West 45th Street.
