  •  Evenin' joe. Was Clapton's "Hideaway" better, (5+ / 0-)

    or is it just that it's been lodged in my brain for so many years? Ya' gotta' help me stay up again tonight, joe. PBS is showing Mick & Keef's Rock n' Roll Circus at 9:30. First time it's been shown on US TV if I'm not mistaken. Thanks for the link on the Walton's, I'll share it with my buddy Dave over at Blog For Arizona.

      as far as i'm concerned, there was only one guy whose version of hideaway was clearly superior - freddie king:

      oh, and the rock and roll circus is probably worth staying awake for, it's got some kinda fun, odd stuff in it if i'm remembering correctly.

        The Stones don't like it because, well, they sucked. Brian was so far gone by then that all he could do was shake maracas and Sympathy ... requires two guitars. Keith couldn't play both parts himself. I guess they didn't want to hurt Jones' feelings, but they could have asked Lennon or Townshend to play the easy chord progression. I think you're right about Hideaway.
