trying to catch a deluge in a paper cup

is that not an excellent lyric? this weekend we've had our radio tuned to the local classic rock station because they're doing this "30 years in 30 days" thing, and i am a total whore for 80s music. saturday was 1983, sunday was '84, monday was '85 and today is '86. holy fuck, 1986 was TWENTY YEARS AGO. so yeah, good and bad 80s music, it doesn't matter. i love it. and they've definitely been playing the good AND the bad. i've heard john cougar mellencamp, depeche mode, thompson twins, bruce springsteen, motley crue, new order, fabulous thunderbirds, huey lewis, RUN-DMC, billy idol, peter gabriel, jefferson starship (or was it just starship at that point?), general public, heart, echo and the bunnymen, crowded house. man, these songs really take me back. and now i'm getting misty-eyed 'cause they're talking about the space shuttle explosion. wait, frank zappa was on miami vice?? oh god, and i remember the monkees revival. yikes. good times, folks. i almost want to dig out my big, baggy cure tee-shirt and black leggings!

Good listening for sure!!

Jefferson sued Jefferson Starship to have his removed since he was no longer in the band. Thus the name change to Starship.

Mindless trivia...no wonder my brain shorts out every once in a while. I hold too much mindless trivia in there. OY

He had is NAME removed, nothing else, just his name and he's still a man, as far as I know. hehe

Sorry 'bout that.
