I won't say this of many of the cuts on Brian Wilson's SMiLE but the original recording the Beach Boys did of "Mrs. O'Leary's Cow" was better. I don't like this arrangement (the keyboards, etc.).

Sweet! Neil's one of the best.

I saw Rush back in 1991 for Roll the Bones tour. Excellent concert.

Not really a Rush fan, but liked Neil's "standing on the shoulders of giants" remark in a Modern Drummer (I think it was) interview years ago.

I do like the song about the car, though.

Motorhead nominated for a Grammy?!? Isn't that one of the seven signs of the Apocolypse?

Motorhead has been nominated a few times before actually. I remember seeing Lemmy in the crowd in the late 90s...funny as hell..so out of place.

Dead men can't celebrate winning.

Honor people when they are alive.

Charles Schultz was given a medal of honor post-humously.

Triumph The Insult Dog almost sparked an internalional incident when he insulted/lampooned Quebec.

I saw it the first time around and can tell you it was still funny when I saw the rerun.
