children of rock n roll

Dio // Rock n Roll Children // (original video) 1983

It was starting to rain
On the night that they cried forever
It was blinding with snow
On the night that they screamed goodbye
They were lost in the dark
And they never returned
Just like somebody slammed the door
On rock ‘n’ roll children
Alone again
Rock 'n’ roll children
Without a friend

anonymous asked:

Could you post landslide intros dedicated to or involving/mentioning Lindsey?

Hey anon, I’m not a Buckingham Nicks expert but I gathered some videos and quotes that are unforgettable. Now, compiling all the Lindsey mentions would require a lot of time and work because it’s not uncommon for Stevie to tell the story of how she wrote the song and Lindsey is usually mentioned. The “24 Karat Gold Tour” alone had many of those stories, there’s a great video here.

I need to dedicate this tonight to Lindsey, & he knows why – He’s my one true love for now & for always. It’s called Landslide.”
Rumours Tour - UCLA Oct. 4, 1977 (No video that I know of.)

This is a very simple song and I would like to dedicate it to Buckingham Nicks, because I hope that maybe someday he will find it in his heart to spend some time with me again and maybe do some more music.” - Behind The Mask Tour, Inglewood, 1990.  

And second of all, because this is a really special night - as you can see, we are filming you as we speak -, I want to make a special dedication tonight that I really haven’t made before. I want to dedicate this song to Lindsey because he taught me how to play the guitar that I used to write this song, he inspired this song, and I wrote this song about him. It’s called Landslide.” - Say You Will Tour, Boston, 2003.

We used to pretend it was written about him (her father). Of course it wasn’t but, it was actually written about him *points to Lindsey*, but we both loved my Dad so we gave him that one.” - Fleetwood Mac Live, Philadelphia, 2013. (Pictures)

But secondly I would like to dedicate this song to my band. I’d like to dedicate this song to Fleetwood Mac. And I don’t know if Lindsey can hear me. Can you hear me? So, okay, so I’m, tonight I’m going to dedicate Landslide to our band. So I’m really dedicating it to Fleetwood Mac and I’m also really dedicating it to you, Lindsey. For all the wonderful things that you have done for me. Teaching me the little pick that is in Landslide that I would never have known had it not been for you. And all the really wonderful music that you have brought into my life. And just for being a wonderful friend all these years. And, um, I just want you to know that even though we argue, the love is always still there.” - Fleetwood Mac Live, Amsterdam, 2013.

Lindsey and I have probably played this next song, since 1973, three million times. Every single time we have ever walked onstage since 1973, we have played this song, so just do the math. It seems to me that here in Nashville - I mean, think we’re more nervous about tonight than we were for Madison Square Garden or for The Forum. Um, I don’t know why but it’s something. And I wanted to say to him and to you that, you know, Lindsey and I, we put a record out called Buckingham Nicks and it started to sell across the south. It started to do really well in Birmingham, Alabama, and it started to actually simmer right when we were joining Fleetwood Mac.
And had we not had Fleetwood Mac - we would’ve just joined Fleetwood Mac - and we may very well have ended up here. And I think about that sometimes. It could’ve just as easily gone towards country music, country rock ’n’ roll music, as towards serious hard rock ’n’ roll music, which is what we did. We could’ve very well ended up here, living here, with fifteen children. And grandchildren. And been like these two little rock ’n’ roll people and ended up being country people. So I want to dedicate this song to Lindsey because without him, this song could never have been played because I could only play it once, and he took it and made it into the song that it is today. So thank you, Lindsey, for that.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express
[March 31st, 2017]

The induction of The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express is one that has truly been a long time coming. Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson are two professionals who have traveled the world for decades as one of the most over and well-received duos in professional wrestling. Both men were workhorses of their era, traveling from territory to territory and putting more miles on cars in a week that map companies could print in a month. The two could be cited as the innovators of the hot tag- a move where one wrestler takes the beating for most of the match (usually Ricky) and reaches to tag his partner in (usually Robert), who would come in and clean house to set the team up for victory. This formula would always work the crowd into a frenzy, seeing the pretty boy of the duo in harm’s way and coming unglued when it was time for Robert to kick some ass!

As a team, Ricky and Robert would become prominent in a number of top promotions, gathering various championships in the NWA territories and being featured in such federations as WCW, USWA, Smoky Mountain Wrestling, the AWA, the WWF, and even TNA for two separate runs. The feud that perhaps defined the duo stronger than any was their war with The Midnight Express (Dennis Condrey and Bobby Eaton) in the 1980s, but also their feud with The Heavenly Bodies (Jimmy Del Ray and Dr. Tom Prichard) in the 90s. As someone who grew up in Kentucky, it’s nearly impossible to meet an older wrestling fan who didn’t adore The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express in their heyday, and I’ve personally seen the twinkle that comes to an old woman’s eye when she recalls the days of rooting for Ricky and Robert. The affect they had on not just the southern region of the United States but everywhere they laced up their boots makes me turn up my nose at everyone who claims that the WWE Hall Of Fame is “a work” or isn’t worth investing in. If there’s ever been a duo or a set of wrestlers more deserving that hadn’t been inducted before this year’s ceremony, their existence is lost on me. I’m proud to have gotten to see the induction of such a great team, who’s literally been kicking ass longer than I’ve been alive. Hell, being from Louisville, there’s a good chance that some of my close friends growing up may be one of their illegitimate children!

mick jagger’s origin story and evolution has got to be one of my favorites, here was this kid named MIKE who was the son of a gym teacher, from a well-to-do family, always very bright in school and very well-mannered and polite, so off he goes to LSE to get a degree only then he runs into resident art college dropout keith (who he knew as a kid!! remember this!!) and they get involved w/ these bands and boy’s already out there shaking his skinny hips and oldham is all “mm no we’re gonna turn you into this dangerous, ~edgy~ frontman that makes mothers fear for their children’s safety and sanity in the name of rock n roll” and bc he’s the lead singer and keith is too shy and brian is too volatile to assume that target leader position, mick is all “….OK? :D” and thus

S/O

S/O to Gym Class:

Activewear is making a furious come back this season and Christ on a crutch, are we excited. So we’d like to shout out to our gym class heroes in teeny bopper movies over the years. Now let’s face it, the 70’s might very well be the golden girl mother of P.E. fashion. High-waisted track shorts paired with some regular tees and striped knee socks (alternatively we like thigh highs), giving you body-ody-ody and mile high legs. Remember, if you can see the rounds of your cheeks peeking out from your shorts, you’re doing it right. Here we have Carrie and those bad bullying mean girls, also from 1979, we have P.J. Soles and an outfit I have on hand for any occasion, the bodysuit and the the high-waisted white gym short. God bless. As we run right through the 80’s (because we assume everyone owns a spandex bodysuit and sweatbands for Olivia Newton-John-esque workouts), we come to the 90’s and here’s where gymnasium fashion gets wild. From Buffy the Vampire Slayer (movie), we’ve got bright bra tops and the emergence of the bike short in crazy prints matched with leggings and high ponies. And who could ever forget Clueless, the black and white babies of Beverly Hills yesteryear, remember, layering is key and bike shorts make your ass look fan-fucking-tastic. Accessories are a must in the 90’s and your socks must always match your outfit and come mid thigh, if you’re going to wear socks. Hair-wise high pigtails, and oooh, braids braids braids. As we come to the early 2000’s we meet with the meanest girls of them all, The Plastics. Now gym class in this generation wasn’t as high fashion, but baby tees, booty shorts and trainers in coordinating monochrome palettes just seem so right. Hair amazing and relaxed, and lip gloss is a must. You can’t be Queen Bee if you can’t look good when you saunter out of the locker room. Remember your icons of the past, children.

Lindsey and I have probably played this next song, since 1973, three million times. Every single time we have ever walked onstage since 1973, we have played this song, so just do the math. It seems to me that here in Nashville - I mean, I think we’re more nervous about tonight than we were for Madison Square Garden or for The Forum. Um, I don’t know why but it’s something. And I wanted to say to him and to you that, you know, Lindsey and I, we put a record out called Buckingham Nicks and it started to simmer across the south. It started to do really well in Birmingham, Alabama, and it started to actually simmer right when we were joining Fleetwood Mac.

And had we not had Fleetwood Mac - we would’ve just joined Fleetwood Mac - and we may very well have ended up here. And I think about that sometimes. It could’ve just as easily gone towards country music, country rock ’n’ roll music, as towards serious hard rock ’n’ roll music, which is what we did. We could’ve very well ended up here, living here, with fifteen children. And grandchildren. And been like these two little rock ’n’ roll people and ended up being country people. So I want to dedicate this song to Lindsey because without him, this song could never have been played because I could only play it once, and he took it and made it into the song that it is today. So thank you, Lindsey, for that.
