OldFogey;579737 said:Sorry -- didn't overlook it. It's clever, but I'm not That's not it.
Runesmith;579981 said:This is harder than I thought. I'm going to go out on a whim here, and say that Weezer is the only group that has never recorded a Buddy Holly song? I know the Stones covered Not Fade Away, and Buddy obviously recorded his own songs, but I'm not sure about the Dead.
OldFogey;579996 said:Winner! (Close enough) Buddy, the Stones and the Dead all recorded Not Fade Away!Sorry. I didn't think it would be that hard -- for Dead Heads Not Fade Away is a standout, but I guess I forgot not that many people may know the Dead here. It's a great cover if you ever get the chance to check it out. From the second Live album, which is really good. The Dead up until about '75 or so were really a great band. It's what they did afterward that kind of dragged them down.

I'm a big fan of the Stones' version.And now for something completely different...Lester BangsLance BassLeonid BreschnevLenny BruceI have a feeling OldFogey will get this instantly.

OldFogey;580610 said:Umm, there's still one pending ^^^But -- New Amsterdams started as a solo project?
rwiggum;580617 said:Oops, sorry. I just thought I'd try my hand. And while yes, that's not what I had in mind. However, in retrospect it might just be a little bit obscure for most people.
OldFogey;580961 said:CAKE -- no Rob Pope?
rwiggum;580974 said:Bingo! Like I said, kind of obscure, eh?
