Prince to Give Ronnie Wood the Sheena Easton Treatment?

Here is something interesting:
Rolling Stones rocker RONNIE WOOD has been picked for a live duet with pop superstar PRINCE, according to his daughter. Leah Wood...claims he requested the rocker join him on stage at a recent gig in London. Unfortunately, Ronnie had to snub the offer due to pre-arranged travel commitments.... She says, "Prince called up my dad an hour before his show in Camden, and asked him to join him on stage. "I'm going to spike up his hair especially."
Prince's taste in proteges has certainly changed in his old age.

Guess we'll just have to settle for Joe Perry and Sanjaya which is the next best thing.

Caroline said...

I'd much rather like to see Janis Joplin, Curt Kobain, Jimmy Hendrix, or Michael Hutchence perform with Prince.

C.

Ian said...

If I had a say in this I'd prefer to see a live band as opposed to dead people. There are too many dead people.

Caroline said...

Well then, who would you like to see alongside Prince?

Ian said...

I like Cobain but why not a living member from Nirvana?

Caroline said...

AH yes the Foo Fighters!

Ian said...

Yes, the FOO FIGHTERS.......

Caroline said...

Do you agree that Dave Grohl could go solo?

Ian said...

A Foo Fighter. Why not? He almost went solo in the Stairway to Heaven song...

Anonymous said...

Oh mann, I love to here that song on my nokia. Game on World!

Anonymous said...

hear

Caroline said...

Foo Fighter and Stairway to Heaven?

Strongwater said...

Yeah! Great song!
Are you affraid of the end of the world, caroline?

Ian said...

He performed a humorous version on The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn, where he pretended to forget the lyrics.

Caroline said...

He forgot to tattoo the lyrics across his body then ;-)

Ian said...

maybe he did not want to have a bustle in his hedgerow. Or the number...

Caroline said...

I'd say DO be alarmed now

Ian said...

Indeed. Although the real lyrics are a definite yet mysterious sign as well.

Caroline said...

I always thought the lyrics were quite spiritual:

And as we wind on down the road, Our shadows taller than our soul. There walks a lady we all know, Who shines white light and wants to show. How everything still turns to gold

Ian said...

Absolutely. I always picture a Jacob's ladder listening to that verse.

Caroline said...

but no angels involved then?

Ian said...

And if you listen very hard, The tune will come to you at last. When all are one and one is all. To be a rock and not to roll. Talking about rock&roll - Did you know The Killer married a 13 year old girl?

I think Huey Lewis & The News is much better

Caroline said...

The Killer? From Louisiana?

Ian said...

The same...

Caroline said...

I think I know. GBoF?

Ian said...

Goodness gracious, thank you!

Caroline said...

Let me help you if she's shaking your nerves and rattling your brain.

Ian said...

I took a lucky shot but I got a ticket to The Spits for 14-06-2007

Caroline said...

Maybe I'll see you there then.

Ian said...

Wasn't it hard, mysterious and noisy again? Sean Wood in a graduation robe on stage. That stirs memories... When they played Tired & Lonely I thought I'd weep.

Caroline said...

Tired & Lonely was the only song I really felt. Yes, it was hard. A bit too hard for my taste. Witch Hunt made my blood run cold. I'm not such a punk lover I'm afraid. More into nicer stuff.

Ian said...

When they played No Place To Live, it was if the crowd was afraid somehow.

Caroline said...

Tuff News...

Ian said...

Reading your mind!

Hikari said...

Have you seen Erin Wood going outrageous on She Don't Kare?

Caroline said...

Hello, how are you?

Hikari said...

I'm fine thanks. I am normally more into Prince (not the AFKAP period) but I did like Broose Young's drunken vocals in Take Pleasure In Someone Else's Pain. He surely beats Tom Waits.

Ian said...

Heartattack and Vine!

Hikari said...

Waits is genuine, he said: "If Michael Jackson wants to work for Pepsi, why doesn't he just get himself a suit and an office in their headquarters and be done with it".

Ian said...

"I have adamantly and repeatedly refused this dubious honour."

Hikari said...

Which resulted in Beautiful Maladies and Night on Earth. My favourites. Can you imagine night on earth, the whole earth? Surreal!

Caroline said...

I always stick to Waits performing "What Keeps Mankind Alive?" from The
Threepenny Opera.

Hikari said...

According to Waits mankind is Lost in the Stars (The Music of Kurt Weill,
same opera I believe).

Hikari said...

Which resulted in Beautiful Maladies and Night on Earth. My favourites. Can you imagine night on earth, the whole earth? Surreal!

Ian said...

Caroline, wasn't your favourite Waits tour Real Gone?

Caroline said...

I considered Real Gone to be number one on my list but I thought women need to show more courage. So I'd choose One from the Heart, Ian!

Ian said...

Bear in mind that Tom Moon describes Waits's voice as a "broad-spectrum
assault weapon". "More courage" would be an understatement I'd say.

Caroline said...

Rest my case. "Goin' Out West" now.

Hikari said...

I know a "Short Cut(s)"

Ian said...

I suddenly remember the Tin Hat Trio: Waits appearing as a guest singer on
"Helium Reprise".

Hikari said...

Was that the same performance he did for Dead Man Walking?

Ian said...

No, Waits performed original compositions of "Fall of Troy" and "Walk Away" for that film's soundtrack.

Hikari said...

That was courageous of him. Not wanting to have "the dubious honour".

Ian said...

Tom Waits will always be genuine, just like you said. Fall of Troy was
amazingly good: "Now he'll have to find his own way home, boys - He'll have to find his own way home".

Hikari said...

"Out the door and through the woods, There is a world where nothing grows"

Ian said...

"But it's the same with men as with horses and dogs: Nothing wants to die".

Kill_Oui said...

Tom Waits was a really big star, years ago.
