Don't Want Your Love, Don't Want Your Money ...


Mo' better music is on tap for Cheek in 2007, both performing and attending. Bummin' that I missed Thomas Dolby last week in Atlanta. His tunes One of Our Submarines and The Key to Her Ferrari far surpass She Blinded Me with Science in my book. Had no idea that he played keyboard on Def Leppard's Pyromania album and contributed the synth sounds on Foreigner's 4 album for Urgent and Waiting for a Girl Like You.

Too bad my crack, hi-tech Pocket PC phone isn't one of the 500 million+ benefitting from his invention of polyphonic ringtone software. Thomas Dolby does not completely suck. If you don't catch one of his shows, keep an eye out for him as a speaker at a tech conference near you.

One Dolby fact that surpised me is that he produced a Joni Mitchell album, Dog Eat Dog. Talk about yer odd juxtaposition, eh?

Indeed odd. Another one: my band's covering Rick Derringer's tune Rock and Roll Hoochie Coo. I learned from a cab driver in Missouri that he also wrote Hang On Sloopy. Go figger.
