Final question: Which Beatle released Ringo, Ringo the 4th and Ringo's Rotograuve?

Clue: He also released Ringorama and Ringo 2012, and regularly tours with his All Starr Band as Ringo and his All Starr Band.

That's nonsense really

Joy Division had a small cult following and had pretty much no commercial success at all

It's well known that New Order started in 1980 because Joy Division etc etc... But not everyone fully appreciates how fearless, awesome and brave this move was. They turned their back on JD ONCE AND FOR ALL - put a DEFINITIVE full stop on JD... And this is the message that continues to inspire: Forget the past, even as important as JD. Look ahead, look on, NEVER look back. Hence:
First single JD covers 7", 12", rereleased 12", Record Day JD versions rerelease
Still JD compilation
Rereleased JD first Peel Session 12" 1, Peel session 2, comiled into Peel Sessions LP, rereleased LP in new cover, included in Complete BBC Sessions
Atmosphere 88, Substance 88
London reissues 93
93's 'NOSory' DVD, Radio 1 and MTV documentaries include JD
Love Will Tear Us Apart - 95, Permanent: Best of JD 95
Heart and Soul box set 97
Remastered Preston live, Bains Douches live, Fractured Box (Preston live and Bains Douches live), Re Fractured Box (including Preston live, Les Bains Douches live so Fractured Box)
CD remastered reissues
JD DVD interviews
Control OST
The Best Of 2008
Total: From JD to NO
+ / - singles box set
CD remastered reissues remastered on vinyl
NO played JD sporadically through the 80s and since 98 every gig has included at least three JD tracks (the Peel gig had nothing else).
Since 2009 Hook has toured JD all over the world and written his 'autobiography' only on JD...
It's a potent message: Look to the future guys. Never look back, and certainly don't make a millipenny out of it. RESPECT!

PS The great thing about Elvis is he never let his standards drop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGTdsCEKvEY

Last months the most listened to album is Smyslovye Gallyutsinatsii 2016, with complicated arrangements, thought out harmonies it is a n1 for me today. (Though Bowie, Zeppelin, Sabbath, DP... are n1s for life). All 17 songs are excellent https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_4LencSDKc&list=OLAK5uy_le7iJKG6bm8V9HkDmL5SNMXCOaVXra3nQ&index=6 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3hEy8l1fpM&list=OLAK5uy_le7iJKG6bm8V9HkDmL5SNMXCOaVXra3nQ&index=11 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XlL4PCpCok&list=OLAK5uy_le7iJKG6bm8V9HkDmL5SNMXCOaVXra3nQ&index=8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Qg7AnCysaE&list=OLAK5uy_le7iJKG6bm8V9HkDmL5SNMXCOaVXra3nQ&index=13

You seem to like lots of different types of stuff :)

I'm not really into metal but have been known to listen to Iron Maiden now and then.

I picked up a couple of records from a shop's charity bin on Saturday and am currently listening to Live at the Pickwick by the Peddlers from around 1967. I always loved their sound.

I'm listening to Paul O'Grady (yes I know!) before I watch Robin Hood and he's playing Stars on 45. I can't believe that I'd ever hear this again unless it was playing a chart from a certain year.

To be fair Paul was equally dismissive of his producer's decision to play it.

People always go on about how McCartney played all the instruments on his first album, but what they forget to add is that it is total f**king shit. Anyone can do a total f**king shit album on their own. 'I made this all by myself.' - Is it any good? - No, it's total f**king shit, but I did it all by myself. Awesome!
