Sa-weet sounding Ripper. Really hear it at around 5:15



Yeah, that really sounds great!
Why did Salvador Dali cross the road?
Clocks.

Rick on the Ripper, 1987.

Garth just turned 80 the other day. Feel old yet?

80? Wow, I didn't realize that.

Let me guess, the guitarist liked Mick Ronson?  :mrgreen:

It would certainly appear so.

Unusual song - and not just for the Ripper (played by Mick Clarke), but also for the radical change in the Rubettes' previous do-wop nostalgia sound. Trying to escape the hit machine, they tried this self-penned country ballad sung by their drummer (not the singer of all their previous hits) - about a gay couple (in 1976!). The song even worked its way up the charts until the BBC banned it.



The Ripper would be seen more often:



The country sound stayed on:



With slight excursions into Beatles/Badfinger territory:

But you know how eclectic my tastes are! Who else you know owns five freshly remastered Rubettes albums and listens to Bitches Brew as well?

Jackie saw him back in the 70's and let me know this morning... rip...

Staring at the event horizon is a dirty job, but someone has to do it...

I have to admit I'd never heard of this singer but seeing a bunch of RIP posts today sent me looking, and this was the first one I pulled up. That Ripper's seen some miles!

A pity that Charles B left us, I've been waving his flag here often enough after I once stumbled across a live performance of him and his band while zapping around on the TV late at night.

The performance above must have of course been filmed at an old Wehrmacht warehouse close to the Dutch border - where else could have all those bicycles come from?  8)

The joke would work so much better if it didn't say "Seattle" in big block letters at the beginning of that video ;P
Robert Plant and Jimmy Page (drummer and bassist of Deep Purple, Jake!)
