« Thread started on: Jun 2nd, 2010, 07:21am »

A flamboyant singer named Pete
Used to dress up - that's hardly discreet
He'd don the disguise
As the Watcher of Skies -
Just some bat wings and a dirty old sheet

A brilliant guitarist named Steve
Could play like you would not believe
His favourite riff
From the 'Firth of Fifth'
When the strings got caught up in his sleeve

A trusty old bassist named Mike
Tied a lawnmower to his new bike
He said 'Now as I go,
The grass I can mow
Like that guy from 'I Know What I Like''

A talented fellow named Phil
Played the drum kit with no little skill
But he was confused
When his work was reviewed
Seems his solo stuff made people ill

There was a keyboardist named Tony
Who composed an orchestral symphony
But fans they were 'dissing
There was something missing
Cause there wasn't enough Mellotrony

laugh

There once was a group from Surrey
Who started to run out of money
But then there were three
They now found the key
And they wrote Follow You Follow Me!

Apologies. undecided

There once was an official website
Which - to be honest - was a load of old shite
The fans they did pay
The band called it a day
So they closed it down, bye-bye, night-night.

a fantastic band from the UK
used to play loud music everyday
they used to make art
before they became old farts
and then they wound up with some guy named ray lipsrsealed laugh

When Steve left, the band went to pot
'And Then There ...' was the start of the rot
I'm OK with Duke
Though the ballads make me puke
As for 'Whodunnit', well ... they all should be shot ?!

My opus, "Whodunnit?"

Angry fans of a really great band
Thought the music wasn't going quite as they planned
Upon hearing "Whodunnit"
they decided, "That's done it!"
And branded the new output "bland".

But those fans who, right from the start,
Really understood the music as art,
Listened more clear
And started to hear
That the song was all about farts!

So what was this great band to do?
Whenever they played it, fans booed!
They realised at last,
what they had to do fast,
was get mike the bassist to do the drums and then we'll know that all of the rhythms will be completely correct and the song will sound wonderful and everyone will love it.

I wish I could remember my poem about the scone on the Mellotron. The only bit I can recall is -

Said Tony, 'Have you seen my scone
I left it on the Mellotron ?'
Mike replied, 'I did not take
Your delicious fruity cake !'
But clever Tony was suspicious
How did Mike know it was delicious ?


And I know, in the end, Phil had hidden it in his bass drum ... but that's about it. Shame.

There was a good bloke called Steve Hackett,
Who with Gibson could raise a right racket,
he exceedingly rocks,
On the Musical Box,
And in every hall he helped pack it!

When the band made Invisible Touch,
Some fans thought it was a bit much,
They made that one their last,
And craved for the past,
Memories close to hearts they did clutch...

I once dated a cute girl named Betty
And I thought we should really go steady
But I showed her the door
And would see her no more
'Cause she bitched when I played "Supper's Ready".

When starting The Musical Box,
Pete's headset looked just like a fox,
He was out to impress,
So he wore a red dress,
And from then on Genesis Rocks!

In a final album called CAS
A band failed to covince the World of it's Class
One Man's Fool it may be
what may be may be
More fool those who failed to spot the panache

After a final album called CAS
Boxsets appeared en masse
Then they closed the old forum
"Fans feelings....we`ll ignore `em
After all ,we`ve taken their cash"
