Rolling Stones Drop ‘Scarlet,’ Previously Unreleased 1974 Track Featuring Jimmy Page (Listen)

"The Stones rolled out details their upcoming goat's head soup box set earlier this past month, But the most exciting elements for their fans was a previously unreleased song. According with Jimmy Page that you're listening to year called Scarlet sets not coming out to a September the fourth. But this week, the band released the highly anticipated track. Song was cut in October in 1974 with Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, both handling guitar duties and traffics Rick Gretch on the base. Pete says. My recollection is that we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session. They were just leaving and we were booked in next and I believe that Jimi decided to stay. We weren't actually cutting. It is a track was basically just a demo was to get the feel of it, but it came out well over the line up like that. You know, we better be using it. 1975 page told Rolling Stone that Rolling Stone magazine that he thought the track was supposed to be a B side of a stones record. It sounded very similar style and mood to those blonde on blonde tracks. Jimmy said. He was great. Really good. We stayed up all night when down Island Studios where Keith put some reggae guitars over one section. I just put some solos on it. It was eight in the morning and next day before he was able to do that. I remember first, jamming this song with Jimmy and Keith in Ronnie's basement student, Jang said his great session. A new edition of Goat's head soup also features previously unreleased tracks Criss cross and all the rage along with the rare demos and a complete concert, taped at a gig in Belgium in 1973. Stones originally planned on touring American football Stadium this year, But certainly that gonna happen this year anyway. During the down time, they've released a new song called Living in a Ghost Town. The first original songs. He's 2012. So the stones are at it. Interesting, Jimmy Page story. Never heard this one before. No, I like the song though. It's very Yeah, I kind of did, too. Yes, I didn't know if I love seeing old documentaries. We've been watching a lot of stuff about Laurel Canyon and like Ringo was actually really good friends with Mickey Dolenz, the drummer for the Monkeys, which was always a joke that the monkeys were created to be like the American beetles. And so it's it's I like seeing who was actually friends with whom and to see that I never knew Jimmy Page in the Stones ever had any crossover and the fact that he played on the song is really cool. Jimmy Page lives in a house across the street from Murray Gellar's old house in Sonny. And apparently, he's quite noisy in the neighbourhood,

"A present for me and I'm taking this with me and they're like Oh gosh. Here's something no jolly rally. In this holly in Tacoma Washington every year. We do a gift exchange on Christmas. But it's the same boring draw. The numbers pick a gift deal deal every year. Any suggestions on how to mix up a holiday gift exchange so people don't just fall straight to sleep when it's announced. Well he coulda but Toss your keys in with your president to Saturday that I ever probably spice things up. Here's either everybody brings to gaffes. One gift is worth a lot of money and one gift is worth very little money and then you build a big bonfire in the middle of the room and everyone has to pick one of the gifts. Yes and the other one Aranda gets thrown into the bonfire. Only diversity brought the president's nose. Oh that's good. What about something with an element of danger? Ooh Ooh what about a deadly creature for example. Like that what about just a fight to the death where say you have thirty people and you only have twenty nine gifts. That could be refund. You could go with a classic that are not used to try to employ lladro tickets. Because you don't know how good of a gift it is or how bad it's just a scratch it's your luck of the draw shredding your gift just and it sounded like you were trying to start a chant at a sporting event tickets. I like justice idea. I think just load these. Things up. Chockablock asks and I know a guy is it Mark Antony we can get you five asks by the afternoon you gotTa Guy You gotta ask Guy Guy Come on. He prefers. He's more of an ask a man. Okay here's something from sad. We've in San Diego every year. My parents it's ask my siblings and I make Christmas lists my problem is. I'm a very big anime fan and all I all I really want for. Christmas is anime merchandise. However one year put an anime figurine on my list? My mom just glanced at it and said you don't need that and then didn't buy it mom ever since then. I keep putting figurines on my list in hopes of them getting it for me but to no avail. Help me brothers. How do you convince my parents? That a tasteful figurine of Victor Nikiforoff from my favorite anime. Yori on ice is more important than socks or an ugly Christmas sweater. The title of that show is stylized with an exclamation point in there. And Jesse I have to thank you for the really voicing that I'm a professional griffin. I think that what you do in your hand over the list. It's only got one thing on it. And that's the figuring Victor Nikiforoff and then when they're like no you just stand your ground and you don't take the lissack if they try to get you anything else. You build a bonfire looking. That's a terrible idea. Travis I don't know how he's supposed to play pretend with just one of the figures He can't make a reenacting. The great fights or ice skating dances. Or here's the thing. My email address just an asthma. Bam Bam dot com email makes and I will buy you whatever and we figure you want on your family anymore. Rely on me just Jessop your family. Now I'm here now and I'm going to buy you an anime figure this year. Congratulations Justin Justin. Emma Bam Bam dot com. Email me I will buy and this goes for anybody who sit in this question this figure of your. Hey what what happened. Justin always broke now. Yeah brought bought. Ten thousand year is not just as one person if someone else says exact same problem and sit in this exact same in question letter for letter. I will also by the enemy figuring. I don't WanNa leave anybody out Justin. I had the same problem but it was with the original Yuri before they put it on ice doc area on the rocks. I tell you I think you can do a limited less but put your Yuri on ice figure on it and then the only other thing on the list is a big bag of drugs they can just say two pounds of any drug of your choice mother and then it's up to them about the path you're gonNA walk. Get Get to think one enemy figuring the second is GRANDPA poison well Justin Griffin Travis. I sure appreciate you taking the time to answer. All these questions on the Bulls Eye holiday special. Have you guys got big holiday plans this year for my brother my brother in me. This is actually a this is kind of capstone for me. I mean I think that maybe just had an eye in griffin and I might see each other this year extent exchange presence percents Think a few of our closest friends are GonNa come to our candle night show in Huntington But I think that's about it. I think that's about all we have plans we're GONNA. We're doing our annual charity fundraiser. MME ANGELS DOT COM IF YOU WANNA help buy gifts and items for people in our area less fortunate folks in our area Who would appreciate that too so you can find that? NBA NBA am angels Dot Com. That's right well thanks guys. I thank you the piano music. You're hearing right now is by our friend. Brett Wind Balk Doc. By the way he is a professional stand up comedian. One of the funniest. There is a genuine brilliant genius of standup comedy. He also for many years was a professional piano player. In fact I think he was one of those piano player. Who plays the giant Grand Piano in the Nordstrom the department store anyway? He has a collection of Christmas songs that he recorded on his piano at home. It's called Christmas piano and it's available to listen to pretty much anywhere you go streaming wise. So here's comedian. Brent winebox tickling the ivories distinctly not funny.

"It's bull's eye Jesse Thorn. It's our annual Bullseye. A holiday spectacular this week when the holidays roll around. We love to get some pertinent advice from our friends the mcelroy brothers just stained travis and Griffin are the hosts of the smash it. podcast my brother my brother and me right here. At maximum fund they have joined me from their various disparate points across across this great nation Travis Griffin Justin. Welcome back to the show. Nice to have you thank you so much you I treasure my favorite Christmas tradition We've been doing it since we were toddlers. Actually Jesse a teenager would come into our home. That's right he's fifty five years old he would come home. Yes ask us for holiday advice. I mean imagine I I. It's been my holiday tradition for many years to travel the nation gathering questions for this even back when I was a team name. Yes that's why they call them. Jesse questions seeds travel the countryside collecting questions. Here's something from. I didn't keep the receipt so I got my boyfriend Polaroid camera for Christmas and it's already neatly wrapped underneath the tree however today. He told me he's planning to buy that same camera camera for himself. How do I convince him not to buy the camera without letting it slip that that's what I got him Last year I thought to get my wonderful awful niece Charlie. This little kids camera so I called my older brother Justin. Justin does she have this and he said no of course not and then when we arrived did their home for Christmas she totally did So now it's going to be a future present for my daughter so maybe you could re gift this camera to somebody somebody else or I don't know just say like hey don't buy that because Santa That's the traditional approach. Yes don't buy anything because SANA have you guys tried tried using the Santa excuse with your romantic partners. Unfortunately Santa can't bring the one thing. My wife wants for Christmas which she got her a little note to Santa Right here. It says she wants just like a second. Please just one second. And you've only got to read Justin. We have two two children which is so many try upgrading by fifty percent. My friend now Jesse. I can't repeat your mistakes. That's why the older generation is there for my generation Asian to learn from them. You've seen that movie misery. That could be a great solution. As problem boyfriend down his legs exist doesn't go bipolar but griffin you forgetting about one thing Amazon dot com also. He kills her at the end. I guess you're forgetting about two things things. Yeah Return. The camera get a tiny scanner so they can make those pictures relevant to this year in which we live twenty eighteen. Ad No no but just in. What if the question asked returns the camera and gets a tiny scanner but then the boyfriend doesn't buy a camera and instead I guess also gets a tiny tiny scanner? Oh Henry okay. Here's something from all. I want for Christmas tunes in Texas. I love Christmas. Machines Zun Polaroid camera and I hope they got the wood grain. I love Christmas music and I broke out my Christmas playlist at twelve o one. AM on November first this year. Wow my girlfriend however it is not like Christmas music because she's worked in retail for so along and had to hear it all day every day during the Christmas season. How do I convince her to get on board or at least to tolerate my Christmas jams? I have have found if you are willing to dig a little deeper. There's a great movie about this called Jingle Bell rocks about the vast loads of Christmas music that have not become wildly overplayed over the years. And if you did a little deeper. There's some fantastic Christmas music holiday music. Well however you want to slice it that is out there that has not been just like done to death. That's still very excellent. It's just like knock completely one thousand percent overplayed like like some of the classics asks. The director of that film is passed bull. I guess you can listen to a past Bullseye holiday special to hear you. Jessie just like one segment without that. Come on come on what I want for Christmas less wild self promotion I want. I want you to be mindfully president in this segment. Thank like you. I'll tell you what they're not blasting over the PA.. Barnes and noble is traditional. Nearly Ancient Christmas hymns give some of those going in there. I'm talking about these five stanza babies you can also good deeper into the the classics to get some of the virtues is that maybe we don't always get to dear. This is an actual verse. I was recently reading Larisa Jingle Bells this is an actual verse. Oh it gets wild a day or two ago the story I must tell l.. I went out on the snow and all my back I fell a was riding by a one horse open sleigh. He laughed as there. I sprawling lie but quickly drove away. What uh-huh cruel America's funniest home video in the middle of Jingle bells all these years and nobody anyways merry Christmas that's how Dr Atkins Diet? That's not funny. It is the justice kind of ooh. Here's something from Santa's future stepson. Was Mommy Really Kissing Santa Claus or was it just their partner dressed as Santa. Last last year I listened to the holiday classic. I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus and had a realization that the reason daddy didn't see Mommy tickle. Santa was because Daddy was Santa. When I brought my findings to my friends they said I was wrong and it really was Santa that Mommy had smooch above his beard so snowy white who is Mommy Kissing Santa Real and a home wrecker or his? Mommy just into Santa play. I think kidding no I can't say definitively whether Daddy is Santa but I think we can all agree Santa is daddy thank you. Griffin has hit upon the possible symbol. Third option here. Santa Claus is Your Dad Song. Oh this saying internet sex way but sexy. See all manner there in a sexual manner. That's possible San is a major daddy. We can all agree on this. There's no argument here. I'm saying the song from the perspective of a Fred Claus Orin Arthur Christmas and Arthur Christmas. Thank you travis. Who finds out that he is in fact Santa's son? Oh okay okay. Here's the pitch I call the movie. I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus Boy doesn't know his father's father's never been around. Oh what's that his father. Santa Green Light Green Light Green. Green light on thinking Fifteen Mil Get back to me and let me know what you think was green light. Green light green light a series of green lights and different media. Yes ask film. Television full motion video gaming. It was filmed television at McDonald's toys. Did you all know that a live action version of this. This film was adapted in two thousand. Two starring Connie CELICA and Corbin Bernsen. Swear God they did a whole movie. Eight blows my mind to even consider that this on that it's not the person dies after a boy seabed in Santa Claus suit kissing his mother. He thinks the real set of wants to replace father so he goes to prank war with them. How does that last longer? Go say one prank. Are you kidding me. That's a verse of the Song. I hadn't heard. Yeah Man I will say this Santa Claus when he does his job in your house makes himself vulnerable pretty much the entire time. He's in there. Yeah I mean his ingress is a pit pit of fire. There's a lot of easy ways to kill Santa. I've thought about this a lot. Strange note to end on. But here's something I'm from distressed in DC last year when flying home. I was stopped airport security because I had a wrapped gift in my carry on bag after they're being cleared as no threat to national security. I remarked to my girlfriend that it was weird. They stopped me for that. She said everyone knows. You can't bring a wrapped gift through security ready. I disagree my question is why aren't wrapped gifts allowed. Surely they can still see through them with their x ray machines emphasis mine. I'm not using lead lined gift. Wrap please help me understand so I can put this behind me are they checking are are they checking the wrapped gift carry carry on. They explicitly do say that. Okay good I mean this is the same sort of organization that thinks the pouches of Apple. Sauce I try to bring onto. The plane is actually two guns. So let's not start bringing reason into it now. I think the reason that the. PSA doesn't like it is they see and they think. Oh.

Athletes, and we went up to Angeles crest highway into this boys reform place, and we just got the shit kicked. His his kids just beat the shit out of. We made the point. I mean, it's like, and we raise the little money. And and and then we went to the rain bone got hammered. That's just the Larry. But this is how it's was not a drinking club. I wanna you're making news on on record. It did not start out as a drinking club is started out as a charity softball team. Fascinating. To raise money for local causes. I love that as grad go. You have something no says we're winding down MC tell us about the new album, tell us about Christmas party. Well after the incredible. Success of good times. Which was great this last Albuquerque fans, please get it. It's. Glad you did. Who fifty years ago fifty years later five because later gets a top twenty. Album. The equivalent. I worked out mathematically was that if in nineteen sixty seven. Enrico Caruso would have had a top twenty album remind teen seventeen that's mind, blowing or any can't. I worked a math out. So the fact that a fifty year old act. Yeah. Gets top twenty pretty cool. Our them alone is an I feel so blessed to have you know, all these writers of any part. Alan Partridge rivers Cuomo. Oh my God. I I feel so blessed. Well, the new one. Yeah. Yeah. No the Christmas one now. So after good times, the record company, of course, wanted to capitalize on it. And chase it up. I did not feel comfortable trying to do. Good times too. Immediately. It would have been a lot of work and very diff- difficult decisions. Because a lot of the material that we had found was archival. And there was some in. There is some and we may do that. But. I just I just didn't. I thought. We just got this. It's still on the charts. Yeah. I what are we gonna do? You know resurrect. Some other Davy Jones old vocal is a little bit. Do something different. Yeah. So someone rhino a said how about a Christmas album, which we had never done. And I as sort of the defacto lead singer. I said, wow, that's a cool idea. I mean 'cause it is not this. Kind of attempted follow up, you know, number two. You know, good times to Batman too. And so we reached out and slush injure essentially reached out to reverse Cuomo and to Andy Partridge into. The other writers and said, what do you got?.

"There probably was one. But but that was not what it was about. And Jack God love him and Bob Bert captured. The reality. Of that time. That movie is the only movie. I've ever seen. Captures the moment. Everything else is Roger Corman. Sorry to Roger minimum love, MS great filmmaker. But everything else was bullshit. So the real the real experience of the sixties and. What you what you were living. I think that movie, and I only had a very small parts do us. I think that it captured a couple of things, and I wait a minute. I haven't even started. It not only captured the sensibility of the moment. But more importantly, it captured the idea, and Bob and Burt and Jack and Peter Fonda and Dennis hopper and Martin Scorsese idea of. The deconstruction of the Hollywood studio system. This is what was their goal. I didn't interview for a raging bull. Easy rider. Raging bull. Yeah. Good book. Great. And now looking back. I didn't even think of this time. But looking back this is what was the intent. At that time as you. Well know, if you weren't part of the Hollywood city of system, you could not get a movie even made if you did if you're lucky to raise enough money like Billy jacker, somebody sure. Is it matter? You couldn't get it distributed. You were fucked. You couldn't you know, you're not gonna get thirty screens. You're not gonna get one screen getting not getting shit. Bobbin 'but, and Peter and a Dennis, obviously. And. They're all in the movie head, by the way. Sure. Or they this is my take on it. They said this is our out clause. This is our way to break out of this fucking locked in Hollywood studio system a Birt's father's Abe Columbia. We can make a movie that it was cheap to fifty three hundred thousand I'm for head. We can make a movie that like. You know sets different sort of parameter minutes. Like all of a sudden, here's something different. And that is you know, what the movie was and they took that money. They made easy rider. That's right and people forget that an easy rider. Of course, totally deconstructed the Hollywood studio system, it created the independent film industry. I got a question here from somebody loosely connected to that movie. You know, Victoria, mature matures daughter. She I told you we're going to be on. She says please ask Mickey at the premiere of head in New York. There was some kind of art installation. Was it an Andy Warhol thing? Does he have any memory of that? Absolutely. You. You Andy Warhol was fan a big fan. He got it other guy who got the monkey. He's got the monkeys the whole pop culture thing. God. No. I mean way be on my sensibilities at the time, but he was a big fan. He came up to me and introduce himself in like Frank Zappa like others. John Lynn bed. Harry got it too. Oh, yeah. Smart guy. Harry with a wicked sense of humor that Harry definitely got it. And. Yeah, do remember that now that you got a vivid memory for all of this stuff for my age? Just stuff that you want. Can you talk a little bit about your adventures with the with the Hollywood vampires, which I think over fascinated by with Mr Nielson, and Mr. Cooper, absolutely Alice live next door to me. His name was Vince actually, visit Vince forty-eight. Yup. Yeah. And we became friends he recorded in my studio his demo album a couple of them. We just became friends and hang out and stuff. And played golf together. My ex father in law, an English duffer. Taught both he and I play golf. Of course, Alex, Allah Alice's now three handicap or something or better. I'm not good at all. But. One day Alice says he lives next door to me. He moved next door to be. Next to me Alice Cooper, did Alison because we knew each other. And we built this like. Kind of launch thing. What do you call it a catapult where we would send beer? Into each other's pools. And. Babysat for my daughter. When Samantha my first wife and would go out of town. And if Alice was in town with his wife at the time, I pictures of him babysitting. My my daughter, Amy. With the cannon, bud. And and we we became very very good friends, very close and..

"I hope it's true that the reason they called it head is. So they could make another one and advertise it as from the people who gave you head absolutely right on other grad. Remember that? That is absolutely true from what I remember from the day one. Yes. Well, the short story is after the show was cancelled for whatever reason. Bobbin Bert came to me, I can only speak for myself and said we we wanna make a movie. A father is the head of Columbia Pictures. We think we can get the financing. We wanna do something. Maybe a little different than what we have done on the show. Because on the show. We couldn't say hell. Yeah. Sure. And we couldn't talk about anything else political social it was and that looking back that was a wise edition what it was not the platform that was not the platform to make statements and stuff. And I think that's one of the reasons lasted so long until this day is we didn't make topical satirical statements. That was a smart decision. Very smart. And but when the idea the movie came along. Just for myself. Bob. I guess came to me and said, well, he introduced us to Jack Jack Nicolson he was a boom B movie actor at the time, and he was just so funny, so clever and intelligent, and so smart, and it was just like I fell in love with him. I wanted to have his children. Oh my God. This is the greatest guy met and. You know years, and he spent time with me, and my wife and my family and Mike and Peter David. He got a sense of who. And what it was he and Bob of obviously, you know. Spent a lot of time together 'cause I had signed off on. Okay. I'm happy to do a movie that is not a ninety minute. Monkey episode. In retrospect, of course, that would have been incredibly more successful. But it would not be the top five movies of Quentin Tarantino, right? Edgar right. You guys break out you were trying to do something different than you've done. You know, I like to think that I was thinking that you aren't no I just going with the flow, Bob and Burton, Jack. And and everybody were like, hey, let's go for it. I had nothing to lose. I was huge fucking star. I was like, let's do something different guys. That was that was the sensibility of the moment. Anyway, then that with the Mukesh oh. Done that with the show the show itself had like broke all the barriers. And so I'm now twenty two twenty three and I'm like, yeah. Fuck do it. Let's go for it. And we sat down with each other. And with Jack and film actual film, put of this meeting love to see no sound, but and a little tape recorder and we sat down in a hotel room in ohi- for a weekend. And we talked about what we wanders to do what we didn't want to do what we be comfortable doing what we it was total care wacky in on the road sort of Jack Cassidy, I mean looking back. That's what. We were doing it was just chain of what do you call it the stream of consciousness of conscious? Thank you. Yeah. And out of that Jack glory. Wrote this incredible screenplay. I'm not sure how much Bob had to do with it, frankly. But I I I would think probably a bit a lot maybe, but Jack just went away and after meeting us and being there and seeing the whole monkey thing from like every aspect, and he went and wrote this I think really amazing screenplay. And so here's my thoughts at that time. The only kind of. Sixties hippie kind of movies that were being made were and I love him to death. Peter Fonda and all the psych out those things the freaky far three trip trip. Trippy? Which I remember watching. Not. What is like? What is like? Is in here. It ain't out there. All the experiences, all those sensibilities all those moments all that. Essence. That zeitgeist again, it was here in the head in our heads. Yes. Not out there. That's what the press, and the, you know, fake news. Yeah. They were like taking pictures of VW vans with flowers. I never saw fucking these vast..

"Was there an in by the way in that ad when they row must come to ask come down for interview. Jope must come down for. That rayson gag absolutely Paul Williams audition. Yeah. Yeah. To this day. He hates me. He's the best guy. I love him to death. I. We're actually great great friends when I directed wrote the English musical Bugsy Malone. Sure pulse. I engaged him to write three or four more songs. Right. And so we hung out a lot. I know well, and he has never forgiven. The not for the monkeys. He was up for circus. Boy. Oh god. Jeez. Polian Sunder at every turn were they entertain the idea of using an existing group. Mickey with eleven spoonful. And yeah, you've done your homework. They try I love this stuff. So they they did my understanding is they did they they they did interview the Lovin spoonful. I have no idea. I was not there, obviously. And I've no idea why they made the decisions that they did make right, but I suspect. That. Between Bob invert. Jackie Cooper, and poems. Erskine all these other of elements is other instances. You know, having a musical sensibility is fine. And great and most bans most groups have that because they grew up together they are relatives. Right. They are friends from childhood, and they have a very similar since ability, and that's great musically, not necessarily visually. The Marx brothers were the most. Different absurd. Characters. You can imagine. They were not a group. They weren't a ban. They were this cast of this like bazaar. Right. But they'd home that for for thirty years thirty five years on state. Sure. Sure. So Bob and Bert somebody, and I'm assuming it was Bob and Bert in Jackie Cooper, whoever said, you know. And I don't know maybe they did tests. Whatever, you know, we just can't put for very similar people. Unst on this stage in the show because no one will know who's who? And it will all look very similar. So we need to go with very very different characterizations and minder standing is that they loosely thought, you know, one wacky. One will Rogers one Harpo Marx one Peter tort, right one cute little guy and to give the audience in all these different sort of characters to I a dentist I with. And if they would've put 'cause most groups at the time or brothers and cousin singer and sonically. Of course, it was amazing visually. Where do you go with it? You know, where do you go with the comedy? And so somebody along the line must have said, you know, we need to like have these very very different characters hemp, the chemistry is lucky because you can't you can't force chemistry or make chemistry. But you know, at the four of you guys. So what they did wisely where the screen tests, and they went on. And this would I was referencing earlier. They went on for like, I say to my mind, it was like frigging months. Probably wasn't. It was only a few weeks. But what they did is they kept putting us together with each other. I remembered starting out like at thirty two that went to sixteen them's like eight and the the the the videos you find on on YouTube of the last eight David Michael, Peter, and I and for other right, gentlemen, and they. They must've been looking for that. That's well. I know that's what they were looking for because I've done that Senator tangible thing, but you I guess you know, when you see it. Yeah. And I have done that. John and paid your the autumn it compliment, I think John Lennon referred to the monkeys as modern-day. Marx brothers. Yes. Yes. Well, you've got it. Yeah. He got it wasn't the monkeys trying to be the Beatles. It was the monk is being essentially the Marx brothers. You always said, the people, you admired, God, it Lennon Zappa, the people the people whose opinions matter to you to me understood what you were trying to do. Yeah. I didn't even I didn't even get at the time. Just picking up. My check every week for four hundred dollars and oh dollars a week. Wow. Oh my God. Now and how did hit come about? The movie.

You gotta write some stuff and Caroline, Jerry right pleasant valley Sunday. So I I have nothing but admiration for Donnie Kirschner he had golden ears golden ears. He could hear the, but I didn't know who you was because he was in New York. I was in LA, and I was twenty years old. And I'm in the midst of this. I'm in the eye of the hurricane and this guy comes in once in a while in a suit. You know, looking like the vice president or somebody. And he's like, you know, giving orders and kind of, you know, you know, directing people around, and I had no clue who he was at the time ears later. I did. And so we're in the the way I remember it is that we were in the studio. And there was Mike was in studio. Peter, and we were all there for some reason. I don't remember why doing vocals Ensar and Donny who I had no idea who he was. I don't even know if I'd been introduced. Made some comment very technical kind of comment. Like, you know, there's a little bit too much eq- on the base. And. I'm stoned. We're all just like rocking and rolling this like midnight.

They pitch 'em possible to turn it off of a really important idea. How did they pitch it to you? Did they say this is hard day's night? This is less stir. This is the Marx brothers. This is. Present what they were going for that specific. I can only describe to you my experience, and I can guarantee you that if you talked to Mike or Peter, well, obviously not David anymore, but you'll get probably ino Rauch Amman. Sure. Yeah. Just different version. This is monkey mon- monkey. Chaman because we were all totally unknowable. We never knew each other. We hadn't met, but I I will tell you. My my version my story.

"I couldn't can't tell you. But. In those days, of course, actors like Hans Conrad would learn their lines, and they would expect to come in and do their lines on cue, you know, action. Boom you, and of course, we are off the walls, and there's a famous outtake of him saying, I hate these fucking kids. I don't blame him. And I just day. I feel sorry. But it ain't my fault. The producers encouraged us to do this. Because what they would do is take the best of the shit and the best of the good stuff in the best of the outtakes in the best of this. And there were other actors and actresses at the time who were able to go with the flow rose Marie is the best example, we did two or three at least two or three shows with her. And she got it. And she was like right there. For everything. So they wanted anarchy. They were encouraging you guys to just bounce off the walls and see what they got. Yes. Yeah. They were they incurred not just encouraged educated. I mean, they trained. Yeah. They wanted that idea. They wanted that feeling of spontaneity, and because that was zeitgeist of the time remember while you wouldn't 'cause you're too young. The the idea of the sixties early sixties was fat spontaneity improvisation anything goes, you know, the, you know, remember, it's the remnants of the beatnik. Yeah. Generation of care Wak. And and Jack Cassidy and all that idea of it's just, you know. And they wanted to counterculture show. I mean, you guys mess with the sensors yet that famous episode where you were trying to. Well, I know about it. I don't I don't know if you told us less, I'm you here. I know about it. 'cause it's a famous story where you were you couldn't say hell on network television. And you guys just decided this would be a good time to tweak the network and the sensors. Well, yeah, not just us member. There's of raves rifles Schneider. There was an episode called the devil in Peter torque, and it was Faust, essentially. Based on the Faustine legend, Peter sold his soul to the devil. Britt will. Yep. To be able to play the harp because he couldn't play the harp. But he wanted to. And so I can't remember who wrote the episode of we had some great writers on that series. Somebody wrote the episode that Peter sells his soul to the devil. Monte Landis crawl. Oh my God. Incredible character actor. And he comes back to the flat the apartment Mel Malibu are Malibu beach house. The question. How could we afford a Malibu? Never got work. Yeah. So that's a whole other issue. So Peter comes back says I can play the harp. But the Peter how do how well this guy gave me this contract, and we see it, and it's the contract with the devil. And so the line in the scrip is, and I think I was the one that was supposed to say it, but Peter you can't sign this. Because if you do, and you die, you go to hell, and they sent it off to the script to standards and practices. NBC New York, and they came back. You cannot say the word hell. In primetime television, ever, and Bob Raval, San my understanding is that Bob and Bert said, wait a minute. This is foul. Are you kidding me? Damn yankees. I was damn monkeys essentially. Right. And they said, no, he can't say it. So Bob winter New York understand flew to New York and argued with the standards and practices of the time. And they said, no, you cannot say hell in primetime television in one thousand nine hundred sixty six and so if you look at the episode now. That scene comes up. And I believe I'm the one that says, but Peter you can't do that. Because if you sign this you will go to this place that we can't say on that worked. Fourth wall broken. Boy. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, think back have bizarre that must've been the sensors were all over L bet. And that's why when we did head. We just said, that's it what we want. Did you dump a soda over Kirchner's head is that true to no not well with an amendment? Okay. It was not a soda. It was just a bit of ice. Okay. That was the leftover soda. But I got a preface it by saying Donna Kirschner now, especially in retrospect was so responsible for so many great hits..

I mean, you N U N Davey who also was a child performer. You guys were the the two monkeys that were most likely to adjust and easily and tell tell us what Davy Jones what big show he was on on what big night. That's a fun connection in about that. You've done your research. First time, very said. Well, I have told the story before so, but I'll tell again sixty three four sixty February sixty four February six. Yeah. I was in just got out of high school, frankly, my father just passed away. I was a bit of a loose in hanging out running around San Fernando Valley in American graffiti esque sort of zeitgeist. Ooh. Wow. Paints a picture, and a friend of mine said I got a portable. Television black and white portable you can plug into your car, and we knew it stole it immediately. But you did you plugged into the cigarette lighter this sixty four and you put the Entenfeller rabbit ear little antennas up on the roof and a little cable came down, and you had a little eight inch black and white television. And we went to a place in the valley. Where I grew up called Bob's big boys, amber girl. Yeah. Very fame. They'll there. Right. Not that. Well. Burbank still there. The one in Burbank is still there the other one got torn down. And we were there getting served by the girls on the in of the car hops, you know, getting burgers and stuff and somebody said Beatles are on at Sullivan, and we'd heard that this was going to happen. There was a buzz in the air. That's the only thing I can really remember is that there was a buzz in the air about this English thing beetle thing something happening and sure enough we tweak the little rabbit ears on the top of the car, and this little black and white image comes in. And it's the Beatles on at Sullivan and this other little kid doing a song from all of her. Which was on Broadway at the time named Davy Jones. And we turned it off. Yeah. Beatles are over. But years later, of course, was playing the artful dodger. Maybe he was and one of the best if not the best artful dodgers ever. It's great trivia too. Because people knew obviously, they knew there watching the Beatles. They didn't know they were watching a monkey of a future monkey that was still to actually funnily enough. It's only two years away. Imagine. Yeah. Yeah. Davy? I've heard this. I thought it was bullshit Davey. Not know who they were is that possible. Yeah. You'd have to ask him he'd have to be stupid as yo Kono. No. No, I don't know. I have no idea. And here's some worthless. Trivia, David Bowie's, real name was Davy Jones. That's trivia, that's good. And worthless. Trivia is a great name for group. Could be the frogman trivia night at the whiskey. Worthless trivia. My last my last comment on circus boy because only because this name has come up on the show recently, your member gentleman named William Bodine. Of course, we in one shot Bodine became directed. Many episodes of surface boy and great director about that. You know, that he directed Bela Lugosi meets a Brooklyn gorilla, he's alleged. Yeah. He was he was he was co one shot Bodine cost if if the actor fell over and hit his face on the pavement. He wouldn't do a second date. He gonna get enough because I became known fifty five decades later as one shot Dolan's in England when I started to direct English TV shows and movies. It's not a great rep the have no because then they expect it from you, and they don't pay you. And you there expect you're expected to do it in one one take. And so a lot of the shit that I directed his. I got known for big really fast. I need to have this thing shot in thirty minutes. Get make you don't. And so it's not necessarily a great great rep. But that's true. Yeah. He was he very fast Jesse James meets Frankenstein's daughter. Also, William Bodine joint. Yeah. We're fascinated by his career..

"But I was a fan. I remembered so between him and Don Kirshner and a bird Snyder. Bob Rae Palmas or ski who wrote the pilot Larry Tucker. Larry Tucker is partner at the time. They just I guess they just got it. They, you know, green lighted a pilot and. You know rest is hysterectomy sort of getting ahead a little bit to make him. But I was going to ask sorry. I was gonna ask you at. What point did you realize? This thing is going to take off and my life is never going to be the same. Well, that's a great question because it happened to me actually once before. When I got the circus boy gig. I was in the business through my parents of already and my father was doing quite well, and so I understood a little bit at least about the business. So at ten years old, and I remember this quite clearly I had gone for auditions I'd already been on a few additions. In fact, I have some prenatal work coming out on L tra- sound really very look for that. It's it's a grainy in black and white. I want to remind our listeners to before you go in that your father was a very -ccomplish character, actor, George. Tell us about your parents. Okay. They've done. They're both were in showbiz. That was our family business. They met doing a play in Hollywood. My mom had come from Texas to be a star in Johnson. Sorry journal channel she'd driven out from Austin, Texas to be a actress my father had been born in Italy had had extinct Mussalini, basically. I think jumped ship while somewhere. I'm we're not even sure but got outta town ended up in Cuba than Florida than all over the place wanted to be an actor a short story. He ends up in Hollywood in the restaurant business because he knew that. And he was the maitre d' of very famous restaurant. Call the truck Darrow back then and the story is. He was in the men's room taken a p and standing next to him is Howard Hughes. Who says you're a really good looking guy. Will you're the maitre d' here. Right. He says. Yeah. Says an actor signed him to a contract. So all of a sudden we move into the Bing Crosby mansion into Luca lay credible. Because in those days, you got a contract with anybody yet a shitload of money. So he signed with our K O. I right at knows Hugh with. Oh, yeah. Yes, right out of the bat right out of the bat out of the gate, but only made like one or two movies because Howard use only made one or two movies. And eventually, we we moved out of that place into a more reasonable place. But that was my life. I only knew that. I mean, I went to the set with him. I thought everybody's father was an actor. What movies was he in? And who did he in the biggest ones would have been been detto? The Howard Hughes movie with ahead. Oh, you know, the the woman that Howard Hughes, invented the Brian Russell. Yes. And then his biggest claim to fame. I think would have been the counter Montecristi ESI was the count of Monte Cristo for the television series shot in England and very successful. But he worked with everybody at G Robinson. And Elizabeth is last time. I saw Paris my cousin Rachel, Richard Burton. And scared stiff whichever hearing a Mark Martin Lewis movie. Did you ever try to get Jerry Lewis on the monkeys? He came funny. You should ask that question. I had totally forgotten. One day. We're we were told our member because they were looking for directors because we were killing directors. I mean actually couple of had heart attacks while it was like, really bad. That's a whole other story. And all of a sudden one day bobbin Burt said Jerry Lewis is coming on set considered directing and I was like huge fan huge fan of the delinquent those early. Yes, you're journalism. And I remember just like oh my God. I mean, how nice, and I might understand is. He said, I'm not gonna work with these fucking idiots..

"And I guess that he knew my father. I think they had actually worked in a movie together. And he said, hey, let them come over, and, you know, swim in the pool. So we would ducked through the fence and go swim in the pool and hang out. And we were obviously, you know, just little kids and then lo and behold twenty odd years. Later, something he comes on the show on the monkey show. And he remembered me, and I remembered him amount that yeah. Lovely man. Very gentle sweet Sweetman. Everybody was on that show. I think we talked we touched on it last time. I mean, we just mentioned Rosemary, Julie new more famously. Liberace you're paying your. Yeah. Yeah. It was it was a place to be seen well show to do at that time. It was and yet, but you know, it there was a lot of people that turned it down to your sting because they didn't get it and people that did get it like Frank Zappa who by the way. I don't know if I mentioned this before I'm probably hadn't remembered. Frank asked me to be the new drummer for the mothers of invention in the seventies. Very cool late seventies early eighties. And I call my record company, and they wouldn't let me out of my contract for the recording part. And I was kind of relieved because I'm I don't think viz any way I could have kept up with with with that kind of. I mean, I, you know, I've listened to Franks music, and is like, you know, time signatures are thirteen seven. Like, what is that? What you taught yourself the drums late. I don't people people know that I didn't. I did I had gestures or yet. How blaine? Giancarlos? You know, I had to learn fast. Yeah. You were you knew how to play the guitar. Yeah. But then they said you're not gonna play the guitar in this year, you're going to play drums. Well, like when I was ten years old. And they said you're going to write an elephant in circus. Boy. I said fine. Where do I start? I learned to write in elephant very quickly. It's not that that difficult. But in the monkey situation. My audition piece was on guitar. It was Johnny be good L. Right. Chuck Berry and that but eventually when they cast me they said, okay. And you're going to be the drummer, but being child of Hollywood and television and understanding the the the whole deal. I said fine. Where do I start? I could read music because of playing the Qatar. So I wasn't starting from square one. I I'd been in a rock groups, I had my own cover band mckeon the one nighters because it was only one night. But boy said a great night. And was there a missing links? Wasn't there a band, and the missing links that was another, and I was the lead singer and doing cover tunes, basically Chuck Berry, you know, money by Barrett, strong, you know, walking the dog. Lucille, you know, all that fifty sixties cover band stuff and hen who were some of the people who were writing monkeys music back then. Total unknowns. That never ever wrote another song in their lives. I don't know what happened to them. There were people like this girl called Carole king and her partner Gerry Goff awhile. There was this guy. Neil diamond whatever happened. There was Paul Williams. There was Neil sadaqa. It was Carole. Bayer Sager Diane Hildebrand voice and heart heart who wrote the biggest including the theme song. Right. And also the stuff. I don't know what else to. Daydream believer, which one of the original Kingston fits, right, Harry Nielson. You know, I don't know what happened to these. One year. Go on this appeared forever. So they would just basically like studio musicians you had these things. Well, they were writers. They were at the Brill building. Yeah. And that was not coincidental. A little bit of industry side note. Screen gems Columbia music was a subsidiary of Columbia screen gems television, which was part of Columbia Pictures, Columbia Pictures was at that time run by a Schneider, whose son Burke Schneider produced the monkeys. But more importantly is Jackie Cooper was the head of screen gems television. And so he got Jackie Cooper, these Jackie rascals. Well, and and he he got it. Somehow. I don't know. I met him when I met him. I'm like nineteen years old..
