Some Jefferson Airplane incarnation did it as did Pentangle, but I do not think either was the first. You are probably stumping me.

plays, re: duane im not sure what u r getting at, i am positive gryph is correct about the coricidin, my source is scott freeman's book, "midnight riders" which i read cover to cover several times, being an allmans junkie in my youth.



slide guitar was originally called bottleneck guitar because players would use the neck of a broken wine bottle to get the effect.

it was duane who always used a coricidin bottle.

while we are on allmans trivia, who was elizabeth reed? (no google please)

BTW, for the big crowd out there who thinks layla is a guitar masterpeice and witness to eric claptons virtuoisity...the slide in the peice, both the fast first part and the second slow part, is played by duane allman, check the credits.

the slide in "while my guitar gently weeps" is not played by george harrison, its played by eric clapton, who was inspired at the feet of the great duane allman, probably the best slide guitarist who ever lived.

Wasn't Elizabeth Reed a friend of one of the band? I seem to remember reading who she was but can't remember.

I'm wrong. \:o

My source is my memory of reading an interview with Duane Allmann that was printed in Rolling Stone (back when it looked like a tabloid). In it, he said that his favorite slide item was one of those little individual glass bottles of cream you used to get in restaurants when you ordered coffee. Remember them?

I don't remember them, and I'd be interested in seeing this printed anywhere.

It took some searching, but someone has a few of these cream bottles for sale on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=10906&item=6170646426&rd=1

They were very common when I was growing up.

I'll have to do some serious searching to find that interview quote. Be patient. I'm only this tenacious when I know I'm right. :p ;\)

the band used to practice late at night at the rose hill cemetary in macon georgia.

one of the gravestones nearby, had the name elizabeth reed (1845-1935)

dicky betts immortalized her by dedicating a song to her memmory, because of all the jam sessions they had near her grave and she was probably listening to from the "other world".

You're all WAY too smart for me to even wade in here.

I've been thinking since last night of something that I know that you all don't (trying to formulate my own trivia question you see) ... and I can't.

Kudos to you all!
In RL I seem to have all the answers, but suddenly in the company of the Coffee Room I'm dumb as a rock!

...

I did get the Yardbirds question right though... (just didn't post in time)

Alright, this one isn't all that old, or all that difficult. But:

Who was the lead singer for the band "The Boomtown Rats"? Bonus points if you can tell me what the song "I don't like Mondays" was about.

Riddles!

Bob Geldof, ah, what a name! Such turgid beauty in an almost transparent guise! Hark! To have such an assembly of letters in unison must mean the gods themselves are upon us!

Yes it was. And the song stirred up quite the controversy (not that I'm old enough to remember it!)
