I have 'More' by The Sisters Of Mercy which he co-wrote.

In the back of my head I knew there had to be something in my collection (he produced "This Corrosion" too, I think). Not that I listen to them very often any more...  ::)

Some of their stuff sounds great compared to the crap that's around today.

My mates The Nerves (local German band) covered "Rock'n'roll love letter" on their EP in 2002, I love that song!

I would hope that you don't own any!

I'm not quite sure, I think I had "Bat out of hell" on vinyl (cheapo) but gave it away later.
(Apart from this, there might be the odd song on a compilation, I'm not sure. Not a fan...)  8)

Jim Steinman, master of kitsch & overproduction... (no I don't own many of "his" records).

He told BBC 6 Music: "I can feel that people could get really quite depressed about the whole thing because there was a point where there was no light at the end of the tunnel. It was sometimes a little bit down for a lot of people, but I was lucky enough to avoid most of that."

Meanwhile, Mick recently slammed anti-vaxxers, describing their stance on the coronavirus jab as "irrational".

The Rolling Stones frontman said: "It just seems to be that even people you know that are relatively sensible about a lot of things have one thing that they just don’t kind of get.

"I have several friends and relations and they go off on these things that just doesn’t … They’re just irrational.

"Of course, there’s no point in speaking to people about it. They don’t get it. They got what they believe in and they believe in that. And it doesn’t matter what you say, they’re gonna believe in it. And rational thought doesn’t work."

Discussing the inspiration behind the tune, Jagger commented, "It's a song that I wrote about coming out of lockdown, with some much needed optimism.

"Thanks to Dave Grohl for jumping on drums, bass and guitar, it was a lot of fun working with him. Hope you all enjoy Eazy Sleazy."

Rat has been keeping himself busy (as usual).

Featuring Damned drummer Rat Scabies and multi-instrumentalist Chris Constantinou (Adam Ant) One Thousand Motels have added desert legend Sam Wheeler to their ranks for a union that’s the stuff of rock n’ roll dreams. Their latest album Get In Where You Fit In is more organic than their debut (2020’s 2% Out Of Sync) and finds the guys broadening their palette to create an album that reaches towards heady heights.

There's been 3 seasons so far.

I know, I should've gotten the boxset instead of "just" S1 (well it was cheap).  ::)

Westworld S1 was really good, now I want more (more more more!!!)...

It gets better and better, Helmut Kohl's son is suing J. Spahn (for unpaid bills):

Einer der Söhne des verstorbenen Altbundeskanzlers Helmut Kohl (CDU), Walter Kohl, hat wegen eines Geschäfts mit Corona-Schutzmasken Klage gegen die Bundesregierung eingereicht. Nach einem Bericht der "Bild"-Zeitung (Samstag) verklagt er Gesundheitsminister Jens Spahn (CDU) vor dem Landgericht Bonn auf annähernd 5,5 Millionen Euro.

The longer he's in his position, the more suspicious it becomes...

Spahn, der mit seinen 40 Jahren bereits fast die Hälfte seines Lebens im Bundestag verbracht hat, beherrscht die Mechanismen der politischen Eigenvermarktung wie nur wenige andere. Hauptsache, die Lautstärke stimmt – und das, was beim Publikum hängen bleibt. Trotz vieler Zweifler hat er immer wieder politisch davon profitiert. Spahn kann Lautsprecher, Spahn kann Kampfkandidatur – und eines Tages möglicherweise auch Kanzler.

Das ist die eine Seite des Gesundheitsministers, die öffentliche, die politische. Die Seite, die es notwendig macht, auch die andere Seite des Jens Spahn zu erzählen.

Die nennen seine Anwälte privat. Seit den ersten Berichten über Spahns neue Berliner Villa haben sie sich große Mühe gegeben, diese Sicht der Dinge gegenüber Medien und Gerichten überzeugend darzulegen. Deshalb darf t-online bis heute den konkreten Kaufpreis nicht nennen. Der Minister hätte, im Gegensatz zu seinen markigen politischen Positionen, über die Immobilie gern gänzlich Stillschweigen bewahrt.

Recherchen von t-online legen nahe: Seit Beginn seiner politischen Karriere verfolgt Spahn eine eng mit seinem politischen Vorankommen verflochtene Investment-Strategie. Sie begann direkt mit seinem Einzug in den Bundestag. Seitdem profitierte der Privatmann Jens Spahn immer dann finanziell, wenn auch der Politiker Spahn einen Karrieresprung machte.

Mehr noch: Ohne seine politische Karriere, die er strategisch plante wie nur wenige andere, wären seine zahlreichen Investments wahrscheinlich kaum möglich gewesen. Interessenkonflikte hat der Minister dabei stets bestritten.
