TBH I stayed out until now because I thought his entire list was unimpressive, it almost feels rushed tbh.

Glad I'm not the only one LOL.

"What is Prog?"-verslibre


Mellotron or GTFO.

You've not read Rick's two Grumpy books. They're hilarious.

Hi,

I have the largest collection of English humor you will never know ... Rick is 3rd rate! Sorry.

I would never consider him before Spike, Peter and Harry or Pete and Dud, Jonathan Miller and the others that became history of English Theater. The Bonzo's were magnificent and then when Neil Innes went to Monty Python, you got even more ... 

Grumpy is not a comedian ... sorry!

I guess that's confirmation you've not read his two books. They're aren't transcriptions of comedy routines. The books consist of stories from his musical past, and if you think they aren't the slightest bit funny, you may want to have a physician check your pulse!
I don't think anyone's putting Rick in the same league as professional comics (although I've seen him twice and he is a very funny guy, I'd rather listen to his jokes than those of some people I could mention). His story about being mistaken for Richard Clayderman is hilarious, as was his telling of being whacked in the face by Trevor Rabin's guitar.

He's just picking his favourites, not making a grand statement about the greatest rock songs of all time (something I strongly suspect he would not have much interest in doing). The guy's entitled to like Status Quo, y'know. So what if it's only rock'n'roll?
Soldato of the Pan Head Mafia. We'll make you an offer you can't listen to.

The tale of his chicken dinner being picked at by the other Yes-men (minus Howe) who were all doing the fake veg shtick was funny as hell. And his former guitarist Anthony, who could play a guitar but do little else right. And then the "Religious Bridge" and the chain-farting. LOLLOLLOL

Rick needs a biopic!!!
