TREASON NOODLES

Your Answer Is…

Hi, Treasonites!

Remember when you were told “If you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t say anything at all?”

We’re not sure that’s ALWAYS the best advice… but let’s go with that for this week’s “Your Answer Is…”

You’re being paid BIG MONEY to write an ad for this guitar. It’s GOT to be positive. It’s GOT to be nice. It has to be as “sunshine and lollipops” as possible.

So, someone says to you: “Say something nice about this guitar!”

ELM TREASON SONG OF THE WEEK

EYE TO EYE

This song is from our fourth studio album “THE VOICE OF TREASON.” This song has a bit of everything. Classical piano. A heavy-metal soul. A smooth, deep groove. A tight bass line. A guitar solo to blow the enamel off your teeth. And some tasty harmonies. ALL IN ONE SONG! 

DIG IN! Commit an act of treason.

4 YEARS AGO THIS PAST WEEK

An appellate court upholds a 2016 ruling that Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway To Heaven” did not infringe on the Spirit song “Taurus,” bringing an end to the lawsuit that was filed in 2014. The court also overturns the “inverse ratio rule,” which sets a lower standard for infringement based on how much access a defendant had to a song.

17 YEARS AGO THIS PAST WEEK

Boston lead singer Brad Delp commits suicide at age 55.

 

31 YEARS AGO THIS PAST WEEK

Beavis and Butt-Head, a show about two animated idiots who watch MTV, debuts on MTV.

Andy Gibb, whose three older brothers are the Bee Gees, dies of heart failure at age 30. Gibb had three #1 hits in the late ’70s, including “I Just Want To Be Your Everything.”

The Rocky Horror Show, which started in London in 1973, opens on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre with Meat Loaf playing both Eddie and Dr. Scott. It’s later made into a movie with Meat Loaf reprising his role as the motorcycle-riding Eddie.

 

56 YEARS AGO THIS PAST WEEK

Promoter Bill Graham’s East Coast version of the Fillmore, his legendary San Francisco rock ballroom, opens in the East Village section of New York City. Dubbed, appropriately enough, the Fillmore East, its first show features Big Brother & the Holding Company, Albert King, and Tim Buckley.

 

59 YEARS AGO THIS PAST WEEK

Eric Clapton, concerned that the band is becoming too commercial, leaves The Yardbirds. His replacement is Jeff Beck.

60 YEARS AGO THIS PAST WEEK

Billboard magazine reports that Beatles records make up 60% of all singles sold.
