THE ELM TREASON NEWSLETTER NUMBER 73

SEPTEMBER 9, 2022

ELM TREASON TIDBITS

– A quiet week in terms of band news. Work on the new album continues.

Your Input: The FIRST!

Which artist, band or celebrity made your heart first go pitter-patter for the first time?

Andy: “My first crush was Daphne from Scooby Doo, but the fact that she was not actually alive was an issue… eventually. My first crush of an actual flesh and blood music star was Olivia Newton John. It was the first time I started getting urgent messages from my hormones (among other body regions). My first man-crush was The Fonz.”

Bobby: “My first crush was Lynda Carter. Wonder Woman. When she appeared in a scene on the screen it made me stand at attention – while I was still sitting down.”

Got to say it was my introduction to electronic music through Larry Fast’s Synergy LP decades ago. After that, I found Walter (Wendy) Carlos with Switched-On Bach, and evolved to Yes, Rick Wakeman, Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, and Alan Parsons Project. Changed my life forever.

Bill Boys

Peggy Lipton from the Mod Squad was my first crush.
I loved the Partridge family and Danny Bonaduce was only four
months older than me, funny and a cool character on the show, plus he was a musician,
so I became an instant fan.

Vincent Peteroy

Christie Brinkley
Blondie
Olivia Newton John
Farrah Fawcett
Lynda Carter
🤣🤣🤣

Ellen Hakala

Well, I guess it would have to be Elvis, but I had a huge crush on Heaven knows, Mr. Allison.

Lisa

My first crush was Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka. I think I was six or seven. The first musician I has a crush on was Bob Seger.

Shirley

Would have to be Bowie,you guys crack me upwith your crush descriptions haha
