All Other Music is Temporarily Suspended #6

Who wants some rawk’n’roll to get their Monday morning off with a bang?

Here’s a song which attracted the attention of Tipper Gore and the PMRC when it was originally released as part of the “Purple Rain” soundtrack, covered by a band who were supposed to be headlining Glastonbury last year until lead guitar thumper Dave Grohl went and broke his leg when he fell off stage. I can’t help thinking such trivialities wouldn’t have stopped Prince, who seems to have been rumoured to be playing there for as long as I can remember. Ah well, rumour no more.


Foo Fighters – Darling Nikki

This year’s Glastonbury headliners are Adele and Coldplay, which is almost the same as the Foo Fighters, right?

And here’s the immaculately rude original:


Prince & The Revolution – Darling Nikki

By the way, it’s no coincidence that he called his band The Revolution.

More soon.

  1. CC….it’s not FFS who are the third main act at Glasto 2016 (if they were, it would go some way to saving it…….)

    It’s Muse – FFS.
