So we trusted you. Yeah we went and trusted you and took your suggestions, made them into a map – just like we said we would. We think it went pretty well. Thanks to Darcy for your No Doubt suggestion and Jasmine for your suicide suggestion. David and I are pretty sure that the Simpsons have never dealt with suicide so we had to go the long way around – as we do – and connect the Simpsons to the Simpsons by going as far away as possible.
There is a scene I try and re-enact during the episode, I don’t quite do it justice so here it is:
Along the way we touch on the Be-Sharps, the Simpsons based group which reflected the 90s Barbershop Quartet craze and then chat with Chris O’Dell who was on the roof of Apple Records the day the Beatles played their final rooftop concert. Her book Miss O’Dell: My Hard Days and Long Nights with the Beatles, the Stones, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton and the Women They Loved practically blew me away when I stumbled upon it while researching Wavy Gravy for our Concert for Bangladesh episode back in Season 1. If you ever wanted a fly on the wall vantage on many of rock and roll’s major moments in the late 60s early 70s – this book will do just that.
