Desert Trip radio On Now

Sirius Channel 26 is 100% artists from the Desert Trip.  If you don't know what I am talking about The Desert Trip takes place over the next two weekends in Indio, CA at the venue that also hosts Cochella.  The groups performing are Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Paul McCartney, The Who and Roger Waters, formerly of Pink Floyd.

Marty (husband) played golf with one of the kids that will be working concessions at the three day event.  He said the concessionaires  would all be sleeping on one big tent- I am very happy we have a hotel package.  A great big tent party does not sound like fun to me....

The concessionaire did tell Marty that concert attendees need to buy whatever they want as soon as they see it as they expect to sell out everything quickly.  So I am changing our plans to go over to the venue as soon as it opens on Friday so we can buy a bunch of stuff.  I have been to concerts and the lines to buy stuff are horrifying.....You can stand in line for an hour to buy a tee shirt and when you finally get to the front they have sold out the one you want.  I am imagining that everyone attending this concert will want a tee shirt to prove they were there.

I have heard that to get within a mile of the venue you have to have a wrist band that is activated.  Depending on your seat you may also need to have a lanyard with your actual seat assignment.

Today I will touch on the two artists/ groups for Night number 1,  Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones.

Bob Dylan, born Robert Allen Zimmerman, born May 24, 1941 in Minnesota.  Same birthday as my brother, just not the same year.  Dylan's top selling albums were:
1.  Blood on the Tracks, 1975
2.  Desire, 1976
3.  Love and Theft, 2001

His top selling singles were:
1.  Like a Rolling Stone, made it to number 2 in 1965
2.  Rainy Day Women 12 and 35, made it to number 2 in 1966
3.  Positively 4th Street, made it to number 7, 1965
4.  Lay Lady Lay, number 7 in 1969
5. Knockin' on Heaven's Door, number 12 in 1973
6.  I Want You, number 20 in 1966

Dylan sold a load of albums, I see anywhere from 35 million to 100 million depending on who is counting.  Dylan won a Grammy, A Golden Globe, an Academy Award and is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Wow- I think my post may be a little long today...Rolling Stones- Also on night number 1.  Top Albums:
1.  Sticky Fingers- 1971
2.  Exile on Mail Street-1972
3.  Let It Bleed- 1969
4.  Beggars Banquet- 1968
5.  Some Girls-

Chart topping singles include:
1.  Miss you, number 1 in 1978
2.  Angie, number 1 in 1973
3.  Brown Sugar, number 1 in 1971
4.  Honky Tonk Women, number 1 in 1969
5.  Ruby Tuesday, number 1 in 1967
6.  Paint It Black, number 1 in 1966
7.  Get Off Of My Cloud, number 1 in 1965
8.  I Can't Get No Satisfaction, number 1 in 1965
9.  Start Me Up, number 2 in 1981
10.  19th Nervous Breakdown, number 2 in 1966
11.  Emotional Rescue, number 3 in 1980
12.  Jumpin' Jack Flash, number 3 in 1968

Rumors are that there will be some collaborations of the different artists and that there may be some appearances by acts not listed.  I have heard that Eric Clapton may be joining The Rolling Stones, who really knows.  I am just watching the buzz.....

The Times They are a Changin' By Bob Dylan
"Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'."

Love, Ya-Ya
