    Naw, the Pistols had it all over the Clash at that time, although the Clash has 'higher honor roll' classification. I saw the Clash in about 1980 in SF in some big hall and it was just a joke. Walked out...too over crowded and bad sound. But then those were the days of going from show to show and lookin' for chicks!

    Ok, I'll bite:

    Dizzy Miss Lizzy, as sung by John Lennon with the Beatles, from the Help soundtrack....with the awesome 12 string Rickenbacker lead from George....

    although they get kudos for the live Hollywood Bowl version, since there is no way they could hear themselves there....

    Both versions are great but that Hollywood bowl version has always made the hair on my arms stand up! Something about all those teeny bop girls screaming gets me every time!

    I've done this list in one take, so I missed something along the way. Yeah, I like Californian music from 60's very much, especially L.A. garage/surf scene.
    Thank you for remind me of some fine groups like Love, one of my L.A. fovourites along with The Standells & The Byrds wich I missed to add.

    More cool stuff at follow-up, so stay tuned

    I know, it has nothing at all to do with the topic, but your last post reminded me of this:

    Standels were the first guitar amplifiers that used JBL, (Lansing) speakers. These speakers were much costlier and much heavier than the cheaper and less efficient Jensens that Fender and Gibson were using, but were already standard in super hi-fidelity phonograph systems by the time that Bob Crooks put one in an amp in 1953. "It made all the difference in the world," is what Bob told me, "when I first heard that amp with that speaker in it, I said, That's the sound." Seven years later, after experimenting with almost every other kind of speaker, Fender finally relented and started putting JBL's in their top-of-the-line amplifiers too. Today, almost every brand of amplifier can be ordered with JBL's!!
    ". . . as you have no doubt noticed, no one told the 4345 that it can't work correctly so it does anyway."—Greg Timbers
