Although Michael Shelley is an old, and very dear friend. I don't think I've ever referred to him as "my darling" I think a little something was lost in translation.

Thanks, @LB. Found a 1974 LA Times article mentioning it as one of the places where "Pretty People of Marina del Rey...Dress[] the Part in Marina del Rey."

Well, Loneliest Monk, you can pretty well pronounce Cyrillic as Greek, except for some of the letters that we'd render as diphthongs in Roman.

Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 11:24am Hughie Considine:

Before there was Yoko, there was Ringo. The arrangement on Meet the Beatles, with Ringo on a slightly lower plane from the other three, was deliberate. Robert Freeman, who also took the cover shots for Rubber Soul and Help!, confirmed this: “He was the last to join the group, he was the shortest and he was the drummer.”
  11:25am Dean:

Another LAT article, 1970: "Donkin's Inn, 14130 Marquesas Way, Marina del Rey. Open daily from 11:30 to 2 a.m. Sunday from 10. Dinner served to 11:15, Friday and Saturday to 12:15. Reservations honored: 823-4551." Also, "The restaurant is deliberately informal, so that you may dock your boat or park your car and come right on in." Just love poring over old newspapers.

And if it happens to be Russian, chances are good the word is French or slightly modified French, a legacy of Peter the Great. If not French, then it's probably from Greek.

Sometimes, especially on radio, that kind of interview can be revealing, in its own way.
  11:38am Listener Robert:

I missed it, which Chris was that?
  11:39am HumilityJane:

Chris brought back the dark side of the downtown music snobs of the late70s/early 80s. "Cool" yet competitive ..and not particularly female friendly.

The "Nervous Breakdown" joke.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:53am mariano:

No, everyone knows Clarence was the 5th Beatle: vimeo.com...

But that's not the craziest theory I've heard. That one would have to be the conspiracy theory that Theodor Adorno wrote all the Beatles' songs as a way to get Western youth to take drugs and turn to communism. Because, you know, the Beatles were such ardent Stalinists.

Wasn't there a Texas group in the wake of the British Invasion who spoke with British (or "British") accents, tried to pass themselves off? Also, remember Ministry's early incarnation as a UK-style new wave band, with Jourgensen singing in an affected (and somewhat androgynous) English accent?

  4:58pm Mark in Toronto:

I think the whole Bernard Purdie thing has to do with one of those "Live at the Star Club" type albums ie one of those tapes of the Beatles in Hamburg that had really bad sound. So the owners of the tape hired Purdie to punch up, or play along to the tape, so that's how he came to "play" with the Beatles.
