Dennis Diken's avatar View Dennis Diken's profile Options

Step into Denny’s Den to give yourself a little lift as you make your way through the busy day. Or take a break and make the world go away for a while. Dig on platters a-plenty, from The Chantels to Del Shannon, The Small Faces to Jimmy Reed. And so much more. Maybe some Basie and Kenton? Relax. You’ve earned it!

Conflict with the Harmonica Rascals
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm Dennis Diken:

that's for real, yes G?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm Gaylord Fields:

That was my understanding
Avatar 2:27pm Reechie:

Barry Wom was a character name. John Halsey from Patto played on the record and in the movie.
Avatar 2:27pm Reechie:

Short for "Barrigton Womble"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm Gaylord Fields:

John Halsey (a really good drummer and member of the band Patto with "fifth Rutle" Ollie Halsall) played drums on Lou Reed's Transformel album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Gaylord Fields:

*Transformer
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Matt Clarke:

I love when Felix and Eddie sing together ie Love Is A Beautiful Thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:28pm Dennis Diken:

thanks Gaylord, that seems to ring a bell. and thanks Reechie. yeah, Halsey's a great player and actor
  2:29pm spurn:

And Ricky Fataar from The Flame was the guitar player!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm Dennis Diken:

yes spurn, you are correct sir!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Gaylord Fields:

All the Rutles sang and played their roles except for Eric Idle, who was ghosted by Ollie Halsall or guitar/vox.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Dennis Diken:

that's pretty impressive Gaylord
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm Matt Clarke:

Eric just did his doe eye impression. And he did it well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Gaylord Fields:

Haha, Matt, I'm sure Ollie did not possess that most important quality in playing "Dirk"!
  2:35pm pinto bean:

Denny’s Den means no sleeping at the desk this afternoon!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:35pm myron feld:

Anyone here watch "Inspector George Gently" series on Acorn or BritBox or whichever? His underling, Sgt. Bacchus (portrayed by Lee Ingleby) is very Eric Idlesque.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:36pm Dennis Diken:

you go pinto!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm Dennis Diken:

myron, don't know that series, sounds cool tho; spurn do you know it? sounds like something you'd dig
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:51pm myron feld:

Dennis, it's really good. Set in 1964-68 in the Newcastle/Durham area. Great clothes. There's even a Northern Soul murder episode!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Dennis Diken:

myron - sounds up the proverbial alley, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

This is a raving fave!!
