    I would have loved to see Led Zeppelin in their prime. The best I could do was see Page and Plant when they toured together about ten years ago.

    Ladies and gentlemen, The Doors

    A little trivia question:

    What was the significance of “Mr. Mojo Risin” in the song L.A. Woman?

    I've got an idea...but I don't think the webteam would like it!

    Let's put it this way....Mr. Mojo refers to Jim Morrison...and the fact that he repeats it faster and faster refers to the Big "O" if ya smell what I'm cookin'.

    Default U2 is playing as I'm writing this!!

    The Doors
    Bob Marley

    Rolling Stones

    Queen (again, with Freddie of course)
    Led Zep
    The Beatles

    To name a few. If I could go back in time though, it would be to drool over Jim Morrison and it would have been awesome to see Bob Marley in concert.

    *sigh*

    Still have a chance for the Stones I guess.

    Medic Master could be correct. But I was also told it is an anagram for Jim Morrison.
