  1. Search 'i want you around' into YT and the first video, or one by a user called GlamMetalSucks, is the one you want. To get to the Gibson, skip to 3:15 and 3:23.

  3. I would've done, but my (3 year old) Kindle Fire is buggering up and for some reason copy/paste doesn't work. Thanks for doing it, though!

    Rock and Roll High School is a classic. I should watch that again some time.

    RnR High School was a great movie, but it was a movie. One thing that for certain never happened in real life was Johnny playing an acoustic guitar live or on record. Pretty unlikely too is Dee Dee actually playing a Gibson around that time. In fact the only Gibson-style bass I ever saw him play was an ESP Thunderbird copy, and that was years later.

    Fun thing to notice though. Very entertaining flick.

    That few seconds of Dee Dee playing bass in PJ Soles' shower is one of the greatest moments on film for any punk band. Pure surrealism at its finest!
