And to think, people are still giving Alanis hell about the misuse of ironic.

Below are lyrics pulled from The Who's new track, Mirror Door.

Howlin' Wolf and Ol' Link Wray, Dave Van Ronk and Doris Day,
Bobby Darin and Brownie McGee, Elvis, Buddy, and Eddie C.
Music makes me, makes me strong, Strong vibrations make me long,
Long for a place where I belong, You will find me in this song.


Notice anything wrong with the above list of now-dead-and-gone performers? One's still in the buffet line. Doris Day, at 82, is alive and smiling in Carmel, CA. When Pete Townshend was informed of this in a recent issue of Q magazine, he responded, "I was convinced she was dead."

Were you at the Fillmore in January of '69 when Zeppelin did that 13-minute version of 'Dazed and Confused?'


Thanks to Concert Vault, lying in response to that question just got a hell of a lot easier.

This site catalogs, and streams free of charge, Bill Graham Presents concerts from 1965 to the late '80s (The Band to Big Country) at venues like Fillmore East and Winterland.

Best part: the sound quality is amazing.
