Red Right Hand

If there isn't already a law against the maximum approach velocity of one's hand into a handshake, there ought to be one. And guys, if you find your arm-shoulder swinging by more than a couple of degrees to the right just before a handshake, you are probably overdoing it.

BTW, anyone remember the name of the comicbook detective with the bone-crushing handshake? Rip Kirby, was it? It was definitely one of those 1940s-style noirish strips.

Ohgod yes. You tell them Krishna. Morons! For someone with small hands it is particularly painful.

ph: would love to, but that might involve shaking hands with some of them.

Injuns (both kinds) are wise - either the peace sign with the palm out, or the 'Namaskar'.

Couldn't agree more, JAP!

So, what's the answer to that last rock quiz? Did Bonzo use Jagger's mobile studio?

MT: Andy Johns was the man responsible for "capturing" the opening drum pattern on "When the levee breaks" and he was the engineer for the Stones too.

Between him and his brother, Glyn Johns, they pretty much worked with EVERY major band - beatles, stones, Zeppelin, van halen, television etc!

MockTurtle said...

Hmm.. I was sort of close. Led Zep did hang around Stargroves and rent the mobile studio from the Stones. This may have been where they bumped into Andy Johns who engineered there. (Thank you Google of course)

MT: ah, that famous mobile studio hat was famously burned down one famous December morning :D

km said...

"mobile studio THAT...", not HAT

MockTurtle said...

Well actually that was a casino that burnt down near where the studio was parked. Fortunately "But with the rolling truck stones thing just outside"
I believe the actual bus is somewhere in Canada today (Thank you Google again)

I don't mind the "arm-shoulder swinging by more than a couple of degrees" as long as I can get a firm handshake out of the other person. Give me a bone crusher even...but, oh god, please spare me the limp handshakes. They just kill me!

And, oh, hi there :-)

km said...

Tom Joad: Is that YOU? Oh my god. OK, high-five but no handshake :D
