From: Teen Angst

 

To: All the Young Dudes (Mott the Hoople). Mentions the Beatles and Stones (written by David Bowie).

 

Aside: With the possible exception of “Lothar And The Hand People”, I think Mott the Hoople is the coolest name for a R&R band.

 I don't know why this spoiler thing came up. I must have hit a button and can't figure out how to get rid of it now haha.  😆 

Shootout on the Plantation -- Leon Russell

 

"Junior and the drummer are fighting
About a woman in the neighborhood
Oh, the drummer never hit a bad lick in his life and Junior never hit any good
Yeah, the colonel said that women are for loving, not fighting, but that didn't clear the air, 'cause Junior's still living in the blackboard jungle with his Elvis Presley hair.

Yeah, the drummer's got the drum, the colonel's got the gun, and Junior's only got a knife, he'd better run
It's a shootout on the plantation, it's so hard to understand
Why do some people have to hurt somebody?
The firewater's not the villain.
Oh the last one to kiss is the first to shoot, and stabbing your friends is such a drag to boot
It's a shootout on the plantation
Oh, heaven help Mister Swan, yeah. (help me)

And the cold steel blade is shining
Enough to cause your blood to freeze
But the drummer is drumming a Rolling Stones' number on Junior's head and on his knees
Oh, Oklahoma's lonesome cowboys are turned on in Tinsel Town
I knew there'd be some cameras rolling if Andy was standing around."

 

 

This song off Leon's first album has long been rumored to be about an actual incident at a house in Sherman Oaks where a bunch of people from the Tulsa music scene were living/hanging out. There are a lot of different versions of what actually happened. One is at the end of this article: http://www.tulsatoday.com/2018/10/08/remembering-jimmy-junior-markham/

 

Tulsa is my home town and I've always been a huge Leon Russell fan, so this may not be as interesting to anybody else as it is to me, but I've always wondered things like "Who is Mr. Swan?" And this article at least answers some of those questions. Plus it does mention the Rolling Stones.
