Some bands don't wait around for Weird Al to parody one of their songs, and take a pre-emptive strike and write a silly song of their own.

"'Dance Into the Light' album," Phil Collins
Nearly all Phil Collins albums (and some on CDs he's done in Genesis and maybe even Brand X) have drum machines. Phil is a multi-rhythm man - he likes to program a rhythm on a drum machine then top that off with HIS OWN playing on electric drums and of course his trademark SLAMMING on the acoustic drums. On this 1996 CD he does his usual drumming style of course but with heavier emphasize on eastern African rhythm techniques (and it gets frenetic, man!), A disclaimer in the liner notes states one clear thing: Phil literally plays ALL the beats HIMSELF here. It says, 'There's no drum machine on this one!'. Drumming scholars ought to listen to this CD and they'll see that Phil is one of the greatest drummers of all time.

"'No Jacket Required' album," Phil Collins
The liner notes of this classic Diamond-seller lists all the instruments played in the album and by whom. That also includes 'The Odd Keyboard' but the liner notes doesn't say what is. Anyway, at the bottom it tells you what it isn't. It says, 'There is no Fairlight on this record'. So if the album doesn't feature a Fairlight CMI synthesizer then WHAT kind of synthesizers are being used, and where and for what? Your guess.

"'Planet Earth' album," Prince
The cover of the CD uses an optical illusion. you can see Prince himself pondering over planet Earth (in a red-tinted outer space) and if you hold the CD casing package, the image shifts to the 'Love Symbol' he released albums under from 1993-2000,
Astronaut of Love
"'Planet Earth' album," Prince
The 'Planet Earth' does NOT list the track names anywhere on the CD or the digipack. You have to go to the Internet to find the track listing yourself.

"12-string bass guitar," Cheap Trick
Bassist Tom Peterson has a custom-designed bass guitar that features 3 thinner strings bunched close together instead of the usual 4 thick strings. He came my way at the edge of the stage and held it out and I ran my fingers down on the strings. Yowch!

"50 year + Anniversary tour," Rolling Stones
In 2012 the Rolling Stones kicked off their 50th Anniversary Celebration Tour and IT HASN'T REALLY STOPPED. They've been touring almost constantly, in legs. I caught them in 2015 on the Zip Code leg. Right now they are playing in Ireland and will be touring Europe this summer and fall. They've also been releasing 2 CD / 1 DVD sets of several shows out the yinyang, including the show in Havana that the Cuban government allowed them to do. They've also dropped a few new songs on the way and put out the covers album 'Blue and Lonesome' which took 3 days to record! And they've been touring on and on and on - they keep on rolling, rolling, rolling,...
