Q: What do you call a guitarist who breaks up with his girlfriend?
Q: How can you tell if there’s a rockstar drummer at the door?
A: The knocking sounds like the drum solo from a Led Zeppelin song.
My daughter was doing a project on 70’s rock groups, and she asked me to name two of them.
“Yes!” I said.
“Who?” she asked.
“There you go, there’s two of them!” I replied.
At the end of a gruelling Beatles world tour, John Lennon was being chauffeured back to his home in a stretch limo. “You know”, he said to the driver, “I’ve never driven one of these, could I try it out?”
The driver could hardly refuse. So John settled behind the wheel and the chauffeur climbed into the back. Excited by this new experience, Lennon started to accelerate until the limo was topping 150 km/h. At this point, he saw the flashing lights of a police car in his rearview mirrors and dutifully pulled over. The officer looked at John and stepped back, “Excuse me, Sir,” he said, “I’d better call this one in.”
The officer radioed headquarters: “Listen Chief, I’ve just pulled over a really important person and I’m not sure what to do.” “Who is it?” asked his chief, “not the Governor again?”
“No, this guy is much more important,” said the trooper. “More important than the Governor?” yelled the Chief, “Who the hell is it then?”
“I’m not absolutely certain,” said the trooper, “but his chauffeur is John Lennon.”
Country vs. Rock
Driving home from church one Sunday, a father tuned the radio to a country and western station.
“How can you stand that stuff?” complained his 16-year-old son.
“It’s all about lonesome cowboys, gunfights and broken hearts.”
Knowing he preferred rock n’ roll, the dad asked, “Well, what’s your music about?”
“That’s the beauty of it,” the son said. “You just don’t know!”
Q: What did one Grateful Dead fan say to another after their pot ran out?
A: This band SUCKS, man.
