Jan 15th 2011 2:06PM CERTAINLY "Purple Haze" for # 1.Just FABULOUS stuf ( and I'm a Brit).
Maybe Mick for # 2.
I met 'Keef' and Ronnie in a hotel bar once.Chatted for almost an hour.
Keef is actually dead but nobody's told him.
Ronnie is a really super guy.
I'd have put Bowie's "Heroes " in there somewhere.
Dec 16th 2010 11:45AM What about "Awesome". (pron: "Ossum")? Just DREADFUL.
Isn't there ANY other superlative in the American language?
If there is I have yet to hear it.
Nov 22nd 2010 2:36PM No Welsh Normans?
Better let Strongbow know then..........
Nov 22nd 2010 2:32PM Obviously an oversight, Mark.
Nov 10th 2010 9:30PM An amazing bloke,"Keef".
I met him and Ronnie (a truly delightful man) in a Tokyo hotel bar about 12 years ago.We chatted for about half an hour - Ron kept insisting that I stayed, saying he was "Just bloody happy to hear an English accent".
"Keef" is all skin and bone; his handshake feels like a fish skeleton. I suspect that he's actually dead but that nobody's told him.
Best rock band EVER, though; as I told them both.

Complete rubbish. I'm a Brit living in the USA and will come back as soon as I can.
Nice place to visit, and I'll always visit, but educational standards are pitifully low and the total lack of a social conscience is simply appalling.Selfishness reigns supreme.
And don't even think about telling a joke that requires any thinking about. Not unless you like blank stares that is.
The best country on earth? Australia.By a mile.(Sorry,you Strines. Make that 1.6 kilometres)
Aug 28th 2010 7:49AM This whisky is produced in Norfolk;good grain country. And whiskey , note original spelling, originated in Ireland, as did west coast Scots ( Roman : Scotti)
The British Open is not only played in Scotland.
Apr 16th 2010 1:24PM As Brit living in America : They have a huge problem with satire - not knowing what its is and calling it sarcasm,which it is not. Similarly with irony.
I have only found one American who found Blackadder at all funny.I can think of nothing funnier.
Their biggest problem is their inability to laugh at themselves, surely the key to all good humo(u)r.
Humo(u)r here is largely of the babana skin variety. Schadenfreude rules OK.
And to those who talk of the UK's freedom of speech: Dead right.The press here is controlled by big business and the usual respose to reasoned argument is a tantrum,or worse.
After 40 yrear of travelling I have no doubts as to which is the finest country in the World : Australia. The "Fair go" attitude and irreverence towards Government is just fabulous.
Mar 23rd 2010 3:23PM I'm with you. I bought my (now) 13 year old Taurus 3 litre 4 years ago as temporary transport but after 168,000 miles it just goes on and on.
25 mpg urban and uses no oil.
