The EP was originally recorded in November 1978 at Fairview studios in Hull and self-produced by the band. Released in January 1979 through the bands own Bludgeon Riffola label, this was the EP that launched one of the most successful and critically acclaimed rock bands of all time.
I love board games. No one ever wants to play with me, but I'm a big fan of the classics. I especially love Monopoly. I have the original version and also the credit card one with the little swipe machine. The cards have security chips, ha! When I saw this music version advertised, I knew I wanted it! I love Queen. Now I just need to order this game... and find someone to play with me.
The architect of Rock n' Roll, Chuck Berry, has died. He was 90. A lot of our music heroes took to Twitter to pay their respects:
Chuck Berry was rock's greatest practitioner, guitarist, and the greatest pure rock 'n' roll writer who ever lived.— Bruce Springsteen (@springsteen) March 18, 2017
RIP Chuck Berry. One of my early concerts as a teen was seeing you. I was awed then and that feeling has never waned.— Duff McKagan (@DuffMcKagan) March 19, 2017
I am so sad to hear of Chuck Berry's passing. I want to thank him for all the inspirational music he gave to us. 1/3 pic.twitter.com/9zQbH5bo9V— Mick Jagger (@MickJagger) March 18, 2017
