    seem to recall reading many many years ago, that the Jefferson Airplane put their gold record for, I think it was White Rabbit in the bottom of their toilet bowel, at the house they had in the Haight Ashbury district

    Pointless.

    I'm all for blue plaques denoting famous peoples houses (I have one up the road from me) but where somebody wrote a song??

    I'm a big Jimi fan but I cannot see the point.

    Are they going to put up a plaque at Noel Redding's Mother's old place in Folkestone where Jimi first thought of "Fire".

    If they keep slapping up these blue plaques everywhere it will ultimately demean the whole object.

    Jimi already has a plaque that he shares with Frederick Handel.

    Here's a ridiculous one. Note it is not by English Heritage but some cheap people trying to cash in.

    Shocking tat.

    And then there's the other one, on the wall of the Gents public toilets across the road... :whistling:

    I think it's great. All I can say about it is Thank You.
    Just say his name........Jimi -- what does that make you think? He was my all time favorite music hero (even when he was here)

    And we see you've included a sample of the best thing that ever came of your efforts. You're a classless clod.

    So, I guess it may be a while, before we see any plaques commemorating The Chambers Brothers.

    But that's OK, I've got time...
