One of These Daisies (Woodstock-MJ)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
OK, a long twisted band story. Back in '64, I was the sound guy and roadie for this California Hippie band. We would haul our stuff around in my VW bus, which had a big Daisy painted on the side. We were pretty messed up, but we had a great singer/songwriter/bassist when we started, called Roger Sidwater. He wrote a bunch of songs, and then wandered off and left the band right before we were going to make our first album.

We started off being called Cygnet 6 (because my name was Schwan/Swan and they couldn't think of a band name, but after Sidwater left, we looked at the big daisy on the bus, and Ricky Right (keyboardist) suggested "Petal", and David G. Shepard (lead guitar player) wanted to call us "Daisy". Dave was a total womanizer, and always referred to his latest conquest as his "Daisy". Ricky won the band name contest, and we were called "Petal", but Dave took our best song and called it "One of these Daisies"... because every time we started to play this song, he would yell out to the girls in the audience "One of these daisies is going to be mine!" The band thought it was sick, but we put up with it for awhile, since he was the lead guitarist.

We recorded our first album in '68, and came up with the album name "Petal to the Metal". The song "One of these Daisies" was the #1 hit on the album. After the album came out, the band squabbled over money and pretty much broke up, but in '69 we decided to travel to Woodstock and see if we could play our hit song there. We found Roger Sidwater and Ricky Right, but Ricky was totally shroomed out and could barely play 2 notes at a time on the keys, and had maintained his vicious hatred of Dave. We almost didn't live through that drive. But we got up on stage and tried to perform our song anyway. Ricky had sold his organ long ago, so he had to play a regular piano that was on stage. Dave was dripping with testosterone, as usual, and started the song off with his usual yell to the crowd. This always upset Ricky, but this time it drove him nuts. When Ricky had his solo in the middle of the piece, I had forgotten to cut his microphone, and he grumbled about Dave while he was playing and his voice broadcast out over the stage! This totally freaked Dave out and the band got temporarily lost, but Sidwater's bass pulled them back together to finish the piece.

I had a reel-to-reel running, and recorded this rather touchy performance, and recently found the tape, so here it is.

Our band broke up after that performance, but several years later, some other British band stole our song idea, and changed it slightly and put it on their own similarly named album (Meddle), and it did really well... sigh.

(PS - Some parts of this story are actually true)

Heehee
I love the band bio- it's fun to know what's really going on among the band members. I bet Dave personally checked his mic after this gig. Very cool intro to a Pink Floyd-ish tribute- sounds great! :-)

Behind the scenes
The drama that is lampooned in "This is Spinal Tap" is often painfully real, for those of us who dealt with the primadonna guitar player and singer. The PF tribute was fun to do, thank you for previewing, and I look forward to YOUR submission! (EG)

One of these daisies, I am gonna make you tell me the "real story" of your Woodstock. Since you were all of 8, maybe 9 years old...Hmmmm, I knew you were good but wow!!! You did a great job here. Who's sexy voice is that? Oh yes, must be Dave! :) Cool song Drak. You are such a whiz at making great tunes. Lots of fun as always.

How did you know?
Yes, in '69 I was 9. But in 74-76 I was the sound guy and roadie for my long-time best friend Dave S., who was lead guitarist and womanizer in a band he formed. We played a few gigs, then the band (Excalibre) broke up. Many many very funny and sad stories from those times. This is my tribute to those times.

And don't fall for the voice, Dave will just thrill you and throw you away, don't go toward the light, Gail! (OK, it was MY best impression of a sleazy Dave voice :-)

Thank you Feter for the bus ticket to Woodstock MJ, and letting me pull up and play! It is like, totally groovy man! Sorry about the band messing up in the middle there, Ricky really got Dave upset with his accidental comment. This was a lot of fun to put together... I had never done a fake crowd/applause edit before, that was educational! See you at the next party, Feter!

Oh Dragon-man, this is fabulous! As I told you in my pre-peek, I love how you nailed the crowd noise, love the bending notes, and this funny little sense that this is sort of an ode to "Amazing Grace" (in a minor key). Yes, Pink Floyd-ish - the back story is a riot. You're a genius!

Amazing Dave
Hi Karen,
its funny to look back on the chords and hear "Amazing Grace" as you point out. You also detected the two things that took the most time, getting the crowd noise sounding right, and bending the notes on the guitar to sound like a real lead guitar (except I intentionally overdid it to let Dave "show off".) Writing the story was a fun mixture of fantasy and reality. Thank you for sitting on the blanket and enjoying the show. Where's yours?

Yah, we had to cut the music short, because Dave was about to smack Ricky over the head with his guitar. :-) In truth, it was all I could put together in a few days... I'm pretty slow at writing music. I did try to make Dave's "announcer voice" sound really slimy and stoned, glad it worked. I like doing voices. Glad it entertained you, that was what I was hoping for!

the truth will out
well, I can admit that I never owned a VW bus, I hauled the band equipment around in my dad's Dodge Colt hatchback, of all things. But if it helps, I recently HAD to buy the DVD of Herbie the Love bug, because I still LOVE that movie (the original) and had to play it for my kids :-) Thanks for the listen and for suffering through my attempt to create a brain-dead-sounding keyboard solo, I did a bunch of tweaking to make it sound like it was played live by somebody with 3 brain cells left... and right at the end started cooking just in time to lose his place :-) I had fun writing the bio too, if you read back a bit, I explain what parts are real and not. Glad you stopped to listen!

I had a feeling you'd like the reference, the music, and the funny description.

Hmm... nobody's pulled over to give you a lift? I can't imagine why nobody has contacted you with a song to sing over yet... you'd be great! I hope something comes along soon, I'll be waiting here listening!

STOP THE VIOLINS!
Like, peace man! But like, gimmie that joint for a minute there Bob... look around man... there's no violins! This is a love-in, man! I think what you were hearing was Dave using his volume pedal on the electric guitar in the beginning, making it fade in on notes... he always liked that effect. We weren't rich enough to have a violin... just a cheap electric guitar and some fuzz/wah/volume pedals.

Oh, another true story: I even built a wah pedal for Dave for the band, back in my electronic daze... uh, days.

Hey Jack, roadies have a lot more fun (and stories) than the band! The sound guy is like the referee at a soccer game, doesn't matter what he does, everyone hates him. Thankless jobs! As for what parts are true, I answered most of that with Gail's response (and Guitapick.) Now you know a bunch more about me :-) I have lots of funny stories. Glad to share some here! Thank you for listening, and providing your own fun WSMJ music, I loved it! And I O.D.'ed on Pizza in high school, and could go the rest of my life without eating another slice, weird but true.

Love The Ride
... was that your bus I passed on Route 199? There's been quite a few VW busses on the road here, but I think i remember that big daisy. I was the guy on the ramshackle motorcycle with a big organ keyboard duct-taped to the sissy bar. (I missed the bus).

I love the haunting, bent notes that move around the bone of the piece like smoke. The backstory, going without being said, is priceless. A simply beautiful piece.
drakonis said 3466 days ago (March 25th, 2008)
Hey!
I almost pulled over when I saw you, because we NEEDED that organ for our gig! Dang, if I'd only known you were headed that way too. I was sort of wondering why a motorcycle would have an organ taped to the back like that... I thought you just traded in your girlfriend for a keyboard at the last town.

Thanks for getting into it, brother! I dropped some notes on your tune, and offered you a ride back if you need one!

No problem on forgetting your words, they are here in my brain, man, I got it loud and clear before you even thought them, man! And the answer to the question you planted in my brain is that "yes, there's one bag of potato chips left, it's in the back of the van under the seat (I hid it there from Dave.)"

back beat, back story...
It takes some special talent to write a TRUE story and have it be interesting, so I "embellished" a little. But I was indeed the sound guy in a band in high school with a primadonna casanova lead guitarist named Dave, who fought with the primadonna lead singer, as they both wanted THEIR sound to be louder than the other guy's... and I got to be the shoulder for each of Dave's cast-off girlfriends each week. Sigh, so glad I'm out of High School, now I have a daughter there, SAME high school too! Thanks for listening, and enjoying the Floydian references and faked-up LP artwork.

What's funny is that Dave actually lives about 20 miles from me these days, and I *almost* thought it would be great to have HIM do the voice and the lead guitar part of "himself", but then, he might catch on that he's playing an over-the-top version of himself, and bonk me over the head with his Les Paul.

Thank you for enjoying this humorous nostalgic romp back in time.

This sounds great!
Just the beginning remembers very strong to Pink Floyd. I remember a faboulos concert in Germany in Hanover where they played "Echoes". Similar feeling.. ok the crowd in the stadium was a little bit louder..

Very well done, but too short, I want more!

Thank you for sharing!

been to a few concerts...
I never really liked live rock concerts interestingly (but love live classical concerts)... but the BEST was when Pink Floyd played at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles about 18 years ago(?) and I was in the 6th row back from the stage, right under the inflated pig/speaker. They played Division Bell stuff, and smatterings of older stuff from Wish you were here, etc... I still vividly remember it. Ahhh...

Anyway, glad you stopped by and enjoyed me Meddling with these Echoes from the past... I had fun melting "One of these days" and "Echoes" together, and coming up with my own little piece based on that :-) I also had fun poking fun at the band dysfunction that often happens with my story-line.

Thank you for rewinding the clock and enjoying this partly fake rock concert. Yes, I have Gothic in my genes, it peeks out now and then. I think the "strings" everyone hears is the lead guitar at the beginning, when Dave does the ramp-up volume pedal on each note, so it fades in instead of having the strong guitar attack.

The crowd noises at the beginning made me think I was about to hear Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band! Very trippy music! These early band experiences (I just read Jiguma's) are wonderful to read, albeit somewhat painful at the same time... Anyway, nice job here, really enjoyed it! Wished it were longer.

Thanks for fighting the crowd
I am glad you could stop in and listen to one of my more tongue-in-cheek funny pieces (this was part of a huge group effort here on Macjams by "Feter" to re-create Woodstock on a modern on-line scale, BTW.) I'm happy to know you enjoyed the music and the effort I put into creating a somewhat realistic crowd ambience (except for the perfect silence during the performance.) Hopefully you'll sample some of my other (quite varied) offerings here and critique what you like/don't like, so I can improve. I look forward to more of your music as well.

well made
Good atmospheric song, good timings, and most of the song had clear, well recorded sound. I just feel that you can add a little more atmosphere except the wind on your solos, or making a back rhythm for supporting your solo plays.

I liked the style of your song and feelings in it, I must listen more from you.

Keep the good work on.

drakonis said 3422 days ago (May 9th, 2008)
Thank you for ideas
This music was created very quickly for a "festival" here on Macjams. Many of us made a piece of music to sound like it was performed "live at Woodstock", so this is sort of a "humor/joke" piece of music for me. But the music is probably worth working on some more to create a more serious piece? I will think about your idea for more "trippy sound effects" in here, and percussion (there is no drum track, I didn't have time to make one!) Thank you for the encouragement and ideas. I save these ideas with the music so I can update it. And I love YOUR music, and can't wait to hear your next piece.

then let's jump in the deep end! Thanks for romping in this virtual Woodstock jam with me... this was great fun to put together... and fun to bring back bits of my past into a funny story!

pushing up the "Daisies"
Pink Floyd meets Donovan...totally psycho-delic...or is it psycho? anyway, it's a cool piece!

What a combo!?
The whole idea of Pink Floyd-meets-Donovan is just as funny as this little Woodstock spoof! But I'm psyched that you dropped in for a listen and a comment, thank you! Now stop flickin' your Bic, and sit down for the rest of the show! ;-)

a lot of reminiscent fun
Hehehe... this was a lot of fun to pull off, and it was cathartic to poke fun at some old band-friends of mine (who hopefully will never find me here!) Thanks for enjoying the show, and I may have to dust this off and make a real piece out of it someday... but I should find a real guitar and bass player... do you happen to know anybody (hint hint, smirk)? Hope I can afford you...

This is wonderful...Daisys...i had a toydonkey named Daisy which I loved over allthe horses ! I feel dumb -My apologies Eduard, can't believe I missed this..!!! But its here & I'm lissening-many times now, really like the 'mood' in it a bit of melancholi, spark, adventourous.. Very fine tune ! Took hold of me ! ashame it stopped so soon so i got to listen many times ( : Your music tends to make ya want it to go on forever . . TX Drak, very much appreciated MY Pleasure ! PLR lena : )

My sweet Lena
thank you so much for the kind words... to have you say you wish my music would go on forever... that is one of the most wonderful compliments I've ever had. So glad the music caught you up in the sentimental moment. This piece started as a 15 second sketch several years ago, and for this Woodstock challenge I extended it to this "short" length. Someday it may become a real song, a little more serious, without the keyboard "Goof" in the middle there.

Thank you for listening and commenting, as always! I'm overjoyed to know that you like my music.
ttfn,
Drakonis

I'm hooked
Luv the tune, kind of dark. Luv the wind fx underlay.
Awsome song

hehe...
Well, this was a tongue-in-cheek half-real, half-made-up story and tune, done for an online challenge to sound 60s-ish... glad you liked the music and the faux-concert. It was fun to put together!

Fantastic
I wish that this went on for a longer amount of time.
It was grooving and it was going places.
It had an early floyd sound to it.

Great work

Just a snippet of time
Yes, this might have the makings of a real song... but it really is a bit too close to Pink Floyd's song "One of these Days", which I was intentionally parodying, so I'll leave it as is :-) I may have to do something totally new and original like this though.
