@David: He wouldn't be the guy referred to in The Beatles "St Pepper's LHCB" song, would he?

You got it in one -- but it was sort of a twisted tale. His real name was Mark Burkinshaw -- at high school we started to call him "Billy Burkinshaw" -- then thsi became "Billy Shears" after the character in the Beatles album, and eventually we dropped the "Billy" and he was known to everyone as "Shears" (apart from my dad, who used to call him scissors).

@Antedeluvian: There are several singers whose voice is like chalk on a blackboard to me. Principle amongst those is Robert Plant singing with Led Zeppelin. I just can't take it.

And I thought we were friends! LOL

@Max... "my best friend, Billy Shears..."

He wouldn't be the guy referred to in The Beatles "St Pepper's LHCB" song, would he?

"So let me introduce to you
The one and only Billy Shears
And Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."

Did he ever get ribbed about that while he was still with us?

Re Led Zep....unlike my fellow Zimbabwean Antedeluvian I am a big Led Zep fan and would love to have seen this concert.   (Aubrey - don't hold it against me :-)   "Tangerine" is probably my favourite but it's probably the shortest song they ever did.  Think it's off LZ III.

I bet if a young Robert Plant were to be transported from the mid-1970s to the present day and entered in one of these competitions, he'd be thrown out at the first round because his vocals were just so different.


There are several singers whose voice is like chalk on a blackboard to me. Principle amongst those is Robert Plant singing with Led Zeppelin. I just can't take it. It took me till 1992 to get to hear "Stairway to Heaven". I have several oldies stations on the presets in my car and every time they play Led Zeppelin (which is way to often) I switch channels. I often wander if I could put a negative request in- when someone requests Led Zeppelin, my request would cancel it out!

Following close is on my chalk-o-meter are Rush and AC/DC

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
