Gotta be The Beatles, no? Do I have to bring tea to Yoko, too, though? 'Cuz that might be a deal breaker.
Perhaps you could 'lace' it with something?

HAHAHA!

Tea Boy - most definitely. It would be the title of my memoir, to be released in 1971.


Woe be unto the one that has to wash Keef's socks.

Hendrix, I'd be a master (and likely famous) luthier by 1970 with all that practice.  The rest would have been history.  Why am I even wasting time here with you bitches?
^^^This.  Fcuk Clapton & Blackie, the mind boggles over the ultimate parts guitar you could build.

But travelling with Sting everywhere he went in those five years of the Police would have been amazing.  What Stewart's doc "Everyone Stares" captures makes me think working for Sting would be the best of the gigs listed.

You don’t get the impression that he’d treat you like shit?

Ah ok. Very possible. Carrying Sting’s bags seems one of the worst though...not as bad as scrubbing Jagger and Richards’ undies but pretty close :lol:

I'm thinking access to Sting's cast-off groupies might be fair compensation for the abuse you'd take.  :P

With the Sting scenario - 'If I ever lose my faith in you', it'll be because I said 'don't stand so close to me'.
