  3. Came on today on the local classic rock station. Just tooling around when it played which was ok. Reminded me of some things.....But when they followed with Adam Sandler and his whiny voice, stupid shit which he make's $ off of, In went Lemmy,RIP, and cranked up the Ace Of Spades........

  4. Every year....wouldn't miss it for anything. One Thanksgiving I had about 8 of my best friends who all smoked cigarettes in the back of my Rocky Goodtime Van {TM} to listen to Alice's Restaurant. Damned neart suffocated!

    Discovered the song when I was a teen. Listening to the radio in my room on thanksgiving. Thought it was the funniest thing ever and love to hear it every year. Sandler can't hold a candle to it.[​IMG]

    Every year. I’m also close to Stockbridge and drive thru town from time to time, the Berkshires and NW Connecticut are my old stomping grounds.

    You should try to play it on guitar, it's pretty busy. I mean the way he plays it. And it goes on and on for 18 %#!!ing minutes. I saw him live and in concert once and found he doesn't play it very often, and that concert was no exception. He did play the Pickle song.

    ...it was merely OK the first time I heard it....I also have a clearer idea of Guthrie's politics now...

    When I entered Nam at Bien Hoa, the px/ mess hall was called Alice's Restaurant! It puts that image in my head every time it's played or mentioned.

    It's on YouTube iirc. It's ... difficult.. to watch. I think perhaps drugs may have been involved at some point or another.

    Forgot all about it. Love the song but can't hang in there through the whole thing. Had a Bob Dylan playing while in the shop.
