The Oscars are Sunday night and even though real rock usually gets short-changed (and let’s face it, most movies about rock really do suck), your Blimp diner came up with The Ten That You Have To See: if you haven’t already, all of these are 100% Guaranteed to not let you down. Bible!

#10 “The Runaways” (2010, Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett: this actually works!) / #9 “Tommy” (1975, Tina Turner as The Acid Queen and Ann-Margaret rolling around in baked beans!) / #8 “American Graffiti” (1973, featuring one of the greatest soundtracks ever put together!) / #7 “The Doors” (1991, captures the spirit and essence; really underappreciated all around!) / #6 “The Wall” (1982, Roger Waters stirring tribute to Motherhood, ya think?) / #5 “The Last Waltz” (1978, possibly the best live concert put on film!) / #4 “Woodstock” (1970, the Peace & Love vibes are undeniable, plus Alvin Lee!!!) / #3 “Gimme Shelter” (1970, the Anti-Woodstock; this is really scary because we know how it’s gonna end!) / #2 “A Hard Day’s Night” (1964, one of the most fun ways to spend 90 min. of your life!) / #1 “This Is Spinal Tap” (1984, with too many cameos to mention and amps that go up to eleven!!!)

See y’all tomorrow morning (Sat., 3/1) for the Anniversary edition of the one and only WBLM Psychedelic Breakfast! Can you believe Psychedelic Breakfast is THREE YEARS OLD??? Amazing! We’ll be brushing off the original vinyl copy of “Blows Against The Empire” along with Deep-End-Chestnuts from the likes of Spirit, Monster Magnet and The Creation that you’re not gonna hear anywhere else! English muffins and Lady Grey await…
