From Burt Ward's wiki page...

 

At the height of the series' popularity, Ward recorded several musical tracks under the production of Frank Zappa. The first two, "Boy Wonder, I Love You" (which Zappa wrote) and "Orange Colored Sky", were released as a single on November 14, 1966. Two other tracks from these sessions, "Teenage Bill of Rights" and "Autumn Love", remain unreleased.

  You dont like the original version of a song because it is better.  You like it  because it the one 

you heard first.

I can definitely attest to that regarding Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds because I heard Elton John's version first and I like it a lot more than the Beatle's version. Then again, I was never a big fan of theirs.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

And she's really become quite the hermit, as well.  She rarely leaves her estate, preferring instead to make music in her (I'm sure) amazing studio.  

 

I've always liked her...

Yeah there's some imprinting that goes on I think that's especially prevalent during our teen and young adult years. We tend to hold the most affection for the soundtracks of our youth.

 

But while, for example, I have generally preferred Elton John's versions of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Pinball Wizard" more than the original versions, I have come to really appreciate the originals' compositions and arrangements as I've gotten older and more analytical of music.

Cheech Marin auditioned to sing for Zappa in 1967 (Rueben and the Jets time frame) but then scooted off to Canada to dodge the draft. Up in Canada he meets Tommy Chong.

New book reveals band's style was influenced by Swedish laws that allowed cost of outfits to be deducted against tax

The glittering hotpants, sequined jumpsuits and platform heels that Abba wore at the peak of their fame were designed not just for the four band members to stand out – but also for tax efficiency, according to claims over the weekend.
 
Reflecting on the group's sartorial record in a new book, Björn Ulvaeus said: "In my honest opinion we looked like nuts in those years. Nobody can have been as badly dressed on stage as we were."
 
And the reason for their bold fashion choices lay not just in the pop glamour of the late 70s and early 80s, but also in the Swedish tax code.
 
According to Abba: The Official Photo Book, published to mark 40 years since they won Eurovision with Waterloo, the band's style was influenced in part by laws that allowed the cost of outfits to be deducted against tax – so long as the costumes were so outrageous they could not possibly be worn on the street.
 
In 2007 Ulvaeus was wrongly accused of failing to pay 85m kronor (£7.9m) in Swedish taxes between 1999 and 2005, and went on to successfully appeal against the decision.
 
"I am of course very happy that I have been informed in writing that I have always done the right thing concerning my taxes," he said after the court victory.

Knowing Gene, he's probably refiling all his old tax returns now for any Swedish shows they did.

When Kim Fowley died, his last wish was for his cadaver to be featured in Girls & Corpses Magazine.

 

That's probably more EW than WOW.
