Rock Honors: The After-Party You Won’t See


Our man on the scene, Steve Pavlopoulos, was delivering up-to-the-minute reports from Rock Honors: The Who (which taped this weekend) on what you’ll see this Thursday, July 17th at 9 pm on VH1. Check out his behind-the-scenes look at what went down on rock’s front lines. The above shot is from Saturday night’s festivities — check out more shots for a sneak peek at the show.

After a big night of some good-natured, post-work partying (Sunday morning, the hotel lobby was abuzz with talk of the “robe party” that rocked the 18th floor –- all I’m at liberty to say is leopards and zebras know how to bring the fun), I was back at work running around, carrying things, sitting in chairs, and taking care of business…
The Flaming Lips rehearsal definitely delivers on the fun scale. They are a great fit to tribute the Tommy years and their own visual style mixes nicely with that period of the Who. I’m not really sure what I can and cannot reveal, but if you know the Flaming Lips, I’m sure you have a pretty good idea of just how good they are going to be. There will be celebration, there will be jumping around, there will be a general sense of unadulterated joy (Oklahoma style). Whether or not there will be fuzzy animals on stage I can’t say, but if they’re in need of any good leopards and zebras, I think I may be able to help them out on that front.

    Wayne Coyne absolutely SUCKED! I can’t believe he’s the lead singer for any group, and he’s especially horrendous trying to copy Daltry.

    Spike, you must be high. The Lips rule and Wayne was not trying to copy Roger Daltrey – he was paying tribute to him.
