Description

Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show was a pop-country rock band formed around Union City, New Jersey in 1969.

"The Cover of the Rolling Stone" is a song by Shel Silverstein satirizing success in the music business. It was originally performed by Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show, reaching number six on the U.S. pop chart. It was the band's second single, and actually did get the band on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine — although in caricature rather than photograph.

BBC Radio refused to play the song, as it contained the name of a commercial publication (Rolling Stone magazine), and could therefore be considered advertising. The song was re-recorded and rush released in the UK as "The Cover of the Radio Times" (Radio Times being the name given to the weekly TV & Radio Guide published by the BBC), which did find its way onto playlists.

Looks like myspace videos have stopped working again, even on their own site. I contacted their support and reported the problem. I'll wait until I hear back from them. I'd hate to delete all those good videos so I'd rather wait a while longer. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Unfortunately, our tech team is only focusing on songs/videos uploaded within the last 3 years. There is no time frame of when media uploaded over 3 years ago will be fixed. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
