And for those that think they've hit the wrong thread - Não é um problema, Agradecemos o tempo para fazê-lo. Eu preciso verificar eu não estou falando de lixo também! Até logo - translates as:
Not a problem, We appreciate the time to do it. I need to check I'm not talking trash too! See you later. (according to Google).

Which doesn't move us any closer to Arthur Lee - but hey ho !!!

I'm struggling with English, never mind Portuguese.

A type of alcohol may be of assistance.

Although I will never admit it in public - my type comes from the grape - usually from the red berry - and often plenty of it (but only after a certain hour).

Having said that - the odd gallon (or so) of beer has been known to pass my lips once in a while.

Not the berry, but the grain. I'm partial to both myself.

Jim Morrison to Arthur Lee

Think is purely an aside but it shows there's history between the two if nothing else....

Originally released at the tail end of 1967, Love's third album made the UK Top Thirty the following year (and would eventually be hailed as a masterpiece) but, by then, their reputation in the US had been eclipsed by their labelmates the Doors (who Lee had convinced Elektra to sign even though they were reticent).

This rather rankled with Lee, even though he had been the one who had convinced Holzman, the Elektra boss, to take a second look at the Doors. "Jim Morrison used to sit outside my door when I lived in Laurel Canyon," Lee told the rock writer Barney Hoskins. "He wanted to hang out with me, but I didn't want to hang out with anybody."

In 1969 Lee nearly died of an overdose. "I didn't like h....n," he said, "I went a different way. Some friends of mine found me dead. Luckily, they were paramedic types who knew what to do to save my life. I mean, I was lying in the bathtub, blue."

Jim Morrison was not so lucky with his bath and overdose tableaux in Paris.

Jeez!, talk about fate. Fascinating facts there Al. I often wonder, what if Jim Morrison had a lived longer, what would we have heard?

There's a club involved again in the connection, and don't forget the alcohol connection.

OK, folks here is a little brain tickler for you. I can't remember with C&R if you are meant to link the last answer to a new one. So, apologies in advance!

James Taylor to Abbot and Costello

Slipping cleverly into the void....

Arthur Lee to James Taylor

Arthur Lee's middle name is Taylor. Correct!

I trust this serves? Now on to MC's....

Anyone on the case? It's not a simple one. Are nocheese and Carra still about this thread?
I will give a clue or two if nobody can venture a link.

nocheese says:
Hi MC, I'm still about, Carra pops up from time to time. Just haven't had time to give this one my full attention yet, so hold back on the clues for a while :)

nocheese says:
OK, here goes:

James Taylor played the title role in Randy Newman's 'Faust'
Randy Newman was a scriptwter on 'Three Amigos', which starred Chevy Chase
Chevy Chase was in 'Memoirs of an Invisible Man'
'Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man' starred - ta-da! - Abbott and Costello.

James Taylor was married to Carly Simon, who recorded a version of, 'Take Me Out To The Ball Game', which is performed at some stage, during a lot of baseball games. A great comedy sketch on baseball 'Who's On First' was of course performed by Abbott and Costello.

Wow, I didn't think one could possibly link James Taylor to A&C in any other way than my links. Just goes to prove the ingenuity shown by you guys!
But I'm afraid they aren't what I'm looking for.

nocheese says:
Neither is this, I suspect, but here goes anyway:

James Taylor starred in 'Two Lane Blacktop' with Dennis Wilson; a biopic about Dennis Wilson, called 'The Drummer' has been talked about for a couple of years, and is possibly now in production, featuring Aaron Eckhart as Wilson; Aaron Eckhart also stars in a film due for release next year called 'I, Frankenstein'. Abbot and Costello were in 'Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein'.

Jeez! I like that nc.

Another possibility:

James Taylor performed "A Change Is Gonna Come" in the TV series 'The West Wing', which starred, John Spencer, who was born in Paterson, New Jersey. Also born in Paterson was, Lou Costello, of Abbott and Costello fame.

In the film The Time Of Their Lives, starring Abbott And Costello, the rhyme 'a soldier and a sailor, a tinker and a tailor' is used.

Just keeping the tablet warm.....

James Taylor recorded a version of 'My Romance', which was also recorded by the great Ella Fitzgerald, who made her big screen debut in an Abbott and Costello film, titled, 'Ride 'Em Cowboy'.
