TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

There is nothing that inspires a daydream like a cool song. A few weeks ago a friend asked me if I had heard the new Carla Bruni song. As if Carla’s not dreamy enough, “Chez Keith Et Anita” is about a rock ‘n roll super couple, Keith and Anita Richards, who are this week’s Idelic Hour muse.

After weeks of late nights surfing the web for the hippest bands making the scene in Austin for SXSW, it’s been refreshing to think about…well, to think about “Keith.”


I know Johnny Depp may have taken his admiration for the man a bit too far and too public, however this is still Keith Richards, a living, breathing symbol of all that is cool in rock ‘n roll. From his boots to his haircut, and even the rings on his fingers, this guy is one bad ass motherfucker you gotta love.

Now, what about Keith and his chick? I don’t understand French, but a close look at the translation of Bruni’s ode to this couple makes it clear—this couple (and this song) are so fucking amazing, I am set free to dream. I created this playlist that ponders a lifestyle beyond our wildest rock ‘n roll dreams.

In cars, the Batignolles / In Istanbul, Avenue du Roule / Or on an atoll in the crowd / It is where you can / At Notre Dame, on the edge of tragedy / A Macao A Birmingham / In a pub or in a tram / It is where we can. / But I’m not a not there / I’m at Keith and Anita / This is the morning / But it is not lying my faith / Someone rolls a joint, / Oh no thank you I n’fume not / Someone plays Chopin / We at Keith and Anita / Someone plays Chopin / We at Keith and Anita / Yes

One motherfucker of a man and one of the coolest songs of the decade! Dig It!
