TO THE GROUND: Tune in to the fame game; GO2.
By all time greats I mean Led Zeppelin, The Doors, ACDC, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Junior.
Okay, maybe not the stars themselves, but some folk who are making a pretty good living from sounding just like them.
More of that later, 'cos there's some acts in town sure of rocking your world by being nobody but their sweet selves.
First up are the mighty Therapy?, straight outta County Antrim armed to the teeth with searing, surreal rock and hit records a plenty.
They're supported tonight at The Colosseum by the much talked about Co.Uk and Stateside big noises Clutch.
There's also the red hot R&B band Honey Boy Hickling and the DTs performing tonight at the Hare and Hounds Pavillion.
Tomorrow night at the Colosseum there's acid jazz funksters Cantaloop, backed up by the phat beats and rhythms of Fat Rhino.
Remember Dignity? Chocolate Girl? Relive those benchmarks of mid to late 80s pop at Warwick Arts Centre on Sunday when former Deacon Blue front man Ricky Ross brings his band to perform a selection of old favourites and new songs.
Wednesday sees the launch of the Mud Club at Generations, a weekly showcase of original bands kicking off with Eusebio this week.
On Thursday, as with all other Thursdays this month, you can check out the excellent Palantines, settling into their weekly residency at the Earlsdon Cottage.
And what about those? On Saturday there's Fred Zeppelin, described by promoters as "inimitable", which is some accomplishment for a tribute band.
They also say that "Blackie keeps everything going on rhythm, Kevin's a dream on bass, Steve's vocals keep you going all night and the talent of Keith on lead guitar is something else".
Other tributes include Doors copyists Man Zarek at Kelly's in Leamington on Saturday and ABCD at the same venue on Monday.
Frank, Sammy and Dean breeze into Leamington on Tuesday at The Royal Spa Centre with The Rat Pack Live From Vegas show.
Add to that list The Grind Creative at Kelly's tonight and Genius Breed at the same venue on Thursday, a Nags Head in Nuneaton line-up of Drivin' South tonight, Krack tomorrow, The Sugar Addicts on Sunday afternoon and Alien Outlaws on Thursday.
Chuck in blues merchants Red House at the Earlsdon Cottage on Saturday, Eye to Eye at The Rocket on Sunday and an informal jam session with musicians from Peterborough at The Earlsdon Cottage on Friday and it's a pretty good week.
