Just avoid a person with habits that drive you crazy. Other than that, people are great.

Happy 70th birthday to the punk survivor, Iggy Pop!

Since last year's Grammy nominated Post Pop Depression, with Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age/Eagles of Death Metal/Them Crooked Vultures), Iggy has collaborated with Metallica, Danger Mouse, and New Order, as well as announcing a Post Pop Depression live album and concert film. This week he released an acoustic single "Asshole Blues". And, 40 years ago this past week, Iggy and pal David Bowie played the Dinah! show -- and daytime TV was never the same.

I have it on good authority that the fire was started by a disgruntled BC fan, and wouldn't have happened if they had won and attended the party.

Loved KW, capital of the Conch Republic. Sunsets on the rooftop bar of the La Concha Hotel were spectacular. Local seafood is good most everywhere. Breakfast/brunch at Blue Heaven (eat in the outside yard, feral chickens no extra charge). Not kidding about the chickens -- you'll hear rooster crows everywhere as they are protected and flourish on the key.  If you're driving down from Miami, you might have lunch on Islamorada Key (MM 82) at the very casual dockside restaurant behind the Islamorada Fish Company (bay side). KW golf course is on Stock Island, just before you cross onto KW, and is fun (and windy). There's a day boat to Ft. Jefferson National Park in the Dry Tortugas, if you're interested in history. As mentioned, 6-toed cats at the Hemingway House, reputedly a genetic adaptation and advantage for shipboard rat catchers.

Have fun and congrats!

Nice post, KIYB. Mentioned a few days ago that Warren Haynes and Don Was have been touring with a 40th anniversary Last Waltz show. The last one was April 13 at the Orpheum in LA. Here's Taj Mahal doing "Shape I'm In". Plenty of vids of these shows on youtube. Enjoy!

Forgive the self-bump, but wanted to update Aaron Lewis' career. He has successfully transformed himself into a genuine country star. His last album, Sinner, debuted at #1 on the country charts. Aaron has been an outspoken promoter of old school, outlaw country, and critic of the new style country pop. Interesting RS interview from last year. Staind hasn't officially broken up, but they have no current plans to record or perform.

Happy Birthday to Aaron -- give a listen to the single off Sinner "That Ain't Country".
