Might have something new on Friday, 4/28.
Thanks guys. "Velvet Bulldozer" indeed.
How about a bump for one of the "3 Kings of Blues".
Just avoid a person with habits that drive you crazy. Other than that, people are great.
Happy Anniversary, SL! Have a great weekend. Are you back here?
Prince's estate prevailed in court this week in a lawsuit to stop the unlicensed, unauthorized release of some unheard material.
With Metallica in Mexico.
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.
Why was the loss "a blessing" for BC?
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!
Fleck didn't get oars, and didn't win any tholes either.
Summer 2017 Ritchie has 4 shows scheduled -- London, Manchester, Glasgow and Birmingham.
He plays the festivals some years. Last year, it was the Monsters of Rock shows. In Germany and UK, mostly.
"Whiskey and You" is another good one, JK.
From one of Rainbow's festival shows last summer. Entire concert footage from many of the shows can be found on youtube.
But, that's not a prerequisite.
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".
Seminal country rock album.
Good stuff, LY. First started listening to John Cougar, his 3d album (2d in the US) when it was released. "I Need a Lover" "Small Paradise" "A Little Night Dancin'". Really a great album that has become overlooked.
Good memories, indeed.
Sparty, I didn't feel all that wise lugging those record crates from move to move -- especially after the advent of CDs.
Not me. Your comment bumped it, Major. But, thanks!
Still have this in the original red vinyl.
