Mike,
Glad you enjoyed the book. I agree about belittling other musicians; I think his attitude is that the Eagles, took the ball and ran; although they atered it some make it more mainstream. I like some of the early Eagles material and some of the later as well. They simply "FMed" it. I have ever thought much of Don Henley; he is a little too proud of himself.

If you haven't already, read Shakey by JImmy McDonough, Neil Young's biography.

I thought the Don Felder/Joe Walsh era Eagles were pretty good, but the early Eagles with Bernie Leadon were great. Desperado is still a great record from start to finish. It has a mood, or feeling to it that is hard to find..."21 and strong as i can be..." There's great three-part harmony, decent playing, and well-crafted songs. What's not to like?

I realize that this is blasphemy, but I think The Big Lebowski is by far the worst movie the Coen Brothers ever made (and I really like the Coen brother's movies). I actually walked out the first time I tried to watch it. When it achieved cult status, I rented it and suffered through the whole thing. Never again. Inane and pointless.

Good luck getting a ticket.

Did the Rolling Stones ever do Honky Tonk Woman with The Inflatable Dolls and/or Lance Armstrong?








The Ikettes?

This is Country. It is about Balitmore. No irony.

Take Bakersfield and write a song and call it country. Everyday thing. What gives? You would think that the first would be ironic. It's not. It's still country because IT SOUNDS COUNTRY. Labels are stupid. There should be a labelizer in our head which labels things for us automatically. I think there is. It's run by the Bush family. They're the labelizers. Or if you wanta go country, call 'em the STampers. Never give a inch. Pure country.

The Stampers, soon to become The Stamper. <br/>

You can take the city kid and make him country. You can take a country boy and turn him into some Rhinestone Cowboy.

Sometimes I lives in the country
Sometimes I lives in town
Sometimes I haves a great notion
To jump into the river an’ drown

I like Gram's idea. Rich as hell and still gotta be something else.

Here's a snapshot of the real CW and his peer group. Too much Haiku.

Real CW, wrong Dobro.

"No, you can't ever fake being weak. You can only fake being strong. . .”


He's cool Hank Stamper, a man who lost two fingers in a logging accident (his wife Vivian didn't find out until she takes off his gloves).

Never played country in Junta, just read.

". . .No, a book wasn't invulnerable to the appearance of its cover, not by any means.

Is there a source for this 'keith can no longer play the blues' rumor?

Oh well Mike. Ed, didn't like Repoman either.

Both works of Genius, in my book.

See you in a few hours, I hope

Keith said words to the effect that undersstanding the blues be essential to playing rock and roll or any form of pop.

Wherever he's at, it's the Country for Old Men Who Refuse to Give a Inch.

Mr. Richards' take on it (Mr. Jones (familiar - no?), seconding that emotion)




Was Jimi really ever a papa?




Was Richard really ever the fifth Beatle?



Was Bo really ever Don & Phil's brother?
