From what I hear, they're doing two countries in their next tour.


Good luck getting a ticket.

Did C.W. Stoneking ever do Honky Tonk Woman?

I can't recall, but he sure could dance

that dobro sounds an awful lot like a banjo - too much Hokum

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








The Ikettes?




Why isn't Keith Richards on the 100 fittest man list (oops must be doping)

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?

Had a friend, big country and western fan, who swore the best song the Stones ever did was
"It's All Over Now" because it was just so Country!
--paul roehl

Two people immediately agreed, nobody offered to play it.

Here's the most country-sounding version I could find of this oldie that dates back to the days when the Stones first appeared.


zBrown, you crack me up!

It was Harding who claimed to be Bo's bro!

Country singers don't even do country anymore.

That is the strangest W Jennings song I ever heard. Just doesn't seem quite right.

At my last piano lesson, we were flipping through a fake book when I spied Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys, which I thought was rather odd. My teacher had never heard or heard of the song.

So she played it in a jazz style. It was very interesting.

Was Richard really ever the fifth Beatle?

One of many fifth Beatles.

McCartney said it was Brian Epstein.
Harrison said it was NY dj Murray the K.

Anyway looking back, judging from the photo of Penniman's head, I have no idea why someone gave him the moniker Little.

And let's not forget the Best fifth Beatle, Pete.

Marlow's video cannot be played in the USA.
Bob Wills It.
Must have to do with royalty payments...

The Pete Best Band raises another question?
Who is the second Best drummer, I'd like to know?
