Casi Angeles to Israel this October

Dedicated to my daughter Hila who is a big fan of Casi Angeles...

Kurt Cobain fight

In the middle of a live show , Kurt does a stage dive.

the crowd holds kurt up for a couple of seconds..

Then they push him back to the stage, and they shove kurt hard into the bouncer and the bouncer and Kurt fall onto the stage, I think the guitar might of accidently clipped the bouncer during that.

So the bouncer is got angry about that he just got clipped and starts pushing Kurt in the face while in the crowd, of course Kurt returns with a guitar hit.

Later , Kurt said that he thought the bouncer was another crazy fan who was trying to attack Kurt or something .

You may notice while the bouncer was "making sure Kurt came to no real harm", he pulled kurts hair rather violently, and then kurt hit him over the head of the guitar.

My Sweet Lord

Actually George Harrison was a man of great interest in Buddhism and Hare Krishna.

He brought the Sitar to rock and roll.

Tabla's and other Indian instruments.

And, if you hear the first words he said they are Hare Krishna.

I respect George Harrison no matter what.

Everly Brothers - Nice Fmily

Watch the Everlies sing their hits 'Wake up little Susie' and 'Should we tell him' in 1958.

51 years ago!

This was written by the husband and wife team of Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, who wrote most of The Everly Brothers songs in the '50s. Their songs were also recorded by Bob Dylan, Elvis, and Buddy Holly.

This is about a young couple who fall asleep at the drive-in, realize they are out past curfew, and make up a story to tell Susie's parents.

Some Boston radio stations banned this because of the lyrics. At the time, staying out late with a girl was a little controversial.

For The Everly Brothers, this was the first of 4 US #1 hits. It also went to #1 on the Country & Western charts.

At an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show while campaigning for President in year 2000, George W. Bush was asked by Oprah what his favorite song was. He said: "Wake Up Little Susie - by Buddy Holly."

Simon and Garfunkel played this at their 1981 concert in Central Park. The live recording was released as a single the next year and hit #27 in the US.

Chet Atkins played guitar on this. Atkins, who died of cancer in 2001, was a Nashville musician who created a distinctive sound using a 3-fingered picking technique.

Iran Revolution - Rare Pictures

A fraudulent election took place in an already fraudulent government.
The supreme leader and his buddies, including Ahmadinejad ignorantly and very indiscreetly manipulated the votes on a drastic scale, betrayed the Iranian nation, and angered the people.
They are fighting to the last droplet of blood for victory .

Cliff Richard - 60's Idol

Cliff Richard is my mothers best singer from the times she was a teenager...

This is a class song, way ahead of its time, and Cliff's finest moment..
The use of brass is astonishing and the production superb...
Great tribute to 60's pop...

Another great song that has stayed with me right through my life from childhood!
Young Ones, they don't make shows like that anymore...

Please Release Me

42 years have passed since this song introduced Engelbert to the World of Music.
This video is at least twenty years old, Enge never does a live show without including this song, and we all wait to hear it once again, even though it signals the end of that night's performance.
At 73 years of age, he has a packed schedule this year, touring the world to sing his songs, and fans wait with open arms and hearts, for his arrival in their world.
A Special Artist, and such a nice person.

Some guys have all the luck

Ashton Kutcher managed to snag up the hottest women in the world--and convinced her to marry him.

He writes, "For me it’s about relearning that supporting my wife isn’t about providing $ (money) and home, it’s about supporting her desires, needs and emotions.

"Greatest lesson in my marriage: Don’t try to solve her problems, just..

Always somewhere

Often categorized as a Hair or Glam band of the 80s, Scorpions were actually one of the most influential of Metal acts and did rock very hard for many years with several albums under there belt.

The 70s had been a golden period for the band, particularly with ace guitarist, Uli Jon Roth, whose Hendrix inspired soloing and gothic riffing gave much depth to the material.
Albums like "Virgin Killer' and "Taken by Force" are essential parts of any Hard Rock collection. Even after Roth left good albums were still being made including Lovedrive(with UFO'S Michael Schenker guesting on guitar) and the classic Metal of "Animal Magnetism" and "Blackout".

The band has given alot to the genre but is generally known for there period post-1983 and the release of "Love at First Sting" which featured there biggest hit in the form of classic riffster, "Rock You Like a Huricane".

Not surprisingly that opens this greatest hit followed by 70s track, "Loving You Sunday Morning".
That's also the LAST of the 70s tracks, the rest devoted to generally weak ballads and wimpy rockers.
It's nice to see classics like the heavy, "The Zoo", "Blackout", "Still Loving You" and "No One Like You", but after the first half dozen or so tracks, nearly everything else is syrupy, bubblegum rock from a band out of ideas.

The band has made better and HEAVIER music, trust me. So do not take this as just your only link to the band if you wish to learn more about them, instead skip it.

Arrive at seven the place feels good

No time to call you today

Encore till eleven then chinese food

Back to the hotel again

I call your number the line ain't free

I like to tell you come to me

A night without you seems like a lost dream

Love I can't tell you how I feel

Always somewhere
Miss you where I've been
I'll be back to love you again

Always somewhere

Miss you where I've been

I'll be back to love you again

Another morning another place

The only day off is far away

But every city has seen me in the end

And brings me to you again

Always somewhere
Miss you where
I've been
I'll be back to love you again
Always somewhere
Miss you where
I've been
I'll be back to love you again

Reflections Of My Life

One of the great songs of the 70's.

This song played in a documentary on Viet Nam in the early seventies.
It was about Company C, the men of who refused a direct order to march down the middle of a road (ordered to by an idiot OCS officer Im sure!).
They told the officer that no way were they going to walk down that road, that they should stick to the jungle.
At one point they were taking a break laying around and this song was playing.
It really gave you a sense of the futility of the Viet Nam war.

I wish more of their music had made it to the states.
"I See The Rain" is one of their terrific songs that never made it across the water--listened to only by music esoterics like myself.

Sunny Side Up - new sound in the desert

This album is fabulous and more soulful and even reggae undertone sounds amazing!!!

Paolo Nutini is such a feel good singer...

I am just waiting for worlds tour dates.

The flute and ukelele bounce of "High Hopes" is the quirky standout.

Playing this album just like his last will follow me through the rest of this summer!

Bonkers - Everyday it's a day dream

Love it, Dizzee just knows how to keep his head above water.

Rap is dying and he's making a smooth getaway to techno and he does it oh so well.

Dizzee started out as grime but he's past that now.

It's natural evolution - grime doesn't sell.

Maybe he'll makes grime tunes again after this album, but who knows that's his decision.

Don't Stop The Rock - Cadbury

This song was written produced by pretty tony as were trinere and debbie debb.

He was the man back in those days.

I think Freestyle was a band he invented just to get his music out there.

Freestyle music was very much a producers medium like disco back in the day and how hip hop is now.

This add is for the chocolate of Cadbury ...
