I am leaving to the UK for ten days today and will have limited ability to maintain my blog till I return Sepbember 2nd, 2009 but I will do my best to write any time I possibly can and will be back up and running before Labour Day.
I’ve been doing this since April 23rd, 2009 and have been writing two to three full length posts a day as well as plenty of smaller ones -a ridiculous pace and inevitably with my own fair share of crap ones. Elsewhere David Adams, I would assume in disagreement with my negative take on the Moody Blues, commented “That’s just your opinion. There are very many who would disagree” and it is hard not to think he has a point. Actually, it is the only point. This is my informed opinion, to paraphrase Manic Street Preacher’s: this is my truth, tell me yours.
Before I leave: John Denver wrote “Leavin’ On A Jet Plan”. Jim Burton, the former Presley “Taking Care Of Business” band leader, was Denver’s musical director and he was also the band leader when I saw Jerry Lee Lewis play one of the great sets of all time at Tramps (I wrote about it elsewhere: essentially, for an hour we called out songs and Lewis played em). The next time I saw Lewis, Burton wasn’t there because he was at John Denver’s funeral. Denver had died a coupla days before in a plane crash.
