Who said Los Angeles has no history?
‘it’s not just about Nick, it’s about us’
obstructed by mythological stories
real late in the proceedings with Billy Cox on bass (and Mitch Miller back on drums)
Jimi and Petty cut price
“at least I’m not Pasek and Paul”.
There is so much talent on this page that it is ridiculous
‘who was your saddest celebrity encounter?’
Potash did an impressive amount of research, his 400-page book is riddled with characters and meticulous references, and his lecture was a very disturbing report filled with pictures of musicians in company of high-ranked CIA agents, army reserve colonels… Did you ever wonder why there was a colonel Parker in every photo showing Elvis Presley after he served the army?
The world is messy, my house, my room, my desk are messy, I constantly fight against the entropy of the world around me and each day I am losing the battle… but am I right? Should I even fight it?
Santana and Sha Na Na sure got shafted, and CSNY made as much as Arlo??? I’m guessing some managers got canned (heat) when these umbers leaked. Joe Cocker left a superstar, right? Was Sly really the only back act???
The riddle of Hendrix is not a riddle, all great musicians have a hole somewhere. We have glimpses of his youth, of what he left behind, and what he was doing, his nonchalent coolness to everyone, but we don’t have the image of what he was. Perhaps there is no way to find Jimi, where his love lives in, outside the music.
Well after a whole lot of back and forth with financiers and hot shots it was determined that this film would never be made- well it was but the harsh reality is this beauty is getting the ‘straight to DVD’ status. Sorta sad isn’t it.
‘I was very interested in what I could take and what I could do. I looked upon the body as a laboratory – I used to throw in this chemical and then that one to see what would happen; I was intrigued by that.’
According to this article, ‘traditional stringed instruments do not discriminate against left-handers at all, because the left hand (which performs the fingering, chords, etc) actually has the more difficult job, requiring most the dexterity.’ So would left-handers have an advantage?
He’d go to the toilet with his guitar, he’d make breakfast with a guitar. In an interview with Dick Cavett, Jimi expressed his, more than disinterest, worries about fame, about praise, about really anything that distracted him from what he was born to do: play the guitar.
This is the ultimate Ross song, and the most inspired use of the word
pussy ever, every verse works as a hook upon a hook upon a hook with Ross singing the hook on the space beat the beats – A
The Last Thing On My Mind – Tom Paxton – A folk great at the very top of his skills, composes a brilliant love song that’ll live forever – A+
All of the caveats you can imagine, doesn’t change that that is Lala singing “Da Do Ron Ron”, Charlie singing “Sweets For My Sweet” and yes, the real, the indominatable Ben E. singing “Spanish Harlem”. These are immortal pop tracks.
Just out of the army, back in the charts, this is Presley, not an album artist, best album: it has the breadth of masterpiece, blues, pop, rock and roll, hits and deep cuts, It sprawls its way on to the charts and Presley, in an alternative universe, was using this as a gate to a future and not a goal post.
