These Days: Thursday, May 26th, 2016


Illness: The Tragically Hip’s lead singer Gord Downie has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. In Canada, Gord is God, one of the most beloved singers of all time and he is going out on tour this summer, which also makes him one of the bravest.

The World: “Mawlawi Haibatullah Akhundzada is seen as a throwback to the movement’s core religious values and a possible figure to unify around after months of leadership struggle and violent schisms.”. Translation, that assassination last week was a set up.

Live: One dead, three wounded at a T.I. concert last night at Irving Plaza. I wonder how they got guns into the club? It doesn’t hit me as an easy deal but it goes to show that when they were wasting time patting me down and looking for contraband whisky bottles they should have been being careful.

More Live: Corinne was terrific, and Governors Ball is on its way… however, I am passing on the Monkees next week, I’m just not thrilled by the new material and the Monkees with neither Davy nor Mike is more like the Monks. Personally, I’d rather see Mickey solo.

Recorded: Thank good this week is nearly over. I have spent it listening to Chance The Rapper, who has usurped Beyonce’s position as the second best album of the year and, depending upong Kanye’s show at Governors Ball next week, will knock off Kanye as well.
