I remember an interview I saw with Bob Seger once. Sports broadcaster Bob Costas had a brief stint as a late night talk show host on NBC before Conan OBrien took over the midnight time slot after David Letterman. Bob Costas asked Bob Seger what prompted him to write his favorite song "We've Got Tonight." Seger told Costas he was watching actor Robert Redford in the film "The Sting." Redford is lonely and he follows a young waitress home from a diner that he regularly eats at. Redford knocks on her front door and says to the waitress "It's late and I don't know anybody."

Boom, the line just hit Seger between the eyes "we've got tonight who needs tomorrow." A legendary song was born. I love it when songwriting masters reveal their precious little secrets like a map to lost treasure.

Kenny Rogers and Sheena Easton LIVE with their own version of "We've Got Tonight." I like different versions of famous songs. :thmup:

Neil Young "Cinnamon Girl."

Neil Diamond "Sweet Caroline." Makes me think of Wrigley Field everytime I hear this song or any baseball diamond for that matter.

Pure Prairie League "Amie." A great song that makes me think of a funny laser show episode based on the 1970's themed show "Freaks & Geeks."

Looking Glass "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)"

I woke up in a 'Blue Mood' and had to put on some T-Bone Walker, a favorite of mine on the guitar, and he was a pretty good singer too!

I also believe that's Dizzy Gillspie in the background of this video playing the Trumpet, another legend.

Eric Clapton "Wonderful Tonight" LIVE In Japan...

Tedeschi Trucks Band "Bound for Glory." I really enjoy studio jam sessions myself. The record producer inside of me is enthralled and fascinated by this whole process.

I just heard about a musician in America named Cecil Rodriguez who released an album in 1972 that sold like hotcakes in Africa, but barely sold any units stateside. So much for the millions he was entitled to as royalty earnings. The documentary itself is called "Searching For Sugar Man." I will definitely check this film out and I will wonder the next time I buy a CD on iTunes how much money if any the real artist actually sees in profit. A scary proposition here when you sit back and think about it and a riveting cautionary tale to heed and guard against.

Cecil Rodriguez, the monumental protest artist few people in America have ever heard of.

This is the 2nd to final scene in the film called "That Thing You Do," directed and starring actor Tom Hanks. A character named Guy Patterson is a percussionist who loves jazz and he mets his idol a musician named Dell Paxston in the 1960's. They jam together recording an original composition of Guy's named "I am Spartacus." The film is fictional and not based on anyone's life story at all. I just like to see creative juices come alive. I apologize for the sound quality here. Clearly, it was recorded off TV.

Drummer Sonny Payne 1962...
