      Santana Rocks!

      Carlos Santana does rock indeed JPPT & his wife Cindy Blackman is 1 of the best drummers on this planet too. She's incredible with sticks in her hands. She truly is. 

       

      I wonder what the odds are on 2 iconic musicians hooking up & walking down the aisle? It must be extremely rare. They seem like down to earth cool everyday folks too. When they tied the knot, I smiled. No, I wasn't there BTW. I wish. LOL! 

  2. This is called the new thing "Gone but Not Forgotten" as for people that have passed on. Will put them up as first one of course Princess Diana!

     

     

     

  3. We interrupt albeit briefly over on the Disco to remember the Day the Music Died 59 years ago. And remember Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and JP "The Big Bopper" Richardson. Plus the forgotten victim, pilot Roger Peterson

      No, no, no, we're not done with Buddy yet, Let's "Not Fade Away" into the sunset just yet...

       

       

      I love the percussion playing in this live version as well as the 'bop, bop; bop, bop' chorus refrain. 

       

      "Learning The Game" of love & life is never easy. Sigh....Is there a cliff notes version? Ah man.

       

       

      The Bluejays dazzle us with Buddy Holly mainstays once again. I like it!

      Video montage time boys & girls....Same song I know, but sweet photos though...

      This is vintage 1950's rockabilly guitar playing by Mar T Music.

       

      Reminiscent of Buck Owens stuff & the Bakersfield, CA sound actually. 

       

       

       

      I really like the emotional intensity of this cover of "Everyday" sung by Amelia Wallace. 

       

       

       

      Buddy Holly rest his soul would be moved by this tribute because it's just so authentic & stripped down.

  4. Anybody Going to Watch the Solar Eclipse a Week from Monday? Just wondering! Not a fan of stuff like that but know some on this board are!

      Good one GFB! When the teacher what can you tell me about the milky way? I raised my hand & said "it's a decent candy bar but the caramel always sticks to my teeth though."

       

      Remember: F stands for Fantastic & A stands for Awful. At least, that's what I kept telling my folks at parent/teacher conferences on my behalf anyway. haha

      SW1- Sorry but I had to SNICKER at your response!  

  5. Another Pope Culture Song of the 1960's....

     

    "But What Could I Do, I'm Lonely Too

    And It Makes Me Feel So Good To Know

    You'll Never Leave!"

     

    BTW it is now in my head LOL!

      my mom has an ipad for fun. But I know what you mean. Some people spend more time starting at their electronics than they spend looking at people. My kids are like that

      Nadine: Same here. If the kids are not good listeners it is frustrating. I have to make them stop and look at me. Especially for important things.

      Be back next week with another clue.

  10. How many of you are CD collectors. I have at least in between 60-80 CD's. As most people are going to I Pods and other tech stuff. Just wondering.

      I prefer hard copies. Digital is too easy to lose. But I have digtial too

      Gramz I feel your pain on stacking those boxes. I have several boxes in my storage room with CD's. I keep a selection in my cabinet of discographies to artists by the decade that get the most playing through the stereo.

    4. southwest1

      southwest1

      I've never really counted them actually. I have a little bit of everything: CDs, records, cassettes, & an 8 track player that still runs. Yeah, shelving & storage becomes a real issue with extensive vinyl collections no doubt like Gramz & Bogie so aptly stated. I miss record stores actually vs streaming & downloading on computers now. A tornado I survived in 84 destroyed a ton of good stuff I accumulated over the years.

  11. Olympic Closing Ceremonies On Now!

      All in all, I haven't enjoyed the Olympics that much in some time. China was just two weeks of reminders that they intend to take over the world. More unsettling than entertaining, and I was rooting against the host country in every respect. These games were exactly the opposite.

    3. MIColtsFan

      MIColtsFan

      104 medals for U.S.! Amazing talent, Congrats to all of the athletes, I have much respect for them all in all of the disciplines! I'm sure the closing ceremony was pretty cool live, the show is staged for a big live production, but ends up a bit wierd on TV.. loved the live recreation of the PF album cover! That was cool.

    4. BNS

      BNS

      I sure hope Brazil works on it's Opening Ceremony in the next 4 years....if last night's preview was any indication, I'm not sure I can stay awake for it in 2016. The London games were great and the opening a closing ceremonies were entertaining...doesn't hurt to have musical legends in your backyard to come and perform. Really enjoyed the Queen performance and I had to DVR the Who and will watch tonight.

  12. No offense but I can't stand horror films. Never liked them at all. Just really would get nightmares.

      "Life is short; Watch a messed up movie." If I'm messed up to begin with, does watching a horror movie make me a better person then? LOL! Just goofing around Bogie. :) I'm not mocking you just myself buddy. I respect you immensely. You know that.

      Thanks for your kind words on my behalf JPPT. I tend to dominant threads & status updates I enter. Sorry about that. I'm trying to step back, chill, & not do that so much anymore. It's a work in progress.

      JPPT1974

      Unfortunately Nadine it was not. As really sad that he died like that. Yoko Ono whom I am not fond of but that is another story, you had to feel bad as her husband was brutally shot. And Ruston Rifle it was indeed way too senseless. 

      The man who killed him went all the way from HI to NY just to kill John L.

      Hey there JPPT, I always enjoyed "crystal blue persuasion" & "Spinning Wheel" as iconic songs.

       

      I almost wish Carlos Santana would put his fingerprints on those numbers live & make them his own on stage. Santana's wife, Cindy Blackman, is one of the best percussionists in the world too. Santana has a distinctive signature sound that I love & never grow weary of, his band is amazing....

       

      Anyway, wonderful music selections as always. :thmup:

    3. southwest1

      southwest1

      Yeah, Bryan Adams did crank out smash hits in the 80's & 90's no doubt about it. He's pretty solid on romantic, power ballads too giving Bon Jovi a legitimate run for his money competition wise. 

       

      Always glad to see & hear some jukebox classics from you my friend. :hat:

    4. JPPT1974

      JPPT1974

      You all are more welcomed. As love cranking them out for you all. To tie you all over until football season begins!

  17. Watching CNN Special Report on Charles Manson. 45 Years ago that happened. Really guy and his followers were beyond wackos. Even horrifying to yours truly!

      Supposedly, the Beatles song "Helter Skelter" told him/them to do it. Hung out with the Beach Boys, wrote songs...probably has no remorse.

    3. JPPT1974

      JPPT1974

      There was a TV movie on the Beatles song of the same name. The person that played Manson was way too convincing if the original movie.

      FOOTBALL!  Actually daughters had their friends for dinner last night - 15 including me, wifey and kids of their fiends.  Today recovery and football.  Then prep for tonight's dinner with two daughter's and their boy friends.  Tomorrow night is with neighbor and her cookout.  I guess I need to set my scale back 15 pounds!

      Going out to moms tomorrow, she will have the usual - a huge Turkey, huge Ham, Mash Potatoes, Mac n Cheese, and Green Beans from the crockpot. Glad we have 2 games tomorrow and they should be great ones in the Ravens at Steelers and Broncos at Chiefs. Reminds me of Thanksgiving. I am off tomorrow and Monday. Merry Christmas everyone.

      You are right 100GFB. There were a ton of gridiron games on TV this Christmas Eve & Christmas day. I'm almost exhausted from watching it all & there's still MNF on ESPN tonight. 

       

      Okay, maybe it's just all the food, eggnog, & goodies I stuffed my face with man. LOL!

      LOL! That's great 100GFB. You're supposed to eat too much, spend too much, & drink too much on holiday my brother. Otherwise, what's the darn point of going on vacation in the 1st place right? 

       

      Wink; Wink. Glad you had a good time with no mug shot necessary. Just Kidding!

      I hear ya JPPT. The best thing about going on holiday is this: 

       

      You get to do what you want when you want on your own time table even if that's just chillin'...

       

      No deadlines to meet, no meals to prepare, just sip a cold beverage & say "I'm in heaven right here." :D

      I agree about the crap JPPT. My son watches it and it is the most mindless fodder ever! Sometimes I just sit and look at it because I can't believe what I'm seeing. One show has a penguin, a donut, and toast as characters. The toast was throwing up out of it's middle. Bizarre.
