No place like it.
(And, yes, I know I’ve posted this video a million times. There’s a simple reason: It’s the greatest video ever made, and Ranveer Singh is a fucking Movie Star. How has Marvel not hired him?)
…but I’m getting into Neil Young.
(Although I didn’t need to “get into”
Freedom. I played the shit out of this record in high school. Hell, my band–A Bunch Of Guys From France–even covered Rockin’ In The Free World, but that may have been due to how few chords were in the song.)
Maybe you will, too. That cover art grabbed you, didn’t it?
Masayoshi Takanaka is Big In Japan, and insanely prolific. Check out his discography:
Which title’s your favorite?
The Rainbow Goblins is the obvious answer, but I’m going with Gaps! Why so excited, Masayoshi?
If you can, just keep on. No one told you it wouldn’t hurt.
Hope all you rootin’-tootin’, six-gun shootin’, frown-on-pollutin’ Enthusiasts from Texas are getting by. If you’re stuck inside and looking for something to read,
here’s some great history from Lost Live Dead about the Dead’s relationship with the Lone Star State.
And if you need something to listen to, try this:
11/23/73 from El Paso County Coliseum, where–shockingly–they actually played El Paso. Other songs are performed, as well. (I have no memory of this particular show, tho I’m sure I must have listened to it a few times. But it’s a ’73, and you know what they say about ’73.)
Join me, if you’d like.
And here’s something neat: Stevie sans hat!
Remember, Enthusiasts: The tragedy of Male Pattern Baldness can be cured! Just be a Bluesman, and you can get away with wearing whatever ridiculous hat you choose.
(Gotta admit: I thought he’d be waaaaaay balder.)
This is Bob Seger (and his Silver Bullet Band) live at Cobo Hall on 6/15/80.
This is not Bob Seger (or his Silver Bullet Band), but don’t hold that against it.
LISTEN TO THIS SHIT.
This is a YouTube-to-MP3 ripper that’s been working well for me, and it’s free. The file gets added to your computer as one big chunk instead of as individual tracks, but I mostly use it for live shows, and you’re supposed to listen to the whole damn thing.
For those of us of a certain age (old as fuck), this is never coming out of our heads. Dementia, decapitation, come-what-may: This is in there for good.
