Missing Man Setting

“The Empty Chair”

By Captain Carroll “Lex” Lefon, USN (ret), on December 21st, 2004

“In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture.The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

As you remember.

The small, round table is covered with a white linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is white symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

We should remember.”

I did it my own self on Monday and Tuesday, Titan was just the mule, she don’t do “spreadin’”, lol. I stretched 400 pounds into six raised beds more or less, and have planted tomato sprouts in two and peppers in two. I took a break Wednesday to get some beans and sunflowers into the garden with the tators and onions and next week is corn and many more peppers. I was too sunburned today to do much more than water it all and have a beer at the American Legion.

The format known as Hot Country made its appearance in the mid-Seventies, gained ground in the Eighties, and began replacing rock and roll in the mid-Nineties. The purpose of the next few weeks is to explore the pioneers of Hot Country in the Sixties and Seventies, and follow them musically.

I doubt that songwriters Wayne Carson, Mark James, Eddie Rabbitt and Mac Davis were thinking Hot Country when they wrote songs for sessions in Memphis, Nashville and Muscle Shoals, or when they gathered at Wally’s Clubhouse in Nashville to drink beer and commiserate. But something happened when these songwriters crossed paths with producer Lincoln “Chips” Moman, who wasn’t thinking Hot Country either. Davis and Rabbitt would have major careers as performers later. James and Carson would make their mark and disappear, although Carson would record extensively but never score a hit.

A little anecdote will pave the way for understanding changes in musical trends.

In the summer of 1967, there was a battle of the bands in suburban Bucks County, just north of Philadelphia. Two noted residents of Bucks were roped in as judges: author James Michener, and bandleader Paul Whiteman, who had famously “made a lady of jazz” back in the Twenties. Michener was 60, and his musical tastes had never progressed beyond the Big Band Era. Whiteman was 77 and in the last year of his life. Michener admitted he was totally lost, so Whiteman gave him a fifteen minute crash course on rock and roll. Michener was flabbergasted that Whiteman understood and even loved this genre. Whiteman responded, “If I were a teenager today, I’d start my own rock and roll band.” Paul Whiteman, who had seen one musical trend succeed another for three quarters of a century, had kept in touch with changing times and had even played a role.

By the turn of the century, the sentimental popular songs and minstrel show tunes of the post-Civil War era were supplanted by ragtime and the two-step. This lasted barely two decades before Louis Armstrong and other pioneers brought jazz into public tastes after World War I. The Jazz Era, and subsets such as Swing, lasted a good 30 years before the Be-Bop movement turned jazz into something best appreciated by musicians and afficionados. Jazz had become too hip for its audience.

It took about a decade for a mixture of rhythm and blues, country, and pop to emerge into rock and roll and supplant jazz in the popular tastes. Elvis Presley provided a shot of adrenalin in the mid-Fifties, the Beatles in the mid-Sixties, and MTV in the early Eighties. But by the Nineties, rock had turned dark, the listenership had fragmented, and the music had gotten too hip for its audience. Black music had gone from soul to rap and hip-hop with its own urban listener base, and had turned dark with a hard edge in the process. It was time for something new. Paul Whiteman would have understood.

Country music had not stood still. Bill Monroe sped it up to produce Bluegrass in the Thirties, Hank Williams added elements of the blues in the postwar years, and Mitch Miller added production values in the Fifties. Miller’s role was important because it was he who led the Brill Building composers, profiled in previous entries, to cross the line between pop and country, making song writing fortunes in the process.

Chips Moman made his first splash as a producer at Stax Records in 1960 at the age of 23. Up in Detroit, Berry Gordy was making soul music accessible – and acceptable – to white audiences, becoming the Paul Whiteman of his era. In Memphis, Jim Stewart at Stax was aiming at a harder edged, more authentic sound. To showcase the voice of 18 year old Carla Thomas, daughter of blues legend Rufus Thomas, Moman turned to basic pop and created an instant classic.

Carla Thomas: “Gee Whiz”

In 1964, Moman and Stewart parted ways over money, and Moman started American Sound Studios in Memphis and a label of his own. Two years later, Moman tried his hand at producing country music and hit gold.

Say Goodbye To A Legend


Levon Helm 1940 ~ 2012

When I think of Levon Helm, I think first of poor Arkansas dirt farmers and prize fighters. After all, he spent most of his 71 years fighting to raise a good crop, before and after his so-called music stardom. I think of his struggles and fighting to make a living at his one true passion, making music, and I recall his fights with record companies, promoters and band mates over contracts. Levon Helm makes me think of lyrics to songs he sang with unknown authors listed simply as "Traditional", from gospel to blues, country folk to default Pop Hits because there was nothing else to call songs like Robbie Robertson's "The Weight", "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down", "Up On Cripple Creek", "Life Is A Carnival" and "Rag Mama Rag". The world had never heard anything like The Band in 1968 and those songs still pay Robbie's bills, but, Levon whose clever crusty crooning made them timeless classics received no songwriting royalities for them and that eventually led to a decades long tiff and the two friends refused to even speak to each other.

When I think of Levon, I think of The rockin' Hawks backing Ronnie Hawkins, the very strange bearded guys up in Woodstock New York at "Big Pink" and the guy who walked away in the middle of Bob Dylan's 1966 world tour because he couldn't couldn't handle the crowds booing because Dylan had gone electric.

When I think of Levon, I remember Elton John and Bernnie Taupin naming the song after him, "because he likes the name." The song is fictional, but, The Band was Elton's and Bernie's favorite group in those days (just listen to Elton's "Tumbleweed Connection" to hear The Band's awesome influence on Sir Elton). I recall that Elton John and his civil partner, David Furnish, named their son "Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John", as he was born on Christmas Day 2010 (just as Levon was born on Christmas Day in the song). It's just something I think of when I think of good 'ole Levon Helm, Elton never named a song "Drumbo". :(

Sometimes I think that had there never been Levon, there would have never been "The Band", and there may well have never been Poco, The Eagles, Crosby, Stills & Nash or the Ozark Mountain Daredevils. There's a lot to think about when I think about Levon.

After thinking all that, then I remember, oh yeah, Levon was a drummer. Well yes, but he was an amazing all around musician. He played guitar, mandolin, some banjo, piano, harmonica, Jew's harp and he could whistle melodies through the gap in his teeth like no one else I ever heard. And though he was proficient with his stable of instruments, he was never far from behind his drum kit and from there he sang most of the songs that made The Band famous. It was his rock solid drumming that got him his first gig with Ronnie Hawkin's Hawks and led to the gig with Dylan ... no scratch that, it should read "collaborations with Dylan" that came and went and spanned decades.

Levon's amazing skin smacking gained him a place in "The Big Beat", longtime E Street Band and Conan O'Brien bandleader Max Weinberg's 1984 book interviewing fourteen pioneers of rock drumming including Hal Blaine, Charlie Watts, Ringo Starr, Earl Palmer, DJ Fontana, Jim Keltner, Bernard Purdie, Dino Danelli, Kenney Jones, Russ Kunkle, and "Bad" Johnny Bee (Badanjek), et. al. I can tell you those are all heavyweights, Cheapskate can tell you those cats are the cream of the crop, Publius can tell you ...
but, most of you already know all that, we are talking Elvis, The Beatles, The Stones, The Who and about every other group that produced a hit record in the 60s and 70s. Levon's drumming was as solid as Hal Blaine's, as simple as Ringo's, as rockin' as D.J.'s, as swingin' as Watts, as funky as Palmer's and Perdie's, as technically correct as Keltner's and Kunkle's with all the flash of Dino and Johnny Bee and all while fronting The Band with the majority of lead vocals!

When I think of Levon, I think of his movie roles in "Coal Miner’s Daughter", "Fire Down Below", "The Right Stuff", "Lightning in a Bottle", "Feeling Minnesota", "In the Electric Mist", "Shooter" and a dozen others. When I think of Levon, I think of The Hawks, The Band, Ringo's All Stars, his collaborations with Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Emmylou Harris, Robert Earl Keene and of course Bob Dylan. When I think of Levon, I think there's not enough space of the Drumbo Server to host even a sampler of his discography or enough time in one weekend to spin all those tunes ... but I'm gonna try.

Tonight as I think of Levon, I think of his last great fight against cancer, how it's over, the Weught's been lifted and how he and Robbie Robertson recently reconciled their friendship after years of bitterness. When I think of Levon, I think of him singing "When I Go Away" from his last album and I believe he may have finally won his fight buckaroos.

Don't want no sorrow
For this old orphan boy,
I don't want no crying
Only tears of joy.
I'm gonna see my mother,
Gonna see my father,
And I'll be bound for glory
In the morning
When I go away.
I'll be lifted up through the clouds
On the wings of angels,
There's only flesh and bones
In the ground
Where my troubles will stay.


God speed and good rest, In peace, be blessed.


Levon
~ Elton John ~

I’m glad you brought up “Tumbleweed Connection”. I always thought it was one of the most unjustly neglected disks that EJ recorded. Badly underrated.

Investment Advice

April 21, 2012

“I want to help you invest wisely in your future.” That’s what the financial advisor said as he began his talk about investing in 401(k)s and retirement funds. He wanted his listeners to continue putting money in the stock market during all the ups and downs of the economy because historically a good return will eventually occur.

God wants us to invest wisely in our spiritual future as well. Through the ups and downs of life’s circumstances we should continually invest in a “spiritual account”: our character. The apostle Peter tells us to be diligent about character development (2 Peter 1:5-11). After we trust in Christ for salvation, we are to invest these qualities into our character: faith, virtue, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love.

The future returns on our investment in character will be godliness (vv.5-7), fruitfulness in the knowledge of Jesus Christ (v.8), assurance of our calling (v.9), and victory over sin (v.10).

Investing money in retirement funds can be profitable, but investing in our spiritual lives offers the best kind of return for our future!

Let us grow up into Christ,
Claiming His life and its powers—
The triumphs of grace in the heavenly place
That our conquering Lord has made ours. —Flint
Now is the time to invest in eternity.

Read: 2 Peter 1:1-11

If these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. —2 Peter 1:8
Bible in a Year:
1 Chronicles 24-26

With the possible exceptions of “Madman Across The Water” and “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, “Tumbleweed Connection” is my favorite Elton disc. The songs are throwback’s to a different time and were patterned on the template The Band pioneered. “My Father’s Gun” or “Country Comfort” could’a been Robertson songs and I’ve alway’s longed to hear Elton cover “Cripple Creek” or “The Night They Drove Ol’ Dixie Down”.
