    Ultimate Classic Rock ^ | May 23, 2020 | Matthew Wilkening
    Founding guitarist Neal Schon took to Twitter late tonight to announce that Randy Jackson and Narada Michael Walden will become the band's new bass player and drummer, respectively. He also confirmed the addition of a sixth member, keyboardist/vocalist Jason Derlatka. The trio join Schon, keyboardist Jonathan Cain and vocalist Arnel Pineda.

Walden is a renowned songwriter, singer and producer who has drummed in Mahavishnu Orchestra and alongside Jeff Beck, Tommy Bolin and...

    Rapper Cardi B says the people who broke into and looted stores in Minnesota on Wednesday were left with “no choice” but to resort to violence and steal from stores in response to the death of George Floyd, whose neck was kneeled on by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. In footage broadcast all across social media, protesters have seen looting stores and vandalizing places all over the city. Yet according to Cardi B, rioters were left with no choice but to resort to violence. “They looting in Minnesota and as much as I don’t like this type of violence...

    I know. I couldn't believe it wasn't Ernest Tubb, either. This really is Allen Flatt with That's What She Wrote (1953). Ronnie Pugh, in his book Ernest Tubb: The Texas Troubadour wrote, "Mercury, in fact, became almost a second home for Ernest Tubb imitators, since they also signed Tubb Clone Allen Flatt in 1954, after his earlier discs for Jamboree, Tennessee and Republic. Hal Smith recalls Flatt had live radio programs on WKDA, A Nashville station. Imagine that: Ernest Tubb so popular that he was mimicked in his own city!" Tubb recorded a different tune with the title That's All...

    I was watching some old war movies on Monday, and I am reminded of one with an unforgettable scene but whose title I simply cannot remember. It's set in China, and in the scene I mentioned Philip Ahn (Master Kan from "Kung Fu") is calmly teaching his students as the Japanese bombs fall around them. He asks them what their country is. "Our country is goodness" says one student. "Our country is kindness [or something like that]" says another. "Goodness and kindness [or whatever] make fine countries," he tells them. Anyway the implication is that they are all killed in...

    Swingin' Monday was a holiday, so we'll have Swingin' Tuesday with Adolph Hofner & The Pearl Wranglers and their 1956 recording of I Get So Lonesome (Since You're Gone). Hofner began his recording career with Jimmy Revard and the Oklahoma Playboys. In 1938 he was offered a contract with Bluebird Records and formed the group Adolph Hofner and His Texans. During WWII he recorded as Dolph Hofner & His San Antonians, and in 1950, sponsored by Pearl Beer, he formed Adolph Hofner & The Pearl Wranglers. THE WESTERNER https://thewesterner.blogspot.com/
  • To Save Time, The Babylon Bee Will Now Just Republish Everything Biden Says Verbatim

    The Babylon Bee ^ | May 25 2020 | The Babylon Bee
    The Bible tells us to work smarter, not harder. Or, better yet, don't work at all if you can help it. You can look it up. It's in the Proverbs somewhere. That's why we're announcing today that we will simply be republishing everything Joe Biden says word for word rather than spending a lot of time and effort writing satire. We at The Babylon Bee realized we were spending all this time trying to satirize Joe Biden when, frankly, he just can't be satirized. He's doing all the hard work for us with statements like "You ain't black!" and, of...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/24/2020 | Silvio Canto Jr.
    We remember Robert Zimmerman, who was born in Minnesota on this day in 1941.  We know him as Bob Dylan. As far as I know, Dylan has been quiet lately.  He seems to be enjoying retirement and having the rest of us listen to his songs.  (By the way, May is another anniversary of Dylan's second album, the one that included "Blowing in the wind.") Dylan did win the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016.  Eventually, he accepted the award, but his trip to Stockholm was typical Dylan, as I recall reading in The New Yorker: When he finally showed up in Stockholm, during an...

  • The Professional's Bodie to "Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor

    If you enjoy old British spy shows, I’ve remade a music video for The Professionals, a show from the late 70s. It starred Gordon Jackson as the spymaster Crowley, and Lewis Collins as Bodie and Martin Shaw as Doyle, the spy partners. “Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor focuses on Bodie, who had been previously a paratrooper and SAS soldier. Very fast-paced and much into shooting.
