From Ben Haggard..

I couldn't find my own words .. What an incredible life to celebrate..
"A week ago dad told us he was gonna pass on his birthday, and he wasn't wrong. A hour ago he took his last breath surrounded by family and friends. He loved everything about life and he loved that everyone of you gave him a chance with his music. He wasn't just a country singer.. He was the best country singer that ever lived."

Wow man. Truly sad.

Merle was a giant. I was actually going to make a point of going out to see him when he rolled through town this year. Never did. Ahhhhh man. Bummer.

the dust

....and another one bites...

RIP Merle Haggard, ya done good. Don't let those who proceeded you push you around...you earned your spot in the band.

And to pass away on the same day you were born: that's a true musician's way to end a riff.

...Goodnight!

Discovery of RC was inevitable given my love of Britcoms (or, more accurately, adoration of that dry, intelligent, satirical, innuendo-laced, and seemingly inimitable species of humour appropriately native to a people who worship tea, exalt mere toast, treat sunshine as a newsworthy event, and recklessly pluralize things ("maths"?). I digress; last year, I purchased a multi-zone DVD player JUST so I could watch the Complete 2 Ronnies collection I found on ebay (actually I had to pay for it).

For the uninitiated, take quick utube detour!/bloody hell, K

...And It's Goodnight From Him

Ronnie Corbett - 4 December 1930 – 31 March 2016

A cement mixer collided with a prison van on the Kingston by-pass. Motorists are asked to be on the look-out for 16 hardened criminals.

And It's Goodnight From Me...

Ronnie Corbett - 4 December 1930 – 31 March 2016

A man was marooned on a desert island. One day a beautiful woman arrives in a wet suit. 'When did you last have a smoke?' she asks. 'Five years ago.' So she gets out a cigar and he smokes it. She unzips her wet suit a bit and says, 'When did you last have a drink?' He said, 'Five years ago.' So she gets out a bottle of Scotch and he has a drink. Then she unzips her wet suit a bit more and says, 'And when was the last time you played around?' He looks at her in amazement and says: 'You're not telling me you've got a set of golf clubs in there?'

Johnny Winter

In 2014 one of most innovative blues/rock guitarist's to ever pick up the instrument , went on to His final resting place. A true native of the state of Texas , who influenced countless others, also with disregard for racial discrimination.Mr John Dawson Winter paved the way for more acceptability and appreciation for blues and it,s child Rock n Roll.I only had the honor of seeing Him perform live way back in 1980 at the Woolman Skating Rink in Central Park,N.Y.C.This show was a barn burner and He played a wide selection of classic tunes as well as real hidden gems from the His treasure chest of signature tunes.Never Mind Johnny B. Goode, Johnny Winter was always good for the preservation of soul,mind and spirit.May He forever Rest In Peace!
