  1. The school is just a couple hours down the road from me. Haven't stopped in yet but it's on the bucket list when I'm in the area and they're around. Sounds like a great place where kids that "want it" can "get it!". Thanks for the posts Paul.
  2. Yup, I got the fevah!!! lol Found this from 1971, Half-speed Master of "Island"... Sounds great! Been spinnin alllllll day! Pat Travers band dropped this one in '79 to mixed reviews but I had to have it. My old buddy from Black Oak Arkansas Tommy Aldrige was a drummin. Pa rumple da dum... Tommy's always been a fav kickin those double bass drums. Great guy. Runs 5 miles a day and does 500 sit-ups. That's 5 miles and 500 more sit-ups than I'd do! Boz Scaggs ya say? Don't ask me? It was laying there in a pile so I tossed it on! lol "Middle Man" was released in 1980 after picking up Steve Lukather and some of the guys from Toto as session musicians. Tossed in Carlos Santana on a cut and others. It was described as "white soul" music for dimly lit bars or something like that. hahaha Nice and smooth though. Got this a week or so ago and wanted to unzip it but waited until today. Yup, it's Peter alright and pretty good for a "Live" LP. Ha! See what I did there? 😂
  3. That's one great album from "74 ^^^^^^ and you'll become a repeat offender listening to it. Sounds amazing here! Always nice to have someone to listen with who appreciates Fripp and company. See what you started? Ha! Life's about Discipline. Kinda maybe Now I'm thinking about going back into the 60's... Arrrrgh. lol
  4. Ditto! White one here. Got about 4-5 inches of snow here. Think I should fire up the big snow blower @ 0530 and go for it here in the hood? Bwa ha ha Firing up the coffee pot instead!
  5. Hahaha ESPN reported tonight Justin Fields finished 7th in the Heisman voting today. hahahaha Didn't play enough games w/the covid bans entering into the picture according to ESPN. Bet he goes quicker than most think. We'll wait and see. Kirk Herbstreet's son is also "preferred" walk on next fall @ OSU.
  6. Merry Christmas everyone! Enjoy and stay safe!
  7. @Tarheel how much per minute is she charging his card this year for the calls or should I ask? While I'm in here I'd like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Kick back and enjoy the next couple days. Calling for a high here of 20 tomorrow so we'll see just how many are out running around. Youngest caught a red eye sleigh ride in from Phoenix last night and stopping by soon. Haven't seen her in a year w/covid out there. Hope she doesn't bring it along with her! Enjoy it all! Merry Christmas!
  8. Glad everything worked out for you today @grasshopper. KNOW you're enjoying them now steer clear of your wife's LS. hahaha Ask her nicely if you can play them. Merry Christmas to you and the fam!
  9. A week or so ago they announced they were putting an Aldi's here in Duckburg. 13k people? 3 forms of "Family Dollar" stores here already, Walmart Super Center and a large Kroger. They must be seeing something I'm not in their marketing. They open I'll be there shopping for records first!
  10. Going to share a note from Mark Chatfield I just saw. Mark always said he was going to play w/Bob Seger. I always laffed and told him to keep workin. He did and he did. He had to be a pup when he saw Leslie w/Felix and the boys but everyone has their Kodak moments. Leslie was a great guy and will be missed. From Mark: RIP Leslie West. I can’t even describe the effect he had on me as a player. (I got fired from my first band in early 1970 , because I wanted to learn Mississippi Queen & they wanted to learn Hitchin’ A Ride” !!) From using Les Paul Jrs since 1974, to some of my playing style and tone ( though there was only One Leslie West and the only one with “that” tone.) There are few guitar players out there instantly recognizable after 2 or 3 notes. He’s at the top of that list ! I still think the live side of Flowers of Evil is some of the best Rock guitar playing and tone ever recorded. I’ve heard his licks/style from other players , but never have I heard anyone say “He/She sounds just like Leslie West”. Don’t think it could be done !!! He was truly One of a Kind. RIP Leslie West.

    One more trip out and I'm done! Then gonna warm the tubes up! Ya just NEVER know...
  12. Let the games begin! 😂 😂 😂
  13. Hope they get it straightened out in Phoenix. Youngest daughter is on a Wednesday red-eye into Detroit. Said she'd be here mid-afternoon Christmas Eve. She had Covid last fall so I hope she brings it to me so I can give her that Christmas cash she's expecting. Sounds fair to me. NOT! IF I'm lucky she'll take these Heresy's outta here along w/an amp.
