General Discussion / A New Year.......
« on: December 31, 2017, 07:27:09 am »
Happy New Years  Fellas ...

well, we got through another year. A year full of ups and downs. Personal gains and tragedies. It was a pretty good year for the most part ,ended kinda on a somber note for me with the passing of 2 family members. I am just going to continue to move forward with the goals me and the wife have set for ourselves and keep enjoying life best way I know how . I hope and pray this coming new year is a great and wonderful year for us all . Only time well tell what's in store for us . Me, personally, I am ready for the challenge ..

Happy New Years everyone
or as we say in my house .....another year older ,another year fatter ,another year blader ,one year closer to putting my teeth in a glass jar on the night stand next to the bed

on behalf of my family to yours .. Merry Christmas Fellas . hope and pray you have a wonderful Holiday season

There is a wonderful and joyous event that happens each Christmas eve here in New Orleans, its called the Bonfire's on the Leeves .Its said that ole Saint Nick had a hard time finding his way threw the murky swamps and Bayou's of Southern Louisanna,so one night long ago some ole drunken cajun had an idea to go on top of the leeve on the foot of the mighty Mississippi River and stack some cypress logs as high he can and then light them on fire to help ole Saint Nick guide his way threw the swamps and bayous and ever since then it has been a tradition here in Louisanna and tonight we be no differant.

He was one of those musician who developed and pioneer a sound that will never be duplicated in a way that musicians like Gregg Allman did it.. Hearing some one play a Hammond B-3 organ live on stage is something you just don't forget . I had the pleasure of seeing Yes and Steve Winwood live at Different times and at both shows the bands had Hammond organs on stage .
Sadly I never seen Gregg Allman perform live ,but I can tell you that growing up in the South listening to him and his brother and bands like the Allman brothers had a  major influence on me .. You know, its very sad that in today's world and even beyond ,that the kids who allow music into there lives in such way as I did and others That they will never have the pleasure of experiencing such great musicians like Gregg Allman . We were truly blessed......

RIP ....

this guy passing away a few days ago really shocked me and breaks my heart to the fullest ...
he had the best voice to come out of the grunge area bar none ...a great singer and song writer who yet again died way to young

RIP Chris Cornell

this just sad .......all  these great talents and pioneers , from what ever industry they are from , are leaving us. I guess its a sign of the times. Maybe it is time to ''pass the torch'' . I guess we need to bow our heads and embrace what these people have given us through out the years .
Me personally, I am going to dig into my closet and pull out those old dusty 12'' vinyls and pay homage to those who have given me joy and relaxation my entire life .....

in my house when you spin a vinyl there only one rule.......you play it loud ,you play it proud ....

RIP fellas ... thank you for the wonderful music

geoff nicholls keyboardist for Sabbath and many other metal bands past away today as well .... With the passing of such great talents like Butch Trucks and Geoff Nicholls , who created such pioneering sounds , that are re-produced , copied , and used by artiest today , its sad to see such great talents pass away .. Theses guys amongst many others  of a by gone area ,who actually had to go into a studio and develop and perfect such wonderful sounds are slowly and sadly leaving us ..Without people like this I could only imagine what music would have sound like
