The Concert for George DVD

You must buy it. An absolutely breathtaking release featuring Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, Dhani Harrison, Ringo and , of course, Sir Paul. The tunes are the best..and if "Something" done by Paul and the band doesn't get you a clutch in the throat, then try "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" with Paul and Eric. Absolutely incredible!!

Random Thoughts...

Every once in awhile, I will post stuff just for the sake of posting stuff...feel free to jump in.

The best drink in the world are Long Island Teas..when made well, they are the easiest (and deadliest). I can do about 4, then call me a cab.

Please, please please, quit using great classic rock songs in commercials. I will not buy anything from anyone that takes the easy way out by using a classic rock song as a part of their ad campaign. Kansas should be ashamed for selling "Dust In The Wind" to a car company.

As much as they try to screw it up, baseball is still the greatest game ever. Nothing beats the thrill of seeing Albert Pujos hit a walk off home run in the bottom of the 13th inning. Magical!

I still love mowing my own yard, it takes one hour of the week to do it and the hum of the mower is almost hypnotising. It's when I think of all my plans to take over the world, you can see how successful I've been.

Some underrated, overlooked bands of the seventies would include: The Atlanta Rhythm Section, Climax Blues Band, Wishbone Ash and the best heavy metal band ever: Blue Oyster Cult.

Sara Evans

Some people may think that Faith Hill is the best looking woman in country music...some may say Shania Twain may be, but for my money, there is no one better looking than Sara Evans. Just absolutely beautiful and, from what I hear, one of the nicest and most down home stars you will ever want to meet. That's what I think, but, then again, I could be wrong.
