Have you ever lost a girlfriend, see her years later and wondered what happened to her? Why has she let herself go? I had the same feeling yesterday when I took a road trip back to the house I grew up in outside of Ava, Mo. It looks like there hasn't been any work done on the house since we left it in 1971. I was sad..

My dad rebuilt that house with his bare hands...he's spinning in his grave.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

What started off as a great idea has turned into a complete and worthless sham. The nominees were inducted last night and while I agree with Little Anthony and The Imperials, War, Wanda Jackson, The Stooges and Jeff Beck and almost agree with Metallica, RUN DMC was inducted. RUN DMC had one song and it was mostly done by Aerosmith (who should be ashamed of themselves they have sold out so badly).
Still, no love for...

Three Dog Night (someone said Three Dog's problem is that they didn't write their own songs, well, neither did Rod Stewart)

The Moody Blues (this is travesty)

The Doobie Brothers (How can this be?)

Chicago (what the...)

Deep Purple (one of the original heavy metal bands that had musical ability)

Yes (the soundtrack of my adolescence, my first experience with "headphone" rock)

J. Geils Band (the hardest working band I've ever seen, America's answer to the Stones)

Grand Funk (drove my parents nuts)

Leon Russell (one of the greatest songwriters ever)

Rush (the thinking man's band)

Let's even go with Alice Cooper this live performance shows you how good they were live

Can't forget The Guess Who, live on the Johnny Cash show

Dire Straits, anyone? (maybe one of the best guitar solos ever)
