Oddly, the day he died he made lots of other people cry.

lol some bike dude is going off in my apartment complex in the parking lot at someone on his phone.  he's up to about 40 fbombs so far. while listening to him is funny (I don't know why i find it funny hearing somebody cuss, but it is), the clint eastwood geezer side of me wants to go ask him what his problem is and squint fiercely at him. we do have kids in our complex, they don't need to be hearing his bs

Woodie Guthrie was 20 years old and already singing folk music when Johnny Cash was born in 1932. Cash looks like him, not the other way around. pfft

Zaph, I'm very sorry for your loss. Both of my parents are gone, my mom just passed away in November. It's very tough but remembering and sharing the good times with family will get you through.

I was in a maudlin mood myself after a bizarre day full of blessings and curses and reminders.

Some days i think i actually think i suffer from survivor's guilt. I'll curse that i still live while betters of my generation whom i knew and loved have spent decades decaying. But i wouldn't trade places with the best of them and if i could she'd probably just die again, still too soon.

My own father was on my mind today too, Zaph. Dead now ~2 1/2 years, he was borderline geezer material a few weeks shy of 69 but looking ten years past it and acting his age for the first and only time in his life that i ever saw. The Alabama song you posted was oddly touching, and i've been listening to some of my dad's old faves ever since, specifically Van Morrison's Hard Nose The Highway and Astral Weeks albums.

There are stories involved. Maybe another time.

But thanks for sharing, my friend.

It's another time. I'm bored and catching a buzz early on a Sunday. Why not?

The story of the making of the album Astral Weeks is one of the most compelling Rock N Roll stories i've ever heard, at least in my own sterling opinion. Legend has it that Van wasn't thrilled with his bandmates from Them and his solo career was launched under the direction of Bert Bearnes with the release of the single Brown-Eyed Girl, and that Van took Bert's subsequent death so poorly that he wound up in an asylum in Belfast. However, he was still under contract with Warner Bros, and an album was due. Legend has it that Astral Weeks was written entirely in the asylum and there is documentation that the entire album was recorded in three sessions with musicians he had never previously met, who hadn't seen so much as a note of Astral Weeks before showing up at studio for the first session, and who expected to record a pop album. Fortunately somefuckingbody at Warner had read at least some of the sheet music for the album and made it clear that jazz musicians were needed. So at least they were able to perform the music even though it was a bit more demanding than they'd been expecting.

Speaking of expecting, and expectations....

When my father was 7 years old, he played 3rd base. One day he wasn't watching a pitch, and the bat took the ball straight up the hot corner at just below belt level. Spectators in the stands, according to my paternal grandfather, worried that my father's athletic supporter might have been broken, based on the sound of the ball hitting his. He wasn't wearing a cup that day. At 7 years old, he was told that he would never father a child. Many years later, Astral Weeks...

When Van got his shit back together not too long after, he embarked upon a tour of the States, including a stop at SPAC, where (on the lawn, no less) it turned out that what had been declared impossible was merely extraordinarily improbable; during the lovely cello work during Madame George, according to both my parents. My father's name was George, which is almost certainly just a coincidence.

OH omg Mo I'm sorry, i totally misread that post. I mean awesome you were conceived and what a great place to get conceived at. I'm 99% sure I was an accident and something my parents should have erased, but that was their decision and the planet now suffers the more for it. BUT if i understand correctly, way cool having parents into good music. MY stupid parents were into country or tone deaf, and just refuse to understand the joy music brings to people - and obviously if it's not in their realm of appreciating, it just isn't important to the planet at all.

No worries Zaph. My mom doesn't give a shit about music anymore and my dad, to whom i rec'd Kanye's first album, is passed now.

He's better off not knowing where Kanye has gone since then. gross

I got to see John Mayall at The Egg in Albany back in '95 or '96. Absolutely phenomenal show. Iirc he had Jon Mark and Johnnie Almond with him as well, two of my favorites of the Blues Breakers.

Ernie Williams made it to 87. BB King made it to 89. There may be others, i'd be interested to know.

Zaph, i still love that whole album, Disintegration.
