**** UPDATES, 8/09/20: NOW POSTED: My review of HEART FULL OF SOUL, the first bio of the late Yardbirds lead singer, Keith Relf (1943-1976), and email chat with the author, David French -- have a raveup on us, so to speak. ALSO: My review of The Stooges: Live At Goose Lake: August 8th, 1970.
PLUS: I separated the title track of I WATCH THE BIRDS (2019) from "Summer Is Here," so they're now posted separately in Featured Songs, just because...I wanted to celebrate the onset of summer, what else? That's reason enough, I think.
MOVED: My epic three-part chat with Curt Weiss about his Jerry Nolan biography (STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE) is now in Author Interviews. AND: "We Are The Clash: Reviews & Updates 5/07/19)" is now filed under Clash Book Dispatches. (No medal for you if you didn't make the connection. :-)
ALSO: My writeup on my cover version of "Police" (The Proles, 1979) is now included in the description box (Featured Songs). AND: My version of The Animals' 1965 classic, "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place," now over on Featured Songs, which I've also combined some tracks to free up some space.
COMING SOON: DESPERATE TIMES #2, chronicling the rise and fall of Safari Sam's, the legendary Huntington Beach night spot -- an oral history, and hard-boiled narrative of its brief, but highly-charged two year-run (1984-86).
PLUS: A 1:50 (in other words, nearly two hour) audio clip from Philadelphia, PA (7/10/18), where Mark Andersen and I appeared at Brickbat Books for our book, WE ARE THE CLASH: REAGAN, THATCHER & THE LAST STAND OF A BAND THAT MATTERED...plus, our pre-event interview with Joseph Gervasi, for Loud Fast Philly...over on the Spoken Word Tracks page. Our 60-minute clip from Politics & Prose (Washington, DC, 7/06/18) is there, too.
DELETED (FOR NOW): HAPPY TRAILS (LITTLE BUDGIE IS 47)...because I only have so much space. It'll return at some point, I'm sure. :-)
Comment capability's back for now, but stay on topic. If not...I'm taking the toys away again! :-) In the meantime: stay cool. ****
