  1. Rock Hall adds 6 groups to list of inductees CLEVELAND, Thu Feb 09, 12:04 AM The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame says six additional groups will be inducted this year after a committee determined they should be recognized with previously enshrined original lead singers. The Blue Caps, the Comets, the Crickets, the Famous Flames, the Midnighters and the Miracles will be inducted at the April ceremony in Cleveland. The Crickets' Buddy Holly and the Famous Flames' James Brown were inducted in 1986. The Comets' Bill Haley and the Miracles' Smokey Robinson were inducted in 1987. The Midnighters' Hank Ballard was inducted in 1990 and the Blue Caps' Gene Vincent was inducted in 1998. Previously announced inductees are the Beastie Boys, Donovan, Guns N' Roses, Laura Nyro, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Small Faces/The Faces, Freddie King, Don Kirshner, Cosimo Matassa, Tom Dowd and Glyn Johns.
  2. Nurk -- Van Halen will be releasing their new CD called "Different Kind of Truth on Feb, 7th. You can pre-order it on Amazon.com. One edition sells for $17 and the other for $20 (don;t know what the differences are), but if the CD is priced less at the time of release, you get it for that price.
  3. Forgot about Katrina and the Waves (Walking on Sunshine). Unfortunately, not many people are aware that there are piracy laws in this country. I'm not sure who I support at this point, but thank God Bachmann is out of the race.
  4. During a piece on ABC's World News Tonight on Sunday, they spoke about how music is used for the campaign trail. Mitt Romney uses "Born Free" from Kid Rock and Michelle Bachmann used "American Girl" for hers. The only differences were that at least Mitt asked for permission to use his song while Michelle never bothered to. Because of this, Tom Petty had issued an order to the Bachmann camp to withdraw using "American Girl" because of not asking permission. Go get 'em, Tom! :003:
  5. Click on the link below. When you get to the site, type in a Christmas song or any song and see what happens. This is funny! http://www.sundog.net/carolofthechins/flash/card.swf
  6. I have quite a few boots of Roy Buchanan and Buckwheat Zydeco. Great stuff...
  7. I think it's creative, but I have to agree with Benny. This is borderline piracy. I would think that anyone that uses anyone else's work would have the decency to ask permission of the artist before doing so.
  8. This is a protest song that was written by a man known as Makana. There is also a video. Check it out! http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dxq3BYw4xjxE%26feature%3Dplayer_embedded&h=KAQEkwMp8AQFvylyHVJe9aeoufwqzqjqgFX4MuvQDOjE-Vw

  11. My apologies, Nurk. I dropped it in the mailbox. Our Post Office is slow. Give it time. I haven't gotten it back yet, so that tells me it's on its way.....
  12. I sent it out on September 4th. I didn't receive any emails...try this again: panky1@optonline.net -- I'll email you back.
  13. Thank you Nurk and Antionette! All kepychains have been sold.

    I'm keeping you in my prayers, Nurk

  17. I bought 5 of the DK keychains...
  18. There's an accapella band called Straight No Chase that does a kick-ass vocal on Rehab. Great stuff...
  19. Here's what they have so far.... Singer Amy Winehouse was found dead at her apartment in London Saturday, the UK Press Association reported. She was 27. The "Rehab" singer had a history of battling drugs and alcohol and recently left a British rehabilitation program that a representative said was intended to prepare her for scheduled European concerts. But she cut short the European concert tour in Belgrade, Serbia, last month after she staggered around the stage and stumbled through several songs.
  20. Just received a newsflash from CNN News that Amy Winehouse has been found dead in her London apartment. She was 27 years old. No details have been released as of yet....stay tuned.
