    I'm SO into enjoying pics of exposed zippers and large penises covered by tight denim. Thank you ever so much.
    Sorry, not a Rolling Stones fan. They have GREAT songs in their portfolio, but I am not a fan.

    This was supposed to be deleted. The mind, such as it is boggles.

    A moment in time the calls to me and causes me to hold it dear.
    Here we have rock and roll that broke all the rules.
    Here we have the oppressed understanding and embracing
    a rock star as a liberator.



    When music is the negotiator all parties are satisfied. A moment that teaches even the hard of hearing.We couldn't let this moment pass unnoticed so they made a play and put it on for those born to late to hear the future. ":O}

    When I was a lad (18-20) two guitars came into my life as a non player.
    The first was a guitar bought a the salvation Army by Jack Tempchin.
    It was a black and whit Stella. a Child's model. I always thought it kinda beat and ugly. It cost Jack every penny he had.$15.00

    But everywhere Jack went people wanted to play that Guitar... I was told that "It has a tone."

    The second came two years later. I was a $500.00 Gibson Humming bird. It was an honest to God piece of fine art. I so hungered for even the slightest talent
    My friend kept it two weeks and returned it...he didn't like the action.
    I Said fine just hang it on the wall! But he wanted one he liked to play...some people! LOL

    Both were of course acoustic.

    This cover band does a very good job. But as an imitation of the original it fails. And always will.

    Leo Fender and Les Paul designed fine, fine guitars. For this we are fortunate.

    Fails> I wonder..

    For me it told a story. One that can only be told in the retelling as Buddy can't be here to say.
    So what remains is this.

    In the mist of nation wide racial strife A white group from rural Texas came to New your city.
    and played for the quintessential Harlem black audience An Audience renown for it's unwavering critical
    review. a Review that was instantly known by their response.

    This was a"fan base" that would pay newspapers to have printed obituarys of acts they didn't think would make the grade.Prior to their appearing!!
    Dumping on acts was a sport at the Apollo..

    What isn't made clear is how often they booed and catcalled acts off the stage..The Apollo was where bad acts went to die.

    Mean while in the rest of the country MOST venues where closed to black acts. A miss by a booking agent could easily end lives.

    So curtain goes up and it goes up on all the abuse whites have heap upon them.
    Now here's their chance for payback!
    This is where they can get even.Here's an unknown white act they can humiliate with impunity.To tell white they aren't good enough.

    A white act that stands before them and has the audacity to ask:

    How will you receive us?

    But there was a second group that made a judgement in that moment.
    The black acts who had directly suffered white abuse on tour.

    The same black guys that joined them to give them street cred.
    When Sammy Cook gives you the nod...everyone nods.
    So in that moment a black audience showed America the way we must go.

    All this because Buddy Holly was mis booked into a black theater whose audience was 50 years ahead of their time..

    Buddy's music reached them. Because they had hearts that were open to him and a deep desire that we should live together in peace.

    They wait for us you know. They wait for a change in the hearts of men.
