Friday Random Ten (on the road edition)

We're heading back through San Diego on our way back home to the desert. It's been a hell of a week. We have a nominee. It's the one I was hoping for (actually my second choice, but I would have been Ok with Senator Clinton, not ecstatic, but Ok)

The big news this morning is that Bush and Cheney were liars about Iraq. File that under no fucking shit, I'm so happy you figured that out.

Here's the soundtrack for the morning. . .

He Can Only Hold Her - - - Amy Winehouse
Forest Lawn - - - Tom Paxton
Ain't No Sunshine - - - Buddy Guy (live bootleg with Tracy Chapman on vocals)
Tobe's Got A Drinking Problem - - - Street Dogs
Hell, Or England - - - The Men They Couldn't Hang
I Can't Get Started - - - Dinah Washington
Go To The Mardi Gras - - - Professor Longhair
Piano Concerto #2 - - - Mozart
Gumboots - - - Paul Simon
Angel Band - - - Stanley Brothers

Bonus - - - Stag O'Lee - - - Mississippi John Hurt

Back to more reasonable posting patterns soon. Thanks for your patience and support.

Bo Diddly Dies of Heart Failure

Heart failure, not rock failure.

I'll miss you Bo. I'll think of you everytime we cook backstage. You did that a lot, because it reminded you of the years you spent on the road when it was illegal for you and your band to go to restaurants. Once it became legal, you still traveled with a portable kitchen, 'cause you were a better cook than most of the restaurants.

I was proud to wash your dishes Bo.
