A few weeks ago I heard a story in the news about a bunch of university students ( and, I'm sorry to say, this was in Ontario), who objected when a particular song was played at a social event at said university. The protests to the song demonstrate just how silly and ignorant ( "ignorant" in the original sense of "lacking knowledge" ) these students were.

They were claiming that this song was offensive and "hurtful"  (it's amazing how easily hurt people are now) to trans people. 

IF they'd (a) had the slightest knowledge of pop music history, or any interest in music made before 2010 (year chosen arbitrarily), they'd have been familiar with this great song, and it wouldn't have been any surprise to them to hear it     and

( b ) If they'd heard of the singer, who was an avid supporter of trans and gay people's rights long before it was in style to do so    and

( c ) even if they knew nothing of the history of the song or the singer, IF they'd actually listened intelligently to the lyrics....

 

...they would have celebrated this great piece of music, cheered it as a shout-out to trans people everywhere, and been happy that such a timeless cool song was being played at their social event.

 

Silly fools. ( as opposed to sensible fools...)

 

It's unbelievable how ****** up universities have become.

His LP 'Slim Slo Slider' (1970) was mostly an album of covers - which was usual for him (he did such a great job covering other people's work and giving it his own particular reading) - rarely doing more than one or two of his own original compositions on an album. On this one he covered Van Morrison's 'Slim Slo Slider' in two sections - the album's opening track and then again on an extended version to close the album.

 

Additionally he did this one of Van's as well (I believe it was track 9).

Jeremy Corbyn was a man of Labour,
Wasn't liked by the Evening Sun,
Almost became a left-wing savior,
Certainly made one hell of a run.

Watched a Monterey Pop Festival anniversary special on PBS--50 years ago this month!  Found the bands and set lists on a website and was struck by how many performances, and even bands, didn't make it into the documentary.  So much great music, too much I guess.

 

Alas, this from Neil and Buffalo Springfield didn't make it.  Couldn't find the footage from Monterey--maybe--horrors!--it hit the cutting room floor:

Ate a peach in memory in Gregg Allman.  So many leaving us, and too soon.  I didn't own their music, but it was everywhere then, on the radio, TV, people's stereos.  

 

I've never been fond of peach fuzz so I made a peach Jello and ate that.

"The Breaks" is a classic track. I also like "White Lines" by Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel.

I know that there are not many (if any) people on this forum who would say they like hip hop, so posting this video probably won't convince them otherwise. But I feel that denying that the genre didn't have any sort of cultural impact would be foolish at least. So here is a personal favorite of mine from that much maligned genre.

By a strange coincidence, the headline in the local newspaper

had the word Allman in it. When I spread it out it said Allman

Honored, Allman being a local teacher. R.I.P. Gregg.
