  1. The live album that defined live rock albums... "When your down in the dumps, and you need something to bring you up, there's only one thing gonna do it the way you want it!"
  2. Chuck, you've seen some awesome shows. Far more than I have attended. One of the most impressive lists I have ever seen. However. You saw Mangione and Kenny G. I think you may have left out Tesh? Those artists 'pee' in your perfect pool. You will bow down to my bunghole... Do you have any TP?
  3. Well, a hulk of a man with a beer in his hand Looked like a drunk old fool.. And I knew if I hit him right Why I could knock him off-a that stool But ever'body they said "Watch out, Hey, that's Tiger Man McCool" He's had a whole lot of fights And he's always come out a WINNER Yea!, he's A WINNER. But I'd had myself about five too many And I walked up tall and proud I faced his back and I faced the fact That he had never stooped or bowed I said, "Tiger Man, you're a pussycat" And a hush fell on the crowd I said "let's you and me, go outside and see Who's A WINNER." Well, he gripped the bar with one big hairy hand And he braced against the wall He slowly looked up from his beer And, my God, that man was tall He said "boy, I see you're a scrapper So just before you fall I'm gonna tell you just a little 'Bout what it means to be A WINNER." He said "Now you see these bright white smiling teeth? You know they ain't my own Mine rolled away like chicklets Down some street in San Antone But I left that person, cursin' Nursin' seven broken bones And he, uh, only broke, uh, three of mine That makes me THE WINNER." He said "Now behind this grin, I got a steel pin That holds my jaw in place A trophy of my most successful Mo-to-cycle race And each morning when I wake and touch This scar across my face It reminds me of all I got by being A WINNER." "Now this broken back was a dying act Of a handsome, Harry Clay That sticky Cin-ci-nnati night I stole his wife away But that woman she gets uglier, And she gets meaner, every day But I got her, boy that's what makes me A WINNER? He said "You gotta speak loud when you challenge me son 'Cause it's hard for me to hear With this twisted neck and these migrane pains And this big old cauliflower ear And if it wasn't for this glass eye of mine Why, I'd shed a happy tear To think of all you're gonna get By being A WINNER." I got ar-th-rit-ic elbows, son I got dislocated knees From pickin' fights with thunderstorms And chargin' into trees And my nose's been broke so often I might lose it if I sneeze And son, you say you still wanna be A WINNER." "Now you remind me a lot of my younger days With your knuckles a-clenchin' white But boy, I'm gonna sit right here And sip this beer all night And if there's somethin' that you gotta gain or prove by winnin' some silly fight Well, OK, I quit, I lose You're THE WINNER." Oh, I stumbled from that barroom Not so tall and not so proud And behind me I still hear the hoots and laughter of the crowd But my eyes still see and my nose still works And my teeth are still in my mouth And you know, I guess that Makes me THE WINNER.

  9. Um, yeah, hey Benita? Yeah, I could have lived without that last photo of Ace. Comfortably. Rumour has it through my various channels that Ace has hit the skids hard, and spends most of his time wasted drunk drifting in and out of casinos. A friend of mine here locally, Moe Rotondi, has a Kiss tribute band, in which he plays Gene. Moe and I go way back. he was telling me that shortly before the Holidays he was with his wife in Niagra Falls and saw Frehley sitting on the curb in front of Casino Rama blasted out of his head. He had been asked to leave the premises. Pretty sad for a guy who was on top of the world only a few years ago. Isn't addiction great? Ken.

    Dear Georgeanne Walsh.. The Eagles just called, they left you this message... Get Over It I turn on the tube and what do I see A whole lotta people cryin' 'Don't blame me' They point their crooked little fingers ar everybody else Spend all their time feelin' sorry for themselves Victim of this, victim of that Your momma's too thin; your daddy's too fat Get over it Get over it All this whinin' and cryin' and pitchin' a fit Get over it, get over it You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash But you might feel better if I gave you some cash The more I think about it, Old Billy was right Let's kill all the lawyers, kill 'em tonight You don't want to work, you want to live like a king But the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing Get over it Get over it If you don't want to play, then you might as well split Get over it, Get over it It's like going to confession every time I hear you speak You're makin' the most of your losin' streak Some call it sick, but I call it weak You drag it around like a ball and chain You wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the pain You wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown Got your mind in the gutter, bringin' everybody down Complain about the present and blame it on the past I'd like to find your inner child and kick its little ass Get over it Get over it All this bitchin' and moanin' and pitchin' a fit Get over it, get over it Get over it Get over it It's gotta stop sometime, so why don't you quit Get over it, get over it
  11. This went through Canda a couple of years ago. Originally, part of a Molson Canadian Beer ad, people really clung to it, and patriotism went through the roof for a couple of weeks. Then it got cold, gas prices went up, the price of a pack of smokes went up, and we all kinda forgot about it, eh? Anyhow, here is 'The Rant'.... Hey, I'm not a lumberjack, or a fur trader.... I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber, or own a dogsled.... and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada, although I'm certain they're really really nice. I have a Prime Minister, not a president. I speak English and French, not American. And I pronounce it 'about', not 'a boot'. I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack. I believe in peace keeping, not policing, diversity, not assimilation, and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal. A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch, and it is pronounced 'zed' not 'zee', 'zed' ! Canada is the second largest landmass! The first nation of hockey! and the best part of North America My name is Joe!! And I am Canadian!!! Ken.
  12. I'd love to take the time to answer this question, but I find I cannot... I'm.......... having an old friend for dinner.... Ken.
  13. "Happy Birthday". WAY overrated. Ken.
  14. As far as songwriters go, I like to be told a story from the singers perspective. This is one of the reasons I love Buffett so much. So many tales from the road, the places he has been, the people he has met... Check this out... Some folks say that I've got the perfect life Three swell kids, lots of toys and a lovely wife I fly, I sail, I throw caution to the wind Drift like a stratus cloud above the Caribbean But every now and then, the dragons come to call Just when you least expect it, you'll be dodgin' cannonballs I've seen too much not to stay in touch With a world full of love and luck I've got a big suspicion 'bout ammunition I never forget to duck (Chorus): Come back, come back back to Jamaica Don't you know, we made a big mistaica We'd be so sad if you told us good-bye And we promise not to shoot you out, of the sky It was a beautiful day, the kind you want to toast We were tree top flyin', movin' west along the coast Then we landed in the water, just about my favorite thrill When some a**hole started firing as we taxied to Negril Just about to lose my temper as I endeavored to explain We had only come for chicken we were not a ganja plane Well, you should have seen their faces when they finally realized We were not some coked up cowboy sporting guns and alibis (Chorus) Come back, come back back to Jamaica Don't you know, we made a big mistaica We'd be so sad if you told us good-bye And we promise not to shoot you out, of the sky They shot from the lighthouse, they shot from highway They shot from the top of the cliff, they had all gone haywire We're catchin' fire, and there wasn't even a spliff Well, the word got out all over the island Friends, strangers, they were all apologizin' Some thought me crazy for bein' way too nice But it's just, another shi**y day in, paradise Come back, come back back to Jamaica Don't you know, we made a big mistaica We'd be so sad if you told us good-bye And we promise not to shoot you out, of the sky
  15. I went to the same high-school as the Tea Party, Jeff Martin's parents live 5 minutes from my house.
  16. This from a guy sittin' naked at a computer? Did you at least check out the link?
  17. The cream of the crop (whatever it may be) from 2004 doesn't come close to ANYTHING that ever came out of Motown, over 40 years ago.
  18. Digging through my CD collection, I rediscovered these guys. I can't understand what they are saying, but it really just doesn't matter. Stairway to Heaven and Freebird and that kind of stuff has been beaten into the ground.. Check this out for something different, uplifiting, and startlingly beautiful. A great audio sample plays right away. Ken.
  19. Well it sure is nice down here this time of year, The tourists are tanned and there's Holiday Cheer, Here comes Santa Claus, Havin' a tropical Christmas... I've mailed out my cards to the great Frozen North, Sweatin' from the energy I put forth, Singin' "Jingle Bells", Having a tropical Christmas.... And when the sun sets down in the ocean, We'll decorate the palm trees We'll mingle ornaments, with the coconut lights, Then we'll go carolling through Paradise, And thank Baby Jesus, For this tropical Silent Night............. First we'll open our presents, then we'll lay on the beach, Later we'll call, see what relatives we reach.... In their winter wonderland, Havin' a tropical Christmas, And when the sun sets down in the ocean, We'll decorate the palm trees......... We'll mingle ornaments, with the coconut lights, Then we'll go carolling through Paradise, And thank Baby Jesus, For this tropical Silent Night.... Hey Kris Kringle, when you empty your sleigh, Stop by and kick back, with us a few days, You and Rudolph, Havin' a tropical Christmas We're buildin' snowmen in the sand, Havin' a tropical Christmas, Grandma wants a bikini, Havin' a tropical Christmas Y'all come on down, We'll have a tropical Christmas Bring your suntan oil, Havin' a tropical Christmas Let there be Peace on Earth, Havin' a tropical Christmas, Bring your surfboards, too Havin' a tropical Christmas..........
  20. Luke 2:7 "And she brought fourth her firstborn Son and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger because there was no room for them at the inn" Luke 2:11 "For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord" Ho Ho Ho! Mark this event by buying the one you love a 15 amp reciprocating saw (199.99 at Home Depot!) or a 26 oz. Fleece pullover at Old Navy! Something went wrong somewhere.... Ken.
  21. This song always brings me down because at the end, the party is over.... Wasn't That A Party The Irish Rovers Could-a been the whisky, might-a been the gin. Could-a been the three or four six packs, I don't know, But look at the mess I'm in! My head feels like a football, I think I'm going to die. But tell me, a-me oh, me oh my, Wasn't that a Party? Someone took a grapefruit, wore it like a hat. I saw someone under my kitchen table, talking to my old tomcat. They were talking about hockey, The cat was talking back, Along about then everything went black. Wasn't that a party It sure it's just my memory, Playing tricks on me, but I think I saw my buddy, Cuttin' down my neighbours tree. Bill, and Joe and Tommy, Went a little far. They were sitting in the front yard, Blowing on the siren, Of somebody's police car. And so you see, Your Honour, It was all in fun. That little bit of drag meet down on main street, Was just to see if the cops could run. Well they run us in to see you, In an alcoholic haze, I sure can use those thirty days. But wasn't that a party?
  22. Dimebag Darrell To Be Buried In Kiss Kasket 14 December 2004 Kiss have donated a Kiss Kasket to the family of Damageplan/Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell for the metal star to be buried in. Darrell was a huge Kiss fan and even had a tattoo the band on his body. As well as the Kiss tatt, Darrell also had Frehley autograph it and had that tattooed to his body as well. Kiss bass player Gene Simmons announced he was giving the family the coffin on Fox News with Rita Cosby. Simmons told Cosby "well, I wasn't really prepared to talk about it, but the family requested, as a personal issue between the family and the grieving people who are going to be there, to send a Kiss casket. We initially did it as a promotion. And you know, I think it meant a lot to Darryl when, you know - when he was alive, he gave lots of people great joy. I mean he had the band tattooed onto his chest. He was a major figure in rock and roll. He's going to be greatly missed. And the family wish - you know the one last wish they had was that he buried in a Kiss casket. And I think it's a private matter for the family and the fans actually". In speaking about atrocities that can happen with fans, Simmons added "You know people often forget that the word "fan" actually comes from the word "fanatical". Most people are very nice. Most people respect your privacy. But here's no secret, most celebrities check into hotels under pseudonyms and the reason is not because I don't love the fans but because you've got to be able to keep everybody at arm's length because every once in a while you're going to get a nut job. The only justice, as far as I'm concerned is that this nut case is no longer around to do this to anybody else". Dimebag Darrell will be buried in a private family ceremony this week. His family has requested the details not to be published by the media.
  23. One thing about the Kiss "I Was Made For Loving You" video.. Peter was zonked on coke and other drugs during the shooting of that vid. The camera guys had to be very selective about how they shot him. The band was close to breaking up at that point. He had to be dragged out to the set for the video shoot, and could barely sit on the stool. Yay drugs. Ken.
