  1. When I read about his passing yesterday, my heart was sad...such a big part of my music growing up was listening to Lou Reed. A great talent in the music world, he was a creative leader in the 60's...gifted songwriter...a terrible loss....rest in peace Lou.
  2. Thanks Shawna, but Kevin is right...it is about lust and desire. Basically a desire for someone over the years and finally meeting to quench the desire, if only for a brief time. We all have felt this way at one or more times in life.
  3. Thanks Ron. It was one of those poems that just seemed to flow easily. I did heistate with the "a" in front of fevor, I took it off and then put it back. Now that I keep looking at it and rereading, it is best without.
  4. DESIRES a want a need a hunger appetites to feed every second every minute every hour time a culprit the look the touch the kiss craving so much we yearn we beckon we desire a fervor has begun it's passionate it's breathless it's exhilarating euphoria is limitless
  5. I so needed to read something of yours today Ron, this quenched my need....thank you.
  6. Veteran rocker Meat Loaf is hanging up his microphone next year after announcing his next tour will be his last. The "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)" hitmaker will kick off Meat Loaf - The Farewell Tour in the U.K. next spring by playing his hit 1977 album "Bat Out of Hell" in its entirety at each stop. In a post on Facebook, the Grammy winner writes, "I know the fans will enjoy the show as much as I enjoyed putting it together." It is not yet known if the 65 year old, who battled vocal issues last year, will add other locations to his trek, which will currently begin in Newcastle, England on April 5 and end in Cardiff, Wales on April 21. The news will likely come as a surprise to fans - the artist has recently admitted he'd rather die on stage than quit performing, telling CNN, "I go out on the stage as if it's the last thing I'll ever do. And that's what I've always said - If I'm going out, I'm going out on stage."
  7. Fans of late sitar legend Ravi Shankar will be able to bid their final farewells to the star at a public memorial in California on Thursday. The Grammy-winning musician, who is Norah Jones' father, passed away on Dec. 11 at the age of 92. A public memorial has been arranged for fans and friends of the late legend at the Self-Realization Fellowship in San Diego. A statement from his family reads, "For those who have some personal relationship with Ravi Shankar and his music, this will be an opportunity to say farewell. "He was a man of the public, and the public should be able to pay their respects." Two public concerts in his memory are also being planned in London and New York next year
  8. Peter Frampton plans to take a collection of guitarists on tour for the summer under the title of “Peter Frampton’s Guitar Circus.” Frampton said BB King is the first guest signed for the tour and he will participate for three weeks in August. Frampton wants the tour to go throughout the summer and bring in special guests for various periods of time. The full repertoire is currently undecided, though it is expected to include new material, instrumentals from his Grammy-winning 2006 release “Fingerprints” and “the old favorites” according to Frampton. Frampton also said he found the 1954 Gibson Les Paul guitar he played on in “Frampton Comes Alive,” which he thought was destroyed 30 years ago in a plane crash. Frampton says the guitar is not only working now, “but I was recording with it this afternoon between dress rehearsals and the show. It’s a surreal thing to have it back. It was the only electric guitar I had for 10 years – I couldn’t afford to have multiples. It was all I played; it’s a very important guitar to me.
  9. This is wonderful news for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The all-star “12-12-12” concert featuring Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Alicia Keys has raised $50 million for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The epic gig at New York City’s Madison Square Garden last week brought out some of music’s greatest legends, including Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones and The Who. The six-hour show was broadcast live on TV and online across the world to an estimated two billion people. Viewers called in to make donations, with actors such as Susan Sarandon, Ben Stiller, Whoopi Goldberg and Jeremy Piven helping to man the phones. The money will be given to the Robin Hood Relief Fund and distributed to about 160 groups providing aid to those whose homes and businesses were destroyed when the post-tropical cyclone struck America’s North East in October.
  10. This is one time where being in radio is a difficult job. Talking about this tragedy is tough but people want to talk about it, try to understand why. It was hard to send my child to school today, as it was for any parent. Prayers for everyone.
  11. Sending prayers to all the families of the victims of the shootings in Connecticut. So tragic....
  12. I donated too! I watched it with my daughter and she had tears wondering what all the people without homes would do for Christmas. She ask me if we could help and I said yes and donated. Helping your fellow man is what life is about, and every donation is a help.
  13. The new class of inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has been announced, and it includes rockers, the Queen of Disco, a group of hip hop pioneers and a band whose fans have long been clamoring for the honor. In the performer category, Heart, Albert King, Randy Newman, Public Enemy, Rush and Donna Summer will receive the prestigious induction. Lou Adler and Quincy Jones will receive the Ahmet Ertegun Award, which is given to non-performers. A few of those selected to be part of the 2013 group had been nominated before, but none have had the fan support for entry into the hallowed Hall of Fame as first time nominees Rush. The band had been eligible for nomination for the past 14 years. Member Alex Lifeson told CNN after the group was nominated back in October that the honor meant a great deal to his group's fan base. "For our fans, it's very, very important, and we feel great for them," he said. "We're at the next stage and we'll see if we're actually inducted. If so, we'll support it in every way we can for our fans." To be eligible for a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination, artists had to have released their work at least 25 years prior to appearing on the ballot. That means this year's group released their first single in 1987 or earlier. For the first time since 1993, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held on the West coast. The 28th annual event is scheduled for April 18 and will be held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. in Los Angeles, California. The ceremony will be open to the ticket-buying public, and will air on HBO at 9 p.m. on May 18.
  14. Do not call it a comeback and don't even think of it as a farewell tour. After more than four decades making music and a 2010 tour, Fleetwood Mac will hit the road again next year. But it won't be its last tour, singer Stevie Nicks vowed, dismissing any notion that the band could be packing away their instruments in the near future. "It's never going to be a final tour until we drop dead," Nicks told Reuters. "There's no reason for this to end as long as everyone is in good shape and takes care of themselves." The 34-city tour with dates in the United States and Canada will begin on April 4 in Columbus, Ohio, and finish up on June 12 in Detroit. The tour coincides with the 35th anniversary of the blockbuster 1977 album, "Rumours," which landed the group four hit singles and sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. The album will be reissued with unreleased studio and live recordings, Fleetwood Mac said. After frequent changes to the lineup since the band formed in London in 1967, the 2013 tour will feature Nicks, guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, and founding members Mick Fleetwood on drums and John McVie on bass.
  15. Moody Blues singer-guitarist Justin Hayward has recorded new music for a solo album. “It’s very, very kind of Moodys influenced, a lot of it,” Hayward tells Billboard about the as-yet-untitled set he plans to release next year. Hayward says he’s recorded 14 songs with collaborator Alberto Parodi for his first solo album since 1996’s “The View From the Hill.” As for the Moody Blues, Hayward predicts the group’s next project will be a filmed live concert, possibly with some new band material, that will be used for a DVD and possible television broadcast. The Moodys are touring the U.S. until December 15th, focusing on the “Days of Future Passed” album to commemorate its 45th anniversary.
  16. When Love Comes To Town ~ Jonny Lang & Joss Stone AWESOME!!!
  17. I know, that is why I was so surprised when I got teary eyed. But Elton was in top form that night and he presented that song to his fans with everything in him. That was back in 1980.
  18. Beginnings ~ Chicago....becoming a favorite of mine! Great tune and awesome to see them perfom live!
  19. I remember the first time I saw Elton John, I couldnt wait to hear YOUR SONG, always get teary with that one. But I cried when he sang ROCKET MAN, the way he sang it just hit my emotional pocket.
  20. Thanks Ray. I dont mind being older, but I am spending too much money on hair color!
  21. Who Am I? A face in the mirror is it familiar I don't know tired eyes looking at me shadowing my soul Paled skin drawn can it be mine surely it's not years past diminished softness besprinkled with spots Multiple strands of grey when did this happen where was I dullness surfaces aging gracefully a romantic lie
  22. I was listening to the radio on the way to work, The Springsteen channel on SiriusXM with a guest DJ, can't remember who, but he talked about when you go to a concert there is a song that is your emotional pocket that night...the one that brings the tears to your eyes. Then you can see the same artist again and it will be a different song on that night to hit your emotional pocket. Which is so true depending on what is happening in your life. Emotional pocket, going to remember that one. Cool!
  23. Photojournalist Ken Regan, known for his ability to gain the trust of rock stars and get behind-the-scenes shots, has died in New York. The photographer, who kept his age and other personal details closely guarded secrets, died November 25th. Doctors diagnosed Regan with cancer several years ago, but he only shared the news with a select number of close friends and family in his final weeks, longtime friend Suzanne Guard said. “Privacy was a principle he took very seriously,” she said. It was his emphasis on privacy that allowed Regan to gain entrance to the behind-the-scenes lives of rock stars and celebrities where most journalists were forbidden. Regan’s discretion made him a favorite of the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Sen. Edward Kennedy
  24. Tickets are on sale now for 121212 featuring Bruce & The E Street Band, Paul McCartney, The Who, Eric Clapton, Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder, Dave Grohl, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi and more! Thanks to the generosity of concert organizers, sponsors, and Robin Hood’s board of directors, every single penny from ticket purchases and donations will go to serve the victims of Hurricane Sandy through the Robin Hood Relief Fund.
  25. Thanks Ron, many hugs to you also. I am catching up with the creative writing thread.
