    [QUOTE]No, but I'm still blind-sided by your critique. You are better at it than many so-called experts. Never saw the word "dystopian" used here. The reason I use Youtubes instead of images is that the message is 100 times more powerful...and diverse enough to get by the censors.

    Thanks. Clever you to get by the sensors. FTR, I never saw Gram Parsons (yes, he was a huge druggie, and it killed him) connected to the present leadership team. Lincoln-Parsons-Wastefield-Obama. That's out there. Here's guessing Softy doesn't listen to NPR. (And if the Bush Admin wasn't such a f-up, Obama never would have been elected, and Karl Rove would have been right about his vision of Republican dominance for the forseeable future.)

    You have an interesting point there. The only positive thing about Bush ended up being all the negatives.

    Softy will elect Wake Gov. before he'll ever listen to NPR.
    Where I live, NPR is a jazz mix. I'm into traditional jazz. NPR on weekends is terrific. They play a nice blend of blues. Some great stuff.

    There's a better chance of him voting Wake as the next Mr. America, or insist he should be signed to a 20 yr contract; at Sabathia $$.

    [QUOTE]I'm vaguely familiar with Gram Parsons. Pleasant harmonic sound. Not into VU or Joy Division, although the latter sounds like a description of this board. In fact, this may describe some posters... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhsimgIkSVw&feature=related

    I like this song too. It was actually a hit record back in the day. A great Live Performance on the Smothers Bros. Show. BTW, were these guys ever not under the influence? Very 60s.

    The one even my kids know, from a performance just recently (2006). It sounds like he's lost his voice. All in all, he's in good shape (especially with all those drugs) for a guy in his 60s..

    Obama and Parsons both like narcotics and nicotine.

    I'm not sure about Obama and narcotics, but I'd rather have Obama perpetually on ACID than Bush running things.

    And "W"'s had a few toots and benders in his day; rumor has it he's on one right now.

    Bush isn't running things. Now, who would you rather have?

    Be sure about Obama and narcotics. Be as sure as when he said he used narcotics, back when he went by Barry and wasn't hired by the DNC.

    I agree, LSD use could only imporve the Obama administration. It would be a first, which was the main thurst of why the DNC put puppet strings and money in is poor pockets.

    It was never about the qualifications of Obama. It was about making history for the sake of the DNC and history. His handlers have been the worst administration in U.S. history.

    Steve, the question isn't whether you would rather have Obama on acid. The question is whether complaining about Bush and promising more entitlements will be a winning re-election formula to distract voters from the economic reality and policies of socialist pay to play team Obama. Goldman pays to play.

    W, Daddy, or both? LOL

    No it wasn't Daddy, he was busy boning DC hotties so he didn't have to look across the sheets every AM. (Although I DID see them kissing during the '05 WS; as Bill Maher said; don't encourage them)

    Saw this earlier today; classic flick & song.

    Getting away from the live stuff, which I think compromises song credibility, this is a sub-plot of MONSTER...

    Interesting accoustical guitar/organ mix/subject matter.

    Good stuff; I couldn't tell if that was a midget, a baby, or some photo trickery.

    I'd say a baby: the message is more exposive that way.

    The evolution of John Kay is interesting.
    He joined SPARROW, and you could see country roots.
    STEPPENWOLF was obviously earmarked by his voice and that trademark organ sound.
    Their two biggest hits Kay did not write.

    What grounded the music was some terrific arranging and musical innovation that can easily to transferred to a rock-country sound w/o the organ and the voice.

    Then he goes off on his own and again he explores a rocky country sound.
    Here's an example - a "country" classic: (at the :20 second mark)

    allmusic.com has a good breakdown of some of his songs: Sookie Sookie, Hey Lawdie Mama, Ride With Me, Rock Me, The Pusher, Magic Carpet Ride, BTBW

    He was born in Germany (Prussia) in the midst of WWII

    I know. He did a song called gang bluessomething or other that briefly spoke of his war experience as a kid. He had a war of his own trying to wrest the rights to many of the STEPPENWOLF songs so that he could re-create the band. Law suits and many bitter feelings ensued. It took several years but he finally won.


    They toured and incorporated much new music: bland and loud by comparison, but the idea was to win over the newer generation. I don't think any of it ever charted.
    But I'm sure he revamped his $$$ losses from the legal BS.

    A very soulful individual, but he could be ruthless and cold as ice.
    His voice will likely never be duplicated.

    Agreed; illustrated well (and great playing by the band) in Rock Me, one of my favorites. I'm still trying to figure out how they made those sounds in MCR. However, the biker anthem BTBW shall be the one to put in the time vault. (As`started during the '64 World's Fair in NY). Amazing that he's NOT in the R&R HOF, but Olivia Newton John (who wasn't bad, but it's POP) is.

    I gotta believe Kay will be there before it's all said and done.
    STEPPENWOLF was one of the most influential rock groups ever.
