    Happy Birthday David Byrne who is 63 today...formerly of the Talking Heads....he was born in Scotland...his family moved around when he was young...living in Canada and the US...before he entered high school he could play the guitar...accordion and violin...but all that talent wouldn't be enough to join his middle school choir as he was deemed to be too "off key and withdrawn"..by the age of 5 he had learned how to play the harmonica...David is left handed...but plays the guitar right handed...he doesn't own a car and is a big cycling fan and has contributed to articles in the New York Times on cycling...he has worked in theatre...film...and even opera....a multi talented performer...

    Never appreciated him "back in the day", but have grown fond of his quirky music. Great talent.

    I was the same way...I thought the band was like Devo...kind of a novelty...but the talking heads surround music is underrated...

    I just finished watching the Ted Nugent Rock Icon segment on the Palladia channel that I had recorded earlier...it shows the evolution of Ted's guitar skills and also his personal side...one of my favorite classic rock songs features a young Ted Nugent with the Amboy Dukes in the 1968 release of this song..

    Its sad to discover that B.B.King died last night at age 89. A few years ago I saw BB in Birmingham (UK) (with John Mayall as the support act), a great show, BB will be sadly missed. R.I.P.

    I was interested to see that B.B. King's favorite singer was Frank Sinatra...who he credited with getting black entertainers involved in the music business...

    hard to imagine that this was written and performed nearly half century ago.
    in so many instances they were way ahead of "modern" trends of their time.
    unbelievable how much unappreciated their contribution into prog.rock.

    I've been seeing some good music based segments on tv lately...Rock Icon shows(Palladia channel) about Ted Nugent...Geddy Lee...and Ann Wilson of Heart...plus Kansas:Miracles Out of Nowhere ..and one that was on Showtime...Lost Songs:The Basement Tapes Continued...which was an interesting project with some musicians using some lyrics from the Bob Dylan Basement Tapes collection..and trying to mimic how they were done by some artists getting together that had never played as a band with each other...here is a description of the show

    During the Showtime documentary one artist stood out....her voice was just so impressive...her name is Rhiannon Giddens
