Lotta things going down these days, but that’s not news to anyone. In the meantime, have a great weekend and maybe we’ll see better things tomorrow. See you then.
Charles looked over the barren, desolate plain as the sun slowly set. He knew he wasn’t going to get much sleep tonight. Too many foot prints. There was blood in the air.

From Wiki: Don Nix began his career playing saxophone for the Mar-Keys, which also featured Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn and others.

What a convergence of talent at the right time and the right place. God Bless Stax Records.
Have a soulful weekend, folks, be back here tomorrow.
Big Daddy‘s take on Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” is pure awesome. Check out their mashup of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – you’ll love it. You might even be able to find a clean download somewhere before it’s gone (hint hint nudge nudge).
Then there’s this Big Daddy I never heard of. Pure brilliance happens within the first 60 seconds. See how long you can stand it before you click on
You might still be able to find this great parody on the internest if you know where to look. It’s one of those rare recordings that you could play in the background at a party and few would notice until someone says “Wait a minute! That’s not Bob!”
Copyright lawyers knocked it down years ago and spoiled the fun. Go figure.
