Does anyone remember Dina singing "Lost and lonely
Children" or Penny singing "People" or Tommy M. singing "People Get Ready"& playing his guitar. :smile:   or also Penny singing "Summertime". Everytime I hear those songs today I think of them. Nice memories for me. OK the Dina song she made up- but it was appropiate for how I personally felt at the time.

I used to be a Johnny Winter fanatic.  I still love his old music.  I saw him in the late 70's in Jacksonville and he was so good.  He came here to Palm Beach County a few years ago.  I dragged my husband to see him, telling him he wouldn't believe how what an awesome blues guy he was.

I was STUNNED when I watched two guys help him onto the stage.  He shuffled up to the front and never said a word.  His playing was not so good and he didn't sing.  The big thing for the evening was he spun around.....once.  He is in his late 50's I think.  He looked about 90.

I think he did heroin about 100 times too many.  It was very sad to see someone so talented completely waste their life.

NRBQ was a huge favorite of mine in college in the late 70s, pre-Seed...they had a great hippie vibe and a great album, Scraps and Workshop...why the song "Magnet" didn't become a hit I'll never know...

They have continued to put out interesting and sometimes great music...I saw them at Wilbert's in Cleveland about 10 years ago and they were fantastic, one of the best shows I've ever seen.

Fran, I do have a Penny in my brain too. If I'm picturing the right woman, she was kind of quiet, kind, and attractive physically. That's about all I'm getting right now

Hear me people: We now have to deal with another race - small and feeble when our fathers first met them, but now great and overbearing. Strangely enough they have a mind to till the soil and the love of possessions is a disease with them. These people have made many rules which the rich may break but the poor may not. They take their tithes from the poor and weak to support the rich and those who rule.

How strange...somethings as simple as a name triggered a memory that I never would have in a million years thought of.
I wonder whatever happened to Penny?

I just hope it doesn't cause an abe-cess. One positive side affect though, I seem to be capable of seeing two sides to every issue. since its introduction, I can make cents out of most any idea.

Thom, they are really good. Next Hootie and the Blowfish, maybe?

I remember Zappa, Black Sabbath, Tull at Pirates world.  Also remember several local guys that were very good at guitar.  HH guys who played at great local parties.  I often wonder how I survived with so many drugs. But, I have survived well!

Legalizing drugs would simultaneously reduce the amount of crime and raise the quality of law enforcement. Can you conceive of any other measure that would accomplish so much to promote law and order?

I concur. These guys are hot. I've heard John's talent for a few years now, and am thrilled he has found a good band to play with. As for the signing question, here is their statement on that from  http://myspace.com/whirledbeet  

"Record Label:  WB won't sign over our music/lives for nothing! ::drummer::
 
Type of Label:  Self-Produced"
