Saturday Badfinger Fix

We need to hear Badfinger right now. In my case, it is a strictly palliative dose. But you're a wreck. It's life and death for you.

Bonus convulsion-causing-Kenny Rogers-with-Helen Reddy's-haircut appearance.

Thanks for the wake-up call. A twin Gibson SG line up, too!

Is the bass player just a scosh cross-eyed?

Play some Bad Company, too. That was the very first date I had with Mr. Charming.

So you're old enough to remember when Kenny Rogers was considered "rock" music?

Love your blog...and furniture!

Hi misterarthur- how are ye? Our favorite gibson standard guitar player is Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Badfinger's a close second.

Ruth Anne- He's British. His eyes are prolly alright, but his teeth are crooked.

The first song I ever performed in a rock band was Bad Company, IIRC. Or maybe it was Captain and Tennille. I don't remember. It was the American Legion Post, and we couldn't play the Nat Anth, and they thought we could, but wouldn't, and got angry with us. I think I was fifteen.

Captain and Tennille. Heh. I'll do anything for money.

Hi Jerry. Thanks mucho. I have a Kenny Rogers brush with semi-greatness story, but I'll save it for another time.

Ah, but as much as I melt at their music, it breaks my heart to see and hear them. Two suicides in a four-man group? Sad beyond telling.
