Denny Laine, co-founder of The Moody Blues and Wings, singer, songwriter, and guitarist, died earlier today at the age of seventy-nine. He left The Moody Blues in 1966, but was a member of Wings with Paul and Linda McCartney through the band's full run. He co-wrote Mull of Kintyre with Paul McCartney.

He was only twenty-one here when he sang Go Now, the first hit for The Moody Blues.

Now you've done it, Bob...I'm listening to Days of Future Passed as I'm writing this. (Thanks!) :) The Moody Blues were always one of my favorites. The first incarnation of the group was quite a bit different from what it would become, but that version of Go Now is a great song in its own right. The group went through a special sort of metamorphosis, where instead of a dumpy caterpillar becoming a beautiful butterfly, one beautiful butterfly changed into a different sort of beautiful butterfly. (If I try to expound on this any further, Al's going to start calling me a hippie again!)

Thank you too for the introduction to Lisa Hannigan. Was that you in the back calling out for Blue Moon? ;)

I saw a photo this morning; a couple in a cabin in Kentucky from around 1895 or so. It reminded me of this CD I had that I played very often about 17? years ago. Done by June Carter Cash, backed up by Johnny. On this track, I found her voice perfectly suited for it; really gives it an old time feeling.

Bob I thought you more of a Hippie.I see you have a bit of Hillbilly in you too.Perhaps a HipBilly? June carter always said her sisters had the purty voices thats why she had to be funny,she said it was all she had.

Robert Hunter said "By "box of rain," I meant the world we live on, but "ball of rain" didn't have the right ring to my ear, so box it became, and I don't know who put it there." (from The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics, p138)

This line has always haunted me...

Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be there.

Love in the afternoon. I always liked the concept.

Jerry Garcia created the 'Jerry Garcia Band' aside from the Dead. The one and only album made was "Cats under the Stars". I've always liked this song on that album.

On Sunday, February 9, 1964, The Ed Sullivan Show featured Dutch magician Fred Kaps, the cast of the Broadway musical "Oliver" (including a pre-Monkees Davy Jones), Frank Gorshin (pre-Riddler), the comedy duo of McCall and Brill, and the acrobatic team of Wells and the Four Fays. In addition, British singer Tessie O'Shea performed three songs.

Also appearing and making their live U.S. television debut were four young guys from Liverpool.

Here is their closing number of the night:

I was never a fan of new country, but this is the most skeevy performance I've ever heard. You just don't do something like this. It's cheap and indefensible.
