NEVER TRUST ANYONE WHO LISTENS TO HIP-HOP!
This is only my opinion, and it is not meant to offend...but I strongly feel that anyone who listens to this so called "music" which today is known as "Hip-Hop" will eventually screw you over if you allow them to! You see...that stuff breeds negativity, with no love anywhere to be found in the lyrics or the "music". The negative vibes stay in their heads and they think it is ok to hurt people. I also want to stress that I use the term "music" loosely in this case. Love needs to be nurtured in music. I know that a lot of the rock and roll I have listed on this blog is short on love in a lot of cases, but I have a lot of it posted here for nostalgic purposes. There is plenty of "love music" out there without having to resort to rap or hip-hop. Take a talented 70s group such as "The Stylistics". Listen to some of their songs and you will see what I mean by "love music". It is music written from the heart. Sometimes artists write "love music" from the ashes of pain in their lives. When that happens you get a result which breeds realism and true love. Think about what I have said here when you hear some of that nonsense they play on pop radio today. Money is the object of the game today, not LOVE!!!! -DRUMBO-

HEY, CHECK OUT THE LINKS ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THIS PAGE
The links that are at the right hand side of the page should be of interest to anyone who has loved music over the past 40 years. Please check them out. You will find videos, record reviews, political wisdom and a host of other cool stuff. I am available for music discussion anytime through my email address which is firstname.lastname@example.org I also trade music with anyone who is interested. I just acquired a cool Hot Tuna 1978 hooded sweatshirt which should get a lot of heads turning since most of the bozos who listen to that rap garbage out there have never heard of Hot Tuna before. OK, carry on my musical brothers and sisters. "Let there be songs...to fill the air".
OH GREAT ALBUM ART...WE MISS YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!
I just wanted to comment on the loss of the great album cover. I can't stand the fact that we are forced to accept this tiny version of album art which comes with these cds today. I remember that I used to take albums with me to the bathroom. I would sit on the toilet and read them as you would a book. I would study the artwork, the information, the record label, the inner sleeve, any and all inserts and posters which may have been included. I don't care about the tiny booklets with these cds. The change really sucks.....where have those days of wonderful art and music gone? I'll never forget those days. And you will never see days like that again. The kids today truly don't know what they missed. Oh what a time it was.
HOW DO WE THANK THE INFAMOUS BOOTLEG 8-TRACK?
Remember those long lost days when you would pick up a new 8 track tape?.....many of them were "bootleg" or "pirate" tapes. They usually had a glossy label with some type of psychedelic art or some fancy lettering and bright colors. They sold for less than legitimate releases and we went crazy for them. Many days and nights were spent driving around with friends blasting Jethro Tull, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin...the list could go on forever. And boy did we smoke...cigarettes, pot....one guy I knew stoked up a whiffle bat...yes, that's right...a plastic whiffle ball bat....we were that fucked up! I remember taking a hit from that and almost choking to death on the burning, smoldering yellow plastic..but hey, we were crazy, it was the 70s, and we loved every fucking minute of it!!!!!
