Lemmy Kilmister

Lemmy Must Not Die

Don Henley must die.

So sang rockabilly punk-rocker Mojo Nixon on the 1990 album Otis, released during the height of Henley’s popularity as a solo artist. I don’t quite agree with the sentiment (I’m too much of a pussy and would probably have written a song called “Don Henley Must Retire” if I were a rockabilly punk-rocker), but I appreciate the spirit in which it was intended.

Judge Not, Lest Ye Be Wearing a Bra

Have you heard? Starting next season, American Idol will go by the name of Celebrity Judge, since that is apparently the only thing people give a shit about anymore on that show.

Perhaps I made that up, but when was the last time anyone discussed the actual contestants around the water cooler or in the gossip rags? The last bunch of seasons has been about “Ooh look. Steven Tyler has degenerated into a drag queen and a whack job,” and “Check it out; Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey are about to get in a fist fight.”

I hurried into the local Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF department store to grab1 CISM training some last CISM training minute Chirsmas gifts. I looked at all the people and grumbled2 to myself.

Once again I kind of mumbled3 to Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF 210-060 practice exam myself at the prices of all these toys, and wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself in the doll aisle5. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a Cisco 210-060 Dumps little boy about 5 holding Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF CISM training a lovely doll.He kept touching6 her hair 70-347 pdf and he held her so CISM training gently. I could not seem Examguideview to help myself. I Cisco 210-060 Dumps just Cisco 210-060 Dumps kept Itexamplan loking over at the little boy and 70-347 pdf wondered who the Itexamplan doll was for. I watched him turn 210-060 practice exam to a Itexamplan woman and he called his aunt by name and said, “Are you sure I don’t Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF have Cisco 210-060 Dumps enough money?” She replied a bit impatiently, “You know that Cisco 210-060 Dumps you don’t have enough money 70-347 pdf for it.” The aunt told the little boy not to go anywhere that she had to go and get some other things and Examguideview would be back in a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The boy continued to hold the doll. After a CISM training bit I 210-060 practice exam asked the boy who the doll was for. He Itexamplan said, “It is the 70-347 pdf doll my 210-060 practice exam 210-060 practice exam sister wanted so badly Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF for Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa would bring it. “I told him that Examguideview Itexamplan maybe Santa was going to bring it . He said, “No, Santa can’t go where my sister is…. I have to give the doll to my Mama to take to her. 70-347 pdf “I asked him where his siter was.

My Daddy 210-060 practice exam says that Mamma is going CISM training to have to go be CISM training with her.” My heart Cisco 210-060 Dumps nearly stopped beating.

Itexamplan I told him to tell her to wait till Cisco 210-060 Dumps I got back Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF from the store.” Then he Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF asked me if i wanted to see his picture. I told him I’d love to. He pulled out some picture he’d had taken 210-060 practice exam at the front of the store. Cisco 210-060 Dumps Itexamplan He said, “I want my Mama Cisco 210-060 Dumps to take Itexamplan this with her Examguideview so the dosen’t ever forget me. I 210-060 practice exam love my Mama so very much and I wish she dind Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF not have to leave Examguideview me.But Daddy says she will need to be with my sister.” I saw that the little boy Cisco 210-060 Dumps had lowered his head and had grown so qiuet. While he was not looking 210-060 practice exam CISM training I reached into Examguideview my purse and pilled out a handful CISM training of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we count that miney one more time?” He grew excited and 210-060 practice exam said, “Yes,I just know it has CISM training to be enough.” So I 70-347 pdf slipped my money in with his and we 210-060 practice exam began to Examguideview count it . Itexamplan 70-347 pdf Of course it was Examguideview plenty for 210-060 practice exam the doll. He Itexamplan softly said, Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF “Thank you 70-347 pdf Jesus for giving me enough money.” Then the boy said, “I CISM training just Itexamplan asked Examguideview Jesus to give me enough money to buy this doll Itexamplan so Mama can take it with her to give my sister.

She loves white 210-060 practice exam rose Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF so much. “In a few minutes the aunt came back and I wheeled Itexamplan my cart away. I could not keep from CISM training thinking about the little Examguideview boy as I finished my shoppong in a Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF ttally different spirit than when I had started. Cisco 210-060 Dumps And I kept remembering a story I had seen in the newspaper several days earlier about a drunk driver hitting a car and killing7 a little girl and Cisco 210-060 Dumps the Mother was in serious condition. The family was deciding on whether to remove the Cisco 210-060 Dumps life 70-347 pdf support. Now surely this little boy did not Examguideview 210-060 practice exam Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF belong with that story.Two days later I read in the CISM training paper where the family had disconnected the life support and the young woman had Examguideview died. I could not forget the little boy and just kept Cisco 210-060 Dumps wondering if Oracle 1Z0-061 PDF the two were somehow connected.

I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his CISM training little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

I was all set to write about the much-hyped and allegedly scandalous new A&E series Bates Motel this week, until I watched it. I sat there going, “Huh. How about that,” for an hour. If you plan to mix good acting and lurid subject matter, you might want to take a gander at American Horror Story first.

In the drab first half of the pilot episode, the mother and son team of Norma and Norman Bates (Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore) buy a foreclosed hotel and begin renovations.

Question: What is 72 years old, struts across stage wearing five-inch stiletto heels, and can still blow the roof off of a concert hall for two-and-a-half straight hours?

If you said, “True soul survivor, music icon, and Rock-and-Roll Hall of Famer Darlene Love,” you’d not only be correct, you’d also be constructing sentences that are eerily like mine. And you might be disappointed that the above question was not a set-up for a dirty punch line.

Well, Darlene Love is no joke, and that’s our music lesson for today.

Just Say No to Teenage Girls

Saying “no” to teenage girls is a wise policy for anyone, especially schoolteachers and congressional reps. But today I’m talking about specific teenage girls: The current group of screamers appearing on NBC’s The Voice, who were so successful at getting the coaches to turn their chairs around at the beginning of the competition.

If you haven’t seen the show, the four coaches – country star Blake Shelton, Maroon 5 lead vocalist Adam Levine, beloved Mouseketeer Christina Aguilera, and pop/soul singer (and modern-day Elton John) Cee Lo Green – built teams of 16 singers during the blind audition phase of the contest… and then spent several weeks making mostly bad decisions about which ones to keep and which to send packing during the myriad battles, playoffs, knock-out rounds, and whatever other euphemisms for “singing competition” NBC’s writers could dream up.

I understand that I am not the target audience for screaming teenage girl singers, but really, who is? Katy Perry doesn’t scream. Rihanna doesn’t. Taylor Swift doesn’t. Hell, Adele can actually sing! Those are the young, trendy female pop stars the world has embraced. So what does the world know that NBC’s expert panel doesn’t? They know that music listeners are not dying for the next Celine Dion. PleaseGodNoAnythingButThat.

Billie Joe Armstrong flipping finger

Green Day: Too Much is Not Enough. Or is it?

My hypothesis on the real reason Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong smashed his guitar on stage at the iHeartRadio festival this weekend: He was preemptively trying to earn back some rock-and-roll cred after agreeing to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres Show this Thursday. Billie Joe is quoted as saying, “I’m not fucking Justin Bieber, you motherfucker!” before wrecking his Les Paul. If I ever get so worked up that I smash my guitar, I’ll probably say the same thing.

Ha ha. Green Day was going to perform live on Ellen, the least rocking show on TV since Midday Live with Bill Boggs in the late ‘70s. I guess the band’s members feel they are missing out on the stay-at-home, liberal-but-still-Christian mom/grandmom audience. I see a cross promotion with JCPenny in their future.

She was sampled by Wu Tang Clan on their groundbreaking 1993 album, Enter the Wu Tang (36 Chambers). She’s been covered by Alicia Keys. But, to most of the world, Wendy Rene is best known as the girl who decided not to get on an airplane.

The plane in question took off on December 10, 1967, carrying soul music legend Otis Redding and a group of musicians to a gig in Wisconsin. Rene, Redding’s protégé, was supposed to perform her farewell show that night, but she changed her mind and they left without her. A couple of hours later, the plane went down, killing all but one on board.

Lost in the tragedy is the unusual fact that a budding star and gifted songwriter was to play her farewell show, by choice, at the age of 20. As if taking a cue from the hit tune “Walk Away Renee” by Left Banke – released that same year – Wendy Rene up and quit the music biz, voluntarily relegating herself to obscurity while the small catalog of recordings she made for Stax Records gathered dust in a vault (other than the odd track on a collection, bootlegs, or old vinyl singles owned by record collectors).
