Music for an eclipse

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/pIKsHh3BFPI?ecver=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
We're hoping for a "Sunny Afternoon" but I'm afraid it will be mostly cloudy.
We’re just hours away from the eclipse. People are traveling all over the world to see the sun and moon come together. For some of us, it’ll be our last chance to witness this phenomenon. It’s easy to find a viewing party….and if there’s a party, there needs to be music. Here’s some tunes to... Read more »

It's a great week to be Paul McCartney

It's a great week to be Paul McCartney
Paul McCartney had a special week. You may be thinking, when isn’t it a great time to be Sir Paul…and you’d be right. Sure, he’s had his times of despair. The death of wife #1, a messy divorce from wife #2 and the fans of Kanye West not knowing who he is, but all in... Read more »

The Influence of Chuck Berry

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/5gbb1gLhI3o" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
All the Beatles loved Chuck Berry. John Lennon said if you were going to give Rock and Roll a different name you'd call it Chuck Berry. Here they sing "Rock and Roll Music".
Legendary music pioneer Chuck Berry died yesterday at age 90. One way to tell and artist’ influence is by the number of his songs recorded by other great musicians. There are hundreds of Berry tunes covered by musicians in all genres of music. Here’s a look at some of them: Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, Jagger, Richards,... Read more »

Playlist for the Trump administration

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/eB5bIa4zLEE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
In a town of cronyism, Donald Trump really is the "New Kid In Town".
During campaigns politicians have songs that they think relate to them. They play them at all their rally’s and their conventions. Why not have songs that describe the new Presidency? Here are some tunes for the new President: In spite of the snarkiness of these songs, I really so want things to go well for... Read more »

From "When I'm 64" to Medicare

From "When I'm 64" to Medicare
I was born in 1952. The olden days. Back to the time when kids walked two miles to school in a blizzard and were happy to do it. Back in the days when people made distinctions about owning a black & white or color television…if they even owned one at all. Okay…okay…we get it. You’re... Read more »

A personal look at 2016: Goodbye and don't come back

The year started with the death of David Bowie. It was shocking until we found out he had been fighting Cancer for 18 months. It was the start of the year of death for musicians. Frey, Prince, Russell, Haggard, Cohen among the many.
It’s the final day of 2016. That marks the end of the fourth calendar year of this blog. FOUR YEARS!!! Wow…is it like college where I get a piece of paper and have to leave? I started writing this as a way to tell stories about my life with Parkinson’s Disease. I figured there were... Read more »

John Lennon, Mick Jagger and the circle of life

John Lennon, Mick Jagger and the circle of life
December 8th. It’s always a tough day. You can’t help but think and maybe obsess about John Lennon on this day. It’s the anniversary of his assassination and I tend to do the latter. I usually spend some…okay a lot…okay okay all of it listening to Beatles music. I know, not a lot different than... Read more »

My seven step program for getting over the election

1. Ice cream. I did say I've been eating a lot of junk but comfort food is good. Moderation is the key. I'm working on that.
I’m Down. I’m really down. I’m down. Down on the ground. How can you laugh when you know I’m down? How can you laugh? I’ve had a tough week. I admit I’m not handling the election results well. I took it very personally. I may be understating that. I’m handling the results bad…really bad…really fucking... Read more »

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
