Re: “Grammys? Anyone?

Are we all in agreement? Ray Charles' rendition of "America" -- beautiful. Zac Brown Band's version, not so much.

Re: “Bad Trends In Music, Part Two: Unimaginative Band Names

MM, my dad wasn't too happy when I sauntered down for breakfast in the summer of '84 wearing a LIVE PCPPEP pep t-shirt, after seeing the Butthole Surfers @ the Metroplex the night before. nowadays, according to People of Walmart, we have folks walking around in t-shirts that say stuff like "dick eater" or "I wouldn't fuck you if it was for practice."

some sorta-stupid names can transcend the inanity, thanks to great music.

and I love the whole tribute-band-name genre. minikiss, anyone?

but while I liked the guys in the Little Rock band Ho-hum -- and also liked their music, I never understood why anyone would go to the effort of forming a band, writing songs, recording, touring etc. with such a deliberately mediocre name. there, the irony was lost.

Re: “Grammys? Anyone?

AE, thanks for pointing that out! I think I went to make dinner the minute I heard that Zac Brown would be coming on after the commercials...

did you catch Leon Russell at the Hi-Tone last year?

Re: “Big Star Boxed Up

pretty sure it was Chilton's folks' house, on Montgomery. John Fry took the photo!

Re: “Elvis Presley's Mystery Train (Station)

I always thought White's Station was the Belmont Grill?
