I used to watch the occasional pro wrestling match.

Yes, LOL, I know it was all faked/choreographed. Didn't make it any less fun to watch. It always cracked me up that people would chide me for watching something so fake, only to see them watching stuff like Gilligan's Island, My Favorite Martian, My Mother the Car, Mister Ed, I Dream of Jeannie, etc etc etc. What, that stuff was "realistic"?

:lol:

RIP Mean Gene.

Bob Einstein, aka Super Dave Osborne, 76 years old. :(

RIP "Super Dave"

:usabiker:

I'll never forget the skit he showed on Letterman once. He is on top of a double deck bus singing Roger Miller's "King of the Road", and the smashes face first into an overpass.

Edit: double post

Also I think he appeared fairly often on Curb Your Enthusiasm.

RIP Daryl Dragon.

I had a crush on Toni Tennille when I was a kid. She was a talented hottie! :wub:

So sorry that she and Daryl divorced in 2014, but they still remained as close friends.
So much about love will keep them together? :shrug:

I'll never forget Dr. Hook's "Cover of the Rolling Stone", "I got stoned and I missed it" and "Sylvia's mother". Those were AM radio gold back in the day. Great memories.

I used to love Super Dave's sudden angry stare at the audience whenever they laughed at his comments about his "stunts" that always went wrong.

I believe Toni Tennille sang backup on the Pink Floyd song, "Not Now John"

If they wrote that song nowadays it would probably have been about meerkats

Oh man, I loved Dr. Hook! My sister and I saw them as the opening act for someone (canít even remember who it was now) a long time ago and they were so funny and great musicians at the same time. Didnít know who they were at the time but ended up going out and looking for their records!



O man, Cover of the Rolling Stone, I got stoned and I missed it are two of my all time favorites.

Both written by Shel Silverstein, as was their other huge hit - "Sylvia's Mother".

(I'm a big Shel Solverstein fan.)

Hmmm.....

Care to take a guess which singer/entertainer considered him a dear friend and cited his talents as being a huge part of his success as an entertainer?

Know, you can't watch this video until you answer.

And yes, Shel Silverstein was one hell of a writer of not just music but also, books, cartoons and pretty much anything else he chose.

Yup, I already knew he was a friend and musical collaborator with Johnny Cash. Same with Bobby Bare. Check out how many songs on Bare's "The Winner (And Other Losers)" were written or co-written by Shel Silverstein.

:yes:

(And I have three of Shel Silverstein's books.)

Ding ding ding we have a winner. Not taking away from Bobby Bare fantastic entertainer in his own right, but, Johnny Cash? Well, when someone is cited as someone who has influenced countless artists well outside of their Genre that is all you need to know.
Silverstein being a huge part of that speaks volumes about him as well. Shel was an original who loved what he did and did what he loved. I think that for him the $ $ was a bonus and appreciated, but none the less he simply loved doing it. Also, to this day a number of Japanese TV shows still use Cash's music as bumpers and in various ads. It has always been fun to show my in laws who the artist who performed it was and play the whole clip.

Dean Ford, lead singer and songwriter with classic Scottish pop/rock band Marmalade. Died aged 72, on New Year's Day.

http://en.wikipedia....Marmalade_(band)


Underrated band, and Reflections is IMO one of the best pop songs ever written. RIP.




I just spent the past hour or two teaching myself how to sing & play this one, in memory of Dean Ford. I don't know why I didn't learn it long ago, I've loved it since it was brand-new. And it's real easy to play on guitar - The chord pattern just repeats over and over throughout the whole song.

Of course without harmony vocals it will never sound as good as the record, but it's good enough for me.

:D

Also one of my favorites. As long as you weren't using neighborhood alley cats for your backing vocals... it's all good.

RIP Mr. Swift.

His duet with Michael McDonald (Yah Mo Be There) is my favorite from him. He had a great voice.
