  1. One of my personal favorite guitarist to ever grace this planet, Mr. Stevie Ray Vaughan showing his love for Jimi with "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)":
  2. Not as universal well known as Jimi Hendrix, here's the late, great Roy Buchanan with his take on the same classic, "Hey Joe":
  3. Speaking of Jimi Hendrix, most folks aren't aware that his hit song, "Hey Joe" was in fact a cover song, like "All Along the Watchtower". Although Jimi's version is, indeed, the superior version, I thought a few here might be interested in hearing the original version. Billy Roberts here with the rarely heard, and even more rarely known of version:
  4. Yet another incredible cover tune from the Isley Brothers. This one features the amazing guitar skills of Ernie Isley, whom Jimi Hendrix learned a great deal from, back when he roomed with the Isley Brothers prior to becoming famous. Here with their take on the Seals & Croft hit, "Summer Breeze":
  5. The sad fact is, these two clowns will most likely generate a substantial amount of financial wealth for simply being a universal social media joke. Foolish me. Here I've wasted all my time practicing the guitar and honing my craft when all I had to do was dress up like Sideshow Bob.
  6. Third shot!?! That's nothin', kids. This is what THEY have in mind... From Breitbart:Moderna Co-Founder on Coronavirus Vaccines: There May Be ‘Continuous Need for Boosting’ (From the story) Moderna chairman and co-founder Noubar Afeyan said on Tuesday that there may be a “continuous need” for coronavirus booster shots, similar to the annual flu vaccine. Speaking on Tuesday’s Mornings with Maria, Afeyan said it will be difficult to know “until we look in hindsight” because “we just don’t know how this virus is going to travel from being a pandemic all the way to potentially an endemic virus we have to get used to living with.” “If that’s where it ends up, then it may well need an annual booster, potentially varying on a year-to-year or every few years’ basis as the virus varies, similarly to what we do with the flu vaccine and so I think if we end up there, there will be a continuous need for boosting,” he continued before touting the company’s trials for an mRNA flu vaccine and suggesting that they will attempt to combine vaccines at some point in the future.
  7. I've written and recorded a few that would fit in this category. My music is over on Soundcloud as The King Kitty Band. A few of my ditties that could be considered "protest songs": "Shakin' in Your Boots" - Written just as the Covidmania was starting to break and folks were beginning to wear mask and social distance themselves, prior to it being made mandatory. I saw folks lining up to get into a Trader Joe's, the first store in my area to mandate masking and social distancing. It pissed me off. I went home and wrote the lyrics as I sang them into the mic, without even thinking or writing them down. "Everyone Burns" - Inspired by the BLM movement and the George Floyd incident. Another one I wrote the lyrics to as I sang them, from off the top of my head. I wrote it from the perspective of an individual, such as Floyd, with the opening lines, "Why does it seem like my life only matter when I get killed by a cop? And now to show me how much I really matter, the violence never stops. Hundreds dying out in the Windy City, and yet not one single tear. Why is it, I'm getting all your pity, when we die every year?" I recalled being a bit nervous about posting it, thinking I may face some backlash. Instead, all I got were crickets. Oh well. "Ballad of Johnny" - This is the companion piece to "Everyone Burns", in that it was regarding the various ANTIFA/BLM "peaceful protest" that broke out a little while back. A simple little sing-a-long number (second verse, same as the first). I like for this one to be played right after "Everyone Burns", much like Led Zeppelin's "Heartbreaker/Living Loving Maid" used to be played on the ol' Classic Rock radio stations. The Rise of the Sheep, Part 1 - Song by an angry mob of sheep rebelling against their keepers. The Same Song and Dance - Though I'm in the US, I wrote this for the folks in the UK with regards to the NHS frontline workers who somehow managed to make TikTok videos while their hospitals were booked to capacity due to the global pandemic. Not sure many here in the States understand the lyrics about "clapping hands" and "banging pots & pans". Still, it has a good beat and you can dance to it, as they used to say on the old American Bandstand. "Doom and Gloom" - My ode to mainstream media. "Bakersfield, CA" - Not necessarily a protest song, but it focuses on the homeless situation in the US. I'm not on any social media sites and I've deleted my YouTube page after several attempts from them to censor me and my music. So, I'm not looking nor expecting to get any "followers" from this post. All my songs are free to download over at Soundcloud, as well. Thanks for listening! And now for something completely different; an man with three buttocks.
  8. Punk Rock, as it has come to be known, actually originated in the United States. New York, to be precise. Though many little clubs around town had sown the seeds, it was mainly at CBGB's with bands such as The Ramones, Talking Heads, Television and Blondie (just to name a few). It wasn't called "punk" by any of it's unintentional originators, it was just rock 'n roll. It was a rebellion, of sorts, against "arena rock" bands, long guitar solos, huge stage productions, etc. It was an attempt to go back to rock's roots. The label "punk" came from a "rock journalist" at the time (who I think of as a dick, so I won't credit his name here), not from any of the bands. I've always found it both frustrating and amusing when folks refer to punk rock and immediately associate it with the UK. The look we have come to associate with punk rock was created in the UK; spiked hair, safety pins in the face, et al. Though it was just a marketing concept derived by Malcolm Mclaren, to help sell of his second clothing items in his clothing shop (as has been previously pointed out in this thread). The Sex Pistols were as real as The Monkees, just a prefabricated band designed to cash in on a brief musical trend. Ironically enough, Johnny Rotten auditioned for The Sex Pistols by lip syncing to The Monkees' song, "Stepping Stone", as it played on the jukebox in a local shop. Punk, as it has become known, was actually a brief period in musical history. It would soon morph into "New Wave". New Wave was nothing more than Pop Rock. The establishment need things to be categorized, they like things to have labels. It's much easy to market things this way. I've no complaints with New Wave, as several great bands came out of that genre. A few generations later, bands such as Sum 41, Green Day, Blink 182 would label themselves as Punk. I always found that to be quite amusing. The last things a real punk would do would be to call themselves a Punk, for one. Plus, many of these modern "punks" had no genuine working class backgrounds, such as the blokes in Blink 182. They were all raised in a well-to-do suburban community, their parents bought them all their music gear, their parents supported their musical aspirations by allowing them to practice their God awful claptrap at home. Hardly the makings of a "punk". At least, in this respect, The Sex Pistols had more credibility as "punks". Here in the Covid Generation, the reality of these modern day "punks" has come to light, as we've seen so many of them coming out in support of mandated "vaccines", social distancing, face masks and segregating audiences based on their "vaccine" status. To several generations of folks who've grown up with these modern "punks", it would seem the idea of punk rock is nothing more than dressing in a particular manor and being a mediocre musician blasting out bar chords/power chords. In other words, just putting on an act. The original intent from those who unintentionally help create Punk Rock; no BS, basic, straightforward rock'n roll seems to have been lost. Most of what passes as Rock in today's world isn't even Blues based. I see bands such as U2 as being huge contributors to the derailing of Rock's Blues base. Popular music's departure from it's Blues based roots can be felt in just about all forms of popular music, in our current musical landscape. The black community's music is no different. With Rap dominating their airwaves within most of the black community,very little genuine soul can be found anymore. Punk Rock was/is nothing more than a marketing tool, the great rock 'n roll swindle. As a musician/songwriter myself, I would avoid such a label like the plague. Rock 'n roll is good enough for me. Originally, rock 'n roll music IS punk in it's attitude and presentation. It's music that breaks the rules and defies authority. Just have a look at old Jerry Lee Lewis performances. Now he was the original Punk Rocker. Little Richard, Chuck Berry and even Elvis Presley were far more Punk (early in their careers) than any of these current crop of "punks". Hell, go back even further and watch the great Howlin' Wolf in various stage performances. Sadly, there is very little in the mainstream music landscape that is genuine and real, least of all Punk. Well, kids, that's jut my two cents on the topic. Thanks for allowing me to vent a bit. Now...get of my lawn, ya damned kids!
  9. Ain't that the truth! I thought the same thing when this story initially broke. Grandma and grandpa dying in the old folks home during the lockdowns...oh well...but start messin' with cute puppies, time to go after Fauci with pitchforks and torches! But, if that's what it takes to wake up the rest of the flock, so be it.
  10. The original version was recorded by Charlie Ryan back in 1955, but it wasn't a big hit until 1972 when Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen...featuring the master of the Telecaster, Bill Kirchen...put out their cover of this classic, "Hot Rod Lincoln":
  11. If you aren't familiar with The Smiths or Morrissey, this might not be as funny to you as it was to me.
  12. From Jon Rappoport's "No More Fake News" Blog" America’s Frontline Doctors agree: murdered infants at the heart of vaccine research “Not only are the babies delivered alive, horrifically, their organs are often removed when they are still alive. This is how they got the HEK293 kidney cells used in the manufacture of the vaccines and why Pfizer wanted it to remain a secret…”
  13. It Wasn’t Just Beagles and Monkeys – Fauci’s NIH Also Funded Medical Experiments on AIDS Orphans in NY City From the story @ The Gateway Pundit: Dr. Fauci’s NIH was also caught funding experiments on AIDS orphans at a New York City hospital in 2004. The Fauci NIH approved experiments on hundreds of New York City orphans. Government agencies and pharmaceutical companies used the orphans in deadly AIDS drug trials.
  14. That would have been by me. And yes, very much worth the time to watch. I suggest a double feature, with this being the first film, then watching "Network" right afterwards. Andy Griffith gives an amazing performance. Quite a departure from his Mayberry sheriff character.
  15. In your proposed scenario (mandatory "vaccinations"), I would imagine an exemption notice would hold as much value as Confederate money following the Civil War. I appreciate and sympathize with your concerns, as I imagine such changes will take place as soon as next year, rather than two or three years. Here in the States, I feel the barometer for this will be when people on Social Security, disability and various government financial supplements begin to be put in a position where they must get the government shots in order to still receive their benefits. Thus far, the US government has been relying on private businesses to do their bidding. We are just starting to see the effects of that as thousands are now walking away from their jobs/careers over government shot mandates. Folks who rely on their government funded financial aid won't be able to walk away from the issue. (And before anyone calls these folks lazy bums for relying on the government for financial support; for the many whom rely on it, that money came out of their paychecks over their years, involuntarily). Since I don't believe Covidmania will ever be going away, nor will we return to what we once thought of as normal, I'm not really sure there is much one can do other than stand your ground, fight and try like hell to avoid being jabbed. I imagine there will be several "Civil Wars" breaking out all across the globe, once such Draconian measure such as forced "vaccinations" are put in place. So, perhaps the best we can do is to put up a hell of a fight and not make it easy for them. I continue to pray for folks like yourself (and me) throughout this nightmare. Like yourself, I have taken solace in this particular web site and the many folks here.
  16. My belief is the massive device at CERN is for time travel. Time travel is possible, and I believe has been going on for a few years. As I've come to understand, traveling forward in time is easier than going back in time. A massive amount of energy is required to power a device for time travel, such a the CERN device.
  17. I keep them next to my collection of eight track tapes.
  18. Excuse my ignorance on this issue (vax exemption), but how is a simple, "No thank you." not good enough? Are you referring to an employment situation? Outside of that, I can see no reason why simply saying no won't suffice.
  19. Brief update on my earlier post: This morning, Breitbart did post a few stories on the Alec Baldwin shooting, yet the stories went from being their top of the page headliners, to the bottom of the page. None of todays accounts, on their site, mentions the Clinton connection, either.
  20. I too, check out InfoWars and enjoy the occasional Alex Jones video. Still, Alex comes across, to me, like Andy Griffith's character in "A Face in the Crowd". I've never had the sense that Alex has ever been 100% sincere in his presentation (of himself). Too much of a character, as apposed to say, David Icke. When Icke speaks, I get the sense he is who he is, no made up character or act.
  21. ...and the McDonalds Happy Meal action figure movie tie in promo...
  22. The mighty Dread Zeppelin with their cover of "Ramble On". Alright boys, let's get gone. Let's get real gone!:
