Tony Allen currently touring over here with The Good, The Bad and the Queen. Latest album from them seems to be reflecting on the B word. Mr Albarn's influence I would imagine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/7/18 11:08am Jeff Golick:

Tony's recent Art Blakey tribute album is wonderful.

The sound of this band...it's an indomitable thing, eternal.

I never paid attention to zodiac signs until I started dating in college.

I was into astrology when I was a teenager, I met someone who did my chart and found out my moon is in Scorpio which seemed to make sense at the time

Scorpions on the Moon was the name of my first band in high school.

Not to appear vain, but when I learned as a young child in the early 70s that I was an Aquarius, I thought that song was about me.

My plan is working, Stanley!

Kalakuta was Fela's compound, that or the Shrine?
After James Brown he was the most influencial musician. Arguably.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/7/18 11:29am northguineahills:

I'm usually an empiricist, but the Zen in me knows that nothing is verifiable one way or another. It's all one of the same at some level. To paraphrase Socrates, "only a fool thinks they know everything". Like Jon Snow, I know nothing....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/7/18 11:33am Doug Schulkind:

Kalakuta was Fela's compound. The Shrine was his nightclub. At one point, Fela declared to government officials that he was seceding from the nation and declared his compound Kalakuta Republic. That's when the army stormed home, arresting Fela. In the scrum, they threw Fela's mother down the stairs. She later died from her injuries.

Ah..much better with the ear duds plugged in-I was listening via laptop speaker before
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/7/18 11:34am Doug Schulkind:

Her death is recounted in Fela's album Coffin For Head of State, in which he takes the coffin with his dead mother and brings it to the president's residence.

I did not know that about Fela's mother!

Huh, Mr. Bigmouth isn't a precursor to a Smith's tune.

@Doug: I thought Fela's mother was defenestrated....

Laying the pathos on THICK!

I hear the Pathos is going to be shut down on weekends.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/7/18 11:43am Doug Schulkind:

Speaking of thick, Uncle Michael is next here on the Drummer Stream! (Always purchase Hinky Dinky Time crunchy, never Hinky Dinky Time smooth.)

It is natural for oil to form at the top when you first open Hinky Dinky Time. Just give it a quick stir with a dull knife.

Pathos sounds like the name of a Greek restaurant where your girlfriend dumps you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/7/18 11:44am Brian in UK:

Remind me of a nightclub locally years ago. It was called Shades but the first S had fallen off.

Arthur's Sweet SoulMusic album is flawless..he led quite a life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/7/18 11:45am Doug Schulkind:

The one simply rotten feature of my new radio show/job choreography is that now I never get to listen to Hinky Dinky Time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/7/18 11:46am Doug Schulkind:

I will be off for a few Fridays over the holiday break. So I will overdose on my Hinky then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/7/18 11:49am northguineahills:

OD on hinky, sounds kinky....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/7/18 11:51am Rich in Washington:

We'll keep a slice of Hinky warm for you in the oven, Doug!

I'll start salivating now, Rich. Ooops, already started!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/7/18 11:52am Brian in UK:

Doug, another stunningly average show. Do not let standards rise.

Charles Bradley was scheduled to be touring over about eighteen months ago but cancelled, was hoping to see him but he must have been too poorly.

I think Charles might have actually heard The Way We Were once.
