Back in a minute. Out for some Chesterfields.
Avatar 9:54pm Sean B.:

They have Chesterfield's back again I see xcept the have filters on them. All of them. That's not a real Chesterfield pack. At least here in MA.
  9:55pm rocco:

happy birthday to Phil Spector...and his Wall of Spazz........
  9:56pm Mod Mokka Matti:

Nothing says "Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year" quite like a carton of cancer sticks, wrapped with love.
  9:58pm Carmichael:

Never smoked tobacco. The old man smoked Camels, no filters. Used to pound the pack against his hand, “to pack the smokes”.
Avatar 9:58pm tak:

i use chesters yes... sometimes i smoke them too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:00pm Tome:

Light my Lucky WooooWoooo !<>! Happy Holdiays !<>!
  10:01pm Carmichael:

The car guys would open them on the opposite end, to keep the grease off the filters. True story.
Avatar 10:02pm tak:

people still do that. i do that when im doing dirty work. i just need to be careful with the glue holding the paper. best way to hand them out to coworkers
  10:06pm Carmichael:

Testimonial, there ya go.
Avatar 10:09pm tak:

correction: cant open them from the bottom, but i can turn the inside pack around. everything is more complicated than in the ol daze
  10:12pm Daybreak and the Holiday Adventures!:

Thanks for all the lovely gifts Spazzy-Claus, it was a great day! Hope you enjoyed the egg nog and cookies! Looked like the Reindeer liked the carrot!
  10:20pm Carmichael:

I like anyone named Skeeter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Tommy in Neversink:

My parents had that Skeeter Davis album and played it everyday summer of 67. I know every note of it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm Tommy in Neversink:

...Singing in the Summer Sun.. was the album

Recent story about a man discovering that Sleepy was his father... Guess things will happen when you're on the road playing up to 300 shows a year...

@Mark: Wait! So the guy thought he was “Reverend” Jim Jones’ son and then discovered he was Sleepy’s son?

Tim Wilson would appreciate it if you joined his international brotherhood of teamsters dedicated to finding Jimmy Hoffa

I suppose that what ol' Willie says could apply to me too, at least for now...

I had forgotten all about the Planet Of The Apes song!!! Thanks for another perfect show
  4:45pm Grim Jim:

D'oh! No MP3 version?
  7:49am chester:

nice Sleepy anecdotes Dave. We got to back him once mid 80's at the George Robey in London. I wish I could do it again as I think I'd be better able to keep up, and know more of the material, but it was an honour. He also taught us shotgun bass so I played my doghouse while our rhythm player played electric. We also wrote a tribute song to him "Mountain Man". My own little anecdote was that in the middle of one of his burning solos he broke the top E string. He finished the song without you even realising he was a string down. He then started an anecdote of his own while reaching in to the top pocket of his western jacket and pulling out a replacement string. All the while talking he restrung the guitar, a few turns of the peg to get in tune, then finished talking and back on the four the floor attack. Possibly the most professional thing I have ever seen! C
