Given the forecast for the next few days, this is understandable.  However, the cold weather actually comes from Russia - so that's where to place the blame.

Also: Canada blames America for Trudeau.

And I’m going to be on the percussion with The güiro, bongo’s and a lot more cowbell.

Were you born in St. Joseph's Hospital in Orange?
It's amazing how many people I've ran into who were born there. 
 
Me and my 2 sisters were born at Alta Bates Hospital in Berkeley.  Synchronicially, my oncologist here in Cleveberg was also born at Alta Bates.  It's a real small world.  Moved south later on to CdM and it was there that I really woke up and started to live life, started to surf and figure things out and met the wife.  The wife was born in Covina.  Not West Covina, she doesn't like to admit to that.  Her bros and sis were born at Hoag in Newport though.

Her kids were born at Hoag.  When she was giving birth to one of them, I forget which one, John Wayne was also there at the same time and said something to her to be nice and comforting and she said something back like how do you think I feel and stuff it buddy as she was going through contractions.  Wayne was a long time Newport resident and it was there he injured himself body surfing down by what would later become the Wedge.  That injury killed his football career and he turned to acting as a result.  The rest of that is history.   I remember his boat which was a converted WW II mine sweeper.  Saw it a couple of times.  Big MoFo. It was docked across from Lido Isle on his side of the channel.

UCI was pretty much brand new then.  We loved to go skateboarding there.  The sidewalks were long, wide, smooth and hilly and pretty much deserted.

I dunno, I've liked the Sitar ever since Brian Jones and George Harrison brought it to their music. Sgt Pepper and TSMR had just been released and both featured the Sitar. I found it very psychedelic and soothing in the right time and the right place and still appreciate it in most instances when it shows up.

I got to see Ravi Shankar play at UC Irvine several months after his appearance at Monterrey Pop.  Knew very little before then cuz their was no instant replay media for concerts and the like back then.  Just knew what I had heard from Jones and Harrison.  Found this about that show poking around.

The Activities Office has had a block of 50 tickets set aside
for the Ravi Shankar performance at the UC, Irvine campus, Sunday,
February 4. Seats are unreserved and cost $3.00. The program will
be held in the Gymnasium at 8:30 p.m. Faculty, staff and students may
obtain tickets from the Activities Office.

February 4,1968

I remember the show well.  It was a school night being on a Sunday.  I was a sophomore being just 15.  My Dad drove me and my buddy over to the campus which was about 10 minutes away and spent the whole time in the parking lot waiting for the show to be over.  It was a long wait, almost three hours later.  He said he met some other parents in the parking lot and did their own thing.  There might have been a joint or two passed around inside. The following summer I started tripping and the Sitar and the music made even more sense. LSD was still legal because Art Linkletter's daughter hadn't decided to go flying out of the window of her apartment.  The music complemented the whole notion of being psychedelic.  The Sitar has been a part of my musical fabric ever since.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it. 

Then a week later they showed up on the Smothers Brother Comedy Hour the following weekend.

As for Robert Plant, I say he is an excellent example of an artist growing and stretching boundaries, as opposed to staying stuck in any particular genre. And he’s very talented and picks great musical partners.





Hmmmm... Kind of sounds like Joe Jackson.

That guy owned & operated a recording studio in Santa Cruz when I was at KPIG. He tried really, really hard to get us onboard his genre-bending bandwagon, but never quite succeeded.

Definitely didn’t expect to see him show up here!
