Re: “Spanish Gold's 'Day Drinkin' [Fresh Vid]

PS:

When I was a kid I remember watching 'Bozo the Clown' shows on tv...

I thought I was totally sick of Nashville but I think I want to do some co-songwriting again...

thanks for the inspiration, this 10th day of July 2014.

How about we call the clown 'Bozo' Nashville Scene ??? : )

Re: “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame President Pens Letter of Support to Ben Folds

PS: I never really got into Elvis Presley's music. Elvis was 19 years older than me and as a 15 year old teenager having discovered Neil Young's music in November of 1969, well, I have to be honest and say Neil Young had so much more character and made Elvis Presley look even worse to me. Elvis was a womanizing human pig. I had no respect for Elvis Presley as a teenager and I still don't have that much respect for him today. Using Elvis Presley's name as a reason to preserve some old space he might have used just makes me want to see that space demolished all the more. If that old building gets demolished I think I want to be there for the party. I know something greater can become of that space.

Re: “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame President Pens Letter of Support to Ben Folds

WTF??? The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame & Museum...

(1) where I was on the day it opened in September of 1995

(2) was one of the first persons admitted into the building because I had purchased a membership to the R&RHofF&M when I heard there would be a R&RHof F&M built in my home state and after the building was built had the opportunity to purchase a tickets for the opening and concert celebrating the opening

(3) when the museum was first opened to the public only a few people were let in...since I was one of the very first people to be able to walk around the newly built R&RHofF&M I just so happened to walk up behind James Brown and his entourage and they stopped at the display case where James Brown memorabilia was in that display case. I was able to observe James Brown look at the display case with his things in it in in his honor. No one else in the world, except those in James Brown entourage, can say they witnessed what I did that day. I was very patient and once Mr. Brown and his entourage were all done looking at the display case and James Brown turned towards me, I said hello to him and asked him if I could shake his hand. He obliged my request and shook my hand. James Brown was wearing black leather gloves when I shook his hand. Later that day I got to see James Brown performing for the first time during what turned out to be a 7 + 1/2 hour long concert celebrating the opening of the R&RHofF&M. I have to say James Brown put on quite an amazing show.

My point is that rock & roll had been around for decades and there was even a R&RHofF&M web site where you could pay to have a membership to the R&RHofF&M before there was even a building to house the R&RHofF&M memorabilia. I also know that the R&RHofF&M struggled for a very, very, very long time with $ woes...not sure of the present $ status of the R&RHofF&M.

I understand that there are a lot of people that want to see the past preserved but I don't see the people bitching about it paying for that past to be preserved. The people that built the legacy have the right to do what they want with the building where that legacy was made. I would have to say that since the building where Studio A is housed has been for sale for 24 years, it is obvious that not that many people took a vested interest in it. I say that all the people bitching about the sale of the building should put their bank accounts where their mouths are and buy the building and preserve the studio and quit bitching about the building finally being sold. If the bitchers don't want to risk their own bank accounts then I think they should shut the fuck up and let the present owners sell the building to the present buyer and let it be. I'm all for the present owners getting the most out of their investment from the past and the builder making something new out of the space.

Ben Folds has been too cheap to compensate the present owners for what they want so I say the heck with Ben Folds. As far as the present R&RHofF&M guy supporting Ben Folds, I say to him put your bank account where your mouth is too. Let's see what happens with that here in Music City, USA.

Pompous people make me sick.

Again. I say good luck an to the present owners and to the new buyer. I am looking forward to checking out what you do new with that plot of land.

Re: “Not in Your Back Yard: Tell Me How You Really Feel About This Piece on 'Nashville Living Rooms Turning Into Music Venues'

@*-* --"My only concern is that some kind of critical mass occur and then a city ordinance is passed preventing house shows, kind of like how home studios for profit are illegal."

This is certainly a valid point, however, IF that did happen, I assume it would be as difficult to enforce as the Metro ordinance against "home studios". I think house shows will be around as long as people use common-sense: just check with the neighbors first. I've operated a for-profit home studio for 3 years, in various neighborhoods (all residential), but I've always talked to my neighbors/potential neighbors well in advance to make sure they were ok with it - I've had to make some adjustments to my desired working methods/conditions, but nothing unreasonable, and to date I've never had a single issue with anybody. Most people are actually very supportive.

Although, to play devil's advocate, house shows have much more of a "party" atmosphere than a recording studio, so I can see how people might not be so eager to invite that element into their neighborhoods.

Like ships passing in the night, the tiger looked on as Tigger was transported out of the zoo, never to be seen again; the tiger knowing he should have said hello.
