    Faster Horses concert just ended here in Michigan........over 60,000 people at minimum price of $215 to enter, plus $195 for camping permit, plus $52 a day parking fee......3 day concert. Much of it in the rain and mud. But then, most of the people were so buzzed on drugs and booze, many might not have even been aware of conditions. It will take days to remove the litter left behind. This is the 4th year of the concert here at MIS. In the past 3 weeks, we might have had 1-2 days without rain......mosquitoes are in the millions per sq. foot .........!!

      Back on the early 70's after Woodstock, there was a "Celebration of Life" festival in McCrea, LA. Four of us loaded up and went. We were living in New Orleans at the time.
      I saw stuff I never dreamed of in my (at that time!) 20 years!!! 😳
      Not to mention, we couldn't get within 300 yards of the stage. The music was barely a drone above the crowd noise.
      People drunk, stoned, passed out, naked, randomly urinating and defecating wherever the need arose.
      It was on the banks of the Atchafalaya River. Four or five people drowned trying to bathe in the muddy, swirling, boiling, whirlpools south Louisiana calls a river!
      We left! Which was probably better! Four old redneck Texans with short hair and cowboy boots, we stuck out like a sore thumb! LOL!

      p.s. - food and water was nonexistent unless you packed your own lunch!

        That was a new one for me as well even though it’s been out a few years. I’ve listened to it several times already. When Kid Rock first hit the scene I liked some of his stuff but wasn’t impressed with the image. Read up on him and he’s quite a complex guy. The more of his stuff I hear the more of a fan I am.
        And he can act, too! Over the weekend I caught a rerun of that all-time classic, "Joe Dirt."

            It occurred to me today that some of these songs we pull up are going on 40-60 years old. When they came out it would have been like listening to stuff back then from around 1920. Crazy.

              "Singin' In The Rain" was written in 1929 by Nacio Herb Brown

              Singer Nick Lucas recorded Singing in the Rain in 1929 (one week after recording what would become the biggest hit of his career, Tiptoe Through the Tulips).

              So there you have it!
              What's that?
              Ninety two years ago?
              WOW!
              Whoda thunk it?

              Last week, I think, I posted a song that had been written, recorded and released less than a week earlier! (Fourth of July weekend?)

                  I posted one song that was composed in 1755 for the Independence Day version.

                    1755? You can read back THAT far? 😂

                        What do you mean? He really was in Joe Dirt. He played the dude who was after Joe's friend Brandi (though I guess it's up for debate whether or not his performance shows he can act).

                          LoL, it’s been a long time since I’ve seen that flick, totally missed it.

                          My first thought was KR playing the lead role. Typecast?

                              Reminds me of the Missouri ferry-boat character in "The Outlaw Josey Wales."

                                I’m a descendent of the elder Thomas Fitch. I have a cousin who’s researched this and what he found out was that the “feather in his cap” lyric was in in reference to the men serving under the younger Thomas Fitch. He had them place a feather in their cap to identify them as his men.


                                Here’s to son’s of Fitches!
