DBT. Keeping our economy afloat.

Strong Quarter For Brown-Forman:

"Jack Daniels Maker Doing Awesome In This Economy
It's not just a joke: People are really turning to drink in this economy. Brown Forman (BF) the maker of Jack Daniels and Finlandia Vodka reported an awesome quarter"

Check out the beautiful cover artwork created by 400 Unit member Browan Lollar for Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit's upcoming, self titled release.

I want many a poster of this.

Beautiful cover art for a beautiful record.

Great news!! I will be playing at a fundraiser for the Southern Girls Rock and
Roll Camp next Friday, Dec 12 in Nashville at the 5 Spot!! And even better news,
I will be on the same bill as THose Darlins and Deer Tick!! Two bands that I
love to see and hear!

I will once again be playing with my hard rocking all-star band, Russell Caudill
on drums and Tommy MacDonald on bass. Three pieces ready to rawk!!

Come on out, make a donation to a great cause and hear some awesome music!!





Tough crowds.

Karaoke Killing - The Lede Blog -

"A 23-year-old Malaysian man was killed on Thursday night after reportedly enraging other customers who felt that he “hogged the microphone” at what Malaysia’s Star Online described as “a coffeeshop-cum-karaoke outlet” in the town of Sandakan, on the island of Borneo.

Karaoke rage is not unheard of in Asia. There have been several reported cases of singers being assaulted, shot or stabbed mid-performance, usually over how songs are sung.

Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” has reportedly generated so many outbursts of hostility that some bars in the Philippines now do not offer it on the karaoke menu anymore. In Thailand this year, a gunman shot eight people dead after tiring of their endless renditions of a John Denver tune."

Movie review: 'Cadillac Records':

"Cadillac Records' didn't have to be nearly as good as it is. The story of the record label that introduced the world to Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry and others could have leaned entirely on its music, and nobody would have minded. Instead, somebody bothered to make a real movie, and the result is a satisfying combination of great songs and strong dramatic performances."


Grammy nominations a snooze:

"So-called illegal downloads may no longer be the gravest danger faced by the imperiled recording industry: Just plain bad music may be what ultimately does the business in, and if you're looking for evidence, just scan the list of Grammy nominees announced Wednesday night in a prime-time TV special that was anything but.

And I. Love. U2
