Hi, I knew your dad I was with Will (the native one not Asshole Will). I just wanted to say congrats on all your accomplishments. Gotta check you out at a show sometime but I live in Phoenix so I just gotta keep checking for upcoming shows.
I would woop his ass
Michael, since I have returned to Arizona, where I was born 65 years ago, I have been looking for a quiet way to contact Linda. We briefly were enrolled at Catalina high school at the same time and, although my sister was an friend of Bob Kimmel, I was never introduced to Linda. If she would like the yearbook that she has a picture of her prior to leaving for LA I would be more than happy to give it to her. Post your email on this thread if she is interested (it would be a gift, as one tucsonian to another)
Hey I'm proud to see another young Xicano brother make it through life's curves by carving out a productive, positive life for himself!!!!!!!!!!
OK, this article, and my original response, are months old, but I've come back a few times to see if there were any additional comments. Every time I look at my original reply I realize I forgot a couple of other points.
Your "humor" about original members of Lynyrd Skynyrd being "eaten by alligators" after the plane crash, is tacky and tasteless. If these were musicians you held in higher esteem, I doubt you would make such a remark. Whether you like their music or not, human beings with families and friends died in the plane crash. It's not something to poke fun at.
You make comment of how with all your musical training, you wish you could be as dumb (you dont use these words but might as well have) as the audience so you could appreciate the music. Well, the members of southern rock bands are trained, knowledgeable musicians. They didn't just wake up one morning and decide to pick up a guitar and play. I obviously can't speak to each band member's background, but I know for instance that Billy Powell, the original keyboard player for Lynyrd Skynyrd, was classically trained. This "well *I* know SO much more than anyone else, and only people who know nothing about music could enjoy this" crap is absurd elitist garbage. Open your mind a bit and don't judge people who play and enjoy music you don't happen to like. You aren't better than them, really.
This article lacks substance and depth. It also lacks proper perspective. If the author has known the subject for over ten years then there would have been no true apprehension about meeting. This piece is not informative, but more celebratory. So what are we celebrating? A bully? Because that's who Isaiah is -Not a tough guy. Mr. 400 bare knuckle brawls. Gimme a break!
Never met toothtaker, though I do know Even at the shop. I aint seen Planet Z Zach in 14 years.. glad to see he is doing well. And Slobby Robby... well... thats all I will say bout that..
Champion Cuffer is the tish.. word up
Sorry then I misconstrued. Prince does what Prince wants. :-)
$250 plus fees is gonna be a pricey show
I don't think I'm dragging his name down, that's certainly not my intention. Especially if he's an actual doctor.
I just want to be able to buy some tickets without going on an online scavenger hunt. That's all.
Dr Funkenberry is a known insider to the Prince and NPG camp. He does not post or leak rumors; only solid confirmed information. Your snarky frustrations with the purple one shouldn't drag Dr Funkenberry's name down.
Laid back? I've seen Rebirth a bunch of times, and "laid back" is very low on my list of descriptive terms....
It's Keith Streng, not Peter
That's my nephew!
Bummed I missed that Death show, but it sounds like I would have gotten in trouble anyway.
Pissed Jeans AND Death!? Awesome.
regarding Death...there's a Plush in ATX, now? and they actually splurged for bouncers?
Sounds like a lot of fun, Stephen. Is there a place we can see which musicians are playing at the SXSW Tucson showcase?
