Now he and Alvin Lee can laugh their asses off about how frigging stoned they were recording "Ssssh"!

Nothing like a creative bent applied to recording.   Makes it like Andy made it-Great!

I hear Peggy Thatchamaplanner also died today.

A great lady, reviled by the left, revered by the right. She wasn't ever known for appeasing her enemies by compromise. RIP Iron Lady Thatcher.

Didn't really mean to post twice in a row, but bump827 got off a good Emily Litella joke over in the "Joe's Favorite Wine?" thread, and it put me in mind of Gilda Radner. I know it's a little early, since the anniversary of her death isn't until next month (May 20), but who knows if I'll be around by May 20...   wink

A slightly simplified statement there - it was the right, rather than the left that got her removed from power.

I think it would be more accurate to say that it was the squishes (i.e., the Left) of the Tory party that wanted her out...

Jonathan was one of my all-time favorites.  Surprised he didn't collapse long ago from all the power and energy he put in his performances!

Just saw this this morning: American chess Grandmaster Robert Byrne died on Friday at age 84. Here's a story from the U.S. Chess Federation website:  http://www.uschess.org/content/view/12164/707

I admired him as a player, but even more so as a writer. His syndicated chess column was the very model of what chess writing should be...

RIP Jonathon Winters. He made me laugh so many times growing up, on so many different shows. A very respected comedian among his peers.

You know, I hear about celebs and famous people passing almost on a daily basis and it's sad, but news of Jonathons passing stopped me in my tracks. He was a truly funny guy, just "off the wall" style of humor unlike his peers. When he joined the cast of Mork & Mindy it was a match made in comedy heaven. Jonathon and Ernie Kovacs were my Dad's and my favorites.
