      RIP Stuart Adamson (and TOTP):

      (CLASSIC UK powerpop FTW — thanks, Steve!)

      • We were all from the same little area in Scotland, all into the same types of music. I was at their second ever gig. Stuart was a great guy, my neighbour’s cousin, but running a pub turned out to be exactly the wrong job for his post-star life. Richard Jobson dated my best mate’s big sister for a while, was a total tosspot to her, so my mate beat him up. Those were the days.

  • Don Henry Ford Jr.

    Springsteen produced what for me was album of the year:

    • Seems my procrastination knows some bounds after all…, got the “Wrecking Ball” CD from Amazon yesterday. Been listening to it since then…, while I ponder on a proper response to your “No Free Ride” piece. I get it partner…, but don’t get some of the comments. Since it is the weekend and I don’t have to go to the “job”…, I have “work” to do on The Ranch. Maybe I can “work” out a few frustrations before I let loose. It may take a while.

      And…, right on partner…, write on.

    Damn right — Springsteen was essential this year. Btw, Don, embed coding disappears with this comment plug-in unless you have editor designation — just post the direct URL and myself or someone else will embed for ya. Am eager to see which track you picked.

    This is one of my favourite live performances from 2012 that fortunately enough was captured for posterity, bar none (RIP Trayvon):

    Not sure what the theme is this weekend (or maybe there isn’t one), but I will stick with The Boss vibe. Here he is doing one of the most underappreciated songs he penned off Tunnel of Love:

    Tougher Than The Rest (Note how some of the glances between Bruce and Patti Scialfa are borderline erotic….Yeow!)

    Fav Mac track, reworked for a new generation:

    The epitome of ‘EPIC’ (RIP Bon Scott):

    Bob Seger: “Still the Same

    It was always a great song to cry about lost love(s) to…!

    Unlike Springsteen,Seger didn’t move gracefully on stage, but he did have a killer smile.
