  1. Very sad. One of hockey’s all time greats. Met him several times and still have an autographed pennant from him he handed me when I was a child. RIP Bobby #9
  2. Harmonies are fantastic in this Kirshner version.
  3. I’ll try to mix it up a little bringing it up, bringing it down, etc. also taking into account him switching between piano and guitar. 1.Sunrise 2. Never Gonna Fall In Love Again 3.

  4. Wow, I had heard she had a heart attack but thought she was doing well. Just saw her at the Golden Globes Tuesday night sitting at Austin Butler’s table along with her mom Priscilla. Butler starred in the recent movie about Elvis. So very sad. Hopefully Elvis is singing to her as we speak. RIP Lisa Marie.
  5. I agree James, but you know what? Todd Rundgren always said he would never accept if they put him in the hall and when he was inducted recently, he stuck to his word and didn’t show up but they still had somebody show a video collage of him and put him in regardless. Interestingly enough the video they showed ended with a clip of him saying I will never show up if the rock ‘n’ roll Hall of Fame puts me in!
  6. It’s incredible that the Guess Who still are not in the Hall of Fame. Burton has written on his Facebook and Twitter pages that it’s so upsetting that he’s asking fans not to comment on the subject anymore.
  7. Thanks Susie! I knew you would cone up with some killer recommendations!
  8. Susie: Any recommendations on her albums?
  9. In fact, I saved his response the very last time I posted this song on there on the anniversary of her passing because it meant so much to me.
  10. As far as I know he did. He sent me quite a lengthy reply, so at the time it appeared he listened. I had even said to him I know you don’t listen to songs from other people but this is a very special song to me otherwise I wouldn’t ask and he’s always been very kind to me. In fact any time I have posted this song on Twitter, when he was a member there, not only did he like it but he would always put the praying hands and the broken heart as a response. I can’t say enough about the man.
  11. Not sure if anyone here has the Disney+ app, I’m sure you could get a free trial if you don’t and it would be well worth it to watch the show I’m going to talk about, plus “Get Back” and the Elton John live at dodger Stadium concert. I subscribe to it for when my grandson Lennon visits, but I am finding I am watching it more and more myself! Tonight, I watched a documentary on the 90 year history of Abbey Road, hosted by Paul McCartney‘s daughter Mary. I thought it was phenomenal. You won’t learn anything new that you don’t already know, although I was blown away by a cellist by the name of Jacqueline du pre’ (i’m sure some of you classical fans already are aware of her, but she somehow has escaped me) that I will be raiding discogs.com tomorrow to find some of her music. interviews include Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Elton John, members of Pink Floyd, oasis, Jimmy page, Giles Martin, John Williams and more. I did love one line in there by British singer Kate Bush who said she was told they “were afraid to paint the walls of the studio for fear it would affect the sound”!!!! If you are a fan of great music, and especially the Beatles, this is something you won’t want to miss!
  12. Happy birthday Bundles and congrats on your new appointment. They must’ve read my thread where I said I would vote for you!
  13. He is the man. Always been helpful when it comes to things like that! He told me to never let anyone, a fan, a friend, a record company, tell me that a song is too long.
  14. By the way, I think the link to “out of my life” in this thread is broken so here’s something YouTube put out without my knowledge a few years ago. Lol it’s just the album cover but you can hear the song. Thanks for listening.
  15. Thanks for the bump, Susie. It’s ironic that yesterday should have been Sarah’s (Who created the lyric video) 29th birthday. Still can’t believe she’s gone. She was like a daughter to me, but then again I still can’t believe my daughter Jennifer is gone. 💔 Little known fact. When I first recorded “Daddy, I’m Alright” I was concerned about the length of it and I thought about cutting the bridge and none other than Eric Carmen told me to leave it in. I had written him asking his advice and when Eric speaks, you listen!
