  1. http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/13/living/brian-wilson-creativity/index.html?hpt=hp_c2 This is a great article from CNN about Beach Boys Brian Wilson.
  2. Diane...I feel your pain. We have bought our third house in 10 years this summer. Also, we had to move to an apt for 3 months just before this last house. We have been married 37 yrs and three daughters. They are obviously gone but the junk is not. I made countless trips to Goodwill in the past 1.5 years..thank goodness! I have said that we are going to be fertile ground for the next episode of Hoarders! I do not know what we would have done without throwing out or donating to charity. We still have our basement family room and bedroom with too much stuff. I have been making lots of shelves for the garage and many boxes have gone onto them...Its great! The shelves are up high and the boxes are stacked on them so it works like a charm. As far as throwing things out.....I now throw books much easier since getting a Nook and going to library. Really the only true things to keep are photos and personal momentos connected to people. Everything else can be replaced or done without. I am painting our kitchen today and once it is done I dont have to revisit that for years... You will be fine. Just keep at it and it will improve.
  3. Thanks so much to all my ec.com friends for their birthday wishes. Happy Birthday to LC and Debbie and Kirk. Dar...I guess you got me on that post!!! Going to a nice restaurant for dinner and it should be fun!
  4. http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/09/03/near.death.decisions/index.html?hpt=hp_c2 This is an incredible article about 9/11 and how several people had things gone on like in the past would not have been here today. But because of some unexplained sequence of events....they did survive. The woman who took a cigarette break, the flight attendant who reversed two numbers while trying to schedule her workday And a guy who was late to work.... What is also neat is the way things have worked out differently for them since 9/11. Just a great story!!!
  5. http://www.npr.org/player/v2/mediaPlayer...amp;m=137470454 Here is an article and audio tape of Rave On a tribute album by 19 different artists (including Paul McCartney) with their versions of Buddy's songs!!! Great stuff! Enjoy, Phil
  6. Many Wishes for a Fantasic Birthday Eric and it enjoy it will your family and friends!! Phil
  7. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/celebrit...cy-Shevell.html Take a look at Sir Paul's fiancee Nancy....Is it just me or does she look like Yoko Ono???? We wish Sir Paul and Nancy all the best! Phil
  8. Martin Wilbury: I assume you are Marty Murphy a band member of Sounds of Silence. Thanks so much for your memories of your band and the dance that was in the photo. It would have been a real treat to have heard you guys. We also were blessed in our high school and city to have some very good bands that were probably somewhat similar to your band. Those bands were so good back in the day and played cover songs so well. But then back then in the sixties we had so many great great cover songs of the day to play!!! Thanks again Marty, Phil
  9. Happy Birthday Ira!!! I hope it has been a really good one! Phil
  10. http://www.npr.org/blogs/allsongs/2011/0...ly?ps=mh_frhdl3 Here is information about a new release on June 28 of a 19 song CD that has many different artist doing a Buddy Holly song. Here is a sample with Patti Smith doing her version of "Words of Love".....just outstanding!! Phil
  11. Bernie, Thanks so much! That is really cool! 1967 was the year I graduated from high school...same year as Eric. Its too bad the Sounds of Silence didn't play at our school! You can tell it is a semi formal dance with all of the guys wearing suits and the girls and their corsages!!! Black and white photo....it really brings back memories! Phil
  12. http://www.spinner.com/2011/02/11/buffalo-springfield-reunion/ They are said to have had more influence on the folk rock movement than any band except the Eagles. They will be touring this fall for the first time in 43 years. Neil Young, Stephen Stills and Richie Furay the surviving members are doing 4 more warmup concerts in California in the next few days before embarking on a tour. Not sure when or what sites but it has got to be a good one!! Phil
  13. Larry, I am glad you liked it. Yes..that is the Michael McDonald..the blue eyed soul guy way back in his early days. I only saw the Guild once and it was October 1969 at my college's homecoming dance. They did this medley of Beach Boy songs and just blew me away!!! Try to visit the "Come Around and See Me" thread with the Wheezetones Beatles medley. They are from Lincoln, Nebraska. The medley is 6 Beatle songs from 1964 and these sixty something rockers do a great job of energy, harmonizing and replicating these early Beatle classics!! They play a gig about every 2 months at Duggan's Pub in Lincoln. On June 10 they do one from 6:30 - 8:30. We're hoping to make it on this Baby Boomer friendly time!!! Wish you could make it too!! you would love it! Best of luck. Phil
  14. Try this: http://www.stlmusicyesterdays.com/Guild.htm There that should get the job done. Hey can you do "I Can Hear Music" on this medley as one of your shower numbers? Your shower songs are so awesome....problem is you might need a wall of sound and several more harmonizing singers....Yes I am glad you like the medley...You are right it is fantastice!!! Phil
  15. http://www.stlmusicyesterdays.com/Guild.htpm Just scroll about 3/4 of the way down this page and click on Beach Boys medley. This audio clip is of a group called The Guild They were from St. Louis, Mo and this medley absolutely kicks ass!! Michael McDonald a very noted musician was in the band and they play these classic Beach Boys songs so well!!! Enjoy!! Phil
