Christian Kane the actor (whom you might remember as the gun-hating muscle on the series "Leverage", or more recently on the TV series "The Librarian", and other movies) decided awhile ago he wanted a singing career (oldest girl has seen him perform locally at the Rodeo Club in San Jose, CA and has been keeping tabs on him) . . . . . BIG breath. . . . .and he sang this number with a mention of another country singing artist, Pat Green -----



The song is quite good, I liked it.

Anne - I was not familiar with Christian Kane, actor or musician! I like this song!  My son tends to like a little more country than me - I will have to have him check this out, he will probably enjoy it too! Fun that your daughter is keeping tabs!

The Ides Of March "Friends Of Feeling" (from 1971 "Common Bond") which singer Jim Peterik says "Say aren't you the fella who was in B.S.&T.??" (Blood, Sweat & Tears):


Thanks for the Ides of March tunes! - Kind of had forgotten about them....was sure that there was some tune I knew.....had to look them up and realized that "Vehicle" is the tune I know by them.  Fun to hear some others that I didn't know! (and took a listen to "Vehicle" as well!)

When Rock Was King


Jimi Jamison


A yellowed eight by ten in a ragged press kit folder
A tattered poster hanging on my bedroom wall
A snakeskin jacket in the back row of my closet
I can hear the Echoes as the music rocks the hall
A bygone day in its Grandeur and its Glory
The scent of illegal incense in the Air
Everyone i know has at least a few good stories
But if you recall the eighties - were you really there?

Hop aboard this Laser Beam - it's eighties on my Time Machine
When rock was King
Zeppelin dropped the Wrecking Ball
Loverboy would lead the call - to keep rocking
These times are taller than the tale
You can't exaggerate the power and the scale
When rock was king

Styx would rock the paradise - Survivor saw with tiger's eye
When rock was king
Motley Crue and Toto too - Boston - Kansas and Mr. Mister
We lived the Dream
Even though eighties are a Triumph come and gone
The tenors of these times are singing strong
When rock was king

When AC/DC rock the sheds
Angus would take control
Ann Wilson left the house in shreds - with Heart
Stopping rock and roll
When rock was our religion
Big dreams - big hairs - big visions

Quiet Riot felt the Noise - 38 Special were wild-eyed boys
When rock was king
Surrendering to the Cheap Trick - with Reo and Aerosmith
When got our Wings
So climb aboard the Starship - Rainbow bound
This Journey's come full Circle to the sound
When rock was king - when rock was king - when rock was king

Everything old is new again - when rock was king
Everything new is old again - when rock was king
