Just saw this. There was a hurricane (Irma) that caused some problems with family members in Florida.
The other issue was my Mother's health. Lots of tests, and some not good news.
Anyway I've been in "La La Land" lately.

So sorry to hear about your mother, Elizabeth.

I think that makes sense. (Let's pretend I didn't just contribute to that thread.) Realistically speaking, I think sometimes as listeners or fans we get too cute by half. "It's good, but it would be better if only..." said the guy who is speaking for himself only, pretending the objective world is his subjective world. Maybe we ought to give the guys who have been doing this professionally for 50+ years the benefit of the doubt.

Say what you like about the what if, survivor, worst and weirdest topics but they make life so much easier when deciding where to post. Grin

By the way, that last post of mine was referring to this:
An interesting read, the "Pick 3 songs" topic. Seriously.

However...

I just thought Mike's Boys put on a great show last June (as did Brian and band in 2008). They did what they did. And what they didn't do etc.

I could've been more clear.

It was very clear to me, cap'n. Maybe I wasn't being altogether clear when I responded to it. LOL

I want to respond in kind with some kind of semiapologetic clarification, that'd just be silly.

Another heartwarmingly informative topic: "Hal Blaine, Larry King - 1990". Gives one hope for Smiley's future.

JK, it's my hope that one day the kind of inaccurate statements and outright false claims as are pushed back and corrected in the topic you mentioned will inspire the same kind of pushback and corrections to be applied to the outright nonsense and falsehoods that certain members of another place you visit have been spreading and repeating to gullible fans for years. Everything from the handlers to being controlled and drugged to who actually produced certain albums, never mind the outright personal slander on family and kids. The fact those people most responsible for spreading that crap aren't here is the kind of hope that already happened and which maybe someday you'll realize the benefits of.
