I always wondered how deep Barry White’s voice was when he had a cold.
I thought about Joey Chestnut when I read this Washington Post Instragram post. I met him in 2019 when he was touring Hooters promoting their all-you-can eat wings. He ate 230 wing pieces in an hour which was a personal record for him.
He was very friendly and unpretentious. He even stayed around after the wing-eating was over.
They only support presidential power when a Republican is president.
Elmore James was one of the all-time great blues musicians. He was an incredible guitarist.
Here’s the entry on him at Find a Grave. It has this incredible sentence:
The Elmore James headstone was paid for by Phil Walden of Capricorn Records in 1991 who agreed to do so while under the effects of anesthesia administered by his dentist, who was also the person who sculpted the bronze statue of James that adorns the headstone.
“Don’t Let Me Down” by the Beatles with Billy Preston was the B-side of the 1969 “Get Back” single. It would certainly make my Beatles top 10 song list. Near the end of their career, the Beatles circled back to their rock and roll roots. It’s deceptively simple; I don’t think they could have done something so basic without all they went through. Sometimes, less is more.
Made much worse by DeSantis
“Knock on Wood” is a great 1966 record by Eddie Floyd. 1960s R&B didn’t get any better than this. Boxer Joe Frazier was one of the people who covered it!
