The Voice

This week's 60s group takes us back to 1964 and focusses more on an individual rather than a band. The Animals was fronted by Eric Burdon and made quite an impression on North America as part of the British invasion. A piece of musical trivia: bassist Chas Chandler left the group two years later to manage Jimi Hendrix. House of the Rising Sun was a huge hit and continues to be a blues and rock classic, largely due to the voice behind the song...



By 1970, Eric Burdon had moved on to front War and the superb blues/rock vocalist released Spill the Wine...





At 67, Burdon continues to perform, his fabulous voice continues to be his trademark. His latest album, Soul Of A Man, was released in 2006

ettarose: Memories, indeed. The first clp's from a 60s film on the British invasion that I recall seeing in a movie theatre, I think on a double-bill with "Summer Holiday" starring Cliff Rischard!

A#1: No time is not on his side (wrong group). And thanks for the thumbs up.

A#2: Facebok won't run the feed un til there's 20 followers/fans on the NetworkedBlogs page. I've been remiss in updating manually but please click through and start the stampede!

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
