Pause Ponder and Play On


Eric Clapton's got nothin' on this guy. Let's see what you guys had on him...



Geddy Lee is no longer impressed by Neil Peart's drum kit.



After many long years of development, John's 12 axe guitar was a complete failure.
John is a lefty.



Dufus thinks that as far as axes go, more is better.



And our winner just couldn't get no satisfaction...



Everyone thought it would be the drugs and alcohol tht would do in Keith Richards. Turns out it was the world's longest guitar solo.

Way to go Jamie! You be hangin' with dufus this week. Congratulations. I think the first thing we have to do is find a guitar strap for that guitar. And a ladder.



If you're driving by this week be sure and click on the links and visit these guys' blogs. We've got some new players this time around and I think you'd really enjoy their stuff.

Rock on, friends.

Imagine the size of the drums in this band.

Sorry Dufus, could you type louder? My ears (and eyes) are still ringing from the solo. In all sincerity, I'm honored to be hanging with the Dufus.

I won't string you along Jamie. I think we're all in a "chord" over your caption.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

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…
