Cilla Black, RIP

Cilla Black, RIP

There's no way back to the world you knew. The Smiths covered Cilla's Work Is A Four-letter Word, just as they covered Twinkle's Golden Lights (Twinkle also died this year), just as I covered Lynn Anderson's Rose Garden, and of course, Lynn slipped away last week.
Never stationary throughout the 1960s, Cilla Black made some great records - The Right One Is Left, Suffer Now I Must, It's For You, I've Been Wrong Before, What Good Am I?

I'm very grateful for the songs, and it never occurred to me that such people could die.

Lynn Anderson comments on Morrissey

I was very excited that he gave the song a "Classic" reading ... as if he was very familiar with my record!

What a very cool compliment! His band did a GREAT JOB! They Rocked The Opry!

Yeah!!! 8)

Lynn Anderson, RIP

A few weeks ago we were proud to play our version of 'Rose garden' on stage in Nashville in honor of the great Lynn Anderson.

Tonight, we hear that Lynn has gone. We were just a hand's breadth away.

Impossible, impossible, impossible.

no words amongst the sadness ...

Cecil the Lion


31 July 2015

Cecil the Lion

Cecil Illustration By Steven Pottle


Would the United Nations have the nerve to bring Walter Palmer to justice for his murder of Cecil the Lion? The answer, as we all know, is ... No, because it would upset the established elite (see brave Harry Battenberg below, engaging in his favorite pastime).

Harry


Walter Palmer does not appear in court in Zimbabwe and instead decides to do what the newspapers eloquently term "a runner". Yet an order is not issued for his arrest! So, from this we learn that, should we ever be summoned to court, we need only run off and the courts won't mind in the least! End of case! Try it! You'll get away with it! Walter Palmer has! Free to kill again! Evidently the law and justice rarely combine.

Update: More than 225,000 people have signed a petition to the White House to extradite Walter Palmer to face justice in Zimbabwe.
