    Thought it might be useful to have a thread on music related articles clogging the tubes. I'll start with... When Country Was King: Before Nashville, Southern California Served As Ground Zero For Honky-Tonk - http://ow.ly/5voKi

    Old Musicians Never Die. They Just Become Holograms. “But here’s the headline,” Shapiro went on. “Look at who’s gone, just in the last couple of years: Bowie, Prince, Petty. Now look who’s still going but who’s not going to be here in 10 years, probably, at least not touring: the Stones, the Who, the Eagles, Aerosmith, Billy Joel, Elton John, McCartney, Springsteen.

But the base is these guys.” https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/07/magazine/hologram-musicians.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share

    We are certainly getting old and congrats on the discs, but to be fair, most TV and movie characters still don't use the internet. Writers haven't found their footing in the world of instantaneous knowledge. 😜

    Happy Birthday Ric

    Thanks everyone. Hope you all had a good Xmas or at least a decent break. We spent a couple non-stress days eating and drinking in Sonoma. Now back home, I’d be surprised if I can keep my eyes open past 8pm. #iamold #partyon
