There was a wealthy merchant, in London he did dwell He had a Beautiful daughter, the truth to you we'll tell Oh the truth to you we'll tell She had sweethearts a plenty, and men of high degree But none but Jack the sailor, her true love ever be Oh her true love ever be Jackie's gone a sailing, with trouble on his mind He's left his native country and his darling girl behind Oh his darling girl behind She went down to a tailor shop and dressed in man's array She climbed on board a vessel to convey herself away Oh convey herself away Before you get on board sir, your name we'd like to know She smiled on her countenance, they called me Jack-A-Roe Oh they called me Jack-A-Roe I see your waist is slender, your fingers they are small Your cheeks too red and rosy to face the cannonball Oh to face the cannonball I know my waist's to slender, my fingers they are small but it would not make me tremble to see ten thousand fall Oh to see ten thousand fall The war soon being over she went and looked around among the dead and wounded her darling boy she found Oh her darling boy she found She picked him up on in her arms and carried him to the town she sent for a physician to quickly heal his wounds Oh to quickly heal his wounds This couple they got married so well they did agree This couple they got married so why not you and me? Oh why not you and me? Oh why not you and me?

Just a Quickie... "Dark Hollow" Single by Bill Browning A-side "Borned with the Blues Released 1958 Genre Folk Songwriter(s) Bill Browning "Dark Hollow" is a folk song first recorded by folk singer-songwriter Bill Browning in 1958. It is included as the B-side of his single "Borned with the Blues". Though usually credited to Browning, the song has some lyrical similarities to the traditional "East Virginia Blues/East Virginia" and "Come All You Fair and Tender Ladies", likely Browning's inspiration. "Dark Hollow" is considered to be the most popular of Browning's short career, but it did not reach the peak of its popularity until it was recorded by Grateful Dead in the early 1970s

A Blast from the past for all the California arson victims.. We all hope and pray for your sanity.. Ventura Highway The song "Ventura Highway" went on to become a #8 single for "America", and a song that has endured in people's hearts and mings long past its publication, unlike many other songs that are "here today, gone tomorrow". "Ventura Highway" won many fans, including the pro-wrestler-turned-politician, Jesse Ventura: "We went and played at Governor Jesse Ventura's inaugural out in Minneapolis. He asked us to — his wife is a horse lady, and she'd always loved 'A Horse With No Name,' and he had adopted this name, 'Ventura'. So when he put together his cast of characters for his big inaugural celebration, he wanted us to come and play two songs, which we did." The vocalist Dewey Bunnell has said that the lyric "alligator lizards in the air" in the song is a reference to the shapes of clouds in the sky. Cheers, Folks!!! Stay tuned for some holiday treats...

Happy B Day, Phil!! Phil Lesh was an innovator in the new role that the electric bass developed during the mid-1960s. Contemporaries such as Casady, Bruce, James Jamerson and Paul McCartney adopted a more melodic, contrapuntal approach to the instrument; before this, bass players in rock had generally played a conventional timekeeping role within the beat of the song, and within (or underpinning) the song's harmonic or chord structure. While not abandoning these aspects, Lesh took his own improvised excursions during a song or instrumental. This was a characteristic aspect of the so-called San Francisco Sound in the new rock music. In many Dead jams, Lesh's bass is, in essence, as much a lead instrument as Garcia's guitar. Lesh was not a prolific composer or singer with the Grateful Dead, although some of the songs he did contribute—"New Potato Caboose", "Box of Rain", "Unbroken Chain", and "Pride of Cucamonga"—are among the best-known in the band's repertoire. Lesh's high tenor voice contributed to the Grateful Dead's three-part harmony sections in their group vocals in the early days of the band, until he largely relinquished singing high parts to Donna Godchaux (and thence Brent Mydland and Vince Welnick) in 1976 due to vocal cord damage from improper singing technique. In 1985, he resumed singing lead vocals on select songs as a baritone. Throughout the Grateful Dead's career, his interest in avant-garde music remained a crucial influence on the group.

Raymond Daniel "Ray" Manzarek, Jr. (né Manczarek; February 12, 1939 – May 20, 2013) was an American musician, singer, producer, film director, and author, best known as a member of The Doors from 1965 to 1973, which he co-founded with singer and lyricist Jim Morrison. Manzarek was notable for performing on a keyboard bass during many live shows and some recordings, taking on a role usually filled by a bass guitar player. He recorded on every track of all eight Doors studio albums, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. He was a co-founding member of Nite City from 1977 to 1978, and of Manzarek–Krieger from 2001 until his death in 2013.

Cheers for Sydney!!Syd was a f... ounding member of Pink Floyd, You must have heard of them. Lots of... read more great music from them.Through late 1967 and early 1968, Barrett's behaviour became increasingly erratic and unpredictable, partly as a consequence of his reported heavy use of psychedelic drugs, most prominently LSD.[8] There is also much speculation that he suffered from schizophrenia. Once described as joyful, friendly, and extroverted, he became increasingly depressed and socially withdrawn, and experienced hallucinations, disorganized speech, memory lapses, intense mood swings, and periods of catatonia.[4] Although the changes began gradually, he went missing for a long weekend and, according to several friends including Rick Wright, came back "a completely different person."[4] One of the striking features of his change was the development of a blank, empty, dead-eyed stare. He was unable to recognize old friends that he had known for years, and often did not know where he was. At one point, while on a tour of the city of Los Angeles, Barrett is said to have exclaimed, "Gee, it sure is nice to be in Las Vegas!"[4] Many reports described him on stage, strumming one chord through the entire concert, or not playing at all.[70] At a show at The Fillmore in San Francisco, during a performance of "Interstellar Overdrive", Barrett slowly detuned his guitar. The audience seemed to enjoy such antics, unaware of the rest of the band's consternation. Interviewed on Pat Boone's show during this tour, Syd's reply to Boone's questions was a "blank and totally mute stare," according to Nick Mason, "Syd wasn't into moving his lips that day." Barrett exhibited similar behaviour during the band's first appearance on Dick Clark's popular TV show American Bandstand.[71] Although surviving footage of this appearance shows Barrett miming his parts of the song competently,[72] during a group interview afterwards, when asked two questions by Clark, Barrett's answers were terse, almost to the point of rudeness (though, Clark noted, they had been flying non-stop from London to Los Angeles). During this time, Barrett would often forget to bring his guitar to sessions, damage equipment and occasionally was unable to hold his pick.[73] Before a performance in late 1967, Barrett reportedly crushed Mandrax tranquilliser tablets and an entire tube of Brylcreem into his hair, which subsequently melted down his face under the heat of the stage lighting,[74] making him look like "a guttered candle".[75] Nick Mason later disputed the Mandrax portion of this story, stating that "Syd would never waste good mandies".

Happy Birthday John Paul Jones )LED ZEPPELIN ) During his time as a session player, Jones often crossed paths with guitarist Jimmy Page,[18] a fellow session veteran. In June 1966, Page joined The Yardbirds, and in 1967 Jones contributed to that band's Little Games album. The following winter, during the sessions for Donovan's The Hurdy Gurdy Man, Jones expressed to Page a desire to be part of any projects the guitarist might be planning.[19] Later that year, The Yardbirds disbanded, leaving Page and bassist Chris Dreja to complete previously booked Yardbirds dates in Scandinavia. Before a new band could be assembled, Dreja left to take up photography. Jones, at the suggestion of his wife,[16] asked Page about the vacant position, and the guitarist eagerly invited Jones to collaborate. Page later explained: I was working at the sessions for Donovan's Hurdy Gurdy Man, and John Paul Jones was looking after the musical arrangements. During a break, he asked me if I could use a bass player in the new group I was forming. He had a proper music training, and he had quite brilliant ideas. I jumped at the chance of getting him.[20] Vocalist Robert Plant and drummer John Bonham joined the two to form a quartet. Initially dubbed the "New Yardbirds" for the Scandinavian dates, the band soon became known as Led Zeppelin. Contribution to the band[edit] Derivative of Jones's triquetra sigil used in the untitled album commonly known as Led Zeppelin IV Jones was responsible for the classic bass lines of the group, notably those in "Ramble On" and "The Lemon Song" (Led Zeppelin II), and shifting time signatures, such as those in "Black Dog" (Led Zeppelin IV). As half of Led Zeppelin's rhythm section with drummer John Bonham, Jones shared an appreciation for funk and soul rhythmic grooves which strengthened and enhanced their musical affinity.[21] In an interview he gave to Global Bass magazine, Jones remarked on this common musical interest: Yeah, we were both huge Motown and Stax fans and general soul music fans, James Brown fan. Which is one of the reasons why I've always said that Zeppelin was one of the few bands to "swing". We actually had a groove in those days. People used to come to our shows and dance, which was great. To see all the women dancing, it was really brilliant. You didn't necessarily see that at a Black Sabbath show or whatever: So we were different in that way. We were a groovy band. We used all our black pop music influences as a key to the rock that went over the top.[22] After retiring his Fender Jazz Bass (which he had been using since his days with The Shadows in the early 1960s) from touring in 1975, Jones switched to using custom-designed Alembic basses[23] while touring. However, he still preferred to use the Jazz Bass in the studio and in an interview for Elixir Strings, he mentioned that he still has the bass to this day.[24] Jones' keyboard skills added an eclectic dimension that realised Led Zeppelin as more than just a hard rock band. Keyboard highlights include the delicate "The Rain Song" (Houses of the Holy) played on a Mellotron; the funky "Trampled Under Foot", played on a Clavinet (Physical Graffiti); and the eastern scales of "Kashmir", also played on a Mellotron (also on Physical Graffiti). In live performances, Jones' keyboard showpiece was "No Quarter", often lasting for up to half-an-hour and sometimes including snatches of "Amazing Grace", Joaquín Rodrigo's "Concierto de Aranjuez", which had inspired Miles Davis' Sketches of Spain, and variations of classical pieces by composers such as Rachmaninoff. Jones' diverse contributions to the group extended to the use of other instruments, including an unusual triple-necked acoustic instrument consisting of a six and a twelve string guitar, and a mandolin. Jones often used bass pedals to supplement the band's sound while he was playing keyboards and mandolin. On the band's 1977 tour of the United States, Jones would sing lead vocals on "The Battle of Evermore," filling in for Sandy Denny, who had sung on the studio version. Profile[edit] While all members of Led Zeppelin had a reputation for off-stage excess (a label that has been claimed was exaggerated),[25] Jones was widely seen as the most quiet and reserved member of the group.[26][27] For his part, Jones has claimed that he had just as much fun on the road as his bandmates but was more discreet about it,[10] stating "I did more drugs than I care to remember. I just did it quietly."[16] Benoit Gautier, an employee of Atlantic Records in France, echoed this impression, stating that "The wisest guy in Led Zeppelin was John Paul Jones. Why? He never got caught in an embarrassing situation."[10] In an interview, Jones explained that fame with Led Zeppelin was not something that he ever became preoccupied with: Not really; I'd done it all before ... I would like to think that I wasn't too stupid either. I tried to stay out of the drift of the rock star's path, mainly because I needed my sanity and freedom on the road. So generally, I used to check out of the hotel, and then get out on the street. I'd go walking ... I'm not as recognisable as Plant and Page. Plus, I used to change my appearance all the time just to make sure I wasn't as recognisable ... Generally, I'm pretty quickly into the shadows ... I once read the Beatles did a whole tour of America and never left their hotel rooms. And I thought, "I can't see the point of travelling around the world and not seeing anything."[16] However, following exhausting tours and extended periods of time away from his family, by late 1973 Jones was beginning to show signs of disillusionment. He considered quitting Led Zeppelin to spend more time with his family, and possibly to take up the position of choirmaster of Winchester Cathedral, but was talked into returning by the band's manager, Peter Grant.[28] Jones later explained his reservations: I didn't want to harm the group, but I didn't want my family to fall apart either. We toured a huge amount in those early days. We were all very tired and under pressure and it just came to a head. When I first joined the band, I didn't think it would go on for that long, two or three years perhaps, and then I'd carry on with my career as a musician and doing movie music.[8]
