Charlie Watts Dead at 80
« on: August 24, 2021, 02:30:21 PM »
Drummer for the Rolling Stones died today.  That's one band that I've always wanted to see, even though they're not one of my favorites.  Just kind of a, "Yeah, I saw the Stones" thing.  Very much like Queen.  I liked a lot of their music, but I had a buddy who was fanatic about them.  He got tix to see them in Atlanta and asked me to go.  Damn glad I did.  Top 2 or 3 shows of all time for me.  I think the Stones, even at their age, would be off the charts.  Closest I've been is going to see "Satisfaction" the touring Stones cover band last Fall in Destin.  Anyone seen the Rolling Stones?

You can keep a wooden stake in your trunk
On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk
To get motel parking lot, balcony crunk.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

Yup. June of 2015 at Bobby Dodd on their very abbreviated zip code tour.  

Shitty stadium. Worst I’ve ever been in. But a helluva show. Probably the best concert I’ve seen in person and I’ve been to a ton. The showmanship was just crazy good. Didn’t realize Charlie was 80 but mick is 78 and Keith is 77. Time flies.
