|Apr-19-12|| ||talisman: <Jim> yes...it was Robbie talking in some documentary seen some time ago.|
|Apr-19-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Robbie could talk some real BS. In an interview about the Last Waltz, he said they came back more than an hour after they'd finished, and was surprised to see all the fans were still there! So they did one more song.|
He neglected to mention that during that hour plus, a makeshift band had been playing, a band including Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Dr. John, Ringo Starr, Ronnie Wood, Paul Butterfield, etc.
|Apr-20-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: R.I.P. Levon.
He was a great talent and his marching drum beat helped Bob Dylan on the '74 tour.
He was an actor in "The Right Stuff."
I'll always remain partial to people who say things like,"New York's an adult dose."

|Apr-20-12|| ||A.G. Argent: I wonder if Levon reconciled with Robbie Robertson at all towards his end. Would have to truly hope so.|
|Apr-20-12|| ||Jim Bartle: How bad really were relations between Helm and Robertson? |
In his book "This Wheel's on Fire" (excellent) he writes that he was the only one who wanted to break up the Band, and that he took far too many songwriting credits than he deserved. He also wrote that Robertson and Scorsese wanted to drop Muddy Waters from the Last Waltz for time reasons, but Helm fought to keep him on the program. (He said the dress rehearsal for the Last Waltz was far superior to the show itself, but nobody filmed it.)
Whatever criticism I may have of Robertson, what a great, great guitar player. Brilliant.
Some people point to "Further on Up the Road" to say, "Look how much better Clapton is than Robbie," when they each do an opening solo. But they don't notice that Robertson played a solo only because Clapton's guitar strap broke and Robbie had to step in at a second's notice, no preparation.

|Apr-20-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Helm definitely thought the other members of the Band should be paid royalties for a lot of the songs, not just Robertson, especially on the first two albums. He also resented this implication that while he and the others were very talented musicians and singers (exception of Garth Hudson, who didn't sing), they needed Robertson to give them the songs.|

|Apr-20-12|| ||waustad: BTW, if you haven't listened, the kid from Texas is good.|
|Apr-20-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: "Up On Cripple Creek" is a great American song in so many ways. "Jew's Harp" or "Juice Harp" was the cowbell of it's day. More Juice Harp.
And "the way she dunks her donut in my tea", I love the romance of that.|
|Apr-20-12|| ||HeMateMe: <Harry> I bet u say that to ALL of the kibitzers, sweetie.|
BTW, the London Olympic committee has to do a better job of keeping up to date with popular culture. According to Sports Illustrated, they recdently contacted the manager of the rock group The Who. They wanted to know if Who drummer <Keith Moon> would be available to play in the closing ceremonies. The committee had to be informed that Moonie died in 1978. (Alcohol poisoning, I think.)
|Apr-20-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Santa Esmeralda, "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood":

White to move.
Another hopeless looking position, can White save himself from this?
(Take as much time as you think that you might need.)

|Apr-21-12|| ||DrNyet: Saw the movie "The Lucky One" tonight and was surprised to see in it a kid who was into chess enough to have a couple of wooden sets and was studying Averbach's "Chess Endings: Essential Knowledge". Although chess wasn't a central part of the movie, there were three or four close ups of the book's cover and it played a role in the denouement.|
|Apr-21-12|| ||optimal play: <harrylime><'Dear Prudence' .. is ofcourse Lennon all the way. It is a little clue that John is singing the song ! lol lol> Harry, can you please explain this to your mate <MarkFinan> who's mis-understanding of the Beatles appears so skewed he probably thinks "Revolution" was written by Martha (Paul's English sheepdog).|
|Apr-21-12|| ||HeMateMe: I thought "Revolution" was writtn by Klaus Voorman and Charles Manson? Did the Beatles steal that one?|
|Apr-21-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: The Darkness, "I Believe in a Thing Called Love":
|Apr-21-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Where I live we play chess at downtown outdoor tables starting around this time. The usual guys show up each year, young and old from different backgrounds.
I feel about it how Roger Hornsby described his winters:
"People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."|
|Apr-21-12|| ||Joshka: <Wayne Proudlove> Yes thanks for reminding me of that quote! Read it in a book he wrote! Which leads to me ponder this question, how many baseball players play chess that you are aware of? Living in Cleveland, I'm familiar with the Indian players, and Travis Hafner is one for sure who plays. Remember that retired, Albert Belle played and also "Louisiana Lighting" Ron Guidry, appeared on the cover of Chess Life once.|
