  HeMateMe: Charlie Daniels has passed, at age 83. Helluva guy. He wasn't a mega successful CW fellow, more of a second tier type. Still, worked his ass off for 60 years and put out quite a few good songs.

my personal favorite:

<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkH...>

a poor girl wants to marry and a rich girl wants to flirt/

a rich man goes to college and a poor man goes to work./

High Lonesome is a beautiful song

<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDy...>

Daniels didn't really have recording success until he was in his late 20s, a late bloomer. He toured the small club circuit with his band, and did arranging and producing for other artists. Finally had a couple of hit albums in the '70s and got traction.

Later on he did a lot of touring for the armed forces in Afghanistan and korea. RIP long haired country boy.

  HeMateMe: congrats to Ringo! A life of smoking, alcoholism and a childhood ravaged by illnesses, yet Richard Starkey has made it to the big Eight-O! Well done, Liverpool son. Who else but Ringo Starr would travel to India with a suitcase full of baked beans?

Ringo hasn't released a good album since the 70s, and even those weren't all that great, but bless him for continuing to try. I think the last Ringo LP, <Liverpool Eight> came out about two years ago. It disappeared faster than a fish and finger pie.

Ringo's 'All Starr band' lineups had respectable audiences. They played theaters, not stadiums, but people came out to see the oldies (John Entwhistle, Joe Walsh, Flo and Eddie [The Turtles], Gary Wright, Rick Danko, et. al) plus Ringo's Beatles songs done live.

That raises an interesting point. Has any pop musician undertaken a serious, multicity tour past the age of 80? Maybe Little Richard or Chuck Berry, not sure. Perhaps Ringo will be the first. He's older than McCartney, but surely Paul Mac will play another tour or two. Is Paul Simon 80 yet? I think he might have toured last year.

  Richard Taylor: <arknames> Good post about cats. I like them. I think dogs also feel for their owner if they are treated well. We are losing so many animals and even important insects that we can think about ourselves as being part of a larger thing than some political issue or whether we are "successful" and think about how to enable our own survival with reduction of emissions and use of coal, petroleum etc as well as industrial pollution and by plastics. We can also all work together rather than use these combative systems we humans use. We can learn from animals in nature.

Anyway, a good post about cats. Something happier for a change.
