Well, you actually make me feel young. I think we may need someone born in the 70s or later to add to this list .

It's still cool, but even I barely remember duane eddy or Kookie lend me your comb.

And I didn't know George Washington was a musician. What did he play, his wooden teeth?

Anyway - keep up the good work, it is interesting.

Paul..if you google, you would have discovered that George Washington & The Colonial Army, with their 1960's hit 'Crossing the Delaware" played on the same bill as "Paul Revere & the Raiders" for a Revoluntary Warbond drive for the King of England

Henry will be back pain free prior to May 1st

Henry is back but still in pain .I'm limited to the amount of time I can sit on the computer chair .Hopefully I will be back to my normal self fairly soon .
Although somebody posted about the wonderful staff at the hospital I was in ,I unfortunately had terrible service:one hour to get pain medication ,3 hours to get a doctor to see me .That was the norm.

Hendrix served in the 101st airborne about an hour up the road from here. He took pictures during his jumps, and the views were spectacular. I saw some of them in a book I was "freeloading" through at Tower while my son stood in line for B. B. King's autograph.
