    My understanding is he became quite the outspoken right-winger in recent years/decades, and I don't want to stir up trouble at this forum for that, but I just heard Charlie Daniels has died. He is of my parents' generation and I am sad to keep saying goodbye to people who were lucky enough to live into their eighties.

    I remember when "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" was THE hit song of the summer of 1979, before the ELO song "Don't Bring Me Down" knocked it out of the number one position on Kasey Casem's Top 40 Countown.

    Let's all toke on a number in memory of Charlie Daniels today.

    Related, I just ran across this video after first seeing it a few years ago which combines a shocking amount of my interests - Dinosaur Jr. covering Neil Young's "Cortez the Killer" with Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo singing.

    Thanks for mentioning this, Josh. I'm listening to the album on YT now. It is excellent. "Florida" was interesting. I'll probably pick up the CD if I see it while surfing the stacks of wax at the few but very good record/CD shops around here. I haven't done that for a few months for obvious reasons, although I did buy his Hitchhiker a while back. That might have been the same trip in which I found Re-ac-tor for the first time. That album made my wife and kids yell at me to turn down the stereo. I've been a Neil fan forever, but he has released so many albums that I'm always stumbling upon ones that are new to me.

    We can't have "Cortez" without "Powderfinger", can we?



    I wonder if Neil stole this opening riff from Blackfoot. Or maybe they stole it from him but got it on a record two years before he did. Maybe they toured together. Maybe they jammed together "late at night when the people were gone". Who knows.



    Neil Young fans might like this Drive-By Truckers rock song history lesson about that includes a story about "Powderfinger", among other things.

    Wow, that brings back some memories. That is one kickass rock song!

    Now I'm listening to high-energy rock instead of going in the other direction, as one ought to on a Friday night after a long week.

    Some of this may seem a little cheesy by today's standards, but for 1978, I bet this live version of a Camaro drivin', moustache & mullet wearin' 1970s rock "standard" was as good as anything you could see on a rock stage.

    What first caught my ear is what sounds like a loose cover of Zeppelin's "In My Time Of Dying" from about 0:25 to 2:12. Then the usual into to "Bad Motor Scooter" starts. But wait, there's more! A lot more...about fifteen minutes more, and it's worth watching if you like this era and style.



    And now here's some Led for your head, as the DJs used to say.



    Yes, it's true. I have become Homer Simpson.
