Re: Artist Of The week 7/2/2012 - Steve Forbert - Early Years

Steve Forbert has been on my radar forever but until the last week or two I had never really taken a dive into his music. His great tunes are really, really great. I am looking forward to working my way through the rest of his catalogue. BTW......he's from Meridian, Mississippi and that is one music...

I've become kind of obsessed with finding a rural, liberal leaning place to live one of these days. Most likely somewhere in Wisconsin, Iowa....maybe Mississippi.

Re: The Neverending Thread for Political Shit

Perhaps that is more of a rural California thing. Having decisions made by LA & Bay area voters gets annoying.

Charlie played with Leonard Cohen quite a bit too in the late 1960's and early 1970's too.
I'm not sure if that makes Cohen complicit or ignorant or maybe both.
