On April 17, 1990, Supertramp released its first ‘rockumentary,’ on Video but now obviously on DVD, “The Story So Far.”  As is the norm, you get the band doing reviews, concert footage, and on the DVD, some music videos from the MTV era all in one convenient place to enjoy.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider making it a part of your collection of fine rock-and-roll because even a classic band at its worst (and this ain’t that) is ultimately better than any of the crap that passes for music nowadays.  Pick it up, watch, listen, and enjoy and then tell us we’re wrong.  You know you can’t.

Author: Chef Brian Carrick, ACF Retired

My colleagues and I no longer share old photos of us, as the price of success means that lunatics and nuts come looking for one. Therefore, we hired local up-and-coming Bakersfield-Oildale, California street artist, Simone, to create facsimiles of us so we can remain somewhat obscure. Ah, well, I began my culinary career in 1969 bussing tables at age 12 and became a cook's apprentice in 1973 at age 17. I have worked all over California, Hawaii, Washington State, and even a brief time in Arizona. Chef Brian Carrick writes from Weedpatch, California. Chef Brian Carrick is a Conservative Republican.
