One again, rock god Michael Schenker went on the road and in Japan, he recorded some amazing live shows in a five-night run.  The resulting effort, “The Michael Schenker Story Live” came out on August 13, 1997 and featured the mind-boggling German joined by David Van Landing (vocals, percussion), Seth Bernstein (guitars/keyboards/vocals), Barry Sparks (bass/guitars/vocals), and Shane Gaalass (drums/acoustic guitars).  This fabulous 2-CD set features music from throughout his career which is why it’s worthy of whatever price the seller is charging for it.  We hope you will rush out and seek this one out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your musical day.  You will be glad you did.

Author: Chef Hector Santanamos "El Chilote" De Soto CEC-ACF

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog. I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse. I was a young cook back in the early 1960's when I commenced my culinary career. I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own. I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska. From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug. El Chilote writes from Shafter, California. El Chilote is a moderate Democrat. Contact me at elchilote2121N@yahoo.com or elchilotegrande10@gmail.com
