[i] We look forward to sharing the music of not only Waylon Jennings but of Willie Nelson, and the rest of the Outlaw country music scene. We definitely hope you will keep your eyes open for the day when we do.  You will love them all.

[ii] We offered the music of this famed West Coast band- the Grass Roots- beginning on Thursday, 06-February-2014 through Saturday, 22-February-2014.  We hope you will seek their music out by visiting whatever site you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] As is the norm, we visit Martin Windrow’s amazing book, “The Last Valley,” De Capo Press (2006) as well as Time-Life Books for relevant information on this critical fight against communism.

[iv] Not sure when we promote the music of Aretha Davis but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[v] At some as yet undetermined point, we are going to go on an all-out Motown and Soul blitz, probably sometime before 2030 so we hope you will keep posted.  Otis Redding is one of the all-time greats and had he not died before his time could have been one of the music world’s megastars.

[vi] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[viii] See previous footnote.

[ix] The cops should have executed this Islamist POS on sight.  F**k him.

[x] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.
