Wild Turkey returned with a new album, “Stealer of Years” on April 26, 1996.  The band featured the accomplished Cornick (bass, guitars, keyboards, harmonicas), Gary Pickford-Hopkins (vocals), Alan “Tweke” Lewis (guitars), Jon Blackmore (guitars/vocals), and Brian Thomas (drums).  One finds music similar to that of the early Jethro Tull with Cornick’s own unique musical sensibilities interwoven into the texture.  Having had the opportunity to have seen this band back in the 1970s, all we can say is that everyone must seek this one out and give it a good listen- we think you will be extremely glad that you did.  Enjoy.

This is a cartoon caricature of me when I was working at a restaurant in Wasco, CA, my hometown. The up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist Simone did portraits of each of us here at the blog so I hope you like them as much as I, ahem, do. The important thing for us as foodservice business owners is that we protect our identities because in the age of the Cancel Culture, IF Marxist punks leads boycotts against us, it can destroy businesses that have been around for years, if not decades. Ah, well, I joined the Chefs de Cuisine of Greater Bakersfield, ACF, not long after it was chartered and am still a member even though the chapter is no longer in operation. I began working in foodservice in the late 1960’s, moved from Wasco, CA, to Monterey, CA, and then returned to my hometown in 2004. I have been a foodserver, a Mixologist, and am a Certified Cook. I am equally at home in both the kitchen and behind the bar (and on the floor, too). My passions are numerous, and my favorite is working in the bakery whenever I have had a chance. Bea O’Malley writes from her hometown of Wasco, California Bea O’Malley is a proud member of the Democratic Party.
