  24. 1923 Wednesday: France announced it would seize the Rhineland to help Germany pay its debts from World War I.  This would be yet another massive slap in the face to the German people that would open their ears to the song of Adolf Hitler.  Stupid, stupid policy.

  27. 1941 Friday: The U.S. military replaced the Army Air Corps with the U.S. Army Air Forces.  In 1947, the military abolished the Air Corps by creating the United States Air Forces.  Elsewhere, the Germans and their Axis allies in Eastern Europe are preparing to launch the largest land invasion in the history of the world in two days.  Air crews are receiving their briefings, artillery targets are being registered, and the 1.5 million troops ready to cross the frontier into the Soviet Union are enjoying their final days of rest.  War is coming and the Soviets are dozing on the other side of the border.
  28. 1942 Saturday: The Afrika Korps conquers Tobruk in North Africa.  Meanwhile, Nazi Adolf Eichmann announces the deportation of Dutch Jews.  On the Eastern Front, heavy fighting continues around the Crimean fortress city of Sebastopol as German and Rumanian troops continue fighting to batter their way into the city.  Farther east, the road to Stalingrad is underway as the German spring and summer offensive is moving south with growing momentum.  In the United States, future Beach Boy[i], Brian Wilson, is born in Inglewood, California.

  30. 1944 Tuesday: The Nazis begin the mass extermination of all Jews at Auschwitz Death Camp.  Meanwhile, the Allies are advancing on all fronts in Europe.  On the Leningrad Front, the Soviets are advancing while the Allies are advancing in France and Italy.  Fighting is fierce.  Elsewhere during World War II, Japanese naval forces retreated in the Battle of the Philippine Sea after suffering heavy losses to the American fleet.  On Saipan, American forces continue battering the Japanese defenders who cling tenaciously to every scrap of geography.  It is victory or it’s death for them.
  31. 1945 Wednesday: Heavy fighting continues in the fights for Okinawa, the Philippines, and Borneo.  Meanwhile, a U.S. carrier force is softening up the Imperial Japanese forces clinging to Wake Island, one of the first places to fall to Japan shortly after the war began.  The Japanese have been sidelined here as recapturing the island did not fit in the main war plan of taking the fight TO JAPAN so the Japanese troops defending Wake are in dire straits.
  32. 1946 Thursday: The Big Four- the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union agree to begin the gradual withdrawal of Allied occupation forces from Italy.  The Soviets also agree to withdraw their troops from Bulgaria which although on the side of the Axis during World War II did not participate in Operation Barbarossa and also have traditionally been a Russian ally.  Still, they will be a part of the communist bloc.  It is what it is…
  33. 1947 Friday: Mob hitmen shot Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel dead at the Beverly Hills mansion of his girlfriend, Virginia Hill, apparently at the order of Mob associates.  Meanwhile, President Harry Truman vetoes the Taft-Hartley Act.

  55. 2009 Saturday: As the Arab Spring continues growing across the Muslim world, riot police in Tehran are finding their hands full with mobs of protesters demanding changes in their dictatorial regime.  This is ONE country that new President Barack Hussein Obama won’t provide help.  Elsewhere, jihadists near Kirkuk, Iraq, get lucky with a suicide bombing that propels 67 people up to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving at least another 200 in varying stages of suffering.  That’s the ‘religion of peace’ for you…
  56. 2010 Sunday: The Chicago Journal reports it’s been a busy weekend in President Barack Hussein Obama’s adopted hometown of the Windy City what with 40 people shot and seven of them dead.  Halfway across the world, similar issues are occurring in central Baghdad what with two car bombings ejecting at least 26 passersby up to meet with Allah sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving another 53 in varying stages of distress.
  57. 2011 Monday: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers grants private companies the right to create new website domains and suffixes.  Elsewhere, the Anglican Church in England considers permitting openly gay clergy members to become bishops.  Well.  Elsewhere, sectarian clashes break out in East Belfast, Northern Ireland, leading to numerous people being trucked off to the hospital and others to the hoosegow.
  58. 2012 Wednesday: Hospital authorities remove former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak–reported to be in a coma–from life support.  Meanwhile, a Syrian fighter pilot lands in Jordan and the pilot seeks asylum from the ongoing civil war.  Elsewhere, as southern Israel continues to brace under an ongoing barrage of (Iranian) rockets from the Palestinians, the Israeli air force begins to carry out sustained strikes on Hamas (and Iranian) targets in the region.
  59. 2013 Thursday: Instagram offers its users the ability to upload videos to its service.  Elsewhere, the Committee on the Rights of the Child accuses E-V-I-L Israeli soldiers of torturing Palestinian children and using the poor little bastards as human shields.  (Note- what a crock of crap!).  Elsewhere, the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 4 games to 3 by a final score of 95-88 successfully defending their title from the previous year.  Knuckle-dragging cretin LeBron James is declared the MVP for the second year in a row.
  60. 2014 Friday: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko initiates a 7-day cease-fire, allowing troops to defend themselves but not to attack; during the cease-fire, separatists can turn in weapons and receive amnesty; so far, rebels have rejected the offer.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration rushes 300 U.S. troops to Iraq to help that government’s forces battle the ISIS thugs in the oil-refining city of Baiji.   Light these scum-sucking bastards UP.
  61. 2015 Saturday: After white racist Dylann Storm Roof murders nine African Americans at the church in South Carolina earlier in the week, mass protests break out demanding the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the Capitol building.   Meanwhile, in southern Pakistan, a heat wave peaks killing at least 2,000 people from heat stroke and dehydration.   Elsewhere, in Japan, one-thousand female robots named “Pepper” sell out in under one minute at $1,600 per unit; so says creator SoftBank Robotics Corp.
  62. 2016 Monday: The U.S. Supreme Court- noting that it has already reviewed other such bans on ‘assault weapons’ (ALL weapons are ‘assault weapons’ whether they be a gun or a screwdriver or even fists)- refuses to hear other states’ bans such as Connecticut and New York.  What we need is a universal permit to carry arms, both out in the open and concealed.  Cleansing the nation of ‘gun-free zones’ would also enhance the safety of every American.  Meanwhile, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reports that the number is higher than ever what with endless wars, climate disasters, and economic impoverishment: 65.3 million people (which the Democrats want to bring to the U.S.)
  63. 2017 Tuesday: Following his arrest for driving under the influence, Tiger Woods checks into a rehab clinic to deal with his pain medication dependency and his ongoing sleep disorders.   Elsewhere, as outrage continues to grow over the death of 22-year-old American tourist Otto Warmbier at the hands of North Korean jailers, Young Pioneers Tours, the firm taking foreigners into the hellhole known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea says it ‘won’t be taking any other Americans into that godforsaken country as the risk is simply too high.’  (Note- if you remember, young Mr. Warmbier visited the nation, removed a poster from a hotel room wall for a souvenir and then underwent arrest, a bulls**t trial, imprisonment, and just before he died, Kim Jong Un sent his catatonic body home to his parents).
  64. 2018 Wednesday: Bowing to pressure from his political enemies and armies of wailing illegal aliens, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order ending separation of families at the border, a policy that began under the previous administration but which no one conveniently remembers.   Meanwhile (and this is a good one!), the Chi-Coms express their regrets that the United States is withdrawing from the bulls**t U.N. Human Rights Council.  With dictators, thugs, criminals, and communists making up its membership, the organization is little more than a joke.
  65. 2019 Thursday: Leader of communist China, Xi Jinping, travels to North Korea to visit with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, the first Chinese leader to travel to the S-hole country in 14 years.  In other news, the Iranians commit an overt act of war when their military shoots down a U.S. surveillance drone which they claim trespassed into their airspace.  Almost immediately, the military-industrial-political complex in the United States as well as Democrats and pro-war RINOs begin banging the drum for President Donald J. Trump to launch yet another unnecessary Middle Eastern war.  Wow.
  66. 2020 Saturday: President Donald J. Trump kicked off his official 2020 re-election bid with a massive rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  What a barn burner, he seems unstoppable.  Moving on, here are today’s stats for the Xi Jinping special Wuhan bat flu virus, first the globe: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,295,615 confirmed cases, 121,441 confirmed deaths, and 714,961 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 169,309 confirmed cases, 5,424 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 762 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 640 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for the CHOP state, Washington: 28,163 confirmed cases, 1,265 confirmed deaths, but sadly, like California, moron Gov. Jay Inslee will NOT REPORT the number of confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2020 Saturday A: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi warns Ankara, Turkey, that IF Turkish backed Libyan thugs attack Sirte, the Egyptian army would immediately strike out and destroy the Libyan rebels causing problems in their next-door neighbor.  The Turkish president had no clue as to what to say when faced with a genuinely formidable threat and so remained silent.  Good for you, President al-Sissi!
  68. 2020 Saturday B: In House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of California, a violent mob of leftist ‘protesters’ tore down a statue of General (and President) Ulysses S. Grant.  Unbeknownst to these ignorant Black Lives Matter and Antifa trash rioters, Grant was the guiding military light of the Civil War on the northern side.  He freed slaves and was a strong proponent of recruiting newly freed blacks to serve in the Union army.  It is clear that these so-called ‘protesters’ are not about fighting for civil rights but are Marxists-Leninists in need of immediate extermination.  Time for good Americans to stand up and begin fighting back against this communist scum.  This is what we will get if “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins the White House in November.  VOTE TRUMP!
  69. 2021 Sunday: Folks, today is Sunday, Father’s Day Sunday, let’s hope it’s a slow news day as all the baby mamas will bring all their bastard brats to meet their daddies doing time in America’s hoosegows, today.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Ian Anderson finally got the record label to give him a solo project without forcing him to label it a ‘Jethro Tull’ album.  “Walk into Light” came out on December 05, 1983 and it was a two-man band: Ian Anderson (all instruments) and Peter John Vettese (keyboards, synthesizers, and backing vocals).  Fans enjoy the mellow sounds and smooth flow of music which as always sparkles and shines with Anderson’s wit.  He and Vettese co-wrote many of the tracks so in many ways, it is more a collaborative album than it is a ‘solo effort.’  We hope everyone will seek this one out and consider adding it to your growing record collection- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The second album by the British band Aviator, “Turbulence,” came out on March 10, 1980 and most likely was released in fulfillment of whatever contract the band had with their record company.  Now a three-piece with the exit of integral member Jack Lancaster (all saxophones and brass instruments from Blodwyn Pig), the band featured Clive Bunker (drummer and percussion from Jethro Tull), John G. Perry (bass/vocals from a studio career), and Mick Rogers (guitars and vocals from Manfred Mann’s Earth Band).  The album has its moments and to us is an important part of English rock music history in much the same way other spin-off bands such as Mott and Widowmaker were from Mott the Hoople and Spooky Tooth were.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for fine rock music because folks, it will become a worthy addition to any rock music collection.  Enjoy.

Elsewhere, crackpot Senator Chris Murphy, DS-CT, launches a filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate in an effort to ramrod comprehensive gun control through in the wake of the massacre at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  (Note- Senator Murphy, since the shooter was a radical jihadist who committed his life to ISIS, wouldn’t it make more sense to filibuster so NO more flipping Muslims enter the frigging country?  Dumbass liberals).
  60. 2017 Thursday: In the still free bastion of democracy of Hong Kong, a new record price is set for a parking lot: $664,000.  That’s capitalism for you!  Elsewhere, in the Congressional Baseball Game at Washington Nationals baseball park, the Democrats deliver the Republicans a pounding in the charity game,  winning by a final score of 11-2.  However, since Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, was shot by a Bernie Sanders’ whacked out supporter, the victorious Democrats in a show of sympathy lend the trophy to the GOP until the Louisiana Republican makes a full recovery.
  61. 2018 Friday: Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort underwent jailing to await two criminal trials; a federal judge revoked his house arrest over phony allegations of witness tampering in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s phony investigation into purported “Trump-Russia collusion,” something the special counsel failed to find or to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.  Sadly, Manafort received seven years in prison on federal charges.  The poor man is a political prisoner, punished by the Democrats because he helped Donald Trump win the presidency.
  62. 2019 Saturday: The sports memorabilia world lights its hair on fire as a baseball jersey belonging to the world’s greatest Babe Ruth brings in a record $5.64 million at auction in New York City.  Stunning!  Elsewhere, Chi-Com stooge Carrie Lam- chief executive of Hong Kong- announces the suspension of the new extradition law that would send FREE Hong Kongens to mainland China for trial.  The protests have ground Beijing’s rule of the former British crown colony into the dust.  (Note- several months later, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu would arrive that would help Xi Jinping kill two birds with one stone- Hong Kong freedom fighters and U.S. President Donald J. Trump.  F**king diabolical).
  63. 2020 Monday: Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone warlord RAZ changed the name of the new utopic socialized crap hole from CHAZ to CHOP: Capitol Hill Organized Protest.  There, people tremble in fear that they might be beaten and/or evicted at any time while Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin, CPUSA-WA, pays it little mind and Gov. Jay Inslee- a loser if one ever existed- acts as though he knows nothing about it, a la Sergeant Schultz.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr make it known that the pending ‘tell-all’ book by John “Perpetual War” Bolton in which, he attacks his former boss, the current president, has not gone through the normal processes and could be in violation of long-standing federal policy.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds civil rights for homosexuals.  It is what it is.  Finally, President Trump informed the world that he is moving ahead with his planned Oklahoma City rally this upcoming Saturday, June 20, 2020.  The left is wailing, gnashing its teeth but the commander-in-chief is correct when he says, ‘all the fears of the Chinese bat flu went out the window when people were out in the streets rioting over the death of George Floyd but oh, no, Trump can’t hold any rallies because we must not take the chance of getting the Wuhan Virus.  Oh, please.  Here is the deal: 800,000 people have sought tickets to the 20,000 seat arena.  Period.  Joe Biden cannot match that.  
  64. 2020 Monday A: Speaking of the Chinese Bat Virus, the one comrade Xi dispatched to the rest of the world, here are today’s stats, world first: 7,965,453 confirmed cases, 434,432 confirmed deaths, and 3,809,566 confirmed recoveries.   Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,148,380 confirmed cases, 117,700 confirmed deaths, and 662,226 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are today’s stats, Golden State first: 151,452 confirmed cases, 5,089 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the numbers: 728 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 629 confirmed recoveries.  Finally in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 26,067 confirmed cases, 1,220 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2021 Tuesday: You know the drill- stick around to find out what the corrupt, illegal Biden regime is up to today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The third of three Jethro Tull albums featuring English acoustic themes, “Stormwatch,” came out on September 14, 1979.  This would be the final album featuring the lineup that had labored through most of the Seventies creating the music Ian Anderson created in his brain.  The lineup features Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), John Glascock (bass), John Evan (keyboards), Barriemore Barlow (drums), and Dee Palmer (keyboards and synthesizers).  The album resembled the two previous albums, “Songs from the Wood” and “Heavy Horses” and perhaps it was this style of music that created seams in a heretofore seamless band.  Ah, well, as completists, we feel compelled to own every piece of music by a band which is why we encourage everyone to do the same thing- seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your listening pleasure daily.  We think you will indeed enjoy it.

162. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JUNE 11, 2020

RR. 1993 Saturday: The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled that people who commit so-called ‘hate crimes’ ‘could be sentenced to extra punishment.’ The Court also ruled in favor of nutty religious groups saying that ‘they indeed had a constitutional right to sacrifice animals during worship services.’ The question is, if the nuts want to sacrifice human beings—who technically are animals, too, is that okay?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 07, 1977, Jethro Tull- at the behest of their record label obviously- released their second official ‘best of package,’ “Repeat the Best of Jethro Tull, Volume II” which featured slim pickings of 10 tracks not included on their first ‘best of’ package including an unreleased track with which to sweeten the deal for the fans.   If you have yet to introduce the music of this band to your ears, this is a good way in which one can do it just so long as you buy “M.U.- the Best of Jethro Tull,” and “Living in the Past” at the same time, too.  In that way, you are able to get a good selection of music with which to delight one’s auditory senses.  We hope you will seek it out by visiting whatever site it is you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  Remember this, however, with Amazon.com having become the POS company that it has, try shopping LOCAL

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Having disbanded Wild Turkey for the immediate future, Glenn Cornick (bass, keyboards, harmonics, and vocals) joined forces with former Fleetwood Mac member Bob Welch (guitars, vocals, and keyboards) and Thom Mooney (drums and percussion), late from Todd Rundgren’s band.   As talented as these musicians are, this was not their finest work and left much to be desired.  Their sophomore effort would be delightful but the band would then break up.  Still, “Paris” by Paris- the name of their new band- came out on January 04, 1976 and is an important introduction as to what was to come.  Seek it out, give it a good listen, and add it to your growing album collection- you will be glad you did.

  63. 2020 Saturday: More information continues coming to light about how the communist Chinese have been working on bat viruses for the past 15-20 years.  The question is WHY?  Some say it’s because of SARS which caused numerous deaths when it broke out a decade or so ago while others believe- us, too- that it is for biowarfare research.  Well, it appears that COVID-19 did manage to jailbreak the Wuhan Institute of Virology and away we go.  Now dictator for life Xi Jinping says he welcomes a W.H.O.-led investigation into the origin of the Wuhan Virus when it ends.  When it ends?  And the W.H.O.?  The World Health Organization does the bidding of Xi Jinping so why would anyone believe anything it or the communists in Beijing say?  Here are today’s stats, first for the globe: 5,288,392 confirmed cases, 340,875 confirmed deaths, and 2,102,557 confirmed recoveries the last of which gives us hope as the number of recoveries far outweighs deaths.
  64. 2020 Saturday A: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the United States: 1,656,906 confirmed cases, 97,414 confirmed deaths, and 334,452 confirmed recoveries.  Now, we head to the breakdown of the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, California first: 90,631 confirmed cases, 3,708 confirmed deaths, but as usual, ZERO confirmed recoveries because Gov. Gavin Newsom continues playing politics.  He and his regime believe that IF they continue NOT publishing the number of recoveries, Californians will be afraid but next week when we begin seeing temperatures soar to over 100 degrees, people are going to disobey all governmental orders and edicts.  We won’t forget WHO is destroying the economy and It’s NOT President Donald J. Trump.  No, it’s Democrat governors.  Here are the stats for Hawaii: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 579 confirmed recoveries.  Here at the statistics for Washington state: 19,265 confirmed cases, 1,050 confirmed deaths, and ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Come on, Gov. Jay Inslee, release the true stats, you worthless POS.
  65. 2020 Saturday B: Our contacts in Hong Kong continue scoffing at the numbers put out by the communists in Beijing.  Communist China claims 82,974 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 78,261 confirmed recoveries while Hong Kong claims 1,066 confirmed cases, 4 confirmed deaths, and 1,029 confirmed recoveries.  Our sources claim the numbers for communist China are more like 780,000 confirmed cases, 400,000-plus deaths, and about 1,700,000 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you for the info, please stay safe, Hong Kong!  Free Hong Kong!  Free Macau!  Free Taiwan!  Free Tibet!  Free Mainland China!  Time to return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as the legitimate government of the mainland and the People’s Republic of China as a usurper government.  We must bring Taiwan back to the United Nations and restore their seat on the U.N. Security Council as it was before the communist takeover.  
  66. 2021 Sunday: As you know, we await the news of the day…stick around and discover the truth…

  55. 2017 Wednesday: Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein appoints former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III special counsel to investigate the allegations that the Russians interfered in the 2016 Presidential Election.  This charade would continue for nearly two years and would hamper efforts by the 45th president to enact the America First agenda. 
  56. 2018 Thursday: The U.S. Senate confirms Gina Haspel as the first female director of the Central Intelligence Agency.  Meanwhile, with ISIS in the process of ongoing devastation, Copenhagen announces that it will begin a partial withdrawal of its special forces from Iraq. 
  57. 2019 Friday: Taiwan becomes the first Asian nation to legalize same-sex marriage as a vote by parliament confirms it.  Based on this alone is reason enough as to WHY the civilized world must welcome Taiwan- the Republic of China, aka Nationalist China, aka FREE China- back to the United Nations as an original founding member.  Elsewhere, a federal judge in Virginia sentences a former CIA officer- Kevin Patrick Mallory- to a 20-year stretch in a federal prison for having spied on behalf of the Chi-Coms.  Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives passes the Equality Act which prohibits discrimination based on sexual preferences and gender identity.  (Note- there was a time when people kept this crap to themselves ut no more- thus we now have a law).

Ige.  Finally, here is Washington state’s stats: 18,433 confirmed cases, 1,001 confirmed deaths, but, like California, 0 number of confirmed recoveries. 
  59. 2020 Sunday A: Now, interesting note here: people are criticizing Russia for not sharing their REAL stats, they say the number of deaths are too low.  Well, Russia said today they are only listing those citizens actually killed by the coronavirus and not those who might have died with the virus but from other things.  Would that not be great if the CDC would do the same thing and would it not be great if the CDC forced every state to report the actual statistics?  Here’s Russia’s stats: 281,752 confirmed cases, 2,631 confirmed deaths, and 67,373 confirmed recoveries.  IF anyone is lying about their numbers, it’s the communist Chinese, the nation that gave this crap to the entire world.  Here are their numbers: 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  People’s Republic of China: NOTHING BUT LIARS.
  60. 2021 Monday: Amigos, stick around and discover the truth along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The final studio album released by Badfinger- “Head First”- came out on November 14, 2000 and it featured the following lineup: Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Bob Jackson (rhythm guitars, keyboards, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  You say, how can this be?  Some of these folks are dead?  Yep, true, absolutely true.  Here is the deal- 26 years ago- that’s correct- 26 years ago- while the band was on tour, their record company said YOU must record another album on the heels of “Wish You Were Here” trying to squeeze the last drop of output out of this tragedy-laced band.  Tired, frustrated, and with dissension in the ranks- Molland jumped ship- the group went into the studio and in two weeks created this album which then disappeared into the vaults.  Thus- 26 years later- “Head First” finally became available to the fans.  We enjoy it and suspect you will, too, because Pete Ham was a unique performer and vocalist.  Great album, please, seek it out and give it a good listen.  You will be glad you did.

Michael Flynn case- Judge Emmet Sullivan- refuses to let the case go even after the U.S. Department of Justice said it’s not going to prosecute this case.  This is what is wrong in the United States, we have dictatorial judges who need to be impeached and removed from office.  Perhaps when the GOP controls both houses of Congress in January 2021?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following the bust-up of Apple Records and Badfinger being thrown to the winds, their record company compiled 17 key tracks from the post Apple albums on “The Best of Badfinger Volume 2” (January 21, 1990).  You get a key selection of illuminating tracks that demonstrate the potential this star-crossed band possessed so it makes one wonder as to what might have happened had they NOT signed with Apple and found another company willing to market their potential instead of milking them for everything they had like a damp sponge.  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your listening day.  We think you will be glad you took the time to give it a thorough listening.  Enjoy.

  56. 2007 Sunday: The so-called ‘religion of peace’ is busy today.  In Iraq, a mosque in Karbala suffers a suicide bombing that blows 55 worshippers up and on their way to meet with Allah far sooner than any of them may have planned.  Meanwhile, farther east in Pakistan, a suicide bombing there blows another 22 people to meet with Allah while also wounding several government officials and loads of other people going about their daily lives.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Michael Schenker is always on a musical quest much like Carlos Santana and he always puts together good groups with which to get his musical talents across to his millions of fans.  “Resurrection” came out under the moniker “Michael Schenker Fest” on December 15, 2018.  The band featured an amalgam of his musical friends including vocalist Graham Bonnet, Gary Barden, Robin McAuley, and Doogie White plus his usual rhythm section adding the power punch that this mad axman requires to light stages ablaze and melt the minds of his beloved fans.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection; you will be glad you did.
