Trump wants to put a hold on any further monies from the United States going to the World Health Organization until Beijing and the WHO account for their actions in the wake of the Wuhan Virus, aka the Kung Flu, aka Wuhan Flu, aka coronavirus crisis.  The president also wants to get to the bottom of WHY more black Americans are falling ill to this insidious virus.  What did the Chinese engineer in their Wuhan laboratory?  Currently, at the time of this posting, there are 1,428,428 confirmed cases around the globe what with 300,198 confirmed recoveries and 82,020 confirmed deaths.  Thank you, People’s Republic of China!  Meanwhile, in the United States, there are 398,185 confirmed cases with 12,844 confirmed deaths.  It would appear that Plaquenil aka hydroxychloroquine is extremely promising so states and locales (ahem, New York state and New York City), allow doctors to prescribe it to their extremely ill patients.  What do you have to lose, Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill Di Blasio?  Nothing!  Stop playing politics with the lives of people.   Finally, singer-songwriter John Prine dies from COVID-19 at age 73.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Famed guitarist Michael Schenker decided that he would record an album of songs that influenced him early on in his career and brought together a variety of musicians to help him knock out 13 amazing tunes.  “By Invitation Only” came out on June 25, 2011 and featured not only the blazing guitarist but a who’s who of rockers such as bassists Tony Franklin (The Firm), Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel), Jeff Pilson (Dokken, Dio, Foreigner), among others as well as drummers such as Mike Baird (Journey), Simon Wright (AC/DC, Dio), Aynsley Dunbar (Journey, Jefferson Starship), among others.  Most of the tunes are recorded as power trios with the exception of one in which, a saxophone solo was essential.  Say what you will but it appears that Mr. Schenker NEVER sleeps (must be some good stuff).  Seek him out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  24. 1943 Wednesday: “Oklahoma!” the first musical play by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, opened on Broadway.  Elsewhere, on the southern Eastern Front- the Caucasus- the Red Army is mauling overstretched German military forces who are falling back in disarray to the Kuban defensive line.  The goal to capture the Caucasus and its oilfields is now little more than a pipe dream unless, of course, the Turks enter the war on the side of their former partners in World War I.  They don’t.
  25. 1944 Friday: German ally Hungary orders its Jews to wear yellow stars beginning April 5, so its police forces and the Nazis can find them.  Meanwhile, future guitarist with Mott the Hoople[iii] and Bad Company[iv]—Mick Ralphs—was born in in Stoke Lacy, Herefordshire, England on this date.  Elsewhere, in Alexandria, Virginia, future U.S. Senator Angus King is born.  A future ‘independent’ (a reliable Democrat vote), he would enter the world’s greatest deliberative body on January 03, 2013 representing Maine.  Meanwhile, in the Pacific Theater, U.S. air assets are pounding Japanese positions on the island of Palau ahead of an invasion to drive them out and retake the strategic island.
  26. 1945 Saturday: The Red Army continues plowing through Poland, capturing Upper Silesia on the way to the east German border.  Fighting is fierce, the Germans fighting for every scrap of land as for them, it’s better to fight the battle in Poland than in the homeland.  Russian forces are so powerful and the Germans so weak, the Nazis are fighting on nothing more than fumes which for them is formidable for their enemies.
  27. 1946 Sunday: A liberated Greece holds its first post-World War II elections.  The communists are striving to take power if they can but the Royalists with British help will stop them cold.

  33. 1958 Monday: The Chess record label released “Johnny B. Goode” by Chuck Berry[vii] on this date.
  34. 1959 Tuesday: The Dalai Lama flees Communist China and receives political asylum in neighboring India.  The communists claim that Tibet belongs to them but Tibet does not, it’s been an independent kingdom for all time.  The communists are invading the country to subjugate it, it’s people, and to provide lebensraum for its people.  Wait, isn’t that what the Nazis called their land-grabs?  Living room for their people?  Funny how history tends to repeat itself…
  35. 1960 Thursday: Future guitarist with the British band, the Clash[viii]—Vince White—is born in London, England, on this date.
  36. 1962 Saturday: The 91st U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Charles Evans Whittaker left the court on this date.  A Republican, President Dwight D.

  42. 1973 Saturday: In the 12th round of their heavyweight title fight, Ken Norton beats Muhammad Ali in a split decision.  Losing the North American Boxing Federation title, Ali’s pro-career record dropped to 42-2.  As for Ken Norton, his record improved to 30-1.  Norton and Ali would meet again later in the year.
  43. 1975 Tuesday: After a record 20 seasons on CBS-TV, “Gunsmoke” ended its run with its final first-run episode, “The Sharecroppers.”  This was perhaps one of the all-time greatest TV westerns but now with all the WOKE stupidity f***ing up the country, it would probably be deemed RACIST.  F*** them.  
  44. 1976 Wednesday: The New Jersey Supreme Court ruled that the family of Karen Ann Quinlan, who was in a persistent vegetative state, could disconnect her from her respirator.  However, she remained unconscious until death finally claimed her in 1985.

  70. 2019 Sunday: So many illegal aliens are attempting to storm the United States that the Trump administration has threatened to close the border with Mexico.  The American people want to know, when will there be enough ‘invaders’ for the ruling class to understand this and to then authorize the use of deadly force?  We cannot wait until the nation has been toppled via the sheer numbers of illegals seeking entry to the country.  Shoot them down!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Waysted returned on April 30, 2008, with the album, “The Harsh Reality.”  We have the great Pete Way on bass and vocals, Finn Moore on vocals, Chris George (guitars), and Paul Haslin handle the percussion duties.  Fans of both Waysted and Pete Way love this album, seeing it as among the best albums the Waysted boys have ever recorded.  We tend to agree and recommend that everyone rush out and give this album a good listen, it’s that good and worth every penny anyone wants for it.  Some things you cannot fake and the intensity and the vigor encapsulated on this album will make anyone lifelong fans of the rockers that roared out of the 1960s and 1970s and will cause them to toss the modern music into the crapper.  Search for it- you’ll love it but folks- look to eBay or somewhere else because Amazon.com wants nearly a grand- $1,000- for this album and friends, NO album is worth that kind of money unless it’s a massive collection of Faces bootleg shows.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY MARCH 31, 2021

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Wednesday, March 31, 2021:

ENDNOTES:


[i] Observed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin.

[ii] We hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035.  We hope you will remain with us.

[iii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iv] See previous footnote.

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of Supertramp but we hope to do it within the next year or so.  You will not want to miss this group, that we can tell you.

[vi] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[vii] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do.

[viii] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[ix] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.
