ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Pete Way released an acoustic album, “Acoustic Animal,” on August 31, 2007. Fans of the man find this a delightful change from the hard-rocking Pete Way of UFO, Waysted, and various solo projects just as we do. We hope you will look for this one, although it’s a tad bit pricey but what the hey. This man has the reputation of being the hardest-partying rock-and-roll animal ever produced. He was there with Bon Scott- famed original vocalist of AC/DC, drinking with him the night he died. Mr. Way managed to survive longer than many of them and had it not been for an accident, he might still be with us today. We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection. You will be glad you did.

[ii] See “The Soviet Juggernaut” by Earl F. Ziemke and the Editors of Time-Life Books (1980).
[iii] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day. We hope within the next 8-10 years. Remain vigilant.
[iv] 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.
[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Boston but when we do, we will alert the readership. Stay tuned for further developments.
[vi] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press. Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.
[vii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022. Please stay tuned.
[viii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day. We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”
[ix] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019. This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins. Please, look for them.
[x] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016. This included the members’ solo projects. We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor. Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.
