    Glad to see Ron McKernan make an appearance! He is often dismissed, but was an important musical element of the early Dead.

    But the elephant in the room is Jimi Hendrix. We can't leave him out. I was only going to do one video for this season but if no one posts a Hendrix video by noon Hawaii time I will do one.

    Jim left a warning about copyright but I'm willing to take the risk if there's none there once I wake up tomorrow

    Likewise with the Minutemen contribution Brian. Excellent take on Fascist earlier this week.

    Chris Bell of Big Star is, sadly, another member of the 27 club. He died in 1978. This beautiful song comes his solo album, I Am the Cosmos, released posthumously in 1992.

    This is a song Bowie wrote with Giorgio Moroder for the movie "Cat People". I did this on tiple for a fire theme Season years ago, I think Mattydee was the host. This time I played it on a Kiwaya K-Wave concert uke using the Mel9 pedal, and then feeding that through distortion and chorus effects.

    When I'm near Eisley's pen, I'm often singing songs with alternate rabbit-themed lyrics. This week, it was "You're face to face with the bun who sold the world." Molly asked what he got for it. I said, "Well, there was a lot of depreciation." She responded, "That was a way more depressing answer than I was expecting." I said, "You know, it starts losing value the moment you drive it off the lot."




    There's a star-bun
    Making lots of poo
    He ate a lot of kibble
    Now he has to see it through
    There's an Eisley
    Sitting in his pen
    He'd like to hump a balloon
    If you'd watch him now and then

    Right! I'm awake and caught up.

    If you guys haven't seen Ceejay's various masterclasses on blues shredding this week, do yourself a favour and go watch them.

    Anyway... you were warned. Jimi uploading as we speak.

    New year. New fun. The season I recently missed the most was the season about missed seasons
