Sanford and son. I haven't heard that song in years. 'Hear that Elizabeth? I'm coming to join you honey!"不
I still watch "Sanford + Son" reruns on youtube.
Red Foxx was an absolutely hilarious individual. 不 不
Remember?? That's how he passed in real life, almost exactly, in 1991. Redd (born John Elroy Sanford) was working on the then sitcom "The Royal Family". Everybody on set thought he was doing his act. He was broke and the IRS was after him. Eddie Murphy took care of all of Redd's final expenses.

I just found this thread and gotta say it's awesome. Thanks for putting this together. Now going to spend a couple hours I'm sure going back through it. I'm a deep tracks fan and can't say I've heard that Hendrix song you posted.
No problem, enjoy. That Jimi album was put out by Jimi's step-sister, Janine, and the "Experience Hendrix" company. There were only 4 albums released while Jimi was still alive, yet I seem to have about 35 :rolleyes: Most are pretty rough, but the stuff from the Experience Hendrix group are very good. Janine says there is enough unreleased material for another dozen or so albums still to come.

Before the Beach Boys and Jan and Dean, there was Dick Dale. Born Richard Anthony Monsour on May 4, 1937 in Boston. Moved with his family to El Segundo, California as a teenager. Dick battled cancer most of his life. He passed March 16, 2019 Loma Linda, California. When Hendrix learned of Dick's illness Jimi said "You'll never hear surf music again". Dick later covered Jimi's "Third Stone from the Sun"..surfer style. True pioneer, early on Dick worked side by side with Leo Fender. The surf sound is somewhat based on Lebanese/Arabic music, which Dick was raised on. If it hadn't been for some British kids invading the US...who knows what may have become.....

Tammi Terrell (b.Thomasina Winifred Montgomery) was born April 29, 1945 in Philadelphia. On October 14, 1967 Tammi collapsed into Marvin's arms while performing on stage. Doctors found a malignant brain tumor. Tammi died March 16, 1970 at just 24 years old :cry: At 17 Tammi was part of James Brown's revue. The two carried on a short affair where the 29 year old James would often beat the crap out of her. In 1966 The Temptations David Ruffin (also abused Tammi) proposed, she accepted. Problem was, David had a wife, three kids and a girlfriend back in Detroit. Marvin and Tammi released three albums together. Sadly, there are only three know video performances of the duo. All three are of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough". One is pretty rough, just so beautiful to watch and listen too, these are the other two..

Guitarist and younger sister, (by four years), Nancy Wilson was born March 16, 1954 in San Francisco. The Wilson family relocated to the Seattle area in 1960.

They say there will be dates in 2023, the 50th anniversary of Heart, but there are no confirmed dates yet.

Bon Scott (L) and Vince Lovegrove...
"The Valentines"(1966-1970) lead singer Vincent James Lovegrove was born March 19, 1947 in Claremont, Australia. Vince died when he crashed his Volkswagen minibus March 24, 2012 near Bangalow, Australia. If it hadn't been for The Valentines back ground vocalist, Bon Scott, folks outside Australia likely would never have heard of them. No disrespect to Mr. Lovegrove, he sounds and looks great. Just funny to watch Bon going crazy in the back just itchin' to get out there in front. Bon getting busted for pot possession in 1970 was pretty much the end of the group.

# 1 song this week 1963...Ruby & the Romantics.."Our Day Will Come". Miss Ruby Nash Garnett was born in Akron, Ohio June 15, 1934. She is the last surviving member of the group. Opened up for years for all the Motown acts and at The Apollo. They should have went further. The group disbanded in 1971. Trust me, I hate the watermarks and crap on some of these clips, but I believe this is the only one of the group performing the song live. From "The Mike Douglas Show" 1964 when the show was still being produced in Cleveland
