Ray Charles Robinson Sr. passed away on this date in 2004 in Beverly Hills. He was born September 23, 1930 Albany, Georgia. The term "legend' gets used all the time. Heck, I use it about every posting. But there is only one who you can call "The Genius".

"I've Got A Woman"..from the "Live at The Olympia" concert in Paris, 2000...the Raelettes and Ray's back up band were stuck at the airport and didn't make the show. Didn't phase him one bit...

Reg Presley, lead singer of the group "The Troggs", was born on this date in 1941 Andover, England. He passed away February 4, 2013 in Andover, England...... "Wild Thing"..1966

Johnny Cash's "One Piece At A Time" is the #1 country hit this week in 1976. The song tells the story of a GM assembly line worker who steals a Cadillac off the line, piece by piece, over the span of 20+ years. Of course the models change throughout this time frame, and he ends up with a "custom" Caddy. Coming from several generations of Dayton, Ohio GM workers myself, I remember hearing stories like this growing up. One in particular was a friend of ole Dad's who did take home enough bits and pieces to make a log splitter years ago :LOL:

The actual "Psychobilly" Cadillac used in Johnny's above video is now in a museum in Roscoe, Illinois...

Rory Gallagher died on this date in 1995 London. He was born March 2, 1948 Ballyshannon, Ireland. Probably the most underrated and overlooked guitarist of the era. Just too many other great players at that same time. According to lore, in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Jimi Hendrix was asked, “How does it feel to be the greatest guitarist in the world?” He is believed to have answered, “I don't know, go ask Rory Gallagher.”

The Monterey International Pop Festival opened on June 16, 1967. Tried to include a couple clips from "The Outtakes" footage. Worth checking out The Criterion Collection Blu-ray box set for that 2 hour disc alone, and the 5.1 mixes. Assuming anyone still buys dvd's :unsure:

"Rollin' and Tumblin'"..Canned Heat

"Driftin' Blues"..The Paul Butterfield Blues Band...w/ still tickin' Elvin Bishop on guitar

"Drinkin' Wine""..The Electric Flag..with Mike Bloomfield on lead guitar and Buddy Miles on drums..not bad for their debut performance

"Ball and Chain"...Big Brother and the Holding Company..seen it probably 1,000 times, still get the same expression on my face as Mama Cass did seeing it live. It was actually their second time performing the song at the festival, first one the day before was not recorded

...and of course, "Wild Thing"..single greatest performance in rock history☮

In the two Waylon Jennings clips you posted, the only way you could possibly know that they were the same guy is that they were playing the same guitar!

Johnny said that when he and Waylon shared an apartment way back, he would have to hide the pills (Amphetamines, speed) from Waylon because he was taking way too many. Waylon would always find them Johnny said. His appearance shows the progression from some pills/pot to, he himself said, a $1,500 A DAY coke habit.
