I actually attended a few of his (Deadida's) seminars. He was an elitist crackpot. Or is that redundant for a Frenchman? :lol:

At the time, Algeria was a French... province (?) I guess is the right word. The US had a military advisory group there when I was a kid, the US Army used the French to prove the effectiveness of armed helicopters in order to defeat the Key West Agreement precluding them from fielding armed aircraft.

Wow, sorry, information overload. :lol:

Keith Miller dies aged 84. Possibly Australia's greatest allround cricketer.

Here's what Michael Parkinson had to say about Keith. A great anecdote if ever I saw one...

Quote

Here was this man who played cricket, hit big 6's looked like Errol Flynn, broad-shouldered, dark hair, blue eyes, the ladies loved him, every man wanted to be him. Then he went in the war and became a fighter pilot, and had a hell of a war, and he came out of it with a with a sense of perspective of about what cricket was about. Miller once said about pressure, and this should be in every dressing room of every sporting event anywhere in the world, "Pressure," he said, "I'll tell you what pressure is. Pressure is a Messerschmitt up your arse," he said. "Playing cricket is not". And I love that. He's right. If you went through a war like he did, and you were attacked by fighters and that sort of thing, what does a game of cricket count, what does it matter in the great scheme of things?

Has anyone thought about putting Marky or Tommy Ramone on Death Watch. With Johnny just recently in the grave it leaves these drummers as the lonely survivors. Odds are that they'll be next. ;-)

Pardon me but I got to run

Rock-and-roller Cordell Jackson acclaimed late in life
By Bill Dries

October 15, 2004

Cordell Jackson, who started her own record label in Memphis in the 1950s and re-emerged later in life as the guitar chord-crunching "Rock-and-Roll Granny," died Thursday evening, according to her family. She was 81.

She had been ill for nine months, said family members who were making funeral arrangements late Thursday.

Mrs. Jackson was a rock-and-roll pioneer in a business dominated by men. Like most musicians, she hesitated to define her style.

"Lord, I don't know what my music is. It's just Cordell music," she said in a 1994 interview.

Born in Pontotoc, Miss., Mrs. Jackson got her first guitar when she was 12, ordered by her father out of a mail order catalog for $8.13 a month.

Living in Memphis in the 1950s, Mrs. Jackson began showing up at Sam Phillips's Memphis Recording Service to make recordings for herself.

When two of her Christmas recordings didn't make the cut as records on Phillips's Sun Records label, Mrs. Jackson started her own label and called it Moon Records.

Nashville guitar legend and producer Chet Atkins mastered all of the Memphis record label's music and the records were pressed by RCA Victor. Atkins took on the job after Mrs. Jackson called RCA's Nashville office and Atkins answered the phone.

The agreement ended in 1965 as Beatlemania and the British rock invasion eclipsed rock and roll's early American pioneers.

Mrs. Jackson happened to hear Tav Falco, the frontman of the Memphis punk band Panther Burns, performing one of her songs in the 1980s.

Her first-ever paying gig followed shortly thereafter when Mrs. Jackson, then 62, was paid $50 to play at the Antenna Club on Madison Avenue, the epicenter of the city's punk rock scene.

In 1991, an advertising agency teamed her with Stray Cats guitarist Brian Setzer for a Budweiser beer television commercial in which Mrs. Jackson instructed the '50s revivalist how to properly crunch a guitar chord.

Appearances followed on national television that featured her straightforward personality and music.

Last year, Mrs. Jackson was honored with a brass note on Beale Street. Mrs. Jackson saw the note while she was walking in the entertainment district before a ceremony could be planned to unveil it.

I notice that they waited 10 weeks between his death and printing the obituary. Were they holding off, waiting for a message from the other side?? ;)

Maybe it took him that long to write his own obituary via a ouija board.

In today's technological society, this sort of delay really should be avoidable. Perhaps Microsoft could do the decent thing and include a "Word for Ouija" add-on to their Office suite. All you need to do then is find a ouija board with a USB connection, plug it in to your PC and download your messages from beyond in no time at all.
