A Bit Spooky?


The Comments on the post below note that this is the week of tragic anniversaries in the world of rock & roll – the deaths of John Lennon on Monday, Otis Redding on Wednesday and Sam Cooke on Thursday. I’m not sure whether this is a case of ‘synchronicity’ or not. Maybe there are others?

At Phil’s suggestion, we’ll have some Otis Blue tomorrow. Today, I’m off to London with MRA. There will be some art involved but I suspect there may be shopping too.

  1. There is the first part of a series about Sam Cooke on Radio 2 at 10 tonight. Expect it will be on I Player as well

  2. O.K. boss…………….A bit of Otis on the ‘memorial playlist’ for Wednesday……………….. well good !!!!!!
    Lets maybe add something like ‘Cripple Creek’ as a dedication to Rick Danko (the band) , who passed on the 10th Dec 1999……………..Another fine tune I think…………….

  3. Mmmh It actually happens to be the wife’s birthday Dec 10th
