Saw a photo of Van Halen recently. His hair has gone gray. Kinda reminded me how old I really am now.
However, yeah...ain't nothing like getting yourself looking good to get the -ex's upset. Revenge is mighty sweet sometimes...hee, hee!

Any bets on how long it will take her to put the pounds back on? Not that I mind, I didn't think she looked bad at all at her previous weight, though it probably wasn't healthy.

What is it that all the men seem to love Valerie Bertinelli? She's adorable, but so are so many other stars. She must have that something extra. I know my -ex was crazy about her...and Diana Ross. He was an equal opportunity cheater, anyway...ha!
Good things those old rockers have lots of money, because I would think waking up to those faces....well, ugh. Personally, my gag reflex just isn't that high. They're downright frighteningly ugly now. If that's what drugs and booze does, I'm glad I don't do either.

I think that at least in some part, it is what getting old does. It is hard for rock stars pushing 70 to look young and attractive everytime the papparazi unexpectedly pushes a camera in their faces.

I know that if someone snapped my photo before coffee in the morning, or while working hard in the garden on a hot summer day, the result would not be something I'd want on the front page of the paper.

Cigarette smoking contributes to premature aging.

But I'm sure they're still kids on the inside!

I think it's interesting to watch the second generation trying to stake out their own turf-- Dweezil Zappa, Wolfgang Van Halen, Jason Bonham, and even, I suppose, Julian Lennon...

Saw Dweezil at a "Zappa Plays Zappa" show a couple of years ago. He doesn't quite have Frank's sense of humor, but he and the band definitely had the chops.

Another second generationer is Derek Trucks, son of Allman Brothers drummer Butch. Excellent player, though not a big star. I don't think that genre has a place in today's world...

For sure that. Also, they are quite thin. Many older people have a bit more wrinkle smoothing padding on their faces.

Not a star? I am usually in agreement with your musical statements, but not this time. He's been an Allman, got his own band playing big venues, played with Clapton at the Crossroads Guitar Festival, married Susan Tedeschi , and was rated one of the top 3 New Guitar Gods by Rolling Stone. If you are talking about number one pop hit duets with Britney I'll agree, but Jimi himself only had one single ever make it into the top 20 on Billboard. And I think he's Butch's nephew.

She's got that "all-American-girl-next-door" thing like Sally Field. They just seem to stay adorable all their lives.

Well, the record labels and Madison Ave are going dooowwwwnnnnn! They can't deal with the new world of online music. They'll be screaming "DRM" and "RIAA" as they go to Congress for a bailout. Maybe they can merge with GM and Citi in a grand bankruptcy corporation.

This is a 90 to 100 year old acoustic delta blues style, but the acoustic guitar is replaced by an electric.

It is good enough, but who is the market for this kind of music? Mostly old guys who enjoyed the acoutic blues revival of the 70s. Even I don't like to listen to it. If I want electric blues, I want Muddy Waters or Buddy Guy or Howling Wolf or at least something with some pop to it. Or Lightning Hopkins which is sheer poetry.

Allman Brothers were a terrific band, but basically they fit the stoner culture of the time. Too often when white guys play blues they take a harmonically and structurally uninteresting form that was kept interesting by driving rhythms when played by Black bands, and remove the rhythm.

Yawn.

Ha
