BTW, the original group to make Proud Mary a hit was Credence Clearwater Revival, which I really loved, but Tina's version was also very good.

I reckon she was "dealing with him" and she did it beautifully in the end.



I definitely agree. 
Think you mean Roy Orbison
Roy Orbison performs "Oh, Pretty Woman" as the finale of the Black & White Night Concert. Backed by Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, James Burton, Glen D. Hardin, Tom Waits, kd lang, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, JD Souther, T Bone Burnett, Steven Soles, and Jennifer Warnes.



I didn't know Roy Orbison served in the US Army in Germany. The other guy did though.

That doesn't mean I didn't like them.  But it is kind of funny (strange) that they were a Southern band from California.



Nope, the Mason Dixon line didn't encompass California.

But, Southern Band???

Actually toyomotor, I remember Suzie Quatro from way back when she guested on Happy Days. Can't say I'm a huge fan but agree she is talented.

John Fogerty actually was drafted into the Army


It’s pretty simple: “Fortunate Son” is a protest song written by a Vietnam-era veteran in support of the men who served and against the children of privilege who evaded the draft.

I didn't know that.

I wasn't so lucky, I wanted to join, but was under age and my parents wouldn't sign my enlistment papers.

Many of us young people at the time fully supported the troops while at the same time condemning the fact that they were in Viet Nam.

Should they have been? Ultimately, I don't know.

Not really music, but I really liked the Cheech and Chong tapes, and in fact used one of their tracks in my work in the Drug Squad many years ago.

I'm relying on you remembering Cheech and Chong for this.(Remember "Dave? Dave? dave's not here man.")

We approached a suspects front door and I knocked loudly. A voice said,"Whose there man?" I answered, "Hey, it's the pigs man", and he immediately opened the door and I said, "Dig it man, you're busted".

He couldn't see the funny side of it for a while, but then took it all in good fun. He was arrested and charged with possssion of Cannabis, declaring that we wouldn't trick him that easy next time.

Nope, "Jean Klein was born in Berlin and spent his childhood in Brno and Prague. He studied musicology and medicine in Vienna and Berlin, becoming a physician. Having left Germany in 1933 for France, he secretly worked with the French Resistance in the Second World War. After the war, Klein again left for India to study Yoga and Advaita Vedanta for three years. During those three years he met a spiritual teacher of Advaita, Pandit Veeraraghavachar Rao, a scholar at the Sanskrit College in Bangalore, and returned to the West to become a spiritual teacher himself. He died in 1998 in Santa Barbara, California.[2] Several of his disciples, including Francis Lucille, went on to become spiritual teachers themselves." -Wiki

Yea I remember. How about Eddie Torres- ET the Extra Testicle?
Marijuana is not legal in Tasmania now is it? It's legal in my state and between drivers texting and talking on the phone we know have knuckleheads smoking bongs while driving! Not even discreetly puffing on a joint these idiots are using two hands to smoke, no brains to drive. I call the 5-O and report them.

Re Jean Klein-I was being facetious.

No, Cannabis use is not legal in Tasmania yet, but very soon medicinal cannabis use will be. Apparently it has curative powers for some ailments, and the cannabis will be low in THC.

As for driving offences, hoons and using a mobile while driving are the current hates at the moment. The hoons (idiots who do burn outs and street races) cars should, imo, be impounded and crushed before their eyes. They then should be disqualified from holding a drivers license or owning a motor vehicle for 12 months.

Draconian, absolutely, but better that than another Sarah Paino. (I'll tell you more about her in a PM, as we're going off topic here.)

How do you copy UTube links like the one above, to forum posts. I've tried several times, and failed.

Ok sure, 

so when you are at Youtube on your selected video, 
you can pause video if you want to, but you don't have to
right click on the screen.
you will get an option to "Copy video URL"   right click on "Copy video URL" you will see a link flash like a chain link.
Then go back to your message screen at WH and click paste, this is your URL from the video in your message;
https://youtu.be/b1zgmM2lalo


Now, add TUBE in brackets [ ] before link. (If I add TUBE in the brackets here, you will only see a fuzzy video that won't play.)

Then add [/TUBE] after the link.
Cut all that, it is the Youtube file name  

Go to the film strip icon between picture and special characters. 

Copy link with added brackets that you just cut  

in the space provided for "Youtube file name" click OK

Now here is what messes us up, you end up with double TUBE brackets when you go back to message box 
" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>

Thumbs Up



Just delete one from each side. Go to Preview and you will see the video is copied.

Thank you for that.

Which bridge did Billy Joe McAllister jump from?

And no Googling!

Apparently the song sparked some controversy, with people believing that the lyrics related to an actual event and asking;
1. What did he throw from the bridge, was it a baby?

2. Why did he commit suicide? Was it because of what he had just done?

No one has any idea. And, even more mysteriously, after having a hit with Ode to Billy Joe, Bobby Gentry retired from the music industry almost immediately, refusing interviews, and, basically was never heard of again.

Sounds like a secret life to me.

Obviously written for a male singer, but Joan Baez does the song justice more than anyone else, not that I've hear many other versions.

I like most of her songs, especially of the protest era.

Being old can be sad. I've come to the realisation that I am of the generation whose musicians sang songs, the words of which could be heard comfortably and understood.
