Pete Townshend/Roger Daltrey w/Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nile, Billy Idol – Won’t Get Fooled Again
The Boss joined the Who on stage recently…
Bruce Springsteen joined The Who for a couple of classics live this week.
Springsteen presented the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award for charity to Pete Townshend on Thursday (May 28, 2015) during a MusiCares benefit concert in New York City.
Bruce told the audience that he was ‘a pimply faced teenager’ when he first saw The Who in 1967. He added that ‘The Who were young pimply-faced teenagers’ as well.
Even back then Pete Townshend did his signature guitar smash at the show. ‘All I knew, for some reason, this music and the demolishing of all these perfectly fine instruments filled me with incredible joy and I never looked back,’ Springsteen said.
He called Townshend ‘the greatest rhythm guitarist of all time’.
Working ten hours tonite, be nice to one another…!
C&L’s Late Nite Music Club With Space ::posted Mon, 01 Jun 2015 03:00:01 +0000:: http://ift.tt/1LVTtMZ
This music comes from a different time. A time when analog synthesizers roamed the earth without opposition. A time when men put on helmets and shiny gold jumpsuits before going out on stage to play a set. You might accuse me of sounding nostalgic about this time, but I wasn’t even born yet, so that would be out of the realm of possibility. However, I still really would have liked to see this act live. They still play shows, but, from what I’ve seen, it appears that the days of gold jumpsuits are over, which is a bummer. Doesn’t mean I wouldn’t go to a show, though.
What are you listening to tonight?
It’s Not Too Late: Call Your Senators on Patriot Act/NSA Surveillance! ::posted Mon, 01 Jun 2015 02:41:55 +0000:: http://ift.tt/1GPSqyG
As we mentioned earlier in the week, the Patriot Act’s Section 215 expires tonight. This is the section which the Obama Administration has been using as the pretext for NSA telephone bulk surveillance of ordinary Americans.
The great news is, Section 215 will be expiring tonight, as the Senate didn’t vote. The less great news is that the vote for the extension, dubbed the USA Freedom Act, has only been delayed briefly, and could still happen as soon as Tuesday. The Senate did manage to vote to limit debate on the bill too, meaning filibusters won’t be able to stop it.
That means for those of you who didn’t call your Senators yet, and even those who did, there’s still time to call them some more and emphasize your extreme opposition to the USA Freedom Act and any other efforts to extend the Patriot Act.
A vote is unavoidable, but that doesn’t mean the vote will go the way of the pro-surveillance crowd. We can still make a difference if we can convince enough Senators to vote against it.
You can find your Senator’s contact information here, and below is a list of the 10 most important Senators to focus on, along with their contact information. Others should be contacted as well, of course, to emphasize how much we, the American public, oppose the surveillance state.

By Chris Hedges
The economist and philosopher foresaw that capitalism had built within it the seeds of its own destruction, that the greed of a tiny elite would eventually bring down the system. The final stages that he predicted are visible all around us now.
