I'm fond of saying something about "how I wish I would have been around for such&such band (usually PF and the Doors) - and the thought crossed my mind just now that I'm glad I wasn't around before music was "integrated."  I'm happy that Bo Diddley helped influence the artists that would break that color-wall down (specifically Elvis) if even that a white musician sounded black; seems to me that getting people of all types listening to the same music only helped build our nation culturally. 

I'm also a big fan of the other early RnR artists, Buddy Holly FOR SURE, Little Richard, etc. etc.  In fact, I don't think I've heard "That'll be the day" or Buddy's version of "Rave On" on RP.  I guess I should be happy with the few we do get, eh? 

PEACE & Long Live RP!!

Humm, what do I want my presidents to look like, be, embody?  Honesty, dignity, not bent on larceny, a good parent, A respecter of women, men and children. An administration that treats people equally (including not giving away everything to the 1%.).   Having the foresight to care about the future, a steward of the earth, a respecter of other nations, cautious about the actions of our adversaries. And I think Obama looks like someone who has those qualities.  More than the current occupant of the WH.

 

Um, I think you read into my lyrical observation a bit further than its intent...

"You can't judge the daughter by looking at the mother"

In my experience, and I'm 64 yrs old, I would tend to disagree with this, even though it may fit into the lyrics :^ / Chances are, it's more true than not.

As a graphic designer, I'd like to disagree. 

(But those lyrics are brilliant - can't judge a right by looking at a wrong!)

That title... That's a repeating comment I make to my wife about books I rent by the library. She likes or dislikes books by looking at the cover.
