I had to edit this post because I got my bands crossed and had them in the wrong category. I have only highlighted The Monkees as the band I hate I missed for a specific reason. Funny, but it is somewhat related to your comment so stay tuned.

(I am setting it up for a future post. Watch out for little hints and connections between some of my posts. I am going to embed a little conceptuality into The Venting Blog. )

I love Janis too. And I adore Patty Loveless! She can wail!

You partied with Skynyrd? Can I be your groupie?

I have met Patty Loveless in person , she is a very down to earth person, I use to work at our local venue here and have had drinks and dinner with many celbs , the only one that was too weird and stuck on himself was Prince,, Alice Cooper was a real howl and gives a great party.

ROFLMAO expat! Yes by gawd, you are not the girl in the pic. That will have to remain an inside joke between us I suppose.
A pony was giving a speach in a lecture hall. A man in the back told him to speak up because he couldn't hear.
The pony replied: "You'll have to excuse me, I'm a little horse".

Anyway, about that pic. Is that your maid? And does she travel?

hey thanks for coming back to this old post candysoveryverysentimental! I have heard about Barry Manilow shows, but I am still laughing anyway. I love him for all the encouragement he has given to other artists. Particularly Bette Midler.
