Christal Blue

People always ask me where "Christal Blue" came from.  The short answer is: my father is a sailor who digs Tommy James.  Yes, as in the song Crystal Blue Persuasion.  The "persuasive" part is up for interpretation.  I would love to persuade you to check in here from time to time.  You'll find tid bits about my favorite artists, stories I think you'll find interesting, and (when the mood strikes) my humble opinions.  
Comment all you want, and just remember...flattery will get you everywhere.

Today would have been John Lennon's 73rd Birthday.  I bet he's being serenaded at that big rock concert in the sky.  Happy Birthday John.  We still miss you every day.

I don't know about you, but I played my "Once Bitten..." cassette until I wore it out.  That was Lorne on bass for Rock Me and so many other great songs from the first three Great White albums.  No official word on cause of death other than he was battling demons for a long time.  Such a shame.  I'm going to crank up Rock Me in his honor...throw up some metal and join me, won't you?  m/

Great White pay tribute to late bassist Black

And I whole heartedly agree with Rollin Stone when they say it's one of the best albums of all time.
