RIP Michael Nesmith.........a big part of the early "country-rock" era in LA.

.........it was his skit "Elephant Parts" where a plea is made......."Send some money to the foundation for the Tragically Hip.".........one of two possible ideas where Canada's Tragically Hip got their name from.

I remember hearing this, maybe 40+ years ago. Micheal Nesmith was the inventor of music videos via MTV. I remember at the time thinking it will never take off. Who would want to watch a video when you can hear it on the radio, or see them thanks to Dick Clark. ....If I only bought shares :cry:

When I was in grade five, Ralph Tavares was putting out hit songs, rest in peace.

If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

Former Toronto Mayor Mel Lastman has died. He was 88.

Lastman died at his home Saturday afternoon, CTV News learned.

Known for his flamboyance and outspokenness, Lastman served for six years as the first mayor of 'megacity' -- the name given to Toronto after the amalgamation of six municipalities in 1998.

Before that, he was the mayor of the then municipality of North York for more than two decades, from 1973 to 1997.

I remember a stupid comment made by Lastman:
“Mel Lastman” wrote:“What the hell do I want to go to a place like Mombasa?… I just see myself in a pot of boiling water with all these natives dancing around me.”[\quote]

Vicente Fernández will be remembered "Para Siempre."

On Sunday, the Grammy-winning mariachi legend died, four months after suffering from a fall that had him on a ventilator in the ICU, according to a post on his Instagram page.

"It was an honor and a great pride to share with everyone his great musical career. He gave everything to his audience," read the post, translated to English.

"Thank you for continuing to applaud, thank you for continuing to sing," the post concluded.
