    When Nick got burned out on the LA music scene, he moved to Minneapolis just to do a lifestyle change. He ended up working with me in the pro audio business for a couple of years. We sold equipment, design and installation services to local and national musicians, corporations, schools, churches, etc. Nick is one of the nicest people that I met in the music business. He was not at all wrapped up in himself, very humble and funny. Overall very enjoyable to work with and get to know. I used to take him flying occassionally in a small 4 seat airplane (Cessna 172) and he was like a kid in a candy store. He had been in Lear jets while touring, but rarely if ever in a very small, slow airplane. I especially remember his 40th birthday, when his parents came to visit. He made sure that they came into the office to see his desk. This was his first non performing job and he was very proud of what he was doing. He took off for LA again a few years later and put this band together. I gave him a call about 2 years or so ago and haven't spoken to him since. I guess we are both just too busy now. I need to get out and see his band one of these years.

    Mellow and get a sense of humor, thats the whole point of it!!!

    There have been songs for years that have been misheard by people. I sited the well known "The Ants are my friends, their blowing in the wind" for "The Answer My Friends, Is Blowing in the Wind", the Hendricks song and one I was guilty of the Elvis Costello "Allison". Quite clear the post was about misheard lyrics

    If you weren't aware of this very well known reality, Maybe you want to enquire about something you disagree with or don't understand before you insult someone. :soapbox:

    If you want any more proof, check this out!!!

    Didn't your teachers or parents ever teach you "It is better to be quiet and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt" :shrug:

    OK...misunderstood lyrics I can live with.
    "Louie, Louie" being one of the most misunderstood songs of all time.

    BUT:

    You still mispelled Jimi's name AGAIN. That's a down right insult. Once I can understand but twice...That just ain't right.:rolleyes:
    Jimi was a legend. Every rock star in Europe went to see his shows. He was so ahead of his time.
    Please don't dis him again. :shrug:
    THIS is how to spell his name.
    Plus a little info on one of my all time guitar heros. :)

    Hey Jim,

    There have been proposals in our state legislature to make "Louie, Louie" our state song. This might be appropriate since I rarely understand what our state reps are doing either! :)

    This time of year, you will find that many high school bands are practicing this tune as a recessional for graduation.

    You know what, I really don't care. I don't consider Jimmy a legend, so I don't put ANY effort into making sure I spell his name exactly right. As there are plenty of names of musicians I don't spell right. If they put a Musician Spell Check in the system then I will stop mis-spelling those names. I spelt his name close enough so that everyone knew who I was talking about and that was all I cared about.

    And on the interent, yelling about mis-spelling is not a very productive use of time. As 1/4 the words written have some errors.

    I think Billy Joel is a Genius, I think Eric Clapton is a Genius, I think Jack Bruce is a Genius, yet I really don't care one iota if your mis-spell their names as long as everyone in the end knows what you are talking about!!! :rolleyes:

    This really burns me! Back in 1981 they announced their "Farewell Tour" and I went and saw them in Seattle. What a joke. These guys can't play live for SH*T. They need to pack it up and retire.

    Don't get me wrong, I have been a Stones fan ever since "Satisfaction", I just think they have outlived their useful productive life.
