How TV Influenced my life, music, romance.

I wrote that note probably a month or two before pulling it out of my book to sit down and write about it.

When I wrote the note I was thinking about the influence television had on me.  For instance, without the Beatles being on the Ed Sullivan Show would music had been such a huge influence in my life?  Probably so but then the question would be what type of music?

The Beatles took me down the road to rock and roll.

What if my early big influential act would have been Hank Williams?  How would that have shaped my musical and life journey?

Through the years I discovered and still discover new influences from all genres and eras but the Beatles were the ones who started me down this path. Continue reading

Saint Paul, Gestalt, and The Beatles.

Saint Paul, Gestalt, and The Beatles.

1 Corinthians 12:14-20

For the body does not consist of one member but of many.  If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell?  But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be?  As it is, there are many parts, yet one body.

In previous posts I wrote about Paul addressing peer pressure and being a team builder, how he understood the concept of team.

In these verses I found another example of Paul’s understanding of team.  I found another example of how he understood that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.  Paul writes about how each member of the team is important to that team.

Just like a good band. Continue reading

Paul McCartney – Back In The USSR

Paul McCartney – Back In The USSR

I wrote the other day about the 30 CD’s my wife found at a yard sale for $5.00.

In this batch of CD’s there was a Paul McCartney album I never knew existed.

Like just about everyone else who was a kid in the early sixties and became a teenager during the later part of that decade, I was a huge Beatles fan.

As a drummer I have been and still am a huge fan of Paul McCartney’s bass playing not to mention his singing and songwriting.  Although Beatles fans liked all the Beatles you always seemed to have two camps the Lennon camp and the McCartney camp.  I was in the McCartney camp.

Anytime I come across some of McCartney’s work that I am not already familiar with I give it a listen. Continue reading
