The Ultimate Y2K Glitch…. 1632 In the year 1632 in northern Germany a reasonable person might conclude that things couldn't get much worse. There was no food. Disease was rampant. For over a decade religious war had ravaged the land and the people. Catholic and Protestant armies marched and countermarched across the northern plains, laying waste the cities and slaughtering everywhere. In many rural areas population plummeted toward zero. Only the aristocrats remained relatively unscathed; for the peasants, death was a mercy. 2000 Things are going OK in Grantville, West Virginia. The mines are working, the buck are plentiful (it's deer season) and everybody attending the wedding of Mike Stearn's sister (including the entire membership of the local chapter of the United Mine Workers of America, which Mike leads) is having a good time. THEN, EVERYTHING CHANGED…. When the dust settles, Mike leads a small group of armed miners to find out what's going on. Out past the edge of town Grantville's asphalt road is cut, as with a sword. On the other side, a scene out of Hell; a man nailed to a farmhouse door, his wife and daughter Iying screaming in muck at the center of a ring of attentive men in steel vests. Faced with this, Mike and his friends don't have to ask who to shoot. At that moment Freedom and Justice, American style, are introduced to the middle of The Thirty Years War.

WOULD THEY DESTROY EARTH IN ORDER TO SAVE ITConquered by the Jao twenty years ago, the Earth is shackled under alien tyranny-and threatened by the even more dangerous Ekhat, who are sending a genocidal extermination fleet to the solar system. Humanity's only chance rests with an unusual pair of allies: a young Jao prince, newly arrived to Terra to assume his duties, and a young human woman brought up amongst the Jao occupiers.But both are under pressure from the opposing forces-a cruel Jao viceroy on one side, determined to drown all opposition in blood; a reckless human resistance on the other, perfectly prepared to shed it. Added to the mix is the fact that only by adopting some portions of human technology and using human sepoy troops can the haughty Jao hope to defeat the oncoming Ekhat attack-and then only by fighting the battle within the Sun itself.At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

It's a warm summer's Saturday night, July 19, 2003 in Liverpool England and the eager audience patiently waits. In celebration of John Mayall's 70th birthday and for the benefit of UNICEF's fight against child exploitation, The Bluesbreakers (Tom Canning, Hank Van Sickle, Jo Yuele and Buddy Whittington) kick off with "Jacksboro Highway." After a few more numbers the place erupts as John Mayall appears to a standing ovation. The Godfather of British Blues has arrived and straight away he's playing fantastic harmonica and keyboards. Then (and after 38 years since they first played together) the "friends" and soul mates are reunited to a tumultuous reception as Eric Clapton appears on stage. Joining them is Mick Taylor and British Blues pioneer, Chris Barberas as they blast through nearly 21/2 hours of stunning blues. From blues standards to classics from the "Beano" album and on to contemporary Bluesbreakers material, an ecstatic Liverpool crowd laps up one of the finest nights of blues this millennium.

While this generation of Hip-Hoppers may not care much for the OG’s of the game like De La Soul, it’s good to see some people still appreciate what the 90’s group brings to the table. Even if said people are from across the pond.

Today London-based artist Tom Misch enlisted the talents of De La Soul for his visuals to “It Runs Through Me” where the singer recreates a 70’s styled studio while Posdunos made his appearance on the old school tube. Tube is old school slang for TV, millennials.

Back in the states Eric Bellinger takes his talents to the beach where he sings his heart out about a troubled relationship in his clip to “By Now.”

Publisher: Eric Asher

Seller: Smashwords


This collection includes Days Gone Bad, Wolves and the River of Stone, and Winter's Demon! That's over 800 pages of Damian's dark, gritty, and occasionally hilarious urban fantasy adventures. Days Gone Bad (Book 1) My name is Damian Valdis Vesik. I am a necromancer, an ability feared and hated as much as the powers my master and I set ourselves against. We've vanquished many evils, but now something is releasing an old darkness, forcing us to hunt an enemy beyond anything I’ve faced before. I was already busy enough with vampires, fairies, witches, Watchers, weddings, and … damn, I need a vacation. Wolves and the River of Stone (Book 2) Philip, Zola’s boyfriend from one hundred and fifty years ago, is not nearly as dead as we thought. I really wish he was. Not only has he kidnapped Zola, but he’s raising an army to scour humanity from the earth. Hopefully the local werewolf pack will help. What could possibly go wrong? Winter's Demon (Book 3) Some things can never be undone. The horrors I've defeated—or even caused—with my own hands … they are nothing compared to what’s coming. Philip Pinkerton has brought his madness upon my family, my own blood. His army of necromancers is on the move, harbingers of a great darkness. I fear the war has begun … and damn, I don't get paid enough for this.

Google’s Eric Schmidt Talks Tech at Tory Burch

Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt is thinking about fashion, being cool and how artificial intelligence can help brands connect the two.
The billionaire, who’s on Tory Burch’s advisory board and was front-row at the designer’s spring show Tuesday, told WWD that computers are getting closer to helping fashion make better decisions.
“What is the trend in fashion? More and more product, it’s more and more confusing with faster product cycles,” Schmidt said before the show. “Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a solution which said, ‘Well, we’ve sort of modeled this and this is where things are going and this is the emergent stuff.’ And so it would make sense. It would make you smarter, it wouldn’t replace you.”
Schmidt, who has also invested in retail tech and mobile commerce, imagined computers with artificial intelligence being able to take a picture of a dress and tell a brand whether it was going to be cool or not.
“There’s a science around cool,” he said. “And the science is that cool people move and then everyone else moves. If you could model that and if you could figure that out, that would help you because then you’d have a jump and you’d say, ‘I

Eric Clapton was already an acknowledged master of the electric guitar in January 1992 when he traded his signature Stratocaster for an acoustic Martin to record Unplugged. The live album captured the legendary guitarist, backed by a small band, performing acoustic versions of his own songs and several blues standards. The original program features 15 performances, with Clapton reinterpreted songs from his rich catalog, including "Layla" – completely reimagined as a shuffle – from his time with Derek and the Dominos, "Running On Faith" and "Old Love" from 1989's Journeyman, and the hit single "Tears In Heaven," a song he wrote after the passing of his young son Conor the previous year. Much of the album showcases blues songs Clapton grew up listening to, like Bo Diddley's "Before You Accuse Me." Big Bill Broonzy's "Hey Hey," Leadbelly's "Alberta" and Robert Johnson's "Malted Milk."This version of the program contains a newly restored version of the original broadcast, which aired August 25, 1992 on MTV.

It's a warm summer's Saturday night, July 19, 2003 in Liverpool England and the eager audience patiently waits. In celebration of John Mayall's 70th birthday and for the benefit of UNICEF's fight against child exploitation, The Bluesbreakers (Tom Canning, Hank Van Sickle, Jo Yuele and Buddy Whittington) kick off with "Jacksboro Highway." After a few more numbers the place erupts as John Mayall appears to a standing ovation. The Godfather of British Blues has arrived and straight away he's playing fantastic harmonica and keyboards. Then (and after 38 years since they first played together) the "friends" and soul mates are reunited to a tumultuous reception as Eric Clapton appears on stage. Joining them is Mick Taylor and British Blues pioneer, Chris Barberas as they blast through nearly 2 1/2 hours of stunning blues. From blues standards to classics from the "Beano" album and on to contemporary Bluesbreakers material, an ecstatic Liverpool crowd laps up one of the finest nights of blues this millennium.

The Blue Portal is an extract from the beginning of Eric Brown's upcoming novel The Kings of Eternity, due to be released April 2011. 1999, on the threshold of a new millennium, the novelist Daniel Langham lives a reclusive life on an idyllic Greek island, hiding away from humanity and the events of the past.

Writers Jonathon Langham and Edward Vaughan are summoned from London by their editor friend Jasper Carnegie to help investigate strange goings on in Hopton Wood.

What they become, and their link to the novelist of the future, is the subject of Eric Brown's most ambitious novel to date. Almost ten years in the writing, The Kings of Eternity is a novel of vast scope and depth, full of the staple tropes of the genre and yet imbued with humanity and characters you'll come to love.

BARENAKED LADIES’ “DUCT TAPE HEART” EXCLUSIVE

2015-05-18-1431984562-9693268-studio1844retouchedCB.jpg

According to the Barenaked Ladies gang…

“‘Duct Tape Heart,’ one of the tracks from the Barenaked Ladies’ forthcoming album Silverball–out June 2nd–is an Ed Robertson and Kevin Griffin (Better Than Ezra) collaboration. ‘I love the imagery of a MacGyvered heart–a heart that is taped back up, but by virtue of being duct-taped back up, it’s rock-solid,’ Ed notes, no pun intended.

In Robertson’s view, Silverball has already attained a lofty status in the band’s canon, for reasons that are fundamental and enduring. ‘I think the strength of this record is the band playing together,’ he says. ‘We’re pushing in new directions–as always, I think–but it’s still unmistakably these four guys playing together, and that’s what I’m most proud of. I put the record on and it doesn’t sound like anything we’ve ever done before, and yet it is unmistakably the new Barenaked Ladies record. We made it quickly and effortlessly, and I think it’s a great showcase of what this band is capable of.”

photo credit: JUCO

According to Eric Hutchinson…

“I had already made a video for ‘Forever’ when John [Danovic] emailed me this idea he had. It was this cool little demo video he made in his car. Stripped down but he totally got the visuals across. I loved it instantly and I had to see it made! The actual video he made is even cooler. This video captures all the emotions I felt when I wrote the song. The ups and downs of love and waiting.”

The video’s director, Jon Danovic, adds…

The inspiration for the video came from the lyric, “Tell me how you know nothing lasts forever.” There’s a desperate optimism that attracted me to the song, I tried to balance that hope and melancholy with the visual.”

According to Bean…

“I wrote ‘Wildfire’ about being carefree and not allowing others to bring you down, which is summed up in the lyrics. ‘Rising like a phoenix, I’ll make you see. I’ll burn even higher, Burn even higher. I’m a Wildfire.’ ‘Wildfire’ is much more mature than my other songs…it really reflects my personality and artistry. It’s an anthem for the vagabonds, the wanderers, and the hippies of now.”

“Wildfire” is the free download of the week on iTunes!

A Conversation with David Coverdale

Mike Ragogna: David, sir, let’s talk about all things Purple.

David Coverdale: Oh, Mikey Rags, what a treat! Two of my favorite elements in my life, Mike Ragogna and HuffPost.

MR: Then you’re either in for a treat or a wild disappointment.

DC: That depends on what you think of the f**king record, probably!

MR: [laughs] It’s hard to be objective because of our friendship, but I honestly think the record is excellent. And furthermore, I believe The Purple Album is very significant in the DC cannon because it brings your career full circle. It’s almost like after all your experience in making music–being as creative a person as you’ve been all these years–you’re looking back and respectfully treating your roots. I’ll go further. I believe this revisit of your Deep Purple material brings out musical elements of the material that you’re only now hearing at this point in your life. Conjecture, of course, but pretty close, right?

DC: That’s about it, thank you! It was nice talking with you! [laughs]

MR: [laughs] David, actually, why did The Purple Album come out now, and why not earlier in your career?

DC: It’s a very layered why, but the whole idea was birthed from tragedy. You are right when you say we’ve come full circle because that’s actually what I’ve been saying while I was mixing the album with Michael McIntyre. It was a feeling of completion of a particular journey. I think the next chapter of my life is going to be somewhat different. Still involved with music, that’s my primary vehicle for expression, but maybe not the big Tarzan, animal skin, swinging through the trees and beating my chest stuff.

MR: Well, then this interview is absolutely over! Take care, be good.

DC: [laughs] No, I’m still swinging from light truss to light truss unfortunately. It’s so very funny, Michael, from the very beginning, even before Purple, I’ve always challenged myself as a vocalist, as an athlete, as a student, and of course that was amplified by joining Purple. I wrote like four or six versions of the song “Burn” as the new boy, just wanting to please. Of course, they chose the lyric. But I’ve always challenged myself and continue to this day, but this challenge has become a little more challenging as age rears its questionable head.

Purple was literally birthed from tragedy. In 2012, I received a call from a representative of my beautiful friend and former colleague Jon Lord, who was just an amazing character in my life, a mentor, he introduced charm and grace to a working class kid from Heathcliff-land, Wuthering Heights. Jon had been diagnosed with cancer, which was horrifying, and the next thing was, “He’s determined to beat it. On his recovery, would you be up for doing some kind of Purple project?” I went, “Absolutely, you tell him I’m there for him.” The greatest sadness, of course, we lost Jon. But the loss and the grieving led me to open dialog with Ritchie Blackmore after over thirty years.

Really, there was no project on my agenda, on my radar; none whatsoever. For me, to stand between Ritchie and Jon, it was the Colossi of Rhodes. I was able to work with Glenn Hughes and Jon Lord and Ian Paice; I worked with those guys other than Glenn in early Whitesnake. Sadly, the last time I saw Ritchie, which was over thirty years ago, we had a physical confrontation which was very unpleasant and unsavory for both of us. An unpleasant rivalry between Whitesnake and Rainbow persisted for many years until Whitesnake became so ridiculously successful and sold so many records it wasn’t even a consideration.

But for two reasons, I wanted to speak to Ritchie. One was to commiserate on the loss of Jon and the other was to sincerely thank him for being part of a decision that gave me the opportunity to front one of the biggest bands in the rock ‘n’ roll world. I had no preperception of global success. I’d seen Deep Purple on a couple Top Of The Pops, I’d seen a little bit of one of their shows in the north of England where I lived. I knew they were big in England but that’s all I knew. I had no perception whatsoever off the kind of global success they were embracing. So to give this unknown, untried, untested vocalist from the north of England this incredible, indescribable opportunity to front and to create songs with Ritchie and Tommy Bolin was the Willy Wonka golden ticket. They started me on a journey that may be completed at the end of this forthcoming world tour.

MR: And your versions of these Deep Purple songs aren’t clones but evolved versions of the originals. Was this a sort of resolution, maybe what you always wanted to do with these songs?

DC: Oh, very much so. My primary thing when I heard “Burn” was, “Christ, I was naive. Jesus, I was young. Buddha, I was innocent.” [laughs] I was literally flying by the seat of my pants. The cliché would be “thrown in the deep end to sink or swim.” Fortunately, I swam. I actually used one of the lyrics from an initial version forty years ago on my last studio album, Forever More. But what was really fantastic for me, reconnecting with these songs after reconnecting positively with Ritchie Blackmore was, “Jesus, what a great band!” It tends to diminish over the decades when you’re focused and moving around. I’m not a nostalgia guy, I’m a, “Now and moving forward, what are we doing next,” kind of guy. The Lewis and Clarke of rock. “Okay, this f**king avenue’s closed, let’s hack our way through this one,” determined to find a new way to deliver music from A to Z in these very, very new times.

What I was astonished by was the musicality, how the songs stood up, even the production values were pretty happening for that time. It reconnected me with fortunately more positive memories than negative ones. For instance, actually doing The Purple Album sitting next to Reb Beach and Joel Hoekstra firing on all six cylinders on the “Burn” solo and going, “Oh my God, I was sitting next to Ritchie Blackmore over forty years ago in The Rolling Stones truck recording the original solo. It was moments like that. Tommy Bolin and I writing “Love Child” after hanging out with Bob Marley & The Wailers. We totally loved reggae. I loved it since it was ska and bluebeat. There was a large Jamaican populace in the north of England close to where I lived. I loved that stuff. So the original version of the song called “Love Child” was literally reggae. [Sings “Love Child” to a reggae beat] At the end of it, Tommy and I looked at each other and said, “F**k it, Purple ain’t gonna buy that.” So we made it significantly more butch, but on the Come Taste The Band album there are a couple little inflections of reggae that really I don’t think anybody picked up on other than Tommy and I.

These things were super little reconnecting dots that I had just let go of years ago. It was fabulous in so many ways, being able to write a small elegy to Jon in the middle of a song called “Sail Away.” I digress somewhat because the conversations with Ritchie Blackmore took place in 2012 going deep into 2013 while I was on Whitesnake’s world tour “Year Of The Snake.” He asked me to speak to his manager, who then asked me if I could keep a secret. I said, “Of course not, I’m a f**king singer!” She said, “Would you be interested in doing a project with Ritchie?” Primarily, I thought, “Hmm, Blackmore/Coverdale; we could embrace the music of Purple and Rainbow and Whitesnake, it could be an interesting ticket.”

Then the question was would you choose Roger or Glenn. I love Roger Glover, I worked with him, he produced two solo albums for me a lifetime ago, but Glenn Hughes is my soul brother. We communicate pretty much every day. At the time I dug out these old projects. This wasn’t even on my radar, Michael. So literally I dug out the Burn, Stormbringer and Come Taste The Band albums and thought, “Eh, he’s not going to want to do anything from Come Taste The Band, of course. Hang on a second, he’s going to want me to do ‘Smoke On The F**king Water.'” But I was digging into them and going, “I just hope he’s up for giving the house of Purple a fresh coat of paint and maybe moving the furniture around a little bit.” What my words were, once I actually got into the studio with Whitesnake was, “Snake ’em up a bit,” said with the benefit of forty years of experience in survival in a very challenging industry.

So I was starting to work on this while discussing things with Ritchie and his manager. The unplugged version of “Sail Away,” which I thought would be a wonderful transition, maybe even a duet, with Ritchie’s lovely wife Candace. They have a beautiful Renaissance-style music group called Blackmore’s Night. So I was pulling all of these strings together to make it some kind of cohesive thing, but you know the more I discussed it with his manager the more I felt, “I can’t share this vision.” At this time in my life, I’m not going to do anything I don’t want to do, Michael, so I very respectfully withdrew from further dialog regarding a project and wished them well in everything they do. Fortunately, we’ve stayed in touch.

Then I was having dinner with Cindy, my wife–I don’t know if you ever met her back in the day–but I was commiserating with her, “Eh, what a bummer, I’ve done all this work and it’s not going to see the light of day.” It was my beloved partner who said, “Well, why don’t you do it under the Whitesnake banner,” and I went, “Oh!” My glass of chardonnay hovered mid-drink as that realization hit me. And with my being a meditative little son of a gun, I meditated on it for a couple of days and then I spoke to Michael McIntyre my co-producer. I’d already been speaking to Doug Aldrich who was still involved with Whitesnake at the time, so I spoke to our fabulous record company Frontiers and of course these guys are fans of rock and total Deep Purple fans, so I said, “How would you feel if Whitesnake did a tribute album?” There’s never been a best of for Mark III or IV! How f**king goofy is that? The best classic rock tunes in the world and the management has never had the thought of, “By all means, let’s keep milking the teets of Mark II, but what about Mark III and Mark IV?” It all kind of came together. My musicians all had the same kind of musical boner, so it came through, all systems go.

MR: So when you entered the band, it also was an education in how to go solo and rev up Whitesnake.

DC: Oh yeah. I’m like Bubba The Love Sponge. I just soak it all in. I was there, I still don’t understand all the technical stuff, but I know if I want to add a little more EQ here, less bass there. I’ve never wanted to be an engineer, but I was there for every session, watching it, discussing it. Just earlier we mentioned the “Burn” solo, which is a breathtaking musical, symphonic solo from not only Jon Lord but also Ritchie Blackmore. It harnesses his classical training for a breathtaking guitar solo. When I was sitting next to Ritchie in the Stones truck in Switzerland, he turned around to Martin Birch, our producer and engineer and said, “Slow the tape down a bit.” I’m sitting there going, “Huh?” But suddenly “Burn” starts playing [mimics slow track], I have no f**king idea, but then Ritchie’s at the top of his neck playing along with this, pre-click track stuff, playing that Bach sequence. Then he said, “Oh, play it back at normal speed,” and he plays it back and it’s this astonishing, [mimics solo] mandolin kind of thing. He said, “What do you think?” and I said, “It sounds a bit like a balalaika!” He said, “Play it back. He’s f**king right. Take it off.” I thought, “Oh my God, I’m going to be fired.”

That was my huge learning lesson. If somebody asks you, tell the f**king truth. In any given situation, tell the truth because it’ll pay off. Ritchie and I wrote most of the material together, and then the band of course put their astonishing identity on, which is what really made Deep Purple, but I wrote a lot of stuff with Ritchie and that actually made our work easier. I thought, “Thank God I have an opinion because I’m from Yorkshire,” and we’ve got an opinion about every f**king thing.

MR: [laughs] You were talking about always telling the truth earlier. It seems like that’s a major component of your work.

DC: I’ve always loved music, and my beloved aunt who I lost at the same time as Jon Lord was fourteen, spending all of her pocket money on Little Richard and early Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry and I’m this six or seven year old going, “Oh my god, this is fucking unbelievable.” I still can’t articulate what pulled me in about Hendrix, what made Hendrix my muse. He’s this guy harnessing blues and soul and exciting guitar and image and blues lyrics and extraterrestrial cosmic shit. He’s everything. Hendrix just harnessed everything that I love. There are no mistakes. I go to school one day and the music teacher was ill and the only other teacher who had a free period was the science teacher, a guy called Benbow. He said, “I don’t know what to talk to you about; I’m just a clarinet player.” So he played a bit of Sidney Bechet, but then he played Lead Belly and I’m going, “What the f**k? All the hairs on the back of my neck are going up! What is this?” I’m eleven years old or something and I go up to him afterwards and say, “What is that?” He played me a bit of Big Bill Broonzy and I’m going, “Wow!”

Before I played an instrument, I would write secret poetry to express myself. I kept it well away from my soccer-playing chums, otherwise I would’ve had my ass kicked probably. “Hey, how are you doing?” “Well, the sun hangs slowly like a golden orb.” As soon as I started playing a couple of chords they became lyrics. Hearing blues singer talk about the honesty of sex, the honesty of politics, of poverty, of heartbreak,” it just rung all of my bells, as opposed to leaving me flat on “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter.” F**k, that meant nothing to me. But when you’ve got The Who harnessing Motown and you’ve got The Kinks harnessing whatever the f**k Ray Davis was, those things just resonated like f**k. All of that was going into the Coverdale blender to be mixed up in preparation for my work with Deep Purple.

MR: How big does spirituality play in your life and music?

DC: I’ve always completely and utterly believed in a supreme being. Always. I was unable to articulate it when I was a kid, but my best friend was a catholic kid and I used to sneak into their church, I knew all the hymns, until a priest grabbed me by my significantly short hair and dragged me out and literally threw me out of the fucking church, which probably served me well in the long time. I’ve always believed in God, even as a child going, “Oh, please bring me a grey bike for Christmas.” I always believed there was something more than what’s just here. Of course as I got older my believe system became that of spirituality. I don’t particularly embrace religions, but my spirituality is complete, I meditate and pray to God every day without fail and do my energy intentions and stuff. It’s an amazing journey to be on. It’s the ultimate accessory for me, Michael. Having real hair and meditation has made my life complete. [laughs]

MR: Well, I have one of those! [laughs]

DC: So the thing for me now…you said “full circle” and that’s exactly the expression I’ve been using. A feeling of completion. Being able to pay respectful tribute to the men of Deep Purple. There isn’t a note on The Purple Album that isn’t a respectful nod to each of our colleagues. All my liner notes in there are respectful. The guys came in… Reb Beach was so full of this project that Michael and I offered him a co-production scenario, which he did heroically throughout last year. Joel Hoekstra came in to assume as a fresh guitar player after Doug Aldrich had moved on. Joel’s musicality is extraordinarily welcome. Tom and Michael Devin, Tommy Aldridge came in, the drummer, he came in and set the energy bar for this project. If anybody can’t hear the drive and celebration from the moment “Burn” starts going I don’t want to know them. It’s like f**king NASCAR with Tommy in the driving seat. Tommy’s very much like the school of Ian Paice, the original drummer on these songs, who was significantly more influenced by big band drummers like Max Roach and Buddy Rich and whoever, harnessing those elements in a rock environment, whereas a lot of other people follow the school of John Bonham, just straight forward rock ‘n’ roll stuff. This was perfect for Tommy to come in on. I said, “None of these are going to be singles, we don’t have to worry about CHR, just fucking go for it,” and my god, they did. But as soon as Tommy started going I saw the guys physically go, “F**k!” and everyone came up a few notches. It was really inspiring. It was all positive, Michael, it was lovely.

MR: In your opinion, what is the legacy of Deep Purple?

DC: I have no idea. I’ve never done it for that stuff! You guys are the ones who throw words like that in. Oh my god, when I’m doing interviews and people are very nervous with me, saying, “oh my god, you sang with Deep Purple, Ritchie Blackmore, Tommy Bolin, Jimmy Page, Uncle Tom Cobley and all,” you go, “Wow, it has been a serious career!” But I’ve never looked at it with those eyes. Never. It just isn’t something, “Oh my god, we deserve a place in the–” fuck ’em if they don’t want us in the rock ‘n’ roll hall of fame. Every one of my musicians, and Lars from Metallica and Paul Stanley are going, “What the f**k, aren’t you guys in?” I was actually talking to Ritchie at the time we were nominated, two years ago, I said, “Are you going to go?” he said, “Nah,” and I said, “Well if you’re not going I’m not f**king going.”

But we still sell records. When I got that big success in America, MTV time, ’87, ’88, ’89, all those years, most of the interviews out of America had no clue about Deep Purple. I was very happy to just continue talking Whitesnake, Michael. Nothing I’ve ever done is for legacy. I didn’t know “Still Of The Night” or “Is This Love?” were going to be giant fucking songs that were part of the background of people’s lives, are you kidding me? I just try to sing as good as I can, write better songs, make better records, play better concerts and challenge myself. If I’m not inspired to put effort into my work then I’m getting off that f**king horse immediately. When I stand in front of these guys and sing I do stuff that shocks the shit out of me, let alone anyone else, because I have the inspiration, the drive from that stuff and I’m still to this day inspired. Hopefully, you can hear that.

MR: Oh yeah. Has this foray into The Purple Album changed how you’re going to look at your own stuff?

DC: What was fascinating for me was seeing such a palpable thread from the very beginning of my writing with Deep Purple through to my last studio album, Forever More, there’s an absolute connection. I’ve written two heavy metal songs, “Burn,” and “Stormbringer.” Those lyrics have nothing to do with heart and soul or a search for direction or anything. They’re sci-fi fantasy things, which basically I wrote for Ritchie Blackmore, because he loved that s**t. I wasn’t going to do “Stormbringer” on this album until all of the band emotional avalanched me. “You’ve got to do it, I can’t ‘Snake it up, it’s in fixed melody, blah blah blah,” and I went, “F**k it, okay, you want to do it? We’re going to make a sonic fucking storm. In the performance and the video we’ll have it for the first time and probably the only time I’ve done production stuff with that kind of music.”

Michael dug out storms, my son Jasper became the voice of the storm, that kind of demonic voice at the beginning and the end. Four year-old Jack Hoekstra sent his daddy a message while he was working with me and I said, “Let’s put that in there.” I found a cassette of my daughter at four years old singing songs that I used to write for her, so Michael McIntyre fucked them up and low-fi’d them and distressed them. Those kids are the willful children of the storm. I’ve never done that before! It was a poopload of fun. It’s probably not something that I’m ever going to do again, but it was great and it serves its purpose for this. But in all of the songs I’ve found that there was this really common denominator that was so easy to put in certain musical accents which maybe we did live with Purple, but I’ve maximized on doing those accents so it’s part of the Whitesnake identity. It was really fun, very organic and natural. I swear to God, meditating and sitting down with a guitar, or sitting down at the piano, it just unfolded. This project was absolutely meant to be done at this time in my life. I have no doubt whatsoever.

MR: How do you think Jon would’ve reacted to The Purple Album? He had to be in your heart and in your mind as you were doing this, right?

DC: I know what you’re saying, but I’ll be honest with you. I never look at replacing musicians. I get new people in who I feel can help inspire me and take Whitesnake another step up the ladder and hopefully reciprocate with them so it’s a mutual exchange of energy and creativity. I specifically focused on the twin guitar attack of Whitesnake on this record. I brought in a keyboard player I worked with many years ago who I knew was an acolyte of Jon Lord and Emerson and Rick Wakeman to do the keyboards, but I said, “The focus will be on twin guitars. The keyboards are just going to be more layered and more orchestral on epics like ‘Mistreated’ and ‘You Keep On Moving’ and ‘The Gypsy,’ adding more synthesized orchestra than we did back in the day.” I think Jon’s response would be, “There’s nowhere near enough f**king organ on this! It’s missing my organ.” And that’s what it is.

But Jon was such a unique man, his musicality, his inversions. George Harrison was brilliant with inversions, moreso than the other two guys, but as George came into his own he wrote all of these things he called silly chords, those diminished chords and stuff that worked beautifully and established the George Harrison identity. Jon Lord would bring that to my songs. His musicality, instead of a straight “C,” he would say, “Oh, what about a major seventh or a minor seventh,” and my god it made all the difference in the world. He had a beautiful feel for music and melody. Gorgeous.

MR: Can you remember his reactions to your creativity while working with him?

DC: Jon was huge to me. I’ll give you three very quick examples. Just after Ian Gillan and Roger Glover joined, my local group supported Deep Purple, the early Mark II as students at Bradford University. The Purple guys were really complimentary. We had some alternate arrangements for “Shakin’ All Over” by Johnny Kidd & The Pirates. But I was already messing around, trying to take straightforward songs and making them more rocky or whatever. You know how Page did with Willie Dixon songs and Duane Allman did with Muddy Waters stuff. Taking the blues and just making something symphonic with them was really interesting. There’s no reason on this planet for me to lie, but Jon Lord sat me down and said, “I like your voice a lot.” I’m going, “Oh my God, this is amazing!” He said, “Do you have a phone number in case it doesn’t work out with the other guy?” I didn’t have a phone number, I was still living with my parents and we never had a phone. So I gave him my address and we went our separate ways. Of course, I’ve got blue birds flying out of every orifice driving home and checking the mailbox every day for the next three months. And it worked out incredibly well with the new guy, as we can all testify.

The second time was my audition when I’m this nervous kid. I brought a bottle of Bell’s Whisky and the guy who drove me down hid it from me, but of course I found it, so I’m having little sips, and Jon sat me down and said, “Don’t worry about it, just be yourself. You’re among friends.” He spoke to me like an incredibly kind soul. This beautiful-looking guy really settled my nerves and helped me calm down. And he did the fucking same again after I got the gig with Purple and I’d been at rehearsals at Clearwell Castle with the power trio of Blackmore, Pace, and Glenn Hughes. Jon had had to stay in London for a couple of days on business and he called up Ritchie and said, “So how’s it going?” “Oh, great,” and he said, “How’s David doing?” “Oh, he seems great. He hasn’t sung anything, but I think he’s doing well.” [laughs] So he comes down to Clearwell Castle and he sends everybody down to the local pubs, so it’s just Jon and I in the studio–well, crypt–where rehearsal stuff is. He goes, “Yeah, have a drink. I must tell you, when you sang yesterday at the audition I had tears in my eyes. It was beautiful.” I sang more of the Ray Charles style vocal.

So he’s just playing music and I’m singing along, Beatles tunes and rock stuff, just the two of us and a couple of drinks to get the edge off. It was an amazing conversation for this founder of Deep Purple to share with a new guy, he said, “It’s really hard for me because when we started I was the primary writer. Once we did the In Rock album Ritchie became the dynamo. Ritchie can just play the simplest of riffs and everybody goes, ‘Oh wow, that’s amazing!’ But if I played that riff on organ it just doesn’t resonate. Nobody gets it.” I said, “Some of my favorite stuff is chord-related on organ. Have you got any chord sequences?” and he played me this sequence which ultimately became “Might Just Take Your Life.” I went, “F**k, that’s like ‘Heard It Through The Grapevine!” That was my foundation, so I start wailing on this stuff and John’s going, “Oh my god, look, goose bumps!” and all this. I would take my riffs to Blackmore and I would take my chord sequences to Jon. It became really apparent from then on. But I can’t tell you how pivotal Jon Lord was in my life to help me on my fucking journey. It was amazing.

MR: Can you hear other musicians’ works who seemed to have been affected by him? Can you hear what kind of influence he had on rock in general?

DC: Oh God yeah! He just made the Hammond organ. Him, Wakeman, Emerson, those guys just took it from Jimmy Smith and put it into a rock format. If you take Jon Lord’s left hand off Deep Purple record it’d be an entirely different band, even with Ian Paice and Ritchie playing. His sound was absolutely crucial to the sonic identity, as far as I’m concerned, of Deep Purple. He and Keith were beating the stage with their organs, if you’ll excuse the expression. Thrusting their organs all over the stage.

MR: [laughs] What advice do you have for new artists?

DC: Oh, in this day and age? Get a f**king lawyer. All the music companies are doing 360 deals, which couldn’t be more obscene to me. I love my lawyers. My guys have integrity, which isn’t usually synonymous, but for me as a business man I can’t see the logic of cutting your nose off to spite your face. Why would you want to not pay an appropriate royalty for streaming? Why would you try to diminish the worth of an artist when it’s their work that’s fueling their industry?

MR: It’s preying on desperation. I hate the overt greed of it. No shame.

DC: Musicians can go out and play to fill the gaping hole that the lack of record sales has created, but streaming has actually become the saving grace for record companies. But it really is to the point of such diminishing returns for musicians that I have no words to describe it. I would turn around and say, “Okay, let’s make this work,” but now I’m hearing that new contracts that are sent out from friends of mine who are lawyers, that record companies now want to pass on paying even streaming royalties because they consider streaming “promotion.” That is beyond a grey area.

MR: What does the future hold for you?

DC: I’m in awe of the bar that The Who and The Stones have raised, but I really can’t see me doing “Still Of The Night” how it’s supposed to be done at seventy. I just can’t see that. But then again, I thought I was done at thirty. It is physically demanding. One of the things I have to do is a blues album, because I truly love the blues, and whether or not this is my last big rock record it would be appropriate to go out as I came in, but I’m not sure of that because we’re probably going to be filming and recording this upcoming tour, but I see in my future just making music available directly to my fanbase through the website or wherever rather than sweet talk a record company into allowing me to do a blues record. But the other thing I want to do, truly, is an unplugged Greatest Hits with a couple of new songs. Not totally unplugged, not Simon & Garfunkel, but something not so physically demanding on my body and my voice. I do still maintain a good mid-range and low voice which seems to be appealing to a lot of people, particularly the ladies. So even if this is the last hurrah in terms of “David Coverdale aka Tarzan,” there’s going to be some up close and personal stuff I think in the foreseeable future.

RYAN CALHOUN’S “COFFEE” EXCLUSIVE

According to Ryan Calhoun…

“I knew ‘Coffee’ was going to be a polarizing song, people are either going to love it or hate it. So I wanted to have a video equally polarizing. I didn’t want the video to be ‘on the nose,’ for example a guy in a coffee shop trying to talk to a good-looking girl etc etc. As a kid I was obsessed with Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ video–who wasn’t. And with the popularity of Zombies, I thought we could do something along those lines. I worked with director Gavin Fisher and we shot the video in a day at a ranch about an hour outside of LA. I liked the dichotomy of a cheerful song about coffee being set in a post-apocalyptic zombie world! I want the viewer to be like, ‘Wait! What? This is hilarious!!’ Also, as for me, I have become a huge fan of The Zac Brown Band. He gets thrown into the ‘country’ world, but he’s so much more than that. He kind of does what ever he wants, sometimes his songs are country, other times more folk or rock. He’s a badass and he makes no apologies for it, it’s very inspiring. I do feel like my new album is parallel to Zac Brown’s style of music; he has definitely taught me that a good song is a good song. Write what you write and do what you love!”

SONNY KNIGHT AND THE LAKERS’ “WHEN YOU’RE GONE” EXCLUSIVE

2015-05-19-1432004595-6007817-RwSPdoMyH4fmWBilpC1G7qH5C0WZqTNcWgni1UZvwP8TbC12OqucQEtgEPo0o1wcTwzOj1QyOOpYSTclV86MnE.jpg

According to Sonny Knight and the Lakers drummer Eric Foss…

“For us, playing live is all about putting on a show, not just picking a bunch of songs and playing them. Set lists are developed in a very methodical way. There is no stopping to switch guitars, or tune, or tell funny stories. I guess we think of it as more of a performance art in that sense. Nothing against folks who don’t do it that way, some of my favorite artists are the exact opposite of this. I’m thinking of how Townes or Ramblin’ Jack performed live. This is just what we’re into and works best for us. Last year, we were blessed with the opportunity to perform our show nearly 100 times throughout the US and Europe. When things finally calmed down at the end of the year, we knew it was time to develop a new show. But we wanted to document this one before moving on from it. Then a four show engagement at The Dakota in Minneapolis fell in our lap and we knew it was now or never. The crazy thing about working with Sonny Knight is that at 67 years of age, somehow he just continues to get better night after night. I’m glad we were able to capture him performing that show at his very best before we dismantled it. Now we’re just looking forward to doing it all over again, releasing a new studio album, touring that record, and God willing, cut another live album.”

A Conversation with Motopony’s Daniel Blue

Mike Ragogna: You recently posted your video “Daylights Gone,” a song from your new album Welcome You. What’s the song’s concept?

Daniel Blue: “Daylights Gone” is a song comparing the phases of the moon to the transformative nature of the human experience.

MR: This being your second album, what’s been the growth or significant changes for the band creatively between the self-titled debut and Welcome You? Have your personal relationships changed since the early days?

DB: I wrote most of the first album alone in Tacoma. I hired Buddy Ross as a producer and he wound up joining and we built a band around the record we created. When we got signed, we collected a new drummer, Forrest Mauvais and a second guitarist, Mike Notter.

We set out to write a “record we could play live”, since the first record was mostly me and production tracks. During the writing process of the second album, Buddy moved on to work with Frank Ocean and I lost another member, Brantey Cady, to a friend’s project. Mike, Forrest and I brought on a trio–Andrew Butler on keys, Nate Daily on guitar, and Micah Simler on bass–and went about finishing the record and writing at least another dozen songs. We ended up finding a pretty new sound and since we were after a live sound we started over probably six or seven times. Micah went on to tour with Noah Gundersen before we tracked with McCarthy and we brought on Terry Mattson on a recommendation from Hey Marseille–Seattle chamber pop. We wanted a “band record,” and to us that meant everyone got input on everything and we all had to absolutely love every measure of our parts.  

MR: What are the responsibilities of each of the band’s members in the recording and live processes?

DB: First, it’s to our specific instrummies and strengths; I’m good at lyric, Mike is a hell of an arrangement man. But as I said, there’s not much we didn’t listen to from every member who got inspired.

MR: The last album’s emphasis track seems to have been “King Of Diamonds.” Is this album’s biggest highlight “Daylights Gone”? Can you go into a couple of stories behind the topics or creative process of a couple of other songs?

DB: “Daylights Gone” wasn’t my choice. I’m torn between “Changing,” “1971” and “Gypsy Woman,” depending on my mood. Changing was a total band effort and we rewrote it like 40 times so the name became kind of ironic. “1971” came from a chorus Nate had cooking based on his idolization of that period in music and a “champagne super party” he feels like he missed out on growing up in the depressing 90’s. “Gypsy Woman” is a song from my inner feminine–Carl Jung would call an “anima”–to myself about how to be a performer.  

MR: What was it like working with Mike McCarthy?

DB: Indescribable. Im kidding. I’m not kidding. He’s a master at vintage sound.  

MR: How does Seattle play into the spirit of the band? 

DB: Context is the only definition we have, buddy. It’s the only thing that’s real.  

MR: Which artists or songs influenced you as you became aware of music? What age did you become aware you wanted to follow music as a path?

DB: Growing up, I wanted to be either an astronaut or a rockstar.  But the truth is my parents didn’t trust or teach science and we listened to very little secular music.  When I was 12 we moved to Washington and I discovered FM radio on an alarm clock they bought me for school.  I would listen in secret with the intent a dry sponge has in a puddle. There was no filter, I wanted it all. As I developed my own style and friend group I leaned toward grunge and classic rock, but mostly because that’s what the other kids with skateboards listened to… In my late teens and early twenties, I was a fiend for electronic music and dance culture and when the drugs wore off I got into Emo and shoe gaze. When I started writing poetry in my mid-twenties, someone turned me on to the beats and that led me through the ’60s to Dylan and then Neil Young and subsequently late era John Lennon. Wherein I fell back in love with The Beatles…which was the only music my parents had that wasn’t pretending to be religious. Full circle, haha!

MR: Are there any steps or events you would have wanted to do differently up to this point? 

DB: I’ve no regrets. All consequence is learning.  

MR: What’s Motopony map of the future?

DB: Love one another. Stay close, forgive each other. Stay honest, enjoy what comes.  

MR: What advice do you have for new artists?

DB: Ask yourselves the big why questions. Where does inspiration come from? How does sound create emotions? Who am I, really? What do I actually have to say?  

Avoid the trap of trying. Don’t let anyone–including your own desire–make you try to sound like this or that. Don’t try to be cool or popular. Don’t try to write music that sells. Fame and money will come if you are chosen and dedicated to pure expression that other humans can relate to. Love the listener, even if you are being critical of them. Tell your truth in a way it will be understood. Don’t copy your heroes, they weren’t copying theirs.

CRAIG GREENBERG’S “THAT GIRL IS WRONG FOR YOU” EXCLUSIVE

2015-05-18-1431982487-5159347-CraigGreenberg1.jpg

According to Craig Greenberg…

“The song, ‘That Girl Is Wrong for You,’ isn’t about one ‘girl’ specifically, but is more an indictment of a few women I’ve known over the years. In the lyric, I am singing as the benevolent narrator, trying to warn a friend, but the truth is it’s about my experience going after women that aren’t right for me, which I seem to do repeatedly in my life. Maybe it’s wanting the unattainable, or maybe it’s a fear of commitment I have that makes me pursue unworkable relationships.  Unfortunately, I haven’t figured it out yet, so I imagine the song will continue to resonate with me for some time.

Musically, ‘That Girl Is Wrong for You,’ is one of the most straight ahead songs I’ve written, and also one of the shortest. I’d say it’s as close to a standard pop song as I have in my catalog. Rarely do I like key changes in pop songs, but I managed to slip one in that I think works quite effectively to give the song a lift, and also isn’t cheesy. And I’m especially proud of the piano solo breakdown in there. I defy any listener to not nod their head or stomp their feet during that section. It’s rock ‘n’ roll as I think it should be–simple, danceable, and fun!”

“That Girl is Wrong for You” is off of Craig Greenberg’s album The Grand Loss & Legacy

Total Rubbish: A Chat with Monty Python’s Eric Idle, Plus ASCAP, Scott James and Scott Mickelson Exclusives

A Conversation with Monty Python’s Eric Idle

Mike Ragogna: Mr. Idle, your latest, titled Total Rubbish, is not total rubbish, goodly sir.

Eric Idle: [laughs] Well, it’s “total” in regards of what we recorded.

MR: A complete collection of basically everything Monty Python released on CD or records. Hallelujah.

EI: Yes, it’s the complete audio collection, and there’s quite a lot of it, isn’t there.

2015-04-24-1429846268-2352278-MP_CD_Box.jpg

MR: So whose idea was it to pour this much Monty Python into one container?

EI: I think it was our wonderful manager, Jim Beach, who said it was time these came out again. There’s such a lot of wealth of material we’d completely forgotten about because we wrote it only for the album. It’s nice that they’re out again. I actually haven’t had time to listen to it, but I’m looking forward to it because I think there are some hidden treasures in there.

MR: How do you feel the records compared to the TV show? Did they bring out some other elements of Monty Python that the show couldn’t?

EI: It started out just being a BBC record of the highlights of the first series or maybe the first two series. We did it in front of a live audience and it was material that was pretty much familiar to us anyway. All the other albums were created as records and that meant that people wrote fresh material, there’s no visual element to it that’s missing, it was for audio only. We used it to play gags like the three-sided album, which is, sadly, very hard to reproduce.

MR: It was so confusing to try and land the needle on the right side!

EI: We wanted to just blow people’s minds when they put the second side on and it was completely different. We started both of the second sides with the same joke so they couldn’t tell which side they were going to get. It was always fun playing around with the form and trying to startle and surprise the audience.

MR: Monty Python was so influential globally, but you have to know that.

EI: Python has been influential. Interestingly, when we first came to America in 1973, we were known purely through our records. Buddha Records put them out and people didn’t know there was a TV series because it hadn’t been on American TV then. It was like Firesign Theater, where it was just for audio. It was quite fun.

MR: WNET, the PBS in New York aired Monty Python… and it was so outrageous for the time period. I remember watching an episode with my father who tried unsuccessfully to make it through a full episode. As he left the room, he turned to me and said, “Well, one thing’s for sure. These boys are pretty angry.” [laughs]

EI: I think there’s a truth in that. I think comedy is anger, and its expression in a very healthy form.

MR: So there’s a therapeutic element of it for you!

EI: Comedy is very therapeutic, because it says things you don’t really expect to hear. I think it’s like The Emperor’s New Clothes, with the kid going, “Look, he’s not wearing anything!” I think that’s what comedy does really well; it exposes hypocrisy and says, “You really shouldn’t take these people that seriously. They’re foolish, the lot of them.”

MR: One of the amazing things about Monty Python’s Flying Circus was what you each brought to the mix to complete the picture. You all were stars in your own right and all of your talents were on full display, yet there was no single star. So how did the creative mechanics of this venture work?

EI: John Cleese was a star because he’d done The Frost Report. He was very famous in England, but instead of doing a show like Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett, he didn’t want to do his own starring show. I think that’s very interesting about him; he wanted to do a gang show. He and Graham [Chapman] were watching a show that Mike [Palin], Terry [Jones] and I did called Do Not Adjust Your Set and he said, “Let’s get these guys.” But when we came to writing material, it was always the whistle test. You had to read it out and if people laughed, it was in and if they didn’t laugh, we’d sell it to The Two Ronnies.

MR: Were there any routines where, once you acted them out, they were even funnier than how you conceptualized them?

EI: The interesting thing about the group is it’s a group of writers. I don’t think there’s ever been such a group before, where the writers have final say. We’re always trying push it and not be the same old BBC comedy show, which is why we use that phrase, “And now for something completely different,” which was used perfectly seriously on comedy shows and then they’d have somebody singing a song. There was always a component of light entertainment in British comedy TV shows. I think we were able to circumvent that and mock it, too.

MR: Is there a particular album you admire most?

EI: Everybody would take turns to do various things. Often, the records were produced by Mike and Terry. I didn’t get into producing records until Matching Tie & Handkerchief. John Du Prez and I were working on it and we encouraged people to put songs in it, which was a different move for Python. Then, finally, I got to edit all of the Python songs together on Monty Python Sings, which is our best-selling album by about a factor of ten because you can hear a song again, but you can’t hear a sketch again. “I’m not going to put ‘The Cheese Shop’ on again, I’ve heard it once. I’m going to laugh, but I’m not going to laugh more the second time.” But with a song, you can hear it again.

2015-04-24-1429847074-5504390-Untitled.jpg

MR: Speaking of singing, you re-recorded “The Galaxy Song” only with Stephen Hawking this time around. How did that come together?

EI: It came about because of ‘O2 and the show we put on last year. Brian Cox is a friend of mine and he’d be going on and on about how some facts of “The Galaxy” are not accurate. That’s mainly because it was written in 1982. Thirty years have gone by and we now have better understanding of how many billions of stars there are and what the distances actually are. He’d always go on a nitpick about that, so I wrote a bit for him where after we sang the song, he’d come on and start to pull it to bits. Then he gets run over by Stephen Hawking, and it made me laugh so much, the idea of Brian Cox being run over by Stephen Hawking that I said to Brian, “Do you think he’d do it?” He said, “I’ll email him!” He got a reply in ten minutes saying, “Yes!” [laughs] So we had the brilliant pleasure of going up to Cambridge for a day and filming with him. Next week, they’re going to show that documentary Monty Python Live where you actually see us going in. We had already got him saying the lyrics and we added music and tempo and adjusted things and we play it to him and you just see him smile. It’s just really sweet.

MR: That sounds like another amazing off-the-scale moment for you. Some of your songs especially are so well-known and loved that singing them–especially “The Lumberjack Song”–practically was a ritual for every kid growing up. What is your explanation for Monty Python’s popular culture resonance?

EI: I don’t know. One thing we always agreed on was it would never go in America. We were convinced that that was so, but some American producers came and asked us if they could buy the format and we all had a good laugh and said we don’t have a format. So I said, “Let’s sell it to them anyway.” We really thank PBS. PBS made it popular and it was on in every city in every part of America. It would still not be on network TV. It’s largely thanks to PBS. Nobody measured the people watching PBS except in Dallas, where when they first put it on they got these enormous figures suddenly. Dallas was the first place to put it on.

MR: Could one of the reasons Monty Python was so popular with kids be that teachers turned their students on to the show? I remember one of my high school english teachers took our class on a field trip to see Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

EI: I think the playground is the first place where kids start to say, “Did you see that show last night?” and Python really was a classic cult show. It had a tiny audience, really. It was late on a Sunday night in England and people go, “What’s this?” It’s kind of amazing that it’s in ninety-two countries now. It’s mind boggling. The Russians watch it, the Japanese watch it, the Czechs watch it, the Hungarians watch it. It was saying something kind of silly about humanity, I think. I guess in a way, it was also about Television, which was certainly new in England. It reflects the television culture, which is not the only culture you there that is left.

MR: What do you think about some of Monty Python’s now classic skits after all of these years? The exploding penguins, the silly walks, the Cheese Shoppe, the lumberjacks…

EI: It’s a funny, sort of strange parody of bureaucracy and politics, really, the silly walks. The idea that you would have a whole department of silly walks, there are just as equally silly departments doing silly things. The Penguin is just completely, wonderfully absurd. Now it’s time for your penguin on top of your television set to explode.

MR: As far as comedy in films, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, …Life Of Brian, and …The Meaning Of Life really pushed boundaries. I always hoped there would be a next one. By the way, why wasn’t there a next one?

EI: We found that there aren’t many great subjects left. When we wrote and filmed Meaning Of Life in 1982, that’s sort of the last time we performed together until ‘O2. It is a young person’s game, that sort of sketch comedy. You begin to want to write longer pieces–well, we did write movies, but it’s harder to write a movie with six people. It’s just harder because you get the characters and a plot and all of those things that you need in long form are harder to do in a group whereas what we used to do was just dash out funny bits and stick them together and find themes that link them and exploit the random quality of it but appearing to make them connected.

2015-04-24-1429847360-2620091-post8220660152001312304327.jpg

MR: Then again, you quickly went into a smaller format with Rutland Weekend Television that gave birth to The Rutles.

EI: Yeah, but nobody had parodied The Beatles. They were gods. This was 1977, so they were all still alive, it hadn’t become where everybody’s lives were somewhat tragic in parts. It sort of just took the story, which is a great story, of these guys who come out of nowhere and just take the world.

MR: Speaking of The Beatles, George Harrison practically became a member of your troupe.

EI: He was such a huge fan of Python and all rock ‘n’ roll people sort of were, really. We were the ones who weren’t playing instruments, but we’re all of the same generation, that sixties generation, except our thing’s comedy. We kept together a pretty good time. We started in ’69 and ended in ’82. That’s a pretty good run for a bunch of guys who are going to get married and have their lives. I think we did pretty good holding together.

MR: Eric, what advice do you have for new artists?

EI: I think what you do is you start out copying people you love. We copied Beyond The Fringe and The Goons and then you get into the rhythms and you start to write your own versions. I think you have to learn somebody funny and understand what’s funny and then try to find your own voice.

MR: Do you feel like Monty Python completed its mission? Are you satisfied with Monty Python’s legacy?

EI: I think we did good. I’m most proud of the fact that we actually got together in our seventies and actually went and did a farewell show. I think that’s fairly unlikely. I think all of us would have said, “No, that’s never going to happen,” but then under the circumstances, there we were just doing it. It was kind of fun and sweet and tender and touching. It was a great evening.

MR: I’ll never forget watching the reunion, seeing the urn sitting there, thinking, “Oh my God, no!”

EI: We did a great joke with the urn at one comedy festival where we kicked it over. That had four minute laughs on it. The audience just couldn’t believe we had gone there. We were sweeping it up and getting vacuum cleaners and brushing it up. It was good fun.

MR: So when’s your next farewell tour?

EI: I think it’s quite impossible. A, Michael Palin doesn’t want to do it and B, we just about got us in time. We’re kind of old and it’s a lot of hard work. I think we just found the best way to come together and do it for the last time. I think that’s got a lot of class to it. I think you won’t see all of Python going out again for sure. I think people won’t stop performing and doing their own things at all, because that’s what you do with your own life, but I think the unlikelihood of getting five people together–people always want you to write things, they don’t realize we live in different continents and rarely meet. You have to be together to write something, even if we had something we could still do, those time are gone. I wish there were more Beatles songs.

According to Scott Mickelson…

“‘Hercules & Iron Man,’ which draws parallels between the struggles of mythological heroes and the struggles all of us face every day, seems to strike a nerve lots of folks. Whether we’re leaping tall buildings or pushing a stroller down the street, it can sometimes take all our strength just to make it through the day. We succeed and many times fail but we do what we need to do. “Hercules” has become a heavily requested song on Flickering. My buddy Jeff Campbell who sings on the record and who has performed it with me many times did me the favor of coming to my studio to capture it in an honest, stripped down, manner. Thanks Jeff!”

Eric Bolling, Fox ‘The Five’ Co-Host, Slams ‘Dummy’ Jon Stewart

Well, that didn’t take long.

On Wednesday night, Jon Stewart called Fox News Channel “The Five” co-host Eric Bolling “the dumb guy” while interviewing one of the show’s other hosts, Dana Perino. On Thursday, Bolling fired back during his show’s “One More Thing” segment.

“It’s kind of sad, the guy is so obsessed with hating Fox News that he spent a lot of the time taking shots at us, especially me. Apparently, I’m living rent-free inside Stewart’s head. Whatever, Jonny boy. Your time would’ve been better spent talking to Dana about her book. It’s great. It’s optimistic. It’s positive. It’s upbeat. Had you done your homework, you might have learned something… dummy.”

“You showed him, Eric,” co-host Greg Gutfeld said.

“It’s on. The ping-pong is happening!” added Kimberly Guilfoyle.

Bolling was referring to Perino’s book, “And the Good News Is…,” which she was on the “The Daily Show to promote. However, she and Stewart spent much of the time talking about “The Five” instead.

Bolling and Stewart have something of a feud going on. Stewart has repeatedly lampooned “The Five,” and Bolling has taken to the air to fire back at both Stewart and Stephen Colbert, who had also lampooned the show on “The Colbert Report.”

Eric Moutsos, Utah Officer Who Resigned After Objecting To Gay Pride Parade Assignment, Speaks Out

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A former Salt Lake City police officer who was put on leave and later resigned after he objected to riding in the motorcycle brigade at the front of last year’s gay pride parade is speaking out against what he believes was a violation of his religious liberties.

Eric Moutsos, 33, said Wednesday that he was unfairly branded a bigot despite simply asking to swap roles and work a different part of the parade in June 2014. Moutsos, a Mormon, said he felt uncomfortable doing what he considered celebratory circles with other motorcycles leading the parade because of his religious views. But he said he never refused to work the parade. “It looks like we and I are in support of this parade,” Moutsos said he told superiors about being in the motor brigade. “I said I would feel the same way if this was an abortion parade. I would feel the same way if it was a marijuana parade.”

In an interview with The Associated Press, Moutsos said he’s coming out with his story now to be a voice in a national debate about how to safeguard religious beliefs while protecting LGBT rights.

Salt Lake Police Chief Chris Burbank said he stands behind his decision to put Moutsos on leave, saying he will not tolerate officers allowing personal biases to interfere with their work.

“It has nothing to do with religious freedom, that has to do with the hatred of those individuals and what the parade stands for, which is about unity and coming together,” Burbanks said. “How can I then send that officer out to a family fight that involves a gay couple or a lesbian walking down the street?”

Moutsos said he felt compelled to come forward with his story after months of silence after he listened to leaders with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announce a campaign last month calling for new laws that protect gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people from discrimination while also protecting people who assert their religious beliefs.

Moutsos issued a six-page statement through his attorney Monday that didn’t have his name. But he decided to reveal his identity in an interview he gave to the Deseret News and KSL-TV that came out Tuesday night.

“It is unquestionably my duty as a police officer to protect everyone’s right to hold a parade or other event, but is it also my duty to celebrate everyone’s parade?” Moutsos wrote in the statement.

Several state legislatures, including Utah, are considering anti-LGBT discrimination laws alongside measures to safeguard religious liberties. Moutsos hasn’t been invited to talk to lawmakers, but he said he would testify if asked.

“We can 100-percent disagree and still 100-percent love,” Moutsos said. “I hate that we’re labeled in this way that is so divisive.”

Moutsos’ life changed dramatically in the days leading up to last summer’s gay pride parade. He had been talking with his bosses about resolving his objections while still helping out during the parade when he was informed that he was being put on leave for discrimination — a move that shocked him.

The story became public after police issued a news release saying an unnamed officer had been put on leave for refusing the gay pride parade assignment. The department said it does not tolerate bias and bigotry, and it does not allow personal beliefs to enter into whether an officer will accept an assignment.

Burbank said it is inappropriate for Moutsos to come out now with his story. Moutsos forfeited his right to defend himself during a police internal investigation when he resigned before they ever talked with him, Burbank said.

Moutsos, a married father of four, said he has gay friends and family and has no problem with 95 percent of their life choices. He said he is offended by the notion that he would treat gays and lesbians differently as an officer.

Moutsos has since found work with another police agency in the state. But he said the last six months were difficult and depressing for him and his family.

His attorney, Bret Rawson, said they have not made a decision about a possible lawsuit over the handling of the situation.

Moutsos acknowledged that he could have been more diplomatic in his conversations with superiors. But he doesn’t regret asserting his beliefs.

“I used to be quite the hellion back in my day, and I found what I believe is God kind of later in my life,” Moutsos said. “Now, I have such a strong, deep faith in Him . . . He and I love people, but I do not advocate certain things in people’s lives. In this parade, there were messages that I don’t advocate.”
