    One of the great double-sided hits of the era paired ‘Long Tall Sally’ with ‘Slippin’ and Slidin.’’Little Richard burst onto the emerging rock‘n’roll scene in the new year of 1956 with “Tutti-Frutti,” the American Top 20 hit that lit the fuse for an explosive follow-up. One of the great double-sided hits of the era, “Long Tall Sally,” backed with “Slippin’ and Slidin’ (Peepin’ and Hidin’),” was released on February 27 that year. Like its predecessor, the Specialty 45 would end up in both the Grammy and Rock & Roll Halls Of Fame, and help spread the word about the unique...

    Queen Online ^ | 2/27/2024
    ....When their eleventh studio album The Works - produced by Queen and Mack - was released in the UK on February 27th, 1984, fans and critics alike hailed it as Queen's return to their rock roots and to the traditional Queen sound absent from the previous album. Record Mirror described it as ‘Another jewel in the crown’. For the first time the band started the new recordings in Los Angeles in August 1983 and finished at Musicland studios in Germany early the following year. The album cover was conceived by Queen and features an image from a photographic session with...

    It is the second day of The Mark Steyn Caribbean Cruise, and we have just departed the Bahamas to sail for Jamaica. I am often accused of having a bias toward His Majesty's Dominions, so I thought, rather than a song from the British West Indies, I would offer one from Mexico, where we shall be arriving later this week. To remind us that once in a while it wasn't just Coronavirus, drugs and child sex-slavers coming across America's southern border, here's the most successful song by Mexico's first successful female composer: Cuando Vuelva A Tu Lado...

    American Thinker ^ | 24 Feb, 2024 | Martin Magnumanis
    Everyone knows that Texas is big. Not everyone knows that it is larger than over 160 counties, at 268,597 square miles. Anyone who has ever driven through Texas, heading east to west or west to east, has asked himself at least three times, “When are we going to get out of Texas?” That 850-plus-mile journey on Interstate 10 inside Texas humbles many road warriors. So how did Texas just up and vanish? Well, the State of Texas is where it has always been and is just fine. Growing in population more and more each day, Texas is one of the...

    John Mellencamp has issued a blunt, powerful statement calling for gun control in America.

I do so out of love for this country and the pain of learning, once again, that children have been killed by gun violence. "If we as a country want to find the collective will within ourselves to change our gun laws, let’s stop playing silly political games. Show the carnage on the news. Show the American people the dead children and others who have been struck down. Show...

    As one of the last surviving Beatles shows us, never give up — not even after five decades: Paul McCartney is "incredibly grateful" after he was reunited with his beloved bass more than 51 years after it vanished and sparked a global search at the Beatle's pleading. The 1961 Höfner 500/1 bass guitar — bought by McCartney as a teen in Hamburg for a mere $37 before the fame — was stolen off the back of a van transporting the band's equipment on the night of Oct. 10, 1972, in Notting Hill, according to Höfner executives who launched an investigation...

    A portrait of Beethoven painted in 1820 by Karl Joseph Stieler. (Karl Joseph Stieler/PD) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ One stormy Monday in March, 1827, the German composer Ludwig van Beethoven passed away after a protracted illness. Bedridden since the previous Christmas, he was attacked by jaundice, his limbs and abdomen swollen, each breath a struggle. As his associates went about the task of sorting through personal belongings, they uncovered a document Beethoven had written a quarter of a century earlier – a will beseeching his brothers make details of his condition known to the public. Today it is no secret that one of...
