fuller of first bob dylan album; he talked about 'talkin NY blues"!

LOVES Bob Seger (but not the stuff on cameo-parkway! as covered
by a cam Ackland post-Movers band): 'against the wind"! Let

"Valentine's Day was Tim Buckley's birthday! Miss Lyn will
now list all the Tim Buckley records she owned in order of release
dates....uh ok, SO,,,,I was to harvard Square, raven used books,
Church street, the bargain section (of course!) $2.95: Blue
Melody: Tim Buckley Remembered by Lee Underwood,
whom played a lot of guitar with him on a lot of albums. Facts,
60s reminisces, gigs, labels, tours etc. ALL there upon finishing
posted on facebook status and Michael Anthony Miller, whom, driving
from Steve Lorber's Mystic Eyes show one night said "Kenne,
I have an idea for a song....da da da da da da...America First".
I WAS living in Bloomington indiana, heard in passing of Tim Buckley's
passing BUT the no-comproming Celt (roots in Amerstam NY i been
there on greyhound) DID (Saint Timothy) bless us Gizmos a year later
as we got praise and kissed no ass! (Dead People Fact; found a Gene
Gene-aology site, Tim's ma traced back to SICILY like my beloved
homegurel Lydia Lunch....AND Madonna! I love them all!). Lee
Underwood, author/guitar/poet DID write me a nice messenger
upon friending me via facebook, thanking me for liking book etc
BUY (dont steal) this book, I feel it ranks with Morrison and
Joplin bios (28 IF for Tim), burnt candle both ends but GODDAM,
I declare (to quote the GRATEFUL DEAD!) left some damn fine music!
Lee and I both got sober, so yer readin' it in the book I aint wrote
again and DO check
out Lee Underwood's poetry

"Til Tuesday 12 Feb 19. Blizzard of Ozzzz, eye doctor,
Davis Square, Somerville,Mass. I Mad Texter Gee Julie; "somerville
thee- ate-er, Bohemian Rhapsody, 430
PM, ONLY showin'!" using vacation tyme for "Eye dont
need no doctor" AND movie, I am indeed a paid rock writer!
Before 6 pm, it's EIGHT DOLLARS! So "sweet lil sixteen"
for "your favourite gal". ok, "Thoughts" (a
Vanilla Fudge 45 I had the once). My favourite part is ALWAYS
in the beginning so 1970 London, Smile etc. (I even remember Larry
Lurex from "back then"!); recording the first album
played for me by "Jailbait Janet"'s boyfriend back in
("Head's In") '73"....I guess once they started
having Top 40 hits for the teenyboppers ca "Killer Queen"
they kinda lost me but those first two albums "a cross between
Led Zeppelin and Yes"...that's what I dig! otherwise great
acting, great music etc etc, sad ending ("I never cry"...."can
i get a witness"?).....and that may be last movie I see for
a spell, when Cal Cali returns I have a gig a week with Glider,
but till then saturday matinee 9 march 19 midway cafe,
club linehan/billy connors/ state of union/crunchtime cd release!
(must hype weekly)"
