BAD DAY

1) BO DIDDLEY DIES AT AGE 79



that's it. rock 'n' roll is really, really, officially dead.

[ASIDE: once saw Bo in the baggage claim area at Newark Airport. no fancy luggage for him...just a beat-up duffle with childish hand-lettering that read "Bo's Bag"!]

and nb: i am the founding member of The Jerome Green Fan Club.

and nb2: Bruce Springsteen got it right. when he used to do "She's The One" live, there would be a momentary blackout on stage...and when the lights came back up EVERYONE in the band had maracas.

and nb3: don't know why folks bet it soooooooo wrong, but the ONLY combo to every get the Bo Beat right was The Band. the 'shaveandahaircuttwobits' beat is NOT played on the guitar...only on the drums. Robbie Robertson's right hand work in The Last Waltz is absolutely spot-on.

2) I FIND OUT MY BLADDER TUMORS ARE BACK



















...which means i need a really, really painful procedure to get rid of them called a TURBT.

basically, i'll be getting a urological D & C/have my bladder scraped.

nasty.

3) WUNDER GURL FINDS OUT SHE HAS TO PAY AN ADDITIONAL GAZILLION CLAMS IN TAXES.











...yet, she just plows ahead.

man, this woman is really, really an inspiration.
















i would be curled up in a corner...whimpering.

NP: first Bo Beat steal i can remember that became a hit.




...then there are these guys:



...who got it from these guys:




PEEVE DE JOUR: not in the best of moods.
