Here is a new demo of my song “Boy To Ramadi.” The song and others will be part of a CD that needs a producer (Mr. Phil Spector: Maybe we can work through the Internet).

You’re probably thinking “Who the …. is Word-Drum and why would I want to listen to his music?”

That’s not my real name, it’s Elvis and I’m alive!

 

Put that out and listen to this.

Blogging replaced creating music for the last several years. I’ll take a break from the blog while I’m making new music and demo tapes. You can hear them, just click

“New Songs 2012” contains original blues, rock and jazz.

Let these two tracks from John Coltrane give you strength to battle through the storms raining down on the once Land Of The Free.

Trane’s ‘Love Supreme’ was spiritually and artistically monumental, but the times and his probing nature pushed him to keep searching. Later in 1965 he made “Transition.”

By his death in 1967 the transition had been made. But like ‘Hope and Change,’ it’s not always a good thing. Within a year, Dr. King would be dead and the Welfare State was born.

Not everyone will appreciate the beauty of Trane’s late period. I just love it, but I see the wisdom of returning to A Love Supreme for a nation losing it’s soul.

He’s a lonely jihadi and longs for his day of murder and mayhem.

Here’s a demo of a new little blues tune (called for now): “KTJB” (Kill The Jews Blues). Made specially for Word-Drum readers who will appreciate the mild humor and hint of country blues feeling in the song.

I humbly offer it (after the remix) to the next Republican candidate for President. The subject is not one of Obama’s issues. It should be one of ours.

A Prince in the Third World…
rather be poor over here
Osama was a Prince in the Third World…
but I’d rather be poor over here
When the Left make us a “green” nation
we’ll be happy if we can change our underwear

                                         Maestro please…

Al McKibbon: bass

hero of the story

Watching too many movies. I get free movie channels for 3 months with my new Dishnet. It works fine except when it snows. We are having a blizzard so I was planning on actually reading a book tonight. It stopped snowing so it works again(Thank God, reading involves too much thinking…unless it’s on the Internet of course).

But even more suspenseful than the movies is waiting to find out if I survive the new year and have the price of admission for the next one. That’s a scary movie.

If next week you find that this site is now selling windmills, or organic Viagra, that might be an indication that I have gone under water. Stay tuned for the final conclusion, or continued weirdness.

“Adopt A Sailor” was a really nice little movie I watched this evening. And “Book Of Eli” is great.
