This Is a Jackson Browne Video

Today, the Jackson Browne classic "Somebody's Baby." Why a Jackson Browne video? Because I received a simple request from an old friend. Oh, and "Somebody's Baby" is probably the best song off the awesome Fast Times at Ridgemont High soundtrack.

How many of you went to a Jackson Browne concert back in the day?

I love Jackson Browne. I saw him twice in concert. Once at the old Lowes Theater in Dayton (it's now a parking lot next to the Schuster Center) and once at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Columbus -- both times early to mid 70s. At the Lowes Theater show, Linda Ronstadt, who at the time was a little known artist, opened for him. I still have all my Jackson Browne vinyl and a working turntable -- this evening I believe I'll saturate before using and slip into the past.

Jackson Browne was one of my earliest concerts. I think it was my 3rd or 4th.. after a couple Elvis shows as a youngin'. Just so happens that my aunt took me to Merriweather Post Pavilion the evening that the show was recorded for the "Running On Empty" release. When the release came out 3 songs from that night at Merriweather were included on the release... "Running On Empty", The Load Out" and "Stay".

Whenever I'm in a super mellow mood I still slap the "Late For The Sky" CD (my fav JB release) into the CD player.

Rock-It! Whoa! You saw Elvis ?! Now that's Rock & Roll.

p.s. Let us not forget, in 1992, Jackson Browne was accused by Darryl Hannah, his girlfriend at the time, of domestic abuse against her. And while I'm glad to see people like his music regardless of his personal reputation, I have it on good authority from a friend, who was one of the major East Coast booking agents in the 70's and 80's, working with everyone from The Stones to Quiet Riot, Jacka*s Browne is one of the most arrogant jackas*es in the business. And, I'm sure it's not much of a leap to hypothesize that Elvis probably thought his stuff was sh*te and Browne more than likely DESPISED Heavy Metal, even Hard Rock, of any kind, since his stuff is basically verging on what amounts to be nothing more than elevator music, save for some rather grating slide guitar work. Still, I do like "Doctor My Eyes", which reached #8 on the Billboard Charts in 1972 and was covered by The Jackson 5 that same year. That cover reached #9 on the UK Charts where it remained for 10 weeks.

I saw jackson browne opening for Tom Petty probably about ten years ago. He was okay I guess. I was never a big fan, and became less of one after the darryl Hannah allegations. That said, now that I'm mellowing with age, I am less aversed to his music than I used to be. I do give him props for being a compadre of Warren Zevon's back in the day. Regardless of what you think of Zevon's music, that dude was a badass.

Best song from Fast Times ? Possibly the soundtrack, but from the movie ~ Moving in Stereo by the Cars. :)

Moving in Stereo possibly the greatest song in a movie in the history of cinema.....

Warren Zevon (RIP) was Bada*s and always will be Bad*s and that also goes for his music!

Say whatever you want about David Letterman but it was extraordinary what he did when he booked Zevon for a solid week of "Late Show" totally devoted to the man and his music with no other guests just weeks before he died.

It was a tribute to a legend while he was still living. Like I said"-- Extraordinary!

Yay Metalboy! Our musical paths intersect once again. I'm a huge Zevon fan, both of the person, and the music. and yes, Letterman showed complete class by giving Zevon the spotlight. Nobody, and I mean nobody, could paint a disturbing lyrical picture like zevon.

"Well, I'm sittin' here playing solitaire
With my pearl-handled deck
The county won't give me no more methadone
And they cut off your welfare check"

Bob -- yeah, Bro, when we agree, the act in question is usually quite exceptional, as is the case of Zevon.

I was trying to find the song with that line he wrote about being in rehab at Betty Ford, "trimming the hedges with Elizabeth Taylor."

Pure Genius!
