Now I feel bad about drinking Miller

I sometimes forget that I live in a rarified place where people know alot about music. No one I know would be so dumb as to just up and forget any black musicians when listing the pioneers of rock music.

What a bunch of fucking racists.

Yes, I am seriously annoyed that they didn't mention Our Local Hero, at age 80+ still performing once a week at a local bar - Chuck Berry!

It's not so bad as it seems. Rolling Stone says Miller originally had 62 names as possibilities for the promotion, 16 of them African-American artists. The company contacted all 16 (or their representatives, particularly in the case of those diseased) -- and none of them could participate, with reasons ranging from being uninterested to being in rehab.

Miller also notes that this particular promotion ends with the big concert in New York that will not be short on the African-American pioneers and stars of rock -- Lenny Kravitz, James Brown and Bo Diddley are already scheduled to appear. Bo Diddley's PR people, by the way, said regarding racism charges against Miller that it's a non-issue.

But skipping Hendrix. Blame The Associated Press though -- that was their story posted on the CNN site.

That does make me feel better. I'm still regarding the Rolling Stone as part of the great conspiracy to remake rock music in the image of those who own the record companies, not those who actually create the music.

Most likely true. I just figure if Bo's not worried, I won't be either.

I was reading a powerline blog this mroning and couldnt figure out how to post this.

For the record, there is an awesome free blog service that uses wordpress instead of this which is more feature rich than these blogs and it is totally free. Hosting and all! If you want one or ten of them their link is clubblogs.com

Anyway, thanks for letting us visit : )
