I apologize for the inaccurate use of the word "philanthropist" in that headline.

Unless by "philanthropist" you actually meant "fucking asshole."

Couldn't happen to a, etc.

Nelson Mandela, also the first black president of his country, also died at the age of 95. I struggle to think of many other similarities.

First concert ever, back in '78, was Eddie Money opening for some douchehole who shall remain nameless... In hindsight I should have chosen to go to Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow instead, but it was Eddie Money. RIP sir. :sadcheer:

Aw man, A Texas Trip! I forgot about this gem... What a line-up -- Fitch, Daniel Johnston, Stickmen with Rayguns, Butthole Surfers! At one time I had both the vinyl and the cassette of this, but who knows what happened to them? 1986-1992 was a long drunken psychotropic trainwreck, not unlike A Texas Trip. I'm lucky to be alive.

"I heard the voice of Satan, crying in the woods."
- Daniel Johnston
This version is very different than most other versions of this song, which is usually just him reciting the lyrics while doing his signature up/down strum on an acoustic guitar. I suspect Paul Leary and/or Gibby Haynes had a hand in the production of this.


RIP Daniel Johnston :sadcheer:

Hey, some music is commercial because some suit is trying to tow start a hit machine, and some is commercial because a lot of people like it. The Cars was the second kind.
