@BobH07   -  I watched the Laurel Canyon documentary, and enjoyed it very much. Thanks for mentioning it. I loved the music from that era. They were fabulous songwriters and musicians who really cared for their craft. You don't see that anymore. 

 

In a similar vein:  Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice  

It is a documentary by CNN Films, and is currently available for rent on Prime Video and YouTube TV.  At some point, Amazon will probably move it to the Prime free list. I saw it on CNN when it was released, and it is an excellent presentation of her entire career.

@MaVolta 

 

I have seen the Linda Ronstadt show and enjoyed it very much.

I like many other young men of that time had a crush on her.

Such an amazing voice!!

I watched on ESPN last night The Eagles

in concert Live at the Forum from 2018.
In the new line up 
now is Vince Gill and

Glenn Freys son Deacon, who looks and

sounds a lot like his Dad. They did a nice

tribute to Glenn and performed all

their hits. It was an excellent show

and it’s on YouTube also.

Sad news today:  Benjamin Keough, son of Lisa Marie Presley and musician, Danny Keough, has died at the age of 27. He was the grandson of Elvis and Priscilla Presley. No details have been made public. As one might imagine, the family is devastated.  RIP.

Hey, just wondering if anybody else is having problems with the Song Title Word Association game, or is it just me? When I go to it, the last response I can see says July 10, 2020 at 11:12 PM, but now all the Reply buttons are grayed out, so you can't add anything. Or at least I can't. Did we break it somehow? 😳
