Classic Rock Bottom

I did this show a couple of years ago, so when you hear me say it is America's 236th Birthday, substitute 238th- on the day the Declaration Of Independence (my favorite document ever!) was approved and ratified.
Older than me, but I'm pretty damned independent too!
I had long had this idea for an opening set for a 4th Of July show, and I finally remembered to do it!
As you well know, it was July 4, 1776 when we declared our Independence from Great Britain.
Much had taken place here in the Colonies since the end of the French & Indian War, leading up to this courageous breakup with the then world's strongest power, England.
So naturally I will start off with a British band, lol!
All kidding aside, the opener was irresistible.
From Rock to Folk to Soul and things in between, it's Music about Revolution and the Aftermath, in this opening Chapter for Independence Day.
Listen to the words, think, and enjoy!

Jon is one of those people your Mom warned you about.

Running around with a BAD crowd...especially from Detroit, LOL!

Jon steered me in the wrong direction again!!!  When will I ever learn not to listen to him

Comment by Mike Pell on July 1, 2014 at 9:54pm


But Scott had it right, Tracy Chapman, in his past comments.

I think he was just stunned that he had to pick a rerun to listen to, lol!

Does Jon RULE, or does he just have RULES, LOL?

I think you'll enjoy it, Pt.5 even more, which I've done.

Haven't gone beyond that yet, so even I don't know what is to come.

Everyone knows that was Tracy Chapman (except Scott, of course). Just letting him know the full name and correct spelling for future use.

Those were the best comments since you liked everything, but once again I must insist The Beatles DID hang the moon, I was there, lol!
For me, it was good to hear I'm The Man Who Built The Bridges again.
I remember now, you told me about Coverville- I bookmarked it and go there every now and then.
Now as I always say, you are under no obligation to write, but did you listen to Love & Marriage Part 4?
Thanks for the possible re-listen to this, and re-writing, lol,
