Robert Plant

Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters are going to be at Kaaboo on Sunday!  How many more times will we have a chance to see him play live in San Diego? Here is the band playing a Led Zeppelin classic that probably has something to do with so many of us choosing to live here:

Spent my days with a woman unkind
Smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.
Made up my mind to make a new start
Going To California with an aching in my heart.
Someone told me there’s a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.
Took my chances on a big jet plane
Never let them tell you that they’re all the same.
The sea was red and the sky was grey
Wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
The mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
As the children of the sun began to awake.
Seems that the wrath of the Gods
Got a punch on the nose and it started to flow;
I think I might be sinking.
Throw me a line if I reach it in time
I’ll meet you up there where the path
Runs straight and high.
To find a queen without a king;
They say she plays guitar and cries and sings.
La la la la
Side a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
Tryin’ to find a woman who’s never, never, never been born.
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it’s not as hard, hard, hard as it seems
Songwriters: Jimmy Page / Robert Plant

Ed King, R.I.P.

Ed King started with the Strawberry Alarm Clock, but was best known as one of the three lead guitarists for Lynyrd Skynyrd (along with Allen Collins and Gary Rossington) – though he left after fights with Ronnie, claiming he was just a California hippie.  Here is a song that Ed wrote, and plays lead guitar:

In 1970 the Strawberry Alarm Clock appeared in the Russ Meyer cult classic film Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. By this time the band’s audience had mostly disappeared. They kept performing for some time, touring the South in 1970 and 1971 with Florida band Lynyrd Skynyrd opening for them. In the latter part of 1971, the group, now without a record label and in conflict over musical direction, opted to disband, with King deciding to relocate to the South and Gunnels joining the backup band for the Everly Brothers, alongside Waddy Wachtel and Warren Zevon. King was invited to join Lynyrd Skynyrd in November 1972 and accepted, becoming a member of that band from 1972 to 1975, then again from 1987 to 1996.

The Adolescents

Founding member and bassist of the Fullerton punk rock band The Adolescents Steve Soto passed away in his sleep on June 27th. While no official cause of death has been confirmed, friends, family, fans and members of numerous Orange County bands took to social media to express their grief over the loss of the 54-year-old who was widely known as the nice guy of punk rock.

The Adolescents’ official Twitter account simply posted: “With a heavy heart I share the passing of Steve Soto, my friend and bandmate since 1979. I don’t know what to do or to say. Goodbye my brother.”
