Article of the Bardin Booger

The grocery store that was mentioned is incorrect. It’s Bud’s Grocery and always has been.I find it quite disrespectful and misleading. If that was corrected I’d feel much better. I’ve grown up in Bardin for the last 20 years and my family has been long time residents. Thank you for your time.

CD Review (THANKS!)

This message is for Carl Gauze. I’d like to sincerely thank you for the great review of my record “Silhouette.” I would have sent a message earlier, but I just now found the review. I’m currently working on a new record, and hopefully we can stay in touch. I’d love to send you a copy when it’s done. Thanks again!

Carl Gauze’s ineptitude

From his column on Live in Gdansk: “Looking old and grizzled, Gilmore, Waters and their back-up men play as if this might be their last show.” Carl, beyond the lack of first-reference first name for Roger Waters, you should know that he and David have a long-running feud, and the idea of him playing Gilmour solo compositions is beyond ridicule. But damn, son, you haven’t a clue. The brother from Floyd is keyboardist Rick Wright, who died just prior to the release of the album. Try harder, son …

Carl’s response: Gosh, Mom, I really WAS trying. I’m fully aware of the feud, and I’m also aware they partially made up prior to this show. Perhaps it was a real reconciliation, or maybe they just needed the cash, but in the vast pantheon of strange rock and roll bedfellows, Roger playing David’s material is no more unlikely that John Fogarty playing Proud Mary after his battles.
