This blog spot is the home to my ramblings. I am a free lance writer. Most of my work goes on Associated Content. Sometimes I write what is on my mind, sometimes I plug some of my writing, and sometimes a combination of the two. So, sit back read, enjoy, and we will see where it goes.
Chester Bennington was a successful frontman for the band Linkin Park. The band won two Grammy Awards and have sold over 70 million albums. Fame, fortune, success can't outrun personal demons. Hopefully Bennington who was 41 can rest in peace.
Here is their latest hit "Heavy" and the news was heavy...
Here is "Numb"...
"In the End"
What is your favorite Linkin Park song? Any memories you want to share? Feel free to comment in the comments. A sad loss a another rocker has passed away.
Starting out with a lovin' confession. The reason I picked the Grateful Dead version was because it featured the late great Lowell George on lead vocals. The battle was close to the anniversary of his death. Lowell George was the frontman for Little Feat.
Someone vote for The Rascals. Votes were slow to come in. The Battle was decided on the 11th by a vote from Birgit!

Sometimes you have to ask yourself what Bob would do. The Battle of the Bands being moved to once a month. I missed the memo and since I did one on the first, I thought about sitting this one out. Then I realize I enjoy putting together these Battles. Life, work, writing, even the bloghops change. Heck even Bob Dylan changes his own darn songs.
The Times They Are A Changin' is the song this time around.
Don't vote for Bob Dylan version:

Yes today was 7-11 Day where you could get a free Slurpee from 7-Eleven. Would have been nice to have a free refreshingly cool beverage treat on a hot summer day. However, the nearest 7-Eleven is over four hours away. In some places the event even made the news...
So did you enjoy a Slurpee today? Do you have a 7-Eleven nearby?
