Mickey Baker of Mickey and Sylvia, dies at 87

By Valerie J. Nelson, Los Angeles Times
December 3, 2012

Mickey Baker, an exceptional 1950s session guitarist who played on hundreds of recordings, helping to transform rhythm and blues into rock 'n' roll, died Tuesday at his home near Toulouse, France, according to French media reports. He was 87.

A cause of death was not disclosed.

Baker "was the first great rock and roll guitarist," rock historian Dave Marsh wrote in 1989 in "The Heart of Rock and Roll: The 1001 Greatest Singles Ever Made." The sassy "Love Is Strange" was one of them.

Rolling Stone once called the recording Baker's "crowning achievement." He performed the 1957 hit as a duet with Sylvia Vanderpool, who took guitar lessons from him and soon determined they could succeed as a duo.

As Mickey & Sylvia, they came up with the million-selling "Love Is Strange" at their second session. Bo Diddley had written the song but passed it along to them because he was angry with his music publishers because they never paid him enough, Marsh wrote.

interesting note:
Since the late 1960s, Baker had mainly devoted himself to writing instructional guitar books and CDs, including a widely used two-volume book on jazz guitar. A biography on Frank Zappa said the guitarist had learned to play from one of Baker's how-to books.

Third Eagle of the Apocalypse Offers Post-Election K-Pop Antichrist Analysis

Third Eagle of the Apocalypse and Co-Prophet of the End-Times William Tapley wasn't surprised that Obama won the election. As he notes 13 seconds into this video, he predicted it:
I called the last two elections in the United States, 100% correct. Can you name any other so-called prophet on the YouTube who's done the same. I don't think so.

But even though Obama won, he won't last out his term:
You Democrats, you who think you can deny God three times at your convention and that Satan will, therefore allow you to have the leopard for four more years, you are sadly mistaken. In Daniel 7, the Antichrist is the one who follows the Leopard and he will come next. And Satan wants to bring the Antichrist in as soon as possible. Believe me we have very little time left.

We know this because:
Four years ago Barack Obama was elected on the 4th of November. This week he was re-elected on the 6th of November. The number 4 announced the arrival of Leopard, but the number six this week is announcing the arrival of the Antichrist.

So who is the Antichrist?
Many times God has already revealed who Barack Obama is through sporting events...This time however, God has changed His plan. He is announcing the Antichrist through popular music.
