For those of you who felt Sean Spicer's presser today sounded a little "familiar"

Las Vegas Sun: "Over 1 million join anti-Trump womens marches worldwide"

Over 1 million join anti-Trump women’s marches worldwide


WASHINGTON — In a global exclamation of defiance and solidarity, more than 1 million people rallied at women's marches in the nation's capital and cities around the world Saturday to send President Donald Trump an emphatic message on his first full day in office that they won't let his agenda go unchallenged.

Many of the women came wearing pink, pointy-eared "pussyhats" to mock the new president. Plenty of men joined in, too, contributing to surprising numbers everywhere from New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Los Angeles to Mexico City, Paris, Berlin, London, Prague and Sydney.

The outpouring served to underscore the degree to which Trump has unsettled people in both hemispheres.

"We march today for the moral core of this nation, against which our new president is waging a war," actress America Ferrera told the Washington crowd. "Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack, and a platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday. But the president is not America. ... We are America, and we are here to stay."

Mike Kellie, Drummer for Spooky Tooth, Dies
By Dave Lifton January 21, 2017 11:42 AM

Mike Kellie, who was a founder of both Spooky Tooth and the Only Ones and had a lengthy career as a session drummer, working with the likes of George Harrison, Peter Frampton and Traffic, died on Thursday, Jan. 18. He was 69.

The news came via the Facebook page of John Perry of the Only Ones. “We are deeply saddened to learn of the death of our friend and colleague Mike Kellie,” he wrote. “Kellie learned of his illness last summer but, characteristically, chose to keep the diagnosis private. We will post more, personal, appreciations in due course but for the moment we’ll recall the 40 years of music-making we shared with him. A gentleman, a friend and a fine musician. Our thoughts are with his family.”

Born March 24, 1947 in Birmingham, England, Kellie said in a 2013 interview that he “was always fascinated by drums” and began playing them around the age of 14. He tooled around with various local bands, including one called the Locomotive, which featured Chris Wood on saxophone and flute. When Wood left to form Traffic with Steve Winwood, they recommended Kellie to a London band called the V.I.P.s that briefly contained Keith Emerson. His departure prompted them to change their named to Art, and they released Supernatural Fairy Tales in 1967. The arrival of Gary Wright, who later had success with “Dream Weaver,” that October led to another name change, and Spooky Tooth was born.

Spooky Tooth broke up in 1970 after four records with that name. Around that time he began establishing himself as a session drummer, appearing on the debut albums by Joe Cocker, Peter Frampton and Splinter, a group produced by George Harrison. He also played on the soundtrack to the film adaptation of the Who’s Tommy and Traffic’s The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys. He rejoined Spooky Tooth in 1973 for a couple of years, a stint that brought future Foreigner star Mick Jones into the fold.

Heres Why You Can Thank (or Blame) Meat Loaf for Donald Trumps Presidency

Here’s Why You Can Thank (or Blame) Meat Loaf for Donald Trump’s Presidency

That’s one conclusion you can draw from the above video, in which the “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” singer convinces Donald Trump to run for president. The impromptu conversation took place during a 2011 episode of Trump’s NBC reality show The Celebrity Apprentice.

After Trump tells the contestants that “everybody is saying” he should run for president, he specifically asks Meat Loaf for his opinion. “Absolutely!” the Bat Out of Hell star replies. “I would vote for you. In fact, I’ll help you with your campaign.”

Four years later, Trump formally announced his entry into the 2016 Presidential election. This past November, he stunned many political experts — and drew strong reactions from the music community — when he defeated Hillary Clinton to become the 45th leader of the free world.

Despite completely and infamously melting down over some missing art supplies, Meat Loaf survived until the second-to-last episode of the 2011 competition. In that regard, he beat out fellow rock star Celebrity Apprentice alumni such as Gene Simmons (voted out in week three back in 2008), but fell short of the high standard set by Poison singer Bret Michaels, who won the 2010 edition of the program.
