I believe that the Hunter trial opens what should be a very productive line of investigation

Set up an AI search to match drug/alcohol rehab registrations and cross reference that data to firearm purchase background checks.

Since the GOP is positive that this is a crime worthy of a trial (despite Hunter already agreeing to plead guilty) there shouldn't be any pushback on prosecuting hundreds, if not thousands of folks who illegally purchased firearms while addicted to drugs or alcohol.

Truly a silver lining

Musicians called Shorty.

Jimi Hendrix's brother-in-law and longtime electric blues monster, Guitar Shorty

New Orleans' own Trombone Shorty. With another of my favorites, Warren Haynes

Ladies and gents, Shorty!
These guys are the reason for this thread if I'm being honest.
I was searching for a Trombone Shorty song and this band came up in the results

Sunday morning, let's listen to some organ music, why don't we? It's like church. Rueben Wilson, "Blue Mode"

The band is magic too:
Drums: Tommy Derrick, Guitar: Melvin Sparks, Tenor Saxophone: John Manning.

Of course, Rueben on the organ

Friday night play list - So what's in my headphones to start Friday night?

Buffalo Nichols - who my wife and I watched perform an all-acoustic set - just him and a fiddle player - at The Old Rock House in St Louis just last month.

Danielle Nicole thread.

I have been a super fan for years.
Welp, I may as well start here.

She was once the bassist and vocalist in a family band called Trampled Under Foot.
My wife and I saw this band a lot, they used to come to St Louis 4 or 5 times a year and. if we were free that night? We went.
Every time it was possible to see 'em we did.
Danielle and her 2 brothers were a genuine, badass, regional blues rock band.

So, we've, been fans for a decade plus.
She rocks now, and she rocked back then too.

&si=Bsap1mmEn5Buykp5

I want to point she's a dead solid bassist and a better than average song writer too.

The Ugly Kings. Australian hard rock that's worth a listen

https://music.
&si=LY7J0mclNOKKZXTE

I know I shared this one before, not many bands have the stones to rework a David Bowie song like this.

https://music.
&si=FYp6u85mtwuu6zjL

This video is what grabbed ahold of me and made me follow the Ugly Kings around the old series of tubes. The song is cool too
