You should be sad. I did see him in concert. He *opened* for B. B. King at the Hollywood Bowl. What a concert that was...

Jeez, I saw Jeff Lynne years back at the Schubert Theater with ELO. The opening act was supposed to be Robin Trower and instead we got Fleetwood Mac. Of course this was before Stevie Nicks and they weren't very welcomed by the audience. I'm sure it was a low point for the band.

Actually, I as just looking at the Wiki for Fleetwood Mac and it's entirely possible I got to see the "fake" Fleetwood Mac. What the hell did I know, I think I was in ninth grade at that point.

Excerpt from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fleetw...2.80.931974.29

"The fake Fleetwood Mac (1974)[edit]
In 1974, the band's manager, Clifford Davis, then claimed that he owned the name Fleetwood Mac, and recruited members of a band called Legs (which had recently issued one single under Davis' management)[26] to tour as Fleetwood Mac.

The fake Fleetwood Mac consisted of Elmer Gantry (vocals, guitar), Kirby Gregory (guitar), Paul Martinez (bass), John Wilkinson (keyboards) and Australian-born drummer Craig Collinge (formerly of The Librettos, Procession and Third World War). Fans were told that Bob Welch and John McVie had quit the group, and that Mick Fleetwood and Christine McVie would be joining the band at a later date. The members of the fake Fleetwood Mac apparently had been told that Mick Fleetwood would join them on later dates, and averred that Fleetwood had been involved in the early planning stages of the tour before dropping out.[27]

As the tour got underway, Fleetwood Mac's road manager, John Courage, realised that the line-up being used wasn't authentic. Courage ended up hiding the real Fleetwood Mac's equipment, which helped shorten the tour by the fake band, which soon dissolved. But the lawsuit that followed—regarding who actually owned the rights to the band name "Fleetwood Mac"—put the real Fleetwood Mac out of commission for almost a year. While the band was named after Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, they had signed contracts that showed the band forfeited the rights to the name."

One of the Cellars prodigal sons? home.
I remember every once in awhile a DJ would talk about the Fleetwood Mac story as it happened. Of course with legal crap it can be months before the next shoe drops so it sounded very confusing getting snippets as it developed.

Y.A. Tittle

1926 - 2017

In the above pic, Tittle just had the slobber knocked out of him by John Baker of the Pittsburgh Steelers (perhaps you've heard of them?), after throwing a Pick Six interception. He suffered a concussion, and a cracked sternum, but managed to finish the season, his 17th, and, final.

That photograph became one of three that hung in the lobby of The Press Photographers Association, alongside the Raising Of The Flag On Iwo Jima, and the Hindenburg Disaster. A copy now hangs in the Football Hall Of Fame.

Stan Kowalski died on Oct 20.

No, not the guy who yelled "STELLLLLLLLAAAAAAA!!!!!", the wrestler.

No, not the wrestler Killer Kowlaski. His name was Walter.

The other wrestler. Tiny Mills' tag team partner.
