:roll: Craig ,and Bread fans ; :roll:
:roll: Don't shoot me for the next ;

Craig ,The Airplaneman...

Who draws the crowd and asked about
baby it's the Airplaneman...

Who's gonna steal the show
you know baby it's the Airplaneman...

He can make you love it
he can make you cry but he doesn't...

He will bring you fun
then he'll make you smile...

Page after page who treats you right,
baby it's the Airplaneman...

Nothin' on the radio,
you go read some from the Airplaneman...

Then you listen to the music and read a lot
You want to get the meaning out
of each and every song...

Then you find yourself a message and some nice
words from the Airplaneman...

Then the lights begin to flicker
and the sound is getting dim...
The voice begins to falter and the crowds
are getting thin but he never seems to notice
he's just got to find another place to write
Anyway Got to write ,anyway Got to write...

(original is from ; Bread - The Guitarman)

Thanks for the cool song

Hi Chasin Destiny:

Thanks for the cool song lyrics. I'll call David Gates and ask if he liked it as much as I did.

You are the best,
CF

A little impression from the book...
On page 442...some nice words...
from Paul Kantner...about Grace !...

Craig did ask ;
When Signe left, if Grace had not agreed to join
the band where there other choises you had in mind ?

Paul answered ;
Fortunately Grace filled that opening nicely well.
Timing was everything in those days.It worked out
nicely, i would think.There weren't any singers any
better than Grace on the horizon.Grace was my
particular fascination.There wasn't a better singer
in San Francisco ,Janis included.There weren't
any better singers that could have filled that spot
in our band.......

Great !...Nice words Paul !...Good question Craig !...
Grace Rulez !!!... :roll: ...

Grace is the one!

Hi Chasin' Destiny:

Thansk for posting the blurb about Paul's feeling toward Grace about being the best!

Grace was the perfect person for the job!

Be well,
CF

Hope you are well and happy holiday season.

David Gates must wish he could write such lyrics!

Here is an old rhyme for Chasin'Destiny:

I never understood the way you helped us, the way you could
Protecting us and your own beautiful neighborbood
We are the children, playing in the streets,
And you are the gardener, diggin' all the weeds......
So please be the father of this forum, until the earth will explode..
Don't forget this rhyme, the one I just wrote
If there was an election, you'll certainly got my vote

What a truly excellent and complete book. It makes me want to go and listen to all those concert tapes! I especially like the way it ends with the rememberances of Skip Spence and Spencer. That was a very lovely and touching thing to do.
