A RAW DEAL

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-FEB 6, 2020…ON THIS DAY IN 2001 GUITARIST DON FELDER RECEIVED A CALL FROM EAGLES MANAGER IRVING AZOFF TELLING HIM THE REST OF THE BAND HAS “DECIDED TO GO ON WITHOUT YOU.” THE DEFINING MOMENT CAME WHEN FELDER AND FREY GOT INTO AN ON STAGE FIGHT IN CONCERT. ACCORDING TO GLENN FREY “Things came to a head as the band wound up their 1980 tour with a benefit show in support of California senator Alan Cranston. According to Frey’s account, Mr Cranston came backstage before the concert to thank the band for their efforts, but Felder responded with a less-than-enthusiastic: “You’re welcome, Senator… I guess.” It led to a huge backstage row, with beer bottles smashed against the wall. “I felt Don Felder insulted Senator Cranston under his breath, and I confronted him with it,” said Frey. “So now we’re on stage, and Felder looks back at me and says, ‘Only three more songs till I kick your ass, pal.’ “We’re out there singing Best of My Love, but inside both of us are thinking, ‘As soon as this is over, I’m going to kill him.’

HERE’S SOME VIDEO OF FELDER PLAYING ‘HOTEL CALIFORNIA’ WITH SLASH

ELTON RELEASES BENNIE AND THE JETS

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-FEB 4, 2020…ON THIS DATE 46 YEARS AGO ELTON RELEASED ‘BENNIE AND THE JETS’ AS A SINGLE IN AMERICA. IRONICALLY, ELTON DIDN’T WANT TO RELEASE THIS SONG AS A SINGLE, THINKING THE TRACK WASN’T WORTHY OF BEING A SINGLE. AGAINST HIS WISHES, THE RECORD COMPANY RELEASED IT IN THE UNITED STATES. HE WAS SHOCKED WHEN IT WENT TO NUMBER 1, BECOMING ONE OF ELTON’S MOST SUCCESSFUL RECORDS. IN BRITAIN, IT WAS RELEASED AS A ‘“B-SIDE” TO ‘CANDLE IN THE WIND.’ HERE’S SOME WEIRD TRIVIA ON BENNIE AND THE JETS. IT IS SPELLED “BENNY” AND THE JETS ON THE ORIGINAL SINGLE SLEEVE. HOWEVER, ON THE ALBUM COVER, IT WAS SPELLED “BENNIE”, AND THEN “BENNY” ON THE ALBUM LABEL.

FLEETWOOD MAC RUMOURS

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-FEB 4, 2020…FORTY THREE YEARS AGO FLEETWOOD MAC RELEASED THE ICONIC ALBUM ‘RUMOURS’. IT WON THE GRAMMY AWARD FOR 1978’S ALBUM OF THE YEAR.

IN 2018 THE ALBUM WAS SELECTED BY THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS FOR PRESERVATION IN THE NATIONAL RECORDING REGISTRY, WITH THE ALBUM DEEMED ‘CULTURALLY, HISTORICALLY AND ARTISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT.’ THE ALBUM HAS SOLD OVER 40 MILLION COPIES WORLDWIDE, MAKING IT ONE OF THE BIGGEST SELLING ALBUMS OF ALL TIME.

GALLONS OF HOMEMADE BOOZE DISCOVERED BEFORE PRISON SUPER BOWL PARTY

Officers at Santa Rita jail confiscated hundreds of gallons of homebrew alcohol concocted by prisoners for a Super Bowl blowout party.

The concoction, called pruno, is commonly produced in prisons and jails by fermenting “fruit, sugar, water, and other common ingredients for several days in a sealed plastic bag.”

But it’s also a recipe for botulism, particularly since the process isn’t exactly sanitary.

Jail officers often find smaller stashes of the pungent homebrew alcohol, but learned prisoners were “going big” for the Super Bowl. No one will face charges for hiding the alcohol.

THANK YOU SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

Congrats and thank you to the San Francisco 49ers for an amazing season. Also, thank you the 49ers Faithful for supporting the team all year long.
