Greetings and salutations, good people. I've been on vacation for the past week, down at Emerald Isle, so I'll be in catch-up mode for the next few days. While I work on that, I can pass along word that Aerosmith's North Carolina shows have been moved from the "postponed" column to "canceled" due to frontman Steven Tyler's recent shoulder injury from falling off a stage in South Dakota; and also that the legendary Memphis musician/producer/raconteur Jim Dickinson has passed on, leaving behind a legacy of great records and fantastic tales. May he rest in peace.
I'll be back soon. In the meantime, here's a little something to help you pass the time.
ADDENDUM (8/18/09): Another Dickinson obit.
