Why can't anyone EVER spell it right?!


Neil blows 'em away eight different ways and they stopped having anything to say after 1978 - but at least spell their freakin' name the way they meant it to be!! It's not NEAL Young either or any of the other lame ways I've seen it spelled!
If you're going to write - LEARN HOW TO SPELL THINGS! (Unless, of course you're from the South or a Republican or both, in which's all right - we understand...)
Thank You. I feel better now!

Hmmm....interesting version... especially the start...
For the astute "rockin in the free worlder", you would notice he leaves out a chord on the opening riff but I do like the echoed lyrics at the start..some things change but stay the same!..still an awesome anthemic song no matter how he does it!!

That Alternet article creeps me out. Gives me the heebies. Eeeeg!

Well, lookin' forward to Trunk Show. I thought Heart of Gold was really nice, and Trunk's apparently got lots of CD2 stuff on it.

And Lynyrd Skynyrd deserves to have their name misspelled for making it so durn confusing in the first place!

I mean, sheesh, man, seriously.

Dear Anon:
Nobody spells Dwight Yoakam's name right either.... maybe if he wasn't perceived as a hat-act country singer there would be no association with 'hokum' - but that's just a theory.

Always good to see Skynyrd mentioned, great band Ronnie van Zant absolute genius!
Anyone know when Trunk Show is scheduled to be released in the UK?
Thanks. Sean

I feel like a truly ignorant individual for not being too fond of Anthony's videos.

At 8/14/2009 09:19:00 PM, Blogger doc said...

Thrash, please get a sense of humour, or was that a bit poltically incorrect to publish?
Gee its all just a bit of fun..who was going to be offended.The Koreans? Some of my best fliends are Koreans!!!

I for one would like to see more of your footage.

And I think you're a nice guy. And that's OK.

Hi Doc,

Here's a suggestion for you that just might work. See here.


At 8/15/2009 10:28:00 PM, Blogger doc said...

So Thrash, am I reading this right?
Is this a polite way to tell me to F%^&k off with all your silly shit and blog to Mr "nobody".. or am I being too obtuse?

At 8/15/2009 10:53:00 PM, Blogger Thrasher said...

doc - yes, you are obtuse.

Anthony Crawford is one creative individual. And his songs great, not to be overlooked. I, for one. hope that he changes his mind on making this the final episode. I want more!

I didn't get to see your rejected comments. Obtuse = insensitive. Be careful.

"Oh help me, please doctor, I'm damaged
There's a pain where there once was a heart
It's sleepin, it's a beatin'
Can't ya please tear it out, and preserve it
Right there in that jar?"
