The Falcon’s Nest Three Way: Johnny Ace

Posted by falconi5 on August 3, 2011

A little different spin on the Falcon’s Nest Three Way

After touring for a year, Ace had been performing at the City Auditorium in Houston, Texas on Christmas 1954. During a break between sets, he was playing with a .22 cal revolver. Members of his band said he did this often, sometimes shooting at roadside signs from their car.

It was widely reported that Ace killed himself playing Russian roulett. Big Mama Thornton’s bass player Curtis Tillman, however, who witnessed the event, said, “I will tell you exactly what happened! Johnny Ace had been drinking and he had this little pistol he was waving around the table and someone said ‘Be careful with that thing…’ and he said ‘It’s okay! Gun’s not loaded…see?’ and pointed it at himself with a smile on his face and ‘Bang!’ – sad, sad thing. Big Mama ran outta that dressing room yelling ‘Johnny Ace just killed himself!”

Paul Simon ” The Afterlife”

Posted by falconi5 on February 18, 2011

Typically the Nest Poo Poos “Dinosaur” artists like Paul Simon when they come out with a new album.  We see it as a money grab or a “I need to pay for another ex wife” grab, or in the case of Rod Stewart a “I need to pay for another baby” grab.  What we have seen so far in the form of two songs from Paul Simon’s April release “So Beautiful or So What” may be causing us to eat these words in 60 days.  And besides we love his wife Edie Brickell.
