ALSO, in unrelated but just as important news: I am breaking one of my own cardinal rules of blogging, which is to say I am adding an unproven blogger to the Illustrious Roll of Peeps in my sidebar. Normally I insist people blog a week or two before I add them - just ask Steeno or Adam, who sweated it out for days, wondering if they would make the cut.
Today, I am setting that rule aside in this case: The John Loux.
John has the distinction of leaving the best comment in the history of my blog earlier today, albiet under his wife's blogger account (which is a special kind of lame...):
Yes, indeed Steve "the steve green", sang on the first Whiteheart album. Along with the Huff Bros (Dan and David), Dan going on to be the biggest session player in LA in the 80's and 90's and who has since gone on to become the biggest producer in country music today. David went on to play with Michael W. Smith, back on the "Eye to Eye" and "Big Picture" world tours, and then went on to form the band Giant with his brother Dan, which had a number one single "I'll See You in My Dreams" on secular radio. Gary Lunn, the bass player, went on to do studio work and then to play bass with Don Potter at Morningstar. The Founding memebers of Whiteheart, Billy Smiley and Mark Girshmell, stayed consistently in Whiteheart, and brought on people like Tommy SImms, who went on to play with Springsteen for a tour; Rick Florian; and the now drummer for Ketih Urban.I am giving him an exemption and immediately linking him based on two things - one, his wife, Tracie, started blogging recently and is doing well at it, and two, I hope to pressure him into blogging intently.
Sheila E played percussion for Prince for a period of time, not to be confused with Sheena Easton, who every school boy was in love with back in junior high.
Steve Green didn't like singing rock, that's why he left.
Mr Bohlender, please do not attempt to shut out a genius of completely useless facts from your blog from now on. I may not know much, but what I do know is music from the 80's, oh an how to groom a freakishly cool mullet. Now I will gladly step down from the lofty position that I have put placed myself in as "mr know it all", if someone can tell me the name of the "other guy" in Wham, not George Michael.
THE JOHN LOUX
So go there, flood his blog, leave comments, and let the blogging begin.
