very cool

i am truly amazed that you knew that - no - not evil except that you support slavery or whatever other stigma society wants to stick to you - i wish i could fully get into slave songs and spirituals, because they are close to my life AND they are so bed-rock foundational to rock-and-roll

i used to listen to gospel music on sunday mornings - incredible! and i also had tapes of tribal african music - which is good to have - but it wears thin after a few listens

but i was a BIG fan of south african pop and nigerian high-life, which comes through in my fav all-time band, the english beat - as well as through Paul Simon's Graceland - i saw lady black mombozo in concert - or whatever they're called

it fascinates my curiosity how this music, which prolly came through haiti, apparently had a big influence on new orleans zaidaco (sp?) and also dixieland and the blues

but you can't neglect the irish/celtic influences either - which was a big influence on reggae and ska, which most people don't see - and of course it influenced cajun music

for these reasons, I LOVE AMERICA!

You got diamonds on de souls of ya shoes?

YES! I agree! I was raised in a music loving family. My dad was an aspiring singer/song writer and in Nashville, where I grew up, we were surrounded by music at all times. Dad was a DJ for years, as was my grandfather and my uncle. I guess it's just in me and I couldn't imagine not loving music as much as I do.

Re: You got diamonds on de souls of ya shoes?

i was an aspiring singer-songwriter - i've written tonnes of stupid songs - i decided not to do the irish rock band thing - wouldn't have worked right now

you are so lucky to have a musical family!
