Rock n Roll will stand, my money did not

Posted by Aussie Trekkie, 24 September 2008 · 3 views

Well readers, it is now Thursday (at least in Australia it is) and nothing has changed yet even stranger is that i haven't heard a word since Saturday from my friend which is very unusual but theres nothing that can be done about it right now although i hope i am not right when i sense that something is terribly wrong

On the bright side the mail came today and i got Medal of Honor: Vanguard and the record Johnny O'Keefe: Live in Concert now Johnny O'Keefe was Australia's first big rock n roll star whose version of "Shout Part 1 and 2" in my opinion is vastly superior to the Isley Brothers version which was released a year or so earlier, there is a great energy in the performance like he gives everything he has in him and although some people said he sounded like a concrete mixer, this man was the King of Australian Rock another favourite track is "She's So Tough" and finally "Sing Sing Sing"

It seems i talk alot about music, basically Music and Star Trek are my two best things i have although i can't play music myself apart from the top string on a guitar but i know when my brother plays it i can sense if he is playing too fast or too slow and then keep listening until he gets it sounding right........my brother wanted a guitar badly to replace a $120 one from Target which sounded bad, the strings rusted and it was very heavy to use and he picked this guitar at a shop he said it was a great guitar and we said if it was $160 okay get it then he comes home with it costing $180 (of my money!) and it had a string missing too! So i had to pay money for six new strings thankfully my brothers friend Cole is a good guitarist knows how to string up a guitar so i saved some money thankfully and i been making sure my brother uses that guitar good and proper because it cost me alot and i want to see rewards.

This is for the metal music fans of Trekunited, this group is from a town called Deniliquin in the state of NSW and they are called Detravine (pronounced Detra-veen)
you can even download their music at myspace.com/detravine and of course you can even be their friends and this song is called A.O.C and you can view it here

I should note i was partly educated in Deniliquin (years 4 to 6 at Deniliquin North Public School and Years 7 and 12 at Deniliquin High) and one of the guitarists is a friend of mine but honestly they do deserve some recognition because playing Metal music in a Country town must be a tough thing to do because of the location you have to go at least two hours south to a place that has a bigger metal music base (Albury/Wodonga) and the town has also been struggling to maintain a music festival for several years which limits their choices of big crowd concerts apart from a show called Night of Darkness that happens twice or more times a year in the towns RSL Club (attracts over 100 fans)

Thats it readers, enjoy the music and give some thoughts if you like
talk to me and i talk to you




update: I got a message from my friends boyfriend, it seems Beck got into a car accident she is okay but needs some surgery hopefully her unborn kid is alright........more details as it comes to hand

Also i been asked if $20 a week repayments will be ok, i guess i can accept that but anything extra will be great

AT, sympathy, caring, support, concern - all these things cost nothing but show that you are a good friend. Paying you back the money they owe you before asking you for more money is what a friend would do for you. If they ask for more money before the past money has been paid then they are not friends.

I saw Johnny O'Keefe in concert in West Wyalong thirty years ago!

It's nearly the 30th Anniversary of his death, October 6 1978 i think he died a week after appearing on the music show Sounds i seen a bit of that show on Youtube.........Ahh Youtube the only way to see shows like YTT, Sounds, Countdown and other great shows of past decades beats reading books and seeing still pictures about them.
