Where was the USA Representation in France’s Soladarity Rally Sunday?

France Unity Rally

 

When you can get Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas to attend and march in unity with all the bad blood between the two at war with each other, joining 50 world leaders along with millions of people. I can’t be the only one asking where in the hell was President Obama?

Charlie Hebdo magazine shooting

 

Marching along with French President Francois Hollande, UK Prime Minister David Cameron, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Jordan’s King Abdullah II, Queen Rania, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the list goes on and on.

But no President Obama or Vice President Joe Biden, S.O.S. John Kerry, neither speaker John Boehner or Mitch McConnell.

My God, Attorney General Eric Holder was there for a meeting and he wouldn’t even join in the march with the other heads of State. The lone person? Ambassador to France Jane Hartley and who would know of her?

Johnny Winters Gig In Heaven, Jamming Forever.

Johnny Winters

 

Again it is with great sadness that another great gigantic talent of the Woodstock era has left us. More than that Johnny was among the Blue’s best guitarists.

The song playing just has some great memories attached to it. It was on the juke box of my tribe of freak friends favorite coney island hangout in the early 70s. It seemed every single group that walked in played it thus we got to hear it over & over. We never got sick of hearing that ripping intro Johnny was famous for…Rock and Roll!!!

Over the years he never slowed down, he just kept turning one generation after the next on to the blues. A passionate flame that would never go out. Not even now or until the end of time, the blues that blistered out of him like lightning from Woodstock on will burn bright.

Got to know brother Edgar is hurting real bad right now but he has plenty of company. My heart goes out to him and the rest of his family, friends and fans. He was a very instrumental part of one of the best era’s for R&R and a blues revival ever witnessed & heard.

Johnny Winters has left the earth but not our minds, ears or hearts. He will be remembered forever.

God Speed
