Lubbock scraps Holly name at two sites
LUBBOCK, Texas - Don't plan on strolling down the Buddy Holly Walk of Fame the next time you're in his West Texas birthplace. The City Council has rescinded a 1995 resolution that created the name.
The vote came Thursday after Civic Lubbock Inc, a nonprofit group created by the city in 1956, faced a dispute with Holly's widow, Maria Elena Holly, over payment for the use of the rocker's name at the Walk of Fame and Buddy Holly Terrace.
Holly died in 1959. His widow had been seeking a licensing agreement and name usage fees for the two sites.
Dan Burns, president of Civic Lubbock, estimated the payment could have been ... continue reading

Concert review: Roots ‘n’ Rock, 12 januari 2007, Brussels
It was rather hard to find the place where the gig was, no sign or anything at the door, but we got there eventually. Thanx to Tom and Yve for the ride.
The place filled up nicely and after a while it was time for the first band: The Legendary Johnny Trash. For Koen, Mark, Beire & Angelo this was there first gig as this band, but that didn’t show at all. The band can best be described as the best of Koen’s career and add a few new songs.
On their play list: “Rockabilly Rumble”, “TrashJodel Intro”, “Here comes Johnny”, “The World's Most Happy Man”, “Cotton Pickin'”, “Rainy Night”, “White Trash Valentine”, “Ace Of Spades”, “The Devil In ... continue reading

Concert review: The Groovy Rednecks @ Den Bromfiets, 7/01/2007
Another Sunday afternoon in Bonheiden, the quiet little town was turned into Redneck town by these 5 guys from Hollywood USA. They play a kind of music that’s described by them as Beer-drenched roots-driven ass-grabbin'music, that'll put some dick in Dixie! And that’s exactly how it felt.
On their playlist: “Bartender’s daughter”, “White Ring”, “ Four Shots”, “ Drinkin Every night” , “Bring a Beer”, “ My wife got hit by a truck”, " Baby's Tab"
No pics this time.
