Berkeley, CA

For all those mama boys out there who keep picking on people who pass through and/or are natively from Berkeley, California:


Now, shut up and listen!

Just happen to have an old Peavey CS800 power amp and a pr of Yamaha PA spkrs plugged into the sound card. Not the usual here but handy for this link. I think I saw a clip light flash at one point.
I got to unhook this before I do more damage.

You're not kiding, are you?
I was thinking almost the same. I have a SWR 12" workingman right here. But I think I better try and run a wire from the headphone outlet to the stereo system.

So, why do you have those PA spkrs? You're playing something?

How do you like the drummer?
Nice punch, great timing .... Check out the size of the bass drum! That's the kind of bass drum you hardly hear, but you sure feel it!!!

And ofcourse the bass is great too, I wonder if this is a semi-resonance bass guitar, it looks like it.

Yeah, that's a new development all right.

Unless of course, you count all the people over the last 30 or 40 years hungry for someone to thumb their nose at so they can elevate their wounded sense of self and civic glory.

BTW, I was in Sunnyvale/Santa Clara t'other day. Lord help us, let me out of this place if I can figure the streets out. If it wasn't non-descript neighborhoods near industrial areas, it was soul-less banks of apt. buildings. Shopping malls and chain stores wherever I look. And then the damned Lawrence Expressway, a freeway with traffic lights. Oh boy.

I'll take Berkeley any day to those burgs. Chain store/franchises are kept at a distance in B-town, very few of them, instead we have locally run stores and restaurants -- some of the best coffee houses I've found in the bay. Now that I'm living in Redwood City (my heart's still in Berkeley) I've been forced to go to Starbucks often as not. I much prefer Peet's or the two Roma coffee shops in Berkeley -- better coffee and much nicer atmosphere.

BTW, didja hear about the new restaurant on the moon? Great food but no atmosphere.

CCR was a good band, in the very late 60's and early 70's and "Lookin'Out My Back Door" and "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" were favorites songs of mine....

"Who'll Stop The Rain" and "Fortunate Son" are songs of theirs I really, really like, also, and they had a message in them, too....

I have the idea they actually were actually from El Cerrito, near Richmond, and not Berkeley, but am not sure of it.

In any case, they are closely associated with Berkeley, and their musical career really got going there. I don't know where in Berkeley they played, though, back then. Maybe the Greek?

The SF Peninsula and south bay area...

My condolences. I spent time living in Redwood City, and knew its neighborhoods well. It simply is what it is. I did not regret moving from there to the City. I made the best of it while I was there, used to run on the Parcourse at Canada College, and took a bunch of Real Estate courses there.

Santa Clara/Sunnyvale is just an area attached to San Jose. It is the heart of the Biotech industry and the Silicon Valley. I can't stand the place. Compared to SF and Berkeley, it is sheer hell. Purgatory, at least.

In fact, the only place on the entire peninsula I could even stand was the area around Stanford University, and the downtowns of Palo Alto and Menlo Park, and if forced to go, the Stanford Shopping Center. A handful of exotic car dealers if you know where to look for them.

Rest of it can go hang, so far as I am concerned

John Fogerty is an American icon. He, like only a few others, introduced and brought roots of modern America to the rest of the World. His music stands for what most people, esp. those who never have been here, think the US is like.

I can't say enough about him, although, he's only human just like the rest of us. He too, will have to say goodbye when the day comes.

Oh well. So what? It's old local history. That sign's been up for God knows how long.

The redwoods, a few, are up in the hilly parts of the outer reaches of RC.

A little hint:

Watch how John salutes to the drummer, at the end of the song!
{In the last 30 seconds, between the last chord and the final wrap.}

Damn Lefties!
