Splendor In The Glass | San Diego Reader

What’s Happening August 23-August 24, 2014 – PAHomepage.com

Homeless people or tourists who aren’t even here to see the glass work?” A guy named Marv, who I’m told used to do a lot of glass work, now works on his ’47 Chevy woody. I asked him about working on his woody. “When I got it, the brakes went out; the engine overheated. I put a lot of money into it. It’s worth $100,000 now.” I said, “You probably have a Club on the steering wheel.” He said, “I’m in the San Diego Woodies, which is the club I’ll probably be president of next year.” I explained what I meant by “Club,” and he told me car thieves don’t take cars that are so easily recognizable. He said, “We have a show in September in Encinitas with over 250 Woodies.

The forgotten Pete Townshend solo hit: ‘A Friend Is A Friend’ | Tampa Bay Times

At the top of the list of kids movies I’ve seen over the years is The Iron Giant and today’s Lost and Found is about Pete Townshend and the80s origins of The Iron Giant. By 1989, Pete Townshend had an established solo career away from The Who and decided his next project would be a concept music album adapting the 1968 Ted Hughes book The Iron Man in which Townshend played the part of the boy Hogarth. For the album The Iron Man: The Musical, Townshend created a video just for the song A Friend Is A Friend that shows his vision of what the Iron Man looked like. The album was adapted for the stage and the musical fared well in the UK in the early 90s. By the late 90s, Warner Brothers saw a movie in the musical and although the details and title of the movie were changed, in 1999, the animated The Iron Giant was released. The feature was the first movie directed by Brad Bird, who would go on to win Oscars for his classics The Incredibles and Ratatouille. For his efforts, Townshend was given an executive producers credit for The Iron Giant. For a band who once declared “I hope I die before I get old”, The Who will celebrate their 50th year anniversary this year with a short tour of Ireland and the UK. http://thewho.com/

Roger Daltrey had forgotten hits in the ’80s too | Tampa Bay Times

While Daltrey amassed a nice catalog of solo material in the 80s, he had only one U.S. Top 40 hit with Without Your Love in 1980. His best selling album of the 80s was the 1985 album Under A Raging Moon, which was his tribute to the late Keith Moon. If you think the lead single Let Me Down Easy has a pop-friendly tone to it, it’s because the song comes from the Bryan Adams-Jim Vallance songbook and Adams even shows up in the video. The tune reached No. 86 on the singles chart at the beginning of 1986. Even as a 70-year old man, Daltrey still looks great and as mentioned yesterday, he and Townshend are teaming up to celebrate The Who’s 50th anniversary with a short UK tour this winter.
