The barbeque is bare. It is excited in anticipation of the grilling sessions scheduled for next week. The Mad Meat Genius crew will be on vacation from the salt mines for a week of relaxation. We will be grillin and thrillin the whole week. Stay tuned for whole lot of fun.

Let's step back in time to 1968 when Rock was in its psychedelic groovy prime. The Rolling Stones put together a project that was to be aired on the BBC. They brought together some of the Superstars of Rock. John Lennon, Eric, Clapton, 'The Who', Taj Mahal, Jethro Tull and Marianne Faithful to record a concert. Those of you that know who Marianne Faithful is, have won the prize of the "Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award". You will be able to "Roll it up in your Bippy"and smoke it! Look that up in your 'Funk and Wagnails'. I regress. This concert made for TV was never aired on the television. It was released in 1996 as a DVD. It was released as "The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus".

I would like to share a clip from this DVD today. It is jam from the band 'Dirty Mac'. This band was formed just for this concert. It comprised of superstars, John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Mitch Mitchel (Jimi Hendrix Experience), Ivry Gitlis and John Lennon's fiance/performance artist Yoko Ono. Sit back, turn up the volume and keep an open mind.

Your right Zoomie! Yoko was a performance artist, whatever that means. Love it or hate it she evokes definiton one or two

Did she break up the Beatles? The Beatles were still together with this recording. You tell me?

I listen to this every day now.

Many singers, from the Vocalise by Rachmaninoff to Ella Fitzgerald, use their voices as another "instrument," so Yoko was in good company.
