I would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. 2020 has been a terrible year in a lot of ways and things aren’t looking to get better anytime soon. We’ve had the pandemic and the passing of many great rock stars. Now, it’s my sad duty to add one more to this sad list. Leslie West, guitarist in the band Mountain passed away yesterday. This means the year is going out in the same sucky way it came in.

But enough gloom for now! Reading your posts and having you read and comment on mine has made a big difference this year. I hope everyone enjoys their Christmas. May those who indulge get plenty drunk and eat lots of turkey and sweets. I leave you now with Mountain’s best known song, “Mississippi Queen” and three alternative versions of the carol “Deck the Halls.”

Merry Christmas to all!
