Late Night FDL: Heartbreaker/ Ring of Fire

Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo – Heartbreaker/ Ring of Fire

As Rolling Stone wrote last week…

Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo: ‘We’re Like Johnny and June’

On August 1st, 1981, Pat Benatar strutted her way onto MTV, the upstart video channel that would change the way a generation listened to music. The petite New York native with the gigantic voice tore through a cover of the Young Rascals’ “You Better Run,” sticking her index finger in the face of some imaginary foe, and pointing toward a future in which women would grab rock & roll by the wallet. Only the second-ever video played on MTV, it followed the Buggles’ synth-heavy “Video Killed the Radio Star” on the channel and helped turn the classically trained Benatar into a rock superstar with dozens of chart hits, a Number One album and a seemingly endless concert tour that continues to this day. By her side, playing guitar in the clip, was Neil Giraldo, who would secure his own place in history as the first-ever guitarist spotlighted on MTV. In addition to serving as her musical partner, Giraldo would also secure a place in Benatar’s heart — they married in 1982 and have two daughters. {…}

After a whirlwind media day in New York last week, Benatar and Giraldo landed in Nashville to play the Ryman Auditorium, the Mother Church of Country Music, a fitting venue for the couple as they feel a close kinship to one of country music’s most legendary couples. That’s one reason their set list includes an incendiary mash-up of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” (co-written by the future Mrs. Cash, June Carter) and the couple’s own “Heartbreaker.” The result is one of their still-spectacular live show’s most thrilling and genuine moments…

What’s on your mind tonite…?

    Dixie is very, very soggy.

    BB was the original “Beale Boy,” which got shortened to – BB.

    His funeral is this Saturday, iirc, in the Delta, Indianola, or some such.

    A shame that so many heirs and wannabe heirs are already squabbling over their “share,” but a blessing that we had him and for so many years.

    In EU news… NATO plans to establish 8 new commands… NATO to Establish up to Eight Command Units in Eastern Europe

    NATO’s six command and control centers are intended to facilitate the
    rapid deployment of the allies’ Very High Readiness Joint Task Force,
    according to earlier announcements by NATO.

    “We are establishing six command and control
    units in the three Baltic countries [Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia] and
    in Poland, Bulgaria, and Romania. And probably also [there will] be two
    more of those in two more countries,” Stoltenberg said. {…}

    NATO’s enhanced readiness and military presence among partner countries bordering Russia is underway, Stoltenberg explained.

    “NATO has already increased its military
    presence in the eastern part of the alliance with more air policing,
    with more troops doing exercises, and also with more ships in the Black
    Sea and the Baltic Sea.”

    To be sure… U.S. Osprey aircrafts appear in Eastern Europe’s military exercise

    Ironically, while the EU/NATO are quick to support’em militarily, politically they’re left in the dark… EU’s Cynical Plan to Use Eastern Europe

    Evening all you Dogs!

    Today I had to laugh my ass off (with the rest of the military world) at that expensive-disgrace-of-a-fighter-jet, the Fat-Slug F35. What an expensive piece of crap that one is. Took a video tour of the simulator, today. What a loser. No wonder the nation is bankrupt.

    Ever seen a fighter jet take off vertically? Land vertically? Gravity? What gravity? Who can turn a flat spin into a maneuver?

    Behold the Russian PAK-FA 2015 UFO Fighter Jets!

    Oops! There’s goes the “sphere of America’s influence.” Biden belongs in a Alzheimer’s Unit.

    You can read more about it here. Delivering this month. The world is clamoring. Even those NATO fools want to buy them some.

    Ya gotta just laugh… Christie raps Obama on Iran and Israel

    To be sure… Christie, Menendez honored as ‘champions’ of Israel

    Yet… US Defence Aid To Israel To Rise Over Iran Deal Fears – Sources

    U.S. defence aid to Israel is likely to increase after 2017, sources on
    both sides said on Thursday, seeing a possible link to Washington’s
    efforts to assuage its ally’s fears over nuclear diplomacy with Iran.

    A current package worth $3 billion (£1.9 billion) a year expires in 2017.

    A US official, speaking to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said
    negotiators were close to a new deal that would bring annual payouts to
    $3.6 billion to $3.7 billion on average.

    An Israeli official, who also declined to be named, put the expected aid at between $3.5 billion and $4 billion.

    Well, Our Defense Overlords keep the corrupt bought-and-paid-for US Senators under the dinner table, fluffing them real good, and handing the Federal budget over to the MIC, which they promptly blow on their antique and obsolete military technology — along with better hookers (than DC Senators).

    Little wonder that the American people always get exactly what they deserve.

    it’s true that nearly half a million Israelis have joined ISIS…and that Israeli aid to ISIS amounts to $5B/year.

    Yeah. I had to laugh at Biden, today. He even pulled out the “rolling crematorium” card. ::: snort ::: (The “good guys” can’t find them no dead bodies — and the US can’t even produce a satellite photo of the “great rollin’ Russian ovens.”) Hahaha!

    The US, in a final desperate attempt to find some relevance in the world and capture the news cycle, has sicced the DOJ on soccer — all because Russia is hosting the next World Cup.

    Even certain African tribes, totally isolated from the outside world, are laughing their asses off at the goofball US.

    I bet Denny has nothing left over for liposuction.

    At least Mitch McConnell still has some hope. I know some universities that would do his neck just for research purposes. (Plus rental reimbursement on the 50-gallon drum.)
