Enjoy the Oscars

You can see all the stars as you walk down Hollywood Boulevard,
Some that you recognise, some that you’ve hardly even heard of,
People who worked and suffered and struggled for fame,
Some who succeeded and some who suffered in vain.
Celluloid Heroes, The Kinks, 1972

With gratitude to Johnny G. for taking me and T.P. to our first big concert, The Kinks at Nassau Coliseum, 1979-ish.

  1. Thanks for bringing The Kinks to my attention… it’s been a while since I listened to their music. Ray Davies is one of the best British singer-songwriters ever, right up there with Richard Thompson and John Lennon.
    One of my favorite recordings from the group’s heyday is Muswell Hillbillies.
