Another one bites the dust

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Wow

Clyde plays electric bass
Plays it with finesse and grace
Sit on the porch without no shoes
Pickin' the bass and singing the blues.

For years, Clapton couldn't record an album without a JJ Cale song.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I thought Cale was supposed to be healthy.

Clyde - that's the first song I ever heard by JJ Cale - I was an instant fan. "Naturally" is a classic album. Cale had a way about him that was unique and simple - often copied but never duplicated. Lots of music personnel have died over the past few years, but really, Cale's passing was the biggest loss for me.

Interesting stuff, yeah shale, natural gas is rising fast unfortunately especially down south. The good thing is oil is peaking or has peaked and should be on a slow but steady decline thanks to innovation in producing power.
