No matter what I’ve always remained true to myself not trying to compete or sound like nobody else creating my own lane, sound, and energy something to shift your vibrations.....It feels good to know I’ve been an inspiration to majority of artists/musicians in this city (even the ones with to much pride to admit but I still love you) Just by staying true to who I am....
It’s a good feeling to know something you’ve put a lot of energy, work, and power into for years finally gets recognized.
To be able to see a vision with a group of great musicians/artists and bring it to reality through the power of the Most High is a wonderful feeling.......I can’t waste time counting haters, non supporters, or fake fans but I can say I appreciate everyone who has supported from the start....All the people who continue to keep it real with genuine love and support you are truly appreciated and to The Elektra Kumpany\Team I love and respect every one of you for working with me and moving as one unit.........Don’t sleep on greatness right here in your city people. There are a lot of great musicians, artists, creators, etc. who get overlooked til they’re discovered by someone from the outside....Don’t be like the lady on the movie The Temptations feeling stupid when she saw them on the big stage on TV....Annnndd Musicians/Artists/Singers/Dancers all that good stuff... start showing real love and genuine support for each other it’s not a competition you’re not the only one God gave gifts too ....Share each other shows do what you can to let the world know stop being phony.....The time is here to shift your energy or keep fuckin around and be a shoulda coulda woulda person...........That’s it I have spoken....Rise Up in your game of life
Saturday March 19th 1960 was the final night of shows in Liverpool for Eddie, Gene and the rest of the the troupe. By all accounts, except for the snarky review on day two by George Elgin of the Liverpool Daily Post, the week was a resounding success. The following day they all headed across the country to Newcastle to begin a week of shows at the Newcastle Empire. The photo of Eddie today was taken on the last night of the week in Liverpool and is another shot of him with UK Fan Club official Stella Hancock. Stella sent this photo to Gloria Julson, Eddie's sister, in California in July of 1960 as well as another photo from Bristol which she guessed might be the last photo taken of Eddie before his death. In the letter dated July 12th Stella sent her condolences to Eddie's family and also asked Gloria about Sharon Sheeley's relationship with Eddie "Could you tell me Gloria, if Sharon Sheeley was really engaged to Eddie. No-one over here seems to think so". Interesting that questions were being asked about that claim way back then. I'll be posting about that subject in a couple of weeks when I cover the Manchester, London (Finsbury Park) and Bristol shows during which Sharon was in the UK. The second photo is a shot of the Liverpool Empire Theatre which hasn't changed much at all since Eddie played there in 1960. The third photo is a shot of the Adelphi Hotel which was taken in 1962, two years after Eddie and Gene stayed there. The hotel, like the theatre, is still there and is still operating as The Adelphi but no longer has the reputation of a high-end hotel.

Kajun SS - "Wop Bop Bam Bam" Single-sided 12", Jeth-Row Records, 2004
Wild 'n dirty garage punk from New Orleans. Another band I had they pleasure of meeting on tour. We played a show at the Circle Bar in New Orleans with Kajun SS and Die Rotzz. Both were great and we had a fun time hanging out that night. After our show, the drummer from Die Rotzz (at least, I think that's who he was) took us to a bar where a zydeco band was playing and we bought "beers to go." We trekked through about 100 yards of pitch black Louisiana woods before emerging on the bank of the Mississippi river where we sat on lawn chairs and milk creates and drank the beers. His house was across the street from a cemetery, so three of us hopped the fence and wandered around the cemetery in the middle of the night taking ridiculous photos until we got spooked.
