Don't know if Irma's still alive.

If she is, Mick Jagger should kiss her ass at least once a year in thanks for "Time's on My Side" and give her some money to go with it.

Haw! (Good thing I didn't have a mouthful of coffee).

Hey, is Irma Thomas still alive? I heard her sing in a club in the French Quarter about 10 or 12 years ago, I think.

BJacques, many men go to sleep with a stranglehold on something and wake up at the YMCA. Your case is not that unusual.

"Fuckin diso made me start listening to country music"

Now that IS extreme ...

"because that and fuckin disco was all they played on the radio where I lived when I was a teenager."

When I was a teenager, I rode the yellow bus to school. The bus driver always turned the radio up, WTIX (AM) out of New Orleans. Little did I suspect that the "top ten" on that station was rarely heard outside New Orleans. If you had asked me, I would have thought those were the favorite tunes all over the country. Irma Thomas, Little Willie John, The Meters, Professor Longhair, etc.

Yeah, me too. In 1976, my favorite hard rock station switched to disco at midnight, without any warning. I went to bed to "Stranglehold" and woke up to (probably) "YMCA."

I liked some of the older stuff he did. I hated disco with a passion. Fuckin diso made me start listening to country music because that and fuckin disco was all they played on the radio where I lived when I was a teenager. I assure you I didn't want to listen to country. It was better than disco though so I did listen. All worked out in the wash I guess. Now I listen to all kinds of music. No one gets outta this place alive!!
