Who was Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln (/ˈlɪŋkən/; February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th president of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in 1865. Lincoln led the nation through the American Civil War, the country’s greatest moral, cultural, constitutional, and political crisis. He succeeded in preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, bolstering the federal government, and modernizing the U.S. economy.

Lincoln was born into poverty in a log cabin and was raised on the frontier primarily in Indiana. He was self-educated and became a lawyer, Whig Party leader, Illinois state legislator, and U.S. Congressman from Illinois. In 1849, he returned to his law practice but became vexed by the opening of additional lands to slavery as a result of the Kansas–Nebraska Act. He reentered politics in 1854, becoming a leader in the new Republican Party, and he reached a national audience in the 1858 debates against Stephen Douglas. Lincoln r

David Cassidy Of the Partridge Family Dead at 67 – We Say Goodbye



David Cassidy Of the Partridge Family Dead at 67
The singer and actor died of multiple organ failure earlier today at a Florida hospital.

From September, 1970, until March, 1974 we knew him as Keith Partridge, the eldest son in the TV show The Partridge Family along with his real-life step-mom Shirley Jones. With the Partridge Family he had hits like “I Think I Love You” which reached #1 on the Billboard Charts in 1970. He also reached the Top 40 with “Doesn’t Somebody Want to Be Wanted,””I’ll Meet You Halfway,””I Woke Up in Love This Morning,””It’s One of Those Nights (Yes Love)” and “Breaking Up Is Hard to Do.” all were from the early 70’s. As a solo artist he had hits with “Cherish” in 1971, “How Can I be Sure” the following year among others. He peaked in the early 70’s where he played to two sellout crowds of 56,000 at the Houston Astrodome in Texas.

Cassidy also appeared on “Ironside, Adam-12, Bonanza, Marcus Welby M.D., The Mod Squad, The F.B.I, Police Story” where he was nominate for an Emmy Award, Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Blossom, Malcolm in the Middle among others

His parents were actors Jack Cassidy who died in 1976 and Evelyn Ward who passed 2012. He was married three times, His first wife was actress Kay Lenz, He was also married to horse breeder Meryl Tanz, and he divorced his third wife just last year Sue Shifrin who wrote songs for Tina Turner, Heart, Al Jarreau and Michael Jackson among others.

Cassidy’s life had been on the decline for quite a few years. He filed for bankruptcy and had a few DUI’s.

Last February Cassidy told People magazine was battling dementia and couldn’t remember his own lyrics. He’s also had problems with substance abuse. – by John Beaudin

K.K. Downing Left Judas Priest Over Non-Activity & Imbalance



K.K. Downing Left Judas Priest Over Non-Activity & Imbalance
It sounds like he was getting bored as some of his band-mates were out doing solo albums and tours.
His new book, “Heavy Duty: Days and Nights in Judas Priest” is coming out shortly and VintageRock.com asked if writing the book gave him some closure? He said, “Yeah, I think so. I guess it’s the same with any long term relationship – whether it’s a husband or wife, or father or son or whatever – you spend enough time together, and idiosyncrasies show up. I guess there was no particular right or wrong – some people have more tolerance than others, and it takes a bloody miracle really to stay together for 40 years. Someone has to give. And it has to be give and take. But inevitably, it becomes a bit of an imbalance, and I like to think that democracy is always the best policy. And there wasn’t enough of it there, I don’t think.”

He told that magazine that it bothered him when Priest vocalist Rob Halford and guitarist Glenn Tipton went off to do their solo stuff. He found it disruptive and then they asked him to start writing a 5 track EP and that sent him over the edge. He said, Rob has just released two albums in the last year, and we are only releasing an EP? Something is not right.’ Enough was enough really, and I bailed out there. And like I said in the book, I tried to put it as diplomatically as I could. But in a nutshell, enough was enough, really. And that was it.”
As for his relationship with the boys in the band he says, “I can’t say it’s overly sweet at the moment. Nothing lasts forever. I started in the late 60s, so certainly guys from that time, we’re not going to be around forever. Obviously, we’re losing a lot of good friends along the way. It is the way it is. For my own part, there is always a better way, and I always believe that democracy is the epitome of the way forward for everyone. That’s all that needs to happen. But, it’s a case of someone always wants a bigger share of the pie or whatever it is. It is what it is.”

In the beginning of the year guitarist Glenn Tipton of the band bowed out from the band and announced that he had Parkinson disease and they didn’t ask Downing to come back but would he? He says, “Before, I wasn’t asked, but if I would have been asked, it probably would have been depending on how I was asked, really, and how it was going to be going forward. And that would still be the same in the future. … I can’t really foresee that there would be another opening, so I guess it would be all too late. But if something did happen, I would have to see how the land lays at that particular point.”

K.K. Downing left Judas Priest in 2011. You can order his book “Heavy Duty: Days and Nights in Judas Priest” via the link in the description of this video. – by John Beaudin

Interview: America's Gerry Beckley: why They Never Reunited With Dan Peek



INTERVIEW – America’s Gerry Beckley Looks Back At Dan Peek Who We Lost in 2011
America had 11 Top 40 hits and 2 number 1 songs. Their first was 1972’s “A Horse With No Name” and then 1975’s “Sister Golden Hair.” They had seven Top 10 hits. Their most fruitful period were the seventies when they were a trio with Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell and Dan Peek who left in 1977 and passed in 2011. When I talked to Beckley I had to ask him the obvious question. (Clip 002)

They were a trio for seven years but a duo for 41 years. Beckley says they are different than many band that might not be the real deal anymore. (Clip 005)

We will have more from our exclusive interview with Gerry Beckley of America next Friday. America are currently on tour. Go to VenturaHighway.com for details – by John Beaudin
