Medical Lake burger lovers prepare your palates – good things may be coming your way.

“I’m just trying to help get this stuff going for her,” Joe said in the middle of working on an exhaust hood in the kitchen during a recent phone interview

The Long’s have been remodeling the restaurant’s interior from scratch, according to building owner Miranda Spilker.

“It was a completely empty building when I bought it,” Spilker said of the property she purchased about a year ago and is now leasing to the Longs.

According to local lore, the building has in the past housed the Donut Depot, the Emporium – called either a junk shop or antique store, depending on the person describing it – and a former local gas station and convenience store called Snode’s, where some locals recall buying penny candy as kids

We Honor and Remember All This Patriot Day

September 11th is now known as “Patriot Day” in the United States, observed as the National Day of Service and Remembrance for the victims of the 9/11 attacks. Across the country, numerous events will solemnly honor the devastating loss of thousands of lives and the destruction designed to rip the very fabric of this great nation. We join in remembering those lost, celebrating those who bravely responded where terror struck, lifting up those who still suffer today as a result of the attacks, and honoring those who serve around the globe, fighting to protect freedom.

Eighteen years ago, 19 militants tied to the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda killed more than 3,000 people (including more than 400 police officers and firefighters) and wounded more than 10,000 others during three coordinated attacks on 9/11, masterminded by Osama bin Laden. It was the deadliest attack on the US in history and the most devastating foreign act of war on American soil since the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Music Video Marketing – Five huge promotion opportunities you need to consider when releasing your new Music Video

Music Video Marketing: Five huge promotion opportunities you need to consider when releasing your new Music Video
andy gesner music video promotion
Written by Andy Gesner – Owner / president of HIP Video Promo (specializing in music video promotion)

For almost two decades, I’ve seen far too many visuals never see the light of day due to poor planning or a lack of promotion. Navigating the video marketing landscape has become increasingly difficult. The nuanced requirements for a successful music video marketing campaign are a lot to digest: digital delivery, closed captioning, ascertaining who to pitch, choosing a compelling thumbnail. It can all be confounding and overwhelming.

Although YouTube dominates, new viewers and fans connect with music videos on many diverse platforms that you may not have included in your current music video promotional package. Perhaps you didn’t even know that they existed! If you’re going to go for maximum exposure, you might as well go big! If

Former Fleetwood Mac Guitarist & Singer Danny Kirwan Dead at 68



Former Fleetwood Mac Guitarist & Singer Danny Kirwan Dead at 68
He played on albums like, ‘Then Play On’ (1969), ‘Kiln House’ (1970), ‘Future Games’ (1971), ‘Bare Trees’ (1972)

Mick Fleetwood released the following statement on his Facebook page, “Today was greeted by the sad news of the passing of Danny Kirwan in London, England. Danny was a huge force in our early years. His love for the Blues led him to being asked to join Fleetwood Mac in 1968, where he made his musical home for many years, Danny’s true legacy, in my mind, will forever live on in the music he wrote and played so beautifully as a part of the foundation of Fleetwood Mac, that has now endured for over fifty years. Thank you, Danny Kirwan. You will forever be missed!”

He played on their only British #1 song – the instrumental ‘Albatross’ as well as the hits ‘Man of the World’ and a real signature song for the early blues Fleetwood Mac sound ‘Oh Well.’ He was also on ‘Rattlesnake Shake.’

He was born on May 13, 1950 in Brixton, South London. Kirwin was in his teens when he was spotted by Fleetwood Mac.

The late Bob Welch of Fleetwood Mac who committed suicide in 2012 and who had the solo hits ‘Sentimental Lady’ and ‘Ebony Eye’ had a sometimes strained relationship with Kirwan once said, “He was a talented, gifted musician, almost equal to Pete Green in his beautiful guitar playing and faultless string bends.” In another interview he said, “Danny wasn’t a very lighthearted person, to say the least. He probably shouldn’t have been drinking as much as he did, even at his young age… He was always very intense about his work, as I was, but he didn’t seem to ever be able to distance himself from it… and laugh about it. Danny was the definition of ‘deadly serious’.”

He had problems with alcoholism and mental illness. At one point he was homeless. It was his drinking that got him kicked out of Fleetwood Mac.

Rolling Stone magazine printed a quote from The Independent from a rare interview with Kirwan from 1993. It was after Mick fleetwood went looking for his old bandmate going as far as asking the missing Person Bureau to look for him. At that time Kirwin said, “I get by and I suppose I am homeless, but then I’ve never really had a home since our early days on tour. I couldn’t handle it all mentally and I had to get out. I can’t settle.”

When Fleetwood Mac was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 his name was up there as well but he did not attend.

Kirwan died yesterday June 8, 2018. No cause of death was announced. – by John Beaudin

Bay City Rollers Bassist Alan Longmuir Dead at 70



Bay City Rollers Bassist Alan Longmuir Dead at 70
He was certainly part of a phenomenon in the 70’s. They were not exactly a rockers delight but it was hard to ignore Scotland’s Bay City Rollers in 1975-76 in North American and even earlier in the U.K.

It was actually Alan Longmuir who formed the Bay City Rollers with his drummer brother Derek and vocalist Gordon Clark. They were called the Saxons back then but later changed their name to the Bay City Rollers when a dart was thrown at a map landing on Bay City, Michigan.

As mentioned long before they came to North American the boys scored eight top 10 hits in the UK including ‘Keep on Dancing,’ ‘Remember (Sha-La-La-La),”Summerlove Sensation,”All of Me Loves All of You,’ Then there were two #1’s ‘Bye, Bye, Baby’ (which was featured in the film Love Actually in 2003) and ‘Give a Little Love’ followed by ‘Love Me Like I Love You.’

But 1974 the Bay City Rollers assembled their classic line up which included the Alan and Derek Longmuir, guitarists Eric Faulkner and Stuart Wood and lead vocalist Les McKeown.

Longmuir was born Edinburgh, Scotland on June 20, 1948. He actually left the Bay City Rollers at the height of their career in 1976 only to return in 1978. He reportedly contracted an illness while on vacation in Mexico.

Liam Rudden who wrote biographical stage play I Ran With the Gang in collaboration with Longmuir wrote, Alan was one of the most gentle, generous and kindhearted people I have ever known. He touched the lives of everyone he met with a smile that made them feel special, insisting that despite his amazing adventures in life he was still just ‘a plumber from Edinburgh.”

I was not part of “Rollermania” so I had no tartan’s in my closet but they were a force on the radio for a while.

The group sold an estimated 120 million records. There were many reunions throughout the years but Alan Longmuir said many times that there was too much work and not enough payback in doing the music. There were many arguments on where all the money went during the heyday of the band.

Singer Les McKeown, described his friend as “the original Bay City Roller” and bandmate Stuart Wood said he would “remember the good times we had for over 40 years”. – by John Beaudin

Moody Blues' Ray Thomas Dead at 76 – Our Tribute



Moody Blues’ Ray Thomas dead at 76
UPDATE – RAY THOMAS DIED FROM A HEART ATTACK
He died at his home after a battle with prostate cancer. His record company released the following statement, “It is with profound sorrow and sadness that Cherry Red Records and Esoteric Recordings regret to announce that Ray Thomas, founder member, flutist and vocalist of the Moody Blues, passed away suddenly at his home in Surrey on Thursday. We are deeply shocked by his passing and will miss his warmth, humor and kindness. It was a privilege to have known and worked with him and our thoughts are with his family and his wife Lee at this sad time.”

Thomas had to step away from the band just a few years ago and in 2014 confirmed that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Thomas was with the band from the beginning, back in the Denny Laine days and before they carved their future song with Justine Hayward and John Lodge. Their first album “The Magnificent Moodies” featured the hit “Go Now” which was sung by Laine. It would be their only UK No. 1 song. That was 1965.

By 1967 they were a different band. They were no longer chasing that Merseybeat sound of the British invasion instead they carved out their own brand of orchestral rock elements and an early helping of PProg Rock. Their second album, “Days of Future Passed.” Their record label wanted the band to record Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 but they had their own ideas. It was a delicious spacious adventure and in 2007 Rolling Stone included it in its list of essential albums of 1967. Thomas provided Flute and backing vocals on the big hit from the album, “Nights in White Satin.” and flute on it’s follow up “Tuesday Afternoon.”

The band followed that up with the UK #5 album “In Search of the Lost Chord” in 68 and their first of three number one albums, “On the Threshold of a Dream.” The other two were “A Question of Balance” in 1970 and “Every Good Boy Deserves Favour” the following year. The band took a break in the mid seventies and broke up until 1977.

The moody Blues has another string of success in the 80’s with “Long Distance Voyager,” “The Present” and “The Other Side of Life.” At that point Thomas’ role started to diminish as they went deeper in 80’s synth-pop. He played a bigger role by 1991’s “Key of the Kingdom.” He retired in 2002.

Thomas was a showman and served as the band MC quite often and he also was a prolific writer with the band.

Walter Becker of Steely Dan Dead at 67 – Full Story and Tribute



Walter Becker of Steely Dan Dead at 67 – Full Story & Tribute
WATCH ANOTHER TRIBUTE TO BECKER FROM JOHN HERE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSQ4loZnp6I
His passing was announced on his website this morning. There has been much speculation on either his relationship with Steely Dan partner Donald Fagen and/or his health lately after the guitarist missed both Classic East and West shows recently. Fagen had clarified a few weeks ago that it was medical.

Like the Eagles, Steely Dan had long careers with stretched breaks. For instance Eagles only recorded seven studio albums while Steely Dan wracked up nine.

Becker and Fagen met in 1968 at Bard College in New York. Recounting their first meeting Fagen says, “I hear this guy practicing, and it sounded very professional and contemporary.” At first Fagen thought he was African American. The two talked and agreed to be in a band. Steely Dan was named after a naughty toy from William S. Burroughs’ Naked Lunch. In the beginning the band also included
guitarists Jeff “Skunk” Baxter and Denny Dias, David Palmer and drummer Jim Hodder who later died in 1990 at 42.

Becker was born in Queens New York in 1950 and graduated High School in 1967 – the summer of love.

Every Steely Dan album scored, at least, #39 or better in the Billboard Top 200 with “Aja” going to #3 in 1977. Interestingly their 2000 comeback album “Two Against Nature” peaked at #6 out charting the follow up to “Aja”, “Gaucho” which reached #9 in 1980.

Steely Dan also reached the top 40 ten different times with hits like, 1972’s “Do It Again, “Reelin’ In The Years” the following years. They had their biggest hit in 1974 with “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number” peaking at #4. They followed that up with “Black Friday,””Bad Sneakers,””Kid Charlemagne,””Peg””Deacon Blues””FM (No Static at All)”Josie” and “Hey Nineteen.”

Becker and Fagen were known as the ultimate music perfectionist. They’re brand of groove pop Jazz/fusion showed a certain air of sophistication but Becker didn’t like that tag calling their music Rock and Roll with swing.

Steely Dan employed some of the best musicians in the world for their recordings. Just for “Aja” they brought in on Piano, Joe Sample, Michael Omartian, Don Grolnick, On Guitars, Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, Denny Dias, Steve Khan, Jay Graydon. There were drummers Steve Gadd, Bernard Purdie, Rick Marotta and Jim Keltner. Tom Scott and Wayne Shorter on Sax and Michael McDonald and Timothy B Schmit on vocals and that just a fragment of who was on there.

Their manager told Rolling Stone magazine in 1977 that the American super-groups were Fleetwood Mac. The Eagles, Chicago and Steely Dan.
