Sambora's on a Lost Highway

CHEERZ! Jovi/Sambora debuted at #1 in 8 countries+European+World Charts,#2 in 3 countries for its new Album 'Lost Highway'. But they have decided to take it easy for a while and start the Worldwide tour from Jan ( Hope India is included) coz Sambora fresh from divorce and a breakup(:P not the same) entered the rehab for alcohol treatment for a week. There's a flip side for everything huh?
Neway i forgot quite a few bdays this july(nothing new) and Sambora's one of them,He had it on 11th of July.Belated Birthday for him! LOL thats why he must have quickly got out of the rehab after one week! Don't wanna miss the booze on your birthday!!
Well lots of fans and peers alike adore him for his guitar skills but did you know he had a kick ass voice!? TIMES better than Jon Bon Jovi esp post Keep The Faith.
One dude ( goes to say that Jon Bon Jovi is the weakest link in the group(Hugh McDonald, the highly talented former Alice Cooper bassist, Dave Bryan is a hugely talented pianist who attended Juilliard,Tico Torres was a sessions drummer for Chuck Berry,and our own Sambora!!)Valid point, too harsh though, THats another story, we'll take that up later!

Heres something I found on youtube which will blow you away!. He's got soul ! Tough year for him.Lost his Dad too.But he'll come out unscathed and will keep rocking the world!

Rare Bob Dylan Interview -- TIME vs DYlan

Taken from the 'Dont Look Back' documentary released in 1967 when Dylan was making the transition from acoustic to electric which enraged lots of fans. It is a gritty black and white documentary that follows him during a tour in England.

Rolling Stones-
'Filmed during Bob Dylan's tour of Britain in the spring of 1965, Don't Look Back -- now in a definitive two-disc edition -- is the first and best pop documentary of its kind, a defining study of celebrity as suffocation.It is a masterpiece of all-access portraiture, too, capturing a Dylan (not yet twenty-four) who is shy, wily and pissed off in rapid, unpredictable succession, yet also driven to create.'

Part of a user review -->
'The best part of DON'T LOOK BACK is when Bobby Dylan starts ripping apart a reporter from TIME, telling the guy from TIME that he is a moron. It's also fascinating to see these old school businessmen putting up with antics because they know he will make them rich.'

'The sequence of these events show clearly how Dylan is at a loss with the publics perception of him. He can't just be himself. He wants to come across as a guy like anyone else but his sarcastic and meaningless interaction with the press only makes things worse'

Bob Dylan was not a media man, he hated the media.. He was just a simple man wanted to write some songs.

Well looks like the reporter got the wrong man, Dylan kicks royal butt.Check it out!

Life - a casino

Try this- whenever you’re in a sticky situation or you’re just fed up of life wondering what’s your purpose in life….think of yourself in the cosmic sense, chances are that you’ll start feeling better. :-) Looking at the bigger picture always puts things back in perspective when all roads lead a dead end.

What do you think happens to people who have a Near Death Experience? The entire life is flashed back in a half a second and suddenly they are jolted back to reality (if they are not knocking on heavens door) . And they will be like- what the fuck am I doing with my life??? and from that day onwards they start living life fully. Maybe do that sky diving thing he always wanted to do, show the finger to his boss :D ring his best frnd/ mate after 20 years whatever.

Life is a great leveler they say. I don’t see it that way. It’s too narrow a view, or it’s been summarized for fools like us to understand. There are people who have endured tremendous tragedies in life, they seldom find happiness. And there are people on the other side of town who might have knocked out at times but have found happiness more often. And then there are people in between which form the majority. There are times when you’re on a high and life is beautiful. You appreciate its meaning and then there are times where you get kicked around and eventually get up or don’t. Its all about percentages. Look at it closely we are just numbers in a big probability game. Mario Puzo mentioned the term Percentages in his book Fools Die magnificently. It’s a casino term used by the owner. He says the casino is governed by percentages. There won’t be 10 days straight where the blackjack counter will face losses, maybe 3 days but the next 7 days profits will pick up and will be conforming to the percentage. It HAS to in the long run. And if it ain’t, then something’s fishy, and that’s how they used to catch the guy who cheats. Amazing!

Nice analogy. Think of life as a casino. It’s been millions of years we species inhabit the Earth. We have come from the dust and will go back there. And everywhere you see, you will see percentages governing the universe. Now people bundle it into religion, fundamentals, mathematics –like a parts of a jigsaw puzzle and make fancy statements like ‘Its Fate’ and sell it to the public.
