What to leave in? What to leave out?

first_imgI never really had a lot of cassettes but somehow I owned this one in that format because it came as a holiday gift. I was mostly an album man with a lot of 45s and many of the little yellow discs (because they always snapped). And I never had much more than my original batch of a dozen 8-Tracks. And then mix tapes hit the console and it altered everything along with FM radio and MTV.But amidst the noise of the Kiss solo albums and Nick Gilder’s “Hot Child In The City,” there were a few Pat Benatar and Styx records early on to keep my rock and roll heart honest.And I wasn’t really sure what to make of Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band with the pretty horses on the cover, because “Against The Wind” was a gift from a relative who wanted me to have a cassette tape to put in my new home deck with all of the blinking green and red lights.A digital look in an analog world! Nothing in the world was more beautiful than the movement of those lights to the sounds of FM stereo music on Bank Street with the windows open on a nice night as a kid. This cassette was that companion.Seger had toured with R.E.O. Speedwagon, so that got my attention and I already loved The Eagles.I wore this one out – especially the title track. I would rewind it to hear it again and again. The same way I wore out those disco 45s of Andy Gibb and Heatwave a few years earlier.I still think “Against The Wind” is as good of a song as has ever been written. And I’m a big fan of “You’ll Accomp’ny Me” and “Fire Lake.” I only saw Seger once in his prime, at the Capital Centre back in the #AlmostFamous era. The friend I took to that show died a few years ago, so it always rolls me away a bit.But, finally, there I was on the road again on a wintry night in Milwaukee 15 months ago and he and his epic catalog was still pure magic. “Night Moves” is such an eternal song. Big kudos to Jason Wright for his accompaniment.His music has aged so very well for me. This cassette was a gateway to singers and songwriters and words that I sang as I child – but later lived and far better recognized as a man.Seger told me what was coming about the fire inside.Deadlines and commitments. There were oh so many roads. Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends.I’m not sure what I really understood about all that prophecy at 11 years old but as I turn the pages now at almost 52, I was about to learn something about life because of the words in rock and roll songs.It seems like yesterday. But it was long ago…And rock and roll never forgets.last_img read more

Man who tried to stop Kansas shooting says he was ‘more than happy’ to risk his life to save others

first_imgNOAH SEELAM/AFP/Getty Images(OLATHE, Kan.) — A Kansas man who’s been called a hero for trying to stop a deadly shooting last week said he was “happy” to risk his life to save others and that he’s grateful for how his community has united following the incident.Ian Grillot, 24, intervened to stop a gunman who witnesses said yelled “get out of my country” before shooting two Indian men in Olathe, Kansas last Wednesday, killing one.Adam Purinton, a 51-year-old Navy veteran and former air traffic controller, is being charged with murder and attempted murder in the shooting that killed Srinivas Kuchibhotla and wounded Alok Madasani, both 32-year-old employees of the technology company Garmin.Authorities are investigating if the shooting was a hate crime. Purinton is being held on a $2 million bond and is scheduled make his first court appearance on Monday.“This is a very bad way of it happening, but, I’m so grateful that it is actually bringing the community together instead of driving them apart,” Grillot said in an interview posted on the University of Kansas Hospital’s YouTube page on Sunday. “It is such a beautiful thing. I love it.“I was more than happy to risk my life to save the lives of others,” Grillot said. “I thank everybody for drawing together and supporting me and the other families affected by this.”Grillot said he is recovering from gunshot wounds to his hand and chest. He said he was “doing a lot better,” but still sore and feeling the aftermath from “the bullet lodged in my ribs.”People traveled from as far as India and Washington, D.C. to attend a prayer vigil for Kuchibhotla and the other victims in Olathe on Sunday.Representative Kevin Yoder, R-Kan., attended the vigil and posted about it on his Instagram account, calling the incident a “great tragedy” and saying “thousands of concerned citizens came together to support one another and the Indian community.”He also urged people to remember Kuchibhotla’s life as well as Grillot’s “heroism.”Many of the vigil’s attendees, including Mike Johns of Olathe, said they were there to rally for peace.“This isn’t Selma, but this is close,” Johns told ABC affiliate KMBC on Sunday. “We’re marching, just like Dr. Martin Luther King [Jr.] did, for peace.” Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
