Holy H. Particular on a bicycle... was it really that long ago? Dang now I feel really really old. Just imagine some of the concerts we could have seen had they lived. Imagine Jim and Jimi and Janis on stage with the Stones doing a remake of "Gimme Shelter". That would have been awesome. They all went too early. Fame is a bitch.

Darev, I actually have a bootleg of Jim, Jimi and Janis working together.

Auntie, get over it. As long as you and I are still alive is all that matters.

Anon, The good go young, don't they?
