When Dweezil put the Hendrix Strat up on EBay, he asked for a million dollars for it. As I recall, the highest bid was half a million, and Dweezil didn't accept it.

Later, Gail decided the guitar was hers, and snatched it all away from Dweezil. I bet he wishes he had accepted that bid.

As far as I know, they never revealed who made the bid. But I always assumed it was Paul Allen. He was a HUGE Hendrix fan, and spent a ton of cash on Hendrix memorabilia.

Anyone know?

I could be totally wrong, but I vaguely remember reading somewhere that it was the Hendrix family trust that made the bid.....

Oompa loompa doompety doo
I've got another puzzle for you
Oompa loompa doompety dee
If you are wise you'll listen to me

What do you get from the Wonka, Willy?
A small singing part and a couple of scenes
And for this role that's audiovisual
You'll get no (you'll get no) you'll get no residuals

The proceeds from the factory should pay for a very nice funeral.

Queen's last corgi dies, leaving only dorgis: report

Image
© Provided by AFP The little, fluffy dogs with pointy ears have been a constant presence in Queen Elizabeth II's court

The queen's last corgi is dead -- long live the dorgi.

The little dogs with pointy ears, often sandy-coloured, have been a constant presence in Queen Elizabeth II's court, following her from room to room in Buckingham Palace and featuring prominently in official photos.

But Willow, the last corgi the queen reared herself, died in April.

And now Whisper, a 12-year-old she adopted after the death of its owner -- a former gamekeeper of one of the royal estates -- is no more, leaving the queen "deeply saddened", The Daily Mail reported.

Buckingham Palace refused to comment.

British media reports in 2015 said the 92-year-old British monarch had stopped raising corgis so as not to leave them orphaned after her death.

Nevertheless, the queen still has two dorgis to keep her company.

Candy and Vulcan, said The Daily Mail, are "dachshund and corgi crosses (who) are also rather more familiar with the Queen’s routine".

Cleveland rock legend and internationally acclaimed guitarist Glenn Schwartz has died
By John Petkovic, The Plain Dealer | Posted November 03, 2018 at 01:09 PM | Updated November 04, 2018 at 12:09 AM

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Jimi Hendrix loved his playing so much that he asked him to perform at his birthday party. Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Janis Joplin and Frank Zappa were among his biggest admirers. He played in the James Gang and spent decades jamming alongside rock ‘n’ roll royalty.

But there was only one king – God almighty – to Glenn Schwartz. And the Cleveland rock legend saw his guitar as much an instrument of faith as a maker of music.

He often sang about heaven, the daily struggles on earth and the road to eternal salvation.

Schwartz is on his way: The beloved musician, who inspired generations of players and fans around the world over five-plus decades, died on Friday. He was 78.

“I’m in denial,” said his longtime companion, Sally Moncol. “I was talking with Glenn on the phone in the morning and then he told me, ‘I’m out of breath and feel like I just ran a mile.’ Then he started slurring his words.”

Schwartz lived in Euclid with his brother and bass-playing bandmate, Gene Schwartz – who tried to help Glenn before calling 911.

“Gene called emergency and they came and took Glenn to Cleveland Clinic Euclid Hospital,” added Moncol. “He passed away soon after getting there. He had so many ups and downs in life, but it’s shocking to think he’s gone.”

Schwartz enjoyed many peaks and survived even more struggles in his life. As a juvenile, he loved hot rods, street racing and getting into trouble.

He also loved rock ‘n’ roll and learned gritty riffs playing along to 45s by bluesmen like Otis Rush. Schwartz could play cool, loose and bluesy. Or he could flip a switch and play tough – with the mania and a wicked vibrato that brought flair and intensity to the room. He was, after all, an emotional player, and his guitar was his emotional divining rod.

After getting out of the military in 1967, Schwartz embarked on a life of rock ‘n’ roll.

“I was trying to put the James Gang together and was having problems finding a guitar player,” said James Gang drummer and founder Jimmy Fox. “So I was asked to audition for this nine-piece band. I wasn’t going to do it until I heard that Glenn was supposed to be there – he already had a reputation for being an amazing guitar player and I wanted to meet him.”

Fox was blown away by Schwartz soon after hearing him play.

“He had been stationed in Germany for three years and had so many different influences and was nothing like the other musicians in the area,” says Fox. “He was on par with the greatest guitar players in rock ‘n’ roll.”
