Why we can't have peace in the Middle East
by KEITH

It's no secret that lots of the trouble in the world comes when people just can't get along.

At the day job, we're continually getting memos about cleaning up our small kitchenette. Seems no one wants to clean up after themselves!

That makes me wonder: if our small office can't keep our kitchen clean, and everyone gets so mad at each other over this, how can we ever get to peace in the MIddle East?

Top 5
by KEITH

So, here are the top 5 singer/songwriter musicians I find most influential:

*David Gilmour over Roger Waters?
Well, there is probably no other lyricist better than Roger Waters but Mr. G is a major influence sonically. Put Roger to # 6

More on Sheryl and Chris

Returnees to the page may note that Tom Petty has "fallen" (any Free Fallin' fans out there?) down off the list.  I moved to KT Tunstall for two reasons: The "wee bastard" looper she uses so well and the beauty of her songs.  But, hey, Tom is still around in the thought process.  Certainly in the top 10!

Friends and mentors

Thanks to the influences I actually know in person
by KEITH

I got to thinking about the influences of people I actually know or have known.

Why not put them down in a list to say thank you? After all, I actually met them in the flesh. So, because I can, I will ...

Ah, but now, we've expanded the list to include Honourry Whiners everywhere.

And we've moved the list to The Whiners Wiki, where you can add yourself in the comments section.

See if you are listed or add yourself to the list!
