Buddy's gone... Buddy Blue, guitarist/songwriter/hell raiser/friend/funny mofo. Buddy was in a few different bands in his life, the most famous was the Beat Farmers w/Country Dick Montana(drummer/singer/guitar abuse), Jerry Raney(guitar/singer), Rolle Dexter(bass/dog house). When Dick died, no one was really all that surprised, no one who knew him anyway... but Buddy was not supposed to die, he was the glue, the shock absorber.
Buddy had rallied together the old members/friends and created a new band from the ashes of the Beat Farmers, (the Flying Putos), as a test that worked to the jubilation of many fans.
The Farmers had even cut an album, and were starting to appear further from home...
Buddy was a wise-ass, a fun, boisterous, irreverent guy who made you smile, laugh, and sing. He wrote great songs, and sang beautifully. I will miss his wonderful website forum
PS: Say hello to Country Dick for us.
Lono is Gone!

Avail thine self of the tall tumbler of turkey, with ice, Raise thy head and glass, knock it back - for HST has ridden his last Vincent, taken his last target, and gone to find Warren and Roland.

Well, it is once again upon me. As HST called it, THE FEAR. There is something ominous hanging in the wings and it's very breath is upon us. This election in a month is going to be a decision between life and death for many of the youth in our nation. We have returned to 60's in a not so cool way.
Understand this before you go any further; Bush and Kerry both want to stay in Iraq. To do so they will need more bodies, they do not have enough. Round about the 15th of november expect the DRAFT to be re-instated. If you have children between the ages of 17-26, you will be sending them to die by voting for either one of these 2 fucktards.
It can't be said any more plainly. A vote for the democraps or th repubicans will be a vote to KILL PEOPLE.
I can't and won't. I will vote for Badnarik. I still won't be able to sleep but, I will at least have voted my conscience.
