’60s Hair Wars:<br />

Hippies vs. Sgt. Carter<br />

Remember the 1960s? It<br />

was in all the papers – the<br />

Vietnam War, civil rights<br />

protests, sex, drugs and<br />

rock ’n roll. Those social upheavals<br />

made it seem Atlas had farted while<br />

he was holding up the earth.<br />

But the Molotov cocktail that firebombed<br />

more American households<br />

than those volatile, history-changing<br />

events was . . . guys’ hair! We males<br />

of the younger generation suddenly<br />

wanted to grow more of it. Our elders<br />

wanted to keep us looking like the<br />

flat-topped drill sergeant on the TV<br />

show “Gomer Pyle.”<br />

Looking back today, observers<br />

of this culture war might think we<br />

adolescent males in the ’60s were<br />

pushing to grow marijuana on top of<br />

our skulls.<br />

As we boys lobbied our parents to<br />

postpone a trip to the barbershop,<br />

we would play the J.C. card: “But<br />

Jesus had long hair!” However, those<br />

paintings of Jesus with hair down to<br />

his ass didn’t prevent a trip to the<br />

barber for me and my two brothers.<br />

My dad – smart guy! – knew the<br />

true reason we wanted hair down<br />

to our ass, and it wasn’t because<br />

we wanted to emulate the son<br />

of God. Rather, we wanted to be<br />

like someone bigger<br />

than Jesus Christ – the<br />

Beatles! But the Fab Four<br />

didn’t win the Hair Wars<br />

for our side. It was the<br />

8<br />

Cowsills, that mom-and-apple-pie<br />

family pop group, who struck the coup<br />

de grace.<br />

By the time the Beatles released<br />

the scandalous “Rubber Soul” in<br />

December 1965, in which the four<br />

mop-tops had hair that barely covered<br />

their ears, most of us white lads<br />

across America were allowed to have<br />

hair that looked like the Beach Boys<br />

on their “Surfer Girl” album – moppish<br />

but with ears fully exposed. That was<br />

the line of demarcation in the Hair<br />

Wars: If a boy’s hair had grown a<br />

quarter-inch over the top of his ears,<br />

he would be sent home with a note<br />

from the principal explaining how this<br />

hippie-freak kid was undermining<br />

American<br />

democracy. End of<br />

story.<br />

As for the black<br />

boys: Sure, Sly<br />

Stone sported an<br />

Afro that was bigger<br />

than the mushroom<br />

cloud of an atomic<br />

bomb. But, given that the black<br />

guys at school had hair that looked<br />

like country singer Charlie Pride, I<br />

assumed they also were losing the<br />

Hair Wars in their homes.<br />

All rock and soul stars were fueling<br />

us young lads with a lust for long<br />

beautiful hair, shining, gleaming,<br />

steaming, flaxen, waxen: The Door’s<br />

Jim Morrison with his lion’s mane.<br />

Led Zep’s Robert Plant with his<br />

even bigger lion’s mane. The Rolling<br />

Stones’ Brian Jones with his hippyfied<br />

medieval pageboy cut.<br />

The Hair Wars were at a stalemate<br />

when the Cowsills, that wholesome<br />

pop group that became the model for<br />

the TV show “The Partridge Family,”<br />

jumped into the fray with their 1969<br />

cover of the title song from the 1968<br />

musical “Hair.”<br />

by Rick de Yampert<br />

“Carl Reiner was creating a TV<br />

special called ‘The Wonderful World<br />

of Pizzazz,’ ” Susan Cowsill told me<br />

before her family group performed at<br />

Hippiefest in Daytona Beach in 2015.<br />

“And Carl, God bless him, thought<br />

it would be pretty darn funny if the<br />

Cowsills did a parody of hippies. So<br />

that video you see of ‘Hair’ with all of<br />

us dressed up, that was part of the<br />

deal. We were in modeling wigs from<br />

China.”<br />

The Cowsills’ record company was<br />

horrified and didn’t want to release<br />

“Hair” as a single. But a Chicago radio<br />

deejay sneaked it onto the air without<br />

revealing who was behind it, “and<br />

-- seriously old school verbiage -- the<br />

switchboard lit up,” Susan Cowsill<br />

said. The song became the Cowsills’<br />

biggest hit.<br />

And – just my theory – “Hair” was the<br />

song that ended the ongoing Hair<br />

Wars in our home. I’m certain my dad<br />

was thinking “If even the Cowsills are<br />

down with this long hair thing . . . .”<br />

So, Dad finally admitted defeat. His<br />

exasperated parting shot to me and<br />

my two brothers was: “Go ahead -- if<br />

you want to have hair down to your<br />

ass, that’s fine with me!”<br />

I fulfilled my dad’s<br />

sarcastic blessing for<br />

many years.<br />

Love ya, Dad.


Behind the Mic: Riggs<br />

95.7 the Hog, Daytona Beach<br />

Hello, friends! Raise a glass<br />

to the 2-year anniversary of <strong>Static</strong><br />

<strong>Live</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong>! It is a major<br />

benchmark by any standard and I am beyond<br />

proud and honored to be a part of the family. There<br />

are “publications” around that mention music and<br />

events around a cluster of ads that you could certainly<br />

use for a placemat or drawer liner. This product you<br />

hold is a magazine, a collection of impassioned works<br />

by industry professionals and fans of all things music<br />

and culture. It looks better from cover to layout and<br />

hell, even the staples are superior to any other. And<br />

it costs you nothing. What a rare and beautiful thing<br />

that is. Here’s to many more years of excellence.<br />

That said, I have now raised the bar much too high<br />

for my planned “26 Best Toilet Experiences” article I<br />

had pieced together. Damn. OK, how about this… a<br />

list of some of the publications that I am, for whatever<br />

reason, no longer a contributor.<br />

INDIFFERENT HOUSEKEEPING - I began writing<br />

for these jokers in college. Yes, it was a great startup<br />

gig for a young writer. But how far can you stretch<br />

concepts like “Best uses for dirty cereal bowls” and<br />

“That’s not a laundry pile, it’s art!”? Best<br />

work I did there was<br />

“Litter box / Mail box; Drive your cat postal!”<br />

10<br />

THREE SHEETS - Another early career gig<br />

that I enjoyed for a few months. This monthly rag was<br />

printed on chamois and LITERALLY could be used<br />

as a rag. The content held tales of drunk reflections<br />

and binge drinking tips. And though it would be<br />

frowned on in these modern times, the content was<br />

a cautionary tale of how to handle your liquor with<br />

dignity, grace, and if needed, a chamois.<br />

PIGS OF LOGAN - This quarterly kept up with some<br />

of Logan, West Virginia’s favorite and most portly<br />

swines. The State Department of Agribusiness<br />

eventually pulled their funding and we were forced<br />

to write for free. Also, no more all-you-can-stand<br />

bacon eating writers meetings. Miss the pork, not the<br />

farmers’ scorn.<br />

BALLS - I accepted a position with this quasimonthly<br />

tabloid under the guises that I was writing<br />

about my favorite sports moments. Turns out that<br />

was NOT what they were looking for. Explains why<br />

the publisher was winking so much. Anyway, I wrote<br />

erotic testicle literature until we got the cease & desist<br />

from the OTHER Balls.<br />

TALK TO THE HAND! - This sassy weekly paper was<br />

a great outlet for those who wished to defiantly state<br />

their dismay with local city ordinances and events. As<br />

Chief Editor, my job entailed spellcheck, punctuation,<br />

obscenity censoring, slander avoidance, and general<br />

upkeep of the trailer we published in. 96% of the<br />

entries began with “Let me say something about this<br />

is that…” and finished “...and you tell that (obscenity<br />

deleted) S.O.B. that I will meet him in the G-damn<br />

parking lot of the Mercantile and settle this like a<br />

couple of grown-ass men!” Not what I bought into for<br />

a year of $65k torment.<br />

BLURRED INSIGHTS - A monthly magazine for those<br />

who can’t quite recall the details of their important<br />

stories. While my creative freedom was hampered,<br />

it’s surprising how long you can keep a job by<br />

massaging the facts.<br />

FROZEN FOUNDATIONS - I took a job in Kenosha,<br />

Wisconsin in the early 90’s writing for this journal. It<br />

required me to craft captions under photos of snow<br />

covered buildings, snowy landscapes, snowed on<br />

athletic equipment, animals in snow, and really snow<br />

anything they took a photo of. The photographer was<br />

a dictator and insisted that each of his picture subjects<br />

held a “voice” that we needed to amplify with words.<br />

Cheeseheads were wildly entertained by my series of<br />

stories from “Rusty the Blatz Keg”. Idiots.<br />

CLASSIC CITY SOUNDS - This bi-weekly published<br />

what I thought were concert reviews from area clubs<br />

and venues. Turned out that it was just angry rants<br />

from old townsfolk about the noise of the buses, dog<br />

food plant, traffic and “that long-hair that plays his<br />

guitar-fiddle on the corner of the drug store”. I quit via<br />

fax.<br />

THE OVERACHIEVER - This taunting periodical<br />

compiled stories of success from wealthy business<br />

owners and their advice to what they referred to as<br />

“the lazy filth” that populated the city’s bars. If you<br />

bought an annual subscription, you got a free ascot<br />

and monocle on a string of platinum silk. If you<br />

didn’t, they’d buy the house next to yours and play<br />

badminton in the front yard until you moved to a new<br />

town.<br />

SQUIRREL FANCY - A regrettable chapter in my<br />

writing career, this monthly magazine was, as the<br />

masthead read, “All About The NUTS!”. People would<br />

buy it, cut the word “NUTS” out, then drop the rest in<br />

the toilet at the store. Some of my best work was in<br />

features like “How to treat gushing bite wounds” and<br />

“You’ll never believe where I found a pecan!”. These<br />

tree rats hate being dressed up in doll clothes for the<br />

covers as well, so they would shred most of the issues<br />

in spiteful vengeance.<br />

HUMAN RESOURCES - Writing for this scandal<br />

sheet was a breeze because I would basically rip on<br />

co-workers and their annoying idiosyncrasies. Weekly<br />

features included “Kathy’s Kackles”, “Nice Attitude,<br />

Denise!”, “Back Room Rumors” and my favorite “Co-<br />

Ed Restroom Fails”. I was told that my “aggressive<br />

use of the term ‘shitass’ and mismanagement of the<br />

lunch HOUR” were the reasons for my dismissal.<br />

Whatevs.<br />

WHISKEY DIARIES - This weekly pamphlet featured<br />

some of my favorite drinks. But there was never<br />

room for the text due to what they told me was<br />

“malfunctioning photo formatting software”. I took that<br />

to mean they hated me so I left a lotta cat poop in the<br />

ceiling tiles. Sniff up, bitches!<br />

I also lost gigs at….<br />

February 1st marked the<br />

return of the Orlando Guitar<br />

Expo to the Central Florida<br />

Fairgrounds. This was the 33rd<br />

year of the two-day event show,<br />

which is presented by promoter Morty<br />

Beckman. It also kicked off the guitar<br />

show season for the year. Hundreds of<br />

dealers from all over the world packed the hall<br />

with thousands of guitars to buy, sell, and trade.<br />

The show is always crowded and packed with tons<br />

of people, But this year, Saturday was extremely busy.<br />

Over the past few years vintage guitars have been on<br />

the decline at the shows, but this show was different.<br />

Many vintage guitars were bought and sold; most of<br />

them were bought by other dealers taking them to<br />

other states.<br />

The vintage market still remains soft, though, and<br />

new vintage reissues still out-sell the real thing. But<br />

this brought hope that the market may be making a<br />

comeback and, with that, the shows will get bigger<br />

and better. So, you may ask, what guitars are showing<br />

signs of a comeback? Well, ‘50s and ‘60s Fender<br />

Telecasters, ‘50s Gibson Les Pauls and ‘60s Mosrite<br />

Ventures models and have shown a slight uptick in<br />

value. There are others, but the best way<br />

to find out what they are really worth is to<br />

12<br />

either take them to a local<br />

used and vintage dealer or<br />

to a show.<br />

Upcoming shows in <strong>March</strong> are the<br />

By<br />

North Carolina show in the awesome<br />

Randy music town of Asheville on <strong>March</strong>14th<br />

Pepper and 15th and then two weeks later at the<br />

Nashville, Tennessee show. Other upcoming<br />

notable shows are the Atlanta Guitar Show June<br />

13th and 14th and the biggest show of the year, the<br />

Dallas International Guitar Festival, May 1st and 2nd.<br />

The Dallas show also features concerts and meetand-greets.<br />

This year features Eric Johnson, Andy<br />

Timmons, Phil X and Eric Gales, among others. This<br />

show is presented by guitar maker and dealer Jimmy<br />

Wallace and is considered the premier event of the<br />

year. If you have to pick just one show, this is the<br />

one to go to. So get out there and check all the cool<br />

guitars awaiting new owners and look for me as I try<br />

to buy, sell and trade at most of these shows.<br />

Randy Pepper is a Freelance Guitarist for hire and<br />

the owner of the Guitar Attic in Holly Hill.


Musical Innuendos<br />

By Samantha Tribble<br />

Hi <strong>Static</strong> <strong>Live</strong> readers. My name is<br />

Samantha and I am beyond excited<br />

to share my weird and innuendofilled<br />

articles with you. I’m schooled<br />

in law and insurance with a passion<br />

for cats and photography. With a bit,<br />

more than a pinch of raunchiness<br />

and an overload of eccentric<br />

music this should be nothing short<br />

of a wild ride. Now for my first<br />

installment of Musical Innuendos.<br />

I don’t know about you but my<br />

pussy is pretty picky. Especially<br />

when it comes to music. Its tastes<br />

are eclectic and often off the beaten<br />

path. Some nights it wants slow<br />

and patient music; other nights it<br />

wants heavy pounding beats. My<br />

kitty is always looking for something<br />

to satisfy its appetite, always<br />

begging for wet food. Whenever<br />

my cat starts whining to be fed I am<br />

reminded of the song ‘Food and<br />

Pussy’ by Dan Reeder, “it’s just the<br />

way God made me”.<br />

Even the most basic cats<br />

need the mood to be<br />

set. Ya know, candles,<br />

hot wax (maybe not…),<br />

and music that makes<br />

14<br />

you tingly all over. Music may be<br />

one of the most crucial details<br />

in any situation. It can make my<br />

cat lean in for more or pull away<br />

quickly as though you’ve offended<br />

its ancestors. Any song by Luther<br />

Vandross will bring your kitty closer<br />

but The Cure’s ‘The Love Cats’<br />

could make it think you’re about to<br />

stuff it in a bag and drown it *wink*.<br />

Besides romance or fear, music<br />

can bring out a plethora of other<br />

emotions. It can make you feel<br />

things deeper than you thought<br />

physically possible. Some music<br />

can make your kitty purr, some<br />

music can make your pussy pump,<br />

some jams can make your cat jump<br />

out of its jammies. Some music puts<br />

my pudenda to sleep, like ‘The Lion<br />

Sleeps Tonight’ - and other songs<br />

- gives it quite the temperature<br />

boost, like ‘Cat Scratch Fever,’ “you<br />

know you got it when you’re going<br />

insane”, insane in the membrane.<br />

Elvis Costello even wrote a song<br />

about the most worshipped creature<br />

on earth; ‘Pads Paws Claws.’ It’s<br />

all “pads, paws, pads, paws, and<br />

claws”; which for some, isn’t exactly<br />

a turnoff. But when you don’t feel<br />

that rough tactics will do and your<br />

furry friend is feeling lazy, turn on<br />

and turn up ‘Nashville Cats,’ by The<br />

Lovin’ Spoonful. When it seems like<br />

all your sloth-like, mooching friend<br />

wants to do is be easy breezy and<br />

just lay there this song will help send<br />

them sky high.<br />

But then you have the cats who<br />

roam the streets always in search<br />

of strange. You wouldn’t want their<br />

answer to, “What’s New Pussycat?”.<br />

It would take too long for them to tell<br />

you who all they’ve been powdering<br />

their nose for. This is the kind of cat<br />

Jack Off Jill might say is a “pussy<br />

superstar”. It’s just best to avoid the<br />

skeeze and mellow on over to Les<br />

Big Byrd’s album They Worshipped<br />

Cats. This line-up will have you<br />

feeling relaxed and lost in space in<br />

no time.<br />

Now take some<br />

time to worship your<br />

sweet kitty and head<br />

back next month to<br />

see what weird thing<br />

I write about next.

GREG DOUGLASS,<br />

Unsung Hero of the<br />

Early San Francisco Rock<br />

Around 1972, with Mistress on the brink of financial<br />

suffocation, Greg began to play gigs with Terry Dolan<br />

of Terry and the Pirates. “I guess you could call me<br />

one of the pirates— Arggh Arggh,” says Greg. With<br />

John Cipollina on lead and Dolan carrying most of the<br />

vocal work, Greg handled the rest of the guitar work,<br />

including slide, bass, fills and rhythm, as well as a<br />

revolving door rhythm section.<br />

By Hank Harrison<br />

Greg Douglass first picked up a guitar when he was<br />

6 years old. During his high school years in Walnut<br />

Creek, California Greg played a lot of Beatles and<br />

Stones; until he heard the hard strains of the highdecibel<br />

bands that began to emerge in the mid- to<br />

late-’60s.<br />

During the Summer of Love (1967) Greg formed<br />

and soon ran away to the big city with the Virtues,<br />

his first band; he moved back home long enough<br />

to get married and have a kid. Over the next year<br />

or two, the Virtues grew into a full-fledged band.<br />

Renamed Country Weather, the four-piece group<br />

of acid-rockers managed to make it onto a few<br />

Fillmore posters. Country Weather grew stormy in<br />

1969 after playing numerous gigs at both Fillmore<br />

West and East, and the Avalon in its heyday. They<br />

filled in gigs at every bar and dance hall in Northern<br />

California. Greg was 18 at the time and itching for<br />

a bigger challenge, but Country Weather was in<br />

the process of whimpering its way into the Fog City<br />

night and Greg wasn’t about to quit music. To keep<br />

the ‘60s energy flowing into the ’70s, Greg formed<br />

a power trio called Mistress. Mistress played a lot<br />

of gigs, experimented with musical forms<br />

and even recorded an unreleased album.<br />

In fact, Mistress did everything but make<br />

money.<br />

22<br />

Greg moved to Marin in 1973 to work with Cipollina<br />

and a few other bands, and to do studio work with<br />

Van Morrison during Morrison’s rebuilding period. This<br />

took him on the road with Morrison for a year until<br />

Van fired the whole band en masse. The band stayed<br />

together, however, and called themselves Sound<br />

Hole. They eventually found themselves a singer—<br />

one Huey Lewis. Sound Hole became The News and<br />

the rest is music history, but Greg continued to evolve.<br />

In 1974, he went inward, primarily to woodshed. In<br />

that Sausalito period he wrote at least fifteen songs -<br />

all brilliant - but for bread and kicks he went out on the<br />

road with Hot Tuna, including Jack Casady and Jorma<br />

Kaukonen. The Hot Tuna vapor lasted almost a year,<br />

during which Jorma and Greg got along famously and<br />

developed lots of double lead licks on Jorma’s favorite<br />

song, “Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burning,”<br />

backed by drummer Bob Steeler.<br />

1975 saw another hiatus. This time Greg traveled<br />

back to Mill Valley and with John Cipollina’s Raven<br />

and appeared on the 1980 album “Raven”. They<br />

jammed all over, starting at the Strawberry Inn, Inn<br />

of the Beginning and The Saloon in North Beach.<br />

This combo sometimes played with Terry Dolan and<br />

sometimes with Nick Gravenites; occasionally with<br />

Peter Albin sitting in on bass.<br />

Greg continued to get better at his art but the stress<br />

of the road and some far too magical flirtations with<br />

drugs caused problems. In spite of the downward<br />

23


sessions with Steve Douglas (no relation), the<br />

legendary saxophone player and key musician in<br />

Phil Specter’s “Wall of Sound.”<br />

ebb, Greg’s genius showed forth in his tune “Jungle<br />

Love,” which he co-wrote with Lonnie Turner and in<br />

2002 was adopted as the theme song for CBS-TV<br />

sitcom, Everybody Loves Raymond. This brought<br />

him into contact with Steve Miller, who did a charttopping<br />

version of the hit. After that, Greg joined the<br />

Steve Miller Band for both studio and concert tours<br />

and featured on Miller’s tenth studio album, Book<br />

of Dreams. The day Greg signed with Steve Miller,<br />

“Keep on Rockin’ Me Baby” went number one on all<br />

the charts while the album went platinum. It was at<br />

this point that Greg wrote “Maelstrom,” a brilliant solo<br />

instrumental.<br />

After Abracadabra, around 1981, Greg recorded with<br />

such greats as Eddie Money, Country Joe McDonald,<br />

Tom Fogerty, Peter Rowan, and Link Wray, touring<br />

with most of them. A 1981 tour through Ireland,<br />

England, France, and Italy with Peter Rowan on<br />

Mandolin and Tex Logan on fiddle ended up with<br />

two of Greg’s tunes featured on an album mixed in<br />

a studio in Rome. A bootleg of this tour recorded at<br />

Slattery’s Pub in Dublin is definitive. His guitar work<br />

on “Refugees” is unbelievable and his melodic, soft<br />

sound comes through on “Raglan Road.”<br />

Upon his return from Europe, Greg did studio gigs and<br />

some touring with Paul Butterfield and Tom Johnston<br />

from the Doobie Brothers.<br />

Greg’s last serious touring gigs were with the Greg<br />

Kihn band, in which Douglass had an equal share.<br />

The first tune he cut with Kihn was “Jeopardy,”<br />

which became a number one international hit. Greg<br />

stayed with Kihn for three albums and four years<br />

(Kihnspiracy, Citizen Kihn, etc.).<br />

Except for a 1989 gig as a salesman for 800 numbers<br />

at AT&T, Greg never stopped rehearsing<br />

and writing. He went on to open for such<br />

artists as Leo Kottke, David Lindley, John<br />

Hammond and Taj Mahal. The biggest<br />

thrills he had at that time were his recording<br />

24<br />

Greg moved to the San Diego area in 1994, where<br />

he remains active as a touring guitarist with such<br />

bands as with Danny Kalb of the Blues Project,<br />

Big Brother and the Holding Company and the<br />

Electric Flag. He is also a studio player and a music<br />

instructor. At 70, he leads his own four-piece group,<br />

The Greg Douglass Band, and continues to play<br />

concerts, clubs and corporate events, spending<br />

about a month each year touring in Europe, primarily<br />

the UK.<br />

Here is a partial listing of albums Greg Douglass has<br />

played on. Information on additional writing credits is<br />

also included.<br />

Solo Albums: 2016 Flight of the Golden Dragon<br />

With The Steve Miller Band: 1977 Book of Dreams<br />

(also co-wrote “Jungle Love”); 1978<br />

Greatest Hits 1974–78.<br />

Douglass also co-wrote two songs: “Something<br />

Special” and “Goodbye Love” on Miller’s 1983<br />

album Abracadabra, as well as “Maelstrom” for his<br />

1986 album, Living in the 20th Century. Additionally,<br />

Douglass’ work with the Steve Miller Band has<br />

been reissued numerous times on greatest hits<br />

compilations.<br />

With the Greg Kihn Band: 1985 Citizen Kihn; 1984<br />

Kihntagious (also co-wrote “Stand Alone” and “One<br />

Thing About Love”); 1983 Kihnspiracy (also co-wrote<br />

“Tear That City Down”); Douglass also co-wrote and<br />

played on “Family Man”, included on Kihn’s 1982<br />

album, Kihntinued.<br />

With Tom Fogerty: 1981 Deal It Out.<br />

With Tom Johnston: 1981 Still Feels Good (also<br />

co-wrote “Wishing”).<br />

With Eddie Money: 1980 Playing for Keeps (also<br />

co-wrote “Trindad”).<br />

With Terry & The Pirates: 1980 The Doubtful<br />

Handshake; 1979 Too Close For Comfort.<br />

A Day in a Life of a Gigging Musician<br />

PLENTY of time to prepare for my gigs next<br />

month. At least, that’s what I told myself last<br />

month when there was some time. But NOW<br />

has come as it always does and I’d better get<br />

cracking. Thing is, sometimes it’s hard to get<br />

moving until there is actually a time crunch. A<br />

deadline looming, if you will. Nothing like having<br />

to learn 10 songs in 8 hours to get the juices<br />

flowing. Not that I’m one to complain, more as to<br />

explain how I get the most out of my own habits.<br />

Driving to my Friday concert, I zoom down the<br />

interstate reminding myself not to speed. I need<br />

to stop by the store and get some strings for my<br />

guitars. Electrics for the Gretsch and acoustic<br />

strings for my Yamaha flat-top. I’ll need at least<br />

two sets of each so I’ll have spares. Get ready<br />

to shell out almost forty bucks. Oh well, easy<br />

come easy go. Probably the tips for my Saturday<br />

afternoon coffee house gig will make up for the<br />

expense. Fingers crossed, I arrive at the concert<br />

hall with just enough time to put on a fresh set of<br />

strings.<br />

A musician has enough on their mind with<br />

musical questions. I don’t want to get bogged<br />

down in the mundane world. Insurance,<br />

mortgages, stocks and bonds. What<br />

about food and shelter in this cruel<br />

world? Will I be able to provide for my<br />

26<br />

family, keep a roof over my head and (egad!)<br />

maybe save a little for a rainy day?. Pondering<br />

the instability of a musician’s life only makes me<br />

nervous. Buy a house, live on the cheap, save<br />

when I can. I set my sights long term so I can<br />

focus on the immediate.<br />

What key should I sing the latest pop song in? If<br />

I use the original key, it’s too high for my voice<br />

(and that of the pop artist, but he got help with<br />

electronic studio wizardry}. I could always go<br />

down an octave, which is still technically the<br />

original key but sounds strange. If I go up a fifth<br />

and sing down an octave from there it works<br />

pretty well. Still a bit high for me, but doable. Only<br />

nine more songs to go and the clock keeps on<br />

ticking.<br />

The time for time off is over and I just keep<br />

slogging until my next day off, which is never.<br />

Classical violin concerts, weddings and planning<br />

my summer tour keep me busy 24/7. Singing for<br />

these bands and being a side-man for the other<br />

ones. Practice and rehearsals, planning and<br />

preparation keeps life exciting. Try to make a few<br />

bucks to keep the wolves at bay. When it seems I<br />

have no time and only a few coins to rub together<br />

I remember I’ve got lots of music in my life and<br />

that’s PLENTY.<br />

317 FLAGLER AVE. NEW SMYRNA BEACH, FL


“These girls are gonna put a<br />

hurtin’ on this world”. This was the<br />

infamous prediction of Billy Ray<br />

Cyrus to our family band on the<br />

27th of February, 1999. Back then<br />

we opened for him in Daytona<br />

Beach under the name “Littil<br />

Women”, kicking off the first night<br />

of Bike Week that year. We mark<br />

this event as a turning point at the<br />

start of our burgeoning careers.<br />

After a successful run of shows<br />

at previous Bike Week Events,<br />

Biketoberfests, and Seafood<br />

Festivals, our local promoter Tom<br />

Celli handpicked us to be the<br />

opener for Billy Ray. Tom Celli<br />

Productions had given us some<br />

real star powered experiences<br />

locally in the business when<br />

we were first starting out. TCP<br />

hired us in the fall of 1997 and<br />

provided us with our first real,<br />

professionally payed performance<br />

experiences and opportunities<br />

for the next two years straight.<br />

Back in the day, Daytona Beach<br />

Street venue shows were major<br />

events in Volusia County and<br />

Tom was an amazing promoter.<br />

TCP never failed to bring in top<br />

artists, and a good sized crowd of<br />

vendors, bikers and music festival<br />

enthusiasts. It was a dream come<br />

true network to be a part of for<br />

newcomers like ourselves. Celli<br />

and his crew were very good to<br />

us and treated us like the stars<br />

we longed to become. I remember<br />

Tom saying to us often, “Don’t<br />

ever forget...this is how you girls<br />

deserve to be treated. Never settle<br />

for less”.<br />

He always provided the best for<br />

us and our entourage. By 99’ he<br />

had us opening for the likes of<br />

Pam Tillis, Daryl Singletary, Bad<br />

Company, and Little Foot but<br />

we were still surprised when he<br />

asked us to open for Billy Ray. He<br />

believed in us and knew<br />

that the next step on our<br />

mile marker goals was<br />

to make a quality “VHS<br />

28<br />

press video” showcasing our act<br />

so we could send it out with our<br />

“demo tape” to booking agents and<br />

record labels (it was the 1990’s<br />

afterall). On opening night of Bike<br />

Week, Celli had hired us a film<br />

crew and gifted us our very first set<br />

of cordless mics for the occasion<br />

so we could sound professional<br />

and do our choreography without<br />

tripping over mic cords. The night<br />

seemed to fly by in a flash of<br />

bedazzled red dresses, heels, long<br />

hair and black cowboy hats. All<br />

I remember is a feeling of being<br />

totally on auto pilot. Everything fell<br />

into place on stage as if we’d been<br />

doing it our whole lives.<br />

By Candice Beu<br />

I know now that we didn’t just get<br />

lucky that night though. That kind<br />

of stage-magic isn’t accidental. It’s<br />

actually the result of putting in tons<br />

of work. My Mom, sisters and I had<br />

been perfecting our performance<br />

techniques as if it were our full<br />

time job. We rehearsed together<br />

every day in the living room and<br />

backyard, for hours on end. We<br />

drove an hour and a half every<br />

weekend to take vocal lessons<br />

with Linda Ronstadt’s vocal coach,<br />

Manny Lujan. Each month, each<br />

week, each day we set new goals<br />

for our group and visualized the<br />

outcome of our labors together.<br />

By the time we got in front of an<br />

audience we were more than<br />

ready to rock it. By the finale of<br />

our set we had totally won over<br />

Billy Ray’s audience! We ended<br />

the show with the reveal of our<br />

6 year old baby sister Gabrielle<br />

(our mascot) who came out from<br />

behind us to sing the last verse<br />

of the last song to thunderous<br />

applause. I still marvel at how my<br />

baby sisters held it together so<br />

well under all the pressure and hit<br />

every one of their marks on such<br />

an important night. We came down<br />

those backstage steps completely<br />

out of breath, with hearts on fire<br />

inside, smothering the little ones<br />

in kisses and squeezing each<br />

other tightly as we congratulated<br />

ourselves. Tom Celli quickly led us<br />

towards a very impressed and very<br />

energetic Billy Ray, who was about<br />

to go on next. He made a little joke<br />

to us as he introduced himself,<br />

saying, “I thought I heard some<br />

angels out there...now how am I<br />

supposed to follow that?” Even<br />

though the crowd was chanting his<br />

name, he still took the time to give<br />

us encouraging words.<br />

He may have been a larger than<br />

life personality but he had the<br />

air of a real down to earth family<br />

man. I spied a blonde Momshell<br />

with a toddler on her hip peeking<br />

out the front windows of his plush<br />

tour bus. Billy Ray waved to them<br />

and told us he was here with his<br />

beautiful wife Tish and his small<br />

children who always traveled with<br />

him (Miley was only a year older<br />

than Gabrielle at the time). The<br />

film crew for our show took the<br />

opportunity to snap a few pictures<br />

and (with his approval) shot our<br />

interaction with the celebrity. Even<br />

in the midst of all the pre-show<br />

chaos, Mr. Cyrus so kindly obliged<br />

our team with a touch of his star<br />

power and even went the extra<br />

mile to give our promo video his<br />

seal of approval, telling the camera<br />

in his most endearing southern<br />

drawl “this here’s the future right<br />

here! These girls are gonna put<br />

a hurtin’ on this world”. This<br />

moment has become a cherished<br />

memory from our early days. It<br />

still makes us smile. Just having<br />

had that interaction in real time<br />

and capturing it on film is truly<br />

one of the best things ever. We<br />

were never big “achy breaky” fans<br />

but we were suddenly star struck<br />

in his presence. He was such a<br />

kind soul who took time to bless<br />

us. His words have since become<br />

a recurring catch phrase for us<br />

during the course of our career.<br />

“Well, Billy Ray did say we were<br />

gonna put a hurtin’ on this world<br />

(wink-wink)”. This little phrase even<br />

got spliced right into our press kit,<br />

knowing it couldn’t hurt to have his<br />

endorsement. And it didn’t.<br />

The video we made that night<br />

was eventually mailed to over 100<br />

people during the next year as<br />

we tried to garner interest in our<br />

Mother-Daughter act. It wasn’t until<br />

we were low on resources, low on<br />

hope and down to one of our very<br />

last tapes that the right connection<br />

clicked into place for us. Our<br />

packet finally got into the hands of<br />

an agent at William Morris Agency,<br />

who got it to famed song writer<br />

Desmond Child, who showed<br />

our tape to Steve Greenberg of<br />

Hanson, Baha Men (and eventual<br />

Jonas Brothers) fame ...and the<br />

rest is Beu Sister history. This<br />

chain of events that (in less than<br />

3 years’ time) brought us to the<br />

signing of our first record deal with<br />

S-Curve Records all began with a<br />

little locally made VHS tape of our<br />

Daytona Beach Bike Week show<br />

and Billy Ray Cyrus’ foretelling of<br />

our family’s future successes.<br />

Many years later, while playing<br />

Radio Disney gigs all over the<br />

country with our songs from<br />

Disney’s “Home on the Range”<br />

and “The Lizzie McGuire Movie”,<br />

we started being asked by our fans<br />

if we knew any Hannah Montana<br />

songs. I remember being like<br />

“who IS this Hannah Montana that<br />

everyone is suddenly SO into?...<br />

I didn’t know. I was nearing 30 at<br />

the time. To our surprise, Hannah<br />

turned out to be Miley Cyrus, Billy<br />

Ray’s “smiley” little kiddo who was<br />

hiding in a tour bus backstage at<br />

our turning point gig so very long<br />

ago!<br />

Life is funny that way. You never<br />

know how experiences will<br />

intersect or whose paths you<br />

might cross at any given time.<br />

In fact, Billy Chapin (one of the<br />

owners of <strong>Static</strong> <strong>Live</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong>)<br />

was the producer of our very first<br />

4 song demo tapes! <strong>Year</strong>s later<br />

we worked together on a song for<br />

a feature film called “Because of<br />

Winn Dixie”. Nowadays, I get to<br />

be part of this venture with him.<br />

Music careers can often come full<br />

circle over time, and have some<br />

surprising twists, turns, and crazy<br />

coincidences. I count on these<br />

moments of synchronicity showing<br />

up in my world and revealing the<br />

deeper connections and meanings<br />

of life to me. I absolutely cherish<br />

them. It has made my precious<br />

time here on earth and my musical<br />

journey such a Beu-tiful ride.<br />

My congrats to all at <strong>Static</strong><br />

<strong>Live</strong> for two wonderful years of<br />

collaboration bringing music,<br />

art, writing and wonderful<br />

synchronicities together in this<br />

incredible publication. The light<br />

within me honors the light in all of<br />

you.<br />

Six Questions With . . . . Scotty Sudakis<br />

I sat down with Scotty Sudakis, songwriter and lead<br />

singer for the local band, Five Time Shag. Scotty<br />

was born in Santa Monica, CA and moved to Volusia<br />

County when he was ten years old. Scotty is from a<br />

musical family, which surrounded him with influences<br />

from an early age.<br />

GW: Scotty, what’s going on with Five Time<br />

Shag right now?<br />

Scotty: Probably the most exciting thing is our six<br />

song EP which just came out on January 23rd. We<br />

recorded with Billy Chapin and <strong>Static</strong> <strong>Live</strong> Music. We<br />

are very pleased with the result, and I hope our fans<br />

will be too. It is a distillation of a lot of hard work,<br />

practice, writing and lyrical expression. We are so<br />

proud of it. It is available on all the usual platforms<br />

- Jukebox, Touchtones, Spotify, iTunes and our Five<br />

Time Shag FaceBook page. We are heading up the<br />

Main Street Music Festival on February 8. Five Time<br />

Shag is also booked for gigs in Orlando and around<br />

Volusia County until December of this year so far. Nice<br />

having that ahead of us. Billy Chapin is currently in<br />

talks to book us as an opening act for larger bands and<br />

bigger venues.<br />

GW: What do you do when you’re not out<br />

gigging with the band, any side hustles?<br />

Scotty: Yes! I’ve been working as a bartender at<br />

Peanuts Sports Bar in NSB for five years now. I love<br />

the people and the vibe of Peanuts. It’s great to be a<br />

part of that family and also be able to do some gigs<br />

there with FTS. When time permits, I’ve gotten into<br />

working with some local musician friends to explore<br />

other genres. I also have been writing for <strong>Static</strong> <strong>Live</strong><br />

<strong>Magazine</strong> from time to time. Writing is a nice creative<br />

outlet for me, and I truly enjoy it. I play the piano too,<br />

so that relaxes me.<br />

GW: As an artist, are there any other art forms<br />

that interest you?<br />

Scotty: More than the forms, I am interested in the<br />

processes and mindsets that move other artists to<br />

create. I have much respect for other musicians, as<br />

well as painters, video artists, actors and others. I<br />

look into what they do to make their mind concepts<br />

flow into tangible form. I sometimes look at how they<br />

use their God-given talent to express their feelings and<br />

messages to us. It’s fascinating to me how they do it. I<br />

am also interested in how musicians hone their craft to<br />

improve their style and presentation to their listeners. I<br />

constantly look at my own art as well, hoping to bring<br />

out the best music that is inside me.<br />

GW: What music do you listen to at home?<br />

Scotty: Depends on the mood, I guess. If I want<br />

retrospective, I may listen to Frank Sinatra or Tony<br />

Bennett. That music, while appearing simple, is very<br />

layered and complex. If I just want driving lyric, it’s<br />

Anderson Paak. Also, NPR has a series called Tiny<br />

Desk that is excellent. If I’m a bit sad, Elliot Smith or<br />

any emo music is helpful. It’s so stripped down and<br />

raw that it helps me deal with my feelings honestly. At<br />

home, I always listen to music that is different than<br />

what FTS does. I like to step back and study the other<br />

forms.<br />

GW: You seem like a chill guy. Is there<br />

anything that bugs you?<br />

Scotty: People fighting and not trying to understand<br />

one another. We are all different and always will be.<br />

So many people judge others by superficial things and<br />

they don’t bother to dig deeper and see what’s inside<br />

the person. But, if we put our differences aside and<br />

focus on our shared views, we can begin to understand<br />

and accept one another as we are. Finding acceptance<br />

is the key to getting along.<br />

GW: What’s the best advice you ever got?<br />

Scotty: My Grandfather, Eugene Alexander Bruce, told<br />

me, “Always show up on time or fifteen minutes early,<br />

do the best you can at whatever job you have, and if<br />

you see something that you desire, go for it. Never<br />

have regrets because you didn’t try.”<br />

GW: Thanks for your time, Scotty.<br />

On the Block<br />

By Jenny McLain (Editor, <strong>Static</strong> <strong>Live</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong>)<br />

A little over five years ago I met Sean Impara, the<br />

Publisher of <strong>Static</strong> <strong>Live</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong>. At the time, he<br />

was booking a lot of music around Volusia County<br />

(but considerably less than he books now). I wanted<br />

to see some of the artists he had been telling me<br />

about and one day I offered to help him keep the gigs<br />

updated on his website . . .<br />

Little did I know, I was<br />

witnessing the beginning<br />

of <strong>Static</strong> <strong>Live</strong> Media Group,<br />

<strong>Static</strong> <strong>Live</strong> Music and<br />

<strong>Static</strong> <strong>Live</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong>. As<br />

his booking business grew<br />

bigger and bigger, Sean<br />

always talked about starting<br />

a music magazine in our<br />

area. I thought it was a<br />

cool idea, although a big<br />

undertaking. I will admit, it took some convincing on<br />

his part to get me to agree to contribute to the project,<br />

but I finally had to acknowledge that I could make a<br />

unique contribution to it.<br />

In the meantime, Sean joined forces with musician/<br />

music producer/entrepreneur Billy Chapin to record<br />

some of the vast local talents. I remember being<br />

nervous the day I was invited to have lunch with<br />

the two of them. It was about a year later that we<br />

published the first edition of <strong>Static</strong> <strong>Live</strong> <strong>Magazine</strong>. I’ll<br />

1. What does Post Malone’s face tattoo say?<br />

2. What artist did Travis Scott sign a record deal with?<br />

3. Which of Ed Sheeran’s hit songs stayed at number 1 on Billboard Hot 100 for 16 weeks back in<br />

2017? What is the title of YNW Melly’s 2019 hit song featuring Kanye West?<br />

4. What is the title of Billie Eilish’s song to feature in the <strong>2020</strong> James Bond film?<br />

5. Who was the lead singer of Nirvana?<br />

6. What was the title of MC Hammer’s hit single from the ’90s?<br />

give credit where credit is due – Sean certainly knows<br />

how to assemble and manage a team of people. The<br />

first issue was printed two years ago, in <strong>March</strong> of<br />

2018 and we are beyond proud of the product it has<br />

become.<br />

We want to extend a special thanks to our<br />

contributors, our business partners, our advertisers,<br />

our fans, local venues and<br />

musicians, and everyone<br />

who supports our project<br />

each month. We have had<br />

requests for hard copies<br />

from all over the country,<br />

and we have even seen a<br />

couple of issues listed for<br />

sale on eBay in the United<br />

Kingdom!<br />

If you want to be a part of <strong>Static</strong> <strong>Live</strong>, you can contact<br />

us through our website, staticlivemag.com. You can<br />

send photos for the Snap It feature, a suggestion of<br />

VADER, abysmal dawn, hideous divinity<br />

Photo Credit Nuclear Blast<br />

On Tuesday, February 11th, Polish death metal band Vader<br />

brought their form of horror and war music to The Haven in Winter<br />

Park, along with California’s Abysmal Dawn and Italy’s Hideous<br />

Divinity for some serious head thrashing. All the opening bands<br />

did impressive sets to get the crowd and the pit rolling. Vader did<br />

an impressively long set from their 37-year career that included<br />

many early classics like “Dark Ages”, “Silent Empire “, “Incarnation”,<br />

“Sothis” and “Reborn In Flames “. Storm Trooper anthem “Triumph<br />

Of Death “ lit the crowd ablaze. They also did a killer cover of Judas<br />

Priest’s “Steeler” to end the show and to send all parishioners on<br />

their journey home.<br />

New School Album of the Month<br />

Orphan Stomper (Australia)<br />

*Deathcore*<br />

Releases:<br />

November 13, 2019 – Feasting<br />

December 28, 2019 – Flay and Spray<br />

This 8-song self-titled album was released on February 18,<br />

<strong>2020</strong>. Mixing classic Death Metal with force, Brad Evans’ vocals<br />

do not disappoint, with brutal guitar lows and extremely slicing<br />

highs. Combined with Lachlan Groenstein’s insane drum patterns<br />

and driving guitars, this Australian duo deserves listening to. It<br />

definitely delivers some thunder from down under……<br />

Old School Album of the Month<br />

When you think of extreme bass playing, one must consider the<br />

pummeling roar of Steve DiGiorgio, bassist extraordinaire of many<br />

ensembles including legendary bands Death, Autopsy, Obituary,<br />

Testament, and Control Denied to name a few. Where would this<br />

freak of the fretless finger plucking madness get his start? With<br />

the California thrash/death foursome Sadus. “Swallowed In Black<br />

“ is Sadus’ 2nd outing and is full of technically oriented bombs<br />

to make your head explode. Released in 1990 on Roadrunner<br />

Records, Sadus uses numerous tempo changes with extreme<br />

complexity to break all the land speed records known to man.<br />

“Swallowed In Black” is the death metal musician’s dream theater.<br />

Intro “Black” along with “Man Infestation”, “ The Wake”, “Oracle<br />

Of Obmission “ and the minute-long classic “In Your Face “ are<br />

digesting ditties to soothe one’s, dirty soul.<br />
