Linda told me Janis drove the stone across the USA by herself in that painted porche…
Linda and Janis had planned to do it together…
they both studied the blues (self taught)… Ma Rainy, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday
and lots of others less known… it’s in the books now, easy to find…
Linda and i went to the grave two or three times…
Janis had made a promise to put a stone on her grave… Bessie “died on the steps of a philadelphia hospital, Janis Joplin put a tombstone on the grave… and the smooth… tell me what happened to the smooth… ” from a Linda Waldron song… somewhere i have a copy…

Janis used to pick Linda up at the sanfrancisco airport in this porche, too…
she’d throw a fur coat over her just from honolulu and they’d party…

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen 2010 .MP3

The Dave Version
David wrote us and said:
Your interpretation of the meaning of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman” is incorrect. Merry in the old english of this carol did not mean “Happy” it meant “Mighty” or “Powerful” (Think Robin Hoods Merry Men – They weren’t happy because they were wearing tights you know they were a powerful fighting unit) The word “Rest” in the old english also meant to invest a property in or in other words to “make”

So the first line of the carol in modern English would be “God Make You Mighty Gentlemen” Similarly, the term “Merry Christmas” means have a “Powerful” Christmas. Kind of gives the phrase a whole new meaning doesn’t it?
