Leslie West of Mountain.

Saw them in 1971 and it was great. We always said West was the great guitar over 300 pounds. Better is that he was really Leslie Weinstein and he bought his first guitar with his Bar Mitzvah money.

And if you've never read the story behind the title Nantucket Sleighride (To Owen Coffin). Click his name to read the unbelievable tale.

600,000 died in the US civil war.  Obviously, that war lasted more than 4 years, but the total population was much lower.  The 1918 flu killed about 675,000 Americans and the population was just over 100 million, so fewer than 1/3 of today’s population.
This pandemic is pretty awful also.  
meanwhile we need to distribute the vaccines and administer them way faster.

Michael Apted. While Coal Miner's Daughter, an OK movie, is perhaps his most well know film (though I do love Levon Helm in this movie) and his Up movies are known to even casual followers of documentary films, I love him for his work on both Rome and Masters of Sex. Unfortunately he was not able to pull off translating the unique Gorky Park to the theatrical movie screen.
