Santacon is one of the many strange things that goes on in New York. Basically loads of egits all meet up in the city dressed as Santy. Many people choose to get shit faced and go from bar to bar acting the maggot. So if you feel like dressing up in red and don't want to get chased by the bulls in Millickstown head to NYC around the Christmas.
Either some bastard robbed it or me being some stupid bastard lost it but I have had to purchase my third Iphone. After going without for 3 days I cannot do without.
I went to the Greenwich Connecticut store and they totally messed up, the phone wouldn't scan and they wiped my information and after a 2 hour experience I still walked away empty handed except for the $100 bag of Iphone goodies I got because the fecked up. Later myself and Bridie went the the Westchester Apple store were they got me up and running in 5 minutes. Moral of the story is don't be a toolbox and loose your Iphone
Deadly tune and nice video from Throw Me The Statue. Throw Me the Statue is an indie pop group from Seattle, Washington, United States which consists of singer/songwriter/guitarist Scott Reitherman and a revolving lineup of musicians and formed in 2005. TMTS’ debut record “Moonbeams” was issued in 2008. It features the single “Lolita”. The band’s new EP, “Purpleface” was released in early 2009.

Years ago I heard this song and could not find out who it was, you have to remember that those were the days before Shazam. So much has happened since BRAN VAN 3000 released their debut CD, GLEE. They've watched as their first single, Drinking In L.A., became a staple at stations like ENERGY 108 and climbed its way to #3 on the national campus charts. Shortly after, the video went straight into medium rotation at MUCHMUSIC and later, graduated to heavy. Thus putting Bran Van 3000 on the musical wagging dogs tail.

I couldnt find an original video but here is the song "News" from Tune Yards the class new band. Possessing an expansive sound that marries a coarse folk ingenuity with the bold pop sensibility of an R&B siren, BiRd-BrAiNs was assembled with a staunch DIY aesthetic. Recording herself using a digital voice recorder and produced using shareware mixing software, she was described by Stereogum as “a self-contained Sublime Frequencies compilation, jumping between blues, African tunes, shiny reggae-esque sprawls, and lo-fi folk”, infusing the worldly sonic palette of M.I.A. or post-punk pioneers The Raincoats.
Having played across the U.S. and taken SXSW and ATP by storm, tUnE-yArDs will be touring Europe throughout September with Dirty Projectors. The album ranges from the surreal to the sublime, with ‘Lions’ described by Pitchfork as “halfway between a singsong schoolyard rhyme and a graveyard blues” whilst ‘Jamaican’ could be the blueprint to a Timbaland-produced gem with it’s ricocheting drums pattern and intoxicating tape loops.
The record receives a limited edition CD screen-printed release, prior to a full release later this year.

When you think of Palm Beach, Florida, what comes to mind? Palm trees swaying gently in the balmy breeze? Scantily-clad bikini buxom babes rollerblading down an infinite slab of coral-colored concrete? How about anthemic, bombastic, life-affirming indie pop? If the latter didn’t occur to you, let us introduce you to Surfer Blood: they call West Palm Beach home and, while still in their early 20s, have penned an album worth of catchy, summery indie songs that even the most hook-laden power pop band. Rockon the catchy riff in the middle.
The hillarious Hills spoof. !!! Thanks Frankie "peanut" Mc Cague.
Cant believe this is the first Bob Dylan tune that I put on the blog. I feckin sin I say, a sin. I remember the good old days back in Ardee when first hearing Bob. You know the story about when the Beatles met him and they started smoking weed, kinda the same thing for me except all I had to do was hear him. Bob you bastard !! The last line of the tune really hit home for me when returning to Ardee after being on vacation in New York many years back.
I have to say I'm not the biggest gangsta shit music fan but I cant help like the tune from Kid Cudi, Its probably the fact that he is aided by Ratatat and MGMT.
Cool Tune !!! Smoke em.
I first got to lovin Weezer back in about ninty three with there song Buddy Holly. They are still pumping out great tunes but I must admit I think they got a little to poppy the past few years but whatever, I love the new tune, enjoy !
It’s a chorus of voices, a lot of reverb echo, some electronics of the messed up cheap variety, or toy pianos. It’s far away…a little underwater. A lot of noise and yelling, a garage a thon, sounds recorded live in that way that most live stuff doesn’t come close to. From Sacramento, CA

Atlas Sound is the solo project of Bradford Cox, the striking and eccentric vocalist for experimental indie rocker act Deerhunter. Cox was born in 1982 in Athens, GA, a town whose burgeoning music scene greatly influenced the singer. He identified with the B-52's while growing up, particularly the late Ricky Wilson, and co-founded Deerhunter with drummer/keyboardist Moses Archuleta in 2001. Deerhunter released two full-length albums and an EP before taking a break in 2007, with the bandmembers citing a desire to sort out their personal lives in the interim. Cox shifted his focus to Atlas Sound, having already issued a split 12" vinyl and a pair of EPs under the same moniker. Molding his sound from a wide range of influences -- including doo wop, electronica, and Elvis Presley -- Cox then set to work on Atlas Sound's full-length debut, Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel. The album appeared in early 2008 and received strong reviews, fueling Cox's decision to quickly begin work on a second album. Later that year, however, an unfinished copy of the intended sophomore album was leaked from Cox's MediaFire account, causing the exasperated singer to consider abandoning the project altogether. He eventually returned to the material, polished its rough edges, and released the finished product -- now titled Logos -- in 2009. Andrew Leahey, All Music Guide
TOKYO POLICE CLUB started by accident one day in the ordinary suburb of Newmarket when Greg, Josh, Dave, and Graham decided that they missed playing music together, their previous band having broken up several months before. The four gathered in Josh's basement, plugging in instruments and making up songs almost at random, with no goal but to recapture the magic that they felt making music together. By the time summer came, TPC had began quietly to play shows in the Toronto area, shows at which the very few people in attendance seemed impressed by what they saw. The band seemed likely to end here, with the various members preparing to go their separate ways in the fall, when fate intervened in the form of an invitation to play the Pop Montreal festival. Packing their instruments and girlfriends into a tiny university residence room, TPC spent a week immersed in music, spending days lazily wandering the streets of Montreal and nights rehearsing loudly in the tiniest of spaces, and topping it off in style with a sold out show that saw the band play for the first time to an audience that was actually interested. A few weeks later, all four had agreed that it was time to break their mother's hearts and pursue that most elusive of pipe dreams: a career in the music business.
they started the band in 2001. Actually, Adam (the singer) and Ted (the bass man) started it and after only a few seconds Carl (the guitar player) joined them. They had all been friends since they were rather small and they loved the same records so there was really no point in not starting a band. Then Eric (the drummer) and finally Bebban (the keyboards etc. player) came along. They were two more friends from a rather early stage in life. Eric played the drums like some kind of a creature while Bebban was getting awfully tired of walking around the city on her own waiting for people to come out of their garages, so there was really no point in not asking them to join the band.

I really love the the muffled guitar riff from the first single from The Love Language's self-titled debut album. The band is drummer Thomas Simpson, organist Kate Thompson, bassist Joshua Pope, keyboardist/vocalist Missy Thangs, guitarist/vocalist Junis Beefmonth, and guitarist/percussionist/vocalist Jordan McLamb. Rock on with a hard on.

The Dears have not gone away and come back, but they have been transformed: by experience, by necessity, by life and its manifold curveballs. And with their new album, MISSILES, they have emerged as elder statesmen of the Canadian indie rock renaissance. They have been to awards shows and have been nominated for prizes, they have shared the stage with musical heroes, and they have sold out shows around the world. They have been recognized, mythologized, and eulogized. They have returned home to Montreal triumphant, and they have suffered defeat. But with defeat as their muse, they have grown and matured. And they have decided to stay.
It's been a couple of weeks since doing a blog so I'm trying to get back into it.
Ive been back in Ardee and have had my thirty second birthday, trying to catch up on work, got a new RC car, new PS3 games and I heard some class new bands....Oh yeah my parents where in New York visiting me. She has been busy.

Brians model boat "The U.S.S Contribution" was placed in the local bar today. High above the crowd she stands with ancor away and loaded with barrels of whiskey, she watches over the civilians with a steady eye. Lovely
With a round of applause from the crowd Brian laced the ship where she will lay in wait for the rest of her days, or until some cunt robs it.
Go on the Caso, a lot of time went into her ( Not Siobhan ) LOL
Im proud of you !!
Now Fuck off !! (in brick tops voice )
A piano, drums and a voice, that's it, so simple but so deadly, A tune from Kate Nash from 2007 on Jools Holland. You cant help but like this song but the pumpkin song was kinda shit. Hope she comes out with some new stuff soon. Go on Kate ya tramp ya !!!
I won't lie, I didnt like Bloc Partys latest album but I love "Silent Alarm". When I first got Xbox 360 I downloaded the CD into the console and I would play "Need for speed Underground" while listening to "Silent Alarm". You wouldn't think that the song would go well with a fast paced driving game but if you listen to the album and not the stripped down acoustic version you will see what I mean.

One of the things I like about radio controlled trucks is the fact that you can up grade all your stuff and create your own designs. In the pictures you see my Traxxas Rustler but I changed it to look like a kind of mad army pick up.
I bought the body as a clear shell and I came up with the army theme.
Usually when you by a shell it comes with decals from the company that advertises the make of shell but I came up with an idea to make my own decals.
I bought sticker paper in Staples, sticker paper is paper that lets you print your desired picture, then peel the backing and hey presto you have a sticker. The only problem is that the ink runs, so after printing i covered the desired picture or text with two inch scotch tape which keeps the water out and the ink in ( so cliche ).
Then a steady hand with an exacto knife and you can have whatever decal you like.
For my truck I went with the old Spitfire air plane with it's intimidating teeth and flattering 1920's pin up girl, also I added the Army star.
I'm still not finished but I think it's the best one I have created yet.
I'm planning to enter competitions when I get me skills down.
Well holy Jaysis, first Marathon became Snickers, then we lost Opal Fruits to the dreaded Starburst and now even the auld Mckado is lost to the advertising Mogul man in the corner office.
What about the years we heard the song
"Kimberly Mckado and Coconut Cream, some one you love can love some one, That's just a memory now....what a load of bollox.
Actually before doing a wee bit of research I always thought that the "Kimberly" was the make of the biscuit company, I didn't realize that "Kimberley" "Mckado" and "Coconut Cream" where three different bickies.
Whatever I suppose I must be getting old !!
Leave it to fellow Ardee man Peter Duff to post this awesome mash up by "overdub".
Almost a perfect combination, just like carrots and parsnips. Enjoy.

Jon and Ponch never once pulled a weapon on anyone during the entire series!
Jon's unit ID was "Seven Mary Three"; Ponch's was "Seven Mary Four".
After CHiPs new episodes left the air, the show went into syndication and was called, "CHiPs Patrol".
Erik Estrada's character was originally supposed to be of Italian descent with the name Poncherelli. When Estrada was cast, they simply changed the last letter to an "o".
Randi Oakes joined the CHiPs cast in the third season. In episode #35 (2nd season), however, she first appeared on the series as a car thief named Kim! Randi was a top fashion model before becoming an actress. She didn't remain in showbiz long after CHiPs ended but it was a delight to see her on 3 episodes of "Fantasy Island" and 2 episodes of "The Love Boat"!
Erik Estrada actually got in an extremely serious motorcycle accident while filming one episode but, thankfully, he recovered!
The chase scenes and multi-vehicle crashes were filmed on freeways that were under construction but almost finished.
There was an actor in the pilot episode named Jonathon Baker! That was the nephew of CHiPs' creator, Rick Rosner. Jonathon played a little boy that the guys stopped for riding his bicycle on a highway. And, of course, he was also the source of Larry Wilcox's character's name!
In order to keep production costs down, the patrol cars used on CHiPs were used ones that they bought at auctions. If you know your cars, you'll see that they are always 3-5 years older than the date that the episode was produced.

What does 'CULCHIE' mean?
The Oxford English Dictionary defines a Culchie as :
"One who lives in, or comes from, a rural area; a (simple) countryman (or woman), a provincial, a rustic."
The 20TH ANNUAL CULCHIE FESTIVAL will be held on OCTOBER 23-25 OCT 2009 in Ballyjamesduff. This festival in quite the spectical with such events as Camel Racing ( Capall na gCulchie ),The wellie toss and The Great Honda Step-Thru Run.In 2008 The Step-Thru Run achieved a new Irish Record with 481 Honda Step-Thru Bikes. Basically The Step-Thru run is a clatter of culchies all riding there Honda 50s at the same time, a real crowd pleaser.
Rules of Competition
1 No Dubs allowed to enter.
2 No Women allowed to enter
3 Contestants can be married or single, age 21 or over.
4 It would definitely be considered an asset if you were able to entertain at will, at any time of the day or night, with a story, song, musical instrument or a dance or just be a general character.
If you u fancy a mad weekend head to Ballyjamesduff Co.Cavan for The Culchie Festival.
For those who have yet to stumble across The Big Pink’s somewhat gargantuan blast, imagine The Teardrop Explodes being played by MBV whilst Suicide man the mixing desk; a concoction of sounds that manages to be both affecting and tooth-tremblingly huge at the same time.
Interpol. A name generally associated with international espionage, covert operations, and distant ports of call. Yet since Interpol, the band, swept up listeners with their 2002 Matador debut 'Turn On The Bright Lights,' the moniker has gained new associations as well. It still carries global recognition. For the past two years, one could hardly open a magazine, turn on a radio or television, or step into a nightclub, without hearing Interpol's dark, gripping songs or seeing their countenances. Despite this high level of media exposure, the quartet never lost the tension and complexity that won them acclaim worldwide.

The Traxxas Rustler is some yoke boy ! 45mph until I get the new engine, it will then do seventy plus mph. I custom sprayed the body and got a seven cell battery which took the bus from 35 mph to 45 mph. She's a hell of a yoke ta move, sure she'd cut the legs fuckin clean from under ya. The Ardee accent really shows through in the video which adds the the schpeed of the bus !! Ya need a schteady composure to operate such an animal of a yoke.

Congratulations President Obama on winning The Pea's Prize. Mr President, a huge fan of the mushy pea won the award for eating mushy peas every day for five years solid, unlike his mushy feces I imagine. So a toast to you Mr President but I must ask the question, If your eating the Mushy peas with the spuds and sausages, is Michelle eating the beans ? It must make for an interesting bathroom experience. Well at least you wont have to pay to get the White House pebble dashed.

In New York one of the things that piss's me f is the amount of adds in a half hour show. Usually the title song plays, then an ad then in a half hour show there is about three ads altogether.With the torturous ads in the U.S it is a welcome to have an auld Scotsman involved. One of my fave ads.. "Think with your dipstick Jimmy".
Local Ardee man Ged Murray (Doctor Murrays son) and his friend Ian Duffy just finished college, having studied film for the past few years. They must be doing something right as there graduation film is in the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival (nyfilmvideo.com) from the 22nd to 29th October.
The basic plot of the movie is as follows. A shy charity worker must overcome his social awkwardness, fear of needles and, above all, massive blood loss to win the affections of a girl that works in the blood bank.
True to form women will bleed you dry.I am dying to see the movie and hope to attend and catch up with Ged.
Below are the details, be there or be a rhombus triangle.

Right on Dynamite is a three man rock ‘n roll combo, currently residing in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Dan, Nicky, and Jon have been mates since high school, playing together in a couple of other outfits before finally taking the reins themselves as the mighty RoD. They’ve been making a righteous racket ever since, busting out exceptionally addictive guitarpop fuelled by scrappy energy, sly wit, and a seemingly endless supply of hip-shakin’, hand-clappin’ hooks.

Yes it's true, Dicky is the real Dog Whisperer. As a child Dicky would hang out with the monks in Collon and this is where he first came across Collon animal shelter and his love for the dog.
Mastering his skills took an extensive training regeme which the monks in collon helped a great deal. Dicky was amazed at the monks code of silence and this gave Dicky a sensory overload. Dicky began to study the Koran,The Kamasutra,The littlest Hobo and Lassie and this is how he became the Dog Whisperer we all know. Thats where Dickys famous phrase came from "If the monks can do it, I can"
Dicky took his skills to L.A and the rest is history.
You Go Dicky !!!

I took my grandad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes (he is
84).We decided to grab a bite at the food court.
I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him.
The teenager had spiked hair in all different colours: green, red,
orange, and blue. My grandad kept staring at him.
The teenager would look and find him staring every time.
When the teenager had enough, he sarcastically asked:
'What's the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?'
Knowing my grandad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on
his response; knowing he would have a good one.
And in classic style he did not bat an eye in his response:
'Got stoned once and f*cked a peacock. I was just wondering if you were

The Louisville, Kentucky USA-based psychedelic Alternative-Rock outfit My Morning Jacket was originally formed in 1998 by singer+guitarist & songwriter Jim James, guitarist Johnny Quaid, bassist Two-Tone Tommy and drummer J. Glenn. Grand lads with lovely beards. Go on ya hairy whores !
The Velvet Underground never sold many records, but, as many have said, it seems like every one of the group's fans went out and started a band. While The Velvet Underground's songs were constructed on the same three chords and 4/4 beat employed by most late-'60s rockers, the Velvets were unique in their intentional crudity, in their sense of beauty in ugliness, and in their lyrics.
The Velvets then took on Steve Sesnick as their manager and as a result the band split up because Lou Reed was having arguments with Sesnick.

Recently on my return to Ardee Co Louth I was warned about all the changes I was to see in the past ten years. I must admit that I was blown away by the bypass and some of the lovely restaurants but the biggest thing that blew my mind was Paul Lanneys Super Value Space station. The state-of-the-art 2670 sqm spacestaion store is a flagship for the Musgrave Group's new concept spaceship store roll-out. The move completes the first phase of an ambitious plan to develop a 10,460 sqm shopping centre space station scheme in the heart of Ardee.
The promoters of the development are Escadia Ltd, headed by Paul and Margaret Lanney, who have successfully operated the SuperValu Space Space station on Market Street, Ardee for over 20 years. Speaking to Paul Lanney he has said that "the space station has brought mucho De Nero's to The Flamboyant town of Ardee and that he hopes to attract even more spacers to the town". "Ardee is a savage spot sez Lanney" and he is thankful that he could donate a load of bread and freshly made apple sauce to the "Fattening Of The Pig" benefit for MS Ireland" The annual Fundraiser which will be held in The Bailey Ardee every year. Go On Paul Ya whore ya and keep the spacers coming..... Hell knows Ardee needs them
Random Jewish man I snapped in the city. Just like "Doug The Head" from Snatch. Kinda!! Doug the head from Snatch also known as Frank from Eastenders. In Eastenders Frank has come back from Spain and is rebuilding his life in Somerset. He starts out by selling motors, but branches out by buying a seedy club - Frank's Empire Club. One of Dougs most memerble lines in Snatch was " Well it's not a free shop, is it? So fuck off!"

Ellen The Degenerate is going to be the new judge on Idol. I think its a bit of a media thing to be honest. The ratings dropped so they decided, lets boot the stupid one and bring in a new judge and mix it up with some guest judges along the way including Posh Spice who I believe was supposed to be as dry as a nuns fanny. I guess we will see in a few months.
Guitarist-vocalist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney are The Black Keys.
One of my favorite songs "Act Nice And Gentle" is a soulful trip from the bands home town of Ohio to the southern laid back swamps of the Mississippi. Similar in soul to a spin from the long womans grave all the way to Bettystown.
"you don’t need no fancy clothes
where’d you get them, goodness knows?
just show some civility.
act nice, act nice and gentle to me".
I met Father Vincent on a night out in Manhatten. Father Vincent has a some what strange life. Normal man by day, but by night Father Vincent is a vampire ! Hosting nights at his local bar "Ottos Shrunken Head" Although not really a live music venue in the traditional sense. Otto's quickly became a fixture in the East Village music scene hosting an incredibly diverse group of bands playing everything from Lounge/Exotica, Rockabilly, Punk, Country, Rock, Garage, Metal, Surf and Acoustic/Singer/Songwriter. Ottos is situated at 538 E 14th St. Check it out !!

Paul Hogan, Hulk Hogan, Benny Grogan ?? No I cry !!!!!!! It's Dicky once more, in his astonishing blockbuster role as Dicky Dundee from Australia.
You all remember the blockbuster movie "Crocodile Dundee" starring Paul Hogan. Well in fact my sources tell me that Paul Hogan was so petrified by crocodiles that Peter Faiman the director of the movie hired the one and only Dicky to play all the dangerous parts in the movie.
You see Paul Hogan had developed a major complex from watching to many episodes of Neighbours and drinking to much Fosters lager that he had become paranoid about handling crocs. He feared that they would rip him to shreds while filming and his chiseled looks would go astray.( Little did he know at the the time that his entire face would become a total plastic catastrophe in the future ) anyway..........
In the 80s Dicky had traveled to New York in search of a career in acting amongst other things.
One night while Dicky played around the bars in his stomping ground of the east village he happened to bump into the famous directer Peter Faiman.
Faiman who directed the Neil Diamond 'Thank You Australia' Concert (1976) was a local celeb and was intrigued by Dicky as he walked into the bar. Surrounded by beautiful woman and carrying a stick to defend himself, Dicky couldn't help but draw the gaze of any innocent bystander.
Faiman approached Dicky and asked him to be a double for Paul Hogan, Dicky being Dicky decided to play the role of the rugged Australian wondering the streets of New York.
And there you have it. Dicky blows our minds once more with his talented self..
You Go Dicky !!

Florence and the Machine are Florence Welch and a collaboration of other artists who provide backing music for her voice.
Kinda reminds me of Kate Nash in looks and her "hows you father hey" accent. While attending Alleyn's School in Dulwich, London an exclusive private school Welch was in a punk "musical collective" entitled The Toxic Cockroaches.
Buy Florence and The Machine's Album "Lungs" from iTunes NOW!!!

Fece eating, carpet ripping, beggar, drooler, needy, cryer, noisy, A.D.D, no balls, funny eye, piece missing from his tongue, cock looks like lipstick but after all that, he is still our Monkey and the house wouldn't be the same without his stupid self being around. Monkey...You Suck, but your too cute.
When I heard this tune first in 2006 I had a feeling Dizzy Rascal was gonna be big, so it was in July 7 2008. The track "Dance Wiv Me" became Jo Whiley's Pet Sound for the week beginning June 2 2008. The single charted at Number 1 on download sales alone, a week before its physical release. His next two singles, Bonkers and Holiday, were also released under the record label, and these two again charted at Number 1.
Ah Blur, I think I have seen them at least three times and every time fantastic.
I remember in about ninety three or ninety four it was a battle between Oasis and Blur for the top of the UK charts. Im happy they got together again as I wasnt the biggest Gorillaz fan. Enjoy Tender by Blur on one of the greatest music TV shows ever, Jools Holland.
Not to be confused with Frogger Wards father, the band from the eighties Haircut 100 do Love plus one. A fine tune at that. Proving that the eighties where successful for somthing at least. Synthisizers and all you gotta love this tune !!!

The one we all aspire to be, the one we admire the most, the one we crave, Yes it's Dicky!! Amongst other things Dicky has the ability to hit a tennis ball at one hundred plus miles an hour which makes him ace every serve. In fact that's where he got his nickname "Dicky The Ace". his love for tennis was indescribable but because of his connection with the K.G.B Dicky could never go public with his tennis skills and never make his dream of winning the "U.S open" complete.
He decided a disguise would be in order, So he thought to himself "what better disguise could a white male have"???? Then it came to him "I could make myself look like a black female tennis player and go by the name of Serena" Brilliant sez he and of he went and won the Open.
The saga continues and the legend grows stronger with every tale to be told.
The picture above was issued to me by the K.G.B, it shows a rare shot of Dicky slicing a ball in training.
You Go Dicky !!

At work there is a dog called Charlie, a giant dog ! He is only ten months old and gonna get bigger. In the picture Charlie is up on the couch in the basement while we rest after lunch. He is very friendly and a big soft whore.
Women want him, men don't ! But one more of the spectacular things the great Dicky has done was started the festival we all wanted to be at,Woodstock. In the sixty's Dicky started out his musical career by jamming in the streets. He had a lot of success in the square in Ardee and could afford anything his heart desired, but that simply wasn't enough.
Dicky wanted to bring music to the world and hitched a ride to Clogherhead where he was stowed away a local fishing boat.
Many weeks later and wreaking of rotten fish Dicky arrived in the small port of Woodstock. There where many similarity's to Ardee which made Dicky comfortable and he started to busk on the streets. Slowly but surly the smell of rotten fish had disappeared and the smell of fresh fish surrounded him as woman dropped at the sight of the glowing Adonis that stood playing the guitar before them. Word spread fast about the Ardee native and swarms of people came from across the length and breathe of the land they call America. Soon the little town of Woodstock was filled with hundreds of thousands of people including musicians such as Jimmy Hendrix and Richie Havens.
So you can put the creation of Woodstock down on the list of fantastic things Dicky
has done. In the picture above we see Dicky and some unknown broad in the fields surrounding the stage at Woodstock....You Go Dicky
