SECTION TWO: ENTERTAINMENTS
BDPOE's ROCK Update:
ROCK TALK with bdpoe
Well its October and you know what that means. Time to get
ready for Christmas! Seems the local stores are sneaking
out the yule tide inventory earlier each year. So are the
record companies and rock artists, making the next few months
the hottest time of the year in music.
By the time you read this, many new releases will be arriving
at local retailers. There are going to be several reissues and
compilations by groups who haven’t performed in years or have
long since left the building. Just how many ways can you
re-package a Beatles’ album anyway ???
Paul McCartney’s RUN DEVIL RUN, is a well put together
collection of oldies by the likes of Presley, Perkins, Berry
and Vincent. It features Pink Floyd’s David Gilmore on guitar.
David Bowie recaptures the 70’s sound that made him famous in
his latest release Hours. This is an interesting album and
better than some of David’s offerings.
Natalie Merchant will release a double live cd featuring a
cover of Bowie’s Space Oddity, and dig this Major Tom, a cover
of Neil Young’s as well.
The Doors box set The Complete Studio Recordings is also due
around mid October. It will also feature a essential rarities
bonus cd and all original studio recordings have been
Lou Reed will tour later in the year to support his upcoming
Ecstasy cd which features an 18 minute song. The album is lush
and melodic and differs from Reed’s under produced offerings.
Crosby Stills Nash & Young’s cd should be in the stores this
week but due to Graham Nash’s boating accident in which he broke
both legs, the tour has been postponed until this winter.
Three Dog Night is rumored to be releasing an album as well.
No word yet as to its material. Currently the band tours without
Chuck Negron who sang lead on many Classics like Joy To The
World, One, and Eli’s Coming.
Yet another WHO reunion takes place at Chicago’s House of Blues
to benefit Neil Young’s Bridge school charity. Currently
Pete Townsend has a recent live cd out.
Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page is set to perform onstage with The
Black Crowes with gigs in New York and Los Angeles. They plan
to cover Zeppelin classics and blues covers.
Bob Dylan and Greatful Dead’s Phil Lesh and friends are set
to do a limited tour this fall. The Buzz is that PHISH members
will make a guest appearance at some venues.
Chris Gains, The Artist Formerly Known As Garth, might have
a chance at one or two songs charting. But overall its a
disappointing effort. The song Maybe ,a rocking rap , might
be the strongest cut on the album. Brooks’ alter ego looks
like a chubby version of Prince but Garth claims the inspiration
for the character was Aerowsmith’s Steven Tyler.
Neil Diamond tours again with shows slated for December.
He remains a charismatic and stunning performer not to be missed.
Rock on Boomers!

SECTION SIX: LIFE STYLE
American Boomers to Inherit $10 Trillion
Contrary to prevailing stereotypes of broken down and
broke old geezers, today's senior Americans constitute the
richest, most politically powerful segment of the U.S.
population. In fact, these senior adults will leave their
children and grandchildren an astonishing inheritance of
$10 trillion in cash and assets. In his new book "Funny,
I Don't Feel Old" (ICS Press, 1997), author Carter Henderson
breaks through the stereotypes of our age-conscious society
to reveal a market segment that already has a discretionary
income equal to all other age groups combined. "Households
headed by people age 50 and older have close to $1 trillion
in annual income, control half the nation's discretionary
income, own three-quarters of all financial assets, and have
a net worth totaling a staggering $6 trillion-plus," says 72
year old Henderson. According to the author, the 50-plus
population represents a viable market.
median wealth of senior households is $90,000, compared to
$40,000 for all Americans.
40% of the nation's stocks and mutual funds are controlled
by the 65-plus population.
25% of the 65-plus population is self-employed, versus 10%
of all workers.
85-plus consumers are the fastest growing consumer group in
The author offers numerous illustrations of this new wave
of "OPALS" (Older People with Active Lifestyles) including
94 year old U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond (SC), 82 year old
barefoot water skier George "Banana" Blair, and 77 year
old astronaut John Glenn. "Funny, I Don't Feel Old" is in

billion miserable humans will suffer a difficult life
