AUGUST 1-- More bridges were washed out in California between Essex and Amboy because of July storms.
AUGUST 2-- Joliet is lukewarm to planned Route 66 The Road to Rock Museum. This planned museum pays homage to to Illinois musicians. Some of the Illinois artists to be presented are REO Speedwagon, Cheap Trick, Biddy Guy, Smashing Pumpkins, Kanye West (well), King's X (never heard of them), Blues Brothers, Tom Morello.
Well, if this museum comes to be, I hope they will also feature our great 1960s bands like New Colony Six, the Flock, Cryan' Shames, Buckinghams and Shadows of Knight. Also all the Blues artists that made their name in Chicago like John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters.
