"...Witnessing whiskey orders at a packed bar makes it pretty clear that in the almost 400 years since the beloved brown liquor landed on the official record, and despite countless variations to suit most palates, people choose their whiskey out of habit.

"...A few weeks ago when I was on vacation we re-ran some classic Dancing anecdotes dating from 1991-93. Among those bits was a reference to Junkyard-era Chris Gates, so imagine my surprise this week when I ran into the former Big Boy and was informed that not only was that Southern Rock band's first album re-released a couple of years ago (where this week's Dancing art comes from), it's reportedly expected to reach gold status any day now! Admittedly, the disc has its moments, and in fact, any Texas rock radio station worth its salt should be playing the band's power ballad "Simple Man" at least as often as they regale us with "Free Bird." Furthermore, evidence that Internet traders are desperately seeking rare Junkyard material led Gates to ink a deal last year to release a live album from the band's peak days on Cleopatra Records..."
