Cut me a FREEEKIN' Break!

How the F********************CK did this guy ascend from hopeless, homeless addict dude to national cultural icon of everyday violence?? He accomplished more in his broadcasting career/ 15 minutes of fame than I in 30+ years in this biz!! I was told I'm too F***CKN' "normal" AND I'm pissed off about that, yes! BUT hey..I can swim!

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Just a few months ago, Rodney King was once again the center of attention as the world checked back in on the man whose videotaped beating by police sparked one of the nation's worst race riots.
King had left Los Angeles behind, moving an hour east to a home where neighbors would often hear him splashing in the pool late at night.
The physical and emotional scars from the more than 50 baton blows remained, but King struck an upbeat note on his life.
"America's been good to me after I paid the price and stayed alive through it all," he told The Associated Press. "This part of my life is the easy part now."
But King was found around 5:30 a.m. Sunday at the bottom of the swimming pool at his Rialto, Calif. Home.
His death at age 47 is being treated as an apparent drowning and there are no signs of foul play, but Capt. Randy De Anda said autopsy results would be needed to determine whether drugs or alcohol were a factor.
The autopsy is set for Monday.

ZZ TOP: I Gotsta Get PAID!

This new track is from TEXICALI, a four song EP of original songs available today June 5, 2012. DOWNLOAD it NOW and hear the GREAT signature guitar and vocal growl of these Texas legends!
Here are three guys, three regular guys, who have navigated the turbulent waters of the music business for over four decades. Quality musicians who have written and recorded through waves of public fickleness in sound from the Blues based free-form 1970's, to the synthesized Big Hair-long legged ladies of the 1980's to full circle amped up shitkicking Lonestar state RoCK that we grew up on! NOTHING better than solid players returning to their roots AND proving that you are never to OLD to Rock N Roll. Thanks Billy, Dusty and Frank for coming back to the party with this tasty 4-Song preview of the full album release to come!  Hear it on South Jersey's 25 year ROCK STATION 100.7 ZXL and.. Long live Jeremiah Weed...
