GET BOXED!

June 9th is date when Mick Box, Cheshire-cat grinner of URIAH HEEP, was born. With due congratulations to this one hell of DME’s friend, it should be said that the best present Mick received this year is a website of his own: http://www.mick-box.com. Lovely thing is exactly what this lovely guitarist deserves – there’s a lot to be added but what is on now looks great and exactly reflects Mick’s nature. Drop by, that is, and drop Mr Box a line.

THERE BE BEARS

“The Country Bears” is a title of the newest Disney film that’s based loosely on the Disney attraction Country Bear Jamboree. The movie will be premiered on July 26th but the soundtrack is due to hit the shelves three days earlier and feature some great singers. Alongside Willie Nelson and John Hiatt there’ll be such mighty animals as Don Henley, who performs a duet with Bonnie Raitt on “Can Love Stand The Test.” and Elton John doing “Friends.”
