you know it.

I wouldn't call myself a fan, but he's quite a crooner. Pretty cute too.

He was the musical guest when I saw a taping of Conan. He was pretty good too. I like mostly all of his songs except that one about wanting to fall in love.

I like one remark he made. When asked what he thought about Bwuce Spwingsteen he said, without yodeling:
"I think they should kill him slowly."

I guess none of you have ever heard Roy Orbison.

Chris has been riding his surfboard on nothing but his good looks for quite a few years.

Yeah, he looks all metal, but I don't think he is "true".

Roy had two sons who died tragically in a fire at his home (I believe in Hendersonville?). Then he sold the place to Johnny Cash. Years later Roy's surviving son used to go by the site of the old house which June and Johnny had turned into a garden as a spiritual gesture. Johnny kept seeing Roy's son up there so one day he went over and gave him back the land. Pretty cool.

Silvertone was good bachelor pad music for setting the mood. Women really respond to meloncholy crooning drenched in reverb. James Calvin Willsey is a good guitarist in his own right.

Indeed. He was in the Avengers, too.

Used to go see Chris at Nightbreak, a biker bar on Haight, circa '85. It's amazing how fully formed his act was even then.

I also ran into him at a Jerry Lee Lewis show that year and gave him an invitation to our party a few nights later, but he didn't show. Rats.

chris isaak

Posted: Oct 31, 2008 3:24 am
that's right

That guitar guy is pretty good. Kind of a psychedelic James Burton. But he never came up with the kinda genius guitar lines like Roy Orbison. Roy wrote Pretty Woman in the back of a bus on tour with The Beatles. Also, Roy was great from beginning to end. Even that last record he did was great. And The Travelling Wilburys. And you can't beat Ooby Dooby. He died way too young.
Plus Roy had great style.

my friend from high school had some pretty cool parents that would take us down to New Orleans and turn us loose. On the way down they would rock some Van Morrison (the good stuff, mostly up through St. Dominic's Pre), Delbert McClinton (not good. specifically his "everytimeirollthedice" tune from like '92 or whatever) , and Chris Isaak - Forever Blue. I can't say i liked it, but it wasn't nearly as bad as one would think. But my god , certainly not better than Bruce's first 2 or 3 records.

Even that last record he did was great.

And The Travelling Wilburys.

what always got me about him was the sadness: the lost wife early on; TWO sons dying

really hard to believe how a guy could stand up after that

i lived in san fran for a couple of years in early 90's. isaak was always around. a pretty decent guy. but what everyone talked about--when he left the room, natch--was his milton berle(esque ?) schlong. it was a running joke. chris was a-packin'. enough for two white men..

His schlong was a running joke?
That fuckin figures.
Posted: Nov 1, 2008 8:59 am
i met him a few times in SF - pretty funny dude - saw him a couple of times at the Paradise Lounge - wasnt into it -- unlike Baker i never lied awake at night thinking about dude's schlong, nor was it a topic of discussion at the social gatherings i attended

ps. Nightbreak was a crucial joint
Posted: Nov 1, 2008 10:08 am

Very, VERY British, Crucial.

unlike Baker i never lied awake at night thinking
