Rick Rubin is responsible for countless evolutions in music over the last 30 years. From founding Def Jam to working with the Beastie Boys, to reviving Johnny Cash’s career, to being brought in to save ‘Yeezus’ last minute. He is behind hundreds and hundreds of beloved records. Yet somehow, even after absorbing the entire history, it’s still difficult to explain the legacy of a man who doesn’t appear to do much while doing everything at the same time.

Leah received a request for an Elvis song. This is her guitarist Bruce Kimmell performing “Blue Suede Shoes”.
Will qualify this a “Nashville Rehearsal” performance is why I included what I did at the beginning because I could hear her listening to it on her phone. With in mind, this is Lynagh performing an acoustic version of AC/DC’s “Back In Black”.
Lynagh performing (and yes I will go ahead and use their original name) Lady Antebellum’s “American Honey”.

I used to be a highly compensated IT consultant.
I rarely got my hands dirty…
I was like a professional Athletic free agent, I would have bidding wars for my services…
I left all of that behind to become an uncompensated long haul trucker, that handles hazardous waste on a regular basis (sewage)…
What was I thinking?
I love my wife…
We are staying in hotels on our way back west.
I was down getting some ‘free’ breakfast (it’s not free, it’s included)…
I was getting @The_CINC some oatmeal, for myself, just coffee in which to pour some Irish Cream.
A lady walks up to me and says;
“I bet you own that motorcycle in the parking lot covered up!”
“You’d lose, I own the one on the trailer behind the little black truck.” I replied
“I didn’t see that one.” She responded
“You might want to see an optometrist, Ray Charles could see it….
He’s blind and dead…”
