Human beings should be taught from a young age that friendship is about going to the movies, concerts, restaurants, parties, being there for someone when they need to talk and someone to turn to when you need to talk and going to each others funerals and weddings, etc. Maybe even writing songs and making music together.
The moment money becomes involved you have to realize and accept that this part of your life has nothing to do with friendship and you should treat your friend and anyone else involved like you never met them before and assume you can not trust them.
Everything is discussed, everything is agreed on, everything is in writing, everything in writing is reviewed by your own lawyer and you hire your own accountant to audit all business. Then, and its only a maybe, you might still have a business and a friendship.
Think about how more valuable a class in "friendship and business" would be to most people in high school or college than calculus.
But I sympathize with this man, I learned these lessons several times in my life myself. It gets very, very expensive, wish they had had a class, calculus never made me any money.
Huge fan David J's work, and especially looking forward to The Hot Place. The album they kickstarted a year or two ago was phenomenal.
I've had this on repeat for the past ten days straight. This is for anyone lamenting the vapid state of modern hip-pop but doesn't feel like forcing themselves to choke down the current "underground" cred boosters just to appear cool to the hipsters. It's simply perfect rap music, in every way.
Louis, what's your plan if Adam shows up? Y'all fighting?
if you have anything to say to me adam come say it to my face but then again we all know that little cry babies always cry like the little babies that they always rep
Can't wait to see #Bully perform here January 31st...Definitely helping with their rock image, this band is unreal. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfFUV2Xe7z8iFLXYqsV2rZw
Thanks for the catch, Russell. It's fixed now.
It's escape route 23 lol
"moved her in '09 after 16 years in LA and 17 in Miami, both 'international' cities, and this is by far the most integrated"

@carl r white - THIS IS WHY I LOVE ATLANTA - moved her in '09 after 16 years in LA and 17 in Miami, both 'international' cities, and this is by far the most integrated, accepting and friendly city full of unexpected alliances and friendships I have ever encountered - proud to be a transplanted ATLien
Yea Huh?, and I know the post is 3 years late but I do not remember any rec yard when I was there.
You look at the pictures and I know what many of you are thinking but you can not always judge the book by its cover, believe it or not, the local chapter of Black Lives Matter has started meeting at SoCo every Monday night.
I like southern comfort alot I'm glad it reopened but very disappointed they didn't keep the band with Dana singing that was the main reason I came
Seeing at least one show in the Music Room at Smith's Olde Bar should be on everyone's bucket list.
Yea, really, a legend like this only charging $40-45. Guess he felt sorry for the poor people as he is obviously worth so much more.
Great story - I love this place and glad to see such a nice tribute!!

A wonderfully truthful article About Atlantas last great Honky Tonk. Memories I will always hold dear, both good & bad. My prayers for their continued existance continue for the community. I Love that place & the opportunities and experiences it provided. Even the lessons learned. Although my path has changed I wish them the very best!
