Bread!!!! …… Music!

So, these are the people who created the genre now called “soft rock”. 

I don’t know, perhaps it’s apt that they called it “soft rock”.  It’s great easy listening!  But, if you listen close, there’s an edge to it.  I wish there was more music like they made. 

Sadly, the band broke up because of ….. well, some would say ‘jealousy and perceived slights’.  But, it broke up because there can only be one.  There were two singer/song writers of the group …. well, they all sang, and the others have probably written songs, as well, but, David Gates and Jimmy Griffin were the singer/song writers.  Gates’ songs got more play.  So, Griffin went out on his own.  Because he was a co-owner of Bread, it effectively ended “Bread”. 

Many may not remember this one, but, it charted #10 on Country’s Billboard a long time ago!  This is from Griffin et al, (the Remingtons) without Bread.

    Successful Bands hardly ever realize this is might be the best it’s going to be and the key to the vault of gold, I’ve seen it so often over the years as obscurity takes it’s toll of the after the breakup up of once mighty group.

    The soft rock bands like Bread, America, and others, were for generally restricted to radio listening for me, with my meager earnings reserved for albums from the harder rockers. But there was no denying good melody and song construction.

    I used to play the crap out of “The Best of Bread”, as I could woo women with my vocals back then. Always liked this cover…

    It is hard to say who was the genesis of “soft rock”, and these guys certainly were at great addition to the genre…

    And a real tour de force of softness…

    Arctic ice ‘grew by a third’ after cool summer in 2013

    The volume of Arctic sea ice increased by around a third after an unusually cool summer in 2013.

    Researchers say the growth continued in 2014 and more than compensated for losses recorded in the three previous years.

    it wasn’t Bush………

    • gator69 says:

      Yes it was!

      Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan (search), who was camped outside President Bush’s Texas ranch for the past few weeks, says Hurricane Katrina is all President Bush’s fault, insisting that the president is “[now] heading to Louisiana to see the devastation that his environmental policies and his killing policies have caused.”

      Sheehan is not the only one blaming President Bush for Hurricane Katrina. Germany’s environmental minister says, “neglected environmental policies” in the U.S. have led to global warming and catastrophic weather. Minister Jurgen Trittin insists, “The Bush government rejects international climate protection goals by insisting that imposing them would negatively impact the American economy. The American president is closing his eyes to the economic and human costs his land and the world economy are suffering under natural catastrophes like Katrina.”

    “Next the radio switched to the local hip hop station and began blaring Skee-lo at full volume.”
    It’s not funny at all…

    “All of this is possible only because Chrysler, like practically all carmakers, is doing its best to turn the modern automobile into a smartphone. Uconnect, an Internet-connected computer feature in hundreds of thousands of Fiat Chrysler cars, SUVs, and trucks, controls the vehicle’s entertainment and navigation, enables phone calls, and even offers a Wi-Fi hot spot. And thanks to one vulnerable element, which Miller and Valasek won’t identify until their Black Hat talk, Uconnect’s cellular connection also lets anyone who knows the car’s IP address gain access from anywhere in the country. “From an attacker’s perspective, it’s a super nice vulnerability,” Miller says.”

      I don’t know why people haven’t figured out that just because we can doesn’t mean we should.

      • Lars P. says:

        Hm, to me the problem is why this stupid architecture?
        The entertainment part can be and should be completely separated from the active controls & the active controls do not need any wi-fi.
        A very simple, thought through architecture could avoid any possibility of remote hacking.

      • suyts says:

        The active controls are the reason why we can now use it for entertainment. On Star started this madness …… locked your keys in the car? No prob …. we’ll unlock your doors. Want a remote start? No prob …. The entertainment was an after-thought.

    • DirkH says:

      Only possibility – if the story is true – is that they broke into the motor control via the entertainment system using a buffer overflow with a malformed CAN telegram. In that case, I see heads rolling at the supplier who supplied the motor control. If GM is one percent as vicious as VW.

      • DirkH says:

        … automotive industry is mostly EE engineers, few CS degrees. Also, every Indian graduate they can get. Somebody forgot to test the motor controls susceptibility using phuzzing…

        • DirkH says:

          “automotive industry is mostly EE engineers” – concerning the car electronics of course. The car itself, Mech engineers obviously.

        • Lars P. says:

          Well, yes.
          This opens a whole can of worms…
