The best concert I’ve seen live was the Prince concert I saw this past October. Truly amazing as is Paisley Park. That got me to thinking what others may have thought was the best concert they’ve seen. Sorry for such a short post, but I really only wanted your input on live concerts.

George Washington Carver was born in 1864 near Diamond Grove, Missouri. George Washington Carver decline an invitation to work for a salary of more than $100,000 a year which in today’s terms would have been more than one million dollars. Carver discovered three hundred uses for peanuts and hundreds more uses for soybeans, pecans and sweet potatoes.
Among the listed items that he suggested to southern farmers to help them economically were his recipes and improvements to/for: adhesives, axle grease, bleach, buttermilk, chili sauce, fuel briquettes, ink, instant coffee, linoleum, mayonnaise, meat tenderizer, metal polish, paper, plastic, pavement, shaving cream, shoe polish, synthetic rubber, talcum powder and wood stain. Even so, Carver only applied for three patents, believing his work was a gift from God to be freely given to mankind.

I know Sony is going to put together an album or two of the songs Michael recorded but they never made it onto an album. Perhaps Motown will do the same thing if they can find any.
If a tribute album is put together or already in the works, the guy in this video should be included. No questions asked. His name is Sam Tsui and he is all seven of the guys in this video. Check it out on YouTube if you haven’t already seen it.
In my infinite wisdom [insert smile here] this is the playlist that I came up as well as the artists I believe should sing the songs. If you can think of any additional or you have your own ideas, comment.
