Is Derailed For A New Lead Guitarist? Rumors have been flying that the band has been looking for a replacement for lead guitar player Roy. Other guitarist have been seen coming and going from the plush Derailed studio complex in recent days, Joe Walsh, Eddie VanHalen, Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana, just to name a few. "It's truer' says drummer Wayne, we were looking for someone to fill in for last weeks show at Bailey's (Guitar Roy injured his hand play "Guitar Hero") "but after going through dozens of potential players, we realized- no one had Roy's talent." "We were going to cancel the show, but Roy insisted that the show go on." "We are about the people, the fans" said Roy. So Roy agreed to use performance enhancing drugs, "just this once." It worked, the show was a great success. It wasn't until quite late in life that I discovered how easy it is to say "1 don "t know/" -- W.

Rescue Dip At a time when millions of Americans are drastically tightening their belts to survive the economic downturn, pleas for charitable donations are increasingly going unanswered. But for one group of lost souls, even the smallest donations can mean the difference between life and death. They're the animals -- domesticated dogs and cats, primarily -- that have been abandoned to the wilderness, left to their own devices in harsh conditions and unable to fend for themselves. And there's only one organization in the nation dedicated to finding those abandoned pets and nursing them back to health: D.E.L.T.A. Rescue (http://www.deltarescue.org), a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded by actor and animal activist Leo Grillo. The animals' stories are heartbreaking. Coquetta, a small black-and-white dog, gave birth in the desert of southern California, only to watch her entire litter die from exposure. Soon after, she was hit by a car and left for dead, her hip and leg shattered. D.E.L.T.A. Rescue found her and brought her to its 94-acre Supersanctuary, the largest no-kill, care-for-life sanctuary in the world. There, D.E.L.T.A. veterinarians performed emergency surgery in one of the sanctuary's two hospitals, and the staff provided the care and love Coquetta seemed never to have known. Today Coquetta is almost fully healed and, in spite of her trials, loves to be around people. For every Coquetta, however, there are countless other animals struggling to survive in deserts and forests in which they were never meant to live. Grillo and his organization have been rescuing and caring for such animals since he founded D.E.L.T.A. Rescue in 1979, and in the time since, D.E.L.T.A. Rescue has become a first-responder to disasters and massive rescue situations all over the country. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Grillo's organization partnered with Feed The Children to get truckloads of dog and cat food to the animals left behind by families fleeing the hurricane. Disaster response teams have also called on D.E.L.T.A. Rescue during Southern California's devastating wildfires. But with the nationwide proliferation of smaller animal rescue organizations, Americans are being bombarded with appeals for donations. For D.E.L.T.A. Rescue, that means fewer funds with which to rescue and care for dogs and cats found in the wild. "D.E.L.T.A. Rescue goes out to where animals are alone and suffering, with absolutely no one else to help them," Grillo explained. "If D.E.L.T.A. Rescue doesn't come for them, nobody will. That's what makes our organization different from virtually every other animal rescue organization out there. It's why our work -- and the continued donations of concerned citizens -- are so vitally necessary." To learn more about D.E.L.T.A. Rescue, or to make a tax- dedu~ztible donation to help the organization continue its work, visit http://www.deltarescue.org or write to D.E.L.T.A. Rescue, P;O. Box 9, Glendale, CA, 91209. Sports Gambling Can Be A Dangerous Game (NAPSA)-Whether it's the Super Bowl, the Olympics, the World Series or the collegiate basketball tournament known as "March Madness," the American public loves its sporting events. Unfortunately, this fascination with sports can also have what some describe as a dark side. For some, wagering on sporting events-either legally or illegally-can become a problem. Advocates say problem gambling can devastate thousands of individuals and families in many ways, such as extreme debt, lying, borrowing and/or stealing, agitation when not gambling, stress, aggression, broken relationships, depression and, in extreme cases, suicide. This year, "March Madness" coincides with National Problem Gambling Awareness Week, March 7-13, 2010. To publicize the dangers associated with problem gambling, two men who lost their sons to a gambling- related multiple homicide-Bill Swanson and Robert McGuigan- are telling their story to remind the nation that sports betting can turn deadly. McGuigan's son had become a bookie. Swanson's son was staying at McGuigan's apartment when Swanson was killed by a gambler who was laying in wait for his bookie-McGuigan's son-to return home. The young McGuigan was later murdered as well. The gambler charged with the murder eventually committed Problem gambling can devastate individuals and families in many ways, such as extreme debt, stress and broken relationships. suicide. "Problem gambling changes people. It takes them down an unhealthy road," says McGuigan, cautioning that gambling addiction can progress over time. "Gambling can be as addictive as any drug," Bill Swanson cautions. "Everyone in America needs to know." This marks the 8th Annual Problem Gambling Awareness Week campaign, a grassroots public awareness and outreach campaign. The goal of this campaign is to educate the general public and health care professionals about the warning signs of problem gambling and raise awareness about the help that is available both locally and nationally. The NCPG (National Council on Problem Gambling) is the national advocate for programs and services to assist problem gamblers and their families. For more information, visit www. npgaw.org.

Grand Canyon Sundown On Bailey's Stage Saturday Night Grand Canyon Sundown will be on stage at Bailey's BBQ and night club on Saturday March 27th for an evening of music starting at 8. There is a cover charge and you must be over 21. The following is excerpted from a profile by Mike Alvarez for the Troubadour, February 2010 edition. When one's musical muse comes calling, its irresistible siren song can lead an artist down many unexpected pathways. Some call it a soul-searching journey. Some call it an inevitable destiny. Whichever it turns out to be, if it's a true calling, the literal and metaphorical roads one takes lead to discoveries both profound and inspirational. Oftentimes the lessons are hard, but the corresponding pleasures can be exhilarating. Grand Canyon Sundown is the collaborative effort of two high school friends and the group of talented musicians whom they befriended along the way. Paul Cruz and Dave Farrell are these long-time friends who grew up in and around and Ramona area. Both are guitarists and bassists who write songs and sing. Farrell also doubles on the mandolin. Around 1996, they encountered a kindred spirit in singing multi- instrumentalist Jason Postelnek, a native of Florida. According to Cruz, "We had all kinds of bands. Jason and I once went traveli g around the country as a duo." Although having resided in a number of places, he points out that "Ramona is the common ground in which Jason, Dave, and I all played for years. Acoustic guitars, violins, mandolins, banjos, beers, and so many memories." Rounding out the lineup are keyboardist/vocalist Drew Danforth (lauded by Cruz as a "phenomenal musician and singer") and drummer David Wilkie, who recently assumed the throne previously occupied by the band's old friend Seamus Steele. Special guest musicians in the studio and on stage are pedal steel player Doug Meyer, Junior Torres on harmonica, and Kevin Kristy on sax. The band's name was inspired by the closing lyrics of the Bob Dylar) song "Last Thoughts on Woody Guthrie." A live Grand Canyon Sundown show can be many things, from intimate acoustic gigs to full band performances with guest musicians. According to Farrell, "Our arrangements are always subject to the size of our band on any given gig and to the way we feel about them at any given time." Cruz agrees, saying, "We do a lot of three-piece shows. Guitar, violin, and mandolin and three-part harmonies. We have fun, and the songs never have an end result. We always change them, depending on how we feel the night is going. We definitelyi have a jam band feel, but with a! solid core of each song." As a reminder to all that this is a rock band in addition to an: artistic endeavor, Farrell gleefully; relates the account of a night the Surf and Saddle in Solana; Beach, which he describes as "super hot and sweaty." Much, to his satisfaction, the female, contingent of the crowd "ended, up hooting and hollering, telling, me to take off my shirt....I ended up on the dance floor' with my bass,,shirtless. Loved' it. That's probably my most' rock star moment." Yet even acoustic shows can be a stage for colorful road stories. They fondly remember performing ini Julian with Sara Petite during: which time Jason and Dave had a conflict of ideas. Although the band continued to play as ifi nothing happened, they all laugh; when recalling the expression of disbelief on the lovely Ms. Petite's face. Yet Cruz is quick to point out that "Dave and Jason both can give each other a hard time, but they are close friends." Ultimately, Grand Canyon Sundown is all about writing and performing good music. Farrell playfully declares, "1 think we're just about ready to hit the big'. time. I think that we will be the biggest rock stars of all time!" When asked, Postelnek agreed that having a record deal and being able to tour would be great. Going a little deeper, however, he" feels that they are creating music,, not telling the world anything in particular, but for reasons' that are refreshingly contrary. ,,r think it's more something we're trying to tell ourselves or, more~ accurately, something we are( trying to receive ourselves." His, response to a tongue-in-cheek~ question about world domination is equally eloquent: "Of course,. world domination is more, important than anything else. the world domination business was left to the musicians, poets,' and songwriters, the human race would be evolving toward a creative leisure lifestyle fo: all people. Instead, we have what we have." Paul Cruz is characteristically thoughtful when asked about his ambitions for Grand Canyon Sundown, "You know, music has gotten me through so much in my life.! I would just like to give whatever' [i've received] back. Maybe= they want it, maybe they don't.' I don't need to be a rock star'. or anything. I would just like to leave something behind from my! life here." After pausing briefly,, he continues, "We just want to, play. My personal goal is to keep, writing and eventually have a, way of recording a good portion, of the songs. We are definitelyI a songwriting band when it all' comes down to it."
