---BOBBY DARLING VIDEO. NOT A TRUE STORY. Listening to that inner voice that is, often times, very wise. This is much different than hearing voices. I wonder where Bobby's inner voice, got that hat? KUDOS

---This is my latest Bobby Darling Duo video. The sound quality is not 100% correct. Or, even, 97%. Or, even, 91%. Bobby very graciously gave his approval to go ahead and leave it...but I hope the audio doesn't interfere with how good the song really is or your enjoyment of the video. After the 6th or 7th playing, I think you will be desensitized enough to have a good time. Maybe it will be 12 or 17. I'm just not sure. Let someone know. If you find that having a good time is impossible for you...maybe you should JUST re-think EVERYTHING.
---With the above disclaimer firmly in place - ENJOY (if you can)!

---Bobby Darling Duo - MrStrokeGuy Video
POODLES Jr.- Congratulates to the Bobby Darling Duo on the YouTube video, ''OLD CAPE COD.'' It is the first MrStrokeGuy video to have over 1000 views. There have since, been others. It may not be a lot on the large stage, but a milestone, nonetheless. Are we glad to see her? We'll find out. She seems to have a cause...and we know how potentially difficult they can be. NOTE TO SELF - ''One day at a time.''

PEOPLE!! PEOPLE!! Keep It CLEAN.
---This is my first video to make it over 1,000 views. It seems there are a few different Bobby Darling's around the world. I don't doubt that my Bobby Darling Duo videos were mixed in with the others. Neither of us, Bobby nor myself, speak the languages some of the videos are in. Congratulations to The ''Original'' Bobby Darling that I know and went to high school with. Good luck to the others, just on a matter of principle.
---We used to play on Cape Cod. Bobby used to live there. Cape Cod is the first place I saw The BDS play after I left the band. Little Ricky, (Don Gray), was on the drums. I thought they sounded very good. I think they started with the DOORs.

---DON'T ASSUME! I saw this when it originally aired in the 1970's. If you have never heard this, it is great. Many may know it, but that's okay. It is still very valid and easy on the memory
---For anyone with Attention Span difficulties...the end of the clip has the ASS-U-ME SCENE.

---It is nice to see that Bobby has found a hobby. Stamp collecting must be of bygone years. Mole Rats, clothed or not, are not known to rip out someones heart...as Bobby noted in his short rant.
---The Naked Mole Rat, a cold-blooded mammal, seems to need a friend. But, I will leave that to the experts. I will only say, ''Be Careful - Those Teeth LOOK Sharp.'' At first, I thought he said, ''Naked Mall Rats.'' Hmm! Makes me wonder if there are any NMR's, in my past?

---Street musicians that I had known and had seen many times. He played guitar, bass drum, high hat, blues harmonica and sang. She played the bass, which he taught her, and sang. I guess I should say SANG! You could hear them playing from blocks away.
---My friend, Cecil, just found the tape that I lent to him about 4 years ago. FYI, Cecil's story, picture and blues band is on my blog website called - AT THE HOSPITAL...http://consiterthisunwell.blogspot.com/. I highly recommend, after you, thoroughly, enjoy, ''KNUCKLEHEAD'' THEATER, first. Some songs of Cecil ''Jerry'' Whitmore's former band, are found below. They are great.
---I have Bruce and Julliette, here, because I know that Bobby Darling (SLEEPYTIME BLUES BAND, ''Empty Bottle of Blues,'') checks this website, periodically, and I wanted to be sure the tapes are available. I have a feeling that he will like them. The recording isn't great, but you can hear them, fine. I think that she is an incredible BLUES singer. ENJOY.

As I said, in the video, ''DIXIE HOLIDAY,'' I think that Bobby Darling may have been addicted to PONG, when it came out. He use to play a lot with Malibu Mal, at the LIMELIGHT in Springfield.
The game above is much better, and much FASTER.

When in doubt, place the video in ''KNUCKLEHEAD'' THEATER and ''ALTERNATIVE'' THEATER, simultaneously. That's what I always say.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY - Bobby Darling
Contained, within, appears a version of, ''The CHIPMUNKS.'' Groucho, Chico, Bud and Lou are, also, inside.

HUMPTY-DUMPTY SAYS HI -
---If you scroll down a few videos, you will get to ones that I made from the ''Original'' Bobby Darling tapes that my brother had found in my house some 27 years ago.
---I don't have any tapes of Dinsdale Darling, so this was back at the very beginning. You will also find some of our band before the BDS. It was called FRANCONIA NOTCH. The Band had nothing to do with the mountain in New Hampshire, except for its name.
---If you scroll far enough, you will see the video I made of Bobbys first protest song - the CLASSIC - ''OLD CAPE COD.'' You will find the Seals and Croft Classic, ''DUST ON MY SADDLE,'' also. Whenever you see ''BOBBY DARLING DUO,'' you will hear something of the EARLY BDS.
---I have never met Dr. DIVINE, but his musical talent far, far excedes any that I may have had. I'm very glad to see and hear Bobby playing with someone of his caliber.
---The ''EGGPLANT THAT ATE CHICAGO,'' ''DUMMY RESPECT,'' ''GREAT BIG WORLD,'' and of course, ''MILK-SHAKIN' MAMA,'' are some of my favorites. Also checkout, ''BOBBY-OGRAPHY, ETC.'' I write about the beginning times and being back in High School, with Bobby. As a matter-of-fact, it is good to see a picture of The DOCTOR, DINSDALE and BOBBY - still doing The CHIPMUNKS, after all these years. (Unless, I'm mistaken...and their faces are more filled-out than I thought.)
---One FINAL NOTE - Bobby is having a birthday, soon, and, I may be wrong about this, but I think he likes lots of presents. He is like a little kid. The ''more the better,'' was his motto, if I remember, correctly. I'm kidding about all that. Anything more than COMPUTER SCRABBLE, would embarass him. [I hope I got it right, Bobby.]
---ENJOY! Now that you know where I live, visit, again! Don't be shy! Don't be a stranger! I'll put the kettle on...next time! BYE and SAYONARA...for now!
The NEWSLETTER PICTURE IS NOW ON MY BLOG, ''BOBBY - OGRAPHY, ETC.'' IT CONTAINS THE STORY OF HOW THE MEGA-STAR CHIPMUNKS, BECAME INVOLVED WITH THE BDS. YOU BETTER READ THE STORY, BEFORE THE PULITZER PEOPLE GET THEIR ''PULITZER PAWS'' ON IT.

---Natalie Cole's people should get credit for the idea. Here is Frank Sinatra singing a posthumous duet with Celine Dion. You may like it.
---Why it's at ''KNUCKLEHEAD'' THEATER - I do not know...for sure.

A lot of people used to ask, who is Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks? Bobby Darling and I saw Dan Hicks and John, his guitar player, at Symphony Hall in Boston. He didn't have the ''Lickettes,'' that night. It was NOT Dans best performance, by far, but Bobby and I were big fans of his. The above clip is from the Flip Wilson Show.
Another Quick BDS Note - Bobby liked the instrumentation of Dan Hicks + His Hot Licks, particularly, the girl singers and the violin. Over the years, Bobby has had females in his band. Now...if he could only find someone, ACCOMPLISHED, on the fiddle.
See our ''RENDITION,'' below.
