One of the first and best-known results of Keith's country education is the smash-hit single Honky Tonk Women.

An unparalleled piece of musical genius it might be, but it wouldn't be the same without Charlie's use of a cowbell in the drum intro.

Go on, listen to it now and imagine it without that cowbell.

Pretty amazing that a band can endure 50 years and still be relevant.  Who says Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll isn't good for ones soul.  Keep on Rocking Guys.

Hey, Canada is not a new country up here.
For about 145 years, we've been up here and we've had prime ministers.
If you can't even research that, can I  (or anyone) trust the integrity of your facts?

If you did do fact checking then, please don't insult your audience by calling our "PRIME MINISTER"  a " PRESIDENT", assuming they can't make the tiny mental leap in understanding that a prime minister is a leader of a country.
