Holiday Cheer and a Pop Culture Challenge

I don't have much by way of holiday gifts to offer you, but I can at least share one from Eugene Edwards (in the red shirt). I'm a big fan of his and John Hoskinson, second from left. Anyway, go to Gene's website and download his free Christmas single. You'll love it. Also go to John's website and listen to his song of the day. If you love great music like I do, you'll want both John and Eugene's albums. One other thing I'm listening to this holiday season is Christmas Card from a Hooker by Tom Waits, courtesy of Michael K. It's all good.

One million kissy points to anyone who can identify the gentleman at the far right, playing bass, in the photo above (you can click the picture for a larger version of it). In his childhood, he was a pop culture icon. It's okay if you don't know his real name, as long as you can identify him by how everyone knows him and loves him. He's grown up to be a kick-ass musician, but you know him from the television character he played. Good luck, and enjoy Eugene's song.

LA, I saw a special on washed up child stars on VH1 not to long ago. But trust me if I had not seen that show I would have never guessed it was him.
