QUACK ADDICT"In 1979, ravaged by cocaine and alcohol, George Jones experienced some difficulty onstage at a Nashville club. The wobbly country star could open his mouth, but he was unable to sing. 'My friend Deedoodle [a duck] is going to take over this show, because Deedoodle can do what George Jones can't,' the singer improvised. Jones sang the entire set in a Donald Duck-inspired quack."

(CNN) -- To Lolis Eric Elie, author of the cultural barbecue travelogue "Smokestack Lightning" (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), there is no better barbecue pork shoulder sandwich than one made by barbecue pit-master J.C. Hardaway, honored this year by the SFA with the "Keeper of the Flame" award.
When asked why pork shoulders, Hardaway, who started cooking when he was 14, smiles in a way that conveys that he has forgotten more about barbecue than the questioner will ever know, and says, "It just the best."
Smoky Hale, a symposium participant and author of "The Great American Barbecue and Grilling Manual" (Abacus Publishing Company), says pork shoulder is one of the finest cuts a barbecue chef can use.
"The pork (shoulder) butt is to pork cookers what the beef brisket is to a Texan. Both cuts have layers of fat interspersed within the meat. When cooked low and slow, the fat melts while basting the meat to keep it moist until it gets done," explains Hale.

"This clip is a well deserved show-off for the swedish genius entertainer and performer/composer Povel Ramel. And the tune, of course, is his first big hit, "Johanssons boogie-woogie vals" (The boogie-woogie waltz of Mr. Johansson) from 1944. The lyrics are in swedish, but it is all about a guy who suddenly hears a foreign boogie-woogie record (from the US) and then writes his own tune, a mixture of a traditional swedish waltz and a boogie woogie :-) ..."

La Dolce MustoScreen Legend Throws Shit Fit at Musto!by Michael MustoMarch 17th, 2003But back to big orchids, a producer just played me a copy of an '89 recording he found by Robert Blake's murdered wife Bonny Lee Bakley, who gave very good treacle. The record turns out to be just the kind of poignantly kitschy celeb-worship collectible you'd expect from the woman who owned a photo of her face superimposed next to Elvis Presley's. The rap tune—"A Tribute to Elvis"—has a cheesy sounding synth and drum machine backing Bakley's effusive utterances like "Some people say it's hard for them to understand/I want to be in heaven's rockin' band/Bill Haley and Buddy Holly too/We sing our song for all of you." Sadly, she made it to the band before her time.
In 1989 she made two records for Noway Usa Music of Palisades Park, New Jersey:
Using the name Lee bonny Bakley, she recorded a number called "Tribute to Elvis Presley" that contained the line "Rock and roll will never be the same/Rock and Roll Leebonnie is my name". She also made a brief appearance in the 1985 movie "Turk 182" which starred Robert Urich.In 1990 Lee Bonny and Linda Gail Lewis sued a UK newspaper that had reported they were running an expensive sex chat line service.
Bonny's Address Book
Bonny Bakley's resourcefulness was apparent in her address book, which Harland Braun recently made public with the addresses, and sometimes telephone numbers, blacked out.
"Let me show you something," Braun said as he flipped through its pages for reporters. "It's really disgustingThis lady was completely wacko. She was absolutely evil."The book contains 17 entries, and includes addresses for:
Sugar Ray Leonard
comedian Chuck McCann
Jerry Lee Lewis
actor James Best

A note written by Bonny LeeBonny's resourcefulness, not to mention her persistence, as a celebriphiliac is also evident in the aggressive manner in which she pursued a relationship with Jerry Lee Lewis for years."She was all over us," recalled J.W. Whitten, Lewis's former road manager. "She would always stay in the same hotels we were in. She popped up at one of his birthday parties. Once she offered me money to tell her where he was. She actually thought she had a shot at being Jerry's girlfriend."
Bonny Lee Bakley says"Jerry lee Lewis is the Daddy of my little girl"

original Star article from 1993:
ANGRY GIRLFRIEND BLASTS -
JERRY LEE IS DADDY OF MY LITTLE GIRL
A scorned girlfriend of Jerry Lee Lewis says he's the father of their love child - and now she's taking the legendary rocker to court. Bonny Lee Bakley wants the legendary rocker to acknowledge and support the 4-week-o1d daughter she's named Jeri Lee. Lewis, 57, his sixth wife, Kerrie, and their son, Lee, are currently living in Ireland to avoid high taxes in the U.S. But that hasn't stopped Bakley, 37, from filing a petition in Memphis to establish paternity. "I took a home pregnancy test. I called Jerry and told him I was pregnant. He didn't really seem enthused," Bonny tells Star.
"He told me, 'Don't tell anybody.' He didn't want me to tell his sister, Linda Gail, even though we were friends. He said he would get back to me but he never did. I thought he was on the verge of a break up with Kerrie," she says, adding that she gave birth just a few minutes' drive away from The Killer's mansion. Now an unemployed mother of three, Bakley says she had, an on-again, off-again affair with the Great Balls of Fire singer for seven years, and adds she always believed she'd be the next Mrs. Jerry Lee right up until the time the child was conceived. 'The last time we made love was on October29, 1982, at the Airport Marriot in Nashville" Bonny recalls. "I wore a blue silk dress. Jerry said, 'you look good tonight. After we made love, he said, 'I got to get up early' and he left."
Now that Bonny has resigned herself to to life as a single mom, she is determined to make Jerry pay up. "I knew that I had to do something to see that the baby had her rights," says Bonny. "So I went to the Memphis juvenile court and told them I was having a baby - but the father isn't responding." Bonny says the paternity tests can't be done for another two months - but she has no doubt the results will prove that the child is Jerry Lee's. "I would marry him in a heartbeat" sighs Bonny "I love Jerry I love him so much I was willing to have his child. I would do it all again."
She says she fell for the aging performer after seeing him on stage for the first time. 'Jerry made a lasting impression on me," says Bonny "I met him backstage while I was living in New Jersey. "I came to Memphis for a visit" recalls Bonny, 'and ended up staying for a month, and seeing him almost every night usually at Hernando's Hideaway - one of Jerry's favorite clubs, "In 1986, I even moved down to Memphis so I could be with Jerry"
Even if she does win her suit Bonny may have a rough time collecting any money. Jerry Lee owes the IRS $1.6 million, and recently, agents seized some of his most prized possessions - including his piano. "Jerry flatly denies he is the father of this child," the singer's attorney, Charles Waldman, tells STAR.
"I hate the word has-been," continued Merich, "but common sense tells you that the B-list people have more of a problem (with celebriphiles). They don't have handlers and can't afford top-notch security. And they tend to visit the same places over and over again, because people know them there and they still get the attention they crave. They leave themselves open to this problemyou have to get into the psyche of the celebrity. Because as much as they complain about it, these people like being famous. They like walking down the street and having people say, 'Oh, my gosh, that's so-and-so.' That's why they became a celebrity in the first place. And your B-list people aren't getting that attention anymore. So they're much more susceptible to groupies or hangers-on or somebody like this Bakley woman."
"I've been in this business for ten years, and these sorts of cases have been a constant," said John C. Lane, Jr. Lane, formerly the lead officer in an LAPD celebrity protection unit, is now employed by Omega Threat Management Group. "There has always been an undercurrent of inappropriate pursuit in the entertainment industry. Usually it gets dealt with behind the scenes."

In 1980, still married to her cousin, Bonnie moved down south. One day she arrived, uninvited at Jerry Lee's boyhood home. Frankie Jean Lewis, the rocker's sister, says Bonny sashayed into her living room with a tape recorder playing striptease music.
"She takes off her blouse and peels down her stockings," says Frankie. "It was good. She said 'I'd like to meet your brother.' So I got Jerry on the phone and I said 'Jerry, we got us a real live one here.' And he said 'Send her up.' That's what he always said."
