The Cicadas Are Here!

  • https://www.chicagotribune.com/2024/05/17/2024-cicada-emergence-chicago-illinois/
  • They’re loud, but they’re harmless. And some people even like to eat them.
  • Cicadas are beginning to emerge from the ground around Chicagoland and Illinois. Two broods will converge on the state in a historic emergence. They belong to Brood XIX, four species that appear every 13 years in the Southeast, and Brood XIII, three species that appear every 17 years in northern Illinois.
  • It will be the first time in 221 years that these two specific broods come above ground at the same time and in such proximity. The last time this happened was in 1803 when Thomas Jefferson was president, and Illinois had yet to become a state.

Reception and Charts:

  • https://www.glennhughes.com/discography.html
    • “Recorded in Tokyo in the Summer Of 1994. A brilliant concert, my band played incredibly, the audience was fantastic. I felt my Creator present while singing Still In Love With You on this live recording. It was one of those nights that was like a dream. The crowd gave me tremendous energy. My fans are my songs, they are my lifeblood. Turn this one up really loud!”
  • Message from Glenn Hughes:
  • Here’s the most relevant part of the latest message from Glenn, from 21. December 1994:
  • To all Deep Purple Fans
  • I would like to thank all of you, who purchased the Mark III and Mark IV albums which I performed on.
  • I am currently writing and in production for my next studio album to be released in the early summer of 95. My live album (currently on import) Burning in Japan [sic] will be out in the New Year. Six Purple songs are performed here to great satisfactory performances.
  • You must remember that Purple asked me to join to add a new dimension to the sound, which I did. I have the greatest respect for Ian and Roger. But David and myself are different writers, performers and singers. I wish all the Purple family the very best, and to you all Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!
  • Glenn Hughes
