Who is Linden Hudson?

CLASSICBANDS DOT COM said: “According to former roadie David Blayney in his book SHARP DRESSED MEN: sound engineer Linden Hudson co-wrote much of the material on the ZZ Top ELIMINATOR album.” (end quote)

(ZZ Top never opted to give Linden credit, which would have been THE decent thing to do. It would have helped Linden’s career as well. The band and management worked ruthlessly to take FULL credit for the hugely successful album which Linden had spent a good deal of time working on. Linden works daily to tell this story. Also, the band did not opt to pay Linden, they worked to keep all the money and they treated Linden like dirt. It was abuse. Linden launched a limited lawsuit, brought about using his limited resources which brought limited results and took years. No one should treat the co-writer of their most successful album like this. It’s just deeply fucked up.)

LICKLIBRARY DOT COM (2013 Billy Gibbons interview) ZZ TOP’S BILLY GIBBONS FINALLY ADMITTED: “the Eliminator sessions in 1983 were guided largely by another one of our associates, Linden Hudson, a gifted engineer, during the development of those compositions.” (end quote) (Gibbons admits this after 30 years, but offers Linden no apology or reparations for lack of credit/royalties)
+++
MUSICRADAR DOT COM (2013 interview with ZZ Top’s guitarist Billy Gibbons broke 30 years of silence about Linden Hudson introducing synthesizers into ZZ Top’s sound.) Gibbons said: “This was a really interesting turning point. We had befriended somebody who would become an influential associate, a guy named Linden Hudson. He was a gifted songwriter and had production skills that were leading the pack at times. He brought some elements to the forefront that helped reshape what ZZ Top were doing, starting in the studio and eventually to the live stage. Linden had no fear and was eager to experiment in ways that would frighten most bands. But we followed suit, and the synthesizers started to show up on record.” (once again, there was no apology from ZZ Top or Billy Gibbons after this revelation).
+++
TEXAS MONTHLY MAGAZINE (Dec 1996, By Joe Nick Patoski): "Linden Hudson floated the notion that the ideal dance music had 124 beats per minute; then he and Gibbons conceived, wrote, and recorded what amounted to a rough draft of an album before the band had set foot inside Ardent Studios."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP (By David Blayney) : "Probably the most dramatic development in ZZ Top recording approaches came about as Eliminator was constructed. What had gone on before evolutionary; this change was revolutionary. ZZ Top got what amounted to a new bandsman (Linden) for the album, unknown to the world at large and at first even to Dusty and Frank."
+++
CNET DOT COM: (question posed to ZZ Top): Sound engineer Linden Hudson was described as a high-tech music teacher on your highly successful "Eliminator" album. How much did the band experiment with electronic instruments prior to that album?
+++
THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE, MARCH 2018: "Eliminator" had a tremendous impact on us and the people who listen to us," says ZZ Top’s bass player. Common band lore points to production engineer Linden Hudson suggesting that 120 beats per minute was the perfect rock tempo, or "the people’s tempo" as it came to be known.
+++
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP by David Blayney: (page 227): "…the song LEGS Linden Hudson introduced the pumping synthesizer effect."
+++
(Search Linden Hudson in the various ZZ Top Wikipedia pages which are related to the ELIMINATOR album and you will find bits about Linden. Also the main ZZ Top Wikipedia page mentions Linden. He’s mentioned in at least 7 ZZ Top related Wikipedia pages.)
+++
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP By David Blayney: "Linden found himself in the position of being Billy’s (Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top guitarist) closest collaborator on Eliminator. In fact, he wound up spending more time on the album than anybody except Billy. While the two of them spent day after day in the studio, they were mostly alone with the equipment and the ideas."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: BEER DRINKERS & HELL RAISERS: A ZZ TOP GUIDE (By Neil Daniels, released 2014): "Hudson reportedly had a significant role to play during the planning stages of the release (ELIMINATOR)."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE (ROLLING STONE PRESS, WRITTEN BY DEBORAH FROST): "Linden was always doing computer studies. It was something that fascinated him, like studio technology. He thought he might understand the components of popular songs better if he fed certain data into his computer. It might help him understand what hits (song releases) of any given period share. He first found out about speed; all the songs he studied deviated no more than one beat from 120 beats per minute. Billy immediately started to write some songs with 120 beats per minute. Linden helped out with a couple, like UNDER PRESSURE and SHARP DRESSED MAN. Someone had to help Billy out. Dusty and Frank didn’t even like to rehearse much. Their studio absence wasn’t really a problem though. The bass and drum parts were easily played with a synthesizer or Linn drum machine." (end quote)
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "After his quantitative revelations, Linden informally but instantly became ZZ Top’s rehearsal hall theoretician, producer, and engineer." (end quote)
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE" (ROLLING STONE PRESS, BY DEBORAH FROST): "With the release of their ninth album, ELIMINATOR, in 1983, these hairy, unlikely rock heroes had become a pop phenomenon. This had something to do with the discoveries of a young preproduction engineer (Linden Hudson) whose contributions, like those of many associated with the band over the years, were never acknowledged."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: ​SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP (By DAVID BLAYNEY) : "The integral position Linden occupied in the process of building El​iminator was demonstrated eloquently in the case of song Under Pressure. Billy and Linden, the studio wizards, did the whole song all in one afternoon without either the bass player or drummer even knowing it had been written and recorded on a demo tape. Linden synthesized the bass and drums and helped write the lyrics; Billy did the guitars and vocals."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "TRES HOMBRES – THE STORY OF ZZ TOP" BY DAVID SINCLAIR (Writer for the Times Of London): "Linden Hudson, the engineer/producer who lived at Beard’s house (ZZ’s drummer) had drawn their attention to the possibilities of the new recording technology and specifically to the charms of the straight drumming pattern, as used on a programmed drum machine. On ELIMINATOR ZZ Top unveiled a simple new musical combination that cracked open a vast worldwide market.
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESS MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "ELIMINATOR went on to become a multi-platinum album, just as Linden had predicted when he and Billy were setting up the 124-beat tempos and arranging all the material. Rolling Stone eventually picked the album as number 39 out of the top 100 of the 80’s. Linden Hudson in a fair world shoud have had his name all over ELIMINATOR and gotten the just compensation he deserved. Instead he got ostracized."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: ​SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP by DAVID BLAYNEY: "He (Linden) went back with the boys to 1970 when he was working as a radio disc jocky aliased Jack Smack. He was emcee for a show ZZ did around that time, and even sang an encore tune with the band, perhaps the only person ever to have that honor." (side note: this was ZZ Top’s very first show).
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "Linden remained at Frank’s (ZZ Top drummer) place as ZZ’s live-in engineer throughout the whole period of ELIMINATOR rehearsals, and was like one of the family… as he (Linden) worked at the controls day after day, watching the album (ELIMINATOR) take shape, his hopes for a big step forward in his production career undoubtably soared. ELIMINATOR marked the first time that ZZ Top was able to rehearse an entire album with the recording studio gadgetry that Billy so loved. With Linden Hudson around all the time, it also was the first time the band could write, rehearse, and record with someone who knew the men and the machines. ZZ Top was free to go musically crazy, but also musically crazy like a fox. Linden made that possible too."
+++
FROM THE BOOK "ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE" (ROLLING STONE PRESS, BY DEBORAH FROST, WRITER FOR ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE): "… SHARP DRESSED MAN which employed Hudson’s 120 beat-per-minute theory. The feel, the enthusiasm, the snappy beat and crisp clean sound propelled ELIMINATOR into the ears and hearts of 5 million people who previously could have cared less about the boogie band of RIO GRANDE MUD."
+++
THE GREATEST ROCK REBRAND OF ALL TIME (by Jason Miller): "Sound engineer Linden Hudson researched the tempos at which the most popular rock tracks in the charts had been recorded. His data showed that there was something very special about 120 beats to a minute. Gibbons decided to record pretty much the whole of ZZ Top’s new album at that tempo. The result? 1983’s Eliminator. It was named after Gibbons’ Ford Coupé; it had been created through a unique combination of creative collaboration and data mining. And it was about to take the world by storm."
+++
ULTIMATECLASSICROCK DOT COM: "This new melding of styles was encouraged by Hudson, who served as a kind of pre-producer for ​EL LOCO … … Hudson helped construct ZZ Top drummer Frank Beard’s home studio, and had lived with him for a time. That led to these initial sessions, and then a closer collaboration on 1983’s ​ELIMINATOR.
+++
FIREDOGLAKE DOT COM: "I like Billy Gibbons’ guitar tone quite a lot, but I lost all respect for them after reading how badly they fucked over Linden Hudson (the guy who was the brains behind their move to include synthesizers and co-wrote most of their career-defining Eliminator record)."
+++
EMAIL FROM A ZZ TOP FAN TO LINDEN (One Of Many): "I write you today about broken hearts, one is mine and one is for you. I have been a ZZ Top fan since I was 6 years old. I purchased ELIMINATOR vinyl from Caldors in Connecticut with the $20 my grandma gave me for my birthday. I will spare the #1 fan epic saga of tee shirts, harassing Noreen at the fan club via phone weekly for years, over 40 shows attended. Posters, non stop conversation about the time I have spent idolizing this band, but more Billy G, as he has seemed to break free of the Lone Wolf shackles and it became more clear this was his baby. In baseball I was Don Mattingly’s #1 fan, Hershel Walker in football, Billy Gibbons in music. What do these individuals have in common? They were role models. Not a DUI, not a spousal abuse, not a drug overdose, not a cheater. Until I read your web page. I read Blayney’s book around 1992 or so, I was in middle school and I was familiar with your name for a long time. I didn’t realize you suffered so greatly or that your involvement was so significant. It pains me to learn my idol not only cheated but did something so wrong to another being. I now know this is where tall tales and fun loving bullshit and poor morals and ethics are distinguished and where I would no longer consider myself to look up to Billy. I love to joke and I love credit but I have always prided myself on ethics and principles… I hold them dear. I wanted to say, the snippet of UNDER PRESSURE you played sounded very new wave and I may like it more than the finished product. Well that’s all. You have reached ZZ Top’s biggest fan and I can let others know. Bummer. Cheers and good luck. James."​
+++
VINYLSTYLUS DOT COM: Much of Eliminator was recorded at 124bpm, the tempo that considered perfect for dance music by the band’s associate Linden Hudson. An aspiring songwriter, former DJ and – at the time – drummer Frank Beard’s house-sitter, Hudson’s involvement in the recording of the album would come back to haunt them. Despite assisting Gibbons with the pre-production and developing of the material that would end up on both El Loco and Eliminator, his contribution wasn’t credited when either record was released.
+++
INFOMORY DOT COM: ‘Eliminator’ is a studio album of the American rock band ZZ Top. It was released on March 23, 1983 and topped the charts worldwide. Its lyrics were co-written by the band’s sound engineer Linden Hudson while the band denied it.

We are an hours flight outside of Shanghai (and another hour’s drive — of terror — beyond that). Still there is a haze that hangs over the city and won’t go away. I’m not sneezing as much, I think this is dust more than pollution.

Finding my way around a Chinese computer is interesting, I have to guess everything based on position!

From time to time a field needs to have lime applied to it to keep the soil fertile. This is the machine used to apply (dust) the field. The driver really only has to steer and reload since the application is computer controled and depends on the "speed over ground" to set the rate of application.

Rural Norfolk is not Ideal for Adult Dating But its Urban Areas Are Better

Rural Norfolk is not Ideal for Adult Dating But its Urban Areas Are Better

Norfolk is very large and mainly rural county. This gives it a low population density which inevitably prevents it being a good county for adult dating. In fact there are only four hundred people per square mile living in Norfolk. To make a county ripe for adult dating activity, a density of at least twice that is normally necessary.  The county does however have three substantial urban areas where population is more than high enough to provide sufficient contacts and parties. These are Norwich, Great Yarmouth and Kings Lynn. Over a quarter of million people live in Norwich whilst Great Yarmouth has a population of over seventy thousand and Kings Lynn has over forty thousand.
Norwich has much to offer anyone dating or looking for party fun. Its  Arts Centre is a popular and first class live music venue. It has an excellent concert hall and a theatre too. Norwich’s thriving music scene also offers many smaller venues where live music to suit practically every taste is staged. The University of Anglia which is located in Norwich and it helps to keep the culture of the city vibrant and conducive to those who want to enjoy some adult fun.
The much smaller city of King’s Lynn also has a good variety of night life culture.  Whatever your musical tastes or club scene King’s Lynn will prove to be a good place to help you a party underway and provide you with many good meeting places.
Sadly neither Norwich nor Kings Lynn have any regular, commercially operated adult party venues or swingers clubs. Great Yarmouth on the other hand does. This popular seaside resort on East Anglia’s north coast is however not the best of locations for such a venture and the club is constantly in danger of being forced to close down because of lack of support.
The much smaller market town of Dereham is an unlikely place to expect to find a swinger party venue and yet one has existed in a nearby village for many years.  Doubling up as a naturist spa, the venue offers a seven seater Jacuzzi and sauna plus comfortable rooms, warm hosting and a free bar. Guests often stay-over on a bed and breakfast basis and the venue can also be booked for private meetings. The nearby naturist beach of Holkham offers pleasant summertime relaxation following a party.
As well as this and within the main urban areas of Norfolk adult dating meetings and swinger parties occur mainly in the homes of private individuals. It is possible to gain access to these by joining an adult dating club or online swingers site, like Club Aphrodite, where members notify each other of such activities and send invitations via the site’s internal messaging facility. My advice to anyone serious about adult dating in Norfolk is to join such a club or site and put some serious effort into getting recognised as a member to whom others send their private invitations.

The authors are a liberated couple who promote uninhibited, liberated sexuality through articles about adult dating and swinger parties. Their swinger dating websites include Club Aphrodite which is one of the oldest adult dating and swinger parties clubs in the uk, having been founded in 1996

Rural Poverty Versus Urban Slums – No Quick Fix and One Size Fits None

Rural Poverty Versus Urban Slums – No Quick Fix and One Size Fits None

Everyone knows there are problems in the world, and when looking at the Third World on the African Continent, well it becomes very obvious very fast the rural lifestyles are quite harsh, and it also causes folks to move towards the city creating massive slums, and deplorable conditions and more and more come forward. Not long ago, a thinker on these topics noted; “If the rural areas produced more and paid more, people wouldn’t be so inclined to go to the city.”

Yes, he is absolutely right on the money. There is a bit of a problem with money flows towards the big cities, but not making it back to the rural areas to pay them to farm and such, it’s always has been. It’s due to the synergies that are created there in the cities, where people migrate to live a better life; if you can imagine an urban slum as a better life.

And whereas many world-thinkers and NGOs, even academic researchers feel that it is easier to “feed people” in the urban environment due to economies of scale, which is logical, just due to logistics, the over bombardment of “refugee” like migrations to the urban slums is not working. It’s a huge issue indeed.

Part of the problem, and something I noted this in the Franchising Industry when opening new markets is solutions to these problems are not a one size fits all. Each region, city, town, county, state, and nation has its own characteristics. When dealing with urban slums or rural poor areas in the world, it’s the same thing.

Look at the urban slums in Bombay, Nairobi, Bangkok; all different, and the rural challenges in the Congo, Honduras, Bolivia, Thailand, Burma, also all different. Too many World Thinkers and HGO heads of committees go to Cancun for a Conference for the UN to talk about solutions using money from First World Gifts and come up with solutions they present at Davos, which are just never going to work.

Worse, is so many of these folks mean well, and fight like hell to do it their way (the infighting and fiefdoms are intense), and the solutions they put forth are literally forcing these schemes onto the people of some far off land; amazingly arrogant actually? But, all in all, I do understand their reasoning, I just wish sometimes they might look closer at the resultant.

“The road to hell is always paved with the greatest of intentions” as they say.

Composting in Urban, Suburban, And Rural Households

Composting in Urban, Suburban, And Rural Households

Composting bins are designed to make the job of household composting easier. Composting is a terrific way to reduce your household’s waste, and it also makes soils more fertile, improves plant health and gardening yields, and even helps wildlife indirectly by keeping soil healthy. Composting is a natural process, and it happens to anything that used to be a living organism, as long as the right amounts of moisture and oxygen are present. Other, less flattering terms for the process include decomposition and biodegradation. Composting is helped along by organisms like fungi, bacteria, worms, and insects.

Composting your qualifying household waste is really easy, and plastic compost bins make the job very convenient. Your work basically amounts to throwing kitchen and garden waste into the composter and rotating it regularly. The resulting compost, or humus, enriches soils and can prevent the need for non-organic fertilizers. The key to getting good humus is using a variety of types of waste, and ensuring adequate moisture and air. Rotating the compost, either by digging in the compost bin with a spade, or by using rotating compost bins helps the process along by adding air and separating out compacted layers.

While most of the composting activity takes place at whatever the ambient temperature is, if you have a big enough composter with enough material in it, the microbial activity will really get going, raising the temperature in the core of the compost to around 160 degrees Fahrenheit! This is hot enough to kill off harmful germs as well as weed seeds you don’t want to use on your garden.

The more shredded the waste material is, the faster it will compost, because more exposed surface area of waste products allows the decomposition to work faster. The end result of composting is a dark brown substance that has a texture somewhere between that of sawdust and rich soil.

One thing you will notice if you regularly compost household waste is that much of the waste simply disappears. One reason for this is that a lot of kitchen waste has a high water content, and the water either drains off or evaporates. Also, the decomposition process releases some gases which dissipate into the air. Approximately 10 lbs. of kitchen waste are necessary to yield 1 lb. of compost.

But don’t think that if you have a small household that it’s “not worth it” to bother composting. For one thing, you can get very small compost tumblers, and even though you may only get 1 lb. of compost for 10 lbs. of waste, you’re still keeping 10 lbs. of kitchen waste out of the sanitation system. Plus, that 1 lb. of compost can make the difference between anemic houseplants and a lush indoor garden.

You can find compost bins for sale at hardware and home improvement stores, but the largest selection can be found online. It doesn’t matter if you grow your own food and have a large household, or if you have a household of one or two and live in an apartment. There is a compost bin that’s just the right size for your needs that will help you create amazing, free organic fertilizer and keep plenty of household out of the municipal waste stream.

Choosing Your New Home – Urban Sanctuaries Vs Rural Retreats

Choosing Your New Home – Urban Sanctuaries Vs Rural Retreats
When choosing your new home, it can be difficult to decide whether to opt for an urban hideaway or a rural retreat. There are in fact many advantages and disadvantages for each location, so to help enlighten you, here are a few of the pros and cons.

Urban Living
Living in a town or a city usually means that you will never find yourself at a loss for things to do. With many places to go, including cinemas, restaurants, shopping centres, museums and bars, urban living provides you with a number of locations to visit. Employment is also easier to come by, with more companies residing in urban areas. Towns also offer more schools for children; often not just restricted to primary schools, towns will offer secondary schools and sometimes universities as well. Urban living also usually results in fewer travel costs. Most locations are close enough to walk to, or catch a bus to, therefore saving money on petrol and vehicle maintenance.

However, towns can be very over crowded, with large volumes of people around at all times. This usually results in higher levels of criminal activity, and often means safety measures have to be increased. The higher numbers of inhabitants in urban areas also causes transport issues, with traffic jams being a common occurrence. Cities also have increased levels of noise and pollution, which can be detrimental to health in the long term.

Countryside Homes
Living in the countryside offers a peace and quiet which cannot be found in the city; with less traffic allowing you to enjoy the sounds of nature. The country also offers large open spaces, resulting in the ability to have a larger house and garden without being on top of your neighbours. Countryside living also offers a sense of community, along with less crime and an increased feeling of safety. Living in rural areas also tends to have lower levels of pollution, less smog and cleaner air, providing many health benefits.

However, living in the countryside often results in problems finding employment, as local offices can be few and far between. This in turn can result in larger travel expenses, as driving to work or taking the children to school may result in longer journeys. Hospitals and other important amenities are also often a greater distance away. Living rurally can also result in problems with changes in the weather. Thin and winding country lanes can be difficult, and sometimes impossible to manoeuvre in heavy snow and rain.

Whether you enjoy the hustle bustle and ease of city living, or the slower paced, quiet life of the rural areas, both can be perfect places for you to find a house and make it your home.
