Billy Strange dies at 81; guitarist, arranger for Presley, Nancy Sinatra - Los Angeles Times

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
L.A. studio musicians later dubbed "The Wrecking Crew" because they took work away from the veteran studio pros of the time. William Everett Strange was born Sept. 29, 1930, in Long Beach and early on established a musical identity with his own work. He recorded at Capitol Records in Hollywood in the early '50s, playing country and boogie-woogie flavored numbers such as "Diesel Smoke, Dangerous Curves" and "The Crazy Quilt Rag." In 1962 an instrumental that Strange wrote, and which had been recorded by the Champs of "Tequila" fame, became a huge hit for "The Twist" singer Chubby Checker after songwriter Kal Mann added lyrics to Strange's music, allowing Checker to extend his dominance in the dance-craze genre. "Limbo Rock" exploited the early-'60s fascination in the U.S. with the limbo, and Strange's song gave limbo parties an anthem to be built around. Strange held no illusions about the long-term artistic merit of the pulsing number, which he described as "just about the dumbest thing I've ever heard." With his all-around skills as a songwriter, arranger and player, Strange was soon in high demand in recording studios, adding to sessions with Ricky Nelson, the Everlys and Spector, the latter connection segueing into work with Spector disciple Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, for whom he played on their high-watermark album "Pet Sounds" in 1966. Those credits helped bring him to the attention of Presley, whose career as a recording artist faltered in the 1960s as he focused on formulaic Hollywood movies set up for him by his manager, Col. Tom Parker. After that first meeting, Presley and Strange became close friends. "Elvis used to call me up around 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. and say, 'Hey Billy, let's go for a ride,' " Strange recalled in 2002, when "A Little Less Conversation," a song that he and Mac Davis had written for Presley 33 years earlier, suddenly was a hit again thanks to an electronic dance remix by Amsterdam DJ Junkie XL. "I lost a dear friend when Elvis died. I couldn't bring myself to go to the funeral of one who expired so needlessly and tragically." Strange's path intersected with that of another 20th century pop music titan when he and songwriter-producer Lee Hazlewood were auditioning songs with Nancy Sinatra for her debut album. "Lee and Billy came over and Lee was picking some things on the guitar, and I said, 'I like the one about the boots,' " Nancy told Larry King in 2002. "My dad, when he was leaving, he said, 'You're right. It's the one about the boots.' A hit song is a hit song. The only other time I felt that feeling was with 'Somethin' Stupid,' and it als...

Kudos to Alabama coach Anthony Grant - ESPN

Fri, Feb 17, 2012
The postgame meal there was a perfect finish to a good weekend. Five things I think I know [+] Enlarge Eric Francis/Getty Images Doug McDermott and Creighton host Long Beach State in a critical BracketBusters game on Saturday. 1. The best BracketBusters game might not be the one everyone is talking about. While all eyes are on Murray, Ky., this weekend when the Racers host Saint Mary's, perhaps the most critical buster game will be played in Omaha. That's where Creighton hosts Long Beach State. The Bluejays got a much-needed win on Tuesday night, beating Southern Illinois to halt a three-game skid. But with wins against San Diego State, Tulsa and Wichita State to hang its hat on, Creighton could use another good victory. The 49e...

Montgomery fights on after cancer scare - FOXSports.com

Wed, Nov 16, 2011
He opened up a little more, so that helps us relate to him more.” Cancer is no stranger to Montgomery. His parents — father Jack was Long Beach State’s first athletic director and played football at UCLA with Jackie Robinson — died of the disease. And Mike's wife, Sarah, was diagnosed with breast cancer in the late ‘90s. (She is fine now, he said.) But Montgomery shakes his head at the suggestion those experiences have somehow prepared him to cope with his circumstances. “I don’t know about that,” Montgomery said. “It’s pretty personal when it’s you.” 1 North Carolina (62) 1620 2 Kentucky 1501 3 Ohio State (1) 1482 4 Connecticut (2) 1433 5 Syracuse 1338 td align...
