Boston police officers recently decided to do their very own parody of late night talk show host James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” ahead of the Fourth of July holiday.

Two officers in particular, Stephen McNulty and Kim Tavares, filmed a video singing their own rendition of “God Bless America” and they did such a good job the video is now going viral.

God bless our men and women in uniform, putting their lives on the line to protect our communities on a daily basis.

McNulty and Tavares are heard bantering back-and-forth about the festivities, and at one point McNulty says “God Bless America” by Irving Berlin is one of his favorite songs, according to Boston.com.

“We should do a duet sometime,” McNulty tells Tavares.

“Everybody always says that, ‘When are you and Stevie going to sing together?’” Tavares replied. “Let’s try it.”

“Happy to see two of our officers, Kim Tavares and Stephen McNulty, getting in the mood for all the upcoming 4th of July festivities planned for the Boston area and surrounding communities. Please feel free to sing along with them as they make their way through our city,” said a Boston police statement on its website.

The video, which was shared on the department’s Facebook page, received more than 2,000 shares and 96,000 views.

Now if this doesn’t make you swell with pride in your country, what will?

In a day and age when it’s “cool” to hate on America, it’s refreshing to see two wonderful human beings enjoying themselves, their freedom, and their jobs, truly living the American dream.

We should all take a moment to remember how good we have it here in the United States and give a prayer of thanks to God for the freedom we take advantage of each and every day.

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Legendary Guitarist Set to Boycott Venues Requiring Vaccine Proof

WOW!

With nearly half of Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has hit a wall.  The folks who are left unvaccinated are, by and large, abstaining by their own decision.  They don’t want a vaccine, and they don’t believe that the federal government has any right to tell them otherwise. But some private companies have begun suggesting that they may institute new regulations that would require customers or users to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to interact with them.  This could include some convert venues requiring that ticket holders can prove their vaccine status before seeing their favorite musical acts once they hit the road again. Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton isn’t into it.  At all. Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus. The musician and outspoken vaccine skeptic issued a statement that was highly critical of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and other live performance venues in light of increasing coronavirus cases. The “Wonderful Tonight” singer issued a statement on the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, a known COVID-19 vaccination skeptic as well. In it, he issued a direct response to Johnson’s announcement and called the situation for those who do not wish to get the vaccine discriminatory. “Slow hand” got right to the point. “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel…
