That was wild to say the least!
I was hoping to hear some of the Johnny Carson interview.
Strange as it may seem, I never have heard of Jeff Healey before now.
Thanks for the "enlightenment" Yuri!

I will have to think about it some more...lol. It's more difficult than I thought.

I will stick with my Elvis is to America as Gordon Lightfoot is to Canada.
As far as Elvis, {THE KING OF ROCK & ROLL} for me, I think he's pretty difficult to compare. But hey Anne, that's just me !

Hmmm...I should have thought of Barbra Streisand in comparison to Celine. In truth, I can't stand Barbra...lol.
I know, it's unamerican to not like her but I can't help it.

I have to agree with Jesse Joe about Jeff Healey. The man was in a class by himself and I can't think of anyone that comes close to him.
Yuri, that was an amazing clip. Thanks for putting that up...loved it

RM...what do you mean you have a headache...lol. This was your idea

I think we should twist it even more, my friend. How about complete opposites?

Barry Manilow is to America what Leonard Cohen is to Canada

That should make a few people cringe
