A tribute to The Baron

800px-Angel_in_the_air_Bad News Beat pays tribute to its administrator:  “The Baron.” (Rainer B.)

You will always be on this page and in our hearts.

Rainer gave us all a commercial-free, private venue for almost 20 years on Bad News Beat and Human Highway so Zumans could travel freely and share their love of Neil Young – and their lives –  with each other.

I cannot write more now. Your loss is profound, beyond measure.


Across the plain flew the lone grey rider

Leather bag pounding on his back

Above the clouds the moon was climbing higher

A pack of wolves wanted their money back
With folded arms the chief stood watching

Painted braves slipped down the hill

In his ears the spirit talking

As they closed in For an easy kill
At the house the door was wide open

Wind blew curtains off the rod

She was waiting and hoping

She was praying to her god
He was luckier than most men

He was barely in his prime

As she stood their in the doorway Her long dress flowing

Would he make it this time
Over the hill in the big green country

That’s the place where the cancer cowboy rides

Pure as the driven snow before it got him

Sometimes I feel like he’s all right
Sometimes I feel like a piece of paper

Sometimes I feel like my own name

Sometimes I feel different later

Sometimes I feel I feel just the same

    RIP Baron

    Come, as you are, as you were, as I want you to be
    As a friend, as a friend, as an old enemy
    Take your time, hurry up, the choice is yours, don’t be late
    Take a rest, as a friend, as an old

    Come, doused in mud, soaked in bleach, as I want you to be
    As a trend, as a friend, as an old

    And I swear that I, don’t have a gun
    No, I don’t have a gun
    No, I don’t have a gun

    Memory (No, I don’t have a gun)

    And I swear that I, don’t have a gun
    No I, don’t have a gun
    No I, don’t have a gun
    No I, don’t have a gun
    No I, don’t have a gun

Greendale, on its surface, is the story of a family torn apart by a murder in a small town. It\\\'s a fable thinly veiling a more cautionary tale about tabloid exposure and the public\\\'s appetite for lurid details.
