John William Minton (February 19, 1948 – March 20, 1995) was an American professional wrestler and actor, better known by his ring name, Big John Studd. Studd is best known for his appearances with the World Wide Wrestling Federation/World Wrestling Federation in the 1970s and 1980s.
Going Back is the eighth solo studio album by English drummer blue-eyed soulster Phil Collins. It was released on 13 September 2010 in the United Kingdom and 28 September 2010 in the United States, and features covers of '60s Motown and Soul standards. It also was his first full solo release in eight years, Collins having primarily concentrated on soundtracks, compilations, and his extensive touring as a solo artist and with Genesis. It is also the second album to be solely produced by Collins.
Minton was once more famous than Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud. Now his superfan is on a mission to resurrect his reputation in this fascinating BBC Four documentary. Listening to a recording of Minton – crackly and clipped – is, for Gatiss, like reaching back into the past and holding his hand. Which, given a Tardis, is surely what he would do. In Corsica, there pretty much is a Tardis. Or at least a monochrome bus, which Gatiss is suddenly riding through the hills in 1947. In his haunting, waif-like self-portraits, Gatiss detects something else going on, a familiar longing, a sort of ache. In a deeply repressive age, Minton’s sexual awakening came about in the wartime blackout with sailors down by the docks. He became an early champion of gay rights, splendidly taking on Marie Stopes on the letters page of the Listener in 1950, 17 years before the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales.
Early in the Civil War, Union President Abraham Lincoln also stressed on the importance of capturing the city stating, Vicksburg is the key to end the war. View of Vicksburg, Mississippi, 1855. Before trying to siege Vicksburg, Grant cut of its supplies by capturing the City of Jackson
Looking Back is the seventh album released by John Mayall in August 1969 by Decca Records. The album features songs by both John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and John Mayall solo work. The album reached No. 79 on the Billboard 200. Confusingly, there are two different albums with the title "Looking Back": a Decca UK release as a single album (SKL 5010) and a Decca Germany (issued by TELDEC) release as a double album (DS 3104/1-2). Later issues on CD would use the Deram label.
John Minton was at the heart of this short-lived movement, which by the late 1950s had faded away, when interest shifted to abstraction. Like many of his neo-romantic contemporaries, Minton was both a painter and an illustrator, although, unlike Keith Vaughan, John Craxton and Michael Ayrton, for example, his paintings are only now beginning to receive formal recognition. In his succinct list, Minton summarises the depth of knowledge that he brought to his illustration work and his understanding of the importance of equal empathy for the practical, aesthetic and literary.
