In the world of rock music, there are some frontmen who are so strongly associated with the band, it’s impossible to envision the band existing without him. You couldn’t have the Rolling Stones without Mick Jagger; Steven Tyler is the face of Aerosmith; and for years, Freddie Mercury was the performing heart, soul, and voice of Queen. When Mercury met his untimely demise in 1991, it was a foregone conclusion that Queen was over. Through the years, there have been occasional attempts at reviving the band. George Michael’s 1992 performance at the Freddie Mercury tribute concert led many to think that he might step in; then the 2005-2006 tour of Queen + Paul Rodgers seemed like it might pave the way for future studio albums, but that ultimately fizzled out. It wasn’t until Adam Lambert captivated America in Season 8 of “American Idol” that Queen found what they were looking for, not as a replacement for their irreplaceable frontman, but a new voice to bring 30 years of Queen music to new audiences.

As any poker player can tell you, there are few things more satisfying than having a pair of pocket aces. While it’s not a guaranteed win, you wouldn’t trade those cards for anything, and you can be fairly confident that you’ll be happy with the end result.

There’s a cancer growing in the game of blackjack, namely, those abominable blackjack games that only pay 6:5 for a blackjack. If players don’t do something about it, 6:5 payoff games may become the new blackjack standard. However, you can help get rid of this game once and for all, and I’ll show you how in a moment. Historically a blackjack hand has always paid 3:2. That means if you bet $10, you will be paid $15 (a 3:2 payoff). (This assumes, of course, that the dealer doesn’t have a blackjack on the same hand.) When a casino decides to pay only 6:5 for a player blackjack, it increases the house edge by almost 1.4 percent (no, that’s not a typo).

There’s always a certain amount of skepticism one has when an entertainer announces his or her retirement. Certain groups and individuals have been on their “Final World Tour!” for 20 years running, and such announcements are often seen as marketing ploys designed to fill seats. So while it was disheartening to hear that performing legend Kenny Rogers was getting ready to retire, and embarking on his final tour, “The Gambler’s Last Deal”, it was refreshing to hear that unlike so many others in show business, he really meant it.
He has certainly made the most of his amazing career.
