 Clara Kimball Young
Mabel Normand later recalled James Young on the set in 1915, head in hands, saying "where I made my mistake was in ever inviting that fellow to the house." Selznick's wife had to endure the humiliation of escorting Clara to public events to squelch rumors, which apparently fooled no one.
James Young ceased directing her films after The Heart of Blue Ridge (1915), and in 1916 sued Selznick for alienation of affection.
Shortly thereafter Young announced plans to form her own company, stating that she was to be completely in charge of her career and of all artistic and business decisions.

 Johnny Jenkins - Music Downloads - Online
Bio: Guitarist, singer and songwriter Johnny Jenkins may have had a long pause between records, but his heart, ears and mind were always close to blues music.
Jenkins never wanted to be a professional musician, and always worked day jobs, including digging wells, logging and mechanic work.
Jenkins' style is at times reminiscent of Elmore James, and at other times, one can hear echoes of Jimi Hendrix in Jenkins' guitar playing -- probably because Jenkins was a seminal influence on Hendrix.

Today, while only two remain from the glory years, Singer/Guitarist Tommy Shaw and Guitarist James Young, the band has filled in the gaps admirably if even a bit awkwardly at first listen.
They've brought back veteran musician Glen Burtnik, last heard here doing some vocal harmonies on their 1990 "Edge of the Century" release, returning drummer Todd Sucherman, and keyboardist Lawrence Gowan.
