"Nothing Ever Happens to People Like Us...

... Except we miss the bus" - The Buzzcocks

This historical marker is on my bike route and a few weeks back I stopped to take a gander.  That is two minutes of my life I will never get back.  Buck T. King (great name, by the way, should have started a country band) built a house here in the 1920's and it burned down somewhere between then and 1942 when ol' Buck sold out.  That's it, end of story.  A plaque marking Pete Shelley missing a bus in Manchester would have been way more exciting.

In fairness, it is not an official State of Texas Historical Marker, which usually commemorate something of mild significance.  This one was put up by the City of Westlake - there is probably one outside the Jonas Bros. house as well.

For some real fun:

Mighty stuff.  Killer bass line.  Do you think they listened to Iggy and the Stooges much?
Oh and Green Day should be sued for blatant thievery, plagiarism and for being obnoxious.
