My Apologies

OKC this Friday! Be there.


You'll have to forgive me for last week's post. This was a good bout of silliness on my part, and I don't want my regular readers to think that I've sunk so low as to demean other well-meaning artists by comparing them to cold, faceless corporate retail chains.

I'm talking about true rock 'n' roll originals who deserve better than some punk with a computer taking cheap shots at them.

Who the hell do I think I am, anyway?

I'm talking about the great singer-songwriters, the great bands of ours or any generation.

These are irreplaceable pop music icons. We'll never hear music that wonderful again.

John Austin

They sure don't make 'em like they used to.

Dead Hot Workshop

Too bad no one is writing great songs today.

Stephen Ashbrook

Or making great records.

(The first two are out. The last one is in stores 6/17.)

So, no more clowning,

Until next week.

thanks for the highly entertaining bloggin' and for pluggin' my music!
are we observing the evolution of your art? you move away from words and use more and more icons?
you speak the language of the NOW.

Oh, I didn't realize Dead Hot Workshop was a band. I thought you guys were just saying you were pretending like you just spent all day working outside in the sun and were exhausted. Eh, either way works.
