    2016-50 years old-playing garage Rock-like I mean it---because I do.

    I picked up the ELECTRIC guitar in my early teens. R+R was getting tired. I was going to see ZEP-then Bonzo died. I had tickets for Randy-he died. I sat in my suburban room beating on a 17lb Hondo 2 LP copy. I had a small Gorilla amp and a Rat Pedal-----

    That is a decent lyric;very Joe's Garage

    "Down in Tim's bedroom we didn't have a Fender or LSD---just a Hondo2 and a Rat pedal........

    I'll work on this >>>>>>>>>>>>>>....

    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    I plucked away. I got whiskers. I took lessons. I could not play Dust in the Wind. ELECTRIC guitar was very hard in the 80's. No video lessons. Mel Bay books and failed JAZZers teaching punks open chords. I decided to let the Hondo rest. Poetry was far easier,just let the pain out,no scales,no minor chords. I just sat on benches and composed Post-Beat odes. Philly was big on Poetry then?????I attended many a slam. I was "almost" awarded the POETRY belt...........then-kissy kissy came into play----

    "Hey.....ughhh.....Tim....we REALLY like your Poetry.....but.......you do not kiss our butts.......you must kiss kiss....then you get RICHES..............

    They gave THE STRAP to some dope who couldn't carry my quill. I got a piece of paper= To Tim-the second best young Poet in Philly..........
    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    By Bye Poetry-

    Hello R+R. 1991 ........I was old to be starting a band;26 was ANCIENT back then. I started a little band. We tried to play Zep+Sab covers. We stunk. Then the glow-worms-entered-my---------

    I wrote my own "visions." I put chords to my poetry. We slowly climbed the rankings-we got to 82 best band in Philly-------then 60--------17----------then....

    "Hey ummmm,,,,Tim.....we REALLY like your little ole band from Philly....but.....you must kissy kissy.....

    NO KISSY KISSY! Then bans......more bans.......then BYE BYE R+R!
    //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    2008-small comeback..................2011-smaller comeback----------2014 HUGE COME BACK! I created my own FEZZ belt.......the ony butt I had to kiss was my own.................Old FEZZ #5 is 2 years old. Just got the news.

    "Tim, this is Link Wray.........hey Tim Steve Gaines here------GOOD NEWS-----you are THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My friend, Big Possum ,called,
    "Tim, that was !@#$"
    " You really liked it?"
    "You are an A'hole. You actually despise your audience."
    "Sure do, they are morons,sitting there sheep-eyed drinking swill."
    " I can't believe they didn't shut you down."

    Big P was there in '93 when I got shut down every gig. Lights and PA would cut out and I would finish the song and pack up REAL slowly.

    "I wish they did. I never play a whole hour. The owner was a sour little man. He can eat my ear-wax."
    " You messed up every song."
    "It was dark ;I couldn't see my fret markers."
    "What a lame excuse."

    He lambasted me for 10 minutes.

    "Glad we delivered. "
    "Yes, your band is just as bad as it was in your prime."
    "Love you, hope you choke on some dry turkey."
    "Screw you Tim."

    CCCccccccccccccccllllllllliiiiiiiiiiiiicccccccckkkkkk

    People always hate THE CHAMP!
