    This is actually several months ago. Wasn't going to make this one public anywhere. My mic is pretty low; kinda can't hear me (which is probably a good thing, lol), plus there's some other flaws.

    Then I got to thinking; Fuck it, life is short and getting shorter. Who cares, post your shit, lol.

    Check out the tone this dude had long ago



    Buddy Guy is 82... He was amazing when saw him a few years back. He climbed up to the balcony level and then climbed the table top beside me to solo like a madman leaning over the edge... it was awesome!

    Unfortunately minds have been poisoned...likely by the same factions that used to burn rock n roll records in the fifties. Now they tell you you're "too old"

    Tetsu Yamauchi refused to do a Faces reunion because he believes playing rock n roll at his age in undignified. You know what that means? It means he was a fckn poseur when he was young .....because my ol' pal Bo Diddley rocked right up til the end ....as did Link Wray. The REAL cats did it until they couldn't physically do it anymore

    Either you mean it ,or you don't .
    If there was a way out I might take it, not because Im too old ....because showbiz is depressing and mostly unfulfilling . But it looks like I get just enough crumbs to ride it out
    I'll be 56 in March. I MEAN IT as much at this age as I did at 15 ....only I can play n sing it better !

    You know who's too old? Those people you went to high school with who grew up to BE their parents. :lol:

    I absolutely love my parents, actually they were pretty hip for 60s-70s parents . They've seen a lot ,lived through some tough times ....but I didn't wanna grow up to be them, Im a rocker !
    KEEP ROCKIN ! (in the free world)
