We Still Got It!!

This project is turning out better than I could have hoped for! Rehearsal on August 19th was great!
Tony says he hardly plays his bass---sure---smooth and solid as ever. Adding the Wease on drums was a brilliant idea-he was always one of my faves. Tony and Wease(Tony G) work like "Peanut butter and Jelly"! This combo gives me the opportunity to front the band and concentrate on the vocals. When the rythm section is good--"All is right with the world"!

What can I say about Bob B. (well there's alot but I don't have the time) That talented Mother-f----r can't do anything wrong!!! It sounds good now-I can't wait to hear this blend once Richard joins in. Don't you just love when a plan all comes together!!! Until next rehearsal------767!!!!!!

You may be too old for late night gigs in clubs when...

  • It becomes more important to find a place on stage for your fan than your amp.
  • Your gig clothes make you look like George Burns out for a round of golf or Dolly Parton with flat bosoms.
  • All your fans leave by 9:30 p.m.
  • All you want from groupies is a foot massage, a back rub, and an Ovaltine, YIKES !
  • You love taking the elevator because you can sing along with most of your set-list.
  • Instead of a fifth member, your band wants to spring for a really strong backed roadie.
  • You lost the directions to the gig.
  • You need your glasses just to see the amp settings.
  • You've thrown out your back or blown out yer knees jumping off the stage.
  • The waitress is your daughter!
  • You stop mid-set because your last Viagra fell behind the speakers.
  • Most of your crowd just sways slowly in their seats or nods off.
  • You find your drink tokens from last month's gig in your guitar case.
  • You refuse to play without earplugs.
  • You ask the club owner if you can start at 8:30 instead of 9:30.
  • You check the TV schedule before booking a gig.
  • You're related to at least one member in the band.
  • You don't let ANYONE sit in.
  • You need a nap, BEFORE the gig.
  • After the third set, you bug the club owner to let you quit early.
  • You don't recover until Tuesday afternoon.
  • You buy amps considering their dead weight and not their tone or "cool" factor.
  • Feeling guilty looking at hot women at the audience, 'cause they're younger than your daughter.
  • You can remember seven PREVIOUS different club names for the same location.
  • You have a hazy memory of the days when you could work 10 gigs in 7 days and could physically do it!.
  • Your date couldn't make it because she couldn't find a babysitter for the grand-kids.
  • The set list has to be in 36 point , BOLD Type..
  • It seems impossible to find stage shoes with decent arch support.

POLL: This is your Reunion Too ... you decide

  • Should we come back with big hair, GINORMOUS shoulder pads, leggings and parachute pants, as you probably still picture the 1984 "us"?
... and would you like a McDLT with that? You know, a 2 chamber delivery device that keeps the warm side warm and the cool side cool ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTSdUOC8Kac.
Call me crazy, but, in 1983, I predicted the McDonalds video guy would lose most of his hair, live with his parents until his 40s and get a high paying job in the latex industry http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bizJWtJ0xXo&NR=1 working for Vandelay Industries ... I'm just sayin'

Pictures from THEN

Richard Parks After reviewing PKB pics, I now feel even older than I thought I felt. Coupled with being up at 3:16 am ("honing my insomnia skills" as a wise man once said) I'm trying to decide if I should:
a) play guitar for awhile or
b) finish filling out my aarp application...

Rock & F'n Roll!
