I care!

Hey, I was at that John Cougar show at Castle Farms! Only I was really fucked up...I blacked out just before Heart took the stage. Then I was suddenly at the airport bar.

Good times...

When fast food chains, truck makers or collect calling services use your old hits for an ad. When your cd's start selling in gas stations for $5. When your music is included in any 'Best Of 80's Hits' cd's. When Best Buy is stuck with about 11 million unsold head-bobbers with your band's likeness. I...

Well, now that I've had a chance to listen to 'Live Wide Open' I'm pretty geeked about seeing him live. He isn't quite God with a guitar, maybe more like Sartre with a guitar (and a sense of humor). But he's great - no question there. Well worth the listen!

Dwight 1, suits 0. So he went back west and started playing in pu...

Very interesting site by ol' Robyn. Lots of odd, unsettling stuff. I might seriously make an offer for one of his paintings! http://www.robynhitchcock.com/ And really, everybody do yourselves a favor and see 'Storefront Hitchcock' on DVD - it's one of the best pop/rock films ever made. His surrealis...
