Phew, made it! I don't know about you, but it's been a long pull this week. I don't think I've had a day off in, well, months, and I'm tired. Hey, wait, don't walk away! I'll quit complaining, I promise. OK? We good? Great.
Here's a couple of songs that have been on my mind lately. I'm a huge Allman Brothers fan, and Whipping Post is just one great track. I'll let them complain rather than me!
I'm doing up a concert list to round up my buddies to see some shows, and the Jayhawks are coming to a venue very very close to Casa BRP. I'm white on rice with that show. I think the Jayhawks are great, and if you agree, you'll dig this great track:
I'm getting old and nostalgic. I remember being a freshman in high school when Boston's first album came out. My two older brothers were still in high school, too, and we drove to school together. I was always in the back seat. What kind of car? A Ford Maverick - pretty badass for high school kids, right? Yeah, well, whenever this song comes on, I'm a 15 year old kid in the back of that car again hanging out with my two older brothers. It's a pretty good memory even though I hated high school.
I have been bogged down by The Man lately, and I have felt abandoned - not just felt it, it's been true. I haven't had much time to rock. Which made me think of one of rock's great "comeback" songs: Led Zeppelin's Rock and Roll. I saw LZ on the infamous 1977 tour. It should have been one of the best concerts ever. It wasn't. But this song still is amazing.
One more? Yeah, ok, you greedy people, I've got one more in me. Yes, this is one freaky video, but Royal Blood is just one amazing band. Hard to believe that only 2 guys are making all that racket, and that the guitar is a bass. I've seen them live twice and they simply grip it and rip it. Never miss them. Got it? Good, because this post will self-destruct in 10 seconds.
That's it for now. I'm going to reward myself this weekend with the treat of doing my taxes. The Man told me that would be a fun break from his ongoing torture. But I'm also going to do something that I love, which is work on some fabulous posts for your reading entertainment. I have the Teenage Fanclub show to review, and that will be up on Sunday, I promise. And I'm working on my Best Playlist Ever posts, too.
Have a good weekend, ok? And come back to hang out with me, ok? Thanks rockers. One last song in honor of doing my taxes by the best band ever.
