Welcome To Permanent Geezerhood
More than a few of my recent music purchases have me wondering if I have not at last slipped into permanent geezerhood. The Who, Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones?
Never would have thought I would go there.
The music of school dances and 8-track players. Hash in my pocket, my pipe and my dazed and confused anything you fucking want high school locker.
Guess I ought to permit myself some nostalgia. Yet it seems a little early in life to be looking at old photos. Old photos of skinny, healthy motherfuckers drinking beer from stubbies and smoking cannabis from countries you would not want to visit without a Canadian army escort.
Today I went back to the '70s yet again. BTO have released a 40th anniversary edition of "Not Fragile," one of my favourite records ever. They re-mastered the old record and coupled it with some brilliant concert recordings from cities like Chicago and Dope City.
Do I need to tell you to go fucking buy it?
Do I need to tell you to turn it up loud?
Do I need to tell you to fuck off if you don't?
