Just for squirts and wiggles, I thought that I would include whatever the hell I'm listening to along with the date. Do you care? I tend to care what people are enjoying. May even get turned onto something new.
I missed telling you about my previous CD's in the player. Saturday, it was an Ultra-Lounge collection, Volume 16, 'Mondo Hollywood'. The whole series is awesome and downright fun.
Sunday, it was the Vinnie Vincent Invasion's 'All Systems Go'. Not a great album, but it has it's moments. Mr. Vincent was the last guy in KISS that wore make-up. He wore it for one short tour until they unmasked with the 'Lick It Up' album. Then, we saw his true ugliness.
He was only in KISS for a short time. If you were to ask Gene Simmons, I'm sure he would be real diplomatic about it. Vinnie Vincent is an incredible guitarist. His main problem; he goes all out on every solo. Playing as fast as he possibly can. Squeezing in a crap load of musical notes. Simmons has compared Vincent's style to the sound of a bumblebee buzzing and banging inside a sealed, glass jar.
I live in a residential neighborhood in Greensboro, NC. Not that much wildwife bouncing around the neighborhood. But, as I was enjoying a cold one outside, alone, and in the middle of the night, I noticed rabbits running around. I never see them during the day. Where the hell do they live? I've never heard of anyone coming into work limping because they fell into a rabbit hole in their yard. Huh?
Have you ever noticed that leftover rice really sucks?
Here's a beef!
The Pretenders. Rock n' Roll Hall Of Fame. Why?
What have they contributed. There are only a handful of songs that I can recall. But, not enough to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame. Of course, this is only my (possibly stupid) opinion.
No one I know has provided me with any good reasons for their induction. This includes everyone I work with at Rock 92. They know music. Doug McKnight stared long and hard through the window behind me searching his mind for an answer. And he's our Program Director. He did not arrive at a compelling answer.
Is it because Chrissie Hynde gave birth to a little Kink?
"Hey, Eddie Van Halen... Why did you pick up a guitar?"
"Chrissie Hynde, man."
"Ozzy Osbourne... Where did you get the idea for the thick eyeliner?"
"Chrissie Hynde, man."
"Alanis Morrisette... Why were you born a woman?"
I don't get it and maybe someone will give me a reason or several good reasons. Who am I kidding? I still won't get it.
