By this time in the evening... I was pretty well lit... tired... suffering through a migraine and tired of getting the shit knocked out of me. So I decide to sit my ass right on the stage, in the middle, in front of Eric. Think he really cares? Not a chance? Did I get my mandatory Eric black eye? You betcha!

That is where I've been... and where I have been. Gonerfest that is. Talk about a good time! Of course I went down to Memphis for the specific reason to see The Oblivians and The New Bomb Turks... and got to see many other great bands while I was there. Kalamazoo was in the house! And as far as I knew, only two other people from Chicago. Now I have to say a month later my body is still feeling the effects of that show. Someday I will have to slow down and realize that I'm not 18 anymore.
WAY too many to list. But I can tell of some notable ones:
Slayer Vinyl Box Set
Moby Grape - Wow (First Pressing)
Ohio Express - Chewy Chewy
Love - Revisited
Mott The Hoople - Rock N Roll Queen
No Bunny - First Blood
Allman Brothers - Eat A Peach
The Marvelettes - Mr. Postman
It's funny as I start going through my collection, I forget what I have and what I don't. I need to create my own personal POS system to inventory my collection.
As far as equipment goes... I got a late 80s Gibson SG. No knock off... the real deal. And man does this thing play like butter! I can't wait to really bust it out!
Well... off to write for the other things that I need to really work on. It seems the older I get the more things I need to take care of and not enough time to do them all in. 2 1/2 jobs, 2 bands, severals pets, a home to take care of. I still find time in my life to keep on keepin' on!
