Tuesday 23rd December

TO THE CORE:

Before Iggy, before Townsend & Moon, there was Joe.
Rainbow tie-died, screwed up features, sweat soaked,
playing air guitar with a guttural abandon transmitting
a passion I aspired to. Gathered in the local flea-pit,
Black Sabbaths’s Geezer Butler sat somewhere way behind,
I leaned increasingly forward in my seat, closer to
the screen, to smell, to taste & ingest that passion
as ‘WoodStock’ the film played out. Santana & Ritchie Havens
gave me the roots of rhythm guitar, Sly gave me endless groove,
but Joe showed me how far you had to go if you loved music
to your core.

  1. Oh, and where is your core? Have you found it? 🙂

    This is Everything with INXS

    and Michael who found perfection and then checked out

    The Full Moon, Dirty Hearts is good too :
    “Don’t be surprised by the way it is,
    I’ve broken bones for less.
    I took a voyage on the deep blue sea.
    But I had to swim away,
    I swam away that day”

    I´m amazed,
    but I´am still haven’t found what I’m looking for.

    Or have I?

    Merry Christmas to you all!
