From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

Dark Sunglasses: Don't Leave Home Without Them

Nothing is worse after a late night than a beautiful sunny morning. That observation, and the prompt from Linda, who chose the Chrissie Hynde song "Dark Sunglasses" for Lance's 100 Word Song, made this week's entry relatively easy to put together.

So... when we last heard from the partners-in-crime...


As she lay on the bed lost in memories of the night before, the dark sunglasses shaded her eyes from the morning sun beaming through the hotel room window. Damn that was fun. 

Rock & Roll always is. 

Just the right ratio of music and booze. Not enough to make bad decisions, but enough for a good time.

Almost time for a shower, breakfast and the trip back to the place called Reality. A lot of shows, a lot of road trips, and a lot of laughs, over a lot of years. Wouldn't change a thing.

No retreat. No surrender.

  3. My problem was, I could never stop at "just enough for a good time." I went on beyond into "party till you puke or end up with someone bad for you." I still love the music, but the booze and the bad boys are out of my life. It's less exciting, but I'll live longer.
    My piece is here.
