Geezerpalooza

While the James Muretich Rock 'n' Roll Circus event that took place Sunday night at Old Flames Central doesn't really have anything to do with either of my books, directly, it was a good promo event. And an opportunity to catch up with some of the punk gang from ye olden days. Holy. Saw The Smokin' 45s, Blacktop Five and Forbidden Dimension but took a miss on The Von Zippers. I'm afraid it was too loud, my throat was getting sore from having to yell and I was tired. And I've seen The Von Zippers before anyway.

Entertainment between the musical acts was provided by the Kabuki Guns Burlesque Troupe. Crescent, ex-Virgins drummer, remarked on the fact that the female involvement in the show was limited to stripping. I'd thought the very same thing all week. She and I talked about how things haven't changed for the better in the last thirty years as far as women in rock music (and many other endeavors) go.

Ah, well, no use getting all preachy. We had a good time for the most part, even if we are all old.

Pffft!

The real geezers are the Rolling Stones. The yuck factor ever increaseth.

Hi, Diane:

Yeah, this is what worries me. Will the friends of my youth persist in this and be doing this twenty years from now? The mind boggles. Yuck, indeed.
