I only wish to be understood by those who will, [and you will, I have no doubt].

If you don't get the punk zeitgeist then that's not my problem. You either were there, or you weren't, I cannot honestly explain the experience.*

Of more interest to me would be the question of whether you can live that - 'be punk' -, and then ever be a conformist in later life.


* scratching head now, wondering how I might explain '77/78 to one of my young relatives.

Focus - Eruption live 1971


There is an era of 'concept' music. Well, none of it I get, as they were all tripping and too clever by half :lol:

But THIS guitar (try c8:00) man it's so good it hurts.

Johnny Cash - 'Hurt"

Did I post this before? :oops:

Sorry, I was listening to it again earlier today. I first heard this by NIN (who of course wrote it). Funny, you wouldn't expect an old man to pick up on a song like this. But. As an American might say, it so works

Happy New Year....A bit early I know but I have so many happy, beautiful friends I thought I'd get the ugly freak out of the way first. After careful consideration of your performance as a friend in 2012 i have decided to extend your friendship for a further 12 months, try not to freak it up

- The real deal for heavy rock that you'll get on tour. Oh and Motorhead. All others are poofters in comparison... or rather, most of them are simply dead.
