"Hell hounds on my trail..."

It's been a strange week. I was driving down Barton Street into the old core of Hamilton. I had my CD of Crowbar's "Official Music" on the van player.

Just as Biscuit Boy (Richard Newel) was blowin' "Hoy, Hoy, Hoy!" I pass a new diner with a bright new sign. "Crowbar Restaurant", it says.

The following day I'm in a thrift store picking through old vinyl LPs and find a great cover of a release called "Super Blues" with Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters and Willy Dixon. Unfortunately there's no LP inside - it's an empty cover.

I get home and I'm putting some CDs back in the rack and taking out some fresh ones for new stock in the van when my cat jumps up on the top of the CD rack. This rack is just over my head in height and the cat knocks down a CD - it's the same album, "Super Blues"! I must have bought it years ago, put it up there and forgot about it.

What's next?:eek:

You'll be driving along listening to "Synchronicity" and then be pulled over by the police.

Trust me, if your formative years were founded on Crowbar you would NOT be driving along listening to "Synchronicity"!:frown:

Old guys like me want their music "official". We were pre-video. The Police and the entire New Wave scene were just trail-blazers for metrosexuals.

Except for Wendy O Williams, of course. Couldn't get more punk than strips of electrician's tape for pasties.:eek:

As Austin Powers said: "The 80's? Well, there was a flock of seagulls. That was about it!"
"I gotta boogie for the doctor...I gotta boogie for the nurse."
It's not that I'm a huge fan of '80's rock, I was just pointing out the synchronicity of your experiences. Life can be poetic at times. I was also a Crowbar fan back in the day. Oh what a feelin', what a russshh!
