Blue Cheer
'highlights of MLK weekend: eleven hours of sleep, Paddington 2, meeting Raggs the cat, watching FOUR Lifetyme dramas, football at Phoenix Landing and also new Star Wars movie. BUT let's not forget ole Hopelessly Obscure guitarist Miguel D'Amour, still needin' a roomate: 617-470-7422. and while he IS still near central square, need to remind him of sally o briens/cantabs gigs; i have ten new messenger messages, booking scheduling! and lastly, 16 jan 68 = FIDDY years of blue cheer releasing Vincebus Eruptum; x-blank-x goin' on a Great Lakes tour so if they cover "summertime blues' b-side "out of focus' in buffalo NY, it'll make up for the Bills playoff loss. oh, yeah, go pats. (half heartedly)"....

"how COULD i forget? (but age 62 2 april i did): Link Wray's daughter facebook friended me! Lotsa vintage photos on her page of "Dad"; when my cuzzin Miss Lyn left the trailer in charleston south caroliny, loaded up the Pinto and moved to Boston town, goin' up I-95, we all DID stop by Dunn, NC, where I got my 175 pound former marine ass out the Pinto and fucken BOWED to the town limits sign raving "BIRTHPLACE OF LINK WRAY!!!"....almost as rabid as Pete Townshend going ape when he met Link, but he's got a more , majestic nose than me; and can jump higher coz he's got a better guitar!"....
