Tell dem already, we have to tell dem again…

My younger Granddaughter and I at the Tex-Mex restaurant that my older Granddaughter worked at. Neither one of my Granddaughters really dig where I’m coming from musically, even though I have extremely broad taste and appreciation, they are both exclusively top 40 pop fans. I am glad that at least they like some kind of music, have hope for them to grow and actually the older one when presented with a live set of the Viagra Boys, told me she kind of, liked them. I don’t care what genre you pick, fucking polka for all I care, you have to respect that someone is doing something creative. Having played in bands for a brief period, I understand the effort and risk that goes into creating songs. I also understand what it’s like to be at the very foot of the mountain of musical success, playing parties and small gigs…not really trying to be successful at anything but having a good time along the way.

Fucking eh, when you talk about top 5 metal bands for me in the pan-genre of metal, you got Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus, Venom, Weedeater and Dead Horse. Like all those bands, when I was first exposed to them, Dead Horse was a mind blower (shit will make even the baldest motherfucker grow lovely long locks). Pretty sure I’ve mentioned these guys a time or two and how Ron Kuka (RIP) and Bob Kasitz turned me onto them along with a slew of other greats from the late 80’s and early 90s. Dead horse did a 2020 remix of their first album and it’s absolutely scorching…this has always been my fave tune…

A couple of badass Armenian gals from 1895…just love this photo and wish that perhaps I could have shared a cup of coffee with them.

The Bern has an anime! I know folks have their opinions on the man and his philosophy and my own opinions are pretty whacked out to most, but he reminds me of my Grandpa in a few ways, which makes him cool to me.

My virtual pal Björn during the COVID thing has been listening to his record collection alphabetically and has been letting me know where he’s at with various selections. The other day he hit the Saints and what a perfect place to be…such a kick ass band! I haven’t heard this song in 30 years…

Murderer! Murderer!

  1. Don’t give up on the grandkids musical tastes yet, I watched my daughter go from top 40 pop to asking me “hey dad you ever heard of the Descendants, and the Velvet Underground?. But i agree, any music that makes them feel something is good. Stay warm Bro!

    1. Thanx B! Worried about my girls because I was a teenager once and know what’s up with boys…hahhahah. I have to remember to just present them with ideas and allow them to make informed choices.
