Well, here we are at the butt end of a fabulous long, holiday weekend, featuring My Birthday bookended by Valloween (very scary) and Presidents Day (AKA Extra Day to Sleep In). How many of you ancients out there recall back in the day when we got both Lincoln’s BirthdayandWashington’s Birthday as days off from school? And now they’ve consolidated it into one effing holiday about which no one seems to be quite sure of the significance. It’s a rip off, for sure, but I did enjoy having the extra day to buy groceries, do laundry, eff around on Face Book and conduct one of the most amazing drummer interviews of my career! So I guess it evens out. Tomorrow: Back to the Grind.
I remember hearing Alice Cooper (the band)’s “Muscle of Love” back in the day and just grooving on it’s crazy riffs, being completely sexually naive and honestly not thinking much about what the hell Alice was singing about. The hilarious thing is that these days I’m extremely close friends with the Alice Cooper band’s drummer, Neal Smith, and he has assured me that when Alice sings “Holy Muscle of Love/Must be a gift from above,” he’s definitely singing about having a boner. Weee!!! Neal has given me a lot of juicy inside dope on the band, but you will have to wait for our book to salivate over it. Happy Valloween everyone. Play safe and don’t forget to protect your heart!!!
I would like to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine’s Day (aka Valloween)! And to all of my single friends out there who hate Valentine’s Day, just remember that it’s better to be on your own than in a crappy relationship!
