a wee anecdote; Ken and Gee Julie, Brigham Circle station, Mission Hill paradise (to riff on the Kinks); we eatin' at Flann O'Brien's irish pub, me havin' bangers'n'mash'n'BEANS coz that's what Ringo eats. they're playin' buncha classic rock and some college-age kid goes "I'll guzzle this beer if you can tell me the name of the song AND the artist"; it was "Get it On"! besides explainin' to Gee Julie how i stole the chorus for "that's Cool", the kids guess title and NO ONE remembered T. Rex! I holler "T.Rex! flip side was "Raw Ramp"! bought it on VINYL when it came out"; gud thing i din't have kids...."today's music aint got the same soul"....

"FINALLY attended a medium class at Quincy's First Spiritualist Church; it's actually kinda like the service; meditation,then the mediums get up. Miss Lyn should lissen to THIS mantra from a guy who championed masterbation vs. meditation Back in '72 (Bob Seger album and song was "Pumpin' to Playboy"!); "forget the stresses of the day....the week...the month.....the year....forget the stresses of THE LIFETYME"....."they believe in reincarnation; hey!hey!" what I saw, meditation, "nothin' is real, nothin' to git hung about"....Solomon (Grueberger) 's SPECTRE kept creepin' up (O. Rex photo in late '76 Rock Scene); VERY shadowy my Dad on "Landmine" picture sleeve, then outta NOWHERE: "Sweet Home Alabama" and pictures of Lynyrd Skynyrd! "Dreams i'll never see'(Allmans)....swelling in leg gone down "feel the white light on your crown" (didnt i think of Lou Reed?)...yes I WILL go back and if "you wanna be in my gang, OH YEAH!"; COME ALONG! 40 west street, quincy!"....
