    Was talking to my kid a couple weeks ago on what we would call it if we did another release of songs. His answer:

    "The Bald Man Chronicles"

    This is the country version of pop musics "uptown girl".

    I wear a greasy ball cap
    I like my shirt untucked
    I spend Saturdays working on my truck
    I don't like to fight
    But I ain't scared to bleed
    Most don't mess with a guy like me

    'Cause guys like me drink too many beers on Friday after work
    Our best blue jeans have skoal rings
    We wear our boots to church
    So rough around the edges
    It's hard to believe
    That girls like you
    Love guys like me..

    Song does have a sweet little bridge solo though. Not too much, not too little.

    Nice music, but I think the lead singer is Miming. Other than that, I’m not keen on Heavy Metal :rolleyes:

    I bought a used 2x10 cabinet couple weeks ago
    Well i showed up at this guys house right in time for there band practice
    The guy had a partscaster pluged into a Marshall Jcm900,,he said try it out
    Now these guys were soft rock band everybody but the drummer were in there 50’s
    So I picked up the guitar and the only one ready to play was that drummer
    So i couldnt help myself,,,i said,”Can you kick those double pedals or are they for looks”?
    He just smiled and i started one of my all time childhood goto cover tunes,,,,to the open mouth looks from the band and the laughing of the drummer busting it out

    @heltershelton, back when punk was young, there was an old house in Adams Morgan (DC) called Madams Organ that was used for avant garde type bands, and they had punk shows there pretty often. One of them, I think it was the Insect Surfers had a grey haired middle aged singer known as "Mr. Ott". I don't remember him being considered out of place at all. It was part of the punk scene to accept oddities.

    Madam's Organ was a fun place to go, with no cover that I recall, cheap beer, and few cares. They had bands play upstairs and in the basement, alternating so one could set up while the other was playing. The place is still there, but I think it has progressed into a legit club. You can find it with a Google search.

    I like to throw just a hint of tremolo on it sometimes.. Especially the intro lick and verse chords. Gives it a different vibe.

    I jam with some folks, I'm the 'old man guitar player', and I'm always willing to get carried away if the drummer is into it, usually about 1/2 hour before the session is scheduled to end. Yea.

    I ran this punk club in atlanta in about 1998 and the US Bombs came and played there a few times. the first time, they showed up in this van, and the lead singer fell out onto the street he was so hammered. they played a good show and we drank all night and busted beer bottles all over the club. the next morning was a bummer. anyway, those guys were in their 40s.
