          • You dorks got me thinking about old songs, and reminded me of one of my favorites - Roger Miller "King of the Road." Classic lyrics - "No phone, no pool, no pets, I ain't got no cigarettes. Third boxcar midnight train, destination Bangor Maine. . . .etc.

            Reminds me of when I was a kid these bums would come off of East Colfax and my saint of a Mom would feed them on the front porch. Same ones would come every year for a day or two in the summer and got themselves all the bologna and cheese sandwiches they could eat, chips and milk. Me and my little brother used to like talking to them about their travels. They were bums, but nice guys, they actually would clean themselves up for the meal, they looked forward to it. I could tell they made sure they were "in their finest" so to speak, hair freshly washed at a convenient garden hose, all that.

            Some other classics in that genre are Bob Seger's "Ramblin' Gamblin" Man." And Allman Brothers "Midnight Rider."

                Yeah I can live without ever seeing Kid Rocks face again but Korn really that first album in D minor was crazy awesome.

                the first White Zombie album was blowing me up also....

                • Forgot one from my rap days and this one is a great album even now when I am not into rap in the last 20 years.

                  De La Soul : 3 Feet and Rising

                  I think to add to a sports take, one of the rappers son goes to FSU or Auburn and is on their football team.

                      Hated Korn until I saw them in concert. They played with power man 5000 and papa roach. They may be the tightest band I have ever seen.

                        Craziest concert I went to was in Lorelei, West Germany. Built by the Nazis, ampitheatre overlooking the Rhine River. Jefferson Starship was supposed to be the headliner, but they didn't show. Grace Slick was drunk. It was raining cats and dogs, everybody was soaked and pissed off. The Germans stormed the stage, tore down the canopy, wrecked all the equipment, put it in a pile on the stage and set it on fire.

                        I remember walking out of there and the Polizei were standing on the rim of the ampitheatre with their submachine guns they carried, just shaking their heads and letting things go as long as people weren't killing each other. The parking lot was a field of mud and local farmers were charging 100 marks to pull people out with their tractors, they had a field day. We had rented one of the bigass Audi sedans for the trip, that frontwheel drive got us out of the lot without tractor help.

                        Not too shabby . . . . . .

                          Power Man's front man is Rob Zombies (white zombie) cousin I believe.

                            Haven't listened to Korn since Follow The Leader. My cousin's band actually opened for them where I live after that album was released, so that was cool.
