Ya know what, my mind’s still tired right now. I still don’t want to do a whole lot of digging and research on bands or musicians and their discography and all that stuff. I still need a mental rest for the remains of the day. For that matter, as wild as this whole week has been, I need something that makes me want to pull out my Fender “air guitar” and just play like a wild man, kickin’ tail and takin’ names later.
“Daddysangbassdude Radio!!!” Would you please give me a playlist … again? Which channel? Oh, let’s see, let’s go with my “Stevie Ray Vaughan Channel” for now. Yeah, I’m in the mood for some good old rock and rhythm & blues. I’m ready for those cowboy boots and that snazzy hat and that guitar with the big “SRV” on it that looks like it was run over on a dirt road a few times by a big Mack dump truck that was fully loaded, and for SRV to play it like no one had since the days of Hendrix.
I’m ready to shed a tear at the loss.
I’m ready for some Double Trouble, one of the best backing bands a guitar slinger like SRV could ever ask for, with the likes of Chris “Whipper” Layton on drums, Tommy Shannon on bass, and Reese Wynans on keys. I am ready to BOOGIE ON DOWN TO TEXAS, SRV-STYLE!!!
I need a SMALL break. Whew!
