Gimme weed, whites, and wine

I have had this song stuck in my head since yesterday. It's called Willin' originally made famous by Little Feat in the 70's, but has been covered by everyone from Linda Rondstadt to the Black Crowes (THANK YOU, PHOEBOS APOLLON. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE.) I've always had a soft, drooling spot for folk rock, and I reckon I always will.

Every time I listen to a new Crowes show I've downloaded, I am constantly amazed at the creepy coincidental evolution my musical taste has taken since I saw them in 1991 at my very first rock concert. With each album, the band just kept getting better. I know that By Your Side might be considered a monkey wrench, and aside from Horsehead and Virtue and Vice I would have to agree. However, even the greatest bands are granted at least one detour, and if By Your Side is the worst they can do, I'd like to be that awful.

Kinda like how all those Beatle 'fucking around in the studio on a bad day" bootleg takes are ten times greater than many other musicians could produce on their best day. Whenever anyone asks me why I don't play music much anymore, I give them that excuse. By now you're thinking to yourself, "That's one of the most pathetic cop-outs I've ever read."

Yes. Yes it is.
