How to end up handcuffed backstage at an REO Speedwagon concert.

The Title Of This Piece Alone Was Going To Be Enough To Get It A Close Look At Being Reblogged. After Reading The Whole Story, I Was Totally Sold. This Piece Made Me Smile, Something I Haven’t Done A Lot Of, Of Late.
Very Cool Beans, Indeed. 🙂

Cave of Fame

I need some kind of rock n roll diploma to hang by my computer to justify me as a blogger of rock music; so I will tell this story from 1982.

My taste in music is not always as good as I think- now or in the past

Case in point:

Renee Writes Here


Shrooms shared with strangers.

Rebellious young woman, aboard a technicolor bus.

Trees are blue.

Sky,  green.

Tasting colors and seeing sounds.

Voices come to Melanie like the droning of adults on Charlie Brown cartoons.

Wah, wah, wah, wah….


Thought there’d be free love.

No such thing.

Everything has a price.

Even sex without that word.

Wanted to be enlightened; intellectual.

Have to get off this bus now.

To go home.

Covered in grime from days with strangers.

Will a hot shower remove the dirt?

Of past, present, future?

Melanie exits the bus.

Extends thumb, to begin her journey home.
