Got the feeling they'd happily have stayed there all night talking crap with everyone of the audience. The bassist, Jake, looked like his puppy had been shot when I told him I had to quit yakking and go home. And yeah, they looked mightily pleased when I suggested that they had a higher purpose, sneaking real bluegrass to the kids behind the thin veneer of a comedy persona. The banjo player pulled a real "by jove, I think he's got it" face.<BR/><BR/>So yeah, I got drunk and ranted to a band about how much I loved them. Kinda like Ali Jackson and The Hellacopters.Markhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17791352096505994671noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8210377.post-1159618930245216072006-09-30T13:22:00.000+01:002006-09-30T13:22:00.000+01:00I liked the wee mandolin players tattoo, rockin in...I liked the wee mandolin players tattoo, rockin in the free world with Betty-Boo. Class. Apparently shes a dirty bitch. And the Banjo player is a real nice guy, and he ROCKS!!<BR/><BR/>So, where they better on Thursday or Friday night? And was the Guiness just as sweet?<BR/><BR/>At least you didn't have to get up at 5:50AM the next morning to go to work, I'm totally wrecked. Still drinkin with Stevie today though, you know, football and all that.Jeffhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/12744233011607643311noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8210377.post-1159599855673867162006-09-30T08:04:00.000+01:002006-09-30T08:04:00.000+01:00i remember years ago trying to blend punk rock and...i remember years ago trying to blend punk rock and blues together. i was never able to pull it off [oh mrs!], probably still can't - when i record myself doing boogie-woogie guitar i just sound like the sweet.<BR/><BR/>anyway, the white stripes were probably the best ones who've tried it.<BR/><BR/>i even had a name for it, but never used it as it didn't quite sound right - blues punk :blush:Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
