I’m a 50 cent millionaire!

The vacation is over! My card access is in place and I’m back on the air. It was an odd show because I had all the same cds that I used for my coverage of the squidpod show two weeks ago. Yet I probably only played half of the cds. I found the other sources of music via a combination of rivendell and youtube. I even play Just Because from Jane’s Addiction. Truly a great song. I’ve posted that below. 50 cent millionaire is a line from the AC/DC song Down Payment Blues. Great reference to the illusion of the money rock stars supposedly make. I’ve been writing a lot of metal entries and I wanted to back away from that. Maybe in another few weeks I’ll play a metal show. Anyway, the show list is below. I do plan to play an all women’s show soon.

Going with the flow

Yeah I could have also gone with Flo from progressive, maybe later. Anyway I think yesterday was our best show yet. Music is very much like art, you need to have a feel for it and the music. You need to be able to make each song fit and sometimes that is hard to do. The first couple of shows it took a little bit to get up and running. I had to re-introduce myself to the mixing board. Now I have to figure out the cd players to make them do what I need them to do. These are Denon players and they are made to countdown the songs, someone had messed around with the settings so now they count up and that’s no good because you don’t know exactly when the song finishes. Granted I know most of the songs I play backwards and forwards but there are some songs I don’t. In the last half of our show, I did a John James Sykes run, he played for the following three bands – Tygers of Pan Tang, Thin Lizzy and Whitesnake. Interestingly enough those albums he played on were the biggest commercial success each band had ever known. The next run went like this – Van Halen, David Lee Roth, Chickenfoot, Joe Satriani. I messed up, it should have been David Lee Roth, Van Halen, Chickenfoot then Joe Satriani. The tie is obvious, if not, here it is. David Lee Roth was obviously the vocalist in Van Halen, Sammy Hagar was the vocalist for both Van Halen and Chickenfoot. Joe Satriani was the guitarist in Chickenfoot. If I wanted to go just one more I could have played Janes addiction afterwards, Chad Smith the connection here, etc. I will have a show where I can connect all of the bands for two hours straight!
