Dear Big AL,

robot, grmbl... Hello, Sir. So now Sir George Martin, another one, huh? Another hero dead and gone. Try to explain the importance of Revolver to a youngster. Or even better, don't. Speaking of heroes, a few days ago my alarm went off "Agent Romanoff, you missed me" like it always does (make your move, reindeer games, that never gets old...) Anyway, I had a coffee and went to change programs on the digital satellite receiver. That didn't work out as planned unless the plan was to drive me crazy. The only station to watch with undistorted sound was from Sweden or Norway and played music videos. After some tries I ran out of curses and took it as a sign. I expected ABBA and Roxette all day long. None of those, also no Baby Woodrose or Thorbjo... Theurbro... you know, the other guy. But a lot of stuff I had never heared before.

Especially one band on heavy rotation was something to wrtite home about. Or in this case to Houston, TX. You know Canadian Rock band Monster Truck? Catchy name, huh? Don't tell Me How To Live should be right up your alley, if I'm not totally mistaken. Made me think of The Golden Days Of Leather, Texas Hippie Coalition and Rockcast, of course. Or have you ever heared of the Dutch band The Common Linnets before? In Your Eyes, a bit like Christine Perfect and Fleetwood Mac. Or do you know Huey And The New Yorkers? With Let My People Go, I instantly remembered the voice. Everlast? No, he was the frontman of the Fun Lovin Criminals.

Every now and then they threw in something for the elderly. Mostly AC/DC, ZZ Top, Bon Jovi or Guns with or without Roses (Velvet Revolver). One song was great, though. Eric Clapton - Got To Get Better (Live at Crossroads). Play that funky music, white boy! Or do you know the band Beige Fish? From Belgium, I think. Their cover of The Same Old Blues rivals Skynyrd's. If you want to check out one, as always they are all on UTube.

Okay, no more blabbering, keep on rockin... that's getting old. Spring is coming! Chewin' at a wythm on my bubble gum, Wockcast is out and I want some (Shonen Knife). Yes, they played that, too.
