By mid-afternoon today, traditional ‘Holi’ festivities were over. The friends and moi sat down to seriously chill 😉
Naturally, Sabbath dominated.
Then a friend made an ‘Absolut’ mistake. He ummm got into a gender thing about rockers and riffs. Something like ‘girls and guitars don’t gel’. Tsk..tsk…male chauvinism, I guess. Like what Tom Robbins says:’One of the other musicians said that the tambourine is a female due to the fact that it makes a pretty jingle and is designed to be spanked. That is the more recent, patriarchal attitude, I suppose” ( Skinny Legs and All)
Huh? Yeah ? I had to remind him of Lita Ford! She packed enough punch to jam onstage with the great Tony Iommi,please!
We didn’t have Lita’s latest album ” Living Like A Runaway”, (released two years back I think) but hail youtube! The men looked a wee bit sheepish when this powered on the Denon 5.1 speakers 😀
She is back in form after a long hiatus.Go Lita!
Did I tell you guys that once I almost thrashed the hell outa fella for pretending to like Deep Purple and not being aware of the line-ups ? That was so blasphemous,non ? 😀
I gotta go now,guys. Need a hot water bath to clear out the delicious toxins of today 😉 So Sylvia Plath says “There must be quite a few things a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them…Whenever I’m sad I’m going to die, or so nervous I can’t sleep, or in love with somebody I won’t be seeing for a week, I slump down just so far and then I say: ‘I’ll go take a hot bath.I never feel so much myself as when I’m in a hot bath.”
