Classic Rock Bottom


Here is something I did in the Summer of 2006- a particularly brutal summer, surpassed only by July this year.
This was my First Annual Summer Lollapalooza- and so far the only, lol!
In this first of 4 parts, we begin with as ROCKING a set of music as I have ever opened with.
Then the best song ever about summer in the city, and another that was brand new.
In fact, I’ll be playing a bit more relatively current music than maybe usual.
But I think I can promise you that before we are finished, somewhere in there, you will hear one or more of your favorite summer songs!
We will end this episode with the beginning of a Long Hot Summer set, to be continued next time.
Some GOOOOD summer music- it was real fun doing these shows for me, and that feeling will come through the ether.
Strip and enjoy!
Uh…LADIES only, lol!

So she WAS a wiseass AND ignored you!

As for the concert, I remember everything I have ever seen or done.

When I told her that someone asked me to say "hi" she basically said, "yeah, whatever". Biggest mistake she made in her one hit wonder life.

I was in high school when I went to that Ramones concert, I believe it was in 1982 because I'm almost positive Johansen was on tour promoting his album that came out that year. I could have been drunk or stoned when I went (maybe both), so maybe it was in an actual gymnasium or something, but I don't remember that way.

There was a time you weren't jaded?

What the hell did Katrina do, just be a wiseass or ignore you?

David Johansen and The Ramones at a college- now THAT'S the way to enjoy a concert!

I wasn't jaded back then when I met Katrina. I was just passing on a message from a nurse I worked with whose daughter went to school with her. Katrina was a total b*tch to me so I cursed her. Really can't say anything about The Waves though, didn't speak with any of them.

I saw David Johansen open for The Ramones in the early 80's. I swear it was at a college, and it wasn't in a concert venue, it was just in a large open hall. I think it was NJIT, but am not 100% sure.

You can't stand Hot Hot Hot OR Katrina And The Waves?
Man, what is wrong with you guys, lol?
Good thing redemption is always just around the corner!
You know, Summer In The City is witten by my man John Sebastian!
A staple whenever I think of him.
And you dug Regina Spektor too.
Never in history have you and Jon agreed so much, lol!
And the Golden Pell to Style Council, a surprise!
Got a couple more  Long Hot Summers coming up next.
Two duds...uh, I counted NONE, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing, Katrina says hello and if you get the ice picks out of your ears you'll like that song,

Maybe you heard it in 2006...impossible!
You met Katrina?
Must have been that irresistable charm of yours combined with your venting, lol!
I don't care, I love that song, and it's doubtful I'll meet her.
You associate many songs with movies I notice.
Me, I always concntrate on the song, and even sober forget they were even in movies, lol!
Now if I continue with that Movie Series someday, I WILL research them, maybe even Die Hard With A Vengeance.
You liked Regina Spektor, and I thought I had a funny line about her being 26, lol!
The sound is really low on this show for some reason?
I noticed some fluctuation, not sure why as I re-mastered it, but nothin too drastic.
But you had to turn the volume well past 11...what are you, Spinal Tap, lol!
So it was a good first half, except for Katrina.
Damn, that's my new Theme Song, lol!
Thanks for the listen and writing, Katrina.& Bruce say hello, lol,

Uh 0h.  I can't stand that opener.  Hot Hot Hot...wasn't it in a commercial?  Anyway, I've just always disliked that song.

You redeemed yourself on the follow up.  And you are right, despite the tons of versions of that song (Dancing In the Street), you played the best and ultimate version.

Back in the dog house with Katrina And The Waves.  As Jon would say, get the ice picks out of my ears and quit playing that song.

Redeemed again with Summer In The City.  Terrific song.  Believe it or not, I really liked the Regina Spektor song.  Nice vocal on that one.  But I'm giving the Golden Pell to Style Council.  Long Hot Summer was great.

Other than the two duds, nice picks buddy.

Oh, and the sound is really low on this show for some reason, had to turn the volume well past 11.

Comment by Jon on August 19, 2013 at 9:23am

This show kinda sounded familiar, especially with that Katrina song. Man, she was a complete b*tch to me. Not a nice person and, just to vent, I told her she would be no better than a 1 hit wonder. HA!!!!!

For a long time now, ever since seeing "Die Hard With A Vengeance", everytime I hear that Spoonful Of Luvin' song I just want to watch the beginning of that movie.

Regina Spektor? Nice.

Style Council? THat was Style Council? I thought they were more new wavey.

This was nice, except for Katrina.
