cover bands! uuugh!

Somebody was giving me shit at a party he other night after I said that I had no desire to play in a cover band. My argument was that I had more than enough songs of my own to play for an entire night and honestly the thrill is gone for me to play anyone else’s songs unless they are in the band with me. He kept on about “96 tears” this and “Ichycoo Park” that and I was like…WHY?! I ain’t GOTTA do that and it just AIN’T FUN…for me! First of all, I DID do it for about a year but that was long after The Woods thing had fallen apart and I needed to get my drum chops back. For that purpose it was fine, but damn if I wasn’t bored outta my mind playing “Honky Tonk Women” and “Brown Eyed Girl”at every gig! When I said that there wasn’t enough time in the night to play all the TA songs I wanted to play he said “Well call me when you write a “Because the Night”. Uuuuuhhhh….OK, I will.
Here’s a tip for ya, got dry eyes? Save ya money for eye drops. I got the perfect “solution”. Reach just under the tip of your nose and pull some of those little hairs out! Aaaaahhhh!!! Now that will bring tears to your eyes! It hurts like a bitch! Try it. Right now. No…I mean it…NOW!
There's a new Mexican restraunt opening nearby. It's called El Fogon. I'd like to give them a motto that I think they could use as advertisement...
"Want good Mexican? Go to Fogon!"
Don’t buy Lowe’s Valspar brand of paint. I ain’t gonna SAY it sucks, but I don’t know of any other way to put it! So I’m just gonna think it.
My dog is still alive, damnit!

Terry; I got your point but I realy enjoy to hear some bands covering songs. There is a realy good one... beside their own stuff they play for exemple songs of Neil Young and the B52´s... I their name starts with "Y....." ;-)))
Best wishes,
Arthur

Rock Star,

You're STILL the only guy I know of who has a song written about his own songs.

the best cover you've ever done terry was with the k-mart hot dogs when you did that a mashup of the eurythmics "would i lie to you" with their song "hairnet".

and what was with the "hall and oates" buddies? that would have been a winner had you kept that one up ;)
