Greetings from Laurel Canyon!
For some reason the date August 22nd rings a bell. I’m not sure why, but my DNA is still craving the tranquility of an endless summer. Here in the canyon, the truth is school is already back in session. As I struggle to come to grips with that fact, I can no longer pretend I’ll soon be slipping back into a lazy summer.
I’ve been reaching for my records. Songs help me to make sense of where I am in the world. (Is that too or deep or stupid?)
The good news is I have three days of solid rock ‘n’ roll this weekend. Might be a cool weekend to remember my ear plugs. Grungy old and new pals, The Strokes, NIN, Blood Bros Soundgarden and more are blasting sets through the southland—it’s the last licks for the summer of 2014 and the west coast is leading the charge.
Fuck Yeah is this weekend and based at the foot of the LA Coliseum—it’s gonna be goliath!
