TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Our band could be your life / Real names’d be proof / Me and Mike Watt played for years / Punk rock changed our lives

We learned punk rock in Hollywood / Drove up from Pedro / We were fucking corn dogs / We’d go drink and pogo

Mr. Narrator / This is Bob Dylan to me / My story could be his songs / I’m his soldier child

Our band is scientist rock / But I was E. Bloom and Richard Hell / Joe Strummer, and John Doe / Me and Mike Watt, playing guitar

Hearing Dee Boone’s words rocketed me back to age 20. Oh, those were days filled with rocking fun times.

By the way, has the pandemic and fentanyl bummed your Halloween? Certainly more so than AIDS and ecstasy? The holiday and time of the year has always been my favorite, so I’m trying to keep my “boo” and “hoos” apart.

This said, I found it way more appealing to pull a few “cry in your soups” into the mix than the usual spooky tunes. The forecast is for absolute ideal weather in the canyon so I’m sending good vibes for all you kids out there.

Please be safe and have a blast.

Idelic Single of the Week: Jacklen Ro – Sunshine (I’m Counting On You)
