What’s a curmudgeon?
A cranky old whatever who shouldn’t be old enough to say or think things like, “Why, back in the day we had good bands…..bands like Yes….or even Bad Company….or Jethro Tull….or (fill in the blank)….?”
There were some pretty great bands back then!
That’s why they call it “classic rock”.
Surely, there were.
But look at this band.
Look at the musicianship….the show!
This is a pretty darn good band.
So….what do I have to complain about when there are bands like Umphrey’s McGee around?
I bought a Sirius radio to keep me company while I’m driving the mail around….and lately I’ve been listening to a station called “Jam On”.
Hah! That’s the loophole in this whole “workaday contract with the DEVIL”….I can JAM OUT while I’m driving around in circles.
Don’t tell anybody.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed a lot of these “jam bands”….and really pleasantly surprised to discover this band.
I guess that I could start doing Sudoku puzzles….or I could just start listening to Umphrey’s McGee.
I think that I’d enjoy the music more than the puzzles.
