I’ll admit it. I care about what people think of me. This morning while sitting on the couch, eating a bowl of Cocoa Pebbles, I was flipping through the TV and landed on something awesome. It was a VH1 Classic episode consisting of nothing but British heavy metal videos from the early 80’s. Classic indeed. As the credits rolled for Judas Priest’s “Breaking the Law” and Matt Pinfield introduced Motörhead’s “Ace of Spades”, I had an epiphany:
What Would Lemmy Do?
What would Lemmy do if he found my little blog and listened to a few of the recent postings? Smooth funk beats. Syncopated jazz fusion grooves. Loops dedicated to James Taylor’s drummer?? I have a feeling his reaction would be something like:
What the f#*@ is this bloody rubbish!!??
He’d then take a pool stick (these heavy metal biker types always have pool sticks laying around) and smash the computer to bits. He’d then set it all on fire, using the bottle of Jägermeister in his right pocket as an accelerant. Finally, in order to put the fire out (realizing this might burn down his mansion), he’d relieve himself all over the pile of flaming circuit boards.
Or at least that’s how I think it would go.
This is NOT the kind of reaction I want to evoke from my readers… let alone Lemmy. With this in mind, I’ve set out to toughen things up around here.
Before recording today’s groove I chugged 5 Red Bull, told my wife to punch me in the face as hard as she could, and then sat down and played this:

Note – I’ve just set a personal record for most umlauts in a post.
