I hate festivals
And big shows
I love small clubs
And intimate shows
I hate covid-19.
I hate the divide… big chasm
between punk bands
and their fans
I hate the good security sherpas!
I hate being a face in the crowd
I love being backstage
I love Queen
I hated seeing them at the Long Beach giant coliseum in 1977.
I loved riding in the Santa Monica mountains on my white mustang.
I heard Native American braves screaming
in the wind as we ran our horses through the hills together.
Around the time Elton played at the TROUBADOUR in Hollywood in the early 1970s.
I love my Empty Sky LP I bought from friend Brady at his garage records for sale day.
I hate big Elton John shows
I hate The Angry Samoans
I love a few of their songs
Metal Mike is a wise old fool
I guess he hates me now
I love Bernie Taupin
who is only 3 inches taller than I
