A Legend In His Own Lunchtime

You know, I may seem like a relatively cool person, laid-back, a little geeky, but generally OK. But, when a song like this comes on, and I happen to be in the bathroom, electric toothbrush in hand...

...the hand is suddenly not holding a toothbrush, but a microphone...I hear the crowd in front of me, calling out, rocking out...the damp hair swinging around my head is not fresh from the shower but laden with a hard night's sweat...
Wasted YearsCollapse )
...and then, I think back to the last few months of 1999, and I remember my band on stage at the Tiger's Den...I remember New Year's Eve, '99, going into 2000, and a certain petite, dark-haired beauty who sent word through a friend that seeing me singing was "pure sex"...I remember breaking from practice and stepping outside for a smoke, and steaming in the frigid country night air...I remember Wain banging his head, knowing that he liked what he heard, and feeling like that meant a lot, as he was a fellow musician and a producer/recording engineer, to boot...Phil telling me that he was impressed, and kept wondering when I was gonna run out of air as I belted out a long, growling, wailing final note...and the music all comes back to me...
Mustang SallyCollapse )
...and for a brief shining moment, I'm a rockstar again.
