...because he's the man (well, one of the men)
behind this song. And what's that saying, behind every great man is a great behind? No, that's not it. Oh, behind every great man is a great cover version of that great man's song? Yeah, somethin' like that.

Hello. Finished the Keith Richards book 2day. (dosent this picture of Keef look like R?) Never did find out about the spooky descending riff at the end of 19TH NERVOUS BREAKDOWN. I kept hoping ol' Keef was gonna explain how it was done or how he came up with it, but no luck. I really just want to hear the gtrs now, without vocals. Nae offense, Brenda.
Also finished shopping at Fresh Organics in Sausalito. For good. I knew all 8 Bay Area stores had been bought by a huge corporation, but didnt know until yesterday that the big corporation was the Mormons. I aint givin' no mo money to them. And I didnt know they have also bought up so many of the herbal supplement companies. It's tough 2 b a conscientious shopper these days, there's so much to keep up with. 4 sure i dont want my dinero being passed along to this campaign. (Nice pants, Mitt. -Ed.)
No tour or shows or anything...2busy resting up after long walk in the Headlands.

When i worked at Discount Records in Bloomington one of my jobs was to put product in the front windows. I always remember this one. The artwork on the front cover actually upset some ppl and my manager asked me to change the display. Wow. That was so then.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy trying to finish the Keith book.

Yup, that's right, still reading the Keith book. And now R has decided to read it this way, and says Johnny does a terrific job. (Not to be confused with "jobbie", right? -Ed.)
And speaking of jobbie, just when u thought it was safe to go on Facebook, ah boy.
So yeah, still enjoying the book, especially the bits about being in the studio recording all the great songs. Back in the day, folks didnt play to click tracks, and i've noticed that Charlie has a tendency to speed up on the endings or outros of some songs. I never noticed it b4 but when walking with headphones on i have to walk faster on some songs to keep in time. Sometimes i am singing along and i always think that's a little goofy or silly when i hear other ppl do that, but now I'm doing it. Oh well, it's fun.
U should try it! It's exhilarating to loudly sing "Yeah, yeah, yeah, whoooo!" on the end of Brown Sugar while jogging along.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy getting a contact high.

Still reading the Keith Richards autobio. Jeez, how many bedrooms can one guy burn down? It all reminds me of junkies i've known and hung around with and i sure dont miss any of them. Nothing is ever their fault, these things just happen is the way they look at it. And not to give anything away in case u r planning 2 read the book, but Keith has had more serious accidents than i knew about, not just the falling out of the tree episode. Damn tree!
It's highly (heh heh) entertaining 2 read how all the Stones' records were made especially the great bits where Keith explains his 5 string method. It's made a big difference in how i hear the songs now and it's been fun walking around Sausalito with me headphones on. The guitars r just plain crazy beautiful.
Of course, you'll love the bit where he tells something very personal about ol' Mick.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy prancing around the houseboat doing my poncy MJ impression.

Still reading the Keith auto-bio. It was shocking to learn that he and Ronnie Spector were(are?) "an item". Am i the only one who didnt know about this? I went crazy thinking of the possible musical outcomes if they had stayed together. Can u imagine? Think of a really really cool Sonny&Cher kind of thing.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy getting sweaty in my new 22 Sense t-shirt.

A NON TOUR reader reports that she didnt really care about the World Series but liked watching Tim Lincecum.
Another valued reader adds that he's never been interested in sports much, "except for shuttlecock." Hmmmmm. And speaking of cocks, have u heard this joke? Q: WHAT'S THE WORST THING ABOUT ORAL SEX? A: THE VIEW. When I told the joke to Marty Thau, he said "I dont know what you've been looking at all these years, but I LIKE the view."
No tour or shows or anything...2busy getting ready for football season.

I LOVE the new Keith Richards autobiography. The way it's written, it's kind of like he is talking, rather than u r sitting there reading. And speaking of Keith, this picture of him was printed on a t-shirt i was wearing the day i passed out at the gym. When i came to, all the heads above me were yelling "JUST TELL US WHAT YOU TOOK! WE CANT HELP YOU IF YOU DONT TELL US WHAT YOU TOOK!" They didnt believe me when i told them i hadnt taken anything, that i was just too hungry. I didnt understand until i went back into the locker room and noticed i was wearing the shirt.
So, no tour or shows or anything...2busy reading about Keith's tours and shows.
And how YOU doin'?
