ring of fire

Reading this headline I wondered what fast, funny, and rude response reader HT would come up with. He's so quick with his quips.
And speaking of quick quips, The Trip is a real must-see. It's gorgeously shot, it has alot going for it.
No tours or shows or anything...2busy hitting it sideways just like sister rays says.

Leave a message with the girl at the front desk if you'd like a new copy sent to u.

band girl

I've always been Bruce and Rich's band girl, proudly serving since the mid-70s.
Bruce is here today with Rich in the recording studio at hb headquarters;i'm upstairs totally plotzing

So we'll break for green tea and sweet stuff in awhile, then later this afternoon we'll have a lunch break 2gether then the guys will get back 2 work. Wish we didnt have to take Bruce back to the City afterward's so great having him around.

there aint a woman that comes close 2u

I couldnt sleep the other night because ANGIE was playing in my head over and over. I could hear every part just as clearly as if the song had been playing from speakers in the room. I laid there trying 2 determine who the piano player was. The piano sounded extra-beautiful, like if u were tripping, u would think there was maybe a deep meaning to it, or some hidden secret message that could heal the world.

hot links

It's hot on the hb today. And speaking of hot, check this out. NON TOUR readers may recall ol' ACC talking about being in Michigan during the Stooges years, and what those early shows were like. These pix capture all that perfectly. Thanks to HT for link.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy practicing.

Rusty never sleeps

Can u see a dog in the rust? I used to do yoga with a real dog but these days, Rusty is my yoga dog. I see him plain as day, but not everyone does. His front legs r so cute and i like the white stripe between his eyes and the way his head is tilted.

nancy kravitz enter and sign in please

Hello. Mister Nancy stopped by NON TOUR's Sausalito headquarters on the way to a bass-player audition at Proof Lab. I sort of even hate 2 tell u what happened it's kind of sad, but at the same time it was also kind of funny.
So, as we r getting out of my car I say "Nancy, maybe it's better the guy doesnt see me, know what i mean?" She says, "oh yeah, u mean the age thing?" Yeah, the age thing. So we decided I'd help her carry her gtr and stuff only part way to the door. Because the band is you know, like young guys. "Oh, is that your mom who dropped you off?"
But b4 i could set her amp down and beat it, the guy came out and saw us standing there in the parking lot. Nancy says to me, "Dude, uh, he sees us." So the guy walked over to us and started to introduce himself, but Nancy answered a call right as he was putting his hand out to shake hands. So 2 be polite i chatted a bit with him but finally i said goodbye and got in my car. As i was driving away, i looked back but couldnt see if she was still on the phone or not. Mister Nancy: To Know Her Is To Love Her.

Hello. Here's a funky fresh new t-shirt from the Dear Rich blog. To order yours, click here. (Dear Rich feels apologetic about the high price which was set by Cafe Press.)
And speaking of t-shirts, i ordered a t for Pinky's birthday with this image on the front, but it was way too small so i'll have to use it for my own self.
Have u seen TO DIE LIKE A MAN? Wow. (Even tho a bit on the long side that's what she said.)
No tour or shows or anything...2busy burning calories.

Rochelle Anixter, ACC's former co-worker, would say "the kitchen is closed" as soon as she had washed the dinner dishes and put them away, and the kitchen would be off-limits to her family for the rest of the night. That wouldnt work around here;dinner is the gateway meal of the evening.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy pigging out.

nothing about steve albini

I only mention his name in order to keep my numbers up, after R told me that whenever i blog about ol' Steve my stats skyrocket. Hey, i need all the help i can get. And i need all the love i can get. (read the comments, so cute and funny.) Some of my best times as an audience member (not counting u-know-who of course) were at Sisters shows except for one in Sam Fram when i took some E and felt very very strange and not in a good way. I had to keep my head on the table and my eyes closed the entire show. Other than that, it was a great night ha ha. Later, i found out that u should never take E if u've had spinal meningitis which may explain why i felt so weird during the show. I was with HT and Mary Gross, who wore a black rubber dress for the occasion and i remember HT really appreciating that dress.
