I can't stop laughing! What a wonderful post...
So what Rocky's playing is called a "shaker"? How apt. He DOES have an impressive CV -- all quite believable, as are his tales about the latenight drum jams with Ringo (though that bit about hearing him briefly on Revolution #9 doesn't seem like the strongest possible evidence: is there anything you CAN'T hear briefly on R#9?). & How's his eye? Too bad some of his back-woods behaviors got him into trouble. That seems to happen to so many musicians.
Oh! Just remembered that funny Otis Redding/Carla Thomas song ("Tramp" -- Maybe we could change that to "Trash"?)...
CARLA: You know what, Otis? You're COUNTRY.
OTIS/ROCKY: That's all right!
CARLA: You STRAIGHT from the Georgia Woods.
OTIS/ROCKY: That's GOOD!
But speaking of trash, you're worrying me, Christogram. I throw away a heap of stuff, including all those credit card offers. I'll bet YOU picked up the check in that bar -- but if not, did you happen to notice the name on the card Rocky used?
checked out, left in no doubt, to help with poor Rocky's revival..
