Two pairs of jeans and four t-shirts, seems just about right for twenty five shows, thirteen of which are without a day off.Two pairs of jeans and four t-shirts, seems just about right for twenty five shows, thirteen of which are without a day off. Typical Powerman 5000 stuff... The dirtier, the better. We drove from Burbank, Calfi., to Sioux City, Iowa in one shot, 30+ hours on the bus. This new bus driver must be some kind of robot, the man refuses to sleep! Not much to do but play hours and hours of Texas Hold 'Em and listen to the New York Dolls or Shooter Jennings.
Tonight is the first show of the run and the first show since the new record has been in stores. Should be interesting to see if anyone is singing along yet. During our down time we appeared on CD USA and played our new single, "Wild World" which went over well. The other band, who shall remain nameless, was forced to fake it and play along to their CD... kinda sucked for them. Chingy was there and wished us well. I'm not too sure who Chingy is, but he seemed like a nice guy. Later that week Adrian and I appeared on Playboy radio giving sex advice. I'm not certain that we helped anyone. In fact, I think we did some damage.
Looking forward to playing a real show tonight, but in the meantime, I'll be on the mini golf course playing a quick eighteen with the rest of the band.
Okay, so just got off stage and it was a rockin' good time for all. The kids were jammin' to the new tunes as well as the old. You know it's a good show when you look down from the stage and see teenage girls puking over the barricade but still managing to make it through the whole show. God Bless America and especially Iowa. Success!
Coolin' down on the bus with a bottle of red wine and Squeeze’s greatest hits and a little more New York Dolls. I hear rumors of a Wal-Mart two blocks away. Maybe if we get bored enough we’ll head on over and drag race some old-people scooters. Who said rock n' roll is dead?
Until next time...
