Ben Edwards psychobilly part IV

Most of the Boss songs were about Parties, Partying, drinking beer, drinking whisky, smoking or brewing home brew beer. Never had a seen a performer whom I believed they had fully lived and experienced EVERY aspect of every song they were singing about. There was something disturbingly impressive and intriguing about this man. He was a great player, and excellent singer however also seemed to not care at all about how he was perceived by anyone in the room.

Cocktails and Rock tales

Classic Rock: Let it Bleed by The Rolling Stones – Jammin` – campari, gin and pomegranate juice fireball

Pub Rock: Highway to Hell by ACDC – Between the sheets – apotent mix of white run, triple sec and brandy

Grunge Rock: Houdind by The Melvins – Hedonism – pear vodka, apple and lime juice, so what ? nevermind

Psychedelica: Paranoid by Black Sabbath – Oddity N.o. 9 – cranberry and raspberry juice, vodka and Italian Tauca – far out.
