My darling, I know how much you love “her”…
You can spend all your time making money. You can spend all your love making time. If it all fell to pieces tomorrow would you still be mine?
To me, the man in Les Paul, Fender Strat or SG Double Neck is the most charming man in this world.
They made my night with “Wish You Were Here”, again. :)
I simply love him, the guy that has been hired as a session guitarist for Mr. David Blue after four-day-learning lap slide and mandolin.
Here is the story:
"David Blue," he told me, "is looking for someone to go on the road with him. David Lindley played all the string instruments on his album, but he’s on the road with Jackson Browne right now, so there might be an opening. Can you play lap slide and mandolin?”
"Sure," I lied, hardly daring to look across at Bernie, the mandolin king. "OK," Elliot said, scribbling my number on a piece of paper. "I’ll get David to give you a call."
The phone rang a couple of days later, one evening while Bernie was around having dinner with Susan and me. It was David Blue. “Come over and play for me tomorrow,” he told me. “I’ll give you the address. I’m living at Joni Mitchell’s apartment right now.”
Swallowing hard, I took my courage in both hands. “Mr. Blue?” I said.
"David," he corrected me.
"Could I possibly postpone the audition until Saturday? Only because I’m working full-time until then."
There was a pause on the phone and Bernie stared at me in astonishment. I think my old friend thought I was crazy.
"OK," David said, eventually, "Saturday it is. Three o’clock."
As I put down the telephone, Bernie said, “What are you doing? Postpone the audition to Saturday? Don’t you know what a great chance this is? Surely you can skip out of work for an hour or two.”
"I’m gonna have to take a lot more time off than that," I replied, scratching my head. "I’ve only got four days to learn how to play lap slide and mandolin."

Check out my new upload guys. I love the moment “Fingers” Felder gave Randy victory fingers right after Randy’s perfect performance and this baby-faced guy with a nod gave Don back those fingers.
God dammit! Everytime I watch ‘n’ listen to this solo I can’t control my-fucking-self!
