Music Monday – Iconic Cool

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

You’re about as authentic as it gets in rock’n’roll. Is that the secret to your longevity?

I’m like my music icon, Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead. Until the day he died, he was always Lemmy. He never changed and I won’t either. I never bought into celebrity culture and that’s why I have survived.

Have an amazing week!

I'm a rock-n-roller poet who left the Big Apple for the Big Sky Desert where I've been letting it be and grooving with universal love, singing to the gods, dancing with the muses and bicycling with dreamtime messengers. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, breath, and makin' stuff.

  1. I saw the Pretenders live at a place called Happy Daze in Westchester County, NY, in the mid 1980s. Chrissie was amazing. Seven years ago, in an interview in the NY Times, there was this exchange, which I will always treasure:
    Q: “It’s been years since you last toured regularly. Do you do anything to keep your voice in shape?”
    A: “Well, I’m a rock singer. I don’t even know what keeping a voice in shape means. Voice lessons and all that are as alien to me as playing golf.”
