Always hated liner notes - always hated any kinda writing about rock'n'roll
- but here I am now, with a limo waiting outside & 13 minutes to catch
in words what I think & feel about about these fine & dandy tales
my friend Clap has spun - tales of life on & off the road with a band
called okay - a band in which (just in case you didn't know, hosehead!) I
am lead singer - & in which (as the title helpfully informs you) Clap
is drummer - not the world's greatest, technically, even he'd admit to that
- but solid & deep & swingin' & truthful - & I suppose that's
what I want to say this here book is - truth-full - if I'd written it, it
would be all about high times & honeys - & Clap has gotten down that
wild stuff - but he's also told the cold truth about the things you lose along
the way, the sweet soul-damage - & I think he's done it just about as
well as it coulda been done - & believe me, I should know: I wasn't there
for most of it.
