So Jealous!

Just off the phone with Andrew Who-Knows... On Monday he was a guest on Jonesy's Jukebox! It's probably my age and everything, but I would have flipped the fuck out. I'm not nostalgic for 1976, the Pistols, etc., but as one who's listened to "Satellite" maybe 60 billion times, Christ, I would have stammered like a leukemia-stricken middle school chicklet at a Children's Miracle Network luncheon for Jessie McCartney... AWK was kind enough to namecheck Don Fleming and yours truly on-air; yes, we saw Sex Pistols in Atlanta in 1978, and marveled at how uncomfortable they appeared to be, how untogether their sound was, etc. Their APOCALYPTIC attitude more than compensated, and I exaggerate not one fucking whit...

Anyhow, score another goal for Andrew. Steve Jones played "Vagabond," my favorite of AWK's brace of '05 compositions... I'm sure that the more recent version (with DF co-producing) will skin everyone alive...

Best,
