WILD NIGHTS

Start here


Saturday Night’s alright for jammin’…get a little action in.

I see it all before me:
the days of love and torment;
the nights of rock-and-roll.
I see it all before me.
Sometimes my spirit’s empty;
don’t have the will to go on.
I wish someone would send me
energy.

Give me something.
Give me something to give.
Oh, God, give me something:
a reason to live.
My body is aching.
Don’t want sympathy.
Come on. Come and love me.
Come on. Set me free.
Set me free.

The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures.
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul.
He leadeth me through the path of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me.

Patti Smith/Easter/Privilege (Set Me Free)

On that note and with lyrics that abound, resound and rebound off  the ceiling of this soul, here’s a clip that might shake your money makers. Van just called Le’ Man Cave and said;

“Dig this Hurley, I need an acoustic rhythm backing track on ‘Wild Night’. Ronnie Montrose was only 17 when he laid down his opening riff. The kid did a good job, but I like the way you hammer that D string while playing the G. Put a little of that Irish Detroit on it. Check’s in the mail my brother.”

OK Van the Man…you got it. Strictly rhythm, I don’t make it cry or sing.

 

Technically perfect? Nope

Fun? O’ yes my friends!
