60s /70s singer bruno/available


hey all you bands who do the who / the doors /stepponwolf/ deep purple/ doobies /the games gang/ the beatles/ the elo/ the uriah heap / the jethro toll /bst/ cchicago/any elvis all motown music of the 60os and the kinks /the bob seger the johnny winters some allmann brothers the turtles the beach boys jan and dean the southsiside johnnyand any al green and wilson pickett and sam and dave and some fleetwood mack or even cat stevens im the best around and im in my 50s and still singen call me now im ready to get back on the stage i need awedding or show band who knows these artist ican sing the 4-tops and even smokie robinson and the 4-seasons are my groovie best if your ready then im ready so call before i change my mind to do a one man band show i play gutiar /bass drums -keys and am very good at writng songs words and musici have 10 demos available with full orchestras and strings wwith me playing all the instruments my self,.so hurry call before i just quit music all-together and sell everything and buy amotercycleand just hang out till i get aoldchick to singto me till idie.bob at###-###-####am to 9pmeveryday.thanks bobby blue s buddylovethat bruno uno guy you know thanks for reading my life. call.

These are some of my favorite artists! There’s so many here – too many to list, but let’s look at just a few:

Stepponwolf – It’s like “Walkin’ on Sunshine,” but instead you step on wolf.

The Games Gang – I love this.  Each member of the Games Gang has their own particular specialty.  They’re all feared across the west, but no one more so than Sudoku Pete.

The Jethro Toll – what you pay to drive though Alabama?

Plus, the excess of articles is amazing.  I never knew there was more than one Uriah Heap, ELO, Bob Seger, or Johnny Winters, requiring him to specify that he sings THE Uriah Heap, etc.

Also, since he’s threatening to change his mind to either a) form a one man band or b) quit music and buy a motorcycle, does that mean the most likely outcome is that the two will just average out and he’ll stick with his current plan of trying to persuade the guard to let him have something sharper than a crayon to write with?

 

Thanks, Prunella!

    The Craiglist ads trickle in
    There’s an old man who can sing it all
    From Doors to Smokie Robinson

    He says, “Son, I can sing eveything
    I’m not really sure, I may go.”
    But it’s bad how it’s spelt and I knew I might melt
    When I saw aoldchick on amotercycleand.

    I know this guy can’t be any good, ’cause he doesn’t even mention The Johnny Rivers. Yeah, that’s how I know he sucks.

    “till i get aoldchick to singto me till idie” Why would this be appealing to anyone?

      M’mckmac or Huron, one supposes. Could be Cree or Blackfoot, too.

      Probably less brass in the rhythm section; but, a lot more synchronized dance moves by the chorus–the burning in the fires part to the ululation of the women might be an interesting contrapoint.

          LoL. The “state shaped like a hand” has a lot of history, and well before knees-bent-advanicing-silly-French-types started applying French spelling and alliteration to AmerInd placenames and the like.

          Still some debate about how/whether “sioux” is actually a French alliteration of a Blackfoot word for “slave.”

      Hmm, re-reading that last line seems to suggest, that despite wanting to retire with an aol-chick, that Sparky-bob wants to “buddy love” a putative bruno of some sort.
      Which really makes me hope Sparky-bobby’s real name (not stage not CL) is Uncas, and he’s for the council fires tres tuit suite.

      Heh. I’m seeing “Butterman” as a super hero. Standing with his cape flapping in the breeze and his hands on his hips and his huge belly hanging over the top of his tights. And the whole damned outfit is yellow. Including his yellow hooker boots. And he’s wearing a lunch lady hair net. You know, to be sanitary. With the butter. And the stuff he’s buttering.

      I’m making myself feel kind of whoopsy.

    In Russia musici very good writes you.
    When I saw that word all I could think was how russian it sounded.

    And are you serious, you all don’t think Motown existed in the ’60s? My Dad listened to two types of music in the ’60s – Motown and the Philadelphia sound.

      In the “60′s” (presumably the 1960′s), assuredly.

      In the 600′s though, the 7th Century, Detroit, Michigan was a different sort of place, culturally and musically (and significantly less-well known for turning out motorized vehicles).
