Music Monday - High Cost of Lovin'

Please SHARE #MusicMonday with lyrics with your friends and get Monday rockin' in the right direction, everybody!  #MusicChangesLives

Prices getting higher,

Every day.

When it comes to good lovin',

It's the same old way.

High Cost of Love,

Getting higher everyday.

Seems the less I get,

The more I have to pay.

 

Came home with the groceries,

Said you need some more.

Gave you my last two dollars,

Said you need three or four.

High Cost of Love,

Getting higher everyday.

Seems the less I get,

The more I have to pay.

 

Got you a leather coat,

Said you wanted mink.

The way you spend my money you'd think you was,

Married to a bank.

High Cost of Love,

Getting higher everyday.

Seems the less I get, 

The more I have to pay.

 

Where I live,

They want to raise my rent.

Before I make a dollar,

You know it's already spent.

High Cost of Love,

Getting higher everyday.

Seems the less I get,

The more I have to pay.

 

Seems the less I get,

The more I have to pay.

Happy Birthday, Sir Paul McCartney!

Experiencing The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show changed my life and an entire generation of musicians were born.  Their influence was immediate and long lasting.  This recording of PAPERBACK WRITER is a tribute created by myself on guitar and bass with Walter Watson adding all the vocal tracks and drums.  Photograph includes my personal collection of Beatle dolls and 1966 Epiphone Casino.  Long live the Beatles!

Most of you know that I am a Beatle collector and I went so far as to record this tribute using my 1966 Epiphone Casino for rhythm work and 1965 Gibson SG for the lead and my vintage Hofner Beatle Bass!   I had a blast recording this!  

On The Move Official Music Video

It's no secret how much I love guitars!  Call me a guitar geek, nerd,  even guitarded!  I am guilty as charged and have been admiring, collecting, and playing these little works of art for years.   Recently, I got the chance to video part of my collection as promotion for my album, Let My Guitar Do The Talking.  I jumped at the opportunity and am thrilled to share it with you.  Please enjoy and share with your guitar freak friends!

We filmed a ton of guitars in five days with two cameras trying to capture the detail of the vintage pieces.   Ultimately, all the guitars did not make the video but that just means we have a chance to do more in the future!

Throw Back Thursday!

As an artist I always want to be moving forward but I know that #TBT is fun and nostalgic for everyone so....here's a live performance of Home Again - the second song I ever wrote.  Please enjoy a little walk down memory lane.  #ThrowBackThursday 

This video was shot at The Granada Theater in 2007 with my son, Rocky II, on bass and original Lightning singer and drummer, Walter Watson.     We were just having some fun!
