EARACHE MY EYE
Performed by Alice Bowie
My momma talkin’ to me tryin’ to tell me how to live
But I don’t listen to her ’cause my head is like a sieve
My daddy, he disowned me ’cause I wear my sister’s clothes
He caught me in the bathroom with a pair of pantyhose
My basketball coach, he done kicked me off the team
For wearin’ high-heel sneakers and actin’ like a queen
—— lead guitar ——
The world’s comin’ to an end, I don’t even care
As long as I can have a limo and my orange hair
And it don’t bother me if people think I’m “funny”
‘Cause I’m a big rock star and I’m makin’ lots of money
money, money, money, money, money, money
Ahhh! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…
I’m so bloody rich! Ha ha ha ha
I own apartment buildings and shopping centers! Ha ha ha ha
And I only know three chords! Ha ha ha ha

This is my Super Bowl inspired post.
My wife has been a fan of The Who for most of her life. Her brother was a little bit older and was seriously in to their music in the very early 70’s and was her introduction. Now he sometimes acts as if he doesn’t know who they are even though he was the one that took her to one of their concerts when she was probably 12 – 14 years old and there has been a love affair ever since.
She does like their music and we have seen them in concert INNUMERABLE times. In both Stadium and Arena venues.
One of the most unique was in an outdoor amphitheatre setting that was actually a Roger Daltrey solo concert. A torrential downpour let out about half way through and the crowd scattered so we moved from our medium priced seats to the UP CLOSE seats. I will say that it was a near religious experience watching him sing “Love, Reign O’er Me” while the rain came down in torrents.
The last time we saw The Who was probably in the late 90’s in Atlanta they were good but not great.
Tonight’s Super Bowl appearance was good but not great.
She disagrees with me about both of these performances.
I just think when it comes to The Who, she will always be that awestruck adolescent seeing her first major stadium show of some true Rock Legends.
Although she does question – Why is Pete Townshend so desperate for money that he licenses songs from The Who for every TV show and commercial on the air?
She’s delusional not stupid.

I’ve had the @IAMDANDC account on Twitter for 2 or 3 months now and of course the people who follow that account are varied. There have been some writers, comedy clubs (no I don’t do standup) and a wide group of miscellaneous.
Today though was the strangest and or coolest. I got followed by a band called “The Cringe” (Twitter name @thecringe). Now if they were a 70’s cover band I would understand. But they are based out of New York and record contemporary music.
After following them back, I went to their Website – www.thecringe.com and was checking them out and I knew one of the band members looked familiar. I’m thinking where do I know this guy from? So I clicked on the “about” tab on their website and started reading their bios.
One of the names ALSO seemed familiar but 1+1 was not equaling 2 yet. But I assumed the familiar name matched the familiar face. So of course I went to google and googled the name.
This guy who is their lead vocalist and one of the guitar players – IS MARRIED TO RACHAEL RAY FROM THE FOOD NETWORK!!
I knew I recognized that dude.
