Monday, December 12: A Day That Will Live in Infamy

I'm going to depart from routine here for a moment, so please bear with me. Departing from routine does not come easy for me. Routine stands as the bedrock that makes Tony Tony. Tony departing from routine constitutes an oxymoron akin to a "retarded poodle" or a "worthless single-malt scotch".

Finally, a caveat to anyone who reads this: It's not going to be pretty. (Note to parents of small children: Swearing alert!)

I hadn't intended to post today -- never any decent rock shows on Mondays, anyway. And besides, I was feeling low. Figured I'd spend a quiet evening with the dogs and Michael McDonald's The Ultimate Collection, a topnotch CD from the folks at Rhino (who, I might add, are among the top 3% of record companies -- which is to say they're the solid, reliable Mike Matheny of record companies, as opposed to, say, the nonpareil Carlton Fisk of record companies).

I could listen to "I Keep Forgettin' (Every Time You're Near)" every single day for the rest of my life and never tire of it. The man's a genius. But by Track 12 ("It Keeps You Runnin'"), I just couldn't take it anymore.

Matt Morris -- my Matt Morris -- a San Francisco Giant? Fuckety fuck fuck fuck fuck!

Alright. That's over and done with. Time to "turn the page". Tomorrow night: Ray Manzarek and Robbie Krieger's Riders on the Storm rock the Fillmore. You know where I'll be.

I remember one time back in the 1970s I saw the Doobie Brothers at the Kiel Opera House. One thing I noticed is what a great utility man McDonald is. He's got the pipes, yes indeedy, but he can harmonize, too. Remember, fellas, that one of the Doobies' best songs, "Black Water," didn't even feature McDonald on lead vocals. He was the harmony and piano man.

Here's an interesting tidbit: McDonald, Bruce Cole of the Screamin' Mee Mees and David Surkamp of Pavlov's Dog all grew up in the same north side subdivision. How's that for some drinking water!

McDonald. A hometowner from Ferguson. Let's drink a round of Bud for my friends in Ferguson.

Fowwwelll!! I'm pretty sure the pavlov dog guys were all parkway and ladue grad, you backstabbing schmuck. Rooney indeed.

Also, Michael McDonald didn't join the Doobs til after his stint as a Steely Dan backup singer -- well after "Black Water" came out. Stick to booze and baseball and leave the music commentary to more smarter guys like the skipper, ya doooochebag.
