    More from Hunter S. Thompson

    “Music has always been a matter of Energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel. I have always needed Fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio.”

    This quote is from a personal experience, and may be funny or interesting only to me, but here goes:
    Several years ago I went into a local drinking establishment (which featured live music on weekends) and inquired as to whether they would be interested in having me come in with my acoustic guitar some "weekday" around 5:30 or so, just to play instrumental selections for an hour or so, totally unplugged, for the people who stopped by after work to have a drink. I offered to do the first appearance without compensation, just to see how it went. I emphasized that there would be no vocals, no amp, no P.A., just me and my guitar and perhaps a chair, all tucked unobtrusively into a corner. The manager said he'd give it some thought; so, a few days later, one of his bartenders called me and said that the manager wanted to let me know that he appreciated my inquiry, but that................. "We're not set up for that."

    I thought of a couple more that my brother used to say:

    Cheap people:

    he’d squeeze a nickel until the buffalo ****.

    He’s tighter than a fly’s @$$ stretched across a washboard.

    About something nasty:

    That would gag a maggot.

    That would drive a maggot off a guy wagon.

    lowlifes:

    He’s lower than a snake’s belly in a wagon rut.

    he’s lower than whale ****.

    Let us be kind one to another, for most of us are fighting a hard battle. Ian McLaren, sometime in the 1890's I believe, is the sig line I use on Talkbass.com :)

    "I'd rather be lucky than smart" was something an old friend said every time something worked out for him. Not sure it was a Kevin B. original but I like the self-deprecating angle.
