Getting Mellow in My Old Age
The other day I told Steve that even without their connection to ALL, Drag the River is becoming one of my favorite bands. He told me that I was getting mellow in my old age. I think he’s probably right. Yesterday I changed out the music on my MP3 player and deleted a lot of punk stuff and replaced it with Johnny Cash and ‘60s soul (Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, and Same Cooke stuff). Also the stuff that I have been really drawn to lately is acoustic and alt country stuff. I still love and listen to a lot of punk rock, but my musical moods lately keep sending me in this mellower direction.
