Topic: And.....old guys were rocking
I flew out from UK to Denver, CO last month to get married. We stayed with my wife's uncle who I hadn't really had much contact with before. Over a drunken talk one night he mentioned how he sings occasionally with 'a bunch of mates' and when I said I played guitar he promised to fix up a session of some kind. Next night he took me over to his friend's house for what I thought was a beer and maybe a jam. This guy has a shed in his garden, full of vintage amps, guitars, drums and even a piano - an absolute music nut who only plays for fun. Another guy turned up who had lost his thumb in a work accident so couldn't lock on that well but still played like a dream. After a while, a biker guy arrived and got behind the kit.....we had a blast for about 4 hours (sorry, neighbours) and did it again next week. Worked our way through Creedence Clearwater, ZZ Top, Neil Young and some British RnB. Also at the wedding we set up a small acoustic room and played long after everyone had gone to bed..... just wanted to say thanks those guys and for the hospitality, friendship and absolute devotion to beer-drinking shown by the residents of Castle Rock, CO.
