I Think I Know That Guy

DaGoddess @ 06:05

Ran into an old blues pal last night at — get this — Hooters.

So, I sat down in the booth while Buster went to comb his hair. I looked over at the bar (we’d almost sat right there!) and this guy looked awfully familiar, except he had more hair than I remembered. I kept trying to imagine my friend with hair. I kept looking. It got to the point where I was pretty sure someone was gonna tell me, “if you keep staring at me like that, you’ll have to buy me flowers.” I wasn’t staring to be rude, I was staring because I thought I knew the guy. Finally, I asked Buster if I should just go say hello…knowing full well I would go do it anyway. I mean, I figured if I was wrong, no big deal, right? And so I got up, walked over, and said hello. Sure as shit, it was him.

Two minutes later, I’m being introduced to the guy responsible for getting my friend his record deal, to the guys in the band, to just about everyone in the whole place. I was treated like a long lost friend. It was just so cool. Better still, he lives here part time and is willing to sit for some photos for me. And we should be doing an interview as well — it’ll likely be better than the first one we did years ago in a hotel room with a bunch of drunken partiers. Hey, come to think of it, that was the first time I’d met Buster…weird! (Cue Twilight Zone music)

I’ll let you know when we finally get to do this.

In the meantime, here’s my favorite song by the Stoney Curtis Band.

See? No hair in the video! Now he has hair. This is why I was confused. Plus I couldn’t see his nose ring from the angle I was at.

  2. Well it looks like you’ve cost me another $10-$15 at least. Shit-oh-dear that song rocks. Nice. Love the vibe, and the tone for sure. Reminiscent of a certain artist’s debut album, ala “Nuthin I Wouldn’t do”

  3. It looks like Las Vegas is bringing you the good opportunities you’ve been waiting for. My bro-in-law lives there, and a really good friend of mine from my army days lives there as well. Hopefully we can meet up if I ever get to make another trip up there.

    Any plans to make it back to Phoenix anytime soon?

  8. Buster’s “comb his hair” is code for hitting the restroom. But actually, he does have hair…on his face! You should see the goatee. It’s gettin’ long!

  9. …um…I was one of those “partiers” that was in the room during the interview! That was a fun week!

    Miss you, don’t hate you!

  10. I know! So many memories, Tara. In fact, Buster and I were just talking about you tonight. Actually, you’ve come up in conversation a few times.

    I miss you so much, too! Wish you were here. Really.

    How are you??
