I want to share a tune from my rocker ex who's 65 and battling cancer.
Demian (aka Denny Romans) is one of my favorite ex's, my son's dad, and a 47-year friend, who has lived most of his life performing with his band in Europe but is now back in Florida and still at it -- a professional musician continuously since 1965. He's the guitarist, singer, and group leader. I think he has a lot of heart /guts / whatever we call that essential drive within us... kind and brilliant, a rare combination.
This is a cover, of course, which is something he rarely does. He has written, I don't know how many, but certainly upwards of 100 original songs, which are mostly what he plays. But I think his recent version of this is smokin', and wanted to share it with you... especially for some of us who may be feeling from time to time that we're "old and over" -- no, we're not!

"History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit, but even without being sure of 'history' it seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody understands at the time -- and which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened." (Hunter S. Thompson)

2. Thanks for sharing! Has a nice Quicksilver Messenger Service feel to it.
Best wishes to Demian to beat the cancer.
