Campfire Jammin'

September 23, 2016
   For some time now I have been jammin' on campfire light.  Not easy to do and I'm still struggling with the dynamic.

Daily Whip Out: "Campfire Jammin' #1"

Daily Whip Out: "Campfire Jammin' #2"

   My good friend Johnny D, is doing a CD of a little known Arizona cowboy singer named Romaine "Romy" Loudermilk who sang around the Southwest in the twenties and thirties. Johnny found some of his early performances on tape and has preserved them for posterity. He offered True West the opportunity to give them as gifts to new subscribers and we jumped at the chance. This morning I took another swing at the concept. 

Daily Whip Out: "Campfire Sketch for Johnny D's Romy Project"

But, of course, as I'm working on the final, I came up with an entirely different name for the painting:

Daily Whip Out: 
"The Boys Were Not Quite Sure What to Make of Ernie's
Letter Perfect Intro to Led Zeppelin's 'Communication Breakdown.'"

   I doubt that Johnny will use this, but I do know he will appreciate the humor.

"In the days of my youth I was told what it's like to be a man. . ."
—Led Zeppelin, "Communication Breakdown"

  1. The lyrics you have poste: ""In the days of my youth I was told what it's like to be a man. . ." are for the song "Good times bad times" of Led Zeppelin 1. The Lyrics first two lines for Communication Breakdown are: "Hey, girl, stop what you're doing! Hey, girl, you'll drive me to ruin". i always kind of believed that Communication Breakdown was one of the early punk songs since it was released in 1969.

    I love Led Zeppelin; imagine how many more great songs they could have come up with.
