For one thing for giving me a truly lovely interruption to my nap yesterday. Amy called me before she had to go to work (at 8:45am on a Saturday, for Pete’s sake!) yesterday and chatted with me for quite a while on her dime, just because. Now that’s a cool fricken’ sister! But I’ve also got to thank her (and as publicly as possible) because she gave me a really groovy Christmas present! For the second year in a row, she has forked over the cash for truly amazing tickets to see Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers play on New Year’s Eve. Last year it was in Tucson and we “upgraded” our seats to sit in the VIP section (resulting in handshakes from Roger as they left the stage). This year it’ll be at the Celebrity Theater, and common rumor has it that Amy managed to get us FRONT ROW SEATS!!!. Just a little bit excited. So excited, in fact, that I’m even somewhat in the Christmas spirit . . . and you guys know how unusual that is! And so, to put you all in the same mood, I would like to direct you here where you can download Roger and the Gang playing “Feliz Navidad” (though I would avoid Roger’s suggestion of putting Ta-kill-ya in the Egg Nog. Just my own personal opinion). To save the mp3 to your computer, just right click on the link and select “Save This Link As . . .” (if on Firefox) or “Save Target As” (if on IE).
Have a great Sunday everyone, and I’ll speak to you soon!
“I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart!”
~Jose Feliciano (and Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers) – “Feliz Navidad”
“Alright, put the tequila in the eggnog, pick up the guitar, and keep rockin’!”
~Roger Clyne – “Feliz Navidad”
