Hoyt Axton..

Contemplating mankind's purpose turns people like me into pseudo-philosophers. I feel that life is simply a matter of one foot in front of the other and down the road we go ... This music is my wish of life abundant and bright, full of joy to you and those for whom you care.

Well, I am making a small come-back. I was inspired by a songwriter, Hoyt Axton. He had penned some of the most legendary songs of the Rock band, Steppenwolf. There is this one song called "Snowblind Friend"...

You say it was this morning when you last saw your good friend
Lyin' on the pavement with a misery on his brain
Stoned on some new potion he found upon the wall
Of some unholy bathroom in some ungodly hall
He only had a dollar to live on 'til next Monday
But he spent it on some comfort for his mind
Did you say you think he's blind?

Someone should call his parents, a sister or a brother
And they'll come to take him back home on a bus
But he'll always be a problem to his poor and puzzled mother
Yeah he'll always be another one of us
He said he wanted Heaven but prayin' was too slow
So he bought a one way ticket on an airline made of snow
Did you say you saw your good friend flyin' low?
Flyin' low
Dyin' slow

Thats an amazing song, even better when listened to...

Till I am inspired again...

  1. Good to see that you are back. Yeah there are very very few people who sing of the lows when you really wanna go high.
