Boys n’ Men

Well, still achy,but not breaky, and listening to music.
I received a gift of this album. There are some damn fine tunes on it! (and a wee bit of embarrassing shit)
Now, I’ve been a long time defender of Mr Rod. His early stuff is simply stunning and he’s done some decent stuff since then. Truth may easily have made the Jeff Beck Group as successful as Led Zeppelin in a parallel universe and there are many many bits of Rod’s solo stuff that I find I’ve absorbed the words and chords for by osmosis.
But why the hell did he cover Tom Traubert’s Blues? He sounds like a wee boy compared to Mr Waits!
A man should know his limitations. (Come on guys, who’s going to be the first to cry………Pot! Kettle!)
