It's Not Easy Loving A Genius
My old friend, bandmate and fellow Roy Wood worshipper sent me this video yesterday. I just don't know what to make of it. There are so many amazing things about it---the melody of the bridge, the un-Move-like chord changes, Roy's solo--- and then there are just as many things that make me cringe, like...just about everything else. I mean, this guy wrote "Beautiful Daughter" and "Curly" and "I Can Hear The Grass Grow" and "Dear Elaine" and "California Man," for Pete's sake, and then, with the same intensity and no irony whatsoever, tries to pass off bad lounge music as something to be taken seriously...and we take it seriously.
Guy's a genius.
