still a rocker i am

i came across the 27th Annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony over at HBO so instead of going to sleep because i have work tonight, i ended up watching it.

i'm glad i did.

they recently inducted the Red Hot Chili Peppers to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and that made me really happy.  i know that aside from BloodSugarSexMagik  (where Under the Bridge and Give It Away - my late Dad's favorite, came from) and their more recent albums, i'm not exactly that hardcore a fan as the other people i know, but i do follow their music and i appreciate it.

i've always had this thing for guitarists and i noticed (because i haven't been paying attention for a while) that John Frusciante has left the band again, although he's still sober and there is no bad blood between him and the other band members and he has been replaced by his friend and frequent collaborator Josh Klinghoffer.  without comparing, since i am not in the position to say who is a better guitarist, as it is all about the music, i just have to say, that i have fallen in love with Josh :)

look at that nose

yep, i do tend to gravitate towards attractive, talented men like that.

anyhow, i digress.  after watching the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, i realized how much i love the music and no matter how old i get, i will always be drawn to it and grateful to the people who do what they can to share their God-given talents to energize that industry.

and of course, because rockers are always hot.
