    A singing cowboy named Rex O'Herlihan who roamed the west. He didn't have an Astro Van, but a very nice well organized wagon containing all his guitars and a rack of Skully Shirts. I think Cliff is the modern day version of Rex, without the narcotic root.

    What do you guys think?

    That narcotic root may come in handy.
    Might be wise to hang onto it for a bit just in case.

    There's 2 things my wife absolutely hates...1) untucked shirts and 2) fat guys who wear their pants under their bellies instead of around their waist. Guess what guys, you're fat and wearing 40s under your belly instead of 50s around your waste doesn't make you look thinner :thumbsup:

    Thank concluded RobBottom's PSA for today.

    On the plus side -
    Not a bad comparison, to look like a young Tom Berenger.
    On the minus side -
    I bet Berenger would like to purge that atrocity from his IMDB page.
    Also, I find it hard to believe Cliff would sing a song that lame (or sing it so lamely.)

    You are totally correct. I just got a kick out of the rack of Skully shirts and guitars packed in his wagon. No offence intended towards anyone, especially Cliff.

    "Mustang Sally, you gotta rock like a wagon wheel. Mustang Sally, now babay, take the stairway to free bird..." our singer forgot the lyrics to MS but made it work.

    Ha! The same thing happened to me last night. How does one forget the first line of "Mustang Sally"? Well, I did. So I sang "Left a good job in the city..." Then all the words came back to me. It was magical. We were at Disneyland after all. ;)

    "Mustang Sally" was on the set list because we were playing our Cars Land show. We do a few cool songs from the movies, but MS isn't one of them. :p

    Thank you for your indulgence,

  14. Not just you. Heck, I have those moments most times that I get corralled into singing MS

    Just saying man. You're not alone.
