As you may have noticed by my lack of response - I haven't got the energy for Gallagher. Neither to say hang on; Kylie's guitar based music since when? Nor to deal with the fallacy of the very presence of Eminem and Skin negate the root of any music genre in a subcultures particular to any race. Because, y'know, the existence of Lewis Hamilton has magically turned Formula One into an all-inclusive sport. And there will no longer be a white patriarchy in America if the Democrats win the next election. And Joan Jett and Rob Halford mean that my own genre of music can't possibly be a hetboys club. Nope.

- Which is me ranting again and I won't be able to respond to comments out of the whole lack-of-coherence thing. Uh, sorry? You can ignore me if you like.

In other news, the baker this morning asked if I'd ever heard of "Skid Row". From his tone of voice I thought he was going to say one of those obscure bands you get out nowadays. Something new and 'edgy' and really not my kind of thing. But no, 'Skid Row' it was, so we talked about GNR and Crue and Alice and Motorhead and the Runaways and... *happy sigh*

This came about because I was wearing my biker jacket instead of my winter flasher mac, and his colleague decided to tell me I looked good today. I do, this is true, but I think it's as much to do with my fantastic hat as my jacket. However, it was the jacket that caught the attention of ex-rocker guy.

"I used to like have a jacket like that," he said. "Used to be into heavy metal music?"

"Used to? I challenged.

The ensuing conversation totally distracted him from the maths of working out what to charge me, but it did make the doughnuts taste just that extra tastier.

Moments like that are cool but make me feel old. I was reading a thead the other week and some kid mentioned that a song in "Rock Band" was first time he'd ever heard of the Grateful Dead. I don't even like the Dead all that much but I still winced a bit.

Not the older Skid Row, which Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy), Gary Moore were in I take it? I still have my ticket stub from when I went to see them back in 1991 (Sebastian Bach one that is, not the oldies)...golly that is 17 years ago now!!! Am too young to have ever seen the other Skid Row play unfortunately!

Oh, now come to think I it, I remember when I went to the Skid Row concert, I went with my teenage boyfriend at the time, whose dad actually used to play in the other Skid Row band along with Phil Lynott and the other old rockers!!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I loved the way Sebastian flicked his lovely long hair!!!
