Do you associate particular songs or bands with your friends, both current and long ago?
Maybe I’m just getting older and memories jar me like an odd textured blanket, but I find myself hearing a song and my mind just wanders to….someone.
So, first up as I’m cooking dinner is Uncle Tupelo. When I hear old school Farrar/Tweedy tunes, I instantly think of Chad Rockey (State College represent). Chad played in one of my favorite bands in the late 80’s/early 90’s at Penn State called The Pinch.
Jonesing for Soma was lucky to play with these guys a few times.
And yes Chad, there is one other band that causes me to think of your guitar playing, even 30 years later.
