Pop music for the disenfranchised

Happy Birthday Dave Bridges

Happy birthday to our departed friend and musical cohort David Bridges.

I think he would have liked a poignant quote from a great 20th century author  so I’ll go for a bit of Hunter S. Thompson:

“There he goes. One of God’s own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.”

Dave confided to me that he didn’t like this more obscure song (above) that I had written and it was a rare occasion that he went momentarily mute after I told him it was partly based on him and our mutually destructive relationship.  He never told me what he thought of it after that.
