In the Dark

A few weeks back.  I was pulling onto a particularly dark and desolate stretch of highway late at night  as I do from time to time.  A strand of asphalt and bridges through an Appalachian mountain range between two places in the middle of nowhere.

Solitude.

Yes!  I like it!!

Then again, it can be a little disconcerting.  Few others on the road that time of night.   Oftentimes no one.   Black as pitch when there's no moon.  I'm OK though because I have halogen eyes, yes.  I'm riding the black dragon, yes........and I have countermeasures........

So.  I've never been a 'fan' of this group.  I'd rather have eaten worms than listen to them back in the day.  Trendy.  Trite. Bubblegum lyrics.

As I pulled into the abyss, this tune came over the air.  It was like seeing an old acquaintance. A soul I'd really never talked to.  Never knew. Now, decades later, I'm happy to see..... because we shared a time.

Sounds like the guitar player is having a good time.   I like the bit at about 4:12 when the rhythm guy strolls up. He's got a thing or two up his sleeve.
