Happy Birthday, Jerry Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Hey, everyone:

Jerry Chamberlain's birthday is Friday the 25th.

Most guitar players have a story about their "Smoke On The Water" song—a guitar lick we hear that made us grab the nearest guitar player and demand that they teach us how to play it.

Well, my "Smoke On The Water" guitar lick was "I Love You Number 19" and there were many that followed. "Nearsighted Girl," "Endless Summer," "Thru The Speakers," "Memory Lane," "Little Crosses," and many others that kept me locked in my room with the stereo and a primitive guitar rig cranked to 11. Anyone looking for definitive guitar hooks, solos that are at once maniacal and melodic, and an artist's vision for what rock can do, need look no further than Mr. Jerry Parker Chamberlain.

Rock on, Jerry, and happy birthday!

Let the tribute posts begin!

Happy Birthday!

I'm not an old-timer from the early days like many around here are, so the works of yours I am most familiar with are on Motorcycle and Bibleland.

Rock On! Smile )

Yes, Jerry is going to be 71 tomorrow.

We were young and close once. 70 years go by fast...very fast. Some years faster than the other, but I think that has something to do with the rotational velocity as you get taller and your head is further from the center of the earth.

Anyway...

Jerry and I were close as children. I remember those days we spent in the barn picking hay out of each other's hair, wishing we had teeth, combing each other's back and talking about girls. Jerry liked brunettes, I liked plaid hair. My mother bought me a small, beginner guitar but it was stolen only to turn up on the early Daniel Amos albums. It was a blue tele with a bigsby...but I doubt it's worth much now...it's so old.

As we grew into our teens I lost touch with Jerry because he started dating what turned out to be a turnip. Jerry had no qualms about it though until prom, when the turnip looked horrible in a dress. Just to make it through the night, Jerry wore the dress and the turnip wore a tux. Apparently the night was a dud because, as Jerry finally figured out, the turnip was a bad conversationalist.

In college we lost touch completely. I kinded a love affair with a girl like no other...in that she was only a fantasy from an old Aldo Nova record. Jerry met Sharon and together they made music...not great music, but enough music to eventually make great music if you went through their catalog pulled out all the bad songs and put some Beatles tunes in there. But overall they were good - good to each other, good for each other and good alone when each other wasn't around.

But I digress.

Jerry can't post much now...he's in an old folks home. I think he's the cook or the janitor...someone who is highly visible and who deals out authority with a broom handle.

For me? I spent my 71st birthday (Novemeber) with a lovely lady who thought I was a spool.

I thought it was you. I have no idea who it could be but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

And by "enjoyed it" I mean I endured a spoken-word rendition orated by Ruth Buzzi, adapted from the Paul Westerberg song that was later the basis for an off Broadway play involving a wayward seaman and his love of silent movies.

Whoever it was needs to step forward and take their medicine like a proper bi-valve!

Hmmm...Chandler? Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

No...heh...no....I'm not Tim, Jerry, Terry, Ed, Marty, Dave or anyone related to DA or the various other bands they are all connected to...well, not the OBVIOUS ones anyway. I DO however have a Sheriff's badge and some fur chaps that I constantly wear without anything else. The badge hurts but the chaps are nice.

And what's wrong with clams? I have an affinity for monopods, I'll tell you that...but I can't divulge their hallucenagenic affect any more than I can explain the taste of plaid. So as Don Henley would say, "You've been out riding fences for so long now" because you are lukewarm in your faith in me. You must believe, you MUST believe.

Now...I'm off to visit some shoe stores and collect some soles.

That sounds like something Uncle Stonehill would come up with. Shocked Tongue Big Grin

No no no...I don't think I'm uncle Stonehill although I was very very upset that they didn't use the song "American Fast Food" on the soundtrack of "Super-Size Me". I felt like the song probably led to the making of the movie, or at least helped birth the idea in the writer's head. I know because that song has been around for a long time and I was listening to it back in the early 80's.

By the way, I also remember listening to Uncle Stonehill sing a song about turning 30 and then getting a phone call right before singing about his wife giving birth. It was a moving moment and made it difficult to concentrate when Jerry played his blue guitar.

"Near Sighted Girl and a Tital Wave". Wow, what an amazing song to see live. I miss that version of Daniel Amos, and I miss Jerry playing with them. It was like the Beatles before John and Paul decided to write without each other. Something greater than the whole. DA is still great mind you, even though Lennon is probably worm fodder. There's still hope though because Brian Wilson is touring again.

Last night I had clams. And oysters. If you like oysters, you MUST eat them with this concoction: a spoonful of horseradish, some ketchup, some cocktail sauce and a large dose of tabasco sauce (Louisiana hot sauce won't work). Mix it altogether and eat the seafood (peel and eat shrimp works well too). Mmmm...I love clams.
