Hard to believe but 30 years ago this summer I was heading off to college with my great hair.
To celebrate in my class this morning I used my favorite climbing song; Strangle Hold (live version) from Ted Nugent. 8 min+ at 74 RPM.
I asked the class to visualize sitting in a smoke filled (don't ask what kind) basement in 1979, listening to this record for the first time and knowing that 30 years later you would be climbing with it in a Indoor Cycling class.
I didn't make any of previous reunions....I wonder how my old girlfriends look?

Nice one. This is one of the great pieces of axe music of all time. I’m going to track down this live version. We’ve just opened a brand new three tiers studio in Melbourne (Australia) with 50 Keiser M3s (room for 20 more), darkened room, 10 quality ceiling speakers and a massive sub. The Nuge and I prepare to rock.
Btw, as for your reunion, I’m betting you’ll find that you may have a little less on top, but they have a little more around the middle. Prepare for disappointment.
You were exactly right, although my Sr. prom date was looking pretty good 😉
