Number one. Something on the mind of us all.
Sometimes we’re the hammer, sometimes we’re the nail. I’m often reminded of those words when life becomes frustrating. We’ve all been there, for a million different reasons too. No matter what it is – perhaps just this sunless winter weather we’ve been having. Whatever it is – you got the whatever you got blues! The Whatever You Got Blues. I got the remedy in the Fuzz Factory.
Here’s the prescription – the playlist. Dig it? Like it.
