Star Wars. Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumors.” The Clash’s “The Clash.” Iggy Pop’s “Lust for Life.” Annie Hall. Steely Dan’s “Aja.” Elvis eats one too many fried peanut butter and bacon sandwiches. Album and stadium rock at its apex, disco explodes on the scene, punk rock elbows its way into the mix, and rap begins to take hold. It’s 1977! And it’s a great webcomic by Byron Wilkins, who is apparently lucky to remember ANY of his life then…but what does remain of his rock band bass playin’ days shows up three times a week over on his site.
We talk about his strip, naked babes, excessive pot smoking, and in the second half, we sound like a couple of ancient fogeys as we reminisce about the days where music kicked some serious ass. Byron has some hilarious stories from his days as a bassist back in the 70s, and because he used to be a DJ, it’s a battle of the radio voiced guys!
