If I have the money and the time for a holiday, I may have to make this coincide with my return to the D. Tell Greg I'll let him know when suits me.

gories are so reuniting.

from ben's latest blog entry:

Mick Collins had told me before that the Gories had all agreed that they would reunite if presented with the chance of backing Bo Diddley. Mick was the first person I called when I'd heard Bo died and I sadly commented that it seemed like they wouldn't get back together now. But after thinking about it for a second, it was clear. With Bo Diddley gone, the world need the Gories now more than ever. Hopefully, if any good can come with his passing, it will be the much-needed reunion of the Gories.

Wow, you'd think playing in his band and all, he could keep Collins' dick out of his mouth. Don't get me wrong, it's great it's happening, but "With Bo Diddley gone, the world need the Gories now more than ever"......Christ.

On reading the blog entry, wow, just, fuck, I shouldn't have read that blog, I used to just not care much for him.

There's now just an utter void on the Mantle of Rock Importance in which he was the only one who mattered. You can have your Chuck Berry, your Little Richard, your Elvis or Jerry Lee Lewis…Bo Diddley seems like the only one worth a shit in that whole pile. Elvis never wrote a song in his life, Jerry Lee and Chuck got caught up in tawdry sex affairs back in the good ole' days when that was enough to kill a career and Penniman went and found the Lord at a time when the world needed him the most.

It's a shame the tool remembered he wrote it.



But on the brighter side of reunions, with this, plus the Mummies show that happened and their show coming up in Spain, I pray for Supercharger, or maybe Fireworks, daamn.

Word on the street is that the Supercharger threesome has been practicing for supposed upcoming shows. I would pee my pants in excitement if I witnessed that.

I think the real question is whether they'll practice or if they'll try to purposely be bad like when they started, haha.

Ben wrote that Bo Diddley tribute for my local, Lansing printed zine, in late May, early June or so.
Before the Gories/Oblivians Psycho Circus Tour! was planned.

we know he wrote it months ago, but i think the key to it is when introducing it he says, "Note: it seems like I may have predicted the future on this one." as if to say he accidentally predicted a gories reunion.

This is so crazy, I can't believe that I just might be able to see this band.
