Here's one I wrote, 'The old biker blues':

I put me teeth in, me baby wears a bra
We're heading for the high life, the real expensive bars
Put on me vari-focals, me easy-fitting jeans
and me blue suede slip-ons coz I can't bend me knees
I hope the music's good and loud, me hearing's gone to pot
after years of riding open pipes and playing heavy rock
I got the old biker blues, me beard is going grey
but I ain't gonna slow down, I still know how to play

(followed by loud guitar solo)  *smile*

 RIP Lou Reed,
  I must've missed this, but KiwiPom, those links just tell me 'no longer available'- bugga, I'll try'n chase em up elsewhere.
That Earl Scruggs was fairly shethoot, I's a sucker for Hillbilly/bluegrass, actually saw a left handed fiddle player for the first time the other night

Brian yer right about Arlos motoSickle song- I think I always sing that to myself, but it seemed a bit cliche.
 Funny, but when i was trying to figure what colour to paint my A10, and couldn't decide between the blue or the red, which is why it ended up as it is, it occurred to me that when I originally started to build it I may have had a preconceived idea in my head of what a Motor cycle should look like, seeded by Arlos song in ~'68, and when it ended up red and blue, it looked to me like it had landed on top of a police car-but no one died.....
    When he was in town here in March, I managed to have a yarn with him and told him this story, and he was a bit bemused, and showed me a picture of his Indian....he'd had a big day, but that's another(Arlo) story.....!!
Started building in about 1977/8 a on average '52 A10 -built from bits 'n pieces never resto intended -maybe 'personalised'
Have a '74 850T Moto Guzzi since '92-best thing I ever bought doesn't need a kickstart 'cos it bump starts sooooooooo(mostly) easy

Thanks Bill for bringing that one up. Completely forgot about them.
Although, if my memory serves me well, a not so happy ending...?

Triton Thrasher that was really good.

I wonder though if sad old B#*^'s with guitars is like sad old B#*^'s riding unreliable old bikes trying to relive their youth !!!!!!!

Of course none of us come into that category  *sad2*

Certainly was

Possible saved me from a heap of abuse TT, we've got the twins (grand kids - featured on the Flash in Photo comp time before last), they inform me they are learning guitar, I bought one on my retirement  with a view to learn (arthritis - what arthritis) needless to say the "practice 15 minutes a day" advice is still to start, so I say "Oh I've got an electric guitar" now after seeing that maybe it'll stay in the bag until they go home *eek*
