>Theme Day – Bridges – #259

>Well, there are bridges and bridges…

Went to see local blues guitar hero Timo Gross the other night and we got chatting and I took some photographs – some grainy b&w mood stuff plus the set list with chord progressions and structures.

And the bridge.

Here’s some trivia:

Eric and George were co-writing a song, George sets up the structure, does some notations and starts writing the lyrics, Eric looks over his shoulder and says “Badge! [Listen]That’s a funny name for a song, George”.

“No, Eric. Bridge.It’s the bridge….”

Then in walks Ringo, three sheets in the wind from an extended session at the pub, listens to how far they’ve got, comes up with the lines about “the swans living in the park” and “before they bring the curtain down” and proceeds to fall asleep on the sofa and snore loudly.

And then there are perhaps the greatest lines in a pop song [Listen]:

My breath smells of a thousand fags
And when I’m drunk I dance like me Dad
I’ve started to dress a bit like him

Early morning when I wake up
I look like Kiss but without the make-up
And that’s a good line to take it to the bridge
The rest of the gang’s on board, too.
