    Default I sang Panama last night

    Here in Chicago we have "Live Band Karaoke," which is just like regular karaoke but with a live backing band (see http://www.livebandkaraokechicago.com/).

    I did this several years ago -- when I used to drink -- and thought it would be fun to do again. So, stone sober, I elected to do Panama.

    I was only mildly embarrassed when I looked at the lyrics sheet and realized that I'd been singing one of the lines incorrectly ... since 1984.

    "She's runnin', I'm flyin'
    Right behind in the rearview mirror now"

    had been sung by me as

    "She's runnin', I'm flyin'
    Right behind her, we're real mean now."

    And I call myself a Van Halen fan...

    Still, it was fun.

    I think karaoke would lose the bad rap it gets if there were more opportunities to sing with a live band.

    That's just simply an ass-kicking idea to be able to belt out Halen, Zep, Priest....

    Nah Chris, what would be "ASS KICKING", is that YOU will be able to belt out Halen, Zep and Priest, next year at TLW.

    Practice up, little drummer boy!!!!
