Dr. Hook update continued

Well, according to dr.hook com ,
There is still an incarnation of the group touring....

Each of Dr. Hook’s 2 co-front-men Dennis Locorriere and Ray Sawyer currently still tour, though separately. Both play quite extensively overseas (mostly Europe), as Dr. Hook is still more popular outside the US. Each does a set of predominantly Hook classics, as per audience demand. Both tour with at least one former member of the Dr. Hook band, in their current band. Billy Francis playing with Ray, and Rod Smarr with Dennis. Each performs some hits that the other sang on the original recordings. Since Dennis did sing on MORE of the band's hits, Ray "covers" more "Dennis" songs.
just remember getting blasted and listening to dr. hook...what a time that used to be....

Sylvia's mother says "Sylvia's busy"
"Too busy to come to the phone"
Sylvia's mother says "Sylvia's tryin'"
"To start a new life of her own"
Sylvia's mother says "Sylvia's happy"
"So why don't you leave her alone?"

And the operator says "40 cents more for the next 3 minutes"
Ple-ease Mrs. Avery, I just gotta talk to her
I'll only keep her a while
Please Mrs. Avery, I just wanna tell 'er goodbye

Sylvia's mother says "Sylvia's packin'"
"She's gonna be leavin' today"
Sylvia's mother says "Sylvia's marryin' "
"A fella down Galveston way"
Sylvia's mother says "Please don't say nothin'"
"To make her start cryin' and stay"


Sylvia's mother says "Sylvia's hurryin' "
"She's catchin' the nine o'clock train"
Sylvia's mother says "Take your umbrella"
"cause Sylvie, it's startin' to rain"
And Sylvia's mother says "thank you for callin'"
"And, sir, won't you call back again?"


Tell her goodbye

Tell her goodbye

Whatever Happened to: Dr. Hook?

So...Whatever happened to 1970's music sensation Dr. Hook? I decided to investigate....

As I listened to "Sylvia's Mother" with my Wife and 6 year old son, i couldn't help but think of the nights back in the mid to late 1980's, an innocent time in my life, as I look back.

Man, what a time i had back then.Rock and Roll Parties till dawn, and a little too much inconsideration of my surroundings,and the ones closest to me.Tim, Dean, Ray, Daniel, Stephanie, Wenndy, Mike, and the others from Bradley Drive.....The Evil on Queen Street, for those DIO Fans out there.That whole damn street hasn't been the same since, but I'll get into that later in this blog.
If only I knew that Stephanie, Wenndy, and her whole family were into the dark arts, I could have probably saved myself a lot of trouble....but I bit hook line and sinker....after all i was only 19 years old, and she looked so sweet in those oh so tight shorts.....if only i would have known the trouble in store for me...I was to lose everything I had, yet gain so much more than I ever could have imagined...anyway this is a blog, so i'm blogging......
