            We’re all goofy looking/ugly bastards, but most of us don’t hide behind makeup. Those Pretty Women do and most know what they look like without it. That’s why they came up with this matrimony shit where you can only be with that particular one from now on and have to give them half of everything you own when you split with that shiny new toy. No Man I roll with came up with anything quite so insidious.

            • Preach it…we’re just big dumb animals…I spent a year and a half on offense to land my wife and more than a couple decades on defense trying my hand at ASSet protection. I guess there are alternatives for some…since it’s St. Patrick’s day you could put an Irish spin on it Ryan Fitzpatrick/ Patrick Fitzryan

              For me, just give me green beer and red liquor and I’d toast “To the nights we’ll never remember, with the friends we’ll never forget!”

                If it wasn’t for those ladies some of the boys would be scrapping over caves like hermit crabs fighting for shells or we’d be living in holes in the side of hills, running around barefooted like Hobbits. Got Cowdog would probably shave his feet and paint ’em Red with a Nike swoosh. That boy likes his tyte ass kickz.
                My fallen Baptofacist ass will have a drink in celebration of St. Patrick. Certainly not as many as back in the day…

        Yeah, that goofy looking fucker scored with Julia Roberts. Chalk one up for all us goofy looking, curly haired, baritone assholes.

    For my money, Rollin’ By on the Number 2 Live Dinner is his best, and that entire album is pure gold.

      Saw him in Atlanta the day after we lost the SECCG. He’s rolling from one tour right into the next. Rough.

        Yeah, well, this is it. After the shows at Floores in September he ain’t touring anymore. That’s why I’m going to both the Athens and Atlanta shows. Might try to get to Greenville, too.

    • Hope you enjoyed the slopes. Snow a little thin back in January. If you caught the afternoon outdoor act at the Ritz, that’s my diehard gator buddy from Hilton Head whom we enjoyed giving sh*t to as always but he can dish it out too.

      • He was still playing and wearing that damn gator crap. Snow was excellent. Keen closed with “I’m gonna cross that river “ sung a capella. I guess this is it

          Saw “The gator at da Ritz” a few years ago three days in a row after last run. Traded several barbs and bought him some drinks. Baby that guy is about as hard core gator as it gets but still fun and easy to listen to!

  5. Wife and I saw him at GA Theater a few years ago. Walking there before show started, saw REK emerge from tour bus in sweats, tshirt and ball cap heading over to Little Italy’s for a slice. What a legend!

    I want to like REK. In another life, I’m sure I would. But Q106, and more specifically, John Boy ruined it for me. Every time I hear his voice all I can think about is Christmas and “the family”. That was my introduction to Keen and they wore it out. Ugh.

      I hear ya, Sweet D. I used to switch Rock stations between the ATL market and Anderson, SC except the mornings when 101 would broadcast The John Boy & Billy Show. I remember “those goobers from Charlotte” polluting the airwaves in Atlanta. Just not a fan. I would occasionally listen to that old curmudgeon Robert D. Raiford.

  10. We’re gonna see him in Atlanta. I’m so looking forward to 420 Fest this year. One of the best lineups I’ve ever seen. Up there with the best at JazzFest, Bonnaroo, Wannee etc.

    Front Porch Song, Road Goes on Forever, Armadillo Jackal, his Terry Allen covers… This is going to be a great show.

  12. I’m 63 years old and while I’ve heard of his name I did not know the music of Mr Keen.. Having heard it now for the first time it seems to me it must be an acquired taste. He has the vocal qualities of Bob Dylan which is to say not much. His musicianship or rather that genre of music is not appealing to me. Thank you for the sample Senator but I’ll pass.

    Well that’s a bummer. But, hey, it’s said that all good things come to an end. This is just another example.

    Definitely seeing him in Atlanta, though. And I’ll be hootin’ and hollerin’.
