as i was catching the end of ringo starr's concert at nautica pavilion from my apartment's deck tuesday night i got to thinking about exactly how long he's been doing what he's doing being a rock star and all.
i mean, he just turned 70!
i wonder how many times he's played a hard days night or love me do?
which got me thinking more (scary, i know)... he's been lucky enough to work/tour/etc on a ridiculously large music catalog - he's got variety at least.
but what if you were vanilla ice?
or the proclaimers?
or dexy's midnight runners?
how many times has rick springfield sang jessie's girl?
one would think it would be repetitive and monotonous right?
but then again so is working for 35 years on a factory assembly line inserting tab A into slot B.
and so is compiling endless TPS reports till your eyes bleed, fyi.
so what's worse? for me, a life filled of mundane paperwork.
at least having a one hit wonder makes you a rockstar which in turn brings groupies.
i'm sure ringo picked up some hot tail at shooters post show...
