Da Tech Guy gets it

"What else is a private Tropical Island for?"

Exactly. Any guy who buys his own private tropical island is obviously just trying to score. You've got to figure Ricardo Montalban didn't spent too many nights alone. I bet even Herve Villechaize was a pretty popular dude.

Same thing with a sports car or a yacht. I don't care if the guy's 93 years old. If he's driving a Maserati, you know he's looking for some action.

Not that this kind of carnal motivation can't be sublimated so as to be socially beneficial. Had it not been for the trying-to-score factor, Keith Richards would have been just another English drug addict instead of a world-famous rock guitarist.

Come to think of it, the entire "British invasion" was just a bunch of guys with bad teeth trying to score. Did you ever take a close look at the guys in Gerry and the Pacemakers? The Animals? The Kinks? Without guitars, those dudes would have been completely hopeless.


  1. Aerosmith. Steven Tyler comes right out and says " was only to get the chicks"

  2. I certainly was until I strapped on my axe.

    Here's a question for all guitar players out there: what was the first song you learned to play?

    For me it was Smoke On The Water.

  3. Stacy, maybe each of your examples could have done as well by donning a speedo? Would have save a whole lot of time practicing.

    Thanks, Deuce. The mental image of Ray Davies in a Speedo just made every woman run screaming from the blogosphere.
