Dear Me: A Letter to Woodstock at 16

I have been a fan of OutQ radio on Sirius for a number of years, I especially like Derek & Romaine and listen to them on my long ride home.  A few days ago they had a guest on author Joseph Galliano who wrote a book called Dear Me: Letters to my Sixteen Year Old Self and Dear Me: More Letters to My Sixteen Year Old Self.  In this book he asked famous people to write and submit to him letters they have written to their sixteen year old selves.  The concept is brilliant, kind of in the vain if I knew then what I know now what would I change.  I have not read the book yet it is on my wish list, but the idea of what you would tell your sixteen year old self is amazing and cathartic.  So I decide to challenge myself to this task here is my letter and picture of myself at sixteen.  I challenge you to do the same and if you do leave a comment so I can find out what you had to say.

E is for Echo and the Bunnymen

Sorry so late getting this up but with Labor Day events with the in-laws I am a bit behind.  I first heard Echo and the Bunnymen while staying at my friends house, he was a great influence in my musical taste introducing me to more British music along with underground acts of the 80's.  It was due to him that I first heard the Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedy's and Echo he was one of the reasons during Junior High I wore a shirt with cockroaches all over it (screen painted) black hammer pants, red bowling shoes, army jacket and shaved the side of my head. Punk and alternative music was my choice during that decade and Echo was just one of the bands that I adored. They had a Gothic overtone for a rebellious youth it was perfect music for the mood.  In 1984 I got to see them live back in the day I was notorious for winning concert tickets off the radio most of the concert I saw was because I won the tickets either for answering trivia questions or just being the lucky caller.  Of cours…
