cougars at the cougar show
it was a big night out for a lot of the 'older' set - me included. the cougar show was riddled with many of the grads from the classes of 1980 - 1992, with a few younger and older thrown in for good measure.
little johnny cougar has kept himself fresh by moving forward with his music rather than relying on just churning out live carbon copy versions of his hits - and there are a ton of them. he's re-worked a lot of the older 'uh-huh', 'scarecrow' and 'lonesome jubilee' era hits into stripped own roots rock numbers ans they sound like new songs many of them. some of the new numbers - which have a slight screamin' jay hawkins/jeffery lee pierce feel to them left me cold after a while but good to see him branching out.
all in all 'he who can not be named on the blog' and i had a nice night out - as did the fawnz and her main man dave as they were there to rock out as well.
the view from my seat when everyone decided to get up and shake their moneymakers.
