I remember hanging at his place, tripping. He'd always play that "Lemon Teakettle" record or whatever it's called.
Anyway so we're just there hanging out: me, Sherm, Richard Nixon, Billy (aka 'Billy'), some of the local gang from the sand bar and a few girls we picked up on the strip. One of the girls had a baby and I recall Sherm saying that he could "rip the arms off a monkey and it wouldn't even feel it" and he was kinda repeating it over and over, like it had become a mantra for him. All the while he's staring at this baby and I was starting to feel nervous because Sherm's done some pretty wild things in his time and you could never be sure what sort of thing might trip his wires.
By now, the mantra had reached a fever pitch and he suddenly stood up and shouted "That's it! I can't take another second of this!", ran to the kitchen and returned with one of the sharpest and scariest-looking bowie knives I'd ever had the misfortune to be in proximity to. Some of us were standing up, backing away and saying "Easy Sherm."
Quick as lightning he turns around, grabs a watermelon and in about 10 minutes has carved up a beautiful Tibetan-style mountain monastery scene into the top of said melon.
Well, I can't say we weren't impressed and relieved. We sat around enjoying the delicate artwork and complimenting a rather satisfied looking Sherm when, with a big grin, he calmly stood up, brushed off his hands and said "Now where's that monkey?"

Back in the 70s, I was about 8 years old, and man I loved me some Jeffersons.

One day my parents and I were driving around, and some guy walked in front of our car and almost got creamed. As we passed him, I yelled out the window, "WATCH WHERE YOU'RE GOING, HONKEY!"

My mom was horrified and gasped, "Gil! You don't call people that!"

Genuinely confused, I answered her, "Why not, Mom? George Jefferson does it all the time."

She had no answer to that.

Iknhaton: Can someone explain all the references to Supper's Ready at the beginning of the thread? Was Willow Farm a real place in the 70's?

With that name....

I'm pretty sure Acid and Prog Rock are like Peanut Butter and Jelly, Coffe and Cigarettes, Hookers and Blow, one doesn't always have to involve the other, but it's oh so wonderful when it does. So the guy had his hidden hit stashed away for a rainy day, so what? It's a shame he didn't get one more ride before the end.

/Joe Satriani , Lucy, and i have had some fun times.
