Tales Of Brave Ulysses

You thought the leaden winter would bring you down foever,
But you rode upon a steamer to the violence of the sun.

And the colors of the sea blind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses:

If no one knows what this song is about... it is about Odysseus an ancient god in Greek mythology. Read the book "The Odyssey" all of this stuff is in it. :)

Why would any band refuse the excellent drum play by Ginger Baker? Seriously. Have you ever seen this man play!

It's you see that all of you "baby faces" are enlightened to enjoying the music of my generation. Please, stay away from the drug scene though, it destroyed too many of my heroes.
