I Wanna Know What Love Is



Hi. This is The Hoff, and my pet eagle, guest-blogging for Charlie Whatever-his-name-is. Check out this discussion of power ballads at the blog of Ray Banks (my unpaid PR). Why? Because you owe it to yourselves. No one can expect to get on in life without a basic knowledge of history's most influential musical form.

And don't forget - it was ME who brought down the Berlin Wall.

Has Mad Cow Disease affected England? Or is the downside of writing gritting crime fiction in the UK? Shit, my eyes are about to explode. What, you asked about by K-Tel 80's Power Ballards CD? It melted in the car over the summer....

Watch yourself. The guy has a pet eagle. One of the many things my mad old Nan told me was "Never tease a man with a bird of prey..."

You Americans... you just don't appreciate your own. Look at Jimi Hendrix - he had to come to Europe to make his name. Then there's Chester Himes, Jim Thompson etc - all gods in Europe, underappreciated back home back home.

Same with the Hoff.

Hofftastic. If only he'd lose that jacket.

The jacket stays. The Hoff don't do tacky.

Yours,
