Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Slobs Versus Snobs

Y’know, Pig, most bands had one look. A collective aesthetic, if you will.

“I most certainly will not, you fancy-talkin’ cockknocker!”


“Heard one o’ the crew say it the other day. Thought it was funny.”

It is.

“I know!”

Seriously, man: you guys look like you’re in different bands.

“Y’gotta give the kids options f’r their eyeballs! Mebbe they get tired o’ lookin’ at College Boy over here, so they take a peek at the ol’ Pig! Switch it up ev’ry now an’ then!”

I guess.

“You guess, but I know! Done my research!”

You did research on this?

“I sure did! Asked my ol’ lady! I said, ‘Woman! How we lookin’ this evenin’?’ And she said we looked sharp!”

That sounds like research.

“If y’ can’t trust your ol’ lady, then I feel bad f’r ya!”

You never tell a lie, Pig.

“That ain’t what my ol’ lady says!”

Good one.

    If more people had Pigpen’s ethos, this place just might be a better place.

    Ever notice that after about 1972, Phil always looked old. Strangely, in some ways, he looks younger now than he has in a long time.
