“The first time I remember being scared was when I was 5 years old and my mother dangled me over the body of baseball great Babe Ruth, who was lying in state at Yankee Stadium. She wanted me to remember that afternoon for the rest of my life, and I have, which is why I don’t go to funerals.

The next time my adrenaline started rushing like that was when my Aunt took me to a second, or third-run theater, where they were playing “The Picture Of Dorian Gray” It’s a story of a man who sells his soul to remain young, while a portrait of him grows old hidden away in a closet. I was bored watching the black and white film, until they showed horrific, but stunning inserted technicolor clips of the decaying portrait. That image kept me awake for many nights, and is probably the reason I’m cautious going into closets today.

Although I had seen movies with Bela Lugosi as Dracula on TV, I was never scared because they were in black and white and not the colors of the real world. When Hammer Films, in the UK, re-did the classics in all their bloody, technicolor horror, with believable actors, that all changed! Christopher Lee, who played in a series of Dracula Films…made me believe in Vampires! I never doubted for a minute that he could bite you and condemn you to a “life” of the undead!

One dark and stormy night in London, while I was staying with my friend, record producer Lou Reizner and his wife Pam. I’m in the kitchen writing a song with Scott English (“Bend Me, Shape Me”, “Mandy”). There’s a flash of lightning, and standing behind Scott’s chair is a frighteningly familiar face…Christopher Lee!

I must’ve turned white. Scott said, “What’s the matter man, you look like you’ve seen a ghost?” I motion for him to look behind his chair. When he sees Christopher, hovering above him, he falls to his knees and makes the sign of the cross with two spoons. Lou Reizner starts laughing, when his unfazed friend Chris looks down at Scott and says, “Nice meeting you too!”

From the forthcoming book, “I Did It For A Song”…”If You Don’t like ’60s, ’70s music, you can kiss my past!”

When one monkey tries to make it out of a barrel full of other monkeys, there are always those monkeys who will try to pull him back down. That’s “Monkey Barrelism” !

Racism, Sexism, and Ageism are certainly issues in the race to the White House, but “Monkey Barrelism” is the most dangerous threat to our political system and to the American way of life.

Now that a delusional white priest who claims to be an Obama supporter has joined in the fray Obama’s ex-pastor, the not-so- Reverend Wright started, we all can talk openly about “Monkey Barrelism” without being considered racists.

These men have their own agendas and are basking in all the attention the media is giving them. Unfortunately there are many people out there who believe words that are repeated in the media over and over again are the undisputed truth.

The democratic primaries have gone on for so long, the candidates themselves are getting tired of their own bullshit, which is why they’re making so many gaffes in their speeches. They all speak without thinking and have to issue daily apologies. They should apologize to the public for their pandering rhetoric and endless sound bytes that are supposedly “taken out of context”…but are remembered far longer than any apology they might make.

I wonder if the October surprise is going to be the “outing” of Obama, finally putting the gay rumors to rest. Will it be the “Water boarding” of McCain to see if the guy can really take it, or could it possibly be Hillary announcing that she’s replacing Judge Judy on her TV Show, while Judy is offered the Vice-Presidential spot on both the Republican and Democratic ticket.

Before the general election we have time to stop “Monkey Barrelism” before it rears its ugly head again. In November I want to respect the candidate that I’ll back and not just wind up voting for the lesser of two assholes running.

One monkey don’t stop the show…but two or three can slow it down!
