January 29, 1973: Johnny Rivers’ Rockin’ Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu is certified gold!
Rockin’ Pneumonia is a good straight up boogie rock piano song, and very appropiate now since everyone has this freaking flu!
I had my flu shot so I just got laryngitis and the congestion but not the laid out in bed kinda flu. Claudia’s sniffling around the house with an earache and all my friends and their kids are passing it around. So I’m not shaking hands too much. I’m sort of doing the fist kind of greeting. And I’m a little cautious at the gym with the machines and wiping them down before and after.
Last night I hosted Ann Ruckert’s SGA Songwriters Circle. I sang all my songs in lower keys so i didn’t strain myself. I’m sick of the cold, but we keep truckin’ and boogie-ing!
