Ride The Wild Wind - Sonny Del-Rio Interview


Deep gutted. Full chromed. Slammed to the floor.
Supercharged Merc’. Bustin’ for more.
Blue smoke trailing,
Stars tumbling out of the sky,
My wild-eyed passenger screaming,
'I don't wanna die!'

Two weeks under lock and key,
‘Compulsive. Unpredictable’.
That’s what they’d laid on me.
But… a lucky break- an open window, a quick phone call.
Grab the sax. Bail out the car.
Look out Marco's Club, here I come.

People soon will be yelling:
'More! More! More!’'
As my sax gets them jumpin’
across a jammed dance floor.

Turn to my buddy:
‘I'm not trying to kill you, man!
Just getting you ready for some
ROCK N’ ROLL!'
~ Neil Sharpe

Rock n' Roll. Straddling the rhythm-and-blues-powered-engine of change. The music that saved a generation. And not a moment too soon.
Which isn't to say, it went easy…


If I was sick, rock was my medicine. If I was lonely, it was my friend. If I was down, it was my inspiration. It was pure joy, a blessing and…sometimes a curse...

I'm the kind of hombre who passions to try new things. Presently I'm building my private pv panels. I'm managing it all by myself without the assistance of my men. I'm using the net as the only path to acheive this. I discovered a very amazing site which explains how to build pv panels and wind generators. The web site explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

I am not really sure about how correct the data given there iz. If some people over here who had experience with these things can have a see and give your feedback in the thread it will be grand and I would highly treasure it, cauze I extremely enjoy solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. You guys rock.

I would like to read more on that site soon. By the way, pretty nice design that blog has, but how about changing it once in a few months?
