"... to be able to see inside of albums..." I really like this type of virtuous approach to an artist's music, if this is what it truly is...? Would you believe that just this morning, as I was getting ready for work, I was reminiscing about certain cultural phrases from growing up, and I remembered the lyrics of a Skynyrd song that reminded me of a southern cultural phrase I'd heard from one of their albums. The lyrics came from a cultural phrase or expression used, I suppose, expressly by male
adolescents, who were, when Ronnie Van Zant wrote and added these lyrics, were,
and as Ronnie would say "...here it comes (referring to those chord killing guitar licks)..." uncircumcised southern boys. The lyrics from the song were "...skin your worm..." I learned from those lyrics that this cultual phrase, "skin your worm," was an adolescent discovery or post-puberty discvovery of the male sex organ that was still surrounded by foreskin, hence, "skin your worm." Now this type of uncircumcised discovery, in southern culture (or maybe other cultures, I don't know) was part of the boyhood charm of masculine discovery and becoming a man. A real man...knowing the qualities of his possessions with or without circumcision--this is how I'm able to see inside the albums--through the life and music of the artist.
Is it true that a musician's life is their music and their music life? Look, I know, there are all kinds of musicians (thank God) and music to fill every lifetime. "...I know, it's only rock ' n' roll, but..." Yes, I do. Oh, please let me know which Skynyrd song has those "...skin your worm..." lyrics. Thanx, Die Hards!!
