Everybody keeps asking me: when ya gonna bring back that guy, you know, big as a bear with designer overalls and a voice that could shatter diamonds? Or your sub-human desires. What? Who are you?
But seriously, folks; we got him this week. i’m talking about Mr. Brian Templeton, a great songwriter and foghorn, who commands your presence. His incisive toons and heady interpretations of classic gems is sure to explode the elastic in your BVD’s. He’s one of my go to guys when the goin’ gets rough, like my shrimp Po-boy- induced acne that needs some lovin’.
Helping out on the guitar will be Mr. Billy Loosigian, celebrity pet stylist and New Hampshire’s answer to Jimmy Page. Been in every Boston band in the world since 1975.Mr. David Mattacks, the Atomic Clock, will add his cesium and desist order to the proceedings. I’m bringing my big-ass tube amp, just to show ya. Do not miss this.

Everybody’s been bugging me: when you gonna bring back that fabulous guy: Mr. Brian Templeton. Well, here he is. Brian never fails to amaze me with his great tunes and urgent vocals. Plays guitar and harp, too.
Not only that, but he’s dragging in the ferocious Mr. Billy Loosigian and the Norden Bombsight of the drums: Mr. David Mattacks. I’m gonna stand there with my wooden chair and bullwhip and try to keep these cats on the earth. Rhumb Line Thursday 8:30 to 11:30.

It’s been a long time to have Mr. Brian Templeton missing in action, but, we got ’em this week! A big bear of a man, his songwriting, vocalisms, and harp playing are the stuff dreams are made of. Very impressive! Worse, he’s bringing along a fab nose-busting guitarist in the form of Mr. Billy Loosigian . Long a staple in the Boston scene, his hydrochloric style is sure to get your blood pumping. Add Mr. Dave Mattacks, the Atomic Clock, to the mix, and will wonders never cesium! I’m really looking forward to this and hope I can return to normal by Saturday. Do come! you won’t regret! Ask your yoga instructor if the Blues Bash is right for you.
It’s He-Man Week™ as I drag in the limb-crunching behemoth of the blues: Mr. Brian Templeton. Last time he was here, severe shock and awe erupted on the dance floor and mere mortals (not you) quivered with trepidation at what might happen to their booty whilst under his spell. He’s a really big guy, physically and tonally. Makes me look like Barney Fife. He’s really a great frontman, singer and harpist,and a joy to work with. He’s bringing along Mr. Billy Loosigian, rocket-propelled guitarist and veteran of many an ear-exploding night on this same stage.He’ll be the one in the red cape. Range-finding co-ordinates supplied by the atomic clock, Mr. Dave Mattacks. I’ll be on base. hours: 8:30 till11:30, and, no, we’re not changing them anymore for the winter.

I’m feeling a little woozy tonite. I’ve been having strange dreams about penises and bolt cutters, and I just sneezed and a tiny metal pellet fell out of my nose. There’s some guy and he has big eyes and a pair of Craftsman® pliers squeezing my brain stem. Oh, wait, it’s only Fred!
But seriously, folks, I’m proud to present to you a new face, a new experience, a new surgical procedure in the form of Dr. Brian Templeton. Many cats grabbed and shook my arms and begged me to get this guy to play, and finally,here he is, the font of everlasting blues. Czech out his web site. Don’t ask me what it is, I can’t find it. Just kidding!
Again, I’m as serious as a hangnail, but you gotta see this guy to believe it. Calling in bombing co-ordinates will be Willie A’s master of guitar goulash, Mr. Billy Loosigian, who looks great in a cowboy hat, and knows how to spit between his teeth. Counting time and his blessings will be my favorite Irish Ace of Pace, Mr. Bennie Benson. I’m really excited about this.I hope you agree! I’m bringing’ extra Diaperine®!
And, to put a bug in your ear, Next week is Halloween™ and it falls on a Thursday™. And it’s party time, right!? You’re gonna wear a costume, nez. pa? And who’s better than to put a spell on you but John Keegan®? Well, he’s gonna be my featured specimen with a whole lot of eerie lackawanna, tubes pulsing as we go for the jugular. Make sure you’ve made your peace and assuaged the gods of Erato before dressing in that nearly nude costume. We’ll see you then.
And remember: We’re nothing without You, the viewer. Live mucus is best! Seethe me on Phasebooke:
