Encyclopedia of Lincoln Bands


I try not too get misty-eyed about "the good-old days".
I am not one for nostalgia, but that's the time I was
living and breathing and dreaming music, and it will
always be with me.

When I drive home from work, sometime i will see kids
milling about before a matinee show at Knickerbockers.
A parent unloading an amp from the station wagon,
a kid with his drum kit set up on the sidewalk before
anyone has come to open up the bar. I don't know the kids,
or the bands, but i know their passion and enthusiasm.

THAT is what it's all about.
