A tribute to great bands

As my AIRSUPPLY starts to wain I think of all the POISON I've inhaled with my MOTLEY CREW over the years. I then take the JEFFERSON AIRPLANE to a STARSHIP so I can go get some MEATLOAF before listening to PRINCE. I of try to dance like MICHEAL JACKSON but as usual it looks more like JANET JACKSON or the JACKSON 5 . I often catch myself trying to rock out to AEROSMITH and enjoying the DEEP PURPLE mist while trying to catch an IRON BUTTERFLY. my mind races as I RUNDMC and rush out the door to greet my sweet live with a KISS to get a SEAL of approval while the EVANESCENCE of life leaves us meloncholly. I see DAUGHTRY talking to ELVIS while eating THE BEATLES and flying high with the EAGLRS and PAT BENATAR along with JOAN JETT while playing with DEBBIE GIBSON. It gets kind of ACDC in its current but we get our KIKX with the BLACK CROWS watching them twist with CHUBBY CHECKER and wiping out with the BEACH BOYS wishing the could all be California girls.
