Poor Jimi's Dead

Poor Jimi's dead and his music used to turn baby boomers heads. A musical icon shills a new car. Let me stand next to your fire. Nothing sacred in the consumer world. Those who once thought you a joke use your songs to invoke what is left of a generations youthful fire. I can see the Mother Teresa Depends commercial on the horizon, and the Princess Diana, brakes. Jimi, you're lucky it wasn't charcoal. Let me stand next to your fire.

Maybe the last one I read, really was meant to be funny after all. Anyone who writes about Mother Teresa's Depends commercials can't be all serious. I don't know this Jimi, but certainly got a chuckle out of the writing. oldbuck
