Joey’s Been Down & Loaded
“Sittin’ round thinkin’, thinkin’ and a thinkin’
And it ain’t doin’ me no good.
I want to know, that everything that’s sung will remain.
Well i thunk thunk thunk thunk a lot about it, realized my thunk is nothin’ but a lot of funk. So bunk down on in my place.”
“Only A Dream (hummm)”
“Couldn’t think of anything better,”
(excerpt from the song “Thunk” written by Joey Covington, released on the Jefferson Airplane Bark Album
Copyright Jehrico Rose, Inc.)
The music remains and it’s time to get it out!
Well, what happened to 2008 ?

To my friend, Floyd Red Crow Westerman
Let the winds blow, through your hair
Let the clouds cry, and wash away the pain
Let the sun shine, while it keeps your spirit warm
As you finally fly with the eagle.
Hey Floyd, I listened to your CD,
“A Tribute to Johnny Cash”
WHAT’S Been GOING ON
Joey wants to let everyone know that his friend Jerry Schilling recently had his book published called “Me and a Guy Named Elvis” on Gotham Books. Jerry was a close friend of and a part of Elvis’s “Memphis Mafia”. His book is written with the deep sensitivity that only a friend could have. Jerry writes of things that the public never knew before and dispels a lot of the misinformation that has been said or written over the years about Elvis. It’s a great book !
