    I'm looking for new work boots, and I typed in "Irish Settzer" instead of "Irish Setters".

    The muscle memory in my fingers....... Wish they where programmed to play like Setzer, not type Setzer..

    Sorry, I had to share this.

    I believe the Irish Settzers play songs like...

    ...

    ...

    No can't think of any :(

    Ooh, how about "I attract 'The troubles'" or "Rumble in Belfast" (Sure he sang that when The Stray Cats played there)

    Ok, I'll shut up now :)

    C3383A97-0E91-4DB3-AE8A-A5118CE125FF.jpeg 1. You have a Re-occurring dream that you are hanging out with said guitar hero after his show n jamming guitars with him..
    2. You remember dancing to Stray Cat Strut at the High school dance in 10th grade.
    3. You purchased a 63 Fender bassman and Tv Jones Classics due to Guitar Players rig run down in 2000/01.
    4. See em perform at Anabells in Redondo. At the Hootenany. At the House of Blues. At his Christmas show.. At Hollywood Bowl.
    5. Get a Bass lesson from John Hatton, cuz he plays with Setzer.
    6. Finally purchase a BSHR and it turns out to be a Proto guitar that Brian Has jammed!! And has Tv BS proto’s loaded in the guitar Which in turn made the my guitar Priceless!!
    Note; All this but I’ve yet to...meet Brian or
    Get the Cat tattoo on my shoulder!! 862A0B24-782F-41F0-A446-C72919666ABF.jpeg Cd is from “fan club” pre sale, 40th Anni show and remains unopened awaiting said guitarist’s Signature....

    uh oh.. here it comes AGAIN! :)

    Setzer invites you to hang with him after his show and buys a couple pedals from you. :)
    ...i know I know, its a tired story but its mine and I'm gonna use it to post pictures of me when I was 35lbs overweight from eating whatever I wanted and drinking too much whiskey. Even Setzer today looks 50% healthier than here just before he got totally sober. We're both in good shape but have never spoken since. :)

    I’m one of the few....tat less...
    Also my Ma would kill me.. I’ve toyed with the thought. I’d have chicks of all kinds in heels, skirt, shorts n bikinis. 10 per arm.. then slot machines/gambling icons between em all.. and a Stray Cat...
    if I could.

    Yes totally.. I drank Redbreast single pot 12yr, Jameson 18yr, and Suntori hibicki.. wasted tons of money. The irish side of my family carries a really bad gene that connects anxiety and alcoholism. One of anything is never enough.

    7. Learn the solo to Stray Cat Strut.
    8 Buy Brian Setzer’s guitar instruction video.
    9 Use D’Addario 10’s cuz Brian does.
    10. Were amazed he went he went on stage with a stand up bass in hand and slapped a solo.
    11. Wear Creepers when playing out cuz Brian does..
    My Top Eleven....
