One of my favorite Rollins Band songs. The original video is pretty good too. – even though there is much less beefcake 😉 ——————————- Going away for a bit – so this is the 1 day compressed Oly Lift schedule. Forgot to post this when I left. ———————– Pre-WOD Double-unders: Best and only attempt – […]

– Greg Lake (ELP) – From the Beginning. Was tempted to put up the 1974 California concert of him singing Still You Turn Me On. I keep watching that video because I am mesmerized by his ability to sing like that + chew gum + play guitar. Please don’t ask why. ————- Pre-WOD 5 min […]
