No Problem guys:
For me, personally, today, has been a rough day and I really needed to be inspired by something to help me through the day, especially today. So because I don't have anything going on tonight, I wanted to write this Sermon from King X's show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin earlier this year in June 26th, 2009. I'm writing this out completely from the legal bootleg I have from the show. I hope everyone out there reads this and feels inspired. It's a long read but well worth it:
Doug's Sermon during Over My Head, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 6-26-2009:
Welcome to The First Church of Rock And Roll. Here are your pastors, Ty Tabor (Guitar, Vocals), Jerry Gaskill (Drums, Vocals). You can just call me Reverend Dug (Doug Pinnick, Bassist, Vocals).
Yeah it's The First Church of Rock And Roll. Now we don't subscribe to any religion. We have no doctrine. We have no rules or regulations. We have no Heaven or Hell. We have no forgiveness for sins. We leave that up to the religious people. This is just Rock And Roll.
Freedom! Free Your Mind! Let Yourself Go! Have A Good Time! Express Yourself! And Love One Another! I call that Rock and Roll.
Can I get a witness? Y'all know what I'm talking about. I have a story to tell you.
When I was a young boy, I was about 16 years old. it was a long time ago. My cousin she said to me, "Doug, it's a terrible thing to do the thing you don't wanna do for the rest of your life." I thought about that for a second. "To do the thing I don't wanna do for the rest of my life." I saw all my relatives going to a job that they didn't want to do. They were miserable, they were not happy. I wonder about that You know, like, a lot of people beat their wives. They're bad to their children. They live miserable lives. They're Manic Depressives, they're unhappy, it's because they are doing the thing they don't want to do for the rest of their lives. You know what I'm saying?
Some of you are musicians and artists. You're Guitar players, Bass Players, Drummers, Singers...Let me hear you! (Crowd Cheers Loudly) Now listen! I was 38 years old before King's X got a record deal. Everyone said "It's Over" "Give Up" "Get A Real Job" "Give Up This Bullshit!" But I stuck it out. I was 38 years old.
I was 23 years old when I started playing bass. That's old for some people. I want to tell you people. If it's in your heart, if it's in your soul, if you feel it's what your suppose to do, THEN DO IT! Don't let anyone stop you. Do you hear what I'm saying? It's a terrible thing for a man to do the thing he don't wanna do for the rest of his life. Do you hear what I'm saying?
Now you may not get rich. You may not get famous. You might not get to be on MTV. You may not get to play in front of anybody except a handful of people, maybe your family. But it doesn't matter. Cause you gotta do what you are meant to do. You got to do what's inside of you. You know what I'm saying? DO IT!
It's a terrible thing to do the thing you don't wanna do for the rest of your life.
Life is too short to love someone who doesn't love you. Life is too short to do the thing you don't wanna do. Life is too short to live with someone who you know you don't need to be living with. Life is too short to put up with PEOPLE'S BULLSHIT! Life is too short. You get what I'm saying?
Can I get a witness?
It's Alright? (Crowd: Alright!) It's Alright? (Crowd: Alright!) It's Alright? (Crowd: Alright!) It's Alright! (Crowd: ALRIGHT!!!) It's Alright! (Crowd: ALRIGHT!!!) It's Alright! (Crowd: ALRIGHT!!!) It's Alright (Crowd: ALRIGHT!!!)
