I’ve always loved Michael Des Barres’ voice. I first saw and heard him on the fourth episode of the first season of the classic sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati as part of the fictional hoodlum rock group Scum of the Earth.
It’s cool that he’s still looking and sounding great at age 67, and it’s cool that he can still write a song that grooves. The song that was on WKRP is also posted below.
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
