Doing my daily check through the Myrtle Beach version of Craiglist and its music forum, I found a surprisingly fun anonymous post called "MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL." Now it may not be Shakespeare (or even Dr. Seuss), but you have to applaud the effort of the poster for spreading a bit of holiday cheer instead of the usual junk that gets posted. Check it out and thanks to whoever you are...
Twas the night before Christmas,
and all through clubs.
Not a note was sounding,
not even from the subs.
Then all of a sudden,with a riff and a roll, who should appear?
A real cool cat in a big red suit and 8 of his possie just ready to rock.
The music began and oh what groove.
The whole Grand Strand began to move.
They played a set and ended their show.
The Big Man said "I gotta go."
On Fender, on Marshall and Les. On Ludwig. On Tama, Pearl and the rest.
As he rocked out of town, I heard him exclaim,
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A ROCK AND ROLL NIGHT!
