Fun With Downloads: Ars Longa, Vita Brevis

From his fabulous 1997 album, please enjoy Nashville alt-rocker Tommy Womack's "Whatever Happened to Cheetah Chrome?", perhaps the most profound -- and certainly the funniest -- meditation on the transient nature of fame ever in what Casey Kasem refers to as the field of rock-and-roll.


You can download it HERE. And as always, if the authorization has expired by the time you get to the clip, just e-mail me blah blah blah.

Uh, and just in case Tommy reads this and gets pissed that I'm essentially giving away his stuff, I should mention that he has a way entertaining website that behooves beholding -- www.tommywomack.com. And that you can, and should, order his albums -- including the aforementioned Positively Na Na -- over there posthaste.

Note to self: Odes to semi-obscure members of the 70s punk band The Dead Boys less beloved than expected.

Didn't get to it in time. His book "The Cheese Chronicles" is supposedly one of the best ever written about being in a (not very successful) band.
