    And the camera work sucks on this (wow -- learn a smooth zoom, folks) but the song is great -- Tim O’Brien “Working”.

    AB’s fave rock band from the 60s -- Eric Burdon and the Animals -- We Gotta Get Out of This Place. Did I tell you I once danced as a go-go girl for them and went to eat Freedom Fries with them after the gig? Uh huh. And back then, many pounds lighter and more nimble, I totally rocked.
