|...But should have been.|
At the press junkett for the launch night of previews, camera crews were asking what Bat Out of Hell meant to us. In the midst of bigger contributors to the community (Ben, if I became a bit of a bumpling wreck it's only because you found us some of my favirote Jim's songs of all time and you're pretty much in the same leauge as him to me at this point) I didn't speak to the cameras outside. But in the midst of Jim's triumph and talent on show in the fullest, most complete form it's ever been I'll share with you all.
Jim's music is timeless, not just in the cultutral sense, his songs are still played, his albums still re-enter charts and his influence is still heard today. It is timeless on a much more intimate and personal level. Jim's music represents so much good in my life. It represents bonding with my mum and listening to You Took the Words as a 5 year old boy, it represents rediscovering it, and the rest of the album, years later and becoming so engrossed that friends and teachers around me could sing Two out Of Three Ain't Bad word-for-word as we drove through the french countryside a decade ago,
it represents playing a song for a loved one meant for something else then living amongst us, it represents meeting the love of my love of my live and walking through the streets, drunk, happy, singing and dancing the night away (because "if you gotta be damned...", right?)
Okay, so my words are alot grander and alot less "Jacob" in written form but that would have been the jist.
I think, if you really get Jim's music, then you become more than a fan, you have an extension built onto your soul, an obsession, an absolute life changer.
