Lay Down Sally

Lay Down Sally

Hearing Eric Clapton's 1977 tune "Lay Down Sally" on my way to work this morning brought a huge smile to my face. I realized it was the first time I had actually heard it in full since seeing Tracy Letts' August: Osage County.

Given that the first track from the same landmark Clapton album "Slowhand" is "Cocaine," I had a sudden epiphany this morning for why Violet Weston might have such an affinity for his work.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

Speaking of addictions, I think we may need to stage an August: Osage County intervention with you, my friend.

You know, that popped up on the satellite radio twice yesterday at Barnes and Noble and had immediate flashbacks.

Chris, I can't control what they play on the radio.

...But given that I'm thinking of seeing the show again...
