Ask iAN * If I had a black cat bone…Another Night Out with Mark Lanegan & B.R.M.C.
It was just another night in Los Angeles, California and another long and High Octane session with BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB was coming to a close.... but the night was far from over for we were all heading out with a few close friends to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to spend a quiet and dark evening with the dark horse...Mr. Mark Lanegan. (B.R.M.C. & Mark Lanegan all in one day?) I thought we were going to some sort of goth club but No. It was the real deal, a real cemetery, where a gob of the old Hollywood geezers and damsels are snug in their grave or sitting in jars like lonesome cigarette ashes...waiting for the rapture screen test that never comes....
Mark Lanegan performing in a huge funeral parlor?
It couldn't be more perfect.
A rumor was going around that the actor who played David Fisher on HBO's Six Feet Under was in attendance...beautiful...and I was with Peter (the black cat), Leah and Robbie (Babe Shadow)...I even ran into some good friends and bumped into Josh Homme...what in the hell had I done to make God so tickled with me that he would bless my junk with such a divine evening? I didn't bother to Ask...I just kept on Rolling...and the performance...lit so very low was hypnotizing...I was lost in some hazy dream...I got so lost that I wound up losing myself in the boneyard and the gang (BRMC) could not find me and though they wished me well, they went to their dens to recover from the day...i ended up hailing a taxi of light and rode through the night with a waxy grin smeared all across my glazed and spiritualized face...thank you all for an unforgettable evening....
