It's Rude Guru - Yeah!

What I think:

I was in a band in Montreal in the late-80's. It was called Rude Guru, and we were truly the pioneers of Goof Rock. We played a quite a few really good gigs, and we even had a bit of a following. We called our fans the "Rude Guru-pies".

The lead guitarist from the band has recently started up a website. It's only in its infancy, but it tells the story of the Rude Guru himself, and how he set out to use the band as a vehicle for spreading his good word. It also has a section with a few photos and some songs we recorded as well.

Go and take a peek at www.rudeguru.com to see what I looked like about eighteen years ago. I'm the guy with the Gibson SG, if that means anything to you.

More stuff will be added over the coming months, but it's definitely worth checking out now.

The new Swedish government could certainly learn a thing or two from the teachings of the Rude Guru, and all the ministers should visit the site, and then arrange a reunion concert in Helsingborg. Maybe at a really classy venue, like the Charles Dickens pub. That's what I think.

Aw, that picture is too small!!!! Tell him the Rude Gurupies want some close-ups! And now I feel old because I have that mind-set that the late eighties were just a couple of years ago. ;-)

Glad to know you're still up to no good. I looked at the picture but it's too small to really see you.
