Butler + hitchhiking + Chisel = Stereo Story

John Butler can make you laugh and he can make you – if not cry – ponder the deeper moments. This time it’s via the Cold Chisel song My Turn To Cry.

Our would-be saviour squeezed his massive frame out of his small sports car. Silhouetted only by the car’s internal light, he was a daunting sight. Shaggy eighties perm, muscular hairy shoulders exposed by a blue tank top, a cloud of steam emanated from him as his body hit the cold night air. I recognised Cold Chisel’s Swingshift album playing at ear-bleed levels on his tape deck. The song was My Turn To Cry. I was hoping it wasn’t an omen...

Hitch a ride over to our stable mate, Stereo Stories.
