Dead Heroes: Here Kirk Anderson, shouter of Motor City’s Dead Heroes (think ruffian refrains and spermatozoa riffs in Lemmy’s kickboots) mouths five things crowding his head this week:
5. Thee NFL The Lions may be mediocre but I now have a reason to roll out of bed on Sundays.
4. Detroit’s Resurgence This sounds funny but these big corporate events (i.e. Ryder Cup 2004, MLB All-Star Game 2005, Super Bowl 2006) may save many independent Detroit-area business owners who remain the foundation in and around this city.
3. Detroit Animal Cops Thank you for saving the innocent while convicting the mentally damned!
2. Motorhead Still recording, still touring … enough said!
1. Tuesday, Nov. 2, Election Day The day this country quits talking about the past and begins thinking about our future!
See Dead Heroes Sunday, Sept. 19, at Alvin’s (5756 Cass Ave., Detroit, 313-831-4577) with the Vibrators and the All New Lows.
