gotta lot riding on it

heres me in 1985

i was talking to a reporter

a piece of my mind

all set to music

put into words

enamel finish

a soft transfer

a movement on a graph

ideas where do they come from

love where does  it go

money burn blow away

fall awake asleep

i cant be alone

push myself away

change events in the replay

i am anyway

cant hear what with my ears

my head knuckled down


eyes were stabbed by a ray

but i see real sad stuff

mother father of sick kids

it rains

cosmic influx of malevolence

power escapes as wrath

wrath seethes away as a hiss

we shot overhead

we head overshot

i dream a new end

i create monster

i tinker with hook line sinker

i fed ex document

i said word

i beg yer pardner

thats it

    Amazing, you finally induced another blog.
    Thank god you never accepted any other awards. The other band members must have been amazingly bored and pissed off with your amazingly stupid speech.
    Finally you humble yourself to accept an aria, amazingly 20 years too late.
    Please dont drink red cordial before you take your amazing self on stage.

    p.s. Tool are touring soon, I hope you have let them know you are one, and will be available if there is a short circuit at any performance.

      hey anonymous, I guess you don’t know sk very well, he’s been doing that for years, just ask the other members, they don’t give a fuck, and why do you hide when you leave a reply?

    Your head must be spinning- what an eventful bunch of days in a row. Now you and the boys are preparing for ‘the church ‘ shows and a possible? recording. So-catch your breath , take a breather, – chill a lit. You most definately deserve it !!!!!!

    the river retreats from its banks once in a while
    only to reveal a microcosm of new life once hidden from the sky
    it’s no mystery and certainly no lie how the breath of time
    flows in and out as we run the long mile of life
    don’t be alarmed or apologize for words that don’t fly
    let them walk on the ground and scurry around to capture the vibe
    the canvas reflects seasons, color, darkness, give it a try
    it’s just part of the puzzle that flows together with the light
    are we alright as we consider the madness, the unsettled mind?
    there’s no judge or jury, my friend, let the reader decide…

    Anonymous, let’s put your bag on SK in perspective: 1stly, anyone who even knows when “TooL” are touring is certainly riding in the slow lane and is aesthetically bereft. . I look at it as entertainment. Maybe SK got “Too into it” by some uptight standard. . I thought the rest of the stuff was rote and boring. He made the show better. It livened it up and made it interesting. .. To me there are only two considerations: Boring or engaging. His 15 minute speech held my attention.Also, I do not think the mystery of the Church was based on some James Dean Laconic pose. It was, and is, in the poetic nature of the lyrics. So no mystery was lost as far as I can see. The story about the manager and The Church in the WW 2 bomber and the door opening and what the manager said about the possible newspaper story”The Church were there too”. That was funny. “That’s entertainment” To Quote The Jam. The Lovely Hostess was right to say SK needs his own Show. I think he could make a great Rock N Roll show that interviews musicians (Past and present) maybe live in studio. videos. Maybe have other kinds of guests along with musical guests. Interview Actors, writers, film makers , comedians, etc..

      The assnon-mouses that respond to this blog have been given too much time from all of us, the creative minds that exist on this site, i suggest that we just ignore their ignorant rants. Thats what they are. I got caught up in responding to an attack on SK last month…and it really angered me…not the moron that attacked SK, NO- it was my response and negativity. i was having a bad month family and health wise and I lashed out at a ignorant stranger. I should have just ignored it and let SK moderate HIS site. I will no longer respond like that because it is a waste of my energy and talents, and from the people that i have become accustomed to reading, maybe we all should.

    Fair enough dwellingwell. But it would have been nice to have heard thoughts of other Church members without interruptions.

    There’s always some anonymous loser on the Internet who derives pleasure from pissing on others. In-between jerking off to Internet porn, these twits come out of the woodwork in every corner of the on-line world to expose their bleak humanity and gain some imagined ego boost. What are the chances that any of them will ever win an award for anything? Zero.

    Rest and be well, SK. Going soon to the terrestrial home of the Time Being (Austin, TX). I’ll look for the shrine.

    Watched the Hall of Fame lassa nite. Was a very proud momento to c my fav band inducted. Thought they did a good job on the package, wow all those album covers and more to come, the mind boggles.
    Unguarded Moment is still an all time fav from the early days, it’s timeless. What a speech, had a good laugh. Could tell the wine had been flowing by afew of the comments from the audience. Nice touch mentioning the other inductees. Pleased that Ploogy got a mention. The other guys didn’t say much, knew they had been outdone by your goodself. U certainly got the crowd going. Thought u did very well, bet there were afew things u wanted to say about the old days but didn’t. Nice to mention your Mum and know your Dad would have been smilin from up above.
    Hope the gig prices don’t go up too much now you’re all in the Fame Hall.

    Peace & love

    I hope you can soak up and enjoy the afterglow of your stellar performance, Steve, and not get closed in by the narrow confines of your personal troubles. Try to keep a broader view. The Buddha said, “A spoon of salt in a glass of water makes the water undrinkable. A spoon of salt in a lake is almost unnoticed.”

    Steve,I’m still laughing at your ARIA speech all these days later!
    I also remember clapping to Caralyn at school,probably about 13 years after you!Maybe it was a Canberra thing?Heard it on RRR this morning and now have an earworm.
    Never heard Old Man Emu before,but absolutely loved your recital.After listening to some versions on youtube today,I don’t think anyone will ever be able to top your version.

    to those of you who think that too much SK is barely enough, here’s a link to an interview (by a pretty ordinary interviewer) done around the time of the HOF night:

    The speech was funny Steve. I will have to admit there came a point where it became a little emarrassing. Sort of like the drunk uncle at the wedding who doesn’t know when to quit. All in all quite amusing. Jipper

    Theres a difference between self absorbed and going with the moment he would not be intentionally rude and Im sure the other band members werent fussed
    How is being inducted into the hall of fame after 20 years too late?
    you dont see many bands or individual musicians who are inducted ( or induced) earlier hence the Hall of FAME

    What a way to close out 2010!! The Church in the Hall of Fame and the Giants are about to win the World Series!!!
