Steerhorns On My Subaru

A bit of levity from Bob Aldo:

My name is Bob Aldo, given name Robert E. Alderisio. Originally from Pittsburgh, I have lived in Taos County for 50 years - until the Hondo Fire of 1996, I lived with my wife, the artist Margaret Nes, in the small mountain community of La Lama, south of Questa. We lost the 2 story log cabin we had built ourselves in that huge forest fire that engulfed our whole community.

In the 70's I was part of Northern NM's best known hippy rock band, The Oriental Blue Streaks, named after the old Oriental Blue Streak gas stations - one of which was just south of town, (it even was looking shabby in 1970.) We later changed the name to Dolly And The Lama Mountain Boys, with the addition of a great female vocalist/pianist, Sarah Baker.

(The band name was a sort of pun on the Dalai Lama. That is why we called Sarah "Dolly").

The band wet to San Francisco in 1973, and became very well known in the Bay Area - playing

all the rock clubs in that area. When Sarah got sick we had to cancel a lot of gigs. We decided

to come back to Taos. (Except for Sarah, who stayed and is now retired from Sonoma State University after teaching music there for decades.)

When we got back from California, I began doing a single act, which I did for many years in Taos and Red River. Although I was best known for playing blues, I always wrote and performed original ballads, country songs, rock songs, novelty songs, etc. (started song writing at the age of 9).

This is a humorous country song meant to provide a laugh for people in this tough time we are living through. Hope you get a laugh out of it!
