Shakin Street Self·Indulgence Issue

SELF-INDULGENCE ~owie did it. Bryan Ferry did it. Elton John did it. Climax Blues Band did it. Wishbone Ash did it. Focus did it. Clapton has been doing it for years. Neil Young did it. Peter Panks did it. Wet Willie did it. John Lennon did it. Paul McCartney did it. George Harrison did it. Ian Anderson did it. The Dead ... well, you know about them. Marc Bolan did it. Self-indulgence is giving to one's own desires to excess and it's a part of rock as sweat, good times, electricity and sex, sex, sex.

Probably the worst example of self-indulgence is right here. The Shakin' St. staff (Sperrazza, Cutler, Sajecki, Meinzer), along with v,arious other frustrated rock s'tars, giving in to one of their fondest desires: listing their very own Top 10 albums for 1'973, top singles and whatever else they feel like giving in to. Ask them and they'll tell you they're ·acknowledging t_heir _ love and respect for the stars by imitating them. But we know what they're really doing. ' Shocking.
