Q. Why is your Tumblelog called "My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning"?

The Band - “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” (The Last Waltz, 1976)
I have lost track of how many times I have fallen asleep to The Last Waltz after coming home late from the bar. That may not sound like a rousing endorsement but it is.
I’ve always found it weird that so many Canadians were involved in the writing and performance of this song… though it’s not like that really matters when you have the drummer from Arkansas killing it.
