What's up everyone. My name is Snooze and I'm new to this whole internet chat thing.

Anyway, I wanted to let everyone out there know that me and another viper driver have put together a CD of completely original fighter pilot songs that we wrote while in OIF. Our band is called Dos Gringos and the CD is "Live at the Sand Trap". You may have heard a few of our songs traversing the net as mp3s. If anyone is interested in this CD, please go to www.dosgringosrocks.com. All the info you need is at that site, plus you can listen to samples of the songs.

WARNING!! - Our songs contain explicit lyrics and are not meant for children under 18 or anyone else who is easily offended.

Snooze,

Glad you pudknockers know of Weed. Got a bottle in the freezer!!! It is Sierra Hotel, know doubt. You up on the story of finding two redheads, searching for a Rhino crash site, and finding Weed story?

Finally, I found you guys!!!! "I'm A Pilot" has been floating around base for a while now, but when I do a search for Dos Gringos all I get is a mariachi band! That song F$%*&n rocks! I just heard the demos of the other songs, I'm definitely getting a CD as soon as I get my problems worked out with activating my PayPal account.

Thanks for posting this on f-16.net!

Sounds great Snooze. You'll be in good company here. Welcome to the forum. Don't forget us little people when you go out on tour LMAO. :D :D

First of all thats really REALLY good music. Lots of talent. I don't have anything against strong language for the purpose, but your music is so damn good it doesn't need it. Again really great sound. ( When I was little my mom took me to hear the communist/socialist folk singer Pete Seager.lol ) Sounds a bit like him. But your stuff is better and you aren't damn commies LOL.

Well done. I'll be ordering a CD soon.

Hey Snooze,

That's some really funny stuff! Never heard songs like that before. The language makes it even funnier! I'll have to get this CD. I'll have to tell all my freinds to get it too.
Be sure to make another CD!

Later,
Jayson

JR, yeah I read the story of Weed in the Sierra Hotel book about flyin fighters in the 70's. Although I personally like all the BS stories like the eagle guys who flew to the factory and filled their external tanks with it - I don't know where that one started.

And to mohody - damn right maintainers are invited, don't see why not. "I'm a Pilot" was written for 'em. I hope the maintainers realize that song is us pilots poking fun at ourselves (sts). I've heard of some guys getting really peeved at that song.

I came from the active duty, 34th at Hill to be exact so I know all about the pod stuff. I laughed my a$$ off!!! I didn't get to know the pilots all that well while on active duty, but I did 2 years of sitting alert at our detachment at Langley AFB and I can honsestly say I can see where some will laugh and some will take offense(because they're the ones you're poking fun at!). Keep up the good work, by the way can you elaborate more on the story of "Weed"?

ROFLOL!

Oh yeah, warms the sedimentary layers (Triassic or Jurassic at latest) of my crusted heart.

Meanwhile, how about a few refrains from the Viet Era:

From the 'Nail" song,

"Dear Mom, your son is dead, he bought the farm today
He crashed his OV-10 on Ho Chi Minh's highway,
It was a rocket pass, and then he busted his as&^%, Hmmmm, Hmmmm, Hmmmm>'

Then the morbid F-100 troops' song ....( to the tune of a Christmas/Halloween song, something about people and a town....)

"Spray the town and kill the people,
Kill them with your poison gas,
Watching them throwing up their breakfast,
as you make your second pass,"

and on.......

Then there were the Ranch Hands who sprayed agent orange( and purple, until now secret).

The tune was 'Shine on Harvest Moon", but some of the words were....

" Spray on, spray on harvest rice.. nuh nah nuh nah,
Isn't killing harvest nice?"

Their motto was " Only WE can prevent forests!"

Gasp!!! Guess we all lost our sense of humanity between rocket attacks and getting hosed every mission.

Would still like to see this thread moved. Also try to keep it less vulgar.

tired, old warrior sends...........

JR, is that T-Bird yours? I got to see the last T-Birds leave Tyndall back in 87. Very, very sad time. Unfortunately, I haven't seen a single T-33 fly since, and that's nearly been 20 years now. I heard some guy that flew a T-Bird in airshows, was killed recently in a mishap. Perhaps someone can elaborate more on that one. Bad enough I guess that the guy had to go, but he had to take a T-Bird with him. What a crime. Oh yeah, maybe Gums knows this one. A song from Nam called something like "I Don't Wanna Fly in an F-105." It was written, of course, by some Phantom Phlyers. I used to know the lyrics. One of the funniest pilot songs ever written.
