Inevitable Words By Bill Fitzhugh

February 4, 2009

“Eddie was troubled. In his mind everything had gone to pieces. Nothing made sense. His emotions were all over the road, like George Jones behind the wheel of a lawn mower on his way back from the liquor store. He felt abandoned, cheated, guilty, violated., confused, remorseful, anxious, and saved, all at once. Eddie didn’t know how to deal with the emotional chaos, except with his guitar. He was scared half to death and he knew he had to find words for his confusion or it would consume him. But words wouldn’t be enough: the emotional turbulence had to be set to music. The dissonance in his mind had to be translated into melody. Minor chords seemed inevitable.”

Bill Fitzhugh, Fender Bender
