One thought on “Rock My World Canada, chapter 217: Bentwood Rocker

  • The Sands of Time were true dickheads! I was the lead singer of another band, The Trolls, from a neighboring town, Madoc, and these asswipes in The Sands always treated us like shit. What a bunch of pricks! When l became the #1 nighttime deejay on Belleville’s CJBQ, l had the last laugh! They came to me for on-air favours and it was pure joy to to snub the little fuckers, Ain’t karma beautiful, boys?! If anyone of you little pricks are out there and read this, may you all smoke turds in hell! Lots of love from Joey Edwards🖕!
