Nobody Flashes: What a Fool Believes

Nobody Flashes

This is one of my favorite songs. I can’t for the life of me figure out what it’s about…something about he was in love with someone long ago and THINKS she still loves him, but she really doesn’t…I don’t know. You tell me.

Mike is from Ferguson, MO. Yes THAT Ferguson. I used to go see him in his first band here in St. Louis when I was 16, in a club called THE CASTAWAYS. And I played in bands with many of the musicians that he grew up playing with.

That’s how long he’s been singing. He didn’t play piano then, he was the lead singer of the Sheratons. He left this town and went on to the Doobie Brothers and the rest is history.

The neighborhood where he grew up is very pretty. Almost plantation looking houses.

I love his voice. It’s almost painful to watch him sing, but there it is.

The piano and bass lines on this is so…original. That man can SING.

Mike…IS an original. Showing that good things did come out of Ferguson. And this version is…one I just saw.

Enjoy.
