Our Moto

In the early days of The Beatles they had a "rallying cry" to boost their moral. John would call out; "Where are we going lads?" and the other three would answer in unison; "To the top!" Then he would say; "To the top of what?" and they would answer; "To the topper most of the popper most!"

We in The Tooners have had our mottoes and sayings over the years as well. Here is but a partial list;

"They take what they get (referring to the audience)."

"Close enough for rock and roll."

"Music space aliens made us record."

"Beauty is in the hole of the behinder."

"Play loud enough and no one can hear your mistakes."

"One hit wonders are still a wonder."

"It's not the music but the screams that count."

"You have to drink as much as you can as fast as you can because you never know when you're going to get sick."

"A hand in the bush is worth two in the bird."

"If it was good the kids wouldn't like it."

"There is no right or wrong if you don't know the difference."

"I meant to do that."

"They (the audience) are more afraid of you than you are of them."

"If you're nervous picture the audience naked, then decide which ones will get backstage passes after the show."

"At the very least we're pissing off our folks."

"It beats having to get a day job."

"I'm not an unemployed bum, I'm an artist!"

Spoken with enough authority and conviction even these pearls of swine can lead the troops to victory providing they don't have a lot of time to think about it.
