I was waiting on a Greyhound in Baton Rouge when a man walked up to me looking like bad news. Then, he said, "Hey Jimi, won't you play me a song?," but I don't respond to any other name but Sean. Well, I must've bruised his ego, 'cause he got pissed. His left hand grabbed my neck and his right formed a fist. Then, he said, "Hey Lenny, you must not have skills; if you don't wanna play, give it to me and I will!" He tried to be a thug, but it didn't get far. I can't believe that man tried to steal my guitar. Well, I knew where this was going, so I tightened my grip, lifted up the head stock, and busted his lip. Then, he said, "Hey Hootie, what'd you do that for?" You touched my pride and joy, so you know this means war! My guitar has been better to me than flesh and blood. It helps me to speak when my words aren't enough. My guitar is the tool that I use to make a living, and it even makes me attractive to the women. If you tried to sever a mother from her child, would you really be shocked if she got a little wild? I have never been known as a violent kinda man, but if you push me to, then I certainly can. Well, he tried to knock me out, but my Jag was a shield. Security arrived, and he started to yield. Then, they said, "Hey Mister, it's now under control." You can never separate me from my rock and roll! They whisked him off in cuffs and threw him in a car. That's what he gets for trying to steal my guitar. I'm pretty sure my Jagmaster left a big scar. Don't touch my baby if you ain't ready for war!
