Johnny Mac's GangStars

BandRockJam

Take five seasoned professionals, present the music as a guidline, (not a script) encourage all players to "do THEIR thing" with this open format, and what do you get? Heart - Soul - MAGIC. The only rule the GangStars keep, is to "find the pocket... and STAY THERE!

Now, take a few of these seasoned pro's and offer them a gig with an open format based on a solid "pocket" and encourage them to play what they mean, mean what they play... what do ya get? SERIOUS grooves - a happy band - a happy crowd and a happy club owner.
That's the magic of Johnny Mac's GangStars!

Lyrics

Endless Highway

Written By: Johnny Mac

Real Brotherhood...
it's so damn hard to find it.
Or people that speak the truth,
and have the nerve to stand behind it.
Well he was that way, but he left us today.
Still I remember, I remember what he used to say...

When my time comes, don't worry my friend.
'Cause where the pavement ends,
there's an endless highway.
The gas is free, there aint no cops behind me.
This is where I wanna be.
And believe me my friend, we'll meet again...
On the endless highway.

Never sell out...
don't take no deals.
Lessons you never forget,
when you learn 'em on the killing fields.
Now he's dead and gone, but his spirit lives on.
And it seems somehow,
he's watchin' my back right now...

When my time comes, don't worry my friend.
'Cause where the pavement ends,
there's an endless highway.
The gas is free, there aint no cops behind me.
This is where I wanna be.
And believe me my friend, we'll be together again...
Ride'n the endless highway.
