The Sledgehammer

Disclaimer:
This post is best read whilst listening to "Sledgehammer" by Peter Gabriel.


I have a nickname many of you may not know about...

I am The Sledgehammer.




I earned this nickname. I earned it.

Back when we used to drive around in a dirty van (not to mention live out of it), we used to find ourselves late to a show every once and a while. It was in these situations that I would become The Sledgehammer. I would get us there. By any means necessary. Speed Limits couldn't hold back The Sledgehammer.

I once drove the van and trailer 300 miles in 4 hours. It was then that I tried making the guys call me The Sledgehammer all the time. I wouldn't respond to Jon, Jonathan, or even Dude, Look Out We're Gonna Crash!!

While that didn't last, the guys still call me The Sledgehammer every now and then. Sometimes Jas likes to introduce me as The Sledgehammer when I'm going into a guitar solo... generally I start laughing enough to biff the solo.

So the next time you see me remember.... I don't answer to Jonathan.

It's The Sledgehammer.
