Blast Off by Franchesco Blast Off by Franchesco
*****Update*****


Dream ON!

"Everytime that I look in the mirror...
All these lines in my face getting clearer.
The past is gone...
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way...
Everybody's got their dues in life to pay.

Yeah, I know nobody knows...
Where it comes and where it goes.
I know it's everybody's sin
You've got to lose to know how to win!

Half my life is in books' written pages...
Lived and learned from Fools and from Sages.
You know its true...
All the things come back to you.

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laugh, sing for the tears
Sing with me, if its just for today
Maybe tomorrow the Good Lord will take you away.

Dream on, Dream On, Dream On...
Dream until your dream comes true!"
--Aerosmith

Dreams sometimes do come true... :w00t:
Dream ON!!

i always thought that this was a Ronnie James Dio's (r.i.p.) song, and aerosmith version is a cover.

You are probably right, BOMBED... I am far from being an expert in any way. I can only speak from personal experience, and in my world... the only version I have ever known, and thereby only relate to ...is the one Aerosmith memorialized in the soundtrack of my youth. It speaks to me on so many levels, it truly blows my mind.

Not to take anything away from other renditions that may have come before or after--
Thanks to your post, I will definitely be searching it out...
appreciating the heads-up

So friggin awesome!! I love the little things that you do. The clear guitar... the way that the bottom cutaway of the guitar follows her torso, so we dont loose the sense of her curves... the top toggle switch to intimate her nipple/reflection that is on her left breast.... you, sir are a mad genius!
Sincere congratulations on this great gig!!! Dreams DO come true!!

I love how over the top this is. The animated version was nice too. I've always admired the large lid icon beauties of comics. So very American. When's the next time you'll be in Chicago? We can catch up and talk art!

Awesome, now that's what I call ...a win/win!
(I just got a flash of folks at the concerts picking up the shirts, on their way to see 'em play live... those kind o' flashes can't ever get old. Only thing better than that, would be hotties flashing during the concert, with my shirts on/off.)

Thanks again, KANDERSON! :highfive:

I am sure the Aerosmith is equally honoured by your work my friend. Though I love the Ronnie James Dio ( R.I.P. ) & Yngwie Malmsteen cover of this song, Aerosmith is the song's true owner, as many other songs, which are all masterpieces..

Amazing Art! You again rocked with your brush maestro!

Good to know-- I've not heard those covers yet. I just can't get "Dream On" out of my head these days... gonna look them up for sure. If you like them, then I know I will like them too, SERHAT!

Thank you my friend... your kind words mean a lot!! :highfive:
