Heres an example:

I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company.
But lately there aint been much work on account of the economy.
Bruce Springsteen The River

Perfect example for government work:

Now, Ive never held an honest job in my entire life, Ive never done any hard labor. Ive never worked 9 to 5. Ive never worked five days a week until right now.

Big laugh.

I dont like it!

Big laugh.

Ive never seen the inside of a factory, and yet its all Ive ever written about. Standing before you is a man who has become wildly and absurdly successful writing about something of which he has had absolutely no personal experience.

Big laugh.

I made it all up.

Big laugh.

Thats how good I am.

speaking of one note guitar solos...
https://youtu.be/z8IGGylTjOk

first solo: there are multiple notes, due to bending.  FAIL.
second solo: i hesitate to call that part a solo... but fine.  WIN, i guess.
third solo: legit.  WIN (although some might say the use of the wah is cheating...)
fourth solo: uh... "a few seconds later"?  how convenient to skip THE OTHER NOTES.  FAIL.
fifth solo:  legit.  WIN.

60% - barely a passing grade.  we need better next time.

CCR's "Tombstone Shadow" just popped up on my iTunes. Fabulous one-note solo double-tracked and in unison!

see?  this is the quality we expect.  would have gotten double points for including Tombstone.

After years of vigilance, guitar player gets his Ricky back

guitar player gets his 1966 Rickenbacker back which was stolen out of a storage unit.   After years of checking ebay, etc it turns up for action and the person selling it was the singer from the Coral who had bought it in a guitar shop in Paris.
