He doesn’t know this but sometimes, when I’m really, really mad at Serge I watch this one video of him and it makes me forget why I’m mad.
Most of the time.
It’s probably my favorite video of him. Like, ever. And that’s saying something because I have a boatload of videos of the dude in all manner of rock star-type glory.
I have him singing onstage at The Meadowlands with Bruce Springsteen, for crying out loud! I have him harmonica-ing his way across table tops in a club in Jersey somewhere while people watch in awe as he leaps from table to table. I have him flat on his back on a stage in Spain, sawing away on his guitar while playing for a crowd of thousands.
And yet, it’s the video below that has my heart. It was spontaneous and just so, so Serge. Partly doofus, partly hilarious, partly brilliant. That’s my guy.
