    that's pretty much what druid66 said too, I think you might have misunderstood him

    @Druid66 .... What a know-nothing asshole. Wolf was a happily-married, COMMITTED husband and family man, as well as a successful business man.... entirely different in life from his stage image.

    Wolf's bemoaning the loss of his woman by using irony, saying he's doing well when he's really not... I don't think he believes that career success is as sweet without romantic success to round it off - and he's right about that!

    And when Wolf sits on it, it's been sat on.

    I'm sitting on top of the world too. Sometimes things are easier after the woman has gone - no worries about material possessions, because you don't have any!

    is he saying either: "success in life more than makes up for a failing personal life" or is he saying "i've killed myself after she left"? neither sentiment seems particularly appealing, so I hope someone comes up with a third interpretation.

    Howlin'Wolf, com esta gravidade na voz, torna muito agradável de se ouvir suas músicas (blues)
