(Lisa says: "My husband played in a band,
Sinister Midget, for
years (they're on hiatus now) and they did "Stealin" and
the Head East song "Reason" as a medley.
...I have a goal to name a sandwich at Doc's too !"
Thanks for the call today about our deli in Mansfield !
Yep - well, I was surfing around one day last week and came across
an article titled:
"Uriah's Heep has made it. So have The Madhatter
and I Love Lucy. Those three sandwiches are in the archive and on
the menu at a Glessner Avenue deli that got its start when Dave
Gorka's mom was in the hospital down the street."
I was intrigued -
like what does Uriah Heep and "I Love Lucy" have in common , and what
do they have in common with sandwiches ??
I looked up and contacted the writer of the article, Lisa Miller of
Mansfield News Journal.
Turns out that the deli makes sandwiches that the patrons design,
someone has designed a "Uriah's Heep" sandwich, and the deli is
about an hour away from me
in Ohio. :-) Right Around the Corner so to speak !
Lisa explained what the article was about - my next step was to
contact the Deli about the Uriah Heep Sandwich !!
1st of all - just
what IS a Uriah's Heep Sandwich ?
"Uriah's Heep" is white bread, roast beef, American cheese,
black olives, jalapeno, mushroom, red onion, pickle and tomato with
Uriah's Heep - The Sandwich
Sounds Yummy !!
I contacted Susan Vander Maas
about the Deli, what they do , etc...
"Doc's "Soup-Herb" Deli serves high-quality deli sandwiches, soups,
and salads. Customers are invited to create and name their own
personal sandwich or salad creation which gets stored in the POS
system so the next time the customer visits, the recipe can be
pulled up and ready in no time. "
Pretty novel idea I
think - I'll HAVE to get there and order one soon !
Susan is a Die-hard Heepster from way back - she says:
|I discovered Uriah Heep when Demons and Wizards was
released . . .
I think I played that album until I wore out the grooves! My
favorite song was The Wizard, but I was blown away by every
song on that album . . . great lyrics and kickin' music.
Then came The Magician's Birthday and Sweet Freedom - WOW -
more amazing songwriting.
My secret dream was to be a musician and one day play on the
big stage, and Uriah Heep helped me visualize my dream. I
wanted to be a great keyboard player and I even had ideas
for theatrical stage shows.
Alas, like John Lennon said, "Life is what happens to you
while you are busy making other plans." So, 30 years later,
I still hold on to that dream.
My husband and I have a local band and the closest I've
gotten to realizing my dream was to open up for The Godz
this past summer at an outdoor benefit/party/hogroast. It
was great and everyone loved it when we played "STEALIN'"!!!!
Wherever we play, people always love that song. And I am
proud to play it !!
