I’ve been spending most of today reading music contracts.  This is possibly the most hated thing I have to do.  Contracts and lawyers.  For me, it’s worse than taxes.  Anything that involves legal garbage that is thrust upon us in these united states.  AAAAAGGGGHHHHHHH!

What does this have to do with lost heroes? more »

And few noticed.  Which is really a shame.  He had a big impact on my life.  Made me laugh.  Made me scratch my head in disbelief.  He was a great guy and I will miss him greatly. more »

Throughout my forays in music there have been times when a musician who plays a particular instrument is not easy to find.  No amount of posting or reading ads reveals a solid candidate.  That’s how I switched from a focus on drums to guitar in high school.  There were many drummers, few guitar players.  15 years later it was a drummer who was difficult to find.  Enter our trusted mate Rollie. more »

I’m still kicking.  With the end of summer the garden has been put to sleep which is going to allow more time for other things like music!  It’s been a busy summer for a lot of reasons.  Even though it’s a terrible time to be needing a vehicle we found one we could easily afford, a 2010 Ford Explorer.  It’s the last year of this body style, one of my all time fav vehicles, and I’m very happy to have it.  Other much needed things were accomplished as well.

Quite a while.  

So here’s a general update.

Blackout Tuesday, June 2, 2020.  A loose summation from wikipedia: a collective action to protest racism and police brutality, originally organized within the music industry in response to the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor. Businesses taking part were encouraged to abstain from releasing music and other business operations.

I can’t emphasize the word STUPID enough! more »

I maintain a facebook (fb) profile NOT because I use it, but because some people insist on only communicating through facebook.  That’s not intended to be an insult either, just the reality of things.  I have long talked about deleting it and I probably should except for those messages and the rare opportunity that recently came up.

I was nominated by a close friend to name 10 albums that have influenced my musical taste and upbringing.  And during this covid haze of boredom I thought sure I’ll play along.  For those who don’t do fb (good for you!) here’s a summation without friend comments. more »
