Go Ahead, Show Off a Little...

Here's the bulletin board/virtual refrigerator door/etc. for showing and telling about accomplishments you're proud of. Your art. Your graduation. Your promotion. The garden you just planted. Your kid's karate trophy. You get the idea...

Please still rant here Gonzo

as well as anywhere else you chose! Being silent accepting sheep and not discussing hot topics is NOT how we change the world!

Nice article by your Dad, Ms. Lilly

Maybe I should move my rants in current events to this blog-site. Too many uncomfortable on this site with anything controversial.

Heynow, son Simon married his sweetheart Jody

this weekend.
An outdoor affair, and their recessional was "I want to hold your hand" by the Beatles
and I wept tears of joy
and then we partied with friends and family.

A grate night.

They Love Each Other!

yeah...

I was really surprised, having done about 82 gazillion interviews with all kinds of people over the last 30 years, how easy and comfortable he was to talk to. This is one of my faves that I've ever done.

One of the things he had to say is that he and Jack got to talking recently and realized they'd been playing for 53 years, and how many people are there that have not only spent their lives on one job, but one job they loved?

Thanks for sharing your ear to ear grin with us Marye....I was fortunate to have shared a few words with Mr. K. after a show at the beautiful Mt. Baker Theatre(where I work as an usher)up here in Bellingham,WA. He was on a tour featuring the 'Blues Guitar' with Robben Ford and Ruthie Foster. They each played solo sets and then traded licks in various combinations. I waited till the crowd got done with him after the show in the hope of asking how best to obtain a copy of 'Electric Hot Tuna....Live at the New Orleans'....Jorma was very kind and such an 'easy talker'....

P.S. It was so good to see and hear him playing with Jack Cassady at 'Furthur Fest' in May....

the recording

is not the best audio, unfortunately. Good enough to transcribe from, but not what you'd call broadcast quality. Still, we'll see what we can do.
