Finishing Mustang Sally

Hoping to do some final mixes on “Mustang Sally” today. I worked on it all day yesterday and got it pretty close to what I wanted. Right now it just needs some final tweaking. Vocals are too loud, rhythm guitar is too low, and the lead guitar needs to be a hair louder. But all […]

Clearwater Sea Blues Festival 2010

Thanks to the good graces of Brother J. C. Rice, I got to go to the Clearwater Sea Blues Festival this year at Coachman Park, in Clearwater, Florida. I suspect J. C. had ulterior motives, in that he might’ve hoped that by inviting me and Wolf, our drummer, that we would steer the band in […]

American Terrorist, Joe Stack, Hailed as Hero in American ‘Patriot’ Resurgence

Only in America could people who wrap themselves in the flag and blather on about fighting a war against Terrorism applaud a Terrorist act when it’s committed by one of their own. If you haven’t heard, Joe Stack was a 53-year-old software engineer who crashed his small plane into an IRS building in Austin, Texas […]

TBT Soundcheck – Artist Of The Day

I’ve had the honor of being mentioned as the “Artist Of The Day” in the Tampa Bay Times’ online music blog, Soundcheck. The blurb was written by Jay Cridlin, who is a damned nice guy. Long story short, Jay noticed my name popping up on occasion, and looked a little closer, where he learned of […]

Republicans and Medicare: What You Need To Know About What They’re Up To

[The ever-reliable Paul Krugman posted an article at the NY Times (excerpted below) about the Republicans’ latest efforts to dismantle Medicare. It’s always amazed me that many of my elderly relatives who depend on Medicare faithfully vote Republican. To me, that’s like a chicken voting for a fox to be protector of the hen-house. – […]

Tiger Farms in China Feed Thirst for Parts

I don’t normally re-post information here, but since my Blog seems to have fallen by the wayside of late (my interests seem to lead me into posting in my other Blogs), this seemed like the perfect place to mention something that disturbs me on an almost primal level. It’s  the Chinese’s appetite for tiger parts. […]

Progress For The Pirates

We had a good rehearsal last night at Market On 7th, firing up the band as a 3-piece for the first time. We cut it a little short because J. C.’s arm was hurting (against his wishes), but it seemed better to call it than to exacerbate a problem. We’ll need J. C. in fighting form for […]

Catdaddy Pirates

My new band is officially up and running. I look forward to making a lot of noise in the Tampa Bay area with these boys. We have a hell of a lot of potential, and it looks like it’s going to be great fun in the company of gentlemen who already feel like family to […]
