John Ball Lightning.- TRM. "Blue Lightning" / Bio

A Reality Blues Site. Established by the author and musician, John Rhymer, also known as John Ball Lightning or The Rhymer Man to his musician friends. Many of whom in jam sessions together, played on these tracks.
Passionate about all creation and the welfare of all creatures great and small.
Trying to raise awareness in many ways, through music riddle and rhyme and the writings of TRM.
Quirky perhaps to many, especially my sense of humour.
'Off world at times, searching for enlightenment, that often reveals much indeed in the quest for answers for this world
“So things aint always what they seem, on this road between”
' For all things here may simply be, a cosmic twilight dream”

Peace and Goodwill to all creatures great and small.
'Shine the Light' and make a difference' John Rhymer. TRM.

TRM “Blue Lightning” Represents a group of seasoned creative musicians who as close friends came together along the way to jam and share their talents with me in the studio. We all share the common bond of a love of music that stems from the root of Blues & R&R. Some still gig & belong to bands and some have at the moment no band to call home if you like. Whatever – here are some of the original TRM tracks that these folks embellished with their unique talents.
‘Nomad’ would be a good name for some of these musicians who have played here there & everywhere in their travels on the great journey through life.
“Nomad”? Well – sane as one can be as a musician I suppose these days.
So I figure this band is ‘Out In The Desert’ if you like, in more ways than one.
“Salutations” to them all for ‘The Drink of Water”
The Rhymer Man. John Ball Lightning. 'Musicians Raising Awareness' for all creatures great & small in a world that needs to wake up to Reality.
