One man,Jp Bob Prescott, more than anyone else, has influenced my ability to play music, taught me so much about everything, and saved my life, more than once. He has just been blessed with a Baby Daughter, Lucia, and his wife Caro are the proud parents, born onto this earth the same time as the sessions of June 2013 of my dream band "PLayers Together Improvising [with Heartbeat Hart Goetze, Dave Glutek,Kevin, Simon Point and Simon Finlay] were recording this song, dedicated with love To baby Lucia Prescott Hola dios te proteja! Your father and mother are great human beings, and their presence was greatly missed , and for the best reason of all -YOUR LIFE, PEACE CHILD :)
Progress report;Some Goals are tougher than others. Some have pratfalls and side trips. I am fortunate to have met and made music with or inspired by the most amazing people on earth. I created Joe Williams On Messenger /part of the hotmail/live chat persona In 2001 . I joined Facebook as Joe Williams in 2008 Joe Williams joined Reverbnation Nov 2011,to learn the networking (Social and computer networking end of this new music industry to support my friend, Simon Point, specifically here on reverbnation in his musical endeavor; "Overstop" Simon's band changed personnel however & I continued recording & posting here.) When it took off,I was blown away by your reaction, coming up on 40,000 songplays! Thank you all SO MUCH!-Now That I have your kind song plays and views, as some of you my know we (Hart Goetze William Taylor (Briefly Pet Curley)(Special Guest Rick Kobus)(Ken Custance Lyrical inspiration tech asst, and great guy) Created Corner Hardware as a homage to a life long dream of recording with friends I have known for over 20 years. I am proud to announce Hart Goetze on Drums with Simon Finlay on Bass and , [quite frankly any instrument he chooses], My Brother from another Ukranian Mother; Dave Glutek Keyboards Vocals and Humour Extraordinaire. We are asking Simon Point to drop in on us during the recordings. & We have a joint effort on another Page I created for World Peace , called "PLayers Together Improvising". This goes out to you, who ever reads this, to "PLAY-IT-FORWARD" Thats right you can Find a Song"Canada Day" that Corner Hardware recorded last Jan, and added Dave Glutek & my Piano jam tracks a few weeks ago and we are asking you to download it from Joe Williams 70 on Soundcloud , add your vocals spoken or sung, introduction and words for peace, and play it forward as a Monster Jam! Thats right ! "PLAY-IT-FORWARD" Means you upload the new version to soundcloud or anywhere so we can all hear it- resulting in many versions to support Multiculturalism and Tolerance and World Peace- Get it? I hope so. We need You Yo. Joe Williams Vancouver British Columbia Canada June 21 2013
