Back from NYC!

Just got back from NYC ...played a great gig there! The Michael j Fox fund raiser for PD..the band was Steve Jordan's Super Soul Banned Experience...great horn section and Steve on drums, Willie Weeks on bass, the phenomenal Isaiah Sharkey, guitar, the absolutely brilliant Mix Master Mike on wheels of steel...awesome! Oh, and me on guitar as well! We played some serious funk and backed up Paul Simon on 3 tunes along with his guy, Mark Stuart...freaken brilliant!

My latest sweetie!

A new Fender Cabronita!

I love LA!

So nice to be in LA writing with my pal Patrick Droney..and playing a gig with Steve Postell at Witzend in Venice Saturday night....yeah!

A night of Telecaster madness!

Great gig coming up! Us 3 Telecaster players are doing 2 nights at Iridium, NYC ...sept 25, 26.. That's Jim Weider, GE Smith and myself, playing some rock n roll and some blues and some R & B...gonna be fun!

Cant wait for this reecord to come out!

Where do these people come from?...I've met some young musicians that are so astoundingly brilliant that I have new faith in the future of music...starting with my writing partner Patrick Downey..writer, singer and guitar player of astounding maturity and brilliance...Josh Freese...off the chain on drums but also a composer, guitar player ....Tal Wilkinfeld..genius level bass player but also an extraordinary song writer and singer...just to be good at ONE of these skills takes a lifetime...plus Hunter Hays, Blake Mills, who is absolutely great...wait til his record comes out!... People who love music, heads up! There's great musicians out there that you need to discover and support...find them and love them!!

Some new blog info!

Working hard and having fun!

Hey! Just spent a productive week in LA writing with Patrick Droney... Remember that name 'cause he's full on great! Gonna do some mixing for my long awaited ( ha!) solo album with Jim Chapdelaine, a gig at black eyes Sally's in Hartford May 24, then more with Patrick... It's so great to work in music you love!

Jamming at the Cinema Bar in LA!

Really big fun jamming out with Steve Postell and co. at the Cinema Bar in LA! Especially my dear pal Bob Glaub on bass...none better!

Great New Year!

Had a great new year in LA.. Saw some old and dear friends, including my pal Jackson Browne and guitar brother Waddy Wachtel! Also got to jam a bit with the excellent Steve Postell...now it's back to work on my album!

High School memory lane!

Nice to see some folks from my high school.. Mamaroneck High, come out to a couple of gigs.. Still can't believe I actually graduated (just barely) if any if you alums are out there, does anyone remember Duke Schirmer.. Best teacher ever!
