was a very special night and show for me...
of all, the important thing is that we managed to raise some
money for www.blueslab.org, a
great organization that provides instruments to kids...(I
told ya Dane!) A major thanks to all who attended and contributed to
I had an incredible group of musicians and friends onstage with me
that night...Train's producer, Curtis
Mathewson (P) on Guitar,
Dread Zeppelin's Howard
on Bass, Fiona Apple's Joe
Simon on Keyboards and Equbud Mot on Percussion (P)....a HUGE
thanks to them for making me sound so good...Also, thanks to Chip
Moreland , Paul Edwards, Vicky
Hamilton, and Rusty Anderson for coming by to lend their moral
we only had ONE full band rehearsal, (Whew!), It
felt so amazing to share the stage with these great musicians...I
especially enjoyed playing "the avenging
angel of sierra leone" (Too many chord changes...Doh!),
you come back to me" (Django look out!), and Into
the Strange with Curtis on guitar, the only song we performed
that he and I share writing credit on...
was the first time in ages that Howard, Curtis and I played
together and I want to thank them especially for kicking in to a
I forget, the night also marked the debut of the "Electrified
Chair of screamin' wonder and redemption!" Thanks to artist
Nina Loizos for designing the chair with me.
I hope to have some live recordings
from the night posted in MUSIC very soon...
