Holy crap it’s March 2013 already!!

Wow… has it really been four months since I blogged something?! Damn. I apologize for that… there are so many other places where I reach people in snippets (Facebook *cough cough*) that I tend to forget about blogging. I will try to be more diligent about it in the future, but I can’t guarantee anything. lol…

Well, in case you haven’t been paying attention (does anyone actually read this stuff, I wonder?), the kickstarter for my solo album was a great success and the album has been out in the world for nearly three months now, making people happy, gathering some nice reviews… which is great! In fact it’s sooo out in the world that it’s been pirated, bootlegged, and torrented all over the place – which is kind of cool – but not really. That doesn’t help pay for groceries or strings. So, I think I may add a “buy me a beer” or “guilty conscience” PayPal button so folks who obtained the album by naughty means can toss a few bucks my way. Then they’ll be able to get into heaven. People always offer to buy me drinks at gigs, maybe they’ll want to help keep the music coming by paying something when they can. That would be really helpful.

In any case, a few things have been going on with me and my muse I want to talk about, so check back in a bit and I’ll make an earnest effort to fill you in. It’s all music and guitar related, don’t worry, but I want to compose my thoughts a little more thoroughly before putting it out there. It’s all good! In fact there is a happy ending, or new beginning, depending on how you look at it. It’s a good story! You’ll see.

I just wanted to let folks know that I haven’t run off to Argentina with the kickstarter money! lol… and yes, there are a few reward perks I still need to fulfill, but everyone got their discs and downloads, so that’s the most important thing. I got into a discussion just today with a buddy who reminded me, oh yeah.. blogs!

So once again, my sincere thanks to all of you who helped get the album out into the world – you guys are the greatest! I will update you on my recent trials and tribulations shortly. And, for those of you who would like to get an official copy and haven’t seen the front page of the site, you can now purchase a legitimate copy of In My Dreams I Can Fly at any time. Thanks to everyone who has purchased an authorized copy!

ps#1: Happy St. Patrick’s Day to my Irish pals! You know, it has crossed my mind that being born on Dec. 18th… well, you do the math. lol… say no more!

ps#2: Speaking of born on… Alvin Lee (b. Dec. 19th), one of my favorite guitarists and early inspirations, passed away on March 6th, only 68 years old. Sad. Thanks for the music Alvin. See you on the other side.

ps#3: Spring is right around the corner! Hoo-fucking-ray. I am so sick of winter it isn’t even funny. Come on, Summer!!

ps#4: I figured out how to justify text here! Excellent Smithers. Release the hounds.
