Sorry, but I"m having problems updating info on my website. We have a good mailing list for the area though, and I'm sure that will support attendance.
Maine? Good question.
Right now I'm battling Neurolyme, and getting out only occasionally. But we're hopeful that the treatment will be successful....and then.....New England is definitely on the list. I've never played in Maine, but if you have suggestions (as a local) of good gigs, I'd love to have that info as a form of forward thinking.
All the best
I do not live in the US anymore so I have not heard you in years but it's funny, one of the songs I still remember is the Bathtub Virgin. I was googling for it and see that someone else was asking about it! I would enjoy hearing it again if you can tell me where to find it. Thanks! Jeannie
Thanks for the reminder of BATHTUB VIRGIN. Songs go through cycles in my setlist, and that one has long been laying by the wayside. Time to pick it up again! It isn't a song I've recorded, so you'll just have to wait until we're on similar plots of the planet to hear it again.....live!
What makes me laugh? The unexpected, the miraculous, a timing that defies logic, a thought that surprises the brain, and the goofy, gangly, non-adultish.
Ticklish? Not so much. Do I love to tickle my son? Much.
Hi LJ, not really a question, more of a response to your answer on your recent battle... VERY SORRY to hear that! Hope your recovery goes quicker and is more thorough than you can imagine. Since I am now on your email list, I know we will be hearing good news at some point. Keep the faith! P.S. I attended a concert years ago at the Cultural Center in Cedarburg. I absolutely loved the whole evening. It was beyond wonderful! Loved, loved, loved all the songs, especially the one about your grandparents, as well as the couple who 'Blew the Carbon Out" from Chicago (hopefullly I have that right!). God Bless YOU! Shellie Olson
Thanks, Shelly. I'll be back. All the best to you and yours.
As you have seen, my website is quite outdated, and actually, was down for a couple years.
The challenge I'm working on isn't songs, right now. It's NeuroLyme. We're hoping that the treatments will help me recover, so I can come down and play the old neighborhood again. Cheers. LJ
I recently heard your song Boxelder (played by D. Wilcox). I thought that the bridge -- about using the tree to erect the Cross on Calvary -- was something the man from the county said to motivate you to want to cut it down. Is that incorrect? (I am not religious, so if there's a more obvious interpretation, it's escaping me). Thanks, Steve
Steve-- I"m not "religious" either.
Hemingway said (something like),"read purely for enjoyment". Whatever else you find will be the measure of what you brought to the reading".
I'm finishing grad school in the spring and will have more flex for touring.
Let me know your local gig spots so we get to meet.
Yes, I recorded it on an obscure compilation album years ago (American Coffeehouses, or something like that).
But no, not on an album of my own. Funny thing is, I've pulled it out and have been singing it again. I'd forgotten how much fun it is.
All the best
Thanks for the quick response! Good luck on your hip replacement recovery - I've had both of mine done. I think the hardest part is sleeping on your back! I'll share with you the most important thing my Doc told me - the body heals in 6 week increments. If you don't feel like it's going as fast you want, you should notice a significant improvement after 6 weeks, then 12 and so forth. I'll be damned if it wasn't true. It changed my whole outlook on the healing process.
Wish you the best and hope to see you on your feet IN Colorado soon.
Thanks for the info. I'll have to remember when it's six weeks
I'm up and hiking (1 to 2 miles) a day, in addition to general errands ans such, so I'm very
Happy (so far) with the results.
I'll keep you posted on the CO shows. The big news for me is that I'm starting to distill a new album.
I'm not in the studio yet, but I'm cleaning up songs and I'm starting to choose which will make it on (even
If they're not quite finished).
