August 18th “Life C.O.D.”

Tough day recycling in the heat once again. When is this summer gonna end?  I’m ready to write some songs about the fall, my favorite time of year.  I put out a concept album back in the day called ‘Fall’.  One of my many cassette only releases.  It was inspired by Bob Dylan’s ‘Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid’ Soundtrack.  That is a great record.

Anyway, this song is kind of funky and probably not one of my best.  Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

Feb 27 “Thank You Carlos Santana”

Driving home the other night after the Trey concert I pulled some Santana up and jammed it loud to keep me awake.   I guess that’s where inspiration for this song came from.

Santana used to be my absolute favorite and still is up there near the top with me.   I wish I could see his show in Vegas this year.  That would be awesome.   I’ve seen him three times, one of which was with Bob Dylan.

If you’re a Santana fan, “Lotus” his live album from Japan is the very best!  He also has  a crazy concert with John McLaughlin that’s pretty intense too, although it’s mostly just shredding and not much else.  His DVD with Trey is similar and good for a watch.
