May 30 “Love Rockets Over the Red Sea”

Our show at Pinehurst last night turned out to be a blast.  We had some issues getting there and getting home but we made it safe and sound at least.   Playing wedding gigs is always a lot of fun because it’s such a joyous occasion.   I played mandolin on about ten songs which I haven’t done in years.   Pinewild Country Club looked pretty nice and I’ve heard that it’s a good track as well.

Today’s song  is based on an old song I wrote when I was a governer’s page in Raleigh one week back in high school.  I remember spending most of my time reading Frank Zappa’s autobiography.

May 18th “Rest”

Today’s song is called “Rest” and I guess you could call it a fantasy on my part.   My motto is “if I’m awake I’m working”.   That’s basically how it has to be to get all of the things I do done.   And I still don’t have quite the time I need.   I sleep six hours a night which usually works out okay, it’s just that every few weeks I’ve got to really try and sleep a long time to catch up.   But I usually just lay and bed and think about all of the stuff I need to do..  Oh well.  I’ll live vicariously through this song.

I’ll post the song when I get back to Asheville Wednesday.  Thanks for listening.
