September 21st “Zoo Food”

I had a great time doing my recycling route with Mozart, my dog, today.   I haven’t tried that before and he’s actually a great truck companion.  I always envisioned that when I was thinking about getting a dog.

Before I wrote today’s song I was thinking about the people that handle the big cats at the MGM in Las Vegas.  Don’t ask me why.   Probably because I think that would be an ideal job for me.  Because my favorite thing in the world is petting my cats.   Thanks for listening!

May 24th “If Only I Was Here Right Now”

This is my favorite time of year.  The NBA Playoffs.   I retire to my studio in late at night to do my songs and while watching grown men do battle on the hardwood.   I have a huge advantage in watching the games because I tend to pull for the team with the ball.  So I’m always  a winner.    If only it were that easy in all aspects in life.

The title of today’s song came somewhere on my recycling route today.   I was listening to Andrew Jackson’s biography but I definitely don’t think it came from there.   Thanks for listening.

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.
