May 28th “Best Kept Secret”

What a week and it’s still going.  I’ve got an acoustic gig out of town tonight and then drive even farther tomorrow for a Master Plan gig at a wedding in Pinehurst.  Weddings are a ton of fun to play.  Everybody is there to have a good time.  It’ll also be our first gig with our new guitar player and vocalist Chris Campbell.

It’s a country themed thing, so we  get to get our country on which is also a lot of fun.   Today’s song is a british rock inspired song, created when I put it on the british rock selection on my amp.

Jan 15th “Walking In Molasses”

Playing catch up with the songs again.   Time limitations from my gig yesterday (and golf outings I must admit) have put me behind.  However, I did get to take my house guest (Rob from Chicago) to play at Mimosa Hills which is his and my favorite course in the area.

Tomorrow will be my big workday to catch up and to record drums for the new Chris Cates & the Master Plan album with Jason Peeler.

“Walking in Molasses” is another heavy metal jammer.  It seems to be what was in my head this morning after a raucous jamfest last night at Bourbon Street in Hickory.  The words are about getting (or not getting) stuck in a rut.  I’m trying to go out more this year and not let work make me tired and homebodylike.
