We’re finally getting some much-needed rain. It stormed pretty well up here in Asheville this morning. I’m back in town after winning my second golf tournament in a row, actually we came in 2nd, but we finished in the money which is always nice. Birchwood Golf Club in Nashville, NC is one fine course and group of people. Anyway, back to the rain. Can you guess what inspired this song?
March is rolling in and like clockwork we’ve got another winter weather advisory. I think I’ve mentioned that I’ve canceled four gigs already this year because of weather and it’s starting to get old.
Not to mention driving a ten thousand pound truck in the snow and ice. Actually that’s kind of fun.
“Spring in Asheville” is kind of recognizing a few good and bad things in the world today while wishing for spring at the same time. I really don’t hate the cold as much as I make it out in this song. I actually don’t mind it much.
Ah the wind, the recycler’s nightmare. I’m glad I got done with my route before the so called ‘blizzard’ set in. Currently, it is snowing but the wind is breaking it up to a flurry.
Anyway, I bet you guessed correctly that the weather is what inspired today’s song. Actually something Roland Dierauf was saying on WNCW is probably what got it going on.
Anyway, I abided by my usual format of writing the first thing that comes to mind and this is what popped out. It’s pretty silly (which seems to be a trend). I channeled my inner Kool & the Gang for the chorus.

I’m still running behind but I did write this yesterday. I didn’t get around to recording it until this morning. It took about an hour to record which is still a little longer than I would like to take but my drums are getting a lot better already.
I’ve played and recorded drums five times this week which is five times more than I played them all last year. This blog is definitely going to get my off instruments more tight.
“Good Liver” comes from something I misread on a medical flyer while recycling the other day. It turned into a funny song with a tragic message about that friend of yours who loves to party.
I finally broke out the distortion pedal on this one.
