    Great to hear you back in the swing. Yesterday was a good day for yours truly as well: Two Church boots landed in my post from all the way from Down Undah.

    hey steve, life’s not all bad is it!
    logical positivisim, that’s the secret.
    well, one of ’em anyway.
    the olde ticker feels a bit strange
    where i had a couple of implants in it, but it seems to be working ok!
    nothing will deter me from my mission: get mega-huge record deal and usurp even the time being himself.
    uh-oh, fitfull episode over, er, about that chair?
    yer still the grooviest olde roca
    cheers for the thoughts bro.
    se ya soon,
    andy L.

    Would that all concerts could be that fulfilling, eh?
    Only with thirty times the ticket sales.
    Then again, would y’get so blase about it that the existential ennui would creep in and such successes would no longer be fulfilling?
    Y’canna win, man!

    Glad to hear the swedish gig was a huge rockin success. your post today radiates tranquility, contentedness. we’re happy for ya. you’re still a long way from being an olde washed up rocker, you know.

    haven’t had time to be happy to be back, but thanks for asking πŸ™‚ Was given just over a week to write this desert feature, to distill my time with the bedouin down to some sorta poetry, to capture their essence. Surprisingly enough, the ole muse kicks in when yer under the gun. Mimesis helped too. I think you’ll like this one. Oh, and check yer email when you get a chance, i fired off a couple cool camel pics. I’m telling ya, you’ve gotta try this sorta thing at least once. You could craft an entire album with the images it inspires. πŸ™‚

    Here’s hoping you guys rock copenhagen!

    Someone once told me “if your kids think you’re cool, you’re doing something wrong.”

    That true?

    The Church is much better now than they were in 1986. If the music press had bothered to cover the Church since 1992, they would be International superstars. An inadvertant but fantastic blend of Pink Floyd, U2, Radiohead and solo David Gilmour and even a bit of Syd Barrett.

    very happy to hear you happy
    and all ya all seem to have caught some sweet
    jittery scent
    spring has a funny way
    of being
    able to elevate the spirit
    (does that mean that red bull and jager really do give you wings?)
    I can’t resist….;)
    through the heady perfume of flowering things
    clovers with nectar and 4 leaves
    the promise of summer
    on bare feet with a tambourine
    beloved ones
    friends and family
    they lift us higher
    kind kindred refreshing the energy
    to rock on with all of your
    gifts of music
    played from the hearts very soul
    brings it on home
