View From The Stage  TimeView From The Stage Time


They say that there really is enough time in the day, and that all the time you have is all you really need. I dunno about that. I keep spinning like a compass that can't find North between the four musical bearings: writing, recording, rehearsal, and road. I just learned "Hoochie Coochie Man" by Mr. Willie Dixon and man! do I love that song! I can Hoochie Coochie all night. Give me a bottle of merlot and a box of "Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans" and I'm good to go for hours.

I've gotten such a strong reaction to Tom Petty's "Mary Jane" live (they were going nuts that night--albeit they were feeling no pain..) that I've learned "Breakdown". I hope everyone likes that as well. I get the chance to belt that out. Nothin? better (OK--the Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans come VERY close though).

As far a time goes, I've got the best of intentions, lots ?n lots of really good ideas, steeled ambition, song bits that have outstanding potential, a team that backs me and keeps me moving forward, and my best fans club'my children--the gmanBlues ankle biters. I've got the world of "indies", and the power tool of the Internet to bring good people together for a song. They say I've got the time to make it all real--God I hope so.

I'll bet you're no different than me. Too much to see and do, and not enough time. They say the universe, the balance and harmony of nature is perfection itself, and that time is a man made, self imposed concept. There is no time out in outer space you know. There is no day or night; there are no seasons, or years, or times zones. Time is not CONSTANT; even your watch would not run at the same rate in outer space. There really is Only now. Now is forever--figure that one out if you've got the time.

As for me I've got to get back to the Hoochie Coochie man and the espresso beans--I'm starting to slow down!

Peace and Love,
