Florida Man

Album Trivia #2: Fixin' Ta Lernya, Don't Wanna Concernya!

I am, literally, a Florida Man (Song #6 on my album "gettin' deep"). Lifelong Florida resident, born and raised here. So I hope my fellow natives will let me get away…

Album Trivia #1 - It's YUUUUUGE!

Face-Melters Need Not Apply

Bad Hair Day, Good Guitar Day

I just reminded myself how excruciating it is to make a music video. It takes forever, but it is sorta fun. Just posted two of them on my video page. I will never…

Hey Gort, Hand Me That Face Mask!

The Year The Earth Stood Still

"Klaatu Birada Nikto". The famous phrase that commands Gort, the alien robot, to go out in search of more toilet paper and Purell. Lately, the 50s-era sci-fi classic The Day The Earth Stood Still…

Wh- Wh- Wh- Why, Corona?

This Is Not A Drill.  It's A Sledgehammer.

Multiple gigs --- OK, all of my gigs --- are cancelled due to Coronavirus. Damn. In truth, I cancelled many of them myself. This virus crisis is getting scary and I'm simply…
