The One Escape…a new lyric

Posted: April 8, 2019

This song is endless.

I could have written a hundred verses and still not run out of things to say. With a humble tip of the hat to Dylan’s A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall here is An American Dream :

So it goes…

At some point during the production of each of my last three albums I said it would be my last. But none of them were. Because this always happens. Inspired by the thrill of making music with great players I start writing again as soon as each project is recorded. In times past I might […]

The age we live in.

As always, approaching a birthday tends to make one evaluate things. For quite some time I thought there were no benefits to aging. But recently I’ve developed a different point of view on a couple of topics. First, driving. Yes, it seems an odd subject. But when I think back I am so pleased I […]

A new lyric inspired by memories of being young in the 60s

Lucky shots…

Of all the photos I’ve taken in London over the years this is my favorite. Somehow that bird represented freedom from the bureaucracy symbolized by that building.

Passing it on…

When I moved from Santa Fe to Portland I gave up my custom-built recording studio. Only thing I miss about the place, being honest. I transported all my gear here and watched as it sat in a garage and then in one side of my live/work apartment. I always told myself I’d get it all […]

I had some dreams. Then I dreamed a song about them.

A survivor.

If memory serves me well, I have now had this guitar for 50 years. I think I was 16 when I bought it (with help I’m sure from my parents). I remember the shop that sold it to me and the excitement of walking out with the best guitar I’d ever had up to that […]

Is there a word that could change your life?

Posted: January 21, 2019

After years and years and years of examining this question, I think there is. It seems to me that the root of so many problems is one word: insensitivity. Not being aware of the effect you have on others. Think about it. I like to think I have and I like to think it has […]

All in a good cause, I hope.

I am not sure if it is a direct consequence of age or more a subtle shift associated with the changed points of view that age enables. Either way, I have been actively decluttering my life for some time now. Today I parted company with boxfuls of books that at one time I would have […]

Potentially a new song about an old problem.

Posted: January 7, 2019

Clearly not inspired by any recent events, I think this song is based on a theoretical concept I may or may not have experienced as a young man. Can sex make a relationship worse rather than better? I’ll leave it at that, other than to say this is one of those lyrics that was born […]
