#1: IF THE BLUES EVER ENDS Many musicians from unknowns like me to guys like Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan have been greatly influenced by the music we call the blues. I think it’s because the blues is life set to music. Simple music. There’s a magic about a 12 bar. It says what it […]

I could not believe my eyes when I opened my New York Times this morning and saw this: It’s an expensive double page ad for Canon. Now, the fact that Canon thought it was worthwhile buying this space to convey one of the oldest clichés in advertising – they don’t believe in ‘It can’t […]

They are the guys helping me put together my album after next…yes, I’m ahead of myself as usual. Next album should be ready soon…called THE STORY OF IT ALL. My producer/guitarist Jacy Oliver is adding finishing […]
Religion, that’s what. The unbelievable violence that ISIS dishes out in the name of its god is inhuman. But maybe the key to defeating these slaughterers is to use their god against them. I grew up in a period when the IRA was very active. I saw for myself the aftermath of two London bombings…the […]
