AN AMERICAN POEM   There is no Superman Crusader against crime Swooping down to save you Just in the nick of time   There is no Superman No hero made of steel Our fantasies are frail Our loneliness is real   There is no Superman In his bight red cape No one to stop the […]

Into the light…

Posted: August 26, 2020

Okay, I know I should be ruthlessly promoting my new album, Looking at Life, but hearing Joe Biden’s uplifting speech recently I couldn’t help but be reminded of this song I wrote back in 2012. Called Harvesting Light (from the album Beneath a Flagless Moon) it has to be one of the most positive lyrics […]

More? Yes. Sorry.

I have just completed a new book of poetry. No, not that new book, a new new book. I know Of Which We Have Spoken has only been available for a short time but the global pandemic gave me not only the time but also the inclination to write. The result is RIGHTING: The Pandemic […]

My new album Looking At Life is now in final production. It will be available as downloads, on CD and as a Limited Edition vinyl album in a gatefold sleeve.

Eric Weissberg

Posted: March 24, 2020

You may have known him, as millions did, from the tune Dueling Banjos featured in the movie Deliverance. Or you may remember him and his band Deliverance being associated with Bob Dylan’s masterpiece Blood On The Tracks. Sad news today of the passing of Eric Weissberg at age 80. My connection to Eric was a […]
