Today would have been my mother's 85th birthday. But the passing of time only affects those of us left behind.

Iconic? Er…not so much.

Is it just me? Given the circumstances of how this building became necessary…given the emotions connected to the site and what used to be there…given its place in American history…given that it is now, officially, the most expensive office tower in the world…shouldn't 1 Trade Center look better than this? And shouldn't it have been […]

Un-American Americans

Posted: January 24, 2012

I know we live in a global marketplace. I am not anti-business. BUT there are limits. Tonight President Obama in his State Of The Union address used General Motors as the best example of how his policy of bailing out the American auto industry has worked, saving thousands of jobs. GM, he pointed out, is […]

A listener in Peru said… “ He reminded me to Roy Orbinson!!!!! ” I wish. Dear old Roy – still miss him. And I am so far from meriting that comparison. But nice to know my music is getting listened to in Peru! My Jango channel: Go

"I articulate the deepest-felt values of the American people." – Newt Gingrich. No, sir, you do not. You are a liar, an adulterer, a racist and represent all that America has managed to overcome in the past 50 years. We will not go backwards under the guidance of fakes such as you. You, Newt, are […]

Somewhere in your heart of hearts…

  I wrote this song in just a few minutes after hearing that most of the Occupy camps are now things of the past. And my good friend Doug Biro (Hudson River Films) immediately offered the help of one of his talented editors, Josh Schwartz, to put together this video of newsreel footage. It really […]

An odd song from a dream

Posted: January 6, 2012

It's very rare that I remember my dreams. But last night – or rather this morning – I not only remembered my dream but a song that was a part of it. I was in a bar. I was seeing it all from the point of view of someone who was very, very drunk. But […]

2001:A Space Odyssey. A movie released in 1969, set far in the future…2001, the true millenium. A year that is about to become (or has already become if you live on the other side of the earth) eleven years in the past! And yet it's still one of the greatest cinematic experiences you can have. […]

Jokerman dance….

Posted: December 29, 2011

On March 22nd, 1984 I was still living in England and, because we had no idea back then who Dave Letterman was, I missed this.  What an amazing performance. Even Dylan having to hunt around for a harmonica in the right key does not damage this blistering renditon of one of Dylan's finest songs. He […]
