These Boots Were Made For Walking

These Boots Were Made For Walking

We were doing some gigs as a jazz quintet. We had only been together for a couple of months, still trying to feel one another out. As we went along, the realization came: Harry, our lead singer, liked to imbibe; a lot. Harry didn’t play an instrument, but had an...

Perspective Is A Super Power

Perspective Is A Super Power

What if I could just go back and do it over? The age old concept of being smarter at a younger age. I guess that brings up being regretful for previous actions and decisions. Some of the undertakings and determinations I have made require contriteness. Feelings of...

Seven Considerations For Working With A Band

Seven Considerations For Working With A Band

Is there respect? Am I receiving the accreditation I deserve? Is there reciprocation? Level of commitment? What are the goals? Is the band a social club, which is fine, if that’s the definition of the band. Does it match my expectations? Environment. Do you feel...
Goals

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Yep, lent a drum throne to a one my drummer friends. Never saw it again. Hey man, that ain’t a book, it’s a drum throne; it has importance and a purpose. Drove the band across state, did any one offer to help with gas? Booked the gig, provided the P.A.,...
Where Was I ?

Brain Damaged

Brain Damaged

I’m not sure what I did. Rumor has it, as an infant, I was dropped on my head. I don’t know, I can’t remember. Perhaps my amygdala smashed in to my hippocampus, resulting in memory loss. Could have been the drugs or maybe my continuing love of...
