Hello, all -- it's been awhile since the last update, but here's the latest:
I've recently started working with an incredibly talented keyboardist named David Howell. David just moved back to Marathon permanently after working with just about everyone under the sun. Dave and I have worked together in the past, and we've known each other forever -- we're calling it a musical partnership 20 years in the making! Dave will be helping out with keyboard and production duties on my upcoming CD. My studio will be put back together starting later this week, and I can't wait to get started!
Dave was instrumental in putting a band together for my appearance at this year's Bash at the Bridge, where I was the concert host and we performed all three nights. Kansas, Rick Derringer, Mark Farner, Edgar Winter, Cosmo, and Alto Reed were the headliners for the three day festival, and it was a real kick to be featured alongside these great musicians and bands. I'll upload photos soon.
And, finally, my political career is over for now, as my term as Mayor and City Council Member ended April 25th. The six years I served were an incredible experience, and somewhere in there a book is waiting to come out. If you get to the islands this summer, look me up! We'll share a tropical drink and hopefully a great time! Ciao for now!
