"I've wandered a bit. My old guitar has been my constant companion and confidante for as long as I can remember. Old ghosts live inside her wooden shell and when the night is right she sings to me and whispers great tales of love and loss - of heroes and friends. Like a warm breeze I will roll your way from time to time with a new story from an old confidante. This train has no destination , it's just meant to roll.
Like shooting stars or songs on the all-night radio dial - Spirits of Hank Williams and The Carters, Ray Charles, The Allman Brothers, John Hiatt, Stevie Wonder, George Jones and Jethro Tull all float in the ethers and whisper and rage to me as spirits do.They invite and invoke their palletes of musical color into my hands and the music I make is with their blessing when it's good and their scorn when it's less."
