Gee , in 1968 I was in the TET offensive. In 1969 I was at Woodstock. What a trip. Guess that makes me a dinosaur. Yep.
"Oh , Senora" is about a desperate love I had for a beautiful Latina. Hope I didn't screw up the Spanish too bad.
"Durango" is a dreamlike song about the Mexican Revolution and ghost soldiers etc.
"Big Business"..... I will let you figure that out.
Rock with a Latin influence , a little Howlin' Wolf thrown in sometimes , one ballad.
Something maybe a little different.
More to come , a little world beat and other things.
I have been playing music a long time ,many different kinds of music. I am always trying to blend different styles together.
This is the first bit of an upcoming whole cd. Hope you like it.
Trivia: I met Johny Cash in Nashville about 1971. Shook his hand, "Howdy boys ". The most imposing and a little intimidating
person I have met. A true genius.Never afraid to tell it like it is. Shook hands with John Lee Hooker and Muddy Waters.
Something I am grateful for. Never met Doug Sahm , saw the Quintet once.
Worst gigs: Ones I didn't get paid for.
Martie Romie plays bass on "Big Business" . Thanks Martie !
I played everything else for better or worse.
I am going to try io get more people involved in the rest of the cd. Hopefully Jonell Mosser , Bonnie Raitt, and the rhythm section for the GREAT Columbian singer Juanes.
Well ........... that's probably not going to happen. Huh
Peace and common sense to all.
