When someone takes your work through inspiration it Vibrates at a higher level.
Art,consciousness, and awareness are all in good Karma when this happens.
I love magic

Right now is right now and right now I am “right nowing” it in Florence Alabama. Once again I have the privilege to hang out with my buddy Spooner Oldham.

He invited me to hang with him at a recording session with a buddy of his from the band “Igor’s Jazz Cowboys”. I love that name.

I arrived yesterday after a rainy drive from Birmingham. Spooner and I kicked it for the afternoon exchanging jokes and stories. I spent time reading his gold and platinum albums hung with love in the kitchen of his Alabama home.
Spooner and I share the same joy in bad jokes, and taking the story a bit to long looking for the oddities to poke fun at. Yesterday someone called (wrong #) and left a message with a request for swimming lessons. WE looked at each other with puzzlement when Spooner said “ Well, I could call her back and tell her to start by workin on floating”. Man that cracked me up.

Just a bit about Spooner. He has played on all my releases and produced the Ghetto Blaster EP. On the others you have heard him on “Creatures in the yard” , and “When I’m Loving you”.
Spooner was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland this year (I was there….epic), and the Musicians Hall of Fame last year for his work since the 60’s.
The thing about Spooner is that you know his work without even knowing it….
He is a legacy to all genres of music. With Collaborations including: Neil Young, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Percey Sledge, Wilson Picket, Janis Joplin, and many more. Spooner has co -written such songs as "I’m your puppet" and "a women left lonely". He is one of my biggest inspirations. (go to for more info)

It’s great to be in the studio with him. His laid back approach and dedication to quality is a wonderful lesson to any aspiring recording artist. He said to me in his yard yesterday about recording “Hold back a little, and let go a lot”. That’s Spooner in a nut shell.

We are about to wrap up the session here in a minute and probably get a lil Waffle House or Cracker Barrel. (two of Spooner’s Favorites)

Stuck in a Tornado

May 3rd 09 Birmingham AL

Stuck in a Tornado

Could the eye of a storm wink at me?
“Was that storm winking at me?”
I winked back, ran through a puddle and now find you more cyber then real……. But I know your out there.
I know your out there doing things. If a person is doing one thing in another place ,and you are not there to see them do it. Did they really do it.
In your reality the answer is NO.
But what does that mean?

It means that there is only moments of moments and that’s all reality is for us. There is nothing more, and nothing less.
So stop writing the illusion picture book in your head about what you should be , and just be.
You are a human … being. So just be. Be content . Why reach for something that is not there.
The Illusion of success, of what your "this and that" should look like, what your bank account should be up to.
That is not real. Only what is right in front of you is. This , the words you are reading. Not truth, Just real.

Love you guys

This weekend has been a blast. The Alabama Craw fish boil was a hit. I opened the show with Talking Heads “Psycho Killer” and Snoop ended it with Ironically “Burning down the house” (another talking house cover). Nice to be full circle.
I was able to catch Snoops show back stage...that was wild.

The night before Jason played. I was able to sit in with him. In front of about 20,000 we did “fall through glass” . Tawney and Trish Hula Hooped during, and I was so happy.
(This pic is crazy. I was 20 feet from the hoop but we are connected....thanks ladies. My hips are almost healed)

That many people in the crowd become a love sea that I plan to surf on one day.

I was so tired the whole weekend due to jet lag and not turning my phone off at night. But I actually napped in-between sets on Saturday. I got up in time for dinner and some handshakes and high fives with some other band mates. The rain never touched down during the festival, but as soon as it ended god said. “I NEED TO PEE” and is still going.

We just found out that a tornado touched down a town over and we all took shelter in a diner and had stakes of un-fulfilling pancakes.
(Nothing like the sexy cakes back home)

During the festival and this morning the sounds of Tornado sirens rang through town.

But the siren in my heart was heard by the Tornado and it replied. “Damn! I better find shelter”

More form the me later.
