05.14.2015 – Pickles – Watauga, TX

Man, how does Keller have so much traffic? That’s what comes to mind first as I reflect on our show at Pickles this past Thursday! GPS said it was a quick drive… GPS didn’t factor in traffic. While Watauga is a fine area, I see why I don’t go over…

That ol' Pitmaster Tex kept drinking my beer!

You all know how I feel about fests… I love them! That being said, and considering the number of them that we’ve played over the years, there’s not a whole lot to report on this one. It was a great day, set went fine, no real issues… although, there was…

The Life and Times of Little Richard (The Quasar of Rock) by Charles White

Oh, where to start? I bought this one on a tip from John Waters and it’s fair to say that he delivered! I’m not one for reading printed books (I prefer Kindle), but I found a copy on Amazon for a penny… I figured that, if it was boring, I…
