Was in New Orleans with a dear friend...a prominent chef from the French Quarter. Yummmmm! Cornbread stuffing and gravy defines Thanksgiving dinner for me. I'm not to good with recipes...I wing it.
Multiple places, in this order:
1. In the arms of my love.
I almost always drive...30,000 miles since August of this year.
Knowing me, if some big change or emotional event goes down, I'll pierce or shave or ink something. I'd like to do a mohawk one day.
! have two...my first one is a '65 pre-Gibson round neck that I modified to play on my lap...to the detriment of the guitar. It's now being restored to be played regularly. I got it in Austin 10 years ago at SXSW. Then I got an incredible deal on a Regal square neck last year in Jackson, MS. I can't continue to beat up the old one the way I did...I guess that makes it the favorite.
Can't wait! As soon as possible!!! I'm thinking St. Thomas for starters...
Solo is most familiar & probably what I'm best at right now. But I love getting the chance to be onstage with others, and I'd like to do more of that going forward. Danielle Howle got up w/me in Charleston recently...changed my life. At the Blackswoods Music Festival last month, Kenny Liner & I debuted our duo project. Got to sit in with Mookie Siegel & Chris Jacobs, and The Jackmormons, too...an absolute joy & a privilege.
For my next Rockies tour (Jan. '12), I'll be joined by an extraordinary drummer - Zechariah Lloyd Tillotson from Oxford, MS. There have been times onstage with him when I was crying tears of joy song after song. He's incomparable in terms of the passion & musicality he brings to what I do.
Then there's my first drummer, Craig Santiago - in Woodstock. We hope to work together again soon. He's a genius, a master & utterly unique in his style & groove.
I also love playing with drummer Brad Gunyon in Brooklyn. He is so exciting & punctuates things in a spectacular way.
