    Get a Gig and Lose it in 30 Minutes!

    Fair points here, and worth considering if applicable to any given band's situation and goals. You've not knocked my grinch hat off, though. It's stapled to my head.

    Get a Gig and Lose it in 30 Minutes!

    Not sure of your circumstances, but from the perspective of somebody who plays for a living...I'd pass on the gig for a few reasons. Unless the money is outrageous, once you factor in the time and effort of having an entire band learn 3 hours of holiday songs over the next few months...

    Zeppelin: Since I've Been Loving You

    A few years ago, a demo of my stuff made it across the desk/eardrums of Terry Manning through a mutual friend, and we had a phone conference about the possibility of working together at his studio in the Bahamas. I did some research beforehand, and found out that he'd engineered Zeppelin III...

    Congrats to Freddie King....goin' to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

    Always been my favorite guitarist, vocalist, and writer of all the "Three Kings." Actually, of all the bluesmen in general.
