04/06/2003 Entry: "Written Entirely on my Palm Pilot, at Last Night's Gig"

I'm in Joshuas Tavern as I write. It's been snowing all day, and the drive down was quite fun. Actually, I made pretty good time. But I'm not looking forward to the drive home. Plus, I lose an hours sleep tonight.

Mikey is playing bass with us tonight. Mike's wife, Maggie, stayed home. She used to come to gigs frequently with Mike, but now that they are married, she rarely comes. It's too bad. She's a very sweet woman, and nice to talk with on breaks.

One strange thing about posting on a Palm Pilot--I don't know all the strokes for punctuation. In fact, I just learned the apostrophe (') tonight.

(45 minutes later...)

1st break. The smoke is killing me. I'm out in the truck. This place is always smokey. There were three times as many people here last night, but there's more smoke tonight. Pehaps decause they're keeping the doors ciosed due to the cold. And, because there are so few people, we're playing very quietly. It's very hard to groove well, and play quietly.

I should mention I thought of a cool band a week ago: Caddilac Sanchez and his Mowhawk Five. (Unless there are, in fact, five members in the band. Then it's the Mowhawk Seven.)

2nd break
1 drambuie. I haven't had one of these in a long time. SWEET!!! Very sweet. It's a long way from bourbon. I don't like it as much as I used to.

The Spice Girl is here tonight. Same outfit: tank top, even though it's cold out. She came in wearing a winter jacket and a friken' tank top.

Replies: 1 person has rocked the mic!

I have a Tama rosewood 6.5" from the 70's. IT's got small lugs, not the long ones, all the hardware is pitted...not beat up but not smooth. The shell is fine..I have no use for it..
E-mail me if you're interested.
