Music means to me:Everything. The nights I spent front row in front of Jerry are burned like fire into my mind. I spent way more nights between the 10-30th row in front of Phil. Music helps keep me sane and is my true release. Therapy can be really hard on your mind, but playing live literally keeps me emotionally well. music is everything to me. When I read the words of Bob Dylan or Townes Van Zant I am transpoted to mystical worlds. I also love Ryan Adams. he is a genius and I hope he can chill out and live a little while longer

Townes Van Nandt. If you ain't heard him yet websearch his name and listen up. Then rent or buy the film "Be here to love me today" It's doumentary where like 20 great musicians agree with what Steve Early said best "TVZ is the best songwriter in the whole world and I'll stand naked on Bob Dylan's coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that"

Little Big Man (the movie is good, book is great)
