  • Bloody Guitar

    My wife had a small quilted bag that she used to carry her lunch to work every day. She dropped the bag in the driveway last week and a tempered glass bowl shattered into millions of shiny splinters. I suggested she throw away the bag because it was full of glass but she didn’t want…

  • Live Multitasking

    I had a gig playing at a local American Legion with my friends in Ride the Song. We were scheduled to be the entertainment for the men in the bar while their wives played a massive game of bingo. Unfortunately, there was a nail-biting Steelers game on the television at the same time. We played…

I am the youngest guy in the band and I’m no spring chicken. Being an aging wanna-be-rockstar is physically demanding. The American Legion…

  • Shaking Off the Rust on a Perfect Spring Day

    Last night I played some music with my friends in the band called Ride the Song. This was our first long set together since before the madness. It was good to shake off the rust. We had some minor hiccups but it was a great time. It’s always satisfying to play music with other people,…

  • Wild Game Feed

    Yesterday I played some music with my friends in Ride the Song. We’ve been playing music together in some form or capacity for 10 years. We always have fun jamming some classics. We were playing at a wild game potluck. To get in you had to bring some food. There was crawdad stew, venison pot…
