Welcome To Concrete and Lots More (And Some Less)

Man, there are so many tapes to listen to. It's amazing to me sometimes to think just how much material I committed to cassette from 1988-1999. Hundreds of songs! Every time I pull out the old tub of cassettes out in the garage I seem to find something new. I also seem to not be able to find tapes of songs I really really want to remix. "The Danger That Can Drive You Home" and "Little Whirl" for instance. I know they exist 'cause I can remember seeing them not too long ago...somewhere. I figure I've lost the multi-tracks to perhaps a third of all the songs I've ever recorded and that includes probably at least half of everything I've done since 2000. It's a tragedy, I tell ya. But...oh well.

George, Garfield and I didn't practice this week. Lots of life got in the way.

Here's a little piece of trivia that startled me: A-Ha's "Take On Me" hit number one on the U.S. charts in...omg...1985! I can still watch that video over and over though I haven't seen it in probably a year now. Probably watch it tonight. 1985???

Glen Buxton died on this day 20 freakin' years ago. He was always one of my favorite guitarists. Very underrated.
