  • The Kindle version of my novel about some Pearl Jam fans, State of Love & Trust, is free for the next few days on Amazon as I celebrate the launch of my most recent novel (which isn't PJ related so I won't go into detail here.) https://www.amaz…
  • Thursday, August 17 marks one year since the debut of my novel, State of Love & Trust. To celebrate, the Kindle version will be downloadable for FREE for two days only, August 17 & 18, at the link below. If you don't have a Kindle, you can d…
  • Lost, but it was worth trying. I still have GA for Wrigley night 2.
  • I had always wanted to learn, but it was My Morning Jacket that finally got me to pick up a guitar and do it. I still use Dancefloors as my "warm up" song. The most recent song I learned was Magheetah. RUSH, never seen or heard a band where ALL the…
  • I've done NaNoWrimo every year (and "won" by writing 50,000+ words) since 2007. I also write novels just as a hobby, but there are few things as fun for me as NaNo. Anyone who is interested in NaNo, I encourage you to try it. I will be publishing o…
  • I was at this show. I wonder if the author does not normally attend Bonnaroo, because he's complaining about an experience that is normal for that festival. You can get on the rail for a headliner if you really sacrifice and skip other shows, but th…
  • I want to know the set list like I want to be told the end. Terrible idea.
  • I looked at your guitar and immediately thought of Johnny Winter. I had the great good fortune to see him live and up close at the Mystic Music Festival in CT 19 days before he died. He was playing something very similar and I loved its sort of prim…

  • Mine came with the Expression pedal but I haven't tried that part yet. Dewie, I have to ask because of your avatar; are you a fan of MMJ? I love them!

  • When printing them out I use a Case-It zippered ring binder with tabs (literal folder tabs, not guitar tabs) and arrange them alphabetically by artist then within each artist's section they're alphabetical by song title. The Case-It has a handle and…
  • I have a vintage Electra MPC Les Paul (X330) and I really want some more MPC modules for it. These are effects that work like a stomp box, but they're resident inside the guitar and can be switched out. My guitar came with two (Phase Shifter & P…
  • I love my Taylors! I always had a really high opinion of Martins--Neil Young plays them--but my guitar teacher is pretty down on them and says they're not what they're cracked up to be anymore. I don't know if he's right, but I've yet to go wrong de…
  • There are few people more obnoxious than those who deem themselves the Shirt Police and demand anyone wearing a band (or sports team, or movie themed) shirt answer their self-important pop quiz. While I don't personally wear band shirts for bands I …
  • Since no one else has mentioned it, it might not be your strings that are the problem. It may be that the action on your acoustic is set too high. Any decent guitar shop should be able to adjust that for you. So if you don't get any relief after try…
  • I agree that you shouldn't buy anything without playing it first. For added peace of mind, bring along a guitar expert for guidance/affirmation (not the salesperson). Used guitars can be great. I just got a good deal on a '78 Electra MPC X330 and am…
  • I lost the lottery. I really wanted 4 tickets so I could finally take my kids (17 &13 and they love Pearl Jam almost as much as I do). Then yesterday my boss decided to schedule me for a business trip to Florida that runs Oct 12-16. I was real…
  • LIKE. I absolutely love the lottery. It was zero stress compared to the repeated time-outs of an overwhelmed server, which does not function as first-come, first-serve anyway since you can get there first and time out. I got Vic tickets the old w…

  • We're all just visiting, all just breakin' like waves. YFC represent!
  • Target is not anti-gay, and they have apologized. The donation was a public relation debacle for them. Remember, Target had an entire Isaac Mizrahi line a few years ago.

  • In Hiding, Chicago Vic Theater, Aug 2, 2007.
  • My son gave me the little wooden Yield sign from his Thomas The Tank Engine train set. It lives on my desk.
  • I got mine today (in Michigan) but I just came back from Bonnaroo so I'm not sure what day it arrived. I haven't listened to it yet. It has to get in line behind the My Morning Jacket Chocolate & Ice vinyl EP I picked up at Ear-Xtacy in Louisvil…

  • Baby Darling Dollface Honey is a great album. I've been surprised that Band of Skulls hasn't received more press and doesn't seem to be playing the festivals so far. I was hoping they'd be at Bonnaroo.
  • A fellow PJ fan introduced me to MMJ a few years ago and I've been in love ever since. I saw them in Detroit in '08, then saw Monsters of Folk (Jim James supergroup) twice in November, then saw Jim James solo at the Seelbach in Louisville on Valenti…
