Audrey Hepburn and vinyl.  Does it get any better than this?  No, probably not.

This dude has gotta be the poster child for the Unsung Hero.  What a rhythm guitar player.  What a band member.  What a rock.  I’m thinking about you Malcolm and I’m sending good thoughts your way.  
Don’t need reasonDon’t need rhymeAin’t nothin’ that I’d rather do…

Read a chapter from Amanda Petrusich’s forthcoming book Do Not Sell at Any Price that chronicles the life of legendary record collector Harry Smith and his mythical opus, The Anthology of American Folk Music.

This looks awesome.

March, 1997.  Hollywood, CA.  It’s a photo shoot for my band, Hair Of The Dog, with our good pal Neil Zlozower.  This is me takin’ Zloz for a ride on the ol’ Night Train. And, honestly, pouring it down throats was about the only way I could ever get anybody else to drink it with me.  Post-swig, I can still hear Zloz in his signature throaty rasp, "Jesus Johnny, how do you drink that nasty shit?  Gimme another Mickey’s."  Good times.  Good friends.  Cheap booze.  It doesn’t get any better.

Amen to this photo.  I know it probably makes me seem totally old and uncool, but this is the only way I know how to roll. My phone stays in the car because I prefer to live in the face-to-face moment.  I don’t need to be anywhere else, except right where I am.  Listening.  Engaged.  And grateful for those I’m with.  Period.

Check out this killer Michael Jackson “Beat It” demo.  It’s an awesome listen.  It’s also a cool behind-the-scenes look at how he wrote and arranged using only his voice; this, the direct result of having limited abilities on other instruments.  Gotta say, it would’ve been sweet to hear him scat sing Eddie’s solo.  However, it’s still amazing and brilliant and fully rad nonetheless.

You wanna stay alive
Better do what you can

So beat it, just beat it…

That was a great time, the summer of ‘71… I can’t remember it, but I’ll never forget it.
