   That's it for me folks. I'll see you late winter/early spring.
Working on New studio/audio/video and listening room here at the compound.
New album, "Are You With Me" in the oven. This record will be of magical, powerful
a rockin' social commentary on the current state of things. No holds barred. No stone
left unturned. No one is safe, nothing is sacred. Thanks for all the encouraging words
and supportive friendships we have formed this last season. Nov 2nd is my birthday.
How fitting that I will play my last gig of the season on that day? I'll be 57, born in 57.
That must mean something somewhere, I dunno. If nothing else, my trek to be the oldest
overnight success is within sight!

Thanks again.
