Lonely Guy Music

Lonely Guy Vol 2

I was a bachelor for 39 years. Pretty poor batting record relationship-wise. Back around the time Population 485 came out, my friend Gene burned a series of CDs for me to play on book tour. I recently uncovered one of them in a dusty corner. As you can see by the cover Gene chef’d up he’s a physical therapist, not a graphic designer. But you can also see he possesses a pitiless sense of humor.

Driving Into the Musical Ditch

One of my favorite parts of “Bootlegged at the Big Top” is when I forget to go to the chorus of “How Many Miles,” and instead dive right into the bridge. The way you hear the band shift gears, catch me, and then drive on is the very reason that you get that little speech from me at most shows, the one where I get into the difference between MUSICIANS and Guy Who Knows Some Chords. Thank you, Long Beds!

Bootlegged Thanks

Thanks for all the “Bootlegged” orders, folks. It’s a lo-fi and on-the-fly live recording of a show the Long Beds and I did at the Big Top. Includes some stories in between songs including the one about me drawing blood from Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) on behalf of Wayne Coyne (Flaming Lips) because, I…I…well, sometimes you gotta help the neighbors.
