"A good time was had by all"

The gig went great in Pittsburgh. Rocket Scientists played the" 3 Rivers Progressive Rock Festival" August 23rd or around there. Excellent theater and shows. California Guitar Trio was excellent I caught there show, Spock's Beard and the Flower Kings as well. A great time was had by all. A super festival of Progressive bands.

The food was wonderful, after sound check I went to the dressing room trailer and watched the closing ceremonies of he olympics while the kitchen staff cooked 'delicious' ribs and chicken. "Ohhh I ate goood!" No pictures of that... C'mon I was eatin'!

Look Ma! I got an award.

This is Heidi, she and I wrote a song together last year. She was very diligent in entering it in contests and such, turns out we got and award from Billboard . How nice, EXCELLENT persistance Heidi, thank you.

Heidi resides in NY, and we haven't met yet,... the magic of the internet, sending tracks and words via cyber space. "One day we'll have lunch Heidi!" and give congratulatory hugs.

Here's a picture of the award.

Always nice to have your music and songs appreciated and noticed. I consider it an honor even to be considered. It's nice to have this song of ours make the 'radar'.

It starts out with me on Stick, that's a nice touch. Well this gig is gonna be recorded so that's gonna be a blast of a gig.
C'mon down, join the fun, it's gonna be great!
