hello friends! i hope you're all having a great day and time in your life. really. i want you all to be doing well. i'm doing well. i played my last show for my residency at strange brew on tuesday. it was a blast. kathy valentine played a very acoustic show and she was amazing. i read a facebook post from her that made me think she's probably not doing any more of them which is a drag. anyway, if you missed the residency, i'm sorry. it was fun. hey! if you're in austin this sunday, sept. 14th, i'll be playing with john bush from the new bohemians at his sunday show at one-2-one bar. the show is from 5:30 - 7:30. i'm looking forward to jamming with such great musicians. speaking of jamming with great musicians, if you're in houston tonight friday, sept. 12th, i'll be playing at the continental club with skyrocket! we start at 10. come out and party with us.
my guest for episode 308 is amazing drummer, tommy taylor. i'm sure you've heard tommy play he's the drummer on the christopher cross album with "ride like the wind" and he's played with eric johnson for decades. i met tommy when i was 16 years old. he's always been a great hang and such a great talent. i got to jam with him a lot in the 90's when he played in the "sunday monsters" at steamboat with stephen doster and will sexton. i've been trying to get tommy on the show since i started it. i know he started playing in bands here in austin when he was just a teenager. he ended up playing with christopher cross when he was 20, won grammys. toured the world, played on all the tv shows, went on to play with eric johnson, on spotify alone, songs he's played on have been played over 15 million times. it was an honor to sit down and chat with such an amazing part of rock and roll history. i hope you enjoy our conversation. i did. let's get down!
