A BLAST FROM THE PAST
I recently discovered this link on YouTube: To see a
much younger me performing live with Suzanne Vegafor
British TV, click HERE.
We recently mastered an EP length CD "The Arrival" for
Rogue, produced by Casey
Conrad, and featuring the guitar work of Marc
Shulman. Marc was my immediate replacement in the
Vega band. He is a totally amazing player!
Songwriter Elisa Ray Bartone
is bringing in the renowned Margaret
Dorn to record vocals on one of her song demos.
Madden is recording several of her songs for inclusion
in a film by RC Horsch.
Brian McNeese, fearless leader
of those nattering nabobs of nihilism, the Empty Suits,
returns to continue work on his as yet untitled opus.
A virtual pocket protector goes out to songstress Heidi
Petrikat, who defined "ROTFLMAO" (Rolling On The
Floor, Laughing My Ass Off). Thanks Heidi! Now we're
going way back to the pre-web era for... Acronyms of
Antiquity: The words SCUBA and JATO are really acronyms.
What do they mean? For that matter, what does "acronym"
