Glad I Stayed Up

Look what just landed in my email inbox from someone who was at Hotel Cafe tonight...

Some of you may be surprised to know that I actually follow this guy on Twitter. He has a great sense of humor and a witty intellect that really suits 140 characters. But over the past 12 hours his tweets have been fraught with melancholy. In fact, I was getting a little worried about him.

Now I know I need not fret. Tonight he played some music in a tiny club to real live humans and, although I wasn't there to witness it, I'm guessing he got the jolt he needed...much like what playing in a small club did for Michael Bloomfield the last time I saw him play live at the Troubadour.

It's kismet that the tome he is holding landed in his hand tonight...because if he takes the time to look inside I believe he will find some inspiration from those who came before him...further proof that my sweet dead rock stars continue work in mysterious ways.

Rock on, John!

That's so awesome. Didn't you offer to send him this book? So did you, or did he buy it, or did someone give it to him? ;)

((le sigh)) - It's a kick ass book though, for real.

That's wicked cool! Thank God it's filled with awesome photos -- not sure he can read.

Glad to see he got your book! Nothing like a small venue to get a dose of Gravity. I can't imagine being in his shoes. He's at a point in his career where he can do anything he puts his mind to. It's always good to get back to basics, to remember why your doing what you do.
