  • i started making up songs in 1986.
    i made an album in 1994.
    i also started a tour in 1994
    and that tour is, in a way, still going.

    i never made a record so good
    that i could just sit home
    or did a show so bad
    that i had to.
    and man, i’ve done some shit shows,
    shit albums too.
    some of them are pretty good though,
    but you know,
    it’s been a while.
    i really need to put out a good album soon
    or i’m finished.

    sometimes these days i sing with a band.
    i think we made a good album.
    david schools of widespread panic is our leader.
    i make up our lyrics….we’re a jam band.
    our songs only go on about an hour or so but they’re still pretty long.

    cool people jam with us all the time and we have like a million shirts and shit.
    i personally think we’re the seventh best band in the whole jam thing.

    on this tour i am coming to town with nothing but my guitar and stories
    like the old days.
    you know…
    pick a little
    talk a little
    pick a little
    talk a little
    cheap cheap cheap
    talk a lot
    pick a little more.

    and not to brag,
    but i also wrote a book that everybody loves
    so i am an author now.
    plus i play everywhere,
    pretty much all the time
    everybody shows up
    and they pretty much always love it.
