    Default Tunnel Vision

    Hey, Y'all... A couple of years ago I reconnected with an old high school buddy who played keys in our rock band. We hadn't seen each other since then and when we hooked up online, things seemed pretty cool. There was talk of a band reunion but the bassist had no interest and the drummer was caught between the ex and the next... So Steve (retired IT guy) figured out how to jam long distance (he's near Herb in OP, KS)
    and we got together twice a week to try to play our old sixties playlist. When he found out I've written a bunch of songs, he wanted to try some of them. So that kinda snowballed until we were only playing my originals. Then he suggested we try to record them. So we did; and have completed almost two albums worth. The first one is up on Bandcamp; the second will take a bit longer since the more we do this, the more we learn and the less we are satisfied with the results.... Anyway, if anyone wants to hear the results of almost two years of 'reconnecting', here's the address: https://luckythorn.bandcamp.com/releases

    And in case you don't get that far, "Tunnel Vision" is the name of the album.... And title song.

    Nice stuff, Steve. Bailey must have been one sweet pooch.

    Thanks Mike... Yes, she was awesome. She went so fast; one day she was tearing through the woods and that night started coughing. We couldn't get a diagnosis at either of two really good vets and she died in a week.... Lungs either full of cancer or fluid... I actually suspected she might have gotten a dose of some kind of toxic mold out there....
    But, she had a great life and I was Lucky to be able to share it with her...

    Well done, brother!
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.
