June 4, 2011 Nashville, TN – The Ryman Auditorium OK, so what do I mean by reunion? About 14 years ago, a good friend and contact at A & M records – Al Marks – called me up and told me I had to come out and meet the new artist he was working with. I was still working up in Chicago then and this new artist was only 15 years old. Jonny Lang had just started touring in support of his first major release, Lie To Me, and Al was hoping Shure would start …

May 21, 2011 Montclair State University – Montclair, NJ This was the first time in about 3-4 years that I’ve been back at the Modern Drummer Fest and back to MSU. It was great to see this campus again and it has been growing and rebuilding ever since. Last year, Shure sent a boatload of mics to the event. This year, due to the fact that 2 Shure artists were on the bill, I decided it would be good to come out and support. I arrived Friday afternoon and went over to the hall to …tagsBeta 181/CBeta 52ABeta 91ABeta 98AMPBilly WardHoracio "El Negro" HernandezJim RileyKSM313KSM32Modern Drumer FestivalRascal Flatts

Back then, it was all vinyl through a great sound system and finally through a set of …

April 12, 2011 Schuba’s Tavern – Chicago, IL My parents were married about 3 blocks away from Schuba’s. It’s always great to be able to drive down Belmont Avenue in Chicago and still see the church, and many other sights that I grew up seeing when I lived in Chicago. My Grandmother lived about 2 blocks North of Belmont Avenue, walking distance from Cubs park. My Grandfather played as a one-man band at the Cubby Bear several times, right across the street from Wrigley Field. I always love going to see shows in Chicago as …

Last Saturday I ventured out to the Pitchfork Festival at the invite of someone I admire greatly, Jon Spencer. My admiration stems from his work ethic. He seems to constantly be working on something. He’s often his own tour manager. He’s often the driver. And if you’ve ever seen him in concert you probably know that he’s been infused with the most raw parts of the Spirit of Rock & Roll.
