    No, ladies and gentlemen - I have not been hired to be a motivational

    speaker for the Lockheed

    Martin Company - opening for the Charlie Daniels Band (at the Paul

    Wolfowitz Theatre)  Maybe opening

    for Ted Nugent would have been more obvious.

    I have to admit I did have a little fun with it - but had no idea I

    would get bombarded with

    replies!  I had over a hundred in the first 15 minutes!  In 24 hours

    it has been thousands!  Jeeze,

    maybe I should consider a career  as a con artist.

    In any event,  I felt  a second E-Mail is in order.  Feel free to


    OK OK - I promise not to bug you guys with two E-Mails in a row like

    this again.  I really try to

    make this strictly a once a month thing.  I really do appreciate your

    kind words and thoughts.

    I got lots of congratulations, a few lectures on how I have slipped

    down the slippery slope, those

    who gave me a several page lecture on selling out (celling out),

    musicians wanting to join the

    band, tons of unsubscribes.  And even someone wanting tickets to the

    show with Hillary Duff.

    In truth, I am in Pittsburgh right this second - preparing to head for

    Detroit to do the absolute

    last we really mean it - till next time - show with Anne Feeney.

    But I won't bore y'all with another newsletter - other than to say

    THANKS for all the responses.

    I swear the people on this list are the absolute coolest folks on the


    And since so many of the coolest folks on the planet have asked -I

    will give you a few highlights

    of what is really going on.


    I am working on a new CD with David Roe working title: "American Story


    I have one piece recorded and working on 10 more!  NEW ON THE WEB

    SITE:  A way you could donate


    I am hoping that it will be A DVD!  I've written a few scripts and

    started shooting the first one

    with a borrowed camera.  I want to thank all of you who have chimed in

    with advice on this!  I am

    still wanting to buy a computer so that I can edit this thing myself.

    Till then if any of  you

    want to get involved in any way - zap me back.


    I am looking forward to a handful of dates in The NY area with D.R.

    this month.  Look for lots of

    new material!


    I am booking a west coast tour in late June/Early July to include The

    Oregon Country Fair See

    below for details and if ya have any ideas or offers on a place to

    play - zap me back


    Finally, I have been booked at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival doing

    spoken word on the main stage.

    This will be linked with a few shows in the NE including a festival in


    If you have any ideas - let me know!
