Well it seems that our pal Johnny Angel (Wendall) has had another birthday...we
wish him a excellent birthday month and share this info with you... he has started
Project (go there to check it out see him talk to you via video and contribute
to the project!) and will be releasing a CD down the line because of it! Cool,
here's a sample of one of
his recent songs ...and John tells us: There's no garage or punk rock here,
no jokes or spoofs or parodies. That may return at some point in my life, but
for now, I have become enamored of my first true love in music, that of American
roots music. If you are enamored of Neil, Doug, Gram, Roy, Buck and Alex (as I
am), you don't need last names much, but you will need this collection!" So Happy
Birthday John and best of luck with your new CD!
And by the way we also want to wish huge happy birthdays to Cam Ackland
and Sam Mc Afee!!
So I ran into Jimmy Birmingham at The Paradise this week and yes he
still has that damned facial hair but what you'll want to know is that The
Real Kids are practicing and planning a gig for early fall...so keep your
eyes and ears open for news about that! I asked him how John Felice was,
since I have heard rumors about his health but Jimmy says he's doing fine..and
that is a great thing to hear!
