Got A Gig


So Logan told me today that my blog was "falling off" because I don't post enough. I replied, "I just don't feel like many people read it." Then he told me that he reads it a lot, along with his sister and extended family. So, to Meagan and those crazy Dagleys in Tennessee, thanks for reading. I will try to post more often. I have plenty of stuff to write about, it just seems a little pretentious to write about it on my blog. Oh well, give the people what they want right? Right.

I finally got some cool stuff happening music wise. First off, I am trying to have my album done and ready to go my late May. That is definitely do-able if I just work hard. I have ten tracks planned; music is completely done on 8. I have about 20% of the vocals done, so it's just a matter of sitting down and doing it. I have gotten some pretty good feedback thus far from both strangers and friends on this stuff. Of course, my family loves it. But they have to; it's a requirement.

The most immediate excitement involves The Whiskey A Go Go. Yes, the famed club on the Sunset Strip. My friend Jeremy Graham is a bluesy rocker and needed a rhythm section, so I am playing the drums for him March 2. Should be lots of fun; there are a few other shows he has lined up, so as long as I am not a total clown on the set, I may get to play again with him.

As far as my own stuff, I am playing with a drummer named Trent (see below). He is a Starbucks co-worker. Though he doesn't admit it, he wants to be Aaron Gillespie (also see below). Which isn't a bad thing. I mean, he has the red hair and the 5 rolls down. I just gotta teach him to funk baby! Anyways, we have jammed a few times and are working on learning some of my stuff. It is sounding good.
Next up: Bass player.

Until next time, PEACE!!

thanks for the shout out. . .

also, it seems to me that you feel the need to post how you feel like nobody cares/reads your blog every couple weeks so that people respond about how much they love reading it. Its a cheap excuse and a sad attempt to boost your self-esteem. . .

with that being said, i find that your blog is just a great way to get inside you. . . i mean, i love you. . . i mean your blog is good.
