Me and Digger (Danny) while performing "Sault St. Marie" in my hometown of Modesto, CA. June 6, 2003.

I've been very fortunate in that my home town paper (The Modesto Bee) has always been very supportive and generous over the years regarding my music career. Home is a good thing! My thanks to the Bee staff.

Oh, and regarding the "Roy Rogers movie" thing: It was more like 48 years ago, but who's counting? I remember that for a Saturday matinee you could get into the movies for 3 Pepsi bottle caps. A promo of the time. (My God! How old is this guy, anyway?) I came very close to going out into the audience and personally hugging every single person as a "thank you" for coming to the show. It meant the world to me that friends and neighbors would come see and hear us perform.
