A million years ago, (alright, 37 years ago) Lodgic was writing and recording new songs on a daily basis.
Of course many of these tracks wouldn’t make the album.
One such song (written by J. Haun and yours truly) was completely forgotten by me until the old demo surfaced via a group email.
I submitted it many months later to a recording project and it was given a big “thumbs up”.
A couple of days ago I had the distinct pleasure of hearing the rhythm section tracked by two of my very favorite musicians on the planet: Vinnie Colaiuta and Leland Sklar.
And the kicker is, it was engineered by Niko Bolas, who was one of the engineers on the Lodgic album in 1984.
This one’s for you Michael S.
Love and miss you…💜
“When I was a young man with a free and younger mind
I wouldn’t get so stuck with all the words they left behind
I could turn away so easy and let it fade into the night
But something isn’t right these days
It’s always on my mind and
I can’t just let it go
No, I can’t let it go…
It’s no wonder I want to bleed
When you take it from me
Freedom is a fight”
No matter where we fall in our different experiences, one thing remains true – Freedom is as essential as breathing.
I’ve had this Tele since 1993 (if memory serves). As a birthday gift, “My Bee” gave me a new custom pickguard – I just needed to upload a photo/file of something that I wanted.
I made this bit of Bee Art on a iPad a couple of years ago and I thought it would be apropos!
Thank You Betsy and http://www.guitarsart.com
Great memories, killer band & Yazawa is, as always, on fire!
I’ve never appreciated having the ability to make or play music – anytime inspiration hits – more than I have these last few weeks!
I hope everyone is staying healthy and somewhat sane out there.
