If you're reading this -- I am guessing you know to whom I am referring. :)

Looks like an interesting read, of an interesting time, by an interesting guy -- arguably the best "rock" guitarist of 'em all... even if most rock fans don't even know who he is! ;)

    Plus, he is one of the most acclaimed singer/songwriters ever.

    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; LAT International speaker cables, ZU Mission IC's and power cables all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    Other; M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All vintage Polk have had crossover rebuilds and tweeter upgrades.

    There are three things that give a man a false sense of courage, a keyboard, alcohol and a firearm.

    Tony said " but even socialists can do a good thing here and there

    the substitution of politics for existence is the supreme betrayal of the subjective otherness of man.

    Well -- I'm a big fan.
    Best part is, we usually see him, solo, in 200-ish seat venues.
    It really doesn't get much better in terms of live music (IMO).

    Yes, not much better than seeing him solo in a several-hundred-seat venue for the unbelievable value he charges for admission. Hugely under-appreciated troubadour. Will pick up this book.

    And here I was thinking this was about Randy Travis.

    If he ever does a memoir it would be interesting to read as well.
    "Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music." ~ Ronald Reagan

    “I love songs about horses, railroads, land, Judgment Day, family, hard times, whiskey, courtship, marriage, adultery, separation, murder, war, prison, rambling, damnation, home, salvation, death, pride, humor, piety, rebellion, patriotism, larceny, determination, tragedy, rowdiness, heartbreak and love. And Mother. And God.” ~ Johnny Cash
