Rolling to the Rocks
August 17 ,2007
Tonight is actually early Friday morning, August something, 2007 at 2:41 am. I’m lying in my bunk on the back of the bus. The bus is rolling through the deserts of New Mexico on the way to Morrison, Colorado. I can’t sleep.
I’ve just been practicing up all day getting ready for the show at Red Rocks which is now about 18 hours away. I’ve already written and rewritten the set list about 20 times. I’ve ran some old tunes, worked on finger exercises and scales, noodled endlessly and worked on a song Jeff and I are writing. It’s fair to say I’ve done my work. This is a good thing as I’m hoping tomorrow I can just get up and flow straight through to the show.
We’ve got some cool musical surprises planned for what I’m considering to be the biggest show of my career. Jimmy Jazz is telling me to stop thinking and freaking out about it and I think he’s right I should. And I’m going to stop thinking and rethinking about it as soon as I stop typing and this old bus rocks me to sleep.
Trying to write this set list has been the hardest thing. I wish I could just play every song I got then it would be easier. It’s tough cause maybe I will get to play around 15-20 songs. The thing is I’ve got hundreds. What should I play??? Anyway, I’ve picked out 20 of the best plus we’ve got a special guest. Hmmmmm…Can’t tell you who yet it’s a surprise. See you when the sun is rising high. That’s my word bet, get ready to rock Red Rocks So steady when that sun sinks and the night time rises, sky-high-shooting stars ain’t the only thing that shines. Get your shine on tonight
