So sorry to hear about our good friend Charlie Daniels passing. We have jammed in the past and Angel and I both played in many of his charity tournaments. He was such a great musician and player.

John Landis struck gold with his madcap 1980 comedy, a masterpiece of choreographed destruction with a killer soundtrack. Running hot off the success of his 1978 frathouse romp Animal House, Landis was handed the keys to the studio kingdom and seized the opportunity to make the biggest, loudest commercial juggernaut that Hollywood had seen since It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.

We have lost two super guys this week: Little Richard and Roy Horn of Siegfried & Roy. I had the great fortune of meeting both of them several times. Both real people, not to be confused with their profession. Just regular guys doing what they did best. Both will certainly be missed but,as they say,never forgotten. No one could ever copy what they achieved, the absolute best.

Friends!
I know we’re all dealing with this pandemic in our own way, but I’m so devastated at the loss of some incredible friends, & musical brothers/ royalty recently!
My heart goes out to the families of JOHN PRINE, (who I had the privilege of collaborating with for so many years!), JOE DIFFIE, what an amazing musician, & great guy! And, Delta Dawn deliverer, ALEX HARVEY!
I just can’t wrap my mind around the speed at which this virus has spread & taken so many lives!
I’m home with my beautiful wife, Angel, our youngest kids, Andrea & Cam, Our Big ole Delta Blue, & shaggy Toby!
I say a prayer for my friends, family, business associates, and especially YOU, my fans, (& friends)….
Please stay safe, & follow every direction given by your Governor, mayor, etc. , wherever you may be!
Show your Loved Ones just how much they mean to you!
This sure has taught me never to take a single minute for granted!
We’ll get through this!
God Bless…
Crop!
