Hello old friends
It's been a near eternity since I've updated this or the kiss the frog websites so I doubt that anyone even bothers to visit here anymore. If you have stumbled here on the off chance that something is stirring, well, you're in luck. Go buy a lottery ticket.
But first, I guess I should probably offer some kind of explanation about wtf happened.
Like millions of people who've attempted to become a musician I became completely disillusioned by the whole thing. Specifically, the supremely suckful state of live music in Los Angeles. I'm not the kind of guy who is willing to take a gig playing indie rock, buying a flanger and firing up the smooth jazz or playing second fiddle to an espresso machine.
The problem with being an artist who puts their heart into their craft is if your heart isn't into it anymore, your craft is nonexistant. Like Miles Davis' late 1970's silence, I had nothing left to say anymore. For whatever reason, I just had zero desire to play, write, or do any mixes.
Then life happened. I got a job in the internet biz, got married, quit the job to start my own internet biz, got a dog, did some traveling, all that good stuff.
Throughout all of this, my fellow Frogs have never given up on me. Pete and Barry always checked in extending loving invitation to fire up the jets and throw it down. We've had a bunch of great jam sessions over the last few years, including a nutty one with Berry that culminated in a touching version of 'Comfortably Numb.'
Anyways, just thought I'd let y'all know that I'm alive and I think I've got the itch again. I don't know if any of this is gonna result in gigs. We'll see.
I hope that all of you are happy and healthy. Thanks for stopping by.
