I miss you, man. Joe was killed in a tragic loading accident in Alaska. The microphone I use when I gig is a gift from him 'cause he was sick of seeing my beat up SM58 in my face. We love you, man.
The blues? That's just something old guys sing about, right?

My daughter, Angela Hooper, is studying theatre at UMF. She took this photo on a rainy night under the lean-to. I really liked the lighting and content so I chose this for my debut album cover.
This is the still life photo Angela liked. That said, we used it on the back cover of the lyrics booklet.
Another hard day at the office.
