Greetings.. This past week was like a rollercoaster ride, with
lots of ups and downs.. Tuesday (August 9th), was the memorial
service for my friend George Lathbury who was found murdered.. I
played an hour of acoustic instrumentals while the guests arrived at
Patterson's Funeral Home in downtown Atlanta.. Everyone was still
dazed by the turn of events, and you could hear the shock in their
voices.. A few of George's friends shared their memories of him, and
then I sang one of his favorite songs, "Sound Of Silence", by Simon
and Garfunkel.. It was an honor to be there, and something I will
never forget.. George will be missed by many, and it is hard to
accept that he is gone.. The police are still searching for his
wife, and have a murder warrant for her.. Mae Gentry wrote an
excellent article in the Sunday Atlanta Journal about the case..
I'll keep you informed of further events surrounding this horrible
MOTION played at Jake's
Toadhouse on Friday evening.. The place was packed, and the band
sounded great.. I had a blast playing all the Zeppelin, Foreigner,
and Journey tunes with some of the best players around. I am looking
forward to many upcoming gigs. Visit our website at
Saturday night I played with the
League Of Decency at
the old Biltmore Hotel on West Peachtree Street.. The band was
cooking, and the dance floor was crowded all night.. I have lots of
gigs coming up with the League, so stay tuned..
I am leaving town on the 17th for a very needed vacation in
Jacksonville Beach, Florida.. I will return next week in time to do
the solo acoustic gig at Monterrey's Mexican Restaurant in Doraville
on the 25th.. Margarita specials, and great food await you, so come
on out and see me at Monterrey's..
I will be playing on August 27th at Chateau Elan with the League Of
Decency for the wine tasting festival.. This is open to the public,
and should be lots of fun. Drinking wine all day for free.. HHHMMM...
Sounds like a hard job, but someone has to do it..
This is all the news for now, but I will keep you up to date about
gigs and events.. Hope to see all of you soon... Stay tuned.....
