I finished Gregory's book a couple of days ago and I was stunned. It was obviously a book about 45+ years that I have been a part of and so much of it was so familiar. Reliving a lot of it through Gregg ranged from tears to raging laughter and pretty much every emotion in between. What stunned me was how open to his inner self Gregg is in the book. I am still taking in a lot of what he had to say but I just can't say enough how proud I am of Gregg right now. It took a ton of courage for him to open up the way he has in this book. You want to know how incredible it is to play music, be a member of the ABB in all of its formations and how horrible being a celebrity can be, read this book. He lays it all on the line and pulls no punches on himself. Gregory, you da man!!! GREAT JOB.
It has been a while since I've had the time to post here. In case you don't know it we are recreating Moogis and that has kept me very busy. Moogis will go live for the Peach Festival in August. It will be free and we intend to stream a new concert everyday from then on. We'll draw from our archives early on as we build out places to stream live from around the country. It is our hope that within a few months you'll be able to watch a "live" concert every night. For free. Go to www.moogis.com and sign up.
One more thing: I just finished a video as practice for an instructional DVD I'll do later this year. If you'd like to know how I play Whippin Post check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNGQudbM3OQ
That's all for now. I would answer some of the more outlandish comments that have been posted to the blog, but I won't. I've already said it enough: if you don't like what I have to say, either respond with your version or just don't come here. Simply calling me names does no one any good, or harm, for that matter.
