Will's blog entry

Please be aware that Will Rigby, drummer for The dB's, has contributed a lengthy and interesting blog entry at the very fine Boogie Woogie Flu. Will's a talented writer, as you will learn from this entry.

Somehow, it's vaulted "Kissy Boys" by Little Diesel into the top 20 tracks at the Hype Machine. I don't know how long that status will last, but better late than never.

what a wonderful essay. i know there was some mention of this trip in the big star book that came out a couple of years ago, but this is the real nitty gritty. you guys really took some great trips / pilgrimages. i think i was too tied up in baseball then to even think of such a thing. thank will for us for putting this down in print for us.

Peter,
I enjoy the blog greatly & I really enjoyed reading this story. I forwarded this link to Terry Manning & this is what he had to say:

"I am compelled to say that whilst that article has lots of interesting reading in it, there are certain things that are just plain misstatements of fact.

For one thing, John Fry is today happily married, and has been for years.

Chris was my BEST FRIEND for ten years, and there was never, ever one single clue of homosexuality as far as I knew, nor any mention of it.

As always, not that there's anything wrong with that, just setting the record straight as I knew it.

That is NOT why Chris burned the masters."

fyi

"Back yet again!" says the Infrequent Blogger

(photo by Bill Reaves) I am inevitably confounded by the amount of time I let go by between posts here. My last post was February of last year (2022). You may ask yourself "what was he doing that prevented him from posting again?" and the answer is, of course, "nothing really." I forget I have this place to write my thoughts down for a waiting world to read, which would be helpful for me as well to empty my chaotic mind and make a little space. But since you're here and may be wondering what I'm up to, I'll try to fill you in. Mostly, I'm tending to home stuff. I do laundry and pick up groceries and a lot of domestic engineering that involves a broom, dustpan and mop. And sometimes that sweet shower glass cleaner recipe I found a while ago that makes it so you can see out again. We have a new junior at UNC-W and a new junior at Riverside High School, and they've been navigating their lives outside the nest. The high schooler just got her drivers&

NY Times blog part three is up

I know, I know. You haven't heard from me lately, and I'm sorry. The future's looming large, and distractions have been keeping me away from DTBMMLF. Meanwhile, the Times songwriting blog is up so you can go read that for the moment. I'll be back soon, I promise. Thank you for your patience.
