The Girl that gets the B-Sides......"for the love of music"....


4:57 PM

Music: Jeff Buckley / Royal Gun

I went to see Jon Brion on the 19th, he started out with his usual "lull" on the piano which turns into a song, usually. he did about 13 songs for the first set including; love of my life, happy with you (which unusually got a major amount of applause), further along, all the young dudes, white rabbit on piano, girl i knew, and some punky guitar riff which turned into the buzzcocks "ever fall in love with someone". (that was just some, not all of the songs) 2nd set Fiona gets on stage with Jon and her producer Mike Lerinzeno and they do a few songs off her new album and she also did "Criminal" it was cute the way she laughed a little in the middle of it. Jon looked a little like Gram Parsons to me, perhaps it was his hippy looking shirt. Jon and Fiona did an amazing "you belong to me" with just them and a guitar. Then Benmont Tench/Gabe Witcher and Sarah Watkins came up and they did "bird can sing", "didn't have to be so nice", "time of the season". Jon started a riff and didn't mean it to sound like communication breakdown but they ended up doing that song anyway in a rock then swing sorta way.. it was incredible! I requested a couple of songs during the night and Jon did both of them towards the end " Positively 4th street" by Dylan and "Under the Radar" also Gabe requested Gram Parsons, so they ended up doing "Sin City"... it was another amazing Friday night with Jon Brion.

This past Friday I went to see Donita Sparks at the Casbah in San Diego with my friend Sarah / her brother/and his girlfriend. It was fun. My only comment was that they have too many slow songs for my taste. they do rock though.

I found out some very sad news on Saturday afternoon. one of the nicest guys I ever knew, died on Friday afternoon from a brain aneurysm and "Harry" was only 58. everyone he had ever met, only has nice things to say about him. he was that kind of guy. he would do anything to help someone out. you may remember the famous restaurant called Belisles, near Disneyland. He co-owned that!
I hung out at my friend Sandy's house all day and night on Saturday as did a few of her close friends. Harry was pretty much like a father figure to Sandy, so it is extra hard on her. He loved Disneyland as much as Sandy does and from time to time they would get a bunch of the old gang from Belisles and go to Disneyland. I've gone a few times. Harry will be missed by everyone who came in contact with him. everyone is still in shock and can not believe he is gone. No more Holidays with Harry. he was a huge Holiday fan. He would be the one doing all the decorating at the party house. He was so giving and caring. it's just unbelievable!
And to think it can happen to anyone at anytime for no reason at all.

On another sad note. My friends cat passed away in Ma. this past weekend. her name was rosebud and she was a russian blue. Eric is very sad about that, he had that cat for 13 years.
I've hung out with the cat a few times. I even helped Eric get a tick out of it's back. that was so gross and sad at the same time! i'd never seen a tick before.

On a more happy note....
I'm going to New York (not Boston!) in September. perhaps Eric will drive to NY to come vist me?
The Blues explosion are going to be playing their Orange album in it's entirety the week i'm gonna be there. I've very excited about that.

Peace, Love and Happiness to all.
