Vegas baby…if anyone is bored today in Vegas come to the free show downtown….starts at noon.

We got Billy Gibbons, Vince Gill, Kevin Cronin, Kenny Wayne, Kenny Aronoff, Mikey Mills, Jimmy Irsay, Mikey Wanchic, Billy Branch on the harp, and some other crabby old guy who’s name I can’t remember.

We had to move the show time up because of approaching inclement weather.

Millsy and I have a lot of fun over on stage right….never stop laughing…or drinking. He’s a lovely guy and i appreciate the fact that he always puts up with me and my little camera.

top 10 greatest lyrics ever written?

"Passing Afternoon" by Samuel Beam

"There are times that walk from you like some passing afternoon
Summer warmed the open window of her honeymoon
And she chose a yard to burn but the ground remembers her
Wooden spoons, her children stir her Bougainvillea blooms

There are things that drift away like our endless, numbered days
Autumn blew the quilt right off the perfect bed she made
And she's chosen to believe in the hymns her mother sings
Sunday pulls its children from their piles of fallen leaves

There are sailing ships that pass all our bodies in the grass
Springtime calls her children until she lets them go at last
And she's chosen where to be, though she's lost her wedding ring
Somewhere near her misplaced jar of Bougainvillea seeds
There are things we can't recall, Blind as night that finds us all
Winter tucks her children in, her fragile china dolls
But my hands remember hers, rolling around the shaded ferns
Naked arms, her secrets still like songs I'd never learned
There are names across the sea, only now I do believe
Sometimes, with the window closed, she'll sit and think of me
But she'll mend his tattered clothes and they'll kiss as if they know
A baby sleeps in all our bones, so scared to be alone"
