TRY THIS AT HOME;
2! WHO'S #1?"
Sure as heck
ain't me. That's the slogan at my local post office that hangs
behind the counter. Now explain something to me; how come I can
send a CD to
England in 2000 for $1.60 but now that same trip costs $3.50? That's
more than a 100% increase. They couldn't explain to me why but,
AIRPORT diary, i'm sure you know i wasn't surprised. And this is
what puts a
dent in my effort to release new (solo) music in the UK, where my
"music supporters" outnumber the USA 10-to-1. So, I've
sent off some demos to
a few UK labels to see who wants to be on my team. Mailing that
many CDs from
Los Angeles waste everybody's money. And only makes the USPS rich.
I get this call from THE NEW GUY...he's on his cell phone calling
from PINK's Hot Dogs, off La Brea and Melrose, and he's ordering
while he's telling me something cool he got thru the mail from Scottish
Keith...and as I listen to him order (Chili, Onions, Cheese), I
forgot the mustard...so he's yelling like crazy to tell em not for
mustard...but he also wanted to remind me not to miss his kid's
saturday (he's turning 5), which I will most certainly attend.
though the live RFH cd is churning along in the mix faze and word
it it sounds brilliant so I really can't wait to have it in my collection.
Also, wow, I got the last 2 installments of THE CASTLE and they
really great. if you don't have a subscription to the ULTIMATE LOVE
highly recommend you do so at your earliest chance. Then bloke who
publishes it, does everything to it, is David P. Housden and, as
big of a fan
he is (and as much work as he's put into this awesome Mag.), he'd
never met THE
SINGER until last summer at Queen Elizabeth Hall. it was a great
moment, one I
shalt soon forget.
are filled with loads of information, reviews, photos, interviews
with old LOVE members, commentary, fan letters and concert dates,
things. I now have numbers 23 and 24, with 24 being the latest one.
interested in a subscription or back issues of the CASTLE should

neighborhood post office.
