“Rusty homebound soon”
May 25 2009

Ol Rusty is getting ready to fly to LA in July for rehearsals for the tour. And, without giving too much away, we’ll be playing a song from the Gethsemene period! I shant give the track title away, you’ll have to come out and see/ hear for yourself!

And hey, I understand the economy has everyone watching the pennies..me included. That’s why we have Probyn Gregory playing trumpet (Alone Again, Clark & Hilldale), Keyboards (Stephanie Knows Who, Andmoreagain, other tunes), Melodica/Flute parts (Orange Skies, etc), Harmonica and various other things.

We’re doing AT LEAST 3 tunes that either haven’t been recorded by LOVE (but performed) or were recorded (but not performed) since the mid-to-late 1960’s.

I think Arthur would approve. He loved his original band and their Bido Lido shows are legendary. I hope we can capture even an ounce of that magic. Even though Arthur is not with us on stage, his heart and soul never left. I am really happy and excited to play these shows and Johnny Echols…whew…he is READY and all the guys in the band are gonna give the best shows possible.

And I haven’t even touched on playing with Sky Saxon…which is a whole nuther blog and something altogether beautiful on it’s own…and thank the lord for Tina Winter, who has been working hard for the Cali 66 Revue…go Tina!

Blogged from Barney’s in Pasadena while Hannah shops the day before our 3-year Anniversary.
