“Sunday morning Blog”
May 31 2009

Well, it’s the last day of May in 2009 and an early Sunday stroll has landed me at the Farmer’s Market here on Main and Ocean Park, where the food is terrific and the Marimba band is exceptional right now.

So im just kicking back and enjoying my Organic Soy Latte (a staple in the People’s Republic of Santa Monica) while the booth behind me gives away STOP FUNDING WAR bumper stickers. I am tempted to sing Randy Newman’s “Political Science” but I doubt they would ‘get it’. God Bless em.

Hey, Uber thanks to all the great folks who joined the California 66 Revue Facebook Group. Let’s keep it going! Tell your friends. Tell your enemies!

Wow, last night we were watching Graham Norton and our friend, Yves, was on their with the band he plays with (Juliette & the Romantics). He was the bloke with the cherry sunburst Les Paul rocking out.

Rusty will be flying into LA in about 5 weeks or so and I bet he’s dying for Mexican Food. I know I would be. I know he’s anxious to get together and play the music we’ve played so many times, all over the world, in rehearsals, in the studio, on hundreds and hundreds of stages. I hope these shows are recorded because I think they are gonna be special and fun.

Apparently, west coast promoters are already sniffing about so you never know what’s up next. I know that Arthur would want no one else but us to carry this on. I would have loved to a tour with Bryan, Arthur and Johnny. Would that be amazing? Well, our bassist for this tour, David Nolte, played and wrote with Maria McKee, Bryan’s younger sister. And Arthur loved us all. And we loved him. And as long as people still want to experience Love’s music in an intimate setting by the people who spent many years on many levels with Arthur, then I’ll continue to be a part of it.
