Rollin All Night Long

The Crucible song a day project is still rollin. Here’s one of my favorite songs from this month:


In other news . .. I got one more week to catch my breath n find new pointy boots here in Tucson before I head out again with Howe Gelb for a 10 day tour of Spain. I’ll again be opening the shows and accompanying Howe on guitar and drums. I hear a fellow named Shelley and a hand full of gypsies might join us here n there as well .. .. check the shows section for tour dates.

It’s like they say . .. in the heat of the day, a drink will keep the pain at bay  .. …
