Hello Friends,

Our thanks to Albuquerque and our fans there for making us feel so welcome.

The high altitude and lack of humidity was certainly noticeable but fortunately we are now legged up enough that it had no noticeable effect on our performance. Enthusiasm and adrenaline are just too powerful and win out over these elements when you have the kind of head of steam we have now.

It was a bumpy ride for much of the overnight drive. I bet our drivers are enjoying being out from behind the wheel this morning. Ricky woke up first and said the front lounge looked like it had been vandalized. A big bottle of water had fallen over and leaked out all over a couch and onto the carpet and cups and other thing that had been left out were strewn all about. As usual, I slept through it all. The bumpier the ride, the better I seem to sleep. Go figure...

Is anyone else sick of all these committees and hearings? It is just so much Blah, Blah, Blah, with so much posturing and 20/20 hindsight by these bad actor politicians. And it's not a matter of one party versus the other. Anyone remember "Whitewater?" It's the worst of "Reality TV." There's been so much hot air coming from the beltway it's no wonder Global Warming is a problem.

Gabriel Ortiz, STYX fan and our brother-in-Starbuck's came back to see us before the show last night and we met his sister Theresa who is also a fan. It's always a treat for us to see people who are so familiar with our work and appreciate the details.

Today some of us are going to meet our friend Christopher Roosa for another military adventure. I'll let you know more when I get back. Later today we'll be doing some post production on "Hey Mr. Johnson" and "Blue Collar Man" from the recent 2120 Sessions in Chicago. It's our first chance to move the project along since the May 28 recordings took place and we are looking forward to getting our hands in there.

At 11:00 AM on June 5, we will be first up on Day 2 at the Eric Clapton's "Crossroads" guitar festival in Dallas. We're loving the idea of spending an hour on stage playing some of our favorite blues and blues inspired songs. We're hoping to pull some other guitarists up to join us. Yesterday we jammed during our sound check on "Manic Depression," by Hendrix, "The Thrill is Gone," by BB King, and a greasy JY arrangement of Slim Harpo's "King Bee" as well as looking into some others such as the Yardbirds "I'm Not Talking" and even The Beatles' "I Am The Walrus." We are thrilled to be involved in this cause of Clapton's which bridges two of our own. My affiliation with teen drug rehabilitation over the years (one program is even called "Crossroads") and our commitment to the Willie Dixon Blues Heaven made the fact that Clapton's event was falling on a break in our tour a coincidence that none of us even cares to question.

Isn't it funny how one thing leads to another?
