Tonight, this very evening, he's swinging through town to showcase yet another aspect of his artistry: playing music on a guitar. I have no idea if it will be any good -- if he actually is good, I will both respect him more and resent him more -- but here are some details.
I've been writing songs for over thirty years. I don't write hits. I don't send out demos to famous singers. I just write songs. They're my diaries. I had everything I've ever written in this big, black notebook. Some of them were typed, some were in long hand, but all of them had a time and a place that marked some moment in my life. If you really wanted to get to know me, you'd find me in there.
