I lived in Ann Arbor, Michigan when John Sinclair was in prison
for giving an undercover agent two joints of marijuana.
John Lennon headlined a benefit that led to Sinclair's swift
release from Jackson State Prison.
This is my report...

Brad Buchholz interviewed me for the Austin American-Statesman.
The topic was Bob Dylan.

Letter To The Editor

Townes Van Zandt Documentary
Now Available On CD in US

I interviewed Townes Van Zandt in a professional studio for an oral biography of his life in 1992 and 93. Those sessions resulted in about six hours of tape specifically dealing with his life as a traveling songwriter. I have stories, in Townes' own voice, about how he wrote several of his songs. Townes revealed many insights into how he created as a songwriter. Some sections of that interview have been released as a CD Documentary first in Germany, and now in the US. The edition released in Europe on the Normal label called "Townes Van Zandt Documentary" is now available in the US. The CD features 10 songs and was edited by me into documentary form. I told Townes' life story chronologically and provided three short segments of narration.

The Big Shift

A while ago I started taking QuickCam pictures of some of my radio guests and loading them onto the page. I also put up a couple of large cartoon graphics that I co-created with Sam Hurt and Guy Juke. That made the page load verrrry slowly, so I have moved some of the graphic heavy sections to

Texas License Plate: SEGWAY

I have driven Alfa Romeos for about 26 years. I had a green 74 GTV coupe for 11 years, a red Spider convertible for about a dozen years, and now I drive a black 85 Spider convertible. Austin is a great town for top down driving. In 96 I had my top down over 300 days, including several warm days during the coldest months. In one recent year there was only one day between March 16 and October 16 when I couldn't have my top down at all. For 7 months the top was down every day but one. In January and February I had the top down 34 days. My Alfa mechanic is Robert Johnson. Cruise over to his web page to see an Alfa Romeo logo.
