Pan-democratic update!

Pan-demic: Bang a pan wherever you are in the world on

(Date to be determined)
Make some noise to show you support
all those working for all of us.
This is something anyone can do, anywhere, at any age, at no cost –
just a concert of shared noises!

Though none of the 100 media outlets that I’ve contacted so far is interested, you are welcome to join me.
I have heard about a similar idea that I would like to share.

Laura Lamarca writes! It’s not an idea you’ve started. We “Clap for the NHS” and all frontline workers in the UK every Thursday at 8pm. Many bang pans. We borrowed the idea from Spain and have been doing it for 5-6 weeks.

My idea came to me on April 1, this month. Seems I was not the only one with the idea. Salute to all those others!

So Who is Listening?

January 27, 2020

Q. But aren’t there people out there that love the generic mainstream pop?A. No! No one is lapping it up. No one here, no one anywhere. The Big 3 Labels, parent companies own the media and talk shows that review and promote their bad music. They make it sound like this music is popular. But all sales are way down, and last year was the first to match the high year of sales, 1999! Virtually everyone I’ve ever talked to is like you reading this, and has to block out corporate and search out good music. That should tell you it’s a marketing scheme, not the will of anyone anywhere . No one seems to know this, and so they really think there is some weird people out there that love this junk and hate good music. No

My Style of Music , a letter to a music friend.

My Style of Music
Let me add this thought. I did traditional rock recordings in the eighties; guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, but then evolved to a simpler style, back to basics that I really like. So, should I studio record this or any of my songs, it would not be a retro band attempt from the style of 60 years ago, but a new more simple arrangement, in the new style that most don’t seem to like much, or at best are bewildered that it doesn’t sound like it “should”, in the old style.
At most any studio recording of mine now would involve a lead singer, 2 background singers and one or two standard guitars, and the comments would still be: I want to hear the old style, don’t you? No, not anymore. There were the Beatles and 60 years of imitators in my opinion. We don’t need me to be another. Yes many here are doing original and fine work in this style, and it suits them. Your work is a fine example, but it is not for me anymore.
