Jazz Fest

Spent the weekend in glorious New Orleans. I used to spend a lot of time down there but haven't in awhile. Life just gets away from you and somehow I forgot the glories of Crawfish Bread and the Gospel Tent.

One of the highlights was after the fest heading uptown with my hosts Tyler and Leeds and seeing the Soul Rebels at Tippitinas. Suddenly, half way though the set the drummer announces a special guest from outer space. It can't be. Or could it. Sure enough George Clinton and Parliament swarm the stage.

Then I notice Paul Shaeffer from Letterman is jamming on the keys. It was insane.

But during FLASHLIGHT the techs at Tips pull the plug on George's mic and even Paul's keyboard cause they have a new band coming on. Pulling the plug on parliament? What are you insane? It's a goddamn crime.

But George doesn't give a shit and just keeps singing. Gotta hand it to Paul cause he kept jamming without electricity. Eventually they muscle 'em off. But before they leave my producer Scott Franklin managed to buy George a drink and document some proof.

Four dozen Oysters later, and two slices of Pecan Pie I am ready to return to the cut...

I know, haven't written in a long time. I even forgot that I had this blog. And aren't blogs dead at this point. Isn't it all about twitter.

I'm a bit afraid to go down that path. Spend enough time staring at a screen already.

Well we see how many comments this post gets and if blogs still have a purpose.

Cutting Natalie as she loses her mind. That actress is a real talent. Can't wait for everyone to see the hard work she did.

I will write more...
