Black Angel Guitar

One of the guitars stolen from the band this year was JTG's beloved Blue Angel. To fill that void, some of his friends contributed their skill, money, and time to create for John Thomas this custom MDX Black Angel guitar. Here is to Dwight Maddox and everyone who made this dream come true.

One Of Those Things

“After you’ve seen Cowboy Mouth once, you’ve got to see them every time they come to town. It’s just one of those things.” - Authentic Experience

Fats Domino

Many times on the road when I'd be missing home, I'd put on Fats Domino's song "Whole Lotta Lovin'" not only because it was a great record, but mostly of all of his great music, that song always sounded and felt like the New Orleans I know and love - joyous, rhythmic, celebratory simply for celebration's sake, full of life... kind of like the Fat Man himself.

"I'm Gonna Be A Wheel Someday" was a personal credo for me, and we've been known to play a hell of a version of it!

When Katrina hit Nola, I found a small measure of solace in hearing that Fats had been rescued from his home, which was engulfed like the rest of the city in those terrible days.

With a smile on his face, diamonds on his fingers, pounding out a percussive melody like no one before or since, Antoine Domino (his given name) was, I think, the perfect metaphor for the greatest city in the world. There will never be enough gratitude from us toward him. - Fred



A Fully Interactive Concert

Seeking A Narrow Path Through The Darkness

It's late. Can't sleep. 
Checked the web, it's official. Tom Petty is gone. 

And while the country rightfully weeps for the many killed in Vegas as well as grasping to find motive in the perpetrator of such an obscene and horrific act, I'm finding small late night comfort in a live version of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' "Learning To Fly." 

It's a mostly acoustic version with the band adding subtle touches that make it sublime. I've always loved this version of the song, but tonight I'm finding that it seems to possess a healing quality... then again, maybe it's just me and how I'm seeing it right now.

I saw someone comment on the web today that, to paraphrase, some people care about the death of a rock star more than the senseless tragedy that displayed itself last night. But I don't think that's necessarily the case.

For me personally, re-listening to music that has been an emotional touchstone throughout my life is – in an odd way, I admit – reminding me of that sense of hope and joy I've always had whenever Tom Petty has graced my life in song and life force. And really, that's what the music is: An expression of his unique and unbeatable life force. 

Make no mistake, these will be days of national tears and mourning, and rightfully so as the names and stories of those killed become more known to us all. And while each of these souls were the purveyors of their own wonderfully individual life forces, as we all are, I can't even begin to imagine the heartbreak of those closest to them. 

So once again, through Petty's music, I'm seeking my own narrow path through the darkness. In his songs I'm finding the very emotion, soul, and expression one can only assume that last night's gunman was hoping to still, to extinguish in all of us. 

For myself, I can think of no better way tonight to remember Petty as well as to mourn those lost in Vegas than through the beautifully inextinguishable life force displayed in this live version of "Learning To Fly" and the emotion that it reignites inside of me.

God bless y'all.
