New Years Eve
So, this is what happened the first year we played Big Night New Orleans on New Years Eve. Every year has been quite a blast and we are very happy to be part of it again this year! Get your tickets now as it will most likely sell out by show day! Hope to see ALL of you there! Sounds like a great idea for a road trip to me. http://bignightneworleans.com/
From the recent Offbeat magazine article about Fred / Cowboy Mouth;
"Over the years he’s collected his share of wild rock stories, one of the best coming (pun intended) from a New Years Eve show at the Hyatt Superdome a couple years back. “I never see what’s happening in the audience. We’ve played festivals where women are flirting with you, removing clothing. And people say, ‘Did you see that?’ Nope, never do. So on this occasion we’re playing, the stage is pretty high and the audience is pressed against the stage. I’m playing the bass drum and I’m thinking ‘Hmmm—I didn’t hit that beat just now.’ We keep playing, I’m hearing these beats I didn’t play, and I don’t know what’s going on. But apparently there was a couple celebrating bringing in the new year in their own special way, right there on my drums.” This behavior is not necessarily encouraged when Cowboy Mouth return to play that gig again this year."
On this holiday, we all have much to be thankful for in Cowboy Mouth land. The good health and bounty of all of our family and friends, still being able to kick a lot of musical booty after 25 years, and the greatest fans in all the world! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, may we all remember to be grateful for all the good things bestowed upon us.
With love, Fred

Cowboy Mouth Meets AC/DC
This is a direct result of having Brian Broussard in the band. One thing I love about his playing in it is that he plays every song like it's AC/DC. These are the kind of things that happen when you're just playing around having fun. Anyway, hope you enjoy. It's pretty silly…

All you piano players out there, raise your hand....
In the last couple years, we have seen the passing of some incredibly passionate, creative, and inspiring musicians. The passing of Leon Russell this morning comes as no real surprise. It's what happens when you get old. What is a surprise is how little people know about him and his contributions to rock music, especially rock/gospel piano. Between Billy Powell's (Lynyrd Skynyrd) passing last year and Leon's, my teenage piano playing heroes are sadly exiting the building. Melancholy describes it best. Now, as an elder statesman musician myself, I feel it is my duty to inspire, introduce, and educate younger musicians and pass it on. So if you're hoping to be the rockingest piano player in your school, do yourself a favor and study Leon, Billy, and Elton.

Goofing off on the back porch in Dallas, TX. How about dem Cowboys? Preparing for my 10 days in Beijing & Chengdu, China in a couple weeks. We are going to do 3 days of Volunteer Panda work in Chengdu. So I simply had Pandas on my mind.
