The Joans Care...Really They Do!

I'm getting ready to head over to Jackhammer and start loading in my stuff to set up for our show tonight. I went shopping today and bought a few new goodies: a new bass drum pedal (with a metal platform and dual chain, for better response), a microphone (not cordless this time--I'm donating that thing to a Taco Bell drive-thru somewhere), microphone cord and stand and cord and a drum mat. I dropped a nice little chunk of change at Guitar Center, and also hopped next door to the Home Depot and bought a hand trunk to make it easier to carry stuff from now on...

I also bought a few new duds for the occasion--because I care. I care more than you'll ever, ever, EVER know about my public.

There. I'm finished channeling my inner Joan, and am ready to be a drummer again.

But speaking of caring, in honor of Joan's spirit of service and because it's Labor Day Weekend, here's a little clip of a long-ago Jerry Lewis Telethon (circa 1966) courtesy of my friend Marty, who posted it on his MySpace page:



I love how Joan jerks Christina's hand and pulls her toward the phones, barely giving her a chance to speak to Jerry at all. She must have known what was in store just over a decade later and decided to staunch the flow of stories!

Have a happy holiday everybody!

Thanks Ed! We had a fab night and many legs were broken (in the best way, of course)...;-)
