Old friends and influences

One of the biggest influences on how I approach my live act is a guy named John Means aka Dr Gonzo. Gonzo was a standup comic for many years. He and my brother went to college together and I was in some stage productions with him years and years ago. The whole stop and start thing I do during songs is directly lifted from him. He is still one of the funniest people I have ever seen as well as a very good guy.

He stopped touring some years ago and I have heard bits and pieces about him here and there, but have wondered what he was up to now. The answer to that is here. It's good to see old friends doing good things ...

  • So, what's going on this weekend?

    It's gonna be a weekend! Chicago Friday night, Champaign Saturday night. The Peoples Church of Chicago 941 W Lawrence Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60640…

  • Demicon!

    Two shows, no waiting. We stormed through both of them. The new songs are finally figuring out who they are onstage. Music Room Show Persephone…

  • So yeah, that thing

    I am on DW, same name as here. I will, as I have done for months now, post there and have it drift over here.
