Not sure that I see anyone as superhuman, simply perhaps not as flawed as some musicians that I have met. And it is not only the fact that Bubba and the fellas have done something extraordinary - but the history and music that they have shared in my life.
I love history, and without knowing me, they have written a great many pages in mine.
The only person in my life that I truly idolize sleeps next to me every night. She's pretty super.

Something I read in The Masked Rider made me stop and reflect. Bubba wrote (paraphrasing here) Am I a good person? I try to be but I acknowledge that it is sometimes a struggle for me.
That told me so much about him and about me. We all have to struggle to overcome personality traits that separate us from one another. Sometimes we can, sometimes we can't. But we try. And it's so good to be reminded that we ALL try.

I recently read (second time) your account of the Hockey theme recording "Fire on Ice." Not a few days later I happened to stop at an estate sale, enticed by the advertisement of
"Lionel Trains" which were a disappointment. Interestingly, a gentleman exited the sale (as we were on line to get in) carrying a vintage "Canadian Hockey" table game. It was so cool and had I seen it first, I would have shipped it to you via ANTHEM given the fact that you specifically mentioned it.

Isn't Olivia's birthday soon or soon past? She's about two now, right? Happy Birthday Olivia!

Yes. I believe it was the last week of August, IIRC, and she did turn 2. I know Bubba wants to keep her out of the spotlight but I would SO love to see a picture of her

I don't blame him with all of the wackos out there. It's getting bad lately.
Anyway, I'm almost through recording the song-my tribute to the birth of something beautiful that came out of a period of intense hardship. I can't wait to let you guys hear it!

In reading this, Animation came to mind. Jon Anderson's tribute to birth from 1982. I had to go back and listen to/read it again. Gave me the shivers on the top o' me head to think of it from Bubba's perspective.

Bubba, you know-I've been thinking. When you decide to stop touring (and still produce studio work-think Beatles-though they are not your favorite band), you should consider opening "Bubba's Bar and Grill" for real. Kind of like "Hard Rock Cafe" except it'll have YOUR stuff in it. Just make sure the food and wine is good, which I have no doubt it would be.

I was sitting at a strategic meeting (school) that was discussing resiliency among certain kids who have high risk factors like divorce, poverty, substance abuse, physical or emotional abuse, neglect, etc... and how a segment is able to overcome in spite of these due to an "interventional" support, like a role model, grandparent, friend, etc.
Honestly, I was one of those kids. Without going into it too much (you'll have to read the book someday) I have to admit that Bubba was one of those people to me when I was 15. His humble expression of topics of "good" inspired and comforted me then and still do now. In that meeting it occurred to me that it went beyond him being a rock star and me a fan. The words and emotion that they conveyed were a tool in my personal resiliency. As I've emphatically stated previously, probably to his embarrassment, "I would not have made it to becoming the man I am today without the unintentional intervention of this friend and brother.
Sorry Bubba-I know you are a humble man and it makes you a little uncomfortable, but you contributed to saving my life.
Oh, and by the way....I'll never forget it.

Turned my boy on to "Xanadu" this morning. He is playing percussion in the orchestra for Christmas this year. I figured that Xanadu is a great percussion composition-especially the intro.. So he asked me if Neil was in "band" in school and I have to speculate that he was based on his classical percussion parts. I don't remember if I read about that in Traveling Music. Anyone? Anyone? (Ferris reference).
