The past is gone and is just a fuzzy memory, the future is nothing but a fantasy, and yes, all we are now is what is in the present moment.
Really though, who knows anyone?

To know the real Aubrey Slackey today you must first know his past.

Aubrey Slackey started working with Eric McConnell at his new studio on his first solo project. At the time, little did they know they were recording and mixing tracks for the debut project known as “Slackey Says” with the soon to be Grammy winning Eric McConnell, now full-time based out of Nashville TN.
McConnell mixed and recorded and played slide guitar, bass and guitar on this project under the alias John E McConnell.
In mixonline.com magazine Eric’s contemporaries wrote:
“McConnell’s a fine musician and people come to his home studio because they like the way he records music. McConnell likes his 1-inch 8-track analog Otari machine and a Sound Workshop Series 30-X console, and so does White Stripes’ Jack White, producer Loretta Lynn’s, Van Lear Rose”

About the Slackey Family:

“There was a whole bunch of people out there, all kinds of people, different types of music fans...they were all diggin’ it...the cool thing about this music is, it’s not just bluegrass, it’s not blues, it’s not early rock, but it’s all that together.”

“People will dance…they will boogie”

“The Slackey Family, ex-punks gone bluegrass...was something new for much of the indie-rock crowd.”

“Slackey brings a vocal sound reminiscent of the old time gospel hour country radio shows of the 1940’-60’s. playing rhythm’s by leading with his thumb on an old Martin acoustic”
