Roads-The Damaged Goods Sessions



So let's talk about Damaged Goods....

it hardly seems possible that it was over 20 years ago that Tom Provencher, aka Tom Darkside and I got together at the kitchen table in a house Tom was sharing with a mutual friend. Since that time we've played over 500 gigs and had some truly memorable moments, among them playing Wild Horses with Donovan and Brian Jone's kid at The Stephan Talkhouse, doing a benefit with Billy Joel, Taj Mahal and Mick Jones (with Kathaleen Turner puking in the ladies Room) and nights on Shelter Island with the crowd chanting "we've got a boat" when we were doing an early encore so we could catch the last ferry.

And to all the folks that have come to see us play and supported us over the years, to you we owe a debt of gratitude. Thanks.

But for me the highlight has always been getting to play with Tom, who I believe is one of the most truly gifted musicians I have ever met. I've always felt I've been lucky to give birth to some really good songs but it was Tom who smacked them in the ass and brought them to life. Check out Tom's playing AND singing on Blue Light Video Dreams and you'll see what I mean.
