I don't know if there is anything I dislike more than having to cancel shows, but today the midwest winter, which oddly enough was a balmy 70 degrees 48 hours ago, got the best of things. My apologies to everyone over in Lincoln, NE for having to pull the plug on tonight, but we'll get a new date soon.

Now, with an unexpected night off, it's time to get down to some songwriting.

Stay warm and be safe out there.

So I've mentioned, recently, a documentary I'm working on called, "Chasing the Lightning". Here's a few thoughts on the project:

1. There have been a lot of documentaries made about music
2. A lot of them have been made by Dave Grohl
3. They usually include private jets, tour buses and huge crowds
4. Most of the performance footage is in arenas
5. Typically lots of party footage and general insanity
6. A lot of them are really great, including the ones by Dave Grohl

But the story I am going to tell is not like that. I’ve been asked many times over numerous years what “it’s” like; the it being earning a living as a musician. Rather than continuing to try to explain it, I figured I would just show it. No pretense. No anything, really. This is going to be the blue-collar side. The work in the working musician. For me, it’s a dream come true and a job at the same time. It’s the greatest thing and the most frustrating thing. Trying to catch magic with your bare hands, and pay your bills at the same time.

Currently, I have about 3/4 of the sequence edited. There are a few steps remaining, namely the voice-over. My goal is to have a rough edit done by mid-March and the final draft cleaned up by the beginning of April. There are tentative plans for a screening which would include an acoustic set and perhaps a Q&A. Details will be coming soon.

Back to the cutting room,
