So apparently somebody heard me playing at the Open Mike last Friday and posted this picture on his Facebook:
I don’t personally use Facebook, but I knew something was up as soon as I hit the downtown main strip this morning. All these people who know me as a social activist were coming up and saying: “I didn’t know you were a musician!”
By the way, the song I played and sang was The Word from Beyond from my new musical, Eden in Babylon. The link is to the lyrics, and if you want to hear an instrumental rendition of it on my SoundCloud, be my guest:
Otherwise, I must confess the obvious. I mainly posted this here in lieu of a piano video because I once again didn’t get it together. I didn’t get it together because it takes two people to produce those vids — one to play the piano, and one to make sure the recording device (i.e., the smartphone) is mounted in its proper place. And each of the people who usually help me happen to be on extended holiday vacation. :(
So, after much consternation, I have decided to postpone the piano posting till next Friday. At that time, I hope to provide my unique rendition of “Wintertime Love” to whoever is available to receive it. And may Jim Morrison be rolling over in his grave — with laughter.
Please donate to Eden in Babylon.
A little bit goes a long, long way.
