Right now we're featuring Darren Solomon's killin' remix of "Brooce Swayne". Darren is a beast!


Some good stuff coming up on the calendar before Christmas.  For the nostalgic, I'll be riding again with the Glen Burtnik's Summer of Love Experience celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love.  For lovers of music new, bodacious, and beyond, Screaming Headless Torsos heads to Boston at Brighton Music Hall on December 7th as special guests of our friends Consider The Source .                                  

Tickets are available here for all shows.


So here's my deal with the blog. The blog is for people who really want to "go in".  By that  I mean, in this section, I go into details and really tell the story of whatever's happening. If you see an interesting topic and  you feel like you don’t have time to read, I totally get it.  Just go to my Facebook feed at the bottom of this page and the same topics will be there with the same subject headings and dates, in a super condensed version.  I know... it's all about the time management.

Fear is clouding our judgement as a nation

I'm an optimist. It's part of my hard wiring, but it's also a result of my habits.   I meet people, a lot of people,  I engage folks, and I try to read up, watch, and study things that are happening nearby and far away from my world.  I read a lot of terrifying disturbing things and I read about a lot of unsexy, miraculous, life affirming, amazing things as well.  Mostly though, I listen to the people I meet and my faith is constantly renewed with evidence, not blind belief.  I have seen standards of living…

Quincy Jones Interview with David Marchesse for One word.. Wow!


Okay Y'all. Quincy has some things to say that will probably floor you.  Some things he said, I always suspected.  For instance, he said he "killed" Michael over the constant plastic surgery, meaning he called him out  on it because Quincy thought it was too much. I always wondered if Michael had friends bold enough to tell him that he had gone too far.  He also said Michael stole a lot of music and didn't credit people properly on some occasions.  He also thought that Beatles could barely play when he…

Joe kennedy iii walking away

Yes we can, again

This an excerpt from my Facebook feed last night.  It started as a reply to some of my friends and has been adapted for this post. 

After listening to the inspirational Democratic response to last night’s state of the union address by Representative Joseph Kennedy III, I knew that with the praise, would also come the criticism in looking for the perfect democratic candidate for future presidential elections. I knew it would come from both parties. “Here we go…another Kennedy!” “Another Dynasty!”. “Can’t…

And out of the noise comes a new voice

You know, I remember when I had never heard of Senator Barack Obama, and then I did, and everything changed.  Until tonight's democratic response to the State of the Union address, I had never heard of Represntative Joe Kennedy III and now I have. He spoke to me. He said everything that I want my party to say to the world, he represented what I want my country to be in this world.  A country of prosperity, compassion, inclusion, common sense, freedom and fairness.  Vamos a luchar, ( we will win ) he…

Morgan Freeman accepts the Screen Actor's Guild Lifetime Achievement Award

I couldn't hold back the tears.  He was one of the first actors that I came to know and love. I grew up watching him on the Electric Company as a child, he had the most amazing voice, as he narrated episodes of Spider Man on that show. Those episodes were actual still images of the Spider Man comic book drawings with his voice reading the dialogue in the "thought bubbles", decades before the Marvel Studios explosion that we have now.  I've followed his work and been inspired by him my whole life. When I do…

Oprah, Oprah, Oprah.....

My patience and my faith in justice, fairness, and the promise of equality in America, has been tested throughout my entire life...yours too, I'm sure.  However, while I feel our country is in a particularly dark period now, with our current president at the helm and with the de-regulation of government protections moving ahead at steady clip, I'm fully aware that there are amazing things happening every day all around the world. It takes amazing people to make these things happen. Oprah Winfrey is one of…

Rogues gallery high profile sexual predators

Sexual predators in the workplace, folks are not having it any more.

Regarding the tidal wave of sexual harassment and misconduct allegations among high profile celebrities, corporate titans, and politicians, I can only say, bring them on.  There's a much needed awakening, cleansing and sea change happening in our country.  Women are simply not taking it any more and realizing that with personal courage and with the strength in their numbers, they have the power to speak out, survive, and prosper.   Much like the way cell phone videos and body camera have exposed what…

MUSIC - Releases re-imagined

I love remixes. Ever since the 90's when the remix really came into it's own, I've been a fan. When I get the chance to hand over one of my songs to another producer to re-imagine, I welcome it. You just never know what they'll bring to it and the song lives another life.  I've posted a two songs below in their original versions,  Brooce Swayne and Summer Sky, along with their remixes by two seriously gifted producers, Darren Solomon and Matt Henderson.  I thought while I was at it, I would share the original version of Screaming Headless Torsos’ Running Black Water from our 2014 album,  Code Red along with the new live version featuring special guest Hiromi on piano released in July 2017.  Songs re-imagined.
