Solo in Cleveland / NEW WEB SITE

Hey Scouts,

Listen up, we now have a new revamped web site.

For all you cubical dwellers out there, you already know that

we here at CP Inc. are dedicated to bringing our customers

the best in high quality time wasting web pages.

This site would not have been possible without Henning

Ejnefjäll who is retiring the from the CP dot com business.

For the many of you who grew accustomed to clicking right on

in to this unsavoury blend to find dates, venues and the usual

Mischief, hey, hoist one for Henning who took this CP.com

web site out for a joy ride some ten years ago and has been

behind the wheel ever since. Through thick and thinner,

through no less than hundreds upon hundreds of "hits" and too

many pages too count, Henning kept the site up and running

(without interruption we might add) he's now turned the reins

over to our new web-master, Dan Prothero.

Henning, I salute you my brother. You're always welcome on

the bandstand. [Folks, not only is Henning a motherfucker

when it comes to writing code (whatever that is), in Swedish

no less (!) he's also been known to sit in on guitar with the

band from time to time.] In fact, if you dig hard enough,

you'll find a copy of the roots record Henning made for EMI

Sweden some years back. Be it Hamburg, Germany or Edinburgh,

Scotland or wherever Ryan Air flies for eight Euro's round

trip. Henning, give Dan Kennedy the word, and he'll book the flight.

Also, thanks to Maartin out of Amsterdam who hosted this

thing gratis all these years.

Yours,

CP

——————————————————————————————————

GIGSVILLE USA: Lee Hazlewood Tribute

This Sunday November 2nd at the Make-Out Room 8:00 PM, $7

——————————————————————————————————

Tom Heyman and co. are the backing band for this cavalcade of starz singing a Lee song (or two).

Stephie and I are each doing a song or two along with: Marc Dantona (Pillars of Silence), Kelley Stoltz, Meghan Edwards (Pillars of Silence), James Finch (Jackpot, Prairie dog, Two Sheds), Justin Frahm (This Union Standard, Harbours), Warren Hugel (Citay, Tussle), Charlie Knote, Jeffrey Luck Lucas, Josh Polluck (Citay), Meryl Press, Chris Sipe (The Herms), Sean Smith (Solo, Citay),Brian Sullivan (This Union Standard) and more...

Lee was a kinky dude. The Jim Thompson of rock and roll if there ever was one. When he passed away last year he left behind a mess of great songs.

When Dan Stuart and I met Lee, by chance, in a Scottsdale AZ. studio years ago, we asked him what if any new music he was into. Lee, who was genuinely surprised we knew who he was, started raving about Bobby McFerrin's, "Don't Worry Be Happy" which was a big hit at the time. Lee knew what time it was. Lee was a kinky dude.

I picked Kelley up on the way; when he climbed in the car with a stack of Randy Newman records, a Sharpie and a camera, I was like, "Kelley, what are you DOING with that stuff?

My own dear sweet mother said to me, "John McCain? He's too o-o-old!

You don't want him running this country. Trust me, I'm married to a guy that old. You don't want that."

I'll be playing the benefit acoustic. Maybe I can talk Stephie into coming down and singing with me. As for the schedule: Parker says, "First band (Virgil) 9:30...I would say you would be on by 11 pm or so...."

Come to think of it, Mom, you're right. John McCain can't even remember how many houses he has. I mean, I have the same problem, but without the hard-on for the presidency. I'm not looking to run anything, not even the PA. On the other hand, I do want to live long enough to be a cranky, crotchety, old dude myself. But I digress.

Open Mind Music throws in the towel. Yes, my friends, once again we must report that due to changing times, rising rents and greedy "super size me" developers, Henry Wimmer's Open Mind Music will be closing its doors once and for all.

Before they toss up a Staples in its place, we're celebrating with a kegger. I'm dragging my PA down, and there'll be a cluster-lunch of bands playing in the shop all day. A BBQ in the backyard! Booze too, I hear. I'll be playing with my band Ray and running the PA.

Won't you be with us when the deal goes down?

The fun starts at 2 PM. Henry's got a deep reserve of vinyl and he'll be pricing it to move. Get there early to score before it's picked over.

Comedian and former host of Vinyl Justice, Barry Sobel will be coming out of retirement to MC the party.

I doubt the Obama benefit will change anything; I mean, I doubt I could change anyone's mind. Still, I'll be curled up in front of the TV in the fetal position when the big day comes; and I'll still get up on the other side of the bed on election day for good luck, and I'll probably never own a guitar with my name written in the neck.

But I might get a tattoo of Winnie the Pooh on my neck someday.
