With the upcoming birthdays of such rockabilly luminaries as Sam Phillips, Scotty Moore, and Elvis, as well as the deaths of Buddy Holly, Bill Haley, and Carl Perkins, I thought I'd pay tribute with a bit of rockabilly guitaring.

And we've learned that people want to get attacked by a bat while listening to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. On Arbor Day.
Busy days lately. Davey and I have been sequestered in a hotel writing songs every day this week.

I just did the sorriest wrapping job ever on these poor presents.

New poll. This is important stuff people.

edit: Let me clarify here, this is not a baseball bat, this is a bat, possible a vampire bat or maybe a fruit bat, but it will be flying all in your hair, biting and scratching at you, maybe making racist or sexist remarks.
Don't be too quick to choose that.

In a major upset America is pwned by Arbor Day. Who would have thought. Take a bow, X-mas, you are the most loved.
What is everyone wanting this year?

I just had to come up with my Top 10 albums and Top 10 songs for 2007 and it was immensely difficult. I really had to dig to even come up with 10 songs that I honestly enjoyed this entire year.
That's sad isn't it?
What's going on with music these days?
Are we enjoying it less because it's easier to get or is there just a lack of truly great songs being written?
Brian Wilson, of the Beach Boys, who was one of the greatest songwriters of his generation, and of all time, was driving in 1967 when he heard the Beatles song "Strawberry Fields Forever" for the first time. He was so affected by the song that he had to pull over on the side of the road. He later said that this song was one of the reasons that the Beach Boys masterpiece album "Smile", went off the rails.
I'm always amazed by that story and saddened that there aren't many songs these days, if any, that can affect people so viscerally.
Has anyone had that feeling in their life, where you hear a song for the first time and you're just absolutely floored by it?
