Something different my beloved readers, I am more than thrilled and overjoyed to see my contribution to the new Blaze Foley book in print – .
I would like to express a huge thank you to Kai and Carmen Nees for their tireless work in promoting and spreading the word about this largely unheralded songwriting genius.
To give some context, I was asked during the quiet (for touring musicians!) days of Covid if I would write some words about one of my favourite Blaze Foley records and the impact it has had on me. I considered it a real privilege to be asked and another just as great to have this rare opportunity to pay tribute to one of my own songwriting inspirations.
Please read more about the project here, this latest publication is for now only available in German, but it is intended to also publish it in English at a later date.
And if you’ve never heard Blaze Foley’s music, please take the chance to investigate it when you can, you will not be disappointed.
Love to you all.
