Speaks his mind on music & movies!
Last year I posted some guest shots from you, my friends. One of them was titled ‘Townes’. A rare thing indeed. What does someone (Aphoristic) from New Zealand and a Babyhead have in common? That’s easy, Townes Van Zandt.
A while back I got together with another music friend (Vinyl Daft Dad) of mine and we had a good time at the “Morrison Hotel”. Through that meeting I got invited down to Texas to pound a few ales and talk some Townes with Greenpete58. So I jumped a fast freight down and arrived a little wired and thirsty and ready to whet my whistle with my friend Pete and the ghost of Townes. And you know what? I enjoyed every minute of it.
Townes is some of that music that I really go to a lot. My friend Pete is a man of words (and many other things) and so is Townes Van Zandt. Not just words but how he uses them and how he sings (feels) them. I can’t speak for Pete but I would guess that he gets moved by Townes in some of the same ways I do. I’ve wanted to do a take on TVZ for a long time. He’s been coming up in my thoughts so when Pete came up with this idea I jumped at it (and jumped a train). Thanks for including me Pedro. It’s Townes time. I really think he’s someone people should know about.
So join us at ‘The Texas Rose Cafe’ for a cup of coffee, eggs and bacon. maybe a little chili, burritos, enchiladas and a few beers and oh yeah a big side of Townes. Man, that’s livin’.
