Like a hurricane

So, I've been watching Neil Young videos for the past hour or so and I tripped across something quite peculiar. Adam Sandler doing a SERIOUS cover of Neil? And it's not too bad -- except I expect him to do that "dippy" voice at any time. He only gets close at the end when he starts yelling "blown away" -- sounds like "give me a damn snack pack!"

Also, has Radiohead covered every Neil Young song every released? It's actually a good fit voice-wise. Never realized before. Finally, check out Neil's duet with Paul McCartney on "A Day in the Life." Both look wild. And Paul appears not to know what to do with himself.

Anyhow, the band -- our band -- played a pretty fun show the other night out at the Lizard Lounge. Actually, it was really fun, just a wee bit disappointing in the amount of folks who showed up. But Sir Paul was in town, and Blink-182, and how do you compete with that?

All in all, I'm looking forward to hitting the road next month with those Tenderhooks. Seems to be a good time in store.
SET LIST: A Hard Rain / Ordinary Girls / Lights On / Research Blvd / Carolyn, Don't Leave Like This / Madeline / There's a Reason / Golden Fleece / On Lam / Whitewashed / Seek Cover / Cedar / I Come From the Water / Shotgun Wedding / Shine a Light

Beyond that show, things have been crazed, trying to get ready for the album's release and the tour. Real crazy.
