If anybody ever asks you if you’d like to play some of the greatest music ever composed with @deadandcompany on a beach in Mexico, with a cool breeze blowing and people dancing in the water, don’t overthink it. Just say “yes.” What a blast that was. A perfectly planned event. 🙌🏼🏖 📷@jayblakesberg
“The Principles of Adult Behavior,” written by John Perry Barlow, who sadly passed away yesterday. John was (among many other things) one of the lyricists for Grateful Dead. He wrote this on his 30th Birthday. Damned if it don’t hold up. Love to his family, the guys in the band, and his fans around the world. ♥️
#tbt 1999, outside the Majestic Diner in Atlanta, GA. I was there shooting the cover for my first EP. And by “shooting the cover” I mean that I handed a point-and-shoot camera to a friend. This photo is from the same roll as the cover shot. Okay fine, it was the only roll. But I made it work. The rest, as they say, is on Wikipedia.
Join John in giving back to charity this year. Take home a this guitar he personally signed on IfOnly & proceeds will benefit the Fairfield County Community Foundation and Back To You Fund!
It’s a #tbd AND an HBD! Happy Birthday Alicia Keys. Here’s us on 6/12/07. Over a decade ago. “Life ain’t short but it sure is small,” and I get peace from knowing you and I are on this cosmic ride at the same time. And you know what? I’ll say in front of the world: you’re a role model of mine. May your ride just keep getting better. ♥️🎂
2018: a return to naturalism. Let’s correspond. Real paper. Real ink. Real names. Here’s the plan: get yourself a typewriter (@californiatypewriter has some great ones) and send me a one page, properly formatted letter (formal or informal) and I will reply to a few every morning. Include return postage if you’re overseas. PO Box 3784

Well, that was unreal. I got to play with Steve Miller (and some other incredible guitarists) on one of the greatest rock songs of all time, “The Joker.” Retirement concert for the incomparable #dickboak who worked many years at @martinguitar putting the best acoustic guitars in the hands of artists all around the world. Love ya Dick, happy trails. ♥️#Repost @mandeemcevoy
