I been thinkin alot about Kenny lately, we were good friends We lost him to pancreatic cancer about 7 yrs ago. Everytime I do a gig I get emotional and think about him alot. He come home and spent some time with me before he died. I played him some John Prine and Steve Goodman songs and it really pleased him.
I played the song the " Dutchman" by Steve Goodman at my daughter's wedding shower and was cruising along through the first verse and chorus great, got to the second verse and my voice was quivering and by the third I was in trouble. It was really weird it was like a huge wave hit me with emotions, I had to excuse myself and went outside to compose myself.
I have 2 friends that have passed on and really liked all the old music I play and it is tough not to think about them when playing I am gonna have to try thinkin of them while practicing and see if I can channel it into some positive vibes.
