On Saturday evening, the talent level kept going up. I tapped out on the first round of it stepping up, then a couple of the guys who I wanted to hear rather than play after ("Follow THAT!") tapped out, and again until it was Rick Hatfield (not on Chordie, but a truly astoundingly good musician), Gary Owens (an old friend of mine), Steve Hochberg (an astounding bassist from Topdown's neck of the woods), Topdawgz, and two drummers Cowboy Keith (a childhood friend of Topdown's) and Ed Burrows (local to Jeff's place in Florida). These guys played for an hour or so doing some work that would have entertained anyone of any caliber, and then it came back down as they realized they chased some folks off and felt badly about it. Believe me, it was a boon to my ego to play my song about cleaning urine out of carpets to get a laugh and "That's a fun song," from the likes of them.
