We Didn't Start The Fire · December 13, 2003 12:17 PM

I love a good Billy Joel tune don't you? Maybe some of you caught Greg's heartfelt rendition of 'Piano Man' on the last tour.

Have a good holidays folks.

No Seriously, Thank You... · December 2, 2003 09:00 PM

Well, I just got home, it feels weird, but it's nice to be back. Last night's show in Seattle was one of our best in my opinion, even though the crowd seemed a little 'reserved' at times. Being as it was the last night of the tour, the band let it all hang out, my fingers still hurt today. Thank you Seattle, what a wonderful gig to end the tour on.

I want to say a huge thank you to all the folks that came out to see us on the road this time around. I never felt alone in any city that we were in, TS fans really are a special breed. You guys gave us such love and support, I hope that we were able to repay you by giving you a night you will never forget.

So now we get to take a month off before rehearsals start for Europe. If anything happens in the meantime I'll be sure to let you know. I'm aware that a lot of you are asking for details about a second leg of a US tour, but I don't have any details right now, so sit tight and I'll let you know if it's going to happen in due time. One thing is for sure, those of you that got to see us in a small club, cherish it, 'cos it probably aion't going to happen again. Oh, and feel free to keep sending emails, now I have some time to answer them.

So, once again, thanks for all the love, you guys fucking rocked.

20 Something Down, 1 To Go · December 1, 2003 04:29 AM

It's 4:30am and the hotel in downtown Portland has become Twilight central. There's a lot of people here who I don't know, yet they seem to know me. This is what happens at the end of a tour, no sleep, questionable behavior, etc. Hold on, did I say the end? I mean the whole tour, oops. I think the Twilight Singers pick up where Led Zep left off, for better or for worse.

Portland got a healthy dose of rock tonight, and we were happy to deliver it. Joe Z. saved my ass when I came back out for The Killer and my bass rig was dead. Apparently one of my cables commited suicide during the break before the encore. Thanks Joe, I would never have figured it out.

So tomorrow we head to Seattle, thank the lord it's a short drive. You know it's going to be a fun show, the last night of the tour is always a night for pulling out all the stops. I'm gonna miss these guys. Until Europe that is.

By the way, all you folks who are bootlegging the shows, show a little class and send a copy to Lee so we can hear them, it's polite.

I'll try to report in before I head back to LA. Stay safe people.

Winding Down · November 30, 2003 05:32 AM

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving, hanging out with family and eating lots of turkey. Me, well I woke up around 6pm and went to the 101 diner in my local 'hood for a tuna melt, but then again I've never been one for tradition.

So, the next day I drove up to SF with my girl and my friend Tony to meet the rest of the band and play Slim's. I love San Francisco, it's possibly the only other city I could live in if I wasn't in LA. We had a great time playing last night, even though the SF crowd was somewhat 'reserved'. But eventually they threw down and got into the spirit of things, personally I blame it on the turkey.

We threw in a particularly cool version of Dixie Peach Promenade at the last minute, I love playing that song.

Afterwards a bunch of us went out to eat in the city, and I sat at a table with my girlfriend and my ex-girlfriend, which was a little weird, but surprisingly drama free. Life is bizarre sometimes isn't it?

I met a bunch of fans last night, some really cool folks, most of whom seem to know more about me than I do. Thanks for doing your research people.

It's about time for bed now, 5am in Portland, McCartney's on the TV, Joe's asleep in the other bed, and we have a show tomorrow night. We'll see you there.

A Sort Of Homecoming · November 27, 2003 02:53 AM

Just got home from the LA show. I must say that was one of the most fun experiences of my life. I don't think I have seen the band happier. We were surrounded by friends and family, and there was a lot of love in that room tonight.

Appolonia (yes, she of Purple Rain fame) and Petra Haden came out and sang Fat City and Teenage Wristband with us. However, the monitor guy was friggin' remedial and blew everyone's ears out for the first song. Joe Z., our illustrious production manager, tried to help the guy during soundcheck, but he was one of those typical know-it-all LA a-holes that actually doesn't know squat. Call me bitter, but that feedback nearly punctured my eardrums.

The band recovered though, and the set rocked hard. The crowd was with us every step of the way, and Greg was on fire. Joe came out and played cowbell on Uptown, he's getting pretty good at it.

Well, I'll be going to bed with a smile on my face tonight, as I'm sure many of those in attendance tonight will do too. Have a great turkey day people and we'll see you in San Francisco Friday night.

Home....Briefly · November 25, 2003 01:10 PM

Dallas, that show was so much fun. You guys made us feel like kings. For me, it was easily one of the top 3 shows on the tour, it really felt like the band was on fire at points, I couldn't wipe the grin off my face the whole time.

Greg was medicated on flu meds, but really if I hadn't have seen him backstage I would never have guessed he was so sick. Sorry we didn't have time to set merch up in Dallas, our tour manager Todd (who handles such things) was taking care of Greg, and I believe that was the priority right? I'm sure you guys will be able to buy stuff through the site soon anyway.

So Greg, Mathias and our manager Brian flew back to LA Monday morning. However, Bobby, John, Todd, the infamous Joe Z. and I braved the 24 hour drive from Dallas to LA non-stop. Seriously, you've never really lived until you pack 5 guys in a van for 24 hours straight. The mood swings alone are worth the price of admission. By the time we were hitting the LA suburbs I was about ready to destroy anyone that came into my path. Note to self: fly next time.

We rolled in around 4am this morning, and it was all worth it once I slipped into my own bed where my girl was waiting. Call me romantic, or call me really horny, you are probably right on both counts.

So now we get to rest up (and boy do we need it) for tomorrow night's show at the El Rey. I'm really looking forward to it, I hope you are too.

Third Times The Charm · November 23, 2003 04:38 PM

I'm sitting backstage in Dallas right now after just waking up. Just to let you guys know, Greg started feeling sick after last night's show, and although we are going to play Dallas tonight (we were so close), the Tempe show has been cancelled so that he can get 2 days of rest in LA. Sorry Tempe, we'll make it up to you I promise.

Anyway, here's the Texas recap thus far. I don't know if it was the fact that Houston was such an intimate (read small) show, or that we were punch drunk, but that was one of the most fun shows on the tour. For the second encore Bobby hit the stage solo and started playing the drum beat for Uptown, at which point the rest of us went into the audience and started clapping along. The look on Bobby's face when he looked up and saw us was priceless, my sides hurt so much from laughing.

We played like it was MSG, and the people of Houston treated us so well. Thank you guys, you rocked.

Last night we played Austin. Even though Greg was starting to feel sick, we still played like our lives depended on it. Personally I feel the encores were the best we've done. We decided to do the full version of 'Hey Ya', and pretty soon everyone was shaking it like a polaroid picture. Thank you Austin, the crowd was so appreciative, and we had a great time.

So, we'll see some of you guys in Dallas in a few hours, then we head back to LA for a well-earned day off, a chance to see our loved ones, sleeping in our own beds, and ready to rock the hell out of the El Rey.

Ciao Bella.

Don't Mess With Texas · November 21, 2003 06:50 PM

So I just got to the hotel in Houston after soundcheck, damn it's nice to have some DSL service finally, I miss the Internet, it's almost like I get withdrawals. The show promises to rock tonight, one thing for sure is it's going to be loud.

So let's see. After NYC we headed to Atlanta, where personally I think the band was the tightest sounding we have been the whole tour. It was a night of no stories apparently, Greg guided us from one song to the next, but there was a hell of a lot of jamming. Sometimes I feel like we are one big jam band , it's a good feeling. The people of Atlanta were amazing, and I want to thank Smith's for having us there, what a great room.

Last night we played New Orleans, which is a city where every night is Saturday night. John and I got a ride from a couple of girls who attend LSU and they told us about the drive through liquor stores and to-go cups at the bars. Apparently drunk driving laws are somewhat loose in the big easy.

The set was loose too, but it's NO, how could it not be. Mike Napolitano (co-producer of BB) joined us on stage for a few songs, which was a real treat. The man plays some wicked guitar. I think it was during Decatur that John and he traded licks, it was like playing in the Allman Bros.

I just want to say hi to all the great people we are meeting on our travels, and how much you all mean to us. Your hospitality is overwhelming at times, and we certainly do appreciate it.

Now I have to eat a steak before the show. After all, this is Texas y'all.

Southern Harmony... · November 18, 2003 11:44 AM

We just finished taping a radio show in NYC this morning for the World Cafe, and Lynard Skynard (sic) are setting up next door while Pat Benatar is doing an interview in another room. It's surreal.

Well, I hope you folks enjoyed our tribute to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band last night, after all it was NYC, we had to pay homage. By the time I came off stage all I could do was retreat to my hotel room and watch a remake of Children of the Corn. Damn, that was a long show.

Much love to the folks in NYC, I really love this city.

So after we get packed up here we are off to Atlanta. There's something about playing in the South which really excites me. Being English, I am fascinated with Blues and Southern rock, I'm sure some of that will be creeping into our set list.

Get some rest now if you are coming to the shows, they promise to make you shake your ass.

Damn I'm Hungry! · November 16, 2003 10:52 PM

I'm in Boston, I just got back to the hotel after playing and there is nowhere to eat around here. What the hell? I'm starving. Room service stopped at 11, so I guess I'm shit out of luck.

Anyway, I finally made it to a working Internet connection as you can see, so here's my recap of the last few days.

First off, DC people fucking rock. You guys were so cool to us and we totally appreciated it as I hope you could tell by the 2 1/2 hour show. The folks at the Black Cat were great, they made me some french fries that were the best I've ever had. Did I mention I was hungry? We'll definitely be back to DC.

That brings me to Philly. Nobody told me that the Khyber was about as big as our rehearsal space. You guys were jammed like sardines in there, but then again, so was the band. My leg kept falling asleep because if I moved I would have been sitting on the drums, and nobody wants that. All in all it was a great show. We had to cut it a bit short (not much), because there was a curfew we were about to go over. Apparently 1:45am on a Saturday night is late in Philly. Go figure.

Tonight we played Boston, which is always a fun time. The crowd was great, but they could have made more noise. Sometimes in between songs I felt like I was in a library. I understand though, all y'all are waiting for some Dulli story and don't want to interrupt, so on that level, you are very polite. This is rock n'roll though, so make some noise. Still, even though I blew a speaker during the set, I had a great time.

Tomorrow morning we head to NYC, I heard the show is sold out, but then again since Omaha they pretty much have all been sold out. I can't wait to get there, I love that city, probably because it is so much like London.

I fotta go find a diner, night all.

p.s. Thanks for all your emails, I have so many that it's impossible to reply to them all, but I will try.

Day Off · November 13, 2003 08:07 PM

So last night's show was our 7th in a row, you can only imagine how happy we are to have a day off. We did the overnight drive frome Cleveland (you guys were great), and ended up in D.C. this morning.

I took a little nap after we got here and woke up after dark, I guess we were all a little tired. Apparently there are gale force winds blowing through D.C. tonight, or at least it sure feels like it.

Tomorrow I am planning on visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, I have never had the time to see it in person and I can't be here and let that chance slip by.

Did you se that Britney interview tonight btw? Goddamn...

OK, see you guys tomorrow night.

Hello Cleveland! · November 12, 2003 03:24 PM

Well, for those of you in attendance last night, I think we can all agree that was a great show. The audience was amazing, they were with us from the first note, so thanks you guys. If Rick had been there it would have been a full on AW reunion for the encores.

The Southgate House was overflowing, about 800 people at last count. The room reminded me of the Hammersmith Palais back in London, a really cool ballroom with a balcony that wraps all the way around.

I got to play guitar while John played bass last night on the Whigs songs, that was fun as hell.

It was great to finally meet Lee who runs this site, what a sweet guy. Thanks Lee, you are a gentlemen and a scholar.

We'll see you guys at the Grog Shop tonight.

Detroit Rock City · November 11, 2003 02:02 PM

People, hate the game not the player. Personally I had a great time in Chicago, and thanks for two packed nights all you DD people. Joe S. took us out to a great meal Sunday night, what a great guy, you people are lucky to have him.

For me the latest highlight of the tour was last night in Detroit, I don't think we could have asked for a better crowd, you guys were simply amazing. I'm not good with names, but I met a bunch of you and wanted to publicly thank you for your enthusiasm, it means a lot.

Tonight we play Kentucky. I'm sitting in the Southgate House right now as I type this, what a cool place this is. This is my first time here, so I hope you people can show me what your city is about tonight.

I'm gonna head to soundcheck now, so we'll see you tonight, get ready for a long one.

The Windy City · November 9, 2003 04:30 PM

Actually it's not that windy, but it's still cold. However, last night at the Double Door things got a little hotter.

The club was sold out last night and you could tell, it was packed to the rafters, which is a great feeling for the band as you can imagine. We got a bit of a late start, don't blame us, there's a lot to do in Chicago, but we finally hit the stage around midnight. When we came off stage at 2:30am we were all still ready to go, but apparently there's a curfew or something.

I came to sometime this morning (after a long night of revelry), and went to see Dan Lakin at Lakland who hooked me up with some sweet basses, thanks so much Dan, you are a good man.

I'm gonna go eat some dinner now and start warming up for tonight. For those of you that were here last night, get ready, because tonight the Twilight Singers are gonna take you on a journey.

I'm hungry.

No, seriously, it's cold as hell... · November 8, 2003 01:38 AM

So today is the first chance to get online, we've been doing a lot of travelling, you understand right?

First, the kids in Omaha rocked hard, you guys were great and it was so cool to meet all of you. More bands need to play Omaha, they are starving for cool bands there apparently.

This morning we piled in the van and headed to Minnesota for tonight's show. I gotta be honest, none of us had really slept much, but the energy of the crowd was so electric tonight that I didn't even remember I was tired.

Greg invited a special friend to come up and play the encores, and suddenly Rick McCollum was there playing a bunch of Whigs material with us. The crowd seemed to appreciate it, as we certainly did too.

OK, onto Chicago in the morning, we'll see you there. Bring a jacket, it's freezing.

My God It's Cold Here · November 5, 2003 01:06 PM

Well Denver, we came, we rocked, we are now driving to Omaha. Just wanted to say a big thanks to all of you that came out last night, it really was a great time for us, especially for a first show. I think we jammed so much that at some point I forgot we actually had a set list. I think we played for about 2 hours, lord knows how long the set will be by the time we hit Seattle.

Greg was his usual jovial self, he really got into telling stories last night, it was hard not to crack up while playing.

Thanks a lot to Adam and Dani at the Bluebird, they really took care of us, everyone was really cool. Oh, and we did play Rhiannon last night just to clear that up.

So, onto Omaha, we'll see you there tomorrow night, don't forget to bring your dancing shoes.

Rock Steady Baby... · November 4, 2003 01:24 PM

Wow, I'm tired. We left Vegas at 11am yesterday (incident free I may add), and rolled into Denver at 7:30 this morning. The conditions in the mountains were a little icy shall we say, so rather than slide off the edge of a cliff we had to drive slower than my grandma. Seriously, I thought we were going to die at some points, but we all survived, woo-hoo.

I just saw the set-list for tonight. If you are coming to the Denver show get ready for a long night, and be prepared to get sweaty.

I've had about 5 hours sleep in 2 days, so I'm a little punchy right now, it should prove for a great show tonight. We are all really excited about playing, I hope you are too.

Apparently the Philly show has sold out, and I guess the first night in Chicago too. You guys rock. Make sure you rocky mountain folks stop by and say hello to me tonight, it's good to have friends in high places (mountains, get it?)

Gonna take a nap...

On The Road Again... · November 2, 2003 10:36 AM

So today is the day, we finally leave LA and head out on tour. I know I forgot to pack something. I have that strange mixture of excitement and homesickness already. Going on tour feels like you are going off to summer camp when you are little, except it's in hotels and it's way easier to get drugs.

The band is heading to Las Vegas tonight to hang out and do some 'bonding', keep your fingers crossed that we make it out of there alive. Vegas is always a test for me, seriously, what the hell is there to do there other than get into trouble? Then tomorrow morning we have the long drive to Denver. I don't really know Denver all that well, so if any of you folks want to drop me a suggestion for a bar/club/caligula-like event to hang out at Monday night, please do.

Our tour manager Todd is going to help me with the Internet stuff while on tour, so hopefully this won't be my last entry. I'm not 'computer savvy' as they say, luckily Todd is.

So goodbye LA, hello tour bus, and we'll see you out there. Remember to bring a friend.

All Hallows Eve · October 31, 2003 06:04 PM

So I'm starting to pack for the tour, I had to go buy a bunch of thermal shirts and stuff, I didn't actually own any. If the rest of the country is as cold as LA is tonight on this Halloween, I believe I made a wise decision. What's that you say? 60 degrees isn't cold? Damn I'm in trouble.

The rehearsals are done, the next time we'll play together is Tuesday night In Denver. We are all really excited, and it'll be great to get the hell out of LA for a while.

So many of you have emailed me and I really appreciate it. It'd be great to meet up with you guys before and after the shows, this tour is as much about you as it is about the band. I am also on the lookout for great bass stores around the country, so if any of you have suggestions I'd really appreciate them. Anyone have an 'in' with Lakland in Chicago?

I'll write my final entry tomorrow before we leave here, and tell you how I met the Twilite Kid and got involved with all of this.

Have fun trick or treating tonight, remember to use protection.

England 2, Germany 0 · October 30, 2003 11:31 PM

So the first day I meet Mathias Schneeberger is the day I track 'Martin Eden'. The Kid introduces him as 'the crazy german'. Immediately I want to let him know I was English and that we won, twice, but I let it slide. I would have also added the 1966 World Cup victory but I didn't want to come off too strong, it was my first day after all.

Mathias is über-talented when it comes to music, as I witnessed him layering guitar tracks that day, and then effortlessly switching to keys. Throw in the fact that he towers over me, and the intimidation started factoring in.

But I needn't have worried. Sure he's loud, of course he's opinionated, yes he can suck the air out of the room faster than the turnover at Treblinka, but goddamn he's a great piano player.

For those of you that don't know, Mathias co-produced BB, no easy feat I assure you. The way he fills the songs with lush melodies is inspirational to me as a bass player. Apparently he never got to see the Beatles at the Kaiserkeller, but I don't hold that against him.

Make sure you buy him a drink when you see him, you'll make a friend for life.

Livin' On A Player... · October 29, 2003 11:20 PM

As a session bassist I've played with some of the greatest guitar players on the planet, I've been real lucky in that area. I'll never be a great lead guitarist, I just don't have the patience, so when I get to play with one I appreciate it all the more.

So at Twilight HQ one day, the Twilite Kid introduces me to this cat called Jon Skibic and tells me he's going to play guitar on tour. Now I'd heard some of Jon's playing on the rough mixes for BB, so I knew he was talented, but nothing had prepared me for the riffing that I was about to experience for the next few hours.

Whatever I threw at Jon he volleyed back at me at light speed, and I can throw some mean curveballs. He's one of those Berekely School of Music guys that can play just about anything and isn't afraid to let you know. I used to hate those guys until I met Jon.

Hailing from New Jersey (land of the axeman), Jon has already experienced success with his own bands, the Gigolo Aunts and Ivy. One time I asked him if he knew Richie Sambora and he ignored me.

Skibic and the Kid started playing together in 2000, so you know he's cool if he's still in the fold by 2003.

Personally I'm honored to be playing with him, and as the Kid says, 'He's the Steve Gaines to my Ronnie Van Zant.'

Oh, and a big shout out to Candace, Jon's longtime girlfriend. Sorry ladies...

He ain't heavy, he's my drummer... · October 28, 2003 11:45 AM

You can always tell from the band photo which one's the drummer can't you? Bobby Macintyre is no exception. The first time I met him was on a session we were both doing for a mutual friend of ours, and I couldn't help but notice that his shoes were spray-painted silver.

He must have knocked out that drum track in the time it took me to go score a Red Bull at the 7-11 around the corner. Bobby doesn't fuck around.

So when we were putting the band together and this guy walks in, it wasn't until I spotted the silver shoes that I remembered who he was. Being the bass player, it's really important that I groove with the drummer, and from the first note it was obvious that Bobby was the guy.

Born and raised in Miami, Bobby moved to Chicago before coming to LA about 5 years ago. LA has never been the same since. Voted most likely to need bail money on the upcoming tour, Bobby is a powerhouse drummer and one of the funniest, most thoughtful guys I've ever had the pleasure to play with.

Summer in October · October 27, 2003 09:52 PM

I grew up in England. About this time of year we would be bundling up in our coats and wearing a sweater or two, and still be cold. It's not like that in LA. It's 10 at night and I have the AC pumping, it's so weird. I don't know if it's the heat from the firestorm we are experiencing, or it's just unusually warm, but I find myself yearning for Fall. I have a feeling we are gonna find it next week in Chicago.

Over the next few days I'm gonna clue you in to the rest of the Twilight Singers, so you guys can say hi to all of us when we hit your town. It's less than a week until we leave now, time to start packing and figuring out what we can live without for the next month. The espresso machine is staying.

I'm playing a gig tomorrow night at the Hollywood Athletic Club in LA with Camp Freddy. I have no idea about the details, but maybe I'll see some of you there.

Nice to see BB is getting such great reviews, thanks so much to Lee for this site, he's a good man. Ciao for now.

T.G.I.F. · October 24, 2003 06:33 PM

I still get excited on Friday's that there's no school tomorrow.

You may have heard that my side band, Camp Freddy, is playing in LA on Tuesday, and it's true. I don't have the details yet, but I'll post them when I do. I know it's got something to do with Frederick's of Hollywood...

Some of you emailed me about video-taping the upcoming shows. Now, I know it's all for private use, etc., but the band has a strict policy of no taping, so please don't bring a video camera, it ain't gonna happen.

We only have a few more rehearsals until we hit the road, I don't know who's more excited, the band or the fans. I just want to say thanks for all the great emails from you guys about the album, we are all so happy you dig it.

Have a great weekend.

Goodbye Elliot... · October 22, 2003 01:37 PM

If you haven't already heard, the great Elliot Smith died today, apparently from a suicide. I'm really sad. Elliot was one of those super talented guys who could play just about anything, his albums were works of art. I was lucky enough to meet him a few years ago, and even then I noticed his drug habit had a hold on him. Stay clear of heroin people, it doesn't care how talented you are. I'll really miss him, just like Jeff Buckley, both were only here for a short time but their contributions to music were huge.

Suggested listening:

Elliot Smith - XO
Elliot Smith - Figure 8

Tell me why... · October 20, 2003 07:13 PM

My hands hurt. some would say it's from playing Splinter Cell till the wee hours of the morning (and they might be right), but I tend to think it's from the hours of rehearsing we are doing. The band is real tight at this point, it's almost like there's some sort of musical telepathy happening.

So I've been filling up the iPod for the tour, and here's my top 3 albums of the moment:

Grandaddy - The Sophtware Slump
The Polyphonic Spree - Beginning Stages Of...
Rancid - Indestrutible

If you guys have any suggestions for new discs I should be checking out, just drop me a line, gotta feed that jones.

I also realized I have way too many basses, so if you are interested in picking up a P-Bass email me for the details. Did you ever see that John Entwhistle film where he has like 500 basses? Well, I'm stopping at a considerably lower number.

Thanks for all the praise about the new album, spread the word folks, let's see if we can get this one to curtail the flow of Limp Bizkit crap that pollutes our airwaves. After all, they are ours aren't they?

10.18.03 · October 18, 2003 12:48 PM

Woke up this morning (insert blues song here), and realized we leave for the tour in 2 weeks. This would probably be a good time for me to invest in a jacket, apparently the rest of the country isn't spoiled like we are here in LA with our warm winters.

Rehearsals are going great, personally I think we are ready to hit the road tomorrow, but I guess some extra practice won't hurt. This is a rock n' roll band folks, make no mistake about that. We are working up so many songs, there's nothing like playing different set-lists every night, keeping it fresh for us and you guys.

Thanks for all the emails, maybe you guys could send some pics of you so I can recognize you when we hit your town, it's always nice to put a face with a name.

Enjoy Blackberry Belle....

So today the rest of the world gets to hear what I've had the privilidge to be listening to for a while now. Go seek out the 'Belle', slap some headphones on, turn it up real loud, and lose yourself for a while.

Thanks for all the emails, I'll get back to everyone in due time.

Here We Go... · October 11, 2003 05:56 PM

When Greg and I were discussing the tour at the start of this year, both of us thought it would be a really cool idea to do an online journal documenting the goings on in the Twilight camp. Lee must have read our minds, because that's exactly what he suggested to us, so here it is. I just want to thank Lee for taking the time to do this and for running Summers Kiss, he does a really great job.

I'll be using this to ramble on endlessly in all probability, hopefully it will occasionally be punctuated by humor or insight, or both, but don't hold your breath. After all, I'm a bass player, not a writer.

Once we hit the road you can all expect daily updates, but for now I'll just write when something is going on that I think you guys might want to hear about.

Remember that the new album, Blackberry Belle, drops this Tuesday, Oct. 14th, so let us know what you think of it once you grab a copy. We all worked really hard on it and are excited about you guys finally hearing it.

Lee was kind enough to setup an email address for me, so if you want to drop me a line please send it to scott@summerskiss.com. I'll answer any questions I can, but I won't reveal any setlist plans, etc., you guys want to be surprised right?

Remember folks, black out the windows, it's party time...
