    Acoustic Is The Best

    Acoustic just gives you that vibe. Like an orgasmic sensation without it being all sexual if you get what I'm saying. It can make you cry. It can make you fall in love. I make acoustic versions of everything. I've made acoustic versions of 'pressure' 'fixed at zero' and many more...

    They Never Get Old

    I have a newly found appreciation for acoustic music. When I have the chance, I've been listening to the Alice in Chains unplugged disk. It's one of those rare disks I can listen to from beginning to end and never get tired of. In particular, I'm loving "Nutshell," "Down in a...

    Somewhere around 1990 I was listening to a smooth jazz station, for lack of anything else to do. (Smooth jazz doesn't go over big in my city, and said station wasn't exactly a popular one. It's since disappeared, many years ago.) The DJ announced a free pair of tickets to see...
