I enjoyed being a guest on KOPN’s midnight rock show “Seven”…we had a great chat about music and life in general, and played a great range of music. The show can be streamed for a limited amount of time if you’d like to catch it. Just click this link, then choose the date 8/23, and the show “Seven.”  There’s some good rockin’, then I come into the show after Yes’s “Owner of a Lonely Heart.”

A new video using music from “Nine Lives” reveals the unspoken sentiment behind the sounds. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
