Been a while but here’s why

Dear readers and folowers of Damn Good Tunes(.com);

We are very much still in business but have been working with a reduced crew and a full load of publishing of articles and interviews. In my personal life someone very dear to me and my family was taken ill one month ago and is now making a full recovery, so we are moving forward once again.
This has been an incredible summer season which has been filled with tragedy and pain for many with the storms and the spring floods and don’t forget the devastating Japan earthquake. Many people are still trying to get back on their feet. Heck, the folks from hurricane Katrina haven’t fully done that even yet so it’s hard for people. Very hard. Still, the music, the ” show must go on ” and go on it has. There’s a lot of great music happening around the world and much of it is coming from the USA despite our failing economy and tired old politicians whose actions and the trickle-down effect on Wall Street affects everyone. Musicians already had a hard enough time just trying to survive, let alone to secure financing for their equipment. Guitars, amps, drums and keyboards and PA systems are as vital as a carpenter’s box of power tools. You have to have them so you can make the music. So we’re all feeling it. Oh yes, just in case
you don’t know, this publisher wasn’t born with a silver spoon so I’m still a working musician out there hitting the gigs like the rest of you. No ivory towers on the DGT account!
As we all head into the Fall which is coming up on us like a solar storm, let’s try and keep our wits about us and do the right things and be real good at what we love to do. Myself, I would be happy to entertain anyone who will listen. It’s just a lot better when we’re professionally acknowledged and compensated.
Whatever you’ve been through wherever you are sitting and reading this, just know that DGT is on your side. We feel you, we know. Our prayers and good thoughts continue on for those of you who lost so much these past months. Take care.
