We are on our way north for the next Remainders show at the Nokia Center in New York City. It’s been a fun tour, and I just want to share a couple of highlights. On our first night Amy Tan broke out her portable Karaoke machine and since Roger McGuinn was with us, we dialed up “Turn, Turn, Turn.”...

This coming week the Rock Bottom Remainder—the nation’s foremost all-author garage band—may well be performing in a city near you, especially if Washington DC (4/21), Philadelphia (4/22), New York (4/23), or Boston (4/24) are ”a city near you.” If you ask the average woman on the street about the...

This April, the Rock Bottom Remainders will tour the east coast: DC, Philly, NYC, and Boston--then come home and sleep for a week because our all-author garage band has been playing bad rock & roll for good causes since 1992, lurching our way through baby-boomer middle-age. Check out  my events...

Today I would like to talk to you about a matter of the utmost importance, as indicated in the headline above. I can give you a call, or we can meet at the Starbucks on California and Battery in San Francisco. It’s going to take me a while to get there because I’m in Nashville right now. Come to...

No one remembers exactly how it started. My best guess is that my friend George, a diehard sports fan, spouted some inanity about his favorite team and I responded with a feisty “wanna bet?” The race was on. The result is that for the last twenty years or so, George and I have bet on every...

One spring night in 2002, I walked out on a New York stage without a clue that the evening would include a life-changing moment. Sure, it was exciting: the Rock Bottom Remainders, an all-author band I’d started on a whim ten years before, was about to play a sold-out anniversary show at Webster...

The morning before Thanksgiving, I woke up to find our garage door wide open and two cars gone, along with most of our music equipment. Among the items taken was my fabulous Leopard-skin Pillbox Strat. (This is a one-of-a-kind electric guitar decked out in a fringed, fuzzy animal-print slipcover I...
