As you may know, my son Alex has 2 bands: Tiajuana Caravan and, the off shoot, The Tall Boys. When Alex was in the crib we placed a toy guitar next to him and it took root.  He now has more than 20 guitars and has become, to my taste, a very entertaining and talented performer fronting and writing songs for his bands.  I know no greater thrill (kvell) than to be standing before him photographing and videoing  his performances.  Just 2 Saturday nights ago I again enjoyed this ...

I have learned why I have become addicted to my iPhone and Social Media.   For background, please read my Friday With Fred blog of two weeks ago: I'm Addicted. It seems that when one garners a Facebook "Like" or comment it stimulates the body to produce the chemical dopamine and when that happens, as the great James Brown exclaimed, "I Feel Good!"I admit that I post my blog on Facebook and Twitter to broaden its reach. However, even more rewarding than a Facebook reaction or ...

Bob Dylan is a contemporary and, with all his deserved glory, I wonder, if he was asked whether he has enjoyed a good life, would he answer candidly and what would he say?I imagine it's not easy being an artist, with the relentless pressure to continue to create and live up to an earlier iconic image.

Elvis would have been 81 today. I wrote my best poem, The King, about Elvis.  I adored the early Elvis as he came up in synch with my teenage hormonal awakening.  Then he had to go into the Army. I once had a momentary one on one exchange with him.  It was in his post Army-Vegas period.  My Damon Runyon father had taken me to Vegas as a coming of age graduation present.  One night I wandered over to a near empty crap table, put my money on the line, looked up and across the t...

The Traveling Wilburys were a Super Music Group first made famous by Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne.  They recorded two great albums in the late 80s and their "End of the Line" music will live forever. Someone utilized a clever turn of phrase and adopted their name for a fun loving later day group of marauding travelers who sometimes make road trips to visit a distant Gotham Group as is happening today down in Princeton. Our group (pictured ...
