I had just discovered that I could record live with my MacBook Pro built-in camera and mic, so I opened up the laptop, set it on my piano and did "Walking In Memphis." Not the best version, but a great crowd!
This is an angry Trump rant. If you are a fan of Trump, you would probably not like me very much. Though you might still enjoy my music. I won't blame you if you don't listen. I'm a man of principles myself, so I understand.

This song is from the CD "The Light Of Reason."
I ripped the crotch of my pants right before I performed - all the way down my leg. Fav old pair of jeans. I was sweating bullets after my wife brought a new pair of pants and I changed and set up quickly. Took about 5 songs to get in the zone.
