Acting and performing is a rewarding but often exhausting profession.  At the end of the run of the Buddy Holly Story, my muscles protested and my brain needed new batteries.  On that particular closing night, I had picked up my girlfriend early from the airport; I had flown to Victoria and back for an emergency [...]

53 years ago today…

Today is another busy day in the studio working on the new Human Statues album. It’s sounding really good. As I have a moment sit as Jeff records an acoustic track, I realize today is the anniversary of Buddy Holly’s untimely passing. I already posted this article last March but in light of today being [...]
