I am a vegan. I just am not saying this to end up being political, mainly because for me it's not really about governmental policies. It's really all about overall health and wellness so I'm certainly not about striving to enforce my way of lifestyle on anybody else. I only mention this kind of as I find that most vegans are highly political of the eating. I likewise take pleasure in other animals and currently have a critical respect for every existence. So why am I not stating this on a Customer Blog? I'm not aiming to use your blog for a platform for distributing political views. I am aware this basically essentially even relevant, actually, yet it is actually strongly related me. You can try to eat in another way devoid of this being a political action.

Nevertheless in terms of politics proceed, I am not seriously about that. I just am concerned considerably more about understanding concepts of, consequently my visit to your site.

Just a note to thank you for the Ray Charles book. Tough but fair your love for the greatest musician of our lifetime shines through. Clearly a huge amount of work but a great gift to all of us who love Ray.

Watched vid Made it to another spring: so many NYC memories revived. Great song, engaging vid, lovely voice reminiscent of Pete Seeger who we, by chance preceded in a Peace March (the Ribbon) years ago. Yours has more depth, less twang. Lovely.

I think the Ray Charles book will be ideal for Mr. Wonderful, (self-named) of the combo widow/widower who are (were?) lovesick fools: your song captures it all.
Here is something for you to play with, freely given: for over 40 years I had a cat (actually 3) who was my daily nurse after many post-polio surgeries. When I re-established acquaintance w/Mr. W--he had built a dream home for his wife who lived 10 years in it--he drove 300 miles to take me out. Folk who knew both of us over the years, learning I would attach my life to his in an obscure , nearly culture-free, area called the Yoop (Michigan's U.P) but w/o a cat (his allergies) said "Keep the cat, lose the man." On many counts they were right, tho I have grown through our constant differences, e.g.. Tea Party vs. Coffee Party, once my partner he claims to be mien Host in his home. I sing classical music (coloratura to tenor) but jazz is a common great love. Ahhhh, music! Loved this song and your self-pub advice (left comment there). Va bien!

Just read your GD article in the 8/23/69 issue of RS while listening to the 5/30/69 Springer's Inn show on head phones. I've read a lot about the band but I think you described what they were about better than anyone. Really got a good mental image of what that crazy evening was like. Great stuff!

Hi, Michael,
I'm enjoying your book on classic jazz guitar. (Though some of my fellow guitar players have a bone to pick with you about "double-sixteens"--I hope you'll answer them!)
I admire the vigor of your prose. I'm going to read your bio of Ray Charles nest.
Take care, and thanks,
Mark Rhodes

I just read what I think was your story on the Dead that probably ran in 1969. It's contained in the anthology called Dead Reckonings, which I just checked out of my local library. It was an amazingly insightful, prescient story. And it still holds up all these years later for anyone trying to understand the Dead and their roots in San Francisco.

Wonderful job on the Stones book. Saw them in Newark and Toronto recently - can't count the other shows over the years. But nothing absolutely nothing matched that first freezing night in Palm Beach when I met and heard the Stones the first time!

I acquired your book 'Writing and Life' yesterday and, after a somewhat restless night, started reading it at 5 a.m. this morning. I am now on page 4 and doubt that I'll be going back to sleep anytime soon. Marvellous and captivating - you've got me hooked. I'm leaving for a holiday on the coast tomorrow and your little book is going with me. Have to ration it otherwise I will finish too soon. Thank you. It's great!

Enjoyed your presentation today. Inspiring really. Part of the reason I went to the Ray Symposium is because I'm in the middle of writing a book myself and felt both too busy and a little stuck. My book is related to my work and is different but your ideas about chronology being your friend and so on is helpful. My outline is MY friend, I just need to stick to it and keep it simple!

Lost Illusions. This book was a big deal for Francois Truffaut when he was a kid, as reflected in The 438 Blows, my favorite movie except maybe Day for Night.

I am awed to learn of your Ray Charles book and of your presence at the conference at Berklee on Sat., Sept 22, 2012. 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

I will do my best to remember all this as the day approaches and hope to somehow share in or acknowledge your participation there. Enjoy.

Please convey my fond regards to the elegant and talented Ms. Mandel. Happiness to you both.

And as the days tick by think from time to time of Elihu, my wife Linda's' life away from home. Consider stopping by and saying hi,

Think of spreading a bit of Ray on these kids' young minds.

You've got a key.

Hi Michael and Ellen. I hope all is going well. I just listened to "Pass it On." Here are my humble comments on it. The title and theme are terrific. People everywhere seem to be wanting a little cheer in their lives these days, most like likely due to the economic situation and the senseless wars in the Middle East. the melody is on target, the musicianship frames the song perfectly (I love the little choral part at the end), and finally, Michael's voice, except when he emotes a little too much in a few places, has an improved soft quality to it. The only part of the song in which I cringed a bit was the "dying baby" lyric. It just sounded out of place and a bit mawkish. I think if you changed that line you'd have yourself a real winning song here. Well boys and girls, I hope this was helpful. Love, Harry

Hi, Michael -- I'm in Elk this weekend!! (With my wife Sherry & daughter Michelle & her guy Chris.) And I have been remembering the times I visited your place in Elk some 40 years ago. It's still dramatic & beautiful here. I'm on sabbatical this year, from my usual teaching post at the University of Hawaii, and I have been teaching at the University of California, Berkeley, this spring semester. Let me know if your travels bring you to the Bay Area, or to Hawaii later this year. So glad to see that you are still active and handsome!! (As you always were!) My daughter is a music journalist, so I have been telling her about you. Best to Ellen. Aloha, Jon

hi i'm an italian economy student and i'm reading a book cured by you and Robert Dimery titled: "1001 DISCHI i capolavori della musica pop-rock internazionale".
It was a present by my dad who loves music like I do. I hope it will let me descover lot of music I ignored before. I wrote this comment because you asked for it or just because I understood so.
But i would like to live for music that is my biggest passion togheter with football and girls. So if you have something for me or if i could do something for you just let me know.
Goodbye and good luck

Right after I read your wonderful article, "The Magic of Writing," I read The Writer's Almanac piece on E.L. Doctorow (1/5/10). As both a writer and musician, you might enjoy this quote by Doctorow: "Somewhere along the line the rhythms and tonalities of music elided in my brain with the sounds that words make and the rhythm that sentences have."

I've added that quote to my collection (452 volumes, 1.6 million quotes) and I hope you'll enjoy it. If you like, I'll be glad to forward that edition of the Almanac to you.

Hi again Mr Lydon, long time no talk! (And no write!) Glad I found you web site; we had some conversation via mail a couple of years ago, when I had read your terrific book on Brother Ray. "You're really a FAN, you said when you read my mails to and from Ray's daughter Raenée Robinson. Well well, here I am again - and I'll get back to you soon, with some questions about your book (again). Keep cool, All the best, Bertil Mollberger.


February 21, 2010

Michael--Came across your Rolling Stone essay, Dead Zone. Your account of the Grateful Dead's 1969 gig at Springer's Inn comes very near to capturing the experience of hearing the Dead hit one of their many peaks. No one else, IMHO, did a better job of putting the Dead's sound into words--not an easy task.
Thank you for doing so....

Hi Michael,

saw U wrote a book about Ray Charles, maybe U can help me. I heard once in the radio "Summertime" by Ray Charles and Sarah Vaughan, I love that version but there's no way I can find in which record is that song... Will you help?
Thank U

Michael, I was the "promoter" of the 1969 Stones concert in Auburn you describe so amusingly in Flashbacks. I just returned to Auburn after a 40 year sojourn and its time to celebrate the 40th anniversary. Could we speak to get any other anecdotes you recall? It don't recall that Terry Reid went out for the second show and CB got his amp unplugged, all because of the late hour. Can you recall any details of this?

Hi Mike,

Peter Tillers tipped me off to your website. I recall your kindness in remembering Fred Bamber in some Yale 65 submittal. I roomed with and went through flight training with Woody Knapp -- who liked to be called Rick Knapp -- who was shot down in an A-4 and was our only class mate lost in the war I believe.

Wish I had some musical talent. Have a old grand piano but have written only one song for my own enjoyment (no lyrics). Nice to see your picture. Jim
