what's rong...

so, I'm gone for the week on a tour bus with people I don't know
to play music I don't know
in front of people
who don't know me.
what's wrong with that?

life is improvised.

stay tuned


  1. Amen to that! More people should ride on buses (and trains, and subways, and trolleys...) with people they don't know. And no cell phones either, that's cheating. You learn so much about the world that way (and the environmental advantages don't hurt, either).

    Have a good trip, fare forward voyager!

  2. Speaking of not knowing stuff, you know what I don't know?

    Thela Hun Ginjeet recorded monologue. Real? I certainly hope so, because I've been telling people it is. (In my continuing efforts to keep King Crimson interesting to friends.)

  3. Hi adrian, it all sounds good to me,just make sure that you sleep the right way round on the bunk beds.

    If you have the time i would really appreciate any info on the gtr fx you used on the boys keep swinging solo.
    i know you must have been asked this a million times and i have researched it on the internet but to no avail.
    i am guessing aside from distortion some sort of ring modulation was involved? The bit at the end of the solo which sounds like the world being blasted by a ray gun is something which i would like to experiment with myself.How on earth did you do it chap?Heres my email address

    good luck with the tour

  4. Adrian,
    I was just wondering if you could give us some insight into what we may be hearing live soon. Are you doing a solo acoustic set or are the Slicks along for the ride on this mini magical mystery tour?

    Good luck with the tour and beware! You'll be in the land of the Fighting Irish on St. Paddy's day (night). Don't forget your green.

  5. Adrian, us Umphrey's McGee fans are more versed in your work then you might realize. MANY of us are very very excited about the upcoming shows this week and we're glad you're looking forward to them too - we're humbled that you'd come out to play for us :)

  6. I can't wait for Wednesday and Saturday. Much of the Umphrey's fanbase has an incredible amount of respect for you and your work. I know I'm not the only one excited about this pairing.

  7. It's funny how this music thing goes, both my sons Dbl Bass musicians. Started feeding them the best of Blues,Rock,Jazz early on. Six years ago my youngest, 16 now yikes, introduced Dad to Les, UM and its been back and forth since. 16 year old plays a 6 string fretless Roscoe like a extension of his body. You will see him in GR tonight big kid, big hair, Buddy Holly glasses, a big fan of your work. Can't wait, going to be a great show!

  8. We miss you.

    Are you on the bus, or off the bus?
