It's Sunday afternoon and Mary and I are coming down from an exciting Wildwood weekend. It was so much fun! Richie was amazing and sometimes I felt like I was reliving the seventies all over again, just without the haze...< Back
Needless to say, following Richie wasn't easy, but we gave it our best and it's safe to say Wildwood rocked like never before. I'm so impressed that the Poconuts understand we could have found someone who sounds exactly like Paul, and we could play the old songs note for note just like we recorded them-we play with bands that do that and some of them even play stadiums! But I'd go crazy. Jack and George would too and no one wants to see a crazier George! We chose to challenge ourselves with new arrangements, new instrumentation and a new musician who is so gifted that every time we play we reach for things we didn't know were even possible. The feeling is indescribable. The reward is undeniable.
I'm excited about what's ahead for Poco and I'm so thankful for those who are excited along with me. Thanks again to everyone who made Wildwood weekend a weekend Mary and I will never forget.
Happy Mother's Day!
