Rock!



Back at Xmas John and Leesha were staying over for the holidays, and John mentioned that he was in the running to do a video for the long-lost Hendrix track "Valleys of Neptune." "Of course I'm only an outside shot to get it," he said with typical modesty. He showed me some impressive mock-ups, and talked about how his already crazy schedule would get crazier if he got this gig.

Well, he got it, and he nailed it. Check this shit out!

John is a wizard, and always has his hand in a gazillion cool projects, from indy films to commercials to TV shows and PBS specials. You've met him at least once (you played at his wedding).

His best man is a fan of yours: I ran into him at your HLAL and NY CD release parties...so, I'm not in any position to speak for John, but I know he's one of the biggest music fans I know, and he has a taste for eclectic and independent artists. Who knows what could happen?

hey Geoff
thanks for the promo! Glad you liked the video! It's getting a pretty big blitz of promo right now... can't wait to see where it leads!

ellen, I am actually your friend on FB... you DID play at alicia and my wedding a few years back... my best man was John Mentzer, who goes to all your album gigs and stuff... drop me a line any time, I am certain I'd be able to help you with video work. For ME, it's always about schedule. as long as I have time to do it, I can usually ALWAYS get it done!
