You & Don are near the same age. Was familiar with Tom Petty, & the Leaden brother with some connection to the Eagles, etc. but I believe he lived in Earleton so I guess he went to Sante Fe HS, if there was such a thing then. One of the bands he was in was called the Earleton Gonzo Band. He & buddy Glenn both play Big Daddy Mojo cbg's. And I know they're on this site.
I'm lookin' to buy some kind of fretless bass CBG when I get some disposable income. I'll be in touch. Glory & Bliss.
Did you know a Don Blitch from Gainesville? He went to high school around here, and used to open a lot for Gamble Rogers. He moved out to the Austin music scene for 20 years, but moved back & took over his dad's pool maintenance biz when he got married & started having kids in the early 90's.,
He plays guitars & sings well, but is probably an even better killer blues harp guy. He plays a CBG with long time friend Glenn Moody in a duo called, "Cracker the Box".
Hey James I caught myself looking at a bedpan at the flea market this weekend remembering your comments about how good they sound as cbg. But the guy wanted $65.00 and suddenly I was cheap.... Is that what they go for???? Should I go back this weekend? When did you leave Florida? Take care. Jim
