The Junkers are big, in a small way

Read all about it on Aaron's blog, where today a surprising mention of my old band turned up.

Last night at the polls was the first time in memory that an election worker didn't ask, upon hearing my name, "Hey, aren't you that Civil War guy?"

Only rock 'n' roll

Did you know that, judging from my Site Meter statistics, a lot of folks find their way to this blog by searching for images of the musical group Juliette and the Licks?

Use Google to search for images of Juliette and the Licks, and you'll see why there is so much interest.
