our pal hal plus 1

Hello. Right now i am looking for a picture (search term:'phone looks like a drum') and google keeps offering me 'dude looks like a lady'. And speaking of ladies, too often when i'm looking for entertaining/never-b4-seen pix for the blog, i'm directed to Lady Gaga and i'm always surprised, like what does LG have to do with "chimp plays accordion"?
So anyway, this is Hal Blaine with Don Ciccone (speaking of chimps! haha Don, just kidding).
Don sent me this picture the other day with a lovely email recalling how much he enjoyed meeting Hal at the Plant in Sausalito when ACC was recording White Courtesy Telephone there. We were all pretty damn excited to meet Hal and hang out with him. I mean really! (Howard Thompson also pictured). And speaking of Howard Thompson, he took this picture when ACC was in NYC to do some shows.. Hi Howard! And thank u Don!

your fragile mind

I love this song, ya hear me?  LOVE it.  Wouldnt a comp project featuring just this song be cool?    Honk if u want to record your own version.   Original by J Neo Marvin.  Happy Birthday Neo!  Thanks for writing such a beautiful song.

she's getting married

A little bird just told me that Sunshine will be walking down the aisle in September.  It will be an outdoor wedding.  It can be hot in Cali at that time so i think ACC will make an appearance in a big hat, which the little lady herself requested.   OK Sunshine, u got it!

pills, PIL, pillow

Hey i just finished this corset-style pillow cover.  Now what about this "pills, PIL, pillow" bidness? Readers of the ol' A&R Report may remember that "pills, PIL and pillow" was one reader's response to the survey question "What would you like to have in your hospital room?" And speaking of Howard Thompson,  reader Steve Leeds answered that he'd like to have Howard in his hospy room. Is that cute or what? Where is ol' Steve Leeds these days? Could this be him?

Spotted in downtown San Rafael.

If i could remember how 2 add a caption, the caption would be "For sure click this pic".

yeah it all looks real pretty from here

click the pic

And speaking of cover tunes, ACC is finally recording some X-TAL songs. First up is Your Fragile Mind. I love that song. And i love Neo, the songwriter.
He has another great song titled Ragamuffin Girl. "I wanna bury my face in your hair, telephone's ringing but i dont care." That line always gets me.
Ahh that voice of his. And that gtr playing. And the writing. Sheesh, talk about hot.

Pix taken by ol' ACC in downtown Sausalito on the 4th. In case u r wondering who Duane Sherwood is, click here.

Not this George, another George. George Earth. But this picture of George Clooney could look a little like George Earth if George Earth was trying to look like George Clooney.
Happy Birthday G!

(handsome) devil's haircut

Just gave R this cute haircut. And speaking of cute, R is working on another song with Bruce, perhaps ol' ACC will be invited 2 play on it. We'll see. That R can be a real taskmaster.
What's up with this image? It comes up alot when i look for pix, especially if my search term contains the word "hairy".
No tour or shows or anything...2busy enjoying a chocolate/rosemary pastry. Seriously good.

metallica machine music

I got all excited when i first saw this, but it's not ezzackly the way i envisioned it, which would be Lou as the only vocalist. I always like Metallica until ol' whats-his-name starts screaming.
No tour or shows or anything...2busy riding the white lightning.
