1. Be Yourself
2. Anna Marie

Those familiar with the Chicago punk scene will recognize the drum head as the one used for Silver Abuse, as Robert Porche also plays with that band. Stay tuned for a new and improved drum head, as well as a possible live album later this year from The Jerrys.

An Evening with Karl Green of Herman’s Hermits

Karl Green 01

My wife and I attended an intimate performance and interview with Karl Green of Herman’s Hermits on WZRD Chicago 88.3 FM last night. We were rewarded for our early arrival with a great sound check performance that included snippets of such songs as the Beatles’ “Mother Nature’s Son.”

Karl Green 02

The live-air interview was conducted in front of a small studio audience who got to hear Karl and Mike Bruccoleri play eight Herman’s Hermits’ hits:

  • I’m Into Something Good
  • Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat
  • Listen People
  • Wonderful World
  • Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter
  • Silhouettes
  • I’m Henry VIII, I Am
  • There’s a Kind Of Hush All Over the World

Not only was it a treat to meet someone who has entertained and influenced me from an early age, but Karl made the evening a memorable one for everyone with his humor and great stories on and off the air.

My Fender Acoustic Guitar

Fender Acoustic Guitar

When I recently discovered that I had more than a few stickers lying around, I decided that my Fender CD60CE dreadnought guitar was fair game for a few of them and proceeded to give it a new look. I’m guessing this is only the start, but for now, this is what my guitar looks like. The stickers I used were The Who (3), Propellerhead Reason (3), WZRD’s 40th Anniversary, and Batman. Long live rock.
