Ok, I’ve had it up to here! People Magazine has yet again passed me – all of us guys of a certain age – over for Sexiest Man Alive. I can’t believe it! They keep picking these young twerps who can’t seem to learn how to shave properly. (One can only imagine how far their ignorance extends, if you know what I mean. Personal grooming probably isn’t the end of it.) Admittedly, they did come close to getting it right a few years back whey they named Sean Connery, who was at the time well into his geezer-hood. Ah, well … there’s always next year.
Gang member Chas Hayek sent in this Club 47 calendar (below) from exactly 50 years ago. Many of the same acts as will be at Symphony Hall with me on the 28th, and the days/dates match up to this year: the 28th is a Saturday! (Symphony is selling briskly, by the way – the top tier is now Sold Out – so don’t dawdle if you want to come, or give tickets to some lucky people. http://www.bso.org/
Lined-up for a great time are the Kweskin Jug Band with Maria Muldaur, Geoff Muldaur, Bill Keith, and Patty Larkin. Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion will also be joining us in the merriment. The link, again, ishttp://www.bso.org/
I’m off on the road again this weekend:
Friday the 6th is One Longfellow in Portland, ME
Saturday the 7th is the Bull Run in Shirley, MA (with Eric Lilljequist and Dean Adrien joining me on stage), and
Sunday the 8th will be at Stage One in Fairfield, CT
Stay warm and enjoy yourselves!
All the best,
Quote of the Month: “As soon as someone tells me: ‘You’re rather sexy,’ I wish I could disappear. If somebody says: ‘You were voted the world’s sexiest man,’ I have no idea what that means. How do I respond? ‘Thank you’ is the best you can do. George Clooney is the world’s sexiest man, anyway.” – Daniel Craig
