Message from David – June 17, 2017

Last weekend, Craig and I recorded some tracks at my place. Craig brought a Neumann U67 mike from Chicago, the same type of mike that I sang through in my very first recordings in 1970.  I had my favorite mike and my favorite guitar, my Black Knife Strat with a graphite neck, as well as the songs my father taught me. How could I ask for more?

I’m going to fly to Craig’s studio in a few weeks to finish the recording.

Happy Trails,

Photo from Craig’s studio of the 4 of us; Frank, myself, Teri, and Craig.

I’m having a lot of fun and being as creative as I’ve been since the 70s but as I’m so much older it’s very different now for me. Teri on drums, Craig on keyboard and Frank. Frank is an exceptional bass and a guitar player in this style of nearly jazz! He’s just a remarkable player. I’m limited in what I do well. I’ll play on at least one or two tracks but he’s far better in most cases than I, especially since my arthritis has really hampered my fingers. Many of you who also have arthritis will understand how frustrating it is.

Thus far, I’m very proud of the tracks, as is the 4 of us. We jell very well and they’re as good as it gets!! I’m going to record a bunch of vocals with Craig next week.

Happy Trails,
DC

I’m about to go to Chicago in the next 2 weeks to record in Craig’s state of the art studio to begin doing my tribute to my mentor and father. People may respond that it’s just worship of my male role model, especially as he basically abandoned me and my mother. I truly believe he was the most talented man I’ve ever known. Soooooooo, I’m going to go in and pay tribute to him with “Songs my father taught me”.

Teri and Frank are flying in. As you all know, we record Live! Live! Live! It’s the only authentic way! It’s the way I learned and was taught from 19 years of age!! I truly believe this will be my last recording, and it’s been something I’ve been thinking about for many years.

Happy Trails,
DC

HAPPY TRAILS…

HAPPY TRAILS…
A number of fans have been asking why David often uses ‘Happy Trails’ to end his messages. Fan’s first noticed David using this in the liner notes of ‘Dreams Are Nuthin’ More Than Wishes’ LP in 1973.
 
David said ‘It’s the song that Roy Rogers and his wife sang at the beginning and the end of their TV show when I was a very young boy!! I loved that song they sang on horseback.’

To my fans,

 I am grateful for having had another birthday but even more grateful for your messages of love and support. Thank you for those messages on my website and Facebook page. I am blessed to have such loyal, loving and caring fans.

I have some projects I am organising and I’ll let you know all about them when I can. I want to give back to society for all I have received for 49 years. My intention is to educate others about Dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Happy Trails,

DC
