Lou Reed Tribute

Lou Reed was part of the soundtrack of my life. His music inspired a generation. 

This past July I was invited to Lake George to perform at a benefit at Sandy's Clam Bar for a dear friend Ray Jett.  I met Ray years ago in Key West where I was living and performing.  His old music partner Pete Jarvis (still performing in Key West in the Pete + Wayne) informed me that Ray was in a nursing home with late stage Alzheimer's. The benefit was for his family and the intense cost to care for him.  How could I say no?

I reunited with Wayne Hammond (he played bass on my Retracing CD in 1998) and met cool guitarist songwriter Margo Macero.  Really fun to meet a young female guitarist with so much groove and talent.
