Hi Folks! My new book is finally out. It's called Clean Cabbage In The Bucket (And Other Tales From The Irish Music Trenches).
You'll have to read one of the stories to find out why.
Written with four of my musical colleagues, Dennis O'Rourke, Frank Emerson, Harry O'Donoghue and Robbie O'Connell, who have been working the road, usually solo, since the early seventies, it's a collection of personal stories about our lives.
It's all here in 414 pages: the bars, the gigs, the guitars, the audiences, and the occasional fights; the hotels, the club owners, and the oddball characters we met along the way; the women, the music and more.
It's great story-telling, often hilarious, ribald, and sometimes poignant and a wild, fun ride through the world of traveling musicians. Oh yeah, there's a bunch of our puppy pictures too!
If you would like it signed or personalized, please indicate the name of the person to whom you would like it signed, and I'll be glad to do so.
