The very late latest...

So when I started this whole blog thing I thought I'd be more diligent with posts and I'd be throwing down stuff all the time. Then I thought... "What makes me think anybody really cares what I have to say? So... I didn't document too much stuff. So this evening I checked out the stats to see how many people have been read the page and WOW!!! I was surprised!! So now I feel double bad that over 5000 people have read the same posts multiple times! Sorry to all 5000+ of you!
I plan to make more time to document stuff and perhaps I'll use this medium to answer questions I get often and maybe even rant about a thing or two. Ha! Maybe even post stuff that nobody cares about and perhaps someone will! HaHa! After all, it's my blog! So get ready....

In the spirit of keeping this about CMP, let me just say that I've started working on some new music for what will be my third record. An opportunity came up where my friend and producer Chris Cubeta said... "Hey.. I have some free time, ya wanna do some stuff?" So I figured that was a wink from God! I have been feeling the need to be creative and was thinking how I could spend that energy. New Video perhaps? Boom.... call from Chris Cubeta. Problem solved! I'm reluctant to even say a thing about it because this usually (warning.... rant beginning) starts the barrage of "when are you going to be done" questions.... and "why is it taking so long" and as a result the feeling of failure starts to leak in. The fact is that writing songs takes time... driving to NYC to record them takes time. Working essentially alone takes.... yup...time. Chris and I are extremely productive with our time, it's just for reasons that would be too boring too discuss.... the times we get together are spaced out. Thus, the completion of a whole record (12-14 songs) takes a great deal of time from concept to product in hand. I have a rather new approach I'm going to take to this record and I'll be discussing it more soon as it reveals itself a little more to me...

In some other news, Eric Wagner has joined the lineup of drummers and we just started rehearsing this past week. Went super well and exciting to get all the music together with him asap! Drop him a line at ewdrums@gmail.com and welcome him! 

And lastly, only 48 hours ago I received from Master Terry McInturff my new custom guitar. I've wanted something like this forever and yet I feel I've had it my whole life....

It took six months but was worth it. It features Bare Knuckle Pickups and it sounds great. Had two rehearsals with it and it sounds bright, clear and alive. Terry McInturff is a genius not recognized in his time. I'm honored to own his guitars and even more so I can call him a friend. 

Be well... be safe and as always... Stay Tuned.
