Ft. Worth native and music producer/sex symbol T Bone Burnett turned 60 on January 14th. T Bone is one of my all time favorite people, and possibly the most underrated songwriter on the planet. I was treated to a private performance at the Embargo Club in Ft. Worth in November by T Bone and friends Robert Rodriguez and Harry Dean Stanton. It was a very surreal evening but I know it actually happened because I can still play it on my camcorder. The performance was part of the first annual Lone Star Film Festival hosted by my friend Tom Huckabee. Tom tipped me off about the gig so I hauled A to FW. An amazing evening. T Bone is the coolest guy alive. End of paragraph, end of story.

I got a very nice email this week from a Mr. Zacron. Zacron is the artist who designed the eternally amazing Led Zeppelin III album cover. You can see more of his work at zacron.com. We hope to have more Zacron information soon!

Today January 9th is Jimmy Page’s 64th birthday. In observation of this most splendid occasion, I wore my special Led Zeppelin Holy Suit all day, the same one I wore to the big Zep gig at the O2 in December. By the way I’m beginning a campaign to rename Jimmy ‘The Pagan Bastard.’ Join me, won’t you?
