Having a daydream with John Sebastian backstage at the Pocono Folk Festival, and a nighttime acid flashback with @johnjacksonic during the show. A beautiful event, thank you Jim Della Croce, and here's to next year ✌️#poconofolkfestival #lovin'spoonful #onthebanksofthedelaware

The first annual Pocono Folk Festival will take place this upcoming Saturday, September 15, on the site of the old Fred Waring mansion overlooking the river. I'll be among the opening acts, all leading up to the Loving Spoonful's John Sebastian. My only decision is whether to go electric and risk the wrath of traditionalists, or go acoustic and risk the wrath of those who like it turned up with an overdriven amplifier. Probably a bit of both. I'll be accompanied by the great John Jackson on mandolin. See you there!!! #poconofolkfestival #johnjackson #delawarewatergap #doyoubelieveinmagic

Jim Carroll (Aug. 1 1949 - Sept. 11 2009). Jimmy I miss you more than all the others. This song is for you, my brother. #jimcarroll

In memory of Stephen Saban, 1945-2018, the afterhours mayor of downtown nightlife in the 80s, a writer who chronicled and celebrated the parade of outre characters and happenings. Trigger of the Continental organized a moving memorial to this bon vivant and man about town, that culminated in scattering Stephen’s ashes at the sites of the various clubs he frequented: the Mudd Club (his daughter Chloe does the honors), Area, Danceteria, the Palladium, and the notorious AM-PM. Stephen, we will always miss your charm, spirit, inspiration, and sense of mischief 🖤#stephensaban  #muddclub #detailsmagazine

In Jimi’s bedroom, where he lived in 1968/9 with Kathy Etchingham. The last stop on the BBC guitar documentary. So mind-blowing to be in his world and feel his spirit. Thank you director Matt O’Casey for the opportunity to celebrate this great instrument and looking forward to its showing in the fall. It’s a wrap! 🎬 🎬🎬#jimihendrix #voodoochile #bbcguitardocumentary

Day two of filming BBC guitar documentary...all the way from Les Paul putting a phono needle in an acoustic guitar to amplify it through a telephone receiver to FULL-ON Pete Townshend feedback! 🎸🎸🎸#BBC  #lespaul  #petetownshend

I’m the presenter for a BBC documentary on the evolution of the electric guitar.  Here I am at Macari’s music shop just off Denmark Street, home of the first British made fuzz effects pedal, demonstrating the Toneblender. #BBC  #Macarimusic  #fuzztone  #turnitup 🎸🎸🎸

Having a beer and a shot at CBGB before flying eight miles high to London. I know I should be scandalized but I’m kind of amused, as Hilly would be. Raising a glass 🥃#cbgb  #punkrockforever 

Kevn Kinney flew all the way to The Paradiso to see us and then I took a trip with him to this lovely seaside town to accompany his show at a local church. We ate herring and played music, what could be better?? #kevnkinney #hoornholland #drivinandcryin #brokenheartsandautoparts 💔🔩

The Paradiso awaits... 42 years of playing this venerable venue.
