Hotel Reservations made, Wanda Kay and I have begun setting our alarm clock for midnight each night from now til the Bash, getting up and waiting for departure time. Don't wanna miss a Thang! Luv Ya and See Y'all there.
Larry Book has sent e-mails to everyone who picked last year and over twenty have replied in a positive manner within 24 hours of receiving Larry's e-mail.
An affirmative reply from Paul Colby made my day. Here is a man who booked the best of the best into The Bitter End, and he enjoyed the music at last years Gathering so much he's coming back for more. The fact the all of the women were passing out hugs by the dozen might have had something to do with him returning, but I like to think it was the music.
I didn't have time to spend much time with Paul, but in one of our brief conversations that took place at a guitar pull, he said that the guitar pull format took him back to a time when the music was fresh and great. Guitar pulls like this just don't happen anymore.
He also is bringing a few copies of his books which he will autograph. If you want to know how it really was in the '60's music scene...or were there and can't remember much about it...Paul's books will take you there.
Check out the "WHO'S COMING TO THE GATHERING" thread...new names are being posted every day.
