Oct 17 12:23 A.M.

Spoke with my close friend Joseph Budenholzer tonight (Backworld) about playing in my show Oct 19 in NYC …Cooking up several ‘cameos’ on different songs,,,, He told me about the beautiful experience he had recently with his concert in Switzerland. The difference between the New York audience and the European audience…Backworld received tumultuous applause and felt very appreciated –whereas in their home town of New York, they frequently wonder why they are bothering…

What is the reason for this?

Why are so many artists not appreciated ‘at home’?

mmmm. A special kiss to the lovely men who recently wrote to me from Argentina and Portugal……..
