Back in late June, I was on the coast in Manzanita, performing mainly originals and some cover tunes at The Hoffman Center. Intimate and responsive crowd. Sold some CDs, too. I was joined on stage for Elton John’s, “Love Song,” by long time friend, Sher Ireland.
Been jamming all summer with the band, HomeBrew, at mostly private events like, auctions, to weddings, graduations and an upcoming 50 year high school reunion.
So yeah…things are groovin’!!
This was the first Elton John song I ever learned. I can still remember being in the basement of my dad’s church where there was an upright piano. On the piano itself, an Elton John songbook. I opened the book to “Your Song,” and quickly learned it.
This version was fun to record in my own studio. I get help from Norm Bowler, whose the president of the independent label I’m with, Grumpy Old Bear from Seattle, WA. I sent him my recorded tracks and he mixed it together. I hope you enjoy “Your Song.”
With my high school cover band – “Bobby Bullet and the Revolvers.” I was a revolver.
