Warren dats what Iam worried about, today is the 8th, and that darn thing is supposed to be at the dealer on the 12th,and they are supposed to ship to me!!GEZZ it might get here under the wire!!But I really don't know when Arista wants to start,the 15th is just when you know who is mettin with Arista,to line out the sessions,and dates,but if they want this project out before XMAS then it may go pretty quick!! I dunnaknow!!But I want dat national so I can spend some time gittin ta know her!!

Grady, Iam really not tryin ta keep it a secret,I just don't know anymore than that till after the 15th,thats when Iam supposed to know everything,such as time place and all dat,Iam just very cautious,at this point,I will feel better when I know everything,Its easy for people to talk ,but another for them to produce,I will hafta see what this guy can produce,Ive been told the guy is a square shooter,But I have been duped by some so called square shooters before,Lets just say this,yes Iam excited,however there has been a few warning signs and red flags as well,Thats all I can say at this time, but for him and me,the meeting that is supposed to take place on da 15th, to clear it all up for him,will clear it up for me as well,Lets see what happens then,or will I be put off till another meeting takes place???

I love Michael J. Fox and he IS a VIP but does he have a VIG coming up, now does he? It's just interesting that he told you it was for him so as to let you know. Glad it's all working out for you and you deserve it.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON May-09-06 AT 01:00 PM (EST)]maybe having a sore tooth would make your blues playing even better...the sore tooth blues :)

As far as driving...it is a long haul. I had to fly to texas with all my photography gear (studio strobes and such) and used roadie cases and everything was fine...but yeah i would have been in trouble if they lost it. You might want to check how much it would cost to fly and ship your guitars seperately (fedex, ups etc)...might end up being cheaper in the long run than driving with fuel costs, food and hotels (if you don't drive straight through which i suggest you don't do)
