Yesterday, I recieved a call,from a very well known artist,with a couple of gold records under his Belt,He is doin a new CD to be released by Arista,We spent about an hr. on da phone,and he wants me to join him in this project,that would mean I would have to go to New York,for the recordin sessions,I would have the freedom to suggest things and introduce some new material into the mix,he asked if it would be somphin I would consider,Well yes! was my reply!!He wants me to bring some southern style blues to the sound,has listened to my stuff and feels it would fit right in,He is wanting to do a total blues CD,He has some serious health issues,and feels this will be his last project,so he wants to make a big statement!The next step, from what I understand, On the 15th of may he will be meeting with Arista,and the eng,and producer,and thats when they select the music team,and he sez he is going to DEMAND,that Iam there,GEZZ!!So I will get an offer from Arista,and have to nego,my contract with them, so I will just wait as see,I will tell every one his name, if and when it is resolved.

[updated:LAST EDITED ON May-04-06 AT 08:55 AM (EST)]hey 601....glad to here you and you know who are going to get together....i think you guys will be awesome together. After talking with him myself i can tell he is excited about the project because of his demand of being in control of the music. Sounds like they are letting him so far!

congrats man, now just because you go and get all famous on us doesn't mean i won't still take you up on your invite up to mississippi for some of that deer sausage and cornbread!

Ohmigod!!! Way too exciting!!! Big hugs. Are you gonna stop talking to us after this? I am sososo excited for you. (I didn't know Warren was so well connected.) Actually, I have no clue who this might be but it is obviously someone you respect and admire and who respects and admires you in return so what could be better than that. I'll be waiting to hear on the 15th so don't forget about us little folk.

not really connected but have been fortunate to "meet" some very cool people through the internet and hopefully soon in person...if things work out.
