SugarHill Book Drop Date, April 1st, 2010

The publishing date for my partner, Andy Bradley's book, with co-author, Roger Wood, is April 1st 2010. THAT IS NOT AN EARLY APRIL FOOLS! Check out the title link to the University of Texas Press web-blurb on the book. The book is titled:

House of Hits: The Story of Houston's Gold Star/SugarHill Recording Studios

Andy has worked constantly and furiously on that book for 10 years. Rock producer legend, Mike Clink and financier, Chuck Jenness, urged us to write it, and write it they did. Also check out the pre-sale on

As for what I've been up to. Well, I'm so far behind in my commitment to you, constant reader, (note the singular) that I am shamed into not writing. Like not at all. Here's the list of danstuff that has not been reported:

Went to Peru.
Worked for the Recording Academy in New York.
Worked for the Recording Academy in LA.
Wound up work on an album for Jake Dalton.
Finished an amazing Halloween song by Craig Squires (in time for Halloween)!
Began working on a big project with Kareem Salama.
Continued, and expanded my work with Cari Quoyeser.
Worked with Jeff Walton for commercials for TSO, Delta Downs, and Texas Children's Hospital.
Started new songs with The Southern Backtones.
Done four more episodes of Live From SugarHill.
Road my 1977 motorcycle to see my Dad in Kerrville, Texas.
Played SK-1 onstage with Eric Jarvis, Matt Johnson, and Max Dyer in support of the band Crossing Togo.
Just met with Ken Sheppard and Scott Ayers about getting involved in their music.

Will I fill in the blanks in future posts? Even I do not know! I've been all busy being me and have not stopped to comment.

Back to work.
