I want to send a big huge “thanks and well done!” to Glen and the staff at New Times for publishing the music insert Soundcheck.
It’s beautiful, and for many of us musical professionals, I’m sure it will be a “coffee table book.”
Notwithstanding the fact that I did shoehorn listings of myself in various permutations (and believe me, friends and foes did let me know this did not slip right by), there are tons of information that lots of us will use on a weekly and maybe daily basis.
It’s funny. I came to SLO to go to Cal Poly and get out of the music field, however as time passed, I got deeper into the music scene, and 15 years ago I was able to shed my day job and make a living playing music. Granted, it’s not much of a life, and you have to get by on a little, but somehow my son Charlie has decided to follow in my footsteps.
But it’s publications like Soundcheck, the community, the venues, the music stores, and the great tourist base that help us keep keepin’ on. Well done!
