Willy's Cry in Italy

January 6, 2006

Well, things are moving along at their own time as always. Anyway there are good things brewing including the River Film Festival in Italy in June and "78" in April (see tour dates). Also, I will be doing some shows as Willy's Cry in Italy, sort of a flash to the past of my blues rock days. I can hear the prog and jazz snobs now but they don't pay my rent. You want more progressive stuff then support it more. OK, now back to the biz at hand and a bit of jolly for you prog types. Markus Reuter (Centrozoon, Europa String Choir) Schroeder and yours truly will be doing a trio thing for shows in Germany and other parts of the EU. We plan on recording in April. Hope you all are having a good new year so far and let it be not as much of a wash as predicted. In other words get off your ass and do something to help. Buy a CD instead of stealing it, write to your local music venues and demand better music or dump your giant car or at least use it to run over a politician.

Ciao for now kids. Willie

But This Time in New Orleans

November 14, 2005

Been awhile since my last update but not a lot to report until now. Gearing up for more shows including talks about an extended jam like 33 1/3 and 45 hour shows but this time in New Orleans. More as it develops. Also, the River film fest will be in June and July this year in Padua Italy and I will take part in that plus shows around that time in Germany as well and hoping to do some with Markus Reuter. Oh, and of course the mighty "78" hour jam in Padua this April. We plan on heading to Italy in February unless the New Orleans show is around that time. We shall see. More soon.

Love and kisses.

A Great Show in Padova! 14 Days of Films and Music on the Water

June 6, 2005

Just finished a great show here in Padova at the River Film Festival near my apartment. Very nice people and great fans. I hope all of you keep in touch and come to more shows. The film festival is 14 days of films and music on the water near a very old part of town, the Portello. Thanks to all the folks who made it possible and a special thanks to Emilio Della Chiesa for putting on the event and working hard to deal with my special needs for sound and stage.

A Wonderful Week in Germany

May 18, 2005

Just back from a wonderful week in Germany where we had two wonderful shows and a great visit and stay at the home of German drummer Schroeder and Penny. I must add that the more I play with Schroeder the more he is becoming one of my favorite drummers of all time.

We had a great warm up shown on the 10th in Freiburg at the Waldsee, a very nice club and grub spot near a lake followed by a fantastic show on the 15th in Wurzburg at the Cafe Cairo in a very old building below a castle. Great crowd and a great performance by all making it one of the best shows for me in many years and in the top 5 as far as I can remember. Both shows were recorded and the Cafe Cairo show was also video taped so hopefully some things to present will come from that.

A very special thanks to Charley from Freakshow and to all the musicians who performed at the shows, of course Schroeder on drums, Sylvia Oelkrug on violin, Johnny Gomer on second guitar, TL Mazumdar on keyboards and Jan Fitschen on bass and Chapman stick. Also to Hendrick for adding to the bass lineup for the first night. I plan on doing more shows in Germany this fall and winter so keep checking back for dates.

Thanks also to our friends at Der Geier, a wonderful little bar and food place near Schroeder's home or should I say within stumbling distance of his home. The name means the Vulture in English as it was once a hang of the the Third Reich in the old days but is now a very cool hang of alternative types. Yes Bernd, the cigs changed my life! Quack!

Looks like another 45 hour jam will be coming up in early October so I will post more information about that as it comes in. I may take part in a small jam this Saturday at the Factory04 in Padova and I have a confirmed date for the River Film Festival here on June 5.

More soon and take care,

Willie
