Joan Osborne 1992

It is hard to believe that it has been twenty years since I saw Joan perform in front of seven people on a cold winter night at Wetlands. When she did her cover of “Son of a Preacher Man” it was obvious to me (I know very little about these things) that she was a force of nature and would one day become famous…A year or so later, she did make it big when her song “If God Was One of Us” went national…

NYC 2008

I think this is a pretty decent photograph. I go out of my way to get a very talented guitarist to sing Happy Birthday to my daughter, and he’s rocking his butt off, but my kid is much more concerned with what her friends are doing. It could have been Jimi Hendrix and she would still say “who cares, he’s boring daddy”…
