I know I have a lot fun. And I think I would anyway, even if I didn't write mystery/thrillers. But perhaps certain personality types (extroverts, thrill-seekers) are drawn to crime writing.

Okay, do you remember the year? Was it 2005? Or maybe last year?

I'd really like to have more short stories by you in my Isku magazine.

Hey David, I left you a message on your hotmail account. I need to know the exact date for your flash story Sacrifice and the ACC. Leave a comment to me or check you hotmail. Thanks!

Thanks, Brian, but I have sailed past the rocky shores of research and am well on my way with this novel. But if you've got anything on the different jazz clubs along U Street in the early 40's, I'd eat that stuff up.

Thanks for the kind words on the sensibility of my stance on blogging. It's like "American Idol," though. I'm likely unwilling to do these things out of pure cussedness, more than anything else.

How's the research on DC going? I've got a ton of info on historical DC (my current project takes place there in 1844) if you could use a leg up on your research.

Ah, a man who has his priorities straight.

I write, I drink, I listen to blues.

Laura,

Yes, that's pretty bad. But yours was a one-time event. I went on the air every day with my slow-motion disaster.

Hey, David. re: Your comment on Imantrek's page on being the worst DJ ever---I bet you never accidentally turned off a hundred thousand watt radio station for three hours, sending the chief engineer out to the tower in a blizzard to turn the thing back on! Methinks I hold the record....

Bless you, Margot. I love librarians.

A money-back guarantee? You do realise the dollar/rand exchange rate is like seven to one, right?

Dennis,

Welcome. I'm always surprised when someone says they read The Planet. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoy it.

As for the book, I am so grateful when anyone buys it that I make this guarntee: If you read it and don't like it, I'll buy it back. That's a promise.

So far I haven't had to buy back more than one. Yeah, thanks, Mom.

Dammit.

Hi David.

Thanks for the invite. I've been a fan of The Planet for a long while and was one of the many who missed it when you went on hiatus.

Am still waiting for your book to arrive - not available in local bookstores - will let you know once I've read it. Thanks for making the stupid things that people do seem funny. I'd rather be laughing than crying.

Okay, I'm just a little fella, but if you don't mind, I'll try jumping on the muso talk happening over at this table.

Been playing blues harp since I was 16, but never played it in a band. My fave harps are the Lee Oskar series and if I had to pick a favourite harp player, it'd be Sonny Boy Williamson II. That song, Mighty Long Time sends shivers all through me, even at the mention of the title.

I've also been playing guitar for about as long, with a few years in a goth-industrial-rock band. I know, it ain't no blues, but I've always played plenty of slide guitar in my spare time. After I left that band, I even spent a couple of years working on some tunes under the name Danny Hawaii. Yeah, TD's got a story about him that I wrote.

Guitar-wise, I have a sparkly silver Danelectro DC3 as my electric. I'm a big fan of dirty, stripped down twangy sounds, ala Link Wray. I also have a Maton EM235C acoustic/electric with cutaway. Brass slides are my weapon of choice for this, but I've been known to use machetes and broken beer bottles at parties.

Jon,

I'm sure that's not true. What do you play? Give us the gear.

Pat,

I asked and I was shut out. That's when the phrase, "But I'm a fucking nominee" was coined.

David,

For a man of such talent: why weren't you part of the Thrillerfest band on stage in Phoenix? Don't tell me the drinking got in the way of the blues! I'm still waiting for a copy of that movie you're writing ...

Slan, Pat.

Ray,

The Ides of March are indeed my birthday. The wife took me out to dinner with my daughter and several friends last night and we drank to your health, Mr. Banks.

Love Junior Wells and Little Walter.

Also a big fan of the Mississippi boys - RL Burnside, T Model Ford and Asie Payton, among others.

I wore out my Big Mama Thornton cassette back in the day - thank God for iTunes - and no one will ever convince me there was a greater guitar player than Roy Buchanan.

Musselwhite is so damn good. I love that guy. But I think I owe more to Paul Butterfield than anyone else. Almost everything I played in the 70's grew out of what I could steal from Butterfield's solo on Driftin' and Driftin.'

Other influences were James Cotton, Little Walter, Sonny Boy (I and II), John Mayall, Junior Wells and Corky Siegel.

The Martin belonged to my wife's grandmother. The first song I played on it was a 30's swing number called Big Bad Bill Is Sweet William Now. When my wife heard me she said that her grandmother had played that song on that guitar. Spooky. It's almost like the song was in the guitar and all it took was for someone to coax it out.

I started playing harp because it fit in my pack. The downside was, I had to get good fast because everyone around me had a loaded weapon. Harsh critics, every one of them.
