What a trip life is! I just finished a live phone interview with a radio station in Boston. It turned out that the DJ I spoke with, was in a rock band in Boston during the same time I was there. He remembered my band Red and I remember the band he was in, Skin. Both played the usual Boston clubs, The Rat, Spit, The Channel etc. etc…
We had a nice chat about the Boston scene and about La Semana. He played his favorite cut from the album: Cocteau.
And yes, you are right, I did this interview with Boston radio one day after our shows there….
It’s so much fun to be able to share in what sounds like a most enjoyable tour. How great to find friends everywhere. That makes us all feel good.

If that’s not successful – how about, you OL, creating FlameRock as an experiment (Bobby Darin used to call this: reinventing yourself.)
Just out of curiosity, did you guys play rock all or were you already playing Flamenco?
