Four days on Route 66 brought Marla, Oliver (above) and me to Wilmette, Illinois and 17 degree weather. Highlights of the trip: Jason, at the Mexican restaurant in Amarillo Texas who threw out the menu and custom-made burittos exactly the way we wanted. Guy near Flagstaff who works a 70-hour week and refused to take $10 at the gas statio where he re-filled the motor oil. Dwayne, here in Wilmette, who accomodated a last-minute booking at 2 30 in the morning at this extended stay hotel where I took the picture above. Details to come.
In the Old Country - - Chicago - - I had a band, and another and another. Moved to California and now live in Studio City, writing about pop culture for Wired Magazine and New York Times while working on my new album "How To Be a Millionaire." Stay tuned!
