This tune- "Tequila Under the Bridge" by, the Massacoustics. I was proud to have inspired the entire song with Matt and Andy Thompson. They ended up going crazy on this tune (crazy in a good way) getting Buffett Coral Reefers- Peter Mayer, Jim Mayer, Mac MacAnally, Robert Grenidge and Mike Utley to be on the recording of this tune and the video. The tune was a birthday gift to friend and fellow troubadour- Scott Kirby. I'm proud of my writing credit on this tune, the Thompson's are world-class!

This interview with journalist, Paul Burton of Boston's channel 4 news, on CBS, was filmed on Friday, December 29th, 2023 at the Hanover Police Boy's Club.

This story is about Doug "the Hammer" Smith (Book GOON and two movies, GOON I and II), a life-long friend and my kidney donor match, Doug's nothing more than a genuine HERO to me. This is an incredible story. It's an act of real toughness, friendship, sacrifice, love and kindness that is difficult for me to articulate... Please give a listen... Thank you, PAUL BURTON and DOUG SMITH.​​​​
